-There is a keypad lock you can use to self-check in when you arrive - We have a portable Bluetooth speaker you can take down the the yard to use - We offer a ground coffee maker - We offer a propane BBQ - Also provide a smoker for your smoking meat needs. - A selection of lawn games - Board games (Selection of board games, puzzles and some books). - There will be a bundle of firewood leaning up against the shed you can use as much of as you want. I can also give you the number of someone you can buy more wood from and pick up or have delivered. - There's also a bylaw so no fires are allowed before 7pm - no idea why but I also don't want you to get fined. - There's a full kitchen and dishwasher (please do your own dishes before you leave) and all the main cooking and bbq utensils you'd need. - The water off the dock is only about chest height, so don't dive, but a shallow cannonball will work. The water gets deep about 20 ft further out. - The cottage is also on a septic tank, so please only put toilet paper in it and while the water is unlimited, it's also not a good idea to have more than like 4-5 quick showers in a short time frame. - The water is from the well and goes through a UV filtration system so it's safe to drink. - 3-night minimum stays on long weekends and during summer
