Review of G. G.'s stay in Jul 2019


Guest Comments: The cottage was exactly what we were hoping for. It was very spacious and had everything we needed. We spent 90% of our time outside where the lake was amazingly swimable and having the beach area is great for the kids. We're planning on coming back to the same cottage again next year!
