“Your cabin was fantastic. We had a great time. We will for sure be back in the future sometime. We met Blair from The Narrows and he treated us like gold. He is a great guy and has very good things going there. It was great, fishing was good, hot tub was great, and the customer service was outstanding. Once again, thank you very much.”

"It was our third visit and winter holiday gathering at the "Lake Manitoba Cottage". Everything was handled very professional and clear from the initiation of our booking up to the final notes after check out. We stayed two times at cottage #1 and one time at cottage #7 (current stay) and enjoyed the lovely environment, clean and well maintained cottages and fantastic preparation for the guests. The onsite resident manager (Marc) was lovely and very welcoming and did his best to make sure we had a peaceful and relaxing holiday over there. He was always available. The onsite manager was very flexible and even provided us extra time for check out and also accommodated us in a larger cottage when we asked him. We will certainly come back for another relaxing holiday (this time will be summer holiday) and will recommend these lovely cottages to our friends."
