First Cottage Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our very first cottage experience, and it was AMAZING! I can't emphasize how much fun this experience was. Unfortunately we were only able to book for 3 days, if we could've stayed longer, we definitely would. We were a large party of 14 (ages 1-85), and I was surprised that the home was able to accommodate all of us without crowding. We had 7 children going, and there was no shortage of fun for them. The kids spent all day in boats, on the play place, or playing ping pong/badminton. Boating in the water, we saw many creatures, and even took some home. Sadly we couldn't catch any big fishes, but we got buckets of fresh water mussels, crayfishes, minnows, and even a turtle! You know a place is fun when kids are willing to wake up at 6 am to go play outside. This was a great adventure/break from the city, and it got everyone wanting to come again. The owners were awesome, and there when we needed them. The only downside was that there are leaches in the water, but that didn't stop us from going in. The property/house is beautiful, and it definitely made our first cottage experience one to remember. Definitely recommend people to stay here, whether you're a couple or a family this place has it all.

Great vacation with family

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent time with family coming and going throughout the week to celebrate my retirement and brother in laws birthday. Owner accommodated our group all we requested. There was something for everyone and couldn't be more pleased with how everything went. Dishwasher and washed and dryer were appreciated with kids there for the week. Sauna was also a treat. Recommend for anyone looking for a peaceful escape.

A great place for a weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at this awesome cottage with a family. We have 2 small kids so we were looking for a nice place where we would be able to get away from the city life and spend a relaxing weekend while they could have fun. And this place was exactly what we were looking for. There was a playground for kids, ping pong table and lots of toys in the house that kept our kids busy and us happy. Apart from that there is a large lake in the property. We used convenient ladder to get to the lake from the deck and kids were excited as they could also jump from this deck to the lake.The next day we went to visit the Eugenia falls and Blue Mountain. This property has a great location as it took us only about 15 mins to get to the Falls and 20 mins to Blue Mountain. Would definitely recommend it for a family stay.

A very good holiday experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good time. Lovely ground floor house, with plenty of room. Comfortable bed. Beautiful lake, with sauna, fishing, natural beauty, etc. The owner, who lives next door, was appropriately attentive and very helpful, but also gave us space. Close enough to Blue Mountain, and just 120 km from Toronto.

A great place for a party/getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for a birthday party for a group of 15. We were impressed by the size of the property. There is a large outdoor space that we used for frisbee and other games. The property also has a beautiful large lake with little islands. We used pontoon and canoes to get to these islands. We also took a scenic path which goes around the lake. There is a beautiful view on the lake from the waterfront deck which is attached to the house. Owners Natalia and Oleg were very friendly and helpful. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this place for a large company looking for a place to celebrate an event or just as a getaway.

Not for large groups

  • 1 of 5

The weekend before the Christmas holidays, a group of 14 of us decided to rent a cottage for the weekend. Although it was slightly difficult to find a cottage that would accommodate all 14 of us, I landed this beautiful and cozy looking get away last minute and contacted the home owners as soon as I got the chance. Once we arrived, we were all toured the property and amazed by the amount of space for activities and already we had our minds set to book this place for the summer. However, one of the set backs we all felt should have been mentioned before hand was that the contract stated curfew to be either 10 or 11pm, assuming it was because the home owner's home with family was directly connected to the cottage, which we also did realize prior to booking. This being our Xmas get away with friends, we were turned off by this curfew. Also, by the second day, although this cottage sleeps 14 people, the septic system did not at all accommodate our natural needs. We were told not to flush any toilet paper down the toilet, which of course none of us did, but both toilets ended up clogging due to natural output of 14 people. The home owners' showed me their septic system leaking, as their septic system alarm went off, and the water was then turned off for an hour or so. Thank goodness one of the washrooms began working, but we noticed things started backing up in the other toilet and shower, it may have been an existing problem. Prior to check-out we all gathered our garbage, drove to the nearest gas station, however, they wouldn't accept it. We were then told by the owners to either pay $15/bag or throw it out at a garbage dump, about half an hour away, which took us way too long to check-out. Our group ended up losing our entire deposit as the emergency services was needed to help fix the septic system. Overall, was a fun time with friends, sleeps the max. # of people it states on the posting, but does not meet the needs for a large group. Also, the overview/description of cottage should have been more precise with rules and match the contract.

Owner's Response: First a copy of the email which we received from Vanessa Estrada on Dec 23,2015 Hi Oleg and Natalia, I want to thank you again for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage this passed week. Also, I would like to apologize for the damage that was made to the septic system, and would like to follow up if the emergency service visited to help fix it. Please get back to me at your greatest convenience. Thank you, Vanessa Dear Vanessa, Firstly,when you arrived you were all toured the property and specificaly were told about septic system. You wrote :"we were told not to flush any toilet paper down the toilet".Moreover it was written in the contract which you have signed. Unfortunately you didnt follow the rules and flushed into the toilets not only toilet paper, but also tampons. As a result both toilets and septic system was clogged. We spent more than an hour at night trying to fix the problem and as you mentioned you were able to use one of the washrooms after this.The next day we had to call emergency services to clean the pipes and second washroom. As a result we had to use security deposit to clean the septic system.Secondly, its normal to lower the music after 11 pm. Even though you did not lower the music after 11 pm, nobody asked you about it. We hope that if you would decide to rent any other cottage in the future you would be more carefull and would not flush toilet paper and tampons again. Regards, Oleg and Natalia
