When we first pulled up we were greeted by Heidi the German shepard. Usually I'm kinda hesitant about that type of breed but once getting to know her she was very friendly. She didn't ever bite just bark to warn that someone's on the property. Joerg was away on a business trip so his wife Nancy welcomed us to the cottage. She was very hospitable and even told us about the Mccaw they have. The place was the size of a pretty good sized studio. All the dimensions of the ceiling really added character to the place. The decor was relaxing and not too overbearing. She was a very nice host and always when we saw her she had a smile on her face. She was very pleasant to be around. She had told us that her husband had built the cottages. Which is very impressive and just goes to show how much thought was put into this place. Our trip ended in a evacuation because of all the fires nearbye. We really appreciated how quickly Nancy informed us about what was going on. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone who wants a little get away.

This is a lovely little place. Very quiet and somewhat remote. Great for a retreat. Joerge and his wife and even their dog Heidi were very welcoming. The space was more spacious and more tastefully decorated than we expected with a useable kitchenette and full refrigerator. Also a nice little grill area where you can sit out and grill food. Great for the cost!

This is an amazing place with very nice interior and away from large city's noises and busy streets! It is close to Collins lake, which is a great place to relax and unwind. Joerg is also a great host and very helpful. He responded to all of my inquiries very quickly. I will definitely go there again next time.

Absolutely perfectly small apartment with exactly what you need and nothing you don't. Clean, hot water, window A/C, cooking utensils, etc... I would stay there again if I ever get to travel that way again.
