Description

You’ll immediately fall in love with the rustic feel of this cottage. The wood panelled walls and the natural wood banister add a cosy ambience to the property that will make you want to stay on longer! It's pet-friendly too so you can enjoy your vacation along with your four-legged companion. The corner kitchen has laminate counter tops, a freestanding oven with four cooktops, stainless steel fridge and a microwave. It is open to the dining and lounge area, all with new wood floors and overlooking the lake through a large window. The dining table has a built-in wrap around bench seat and chairs to easily seat 6 people. There’s a 3 seater sofa bed, coffee table and arguably the best seat in the house, a recliner by the window. This area has a small TV and DVD player, plus a great collection of board games, to keep you entertained when the sun goes down and you can no longer enjoy the view. The living area leads out onto the deck, with a BBQ, a table and chairs, the perfect spot overlooking the water on a warm Summer’s evening. This level is also where you’ll find the recently renovated bathroom, with new large shower, vanity and toilet.

Head up the stairs to the loft and you’ll find a double bed next to a single bunk bed, as well as a two drawer chest for any luggage you want to store away. This area has a large window which gives you an elevated view of the lake and lets in ample natural light.

The property also has free access to Boats at the resort on a first come, first serve basis. Any guest can help themselves to the oars, life-jackets and the boats. There is a total of 6 - 14ft row boats and 4 - 16ft canoes.

Things to note about this property:
-There is no cell phone coverage at Idabel Lake, and no free internet.
-No dishwasher.
-No internal laundry.
-The cottage has an old fashioned TV for viewing DVD’s and VCR’s films.

Hey there! I thought I gave you guys a review but I guess it didn’t go through. So for the past couple years, my friends and I have rented your cabins during the winter for the annual weekend getaway and it’s àways been such a blast. So cozy and we love that we get to spend the entire time in the outdoors exploring nature. I absolutely love staying in the cabins they’re clean and warm and just about anything you’d need is stocked. Also love the old school VHS’s that the landlords leave for us to watch. There were two things I wanted to humbly point bring to your attention though. We rented cabin #1 and #5 and all 11 of us had a great time, the only thing is that in cabin #1 your advertisement online said that the cabin sleeps 6 people. This is false, as the hide-a-bed has a collapsed mattress and there were no bedsheets to be found. So our pair of friends assigned to that bed actually did not have anywhere to s’eep Which was extremely disappointing for them :(
Another thing I wanted to point out (albeit, minor) was that your add said there were hot tubs. We also didn’t have any access to any hot tubs. They’re usually under the balcony, right? Anyways, a blast as usual and we will probably see you next year :) but I hope that you can sort out that hide-a-bed in cabin #1 for us please. Thanks so much for the lovely stay xx - jasmine

We stayed here as a large group over May long weekend. The cabin was a prefect get-a-way and the lake is beautiful (although not a lot of fish, much to the guy's disappointment). The Cabin was clean, the bed comfortable and the it stayed pretty cool at night. Todd is super nice and helpful. Definitely looking forward to coming back.
Response from RentChalets
Hi Jacquelyn, We are glad you to hear you had a successful May long weekend with your group of friends, hopefully more success with the fish next time you come! regards Margaret

upon arriving we could not get the door open and had to find caretaker. Showed us how knob had to be jiggled and the door pulled a certain way to allow the control mechanism to unlock door. Looking at the way it is designed showed how poor a job the set up was. Never locked the door again because of the inconvenience. THe bed was an issue for which I twice contacted your office. It was extremely uncomfortable, sagging in the middle and apparently not well supported by the box spring. Judging from the style of it is well past its prime. My first call to the office on Sat and speaking with Carmen was not followed up. I called again on Sunday and was offered a move to another cottage. Because we were staying for several days we had a lot of snow and kitchen gear. While the bed seemed more agreeable it was still of the same vintage as our original cabin. We elected to remain at Serenity rather than move all our belongings. We put the mattress on the floor which gave it considerably more support which allowed us to at least sleep the last 2 nights.
There was a power outage while we were there for which of course no one has control over. But what I would suggest in your confirmation is to tell guests to bring emergency lighting. We had our head lamps but there was nothing in the cabin- flashlight, candles etc. I am not sure what one does if it is extremely cold- we were fortunate the weather was reasonable. Do you all muster by the outdoor fire pit and hope for the best? Additionally it would be appropriate for the caretaker to contact the guests and explain the situation and to make sure they are ok and have the supplies they need. We had been away skiing all day and when we got back didn't know if the outage was individual to our cabin or a general one. Overall it was clean, although the fan blades were horrible, raining dust when we turned it on. Bathroom was nice surprise we appreciated after seeing the outdated one in the replacement cabin.

Nice place, crazy price (3x all other overnights with no coffee / tea), door code failed to work (very frustrating when tired from 5 hours riding).
