A Magical Dream Come True!
Having seen "Tree House Masters" on TV (we are from Alaska) I had always dreamed of staying in a tree house. For my birthday, my husband surprised me with a stay at The Cottage Lake Tree House B & B - The Nest- was everything and more that I had hoped for. From the moment I stepped out of the car and met John and Beth - our hosts- to the moment I saw the tree house, it was like a dream come true. John and Beth seemed like old friends from the start. They are impeccable hosts while being laid back and welcoming. The grounds are beautifully manicured (color and whimsy and fragrance abounds) and the house and tree house sit right on the lake and affords gorgeous views. The tree house itself is a wonderful, charming and peaceful space. How anyone could think otherwise is beyond me - and I am very particular about my surroundings. Our hosts not only prepared a beautiful place for us, but also went above and beyond for me......there was champagne and cake waiting in the tree house upon our arrival! Everything was exceptionally clean and tidy - from the tree house to the main house/bath facilities to the hot tub and the surrounding grounds. John and Beth have paid attention to every detail and show pride in their home and rental.-even the towels and toiletries and linens are top notch. The auto lit walkways and comfortable seating and gazebo and fire pit are just lovely. They have created a beautiful environment in their home for others to enjoy. We felt very lucky to have been able to experience it. The next morning we indulged ourselves in a swim in the lake and then a hot tub. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Our hosts served us a lovely continental breakfast-unhurried and served on the back deck and urged us to enjoy and linger. We felt more like we were visiting friends than staying in a rental. If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful and charming place to get away, then this is it. Also, and as a bonus, they have a super duper four legged companion - Harley! He was a delight and even hung out with us in the tree house (we invited him in). We just cannot say enough good things about the accommodations or about our hosts, John and Beth. We hope that you enjoy your stay in the tree house as much as we did as it is truly a magical place!
