Very nice cottage on a quiet, beautiful lake. Everything in the cottage is in good shape, very clean and well appointed - soaps, towels, linens. Comfortable furniture with great view of the lake. Kitchen very nicely setup with everything from coffee maker & filters to plenty of pots, pans, bowls, utensils, etc. Very nice dock with clean and deep water for diving and swimming. 2 adult kayaks and 2 small ones for kids was great. About 12 min drive into town for Tim Hortons, Store, Gas. Also note that no cell service at the cottage. Need to go to town or at least about 5 min down the road - but nothing wrong with being unplugged for a few days. About 45 min from Ottawa. Great find.

We had a great time at Anu's place. The canoes and life jackets in all sizes made it easy to enjoy time on the lake. The cottage is very well equipped and the lake view is stunning.

If you are looking to get away from it if you are looking to unplug and find comfort in a quiet secluded area that is great for your family, then this is the place to be. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The interior of the cottage is spacious and can easily accomodate 4 adults and 4 kids. Anu is a great hostess and she has thought of it all. Fresh linens and towels are ready for each guest. She provides soap, shampoo, and if you forgot the bug spray its there too. The kitchen is well stocked with all appliances, dinner wear, stove, microwave, utensils, kettle, coffepot and more. You have access to a great dock for swimming and also the use of the 3 kayaks as well. There are 4 life jackets. 1 adult and 3 kids sizes. The outdoor screened in gazebo is a very nice touch for outdoor eating or relaxing. There is a dvd tv in the kids room for a movie night and the main tv you have basic satelite access. This is a place to unplug however, so no cell service or internet.... that is not a bad thing!! The supermarket is a short distance away on the main road for and food needs. This place is wonderful. Anu is very good at communicating. I wish we had more then a couple nights to enjoy the place. We will be returning. Thank you Anu for sharing your space.
