The cottage is in a great location that is very private, surrounded by a beautiful forest and close to nearby lakes, beaches and trails. While the kitchen had ample dishware and utensils, it was not clean when we arrived (e.g., garbage still in the bin, wine glasses covered with smudges and fingerprints, countertop with crumbs, etc). The bathroom had a very strong mildew odour that may be due to mould; there was no window or vent to clear the air so those with allergies should be careful. Lastly, there was a power outage while we were there (not the host's fault) that conveniently happened in the middle of the day and was repaired within a few hours. However no electricity meant no running water and we were lucky it didn't happen in the middle of cooking dinner. The loft layout was cozy with ceiling fan, space heaters and lots of bedding. The mattresses were comfortable however they were double-sized not queen/king.

We had a lovely time. Pre season spring, before bugs and tourists! Convenient location, smart passive solar eco design. Very efficient space. Terrific for two people, not sure about more than that unless it’s a family.
Appreciated the amenities like bathroom toiletries and linens.

My friends and I had the absolute best time at this beautiful cottage! It fit all 5 of us very comfortably. The kitchen is the perfect size and stocked with everything you may need. They have games and so many cool books to look at. We LOVED all the windows and the skylight in the loft space. You could see the stars and the sunrise all while sitting in bed! Also, the heated toilet seat is something I never knew I needed until this cottage. We spent a lot of time by the fire pit outside and checked out some hiking paths around the area. I would absolutely come back and highly suggest this cottage to anyone looking!

Very nice cottage--had everything we needed! Power was out in the area when we arrived (due to big storm night prior); Beth was very responsive-- keeping us up to date, with any developments, and status. Very restful stay. Again, owner was accessible, and very responsive. Truly, felt like "our cabin" during the time we were here. Yes, we would return!

Thank you so much, Marc! We appreciate you and your review. So sorry about Mother Nature knocking the electricity out in the area - glad it wasn’t too long. Thanks again!

We had an amazing time at this cottage and would love to return in the future. The cottage was beautiful and exactly as described in the advertisement. The hiking and lake life was fantastic. We will definitely return in the future. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with our family.

We were so happy with our stay at Kimpel Cottage! The cabin itself is beautiful with a whole wall of windows for natural light. There’s a fire pit and firewood, and hammocks. The surrounding forest is beautiful and quiet, with good privacy. Tons of hiking and kayaking opportunities in the area as well! I highly recommend the Ojibwe Museum and Cultural Center in Lac de Flambeau! The host Beth is very responsive and helpful! Highly recommend this stay!

So many rivers and lakes in the area to kayak!Beth has board games you can borrow in the cabin!Beautiful red pine and jack pine forests.
