This cottage has everything you need and more. Very private and quiet river. We were able to launch our jet ski and enjoy the rest of the lake. Cottage was very comfortable. Hosts were great and very easy to communicate with. Will be back for sure!

Great cottage, great location
Really incredible cottage on a beautifully swimmable and isolated part of Moon River. Short drive to Bala for provisioning. Spent many hours on the large dock. No problem accommodating a number of guests including family and friends with children and infants too! Always enough space and very well appointed. Our pleasure to be able to rent!
