Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you so much for a great 3 days. What a beautiful place you have. I did not want to leave and I will want to rent it again. I was just blown away. There wasn't one thing I was disappointed about. I've stayed in many cottages and your lake house is on a whole different level, Everything was amazing! Thanks again for renting it to me. Take care

Perfect Group or Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was perfect, it was more than I expected. There was more than enough towels, facecloths, pillows, blankets, dishes, and so on. It's very open, with lots of space. We will definitely be renting again in the future. Thanks for such a great stay!

cozy,a lot of space, friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

The place is by the lake, and it is a community there. You can see a lot of house near by. It's took me a while to figure out the entries, the houses keeper helped us. Over all, this is a good place for your short period get away.

Wonderful family retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Our family's third Thanksgiving retreat at MLG was amazing. The fall colors were at their peak. Sunrises on the lake off the deck and moonlit stargazing on the wharf. A true getaway in comfort!

Decent but not what we expected from reading reviews here

  • 2 of 5

The location, by the water was perfect for us. We enjoyed the lake a lot. After reading the reviews we were very excited to stay at this cottage. While there are no major complaints, it was not as nice as we were expecting. We've rented cottages in Nova Scotia before that were much more maintained and yet cost significantly less.

Some things we were not impressed by:

Swing set broke during use - it was apparent that it was not the first time it broke yet was not repaired properly or replaced.

Dirty knives in kitchen

Dirty high chair

Garbage not emptied

Dirty kettle - calcium build up?

Lots of Cigarette butts on deck

Broken towel rack in bathroom

Cheerios on floor

No phone card on fridge as indicated

Musty - humidifier off and full

Broken glass table on deck

Broken patio chairs

Deck lights burnt out

The Lawn was cut at 9:30am and almost woke my baby - maintenance shouldn't be happening when guests are paying for the property

The photos shown on this website are not recent.

Excessive personal items - the house is very cluttered.

The fridge & freezer had food in them. Leaving no room for the food we brought for the week.

I was told there was a Kurig Coffee machine - there is not. There is a Tassimo. We had brought Kurig pods so this was disappointing.

We would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry our home didn't live up to your expectations. We truly try to offer a great accommodation. I would have been happy to try to revolve any issues, had you contacted me at any point during your stay. Alot of these issues I was not a wear of. The coffee pods is my mistake. The updated photos are on Facebook and as there are improvements ie new kitchen I didn't feel I needed to urgently update the website. I'm unaware of the "personal items" you are talking about however it is our personal vacation home. The maintenance gets done at various times as we are fully booked almost everyday from late May till the end of November. There is no phone card as the phone is now free for Canada and the US. I will update my info on the book, but if you had of mentioned I would have easily informed you. Again I am sorry we didn't meet your expectations. Thank you for the information so we can improve for next time.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at the lake. The place was very clean and comfortable for our group. Swimming was excellent as the lake is clean and pretty quiet. The fire pit area was perfect and we enjoyed a couple nights there. The deck is a great size with a nice large table and plenty of chairs. The BBQ could be replaced but with a little bit of a tune up it worked great. Wish there was a second full sized fridge or an apartment sized freezer as food storage for a week was a bit tough at the start. We also play a lot of games so the large dinner table was great just wish it had the full 8 chairs to go with it. Overall I believe we will be back next year when we an all decide on a date.
