About the property

Quiet and Private cottage with permanent neighbours. Very cozy & definitely

We love it and we know you will love it too. A cozy, modern getaway with a beautiful surrounding and all the luxuries of home. New furniture, 3 full new bathrooms, 4 bedrooms (2 upstairs and 2 on the walkout floor), Heating & Air conditioning and outdoor furniture available. Cottage is located across the street from Georgian Bay.

We purchased this home as a getaway from the chaos of the city and you can see this when you walk thru the door. We think it's the cosiest place on earth! And it's all of our favourite things: huge & comfortable beds, quartz countertops, modern/rustic furniture, beautiful washrooms and all the things you need from home. You need a potato peeler? We have 2! My wife has a mug fetish and there's enough plates for 12 people. We are foodies and the kitchen is an important place! So any good cook would love it here. It's a peaceful place and we would like to keep it that way!

Bed Sheets & Towels - the beds are not dressed to ensure to our guests that the sheets are clean and have been washed between visits. The towels are folded in the main washroom upstairs. Additional towels can be found in the Master ensuite dresser or the dresser in the Queen Bedroom on the lower level. We ask our guests to please strip the beds of the sheets and leave all used linens in the laundry room downstairs. We can take it from there! For Sanitary reasons please ensure you dress the beds. If additional cleaning services are needed when you leave, incremental charges will apply.

All plates, glasses, cutlery, etc must be washed before leaving - Helpful hint, if you choose to use the dishwasher ensure that plates are slanted so the spinner/spray arm can turn and wash the dishes throughout. Dish soap and dishwasher detergent can be found under the sink. Please use a tablecloth at all times as to not damage the dining table.

Additional cleaning supplies, toilet paper and paper towels can be found in the laundry room.

Garbage & Recycling - pick up occurs every Tuesday morning. Recycling must be left on the curb in blue bins. Bins are on the porch outside of the main door for easy access. Garbage must be secured and left in the red box at the end of the driveway, turn log on the bin to YES so the garbage pick up collects the garbage, otherwise they will not stop!

Please discard of any food before you leave.

Beaches - as stated in our listing, Awenda park is the largest and most convenient beach in the area (4 minute drive). For more information please contact Awenda Provincial Park at 705-549-2231. Deeded access is available to the right of the cottage next to #19A Seneca Crescent - follow the fence at Sunset Trail but as stated the beach is rocky and water shoes are needed. Entering any cottages in the area (even outdoors) is considered trespassing and our neighbors will be quick to advise.

Pool floats are available for you to use.

Noise levels - the street is normally relatively calm so please be considerate of others who live here full-time, there are quite a few. You are on vacation but they may not be. ***Should we receive a noise complaint from our neighbours (AND WE WILL) you will be asked to leave immediately.

Fireworks are permitted. Please be courteous and enjoy your fireworks at a reasonable hour. Fireworks are not permitted after 11:00 pm.

Bonfires are permitted. If needed, the permit can be located in the cabinets by the front door (above the bench). There is some wood on site in case of emergency. We expect guests to bring their own wood.

BBQ - natural gas. Please clean BBQ before you leave.

Master Bath (tub) - water faucet is reverse. PLEASE NOTE that it opens on hot and goes up to cold (opposite of normal).

Patio pillows can all be found in the basement. It is perfectly fine to keep them outside, however if it rains you may want to bring them indoors. Please return to basement before your departure.

Pets - please cover couches if pets are couch potatoes. And clean up after them both inside and outside. Pooper scooper can be located outside by the backyard.

***8 guests is a STRICT RULE. Should we suspect that you have more than 8 guests, incremental charges will apply.

We enjoyed our stay at Gerry's

The only complaint was the locked mechanical room! I don't think this is safe, if anything were to happen we were unable to access. Incidentally a breaker tripped and over an hour and a half went by before we could contact the owner, if we need to shut everything off for any reason this is unsafe.

Otherwise it was lovely
