This was our second time staying here. It's such a beautiful place and in such a perfect spot.
Great water views nice cottage well designed
Fred was very good to work with and very responsive to inquiries. The cottage is very nicely situated close to the water with amazing views. The cottage is well equipped with comfortable beds and higher end appliances. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this cottage to others.
Beautiful in the fall ! Love this place!
We really appreciated staying in this well equipped, very clean and well located cottage. There is a lot to do in the area.
this cottage is just like the online description, very well appointed, bright , clean, welcoming, the beds are comfortable, a lot of attention to details which contributed to our well being here. We loved the view , and peaceful surroundings.
The owner was quick to respond to a minor request.
Glad you enjoyed your stay Noella, and thank you for taking the time and giving us a great review.
Not Impressed at all - Poor host
We use HomeAway frequently for both local and international holidays and we have always had great stays in the places offered on this site. This , without question was the most disappointing experience we have had to date (and I don't think it will be beaten).
As Canadians living in the UK, we have been to a variety of cottages on the lakes of Ontario. After travelling across the pond for a relaxing break at a place that from the pictures looked idyllic, we found ourselves in a completely underwhelming 'cottage'.
Upon arrival the first thing you see is a mess of a grounds with a dilapidated (massive) outbuilding spoiling whatever nice feel you get from the lake. There was garbage, metal and wooden scraps dumped next to this building which is only meters from the actual cottage.
The cottage itself was fine. Clean, apart from the present left for us in the toilet, the views spoiled by dirty windows and it was on the small side for what would have been a family of 4.
The pictures were misleading and only due to the lack of attention the host put in to preparing it for the next tenant. The hose was left in a mess on the ground, the fire pit utensils were dirty and on the floor, the chairs which are plastic and not traditional wood were not positioned, the BBQ had old food surrounding it on the decking, the lounge area outside was overgrown and to top it all off, the dock was partially removed and dumped next to the fire pit. Nothing like a metal structure dumped next to the only place to relax outside to enhance the feeling of relaxing in the wilderness. The access in and out of the water can only be from the dock and the host, only when I called him on the day, explained that he had to remove it due to raised water levels. This would have been nice to know as it would have been impossible for some members of our family to get out of the water and is definitely a child hazard.
We couldn't stay one night let alone the 10 we booked. After speaking with Fred on the day of arrival and after explaining the situation, with little hesitance he offered a refund. We have yet to see this and he has stopped all contact!
It is unacceptable that owners can be protected even though the tenants can be misled by great pictures.
This is not an over exaggeration due to the lack of integrity shown by the host. I feel bad leaving such a review but we have pictures contradicting almost all images on view in the ad.
There are better options close by!
