Beautiful and relaxing cottage
Just returned from my 2 week stay at the Ivy Cottage. It was lovely and very easy. Great location, close to beach. House has everything you would need.
Owners were available and quickly resolved any issues that came up. The house is immaculate and beautiful. Cannot wait to return. Highly recommend this property
A relaxing and perfect week at The Ivy
Jodi, our host, described the property perfectly. You look around and you see that she and her husband have put a lot of love into their cottage. They have made it so cozy and comfortable. She was very easy to communicate with and accommodating as well when I asked for a little earlier check in. I loved the location; steps away, from the steps, to the loveliest beach. Everything else~ a run, a walk, a bike or a car ride away. We truly loved our stay at The Ivy!
Booked this for a sister and mother getaway. I ended up unable to attend due to illness but my four sisters and mom said the cottage was beautiful and decorated very well. Their only complaints were that there weren't enough washcloths and towels, no real view of the lake, too many steps to the beach and wished for better drapes for the windows for privacy. Otherwise they felt it was a nice place for a getaway.
Fantastic getaway at The Ivy
We had a great time at The Ivy What a beautiful home and location. We were walking distance to a nice quiet, secluded beach. We could walk to the corner restaurant for coffee and then the beach for the rest of the day. We could jump in the car and head to many local restaurants for dinner. Four Winds casino is also ten minutes away. We had the best of both worlds. The Ivy's decor, front porch and deck were beautiful. The Ivy had all the amenities and we used them everyday.
Adorable shabby chic cottage close to beach
We loved our stay at The Ivy. The house was a good size for 5 of us -- 2 kids and 3 adults -- although it would be tight for more than 4 adults. It's very close to the beach which wasn't as crowded as the Townline Rd beach. The kitchen & baths are new and beautiful. Lots of thought was put into decor from a reclaimed wood island with a pink painted antique bottle opener to the mason jar light fixture and chandeliers in just about every room -- maybe not the best for a guys weekend, but great for us. They had lots of games and beach toys. Everything worked well. The only reason we didn't give them 5 stars were that there were a few very minor maintenance issues; however the owner responded right away and would have sent someone to make repairs if we asked. We'll keep this on the top of our list for next year.
Best first family vacation!
We decided to take our first family vacation with our 4 month old and so glad we did! This was the perfect cottage right across the street front the beach, close to restaurants and coffee shops. Jodi is super easy to work with and responds quickly. The house has towels, beach chairs, coffee (perfect to sit on the patio with) and laundry detergent. Nice to come home without dirty clothes! We are thinking about coming out again this summer whenever it is available. Great stay!
