Upon arrival in the evening it was confusing trying to figure out where the reception was. It turned that the restaurant was the reception which was not mentioned anywhere. Quite strange, especially since the restaurant was owned by someone else. The restaurant owner was a great guy and very helpful. The location is very quiet, right on the lake but not much else around. Perfect if you just want to wind down, sit around and read a book. I found it a bit too remote, far from everything. The cabin was clean and new. The shower was very big and had endless flow of hot water. Very comfortable bed. Sufficient kitchenette. The entrance door didn't have blinds or curtains so it lacked privacy. If you were seated at the dining table you could see the neighbours having their meal. When the key is removed from the room the outside light does not work. Not much fun in the pitch black and rain trying to find the key hole. We stayed for two nights and had no cleaning service. Also the internet is a rip off. You get 50MB free which is practically 2 minutes on the internet and then $5.00 for every 50MB.
