We validate all the great things written about this cottage. It is very private, clean and all basic supplies are provided. You will also see animals (deer, raccoons, birds). Jacques is a great host, he was there to greet us at check-in and show us around. Note that there is a fire pit but no BBQ (you could however ask Jacques to make a small BBQ available for you). We cooked our food on the fire pit and it was great!
The beach/lake access is now provided through a small hotel near the lake (this is a new access, we were the first ones to try it). Jacques has a membership card that allows 2 people to access it for free. The water is very clean (great for swimming!) and the beach access point was not crowded at all (even on a beautiful sunny week-end). Canoes, picnic tables and some long chairs are available. Loved it! Note however that we drove to the beach access point as the walk would not be very pleasant (not much of a shoulder to walk on). 3 min. drive and free parking available.
Some reviews mentioned a smoke smell inside the cottage. It was faint if any and it should not be a source of concern. We are non-smokers and heavily dislike the smell of smoke, yet we were not bothered.
