The Yak - Beautiful new cottage with a gorgeous sunset view! by Vivian K 09/06/2019
The Yak - Beautiful new cottage with a gorgeous sunset view! The master bedroom and ensuite was very private considering the cottage was a bungalow. The waterfront was easily accessible with multiple areas to sit and face the water. The bunkie with washroom was also large, clean and nice for extended family. Overall I would highly recommend this cottage!

The cottage and location was so lovely. It was super clean and looked like the pictures that we saw...well worth it!
Wow Service! by Jeff 07/21/2018
Jayne's Cottages is fantastic, and the service reinforces why it is a much better choice than Airbnb or VRBO.
