Sept 2016 – The wife and I needed time away to decompress and having been here previously (7 years ago) this place was perfect. Emerald was just far enough away (from the kids) that the drive was enjoyable. Upon arrival the cottage hadn’t changed much, but it was for the better. The features for us was the fireplace, spa bath and isolation. Everything at the cottage was great and it just allowed us to unwind and enjoy the surroundings and each other.
