      We stayed at MacFarlanes for four nights. Lovely, well maintained cottage which can sleep eight people. Really isolated and private with an easily accessible, well-sized bass dam right on the doorstep. My husband managed to catch nice size bass on fly. Even taking one of the available canoes for some exercise or fishing is great. We really would have loved to have brought our kick boats with us because the dam is perfect for this. Just one note: the access road is a dirt road and very rough, so be prepared for unexpected holes and bumps.
