Review of K. K.'s stay in Aug 2019


Guest Comments: I can't get the rating boxes to open, so I'll rate the four criteria here. Overall vacation experience: Excellent, Cleanliness of cottage: Very clean, Amenities at cottage: Very Good - although the kettle didn't work, the latch on the main door window was broken so we couldn't close the window, and two lamps in the living room didn't work so it was difficult to read in there at night - these points are simply feedback, not critique! Experience with staff: Excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our week as Two Loons, and would definitely book there again, and/or recommend it to friends. :) Sincerely, Kelly

CCR Reply: Thanks you so much for the feedback. We have informed the owner about the items you have mentioned.

Review of R. M.'s stay in Aug 2019


Guest Comments: Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful cottage. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope we can book soon for next year. From the well appointed kitchen to the lovely shoreline, everything was just what we wanted. We purchased a bath mat for the inside of the tub as it was quite slippery. Please let us know when we can book 2 weeks for next year.

Review of J. H.'s stay in Jul 2019


Guest Comments: Overall, a great experience from booking through departure. Simple booking process, great response time for questions and clear and concise instructions that covered everything from directions to local amenities. The cottage itself was great, living space was open with nice big windows for great view of the lake. Bedrooms were clean and functional. The screened in room was where we spent a lot of time too, great breeze and escape from the bugs at dusk. Deck the length of the cottage, fire pit right on the shore and a floating dock with deep water at the end. There was also another shallow swimming area that was sandy and would be great for kids. Would definitely return again in the future.
