  • Nice house

    Nice house. We got some snow and the cottage was warm and really great for kids. Lots of interesting books, movies and table-games. It is close to the shops, and a great place to stay while exploring Mackenzie country. We enjoyed our stay there.

  • We love this bach

    We love this bach. Really handy location, fenced for the Dog, good heatpump. Also, great value for the price and Valerie has really made an effort to keep it well-maintained and set up with all the things a family could possibly need. Thanks!

    We loved staying here! The cottage was immaculately presented and had so many wonderful touches that made it welcoming and homely. Close to all amenities, and it was lovely and warm on what was one of the coldest nights of the winter. Had everything we needed for a wonderful stay and I loved that we were able to bring our dog. We would definitely stay here again!
