“Stayed 3 nights, and we had a blast. Wish it could have lasted. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed for cooking and cleaning. There is a lot to do at the cabin and in the area. Highly recommend!”
“Daniel & Tawnya we're kind & amazing hosts. Their cottage was beautiful with a nice view. Everything was clean and organized. Daniel was quick to respond if we needed anything during our stay. The cottage looks just like the pictures and I would definitely go back here.”
“Really great spot to stay! The place was so so clean, it didn’t even feel like a cottage, especially with the new feeling Reno’s. Bed was comfortable, shower was hot and the view was lovely.”
“Dan and Tawnya did amazing work on this property! Very lovely people, and available if ever we needed anything. Place was nice and clean. We had a great time there with our golden retriever that just loves the water! We had fun on the kayaks, swimming, water trampoline and fishing. Beach is literally 2 mins away and it is beautiful. Also went to the Egan chutes (20 mins drive) for a nice hike and lovely view. It was a perfect get away from reality with no cell service so we could really detach from work! Thanks again for having us!”
“We spent a week at Daniel and Tawnya’s Cozy Cottage and had a blast! It’s a great, dogfriendly spot. Everything is as described/pictured in the listing. The cabin has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We had a great time swimming, kayaking and fishing in the river, and relaxing by the campfire at night. Daniel and Tawnya are amazing hosts and obviously put a lot of thought and care into what they do. Thanks for a great stay!”
“Daniel and Tawnya are wonderful! You can feel the genuine care and love they put into the property. I rent Airbnb’s frequently, and this was by far my favourite stay. The property is beautiful, right on the river, with canoes and kayaks to go explore in. There’s a beautiful beach minutes away. Daniel and Tawnya are responsive hosts but you are given all the privacy you would like as well. Can’t recommend this place enough. I will most certainly be going back!”
