Truly a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the wonderful accomodations; the well appointed kitchen, the comfortable beds, the tasteful and playful décor, the delightful gardens and spacious grounds with a marvellous view of the Bay in the distance. I am always a little unsure about booking a stay with only a webpage and a couple of reviews to go on, but this was more lovely than expected. Also, there is so much to see and do in PE County that our short stay was much too brief! Hope to be back again. Thanks Sue!

Absolutely beautiful property

  • 3 of 5

The property was beautiful and very well maintained! The furniture, rooms and decor were incredible. We absolutely loved the house and there was lots of room for the four of us. The kitchen has everything you need. The sunsets from the porch were stunning - lots of great photos to be taken! There is a view of the river from the property but the house is not within walking distance to the water - it was lovely to see the river though. The issue we had was that the week we booked there was a heat wave and this property has no air conditioning. There are fans but when the temperature hit upwards of 43 degrees in the house it was just too much. As a result of the heat, the grass and lawn were very hard and dry and we could not have a fire in the fire pit because there was a fire ban. It was my fault for not noticing when we booked that there was no air conditioning. We ended up cutting our vacation short and leaving early because the heat was inescapable. The last few nights there no one was able to sleep at all and we all felt sick from being so long in such high temperatures. Of course this is not the fault of the hosts - just our bad luck. I will definitely make sure that we book a place with air conditioning next time! Sue is a wonderful host and was very helpful over email prior to our arrival. Again - we loved the house. If we book again it will be in the fall when we can enjoy it in cooler weather! The one small thing that was a bit confusing for us was that we had to take our garbage with us as there is no garbage pick up. It would be helpful to post a list of places that we could take it. I would recommend this place without hesitation but if you book in the summer during a hot spell just note that you will cook!

Owner's Response: Mother Nature was harsh this past summer with continuous heatwaves. The retreat is normally a comfortable temperature in the summer since it is close to Wellers Bay. We have since installed heavy blinds in the bedrooms to keep the heat out. We are pleased you found the retreat beautiful and well equipped. Hope you will be back!

We rented this cottage as a girls get away during this past labour day long weekend. We had heard about nightmares of people renting cottages and arriving to find that the cottage either did not exist or was nothing like what they thought they were paying for.

Fortunately, for us we had the opposite outcome!

The cottage was even more incredible than we could have expected. Sue is a truly gifted decorator. Every inch of the cottage had something special to look at, from vintage mirrors & stone shower in the down stairs bathroom, to a little doggy hide out under the main stair case and a blue tooth Harmen/Karmon speaker for playing music from your cell phone or Ipod. The many little added touches kept us smiling with each discovery.

Everything was spotless, fully stocked (beyond expectations) and extremely comfortable. There was tons of fire wood available, the grounds are large and beautifully landscaped. What more could you ask for.

And what a view!

Spending our mornings and evenings sipping coffee or wine while sitting on the large covered from porch was really the highlight of our vacation.

Sue also welcomes dogs (she even left a welcome gift of all natural treats for our dog) which was a must for us as my sister has a large elderly dog who could not be left at boarding a facility. He loved slowly investigating the grounds and laying on the porch with us. Making this trip even more special and memorable.

We will certainly be going back many more times & HIGHLY recommend this wonderful cottage to anyone.

Thank you again Sue!

Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I and our doggies stayed at Seasonal Thyme Retreat during the July 1st long weekend. We were most impressed by the beautifully decorated, quaint and charming country get-away as well as the property it was on. It had a magnificent view of the bay and the sunsets were amazing. We even saw a deer run across the front lawn early one evening when we were sitting on the verandah! We cooked our own meals in the fully equipped kitchen and used the barbecue, enjoyed the comfort of our beautiful and spacious bedrooms, listened to the lovely CDs which were available to us and watched a couple of movies in the TV room. We would definitely stay at Seasonal Thyme Retreat again and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Seasonal Thyme is wonderful! We loved staying there.

  • 5 of 5

The house and gardens are beautiful, and we loved the wonderful view from the veranda.

The description was accurate, but in reality the house is even lovelier than it appears on the website.

It was clean and very well maintained. There are so many lovely touches in the house. It is beautifully appointed, with great care and humor.

Sue was very hospitable. She answered all our questions, and came by when we first arrived to help us get oriented.

We felt very much at home there.

There are lots of wonderful towns to visit in the area. There are also beaches and parks close - by.

If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay, we recommend Seasonal Thyme.

Most incredible, peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Sue's immaculate attention to detail when it comes to accommodations made this the perfect retreat for our family - the place was beautiful, perfectly furnished with vintage country touches and all modern amenities (see the bathrooms!) and conveniently located. The sunsets and sunrises were breathtaking, with views of the water off in the distance and lovely countryside all around. The night-time illumination of the property made the generous acreage even more stunning and enjoyable.

We loved that Sue welcomed us with our pets, who truly enjoyed running up and down the grassy fields. Taking in all the fresh air, and sitting by the fire either indoors or out, made for amazing sleep each night in perfectly appointed bedrooms - I just can't say enough about the comforts provided! Thank you Sue - we will surely be back again!
