“Great family vacay!”

The Heartwell was exactly as described. The cottage is well maintained and extremely clean. There is a great beachy area in the back for the kids, a walkway leads to a makeshift boat slip that is full of frogs and crayfish for the kids to catch and there is a large firepit at the water for campfires at night. We kayaked and tubed through the channel to the open bay at the end where the water was cool and clean for swimming. There is a public beach a 10 minute walk away (5 min. bike ride) which is also a great sandy place to swim. The kitchen is a little small and there is no dishwasher so be prepared, but it was great to have a washer/dryer. There is also an amazing vhs movie collection for winding down at night.

Thanks for a great vacation!

“Perfect for Families, Children and Pups”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage was great and had subtle touches of home.

It provided everything you would need to prepare meals, wash laundry and bathe, as well as baby amenities (ie. Highchair, Baby monitor, Playpen). There was a lot of board games and a great collection of disney movies, which the kids loved!

The property was secluded and quiet and being in the cove helped reduced the lake winds. The yard was AWESOME. The sandy beach made the "Cottage Experience" complete and allowed the kids to play in the sand on colder days when we couldn't go to the beach. The "channel," albeit a bedrock (slimmy), was nice for a quick dip, fish, catch frogs and to let the pups swim.

Improvements:
- lights/fans were not working upon arrival. (no air conditioning either)
- small ant problem
- beds are on the uncomfortable side
- a large black dog from the neighbours house wandered over frequently, which was scary because there was small children (8 months, 3 and 7), plus 2 other dogs.
- only one kayak, more non-motorized activities would be nice

Other than that, we had a great time, and would love to go back.
