Not only was it a rip off at $250/night for a cottage,it was abysmal to say the least. The cottage was a run down shack made of plywood. The toilet had to be manually taken apart each flush to stop it from running, the kitchen draw fell out nearly injuring the kids and the blankets provided in the rooms were filthy and old. We wouldnt even let a dog lie on it, in fact maybe a dog did use it. We also felt the staff unfriendly. Overall an expensive and dissapointing experience.Not recommended. The nearby dog sledding at Winterdance made up for it however.

Management response:Responded October 1, 2004

I felt it necessary to write a response to the tripadvisor review entitled "atrocious"! FIrst of all, I am not even sure they are writing about our resort. The description of the cottage as a "run-down shack made of plywood" is at best, just not correct and at the worst is slanderous! It is not in any way a fair assessment of our cottages. Pictures and virtual tours of our property can be found on our web-site at (commercial URL). All of our units are equal in appearance and decor to what you see on the web-site....we do not just show the best units! If the toilet or anything else was broken, all it takes is mentioning it and the defect would have been fixed immediately (I do the maintenance myself!). Please do not believe everything you read, investigate for yourself! We do not pretend to be a 5 star luxury resort, but we do pride ourselves on providing clean, comfortable accommodations that compare favourably to anyone's facilities in the "cottage resort" environment. Please come and see for yourselves!
