We stayed August 2-9, 2019. Overall, the cottage was clean and had large common spaces for our 3 families. We enjoyed the pool table and large wraparound deck. The owner was responsive by text. It's a nice cottage, but I'm not sure I would characterize it as luxury or executive.

Unfortunately, there were a few things that marred our experience:

1. There are security cameras around the property, which were not disclosed at the time of rental. The owner advised us that the cameras were for "insurance" purposes. We found it hard to relax, knowing we were being recorded.

2. We had an incident with a neighbour who approached our group and angrily told us that we were not allowed to light a fire in the designated fire pit on the rental property. The incident took place while our children were roasting marshmallows over a small, contained fire. The owner told us that there was nothing she could do about it. The encounter scared our children, so we ended up not lighting any more outdoor fires for the rest of the trip.

3. The owner charged us for not bringing all the linens down to the laundry room at the end of our trip. Initially, the owner wanted to charge us $150, but reduced it to $75 after we showed her pictures that we had completely cleaned the cottage from top to bottom before leaving. After paying $4500 for the week, we felt the additional $75 charge was a bit shortsighted on the part of the owner.

We would not stay here again.

Thank you Teresa, for your review and feedback.
We're happy to hear that you found the property and amenities to be clean and spacious enough for your group of 12 to enjoy during your stay.

We're sorry to hear that there were challenges with a neighbour, that affected your bonfire adventures. Other guests have not mentioned issues like this in the past, and unfortunately cannot explain or control others' behaviours. Regarding the outdoor security cameras, although our security protocols are outlined clearly in our Welcome Book, we will point out that these are external cameras only, in place for the security of the property only.

Nobody likes additional fees, and we don't like to charge them. Which is why we outline clearly in our Agreement, the Welcome Package, and the Checkout checklist, the responsibilities of the renters prior to checkout. Although we're happy to provide all the amenities that we do, due to the size of the property, and our cleaning team having a short window between (same day) checkouts and check-ins, ensuring the property is to the high standard we expect for our next incoming guests, we must have these Housekeeping rules place.

We thank you again for your review and feedback, and would welcome the opportunity to have your and your group back again in the future.

Lorie was a pleasure to work with. She was highly responsive from the very beginning. The cottage is extremely spacious and clean; it also had all the essentials required to make our stay a fun one. We were four separate families and the kids had lots of space to run around and play. I would definitely come back to their cottage in the future

Thank you Neve, for the wonderful review and kind words, we greatly appreciate it. We're glad to hear you all had fun, including the younger ones in your group, and that you all enjoyed the property and amenities (as much as we do). We look forward to you vacationing with us again in the future.

Lorie & George

A great vacation spot for families and larger groups that has a beautiful, spacious patio and an open backyard that continues on to the lake. The cottage itself is generous in size and has a home-like quality to it. The property offers a lot of activities, both indoors and out, that seldom leaves you wondering what to do next. The host is very organized, reliable, and warm. She was prompt to reply and politely addressed all the questions and concerns we had, inspiring a sense of hospitality throughout our stay.

Thank you Adam, for the great review and kind words, we're very appreciative. We're happy to hear that you and your group enjoyed the property and all the amenities it has to offer (as much as we do). We've tried to make sure there is a little bit of something for everyone. We look forward to you and your group vacationing with us again in the future.

Lorie & George

We booked this cottage for a group of 12 people and when communicating with Lori she was fast with her replies and was very accommodating. The cottage was a beautiful home, very spacious and there was a lot to do inside the home and outside. Staying at this cottage was like staying at a hotel, it was clean and majority of what is needed was provided minus food, toiletries and other extra necessities. My group and I would definitely recommend staying here and we would definitely book again!

This place will take your breath away. This massive property gives ample space for all activities imaginable. Whether it rains or shines during your stay, there are so many things to do in and around the place. Lorie was phenomenal in her guidance and providing answers to all the questions that we had. In addition, meeting her in person to get a rundown of the place shows the care and dedication to ensuring a comfortable and relaxed stay. Will definitely consider coming back here!
