Family snowmobile trip

Review submitted: February 9, 2014   Date of arrival: February 1, 2014

We rented this cottage for a weekend snowmobile trip and it was exactly as described. Close to the trail system, not far from town. The cottage was nice, clean and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the fireplace after coming in from the cold. The owner was pleasant and responsive. I would recommend this cottage for a summer or winter vacation.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly, romantic getaway

Wonderful cottage!!!

Review submitted: September 11, 2011   Date of arrival: September 1, 2011

We only had a very short stay but this cottage was a wonderful stop for me and my family! Beautiful views, quiet, and very very comfortable! Lots of windows provided for some cool breezes throughout the day and evenings. A very nice and clean beach which our daughter thoroughly enjoyed. There is a wonderful deck overlooking the lake. Plenty of room in the cottage and a gorgeous kitchen stocked with just about anything one would need to create gourmet meals. Didn't have one issue with our accomodations!
We plan on staying at this terrific location for a longer period next summer. Thank you Hans!

Really enjoyed our "winter time" up at Little Bear Beach Collge. Very clean and the very friendly setup (with basic supplies of home) made it real easy to come in and enjoy our time there. Also really enjoyed the wood stove and supply of good firewood provided. Spent the time playing games, doing cross country skiing, and walking the local paths. Thanks for another great winter getaway for our family.The Thelen Family
