We definitely felt welcome! The owner greeted us once we got there. Exceptional lady! I would say this was the best cottage experience I've had up north. As for the site, eventhough the cottage is 30 years old, it was well maintained.
Our extended family of 18 rented this cottage for 12 days in August and we were all disappointed to say the least. The cottage was misrepresented as a 5 bedroom sleeping 20 to 24 which is not the case. Upon arrival we discovered one bedroom in the basement is actually windowless. We pointed out this misrepresentation to the property manager and the VRBO website has since been updated. This cottage is actually a 3 bedroom plus a loft. In addition to this misrepresentation the condition of the cottage was very poor for several reasons. The railing on the upper boat deck was not secure enough to lean against which posed a serious safety issue. Shirley’s standard of cleanliness is well below other VRBO properties we have rented. The grounds were littered with cigarette butts, geese and dog droppings. We found a dirty plate from previous guests in one bedroom; mouse droppings in the pantry; cobwebs in the cupboards above the fridge, the carpets completely soiled, window screens missing in a bedroom and a bathroom, and the BBQ/outdoor grill was beyond filthy. The furniture in the main living area is in terrible shape and several of the beds have very uncomfortable mattresses where you feel the springs. There was a wasp infestation in one of the bedrooms that was not dealt with properly and two family members were stung in the night while sleeping. Shirley offered to compensate us $100 and a bottle of wine for the inconveniences which we have yet to see. Potential renters should first view this property in person before booking. The only positive this property has to offer is the location.
We had a group of 20 young professionals getting together as a little reunion. The property is right on the lake and is beautiful. We didn't realize the owners were on the same property, but this did not pose a problem whatsoever. Owners were friendly and helpful and very accommodating. The inside is a little worn, but it's exactly what we needed. Main areas had tons of space and the high ceilings prevented it from ever feeling crowded. The cottage comes with paddle boats that you can take right into town. The double level deck on the water was amazing, so you always have access to sun but can also find shade right by the water. All in all this was the perfect place for us.
We have been renting cottages for about 6 years now for a company saes contest. We have not been successful the past 5 years until now. This property is very clean and well-maintained. I would 100% reccomend this property to anyone. The #1 thing for our group was the water right off the dock. It was very clean and the dock is also well-maintained. We rate our stay a 10/10. Thanks guys we will be back next year!
20 ladies stayed at this cottage for the August long weekend celebrating a bachelorette! We had an incredible time and the cottage was perfect! We spent the majority of the weekend on the upper level of the dock which was so spacious and had a ton of chairs and room for laying out in the sun. The water is deep enough that you can dive right off the dock too. Everyone slept super comfortably and we will definitely be staying here again! One of the nights we were invited to band practice (the cottage owner lives next door and she's awesome - so if you get invited to one of these nights, consider yourself lucky)! Kitchen was spacious, lots of room for sitting and came with pots, pans, bowls, cutlery etc!
THANK YOU for exceeding our expectations! :)
Michelle & the girls.
This is our second year in a row of renting this cottage for the weekend and it is absolutely perfect. We came with very large groups both times and it is very comfortable for everybody sleeping wise. The 2 story dock is the main attraction for the whole weekend, having everybody up there with plenty of space enjoying the beautiful Muskoka sun! Also, it being right on the water so you can just jump in when you get to hot is absolutely perfect. Both years we have used the paddle boats and kayaks supplied to get across the lake to the park to play beach volleyball. Just another great thing about this cottage's location. There is also a large grass space at the cottage for plenty of other games, tons of seating for everybody to sit, and when it comes to making meals for a large group it is a breeze here because there are 2 well functioning BBQ's, stoves, microwave, toaster, whatever you need. During the night there is a large firepit and so many seats for everybody to sit, and even if your group wants to stay inside, everyone can fit easily! This place is perfect, we will definitely be yearly guests and I would definitely recommend this cottage to anybody going with 19+ people!!
