Please Note:


We thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Edge! The place is in a league of its own, head and shoulders above any other rental cottage we’ve ever stayed at. It is well equipped, well maintained and your attention to detail is evident throughout the lovely place. We are looking forward to our next stay at The Edge!

Love the house! Owning it for a week is awesome!!! Comforts of home. Snowmobile trails are awesome! Fishing was great! We loved it!

Great cottage! Feels like a 5-star hotel rather than a cottage! Very convenient location. Stores very close if you run out of things.

The Christmas touches were really appreciated. It created the perfect atmosphere for the kids and everyone to enjoy a wonderful holiday.

Thank you for a great place to stay. We wish we could come back during the summer.

Thanks a million! Feeling like you own it --- amazing!

We loved The Edge. Lots of room for everyone. The younger girls loved the Loft. The boys loved the Games Room. The moms loved the view from the livingroom/kitchen and the fact that everyone was happy. The teenagers amongst us loved that we were the only people around. Gorgeous pictures on the walls.
