Guest Reviews

Well Equipped by Karen 08/31/2016
Marianne and I really enjoyed the natural setting of Bala Boathouse and its proximity to the town shops and the beautiful waters of Bala Bay. The WiFi and TV worked very well and the cottage was adequately supplied.
Great Spot by Cory 07/31/2015
Jayne was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Our stay at Bala Boathouse fulfilled our needs exactly. I will rent again.
