5/5 Excellent

Wonderful Winter Weekend
Absolutely lovely property! Beautiful finishes with exposed wood and two stone fireplaces. Windows look out onto a beautiful lake and rolling hills. Bathroom equipped with a lovely tub for soaking. Kitchen has all you need. Just perfect. We were a family of four adults who did not mind the stairs to the property. An elderly couple might find them difficult.

5/5 Excellent

Heavenly retreat on Meech Lake
We enjoyed family day weekend at this beautiful property. The stone and wood finishes were perfect along with two wood burning fireplaces. I was impressed with all the little touches, the elevated kitchen wares, the high quality linens and pillows, the pre-assembled fire to get us started, there wasn't a thing that was overlooked or missing. We will definitely be back. Thanks Nancy for sharing your property with us.

Beautiful property on an iconic Canadian lake
This is a wonderful spacious house. The kitchen is extremely well set up and very high end. The house is bright and open. Although the lake was still frozen we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
