Bella Vista is a wonderfully private cottage with lovely waterfront on a very quiet lake. Cottage contained everything we could want or need and was a comfortable fit for the three generations of our family. Children - 8 and 12 - really enjoyed their space downstairs, games, fooseball, quiet time for reading, etc. The adults enjoyed their space downstairs too!!! The big, completely enclosed deck off the living room was great for barbecuing and evening get togethers. Very spacious cottage with comfortable beds and lots of seating options, The welcoming notes and bottle of wine were a lovely touch we appreciated. Outside the various levels of seating enabled us to catch the sun most of the day, and the children, and granny, enjoyed the kayaks!

Thank you for making your home available, we had an amazing two weeks, and hope to visit again. next year.

Thanks Janet! We are very happy to hear all generations of your family enjoyed their time at Bella Vista. Bella Vista really is a great place for families to come together and enjoy the great outdoors (and indoors!). There are lots of great activities in the area in winter time as well. We look forward to having you stay with us again soon!

Bella Vista is a beautiful and spacious cottage on a clean and quiet lake. It's a great place for swimming, fishing and relaxing. The cottage has a highly functional kitchen, comfortable furniture and beds,and lots of room for a family to spread out. The decks and dock are very good places to read and enjoy the natural surroundings. We loved every minute at this cottage!

Hi Amy,

Thank you for you kind words! We greatly enjoyed having you there and I hope you can come and visit again in the future! This is a perfect place to get away and connect with family. You should consider a winter getaway! With the close proximity to Sir Sam's Ski this is a great family winter vacation getaway!

We loved our stay at Bella Vista. Beautiful setting. The whole family enjoyed it very much. We would like to return. Only thing holding us back is that our grand daughter will be a little terror by then. Lol. So with all the stairs we are just a little worried.

I'm glad to hear that your family enjoyed their stay at Bella Vista. We would love to have you back again! Maybe once your daughter is a little older and can manage the stairs! :) Be sure to consider a winter stay! The Winterdance dogsled tours are amazing!

This was an absolute dream cottage rental! It was exceptionally clean and well maintained and everything we could possibly need was there. It was close enough to town that running in for groceries and odds and ends wasn't a big deal. The lake is small which meant pretty much zero motor boat traffic so the area was quiet and extremely safe for swimming. There are quite a few cottages on the lake, but the dense tree cover makes the area feel very private and secluded. We stayed with four adults and two kids and there was plenty of space. The basement area meant the kids had somewhere to call their own. You can't go wrong with this rental!

Thank you for your kind review Terri! Renting to families like yours puts a smile on my face. You hit on many of the great features of this cottage. Quiet, family friendly, and creating lifelong memories. This is what cottaging is all about! We look forward to having you and your family back again in the future!

We had an amazing time at Bella Vista! The cottage was clean, well stocked and the beds were extremely comfortable.

We spent most of our time on the dock and swimming in the lake however, we didn't have much luck fishing ( we had lots of fun trying though!)

The only minor complaint we had was how musty the basement in the cotttage smelled. We emptied the de-humidifier over 25 times throughout the week and we ended up moving to a bedroom upstairs to avoid having our luggage and clothes smell at the end of the week.

Overall it was a fantastic week, we will absolutely consider re-booking again!! Thanks for the memories Bella Vista!

Hi Katie - I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay! I'm sorry to hear you felt the basement was musty. I will follow up with the owners and cleaners to have this investigated. The week you stayed was one of the hottest most humid weeks on record. I hope you were able to swim in the lake to stay cool! We would absolutely welcome you back again!
