Warm, cute and comfy!
we had a magical time! This cottage is clean and cozy. All the tools you need to enjoy a stay away from home.
Everything is steps away. The town is busy and cheerful with loads of shops to explore!
The owner is wonderfully warm, and really easy to talk to.
I will surly be renting this cottage again!
Rustic meets new. Perfect location to town but still private.
Owners were very nice and so attentive when I had a question. Thank you!!
Close to beach, close to town but still quiet with room for 5-6
We had a very nice trip to Sauble Beach. The owner was very easy to work with, helpful in answering questions, and refunded our deposit quickly. The cottage has been partially remodeled and suited our needs as we explored the Bruce Peninsula. The kitchen is maybe the best well-stocked kitchen in our 7 VRBO rentals across the US & Canada, the wifi had good speed, and the wagon to haul stuff to the beach was most appreciated. The only issue with the cottage itself was the screen missing in the back door so we couldn't leave it open at night due to bugs coming in. This prevents getting a cross breeze, which could be an issue in hotter months since this home doesn't have AC. The walk to the beach is simple and easy for just nearly anyone. However, the trail from the home to the beach does come out onto the First Nations portion of the beach. This isn't bad per se, but we were stopped twice during our stay by a patrol vehicle stating we needed to pay a walk-on fee. Once we explained where we were renting a home they let us come on without paying, but did suggest the homeowner get a pass for guests. Also, this is a drive-on beach and you'll need to get on the other side of the berm to be out of the way of traffic. The home is close to town but far enough that it's not noisy and we walked pretty much everywhere we went. The cottage shares a lot with another cottage and there isn't much privacy between the two, which could be good or bad depending upon who your neighbors are, but we got lucky with a nice family. Our children played together some. We couldn't find the Netflix password posted anywhere, but we didn't try to turn on the TV either as we were busy doing other things. Parking was a bit tight for us (full size pickup and an SUV crossover) without hanging out in the street a little, but mostly you should have room for 2 cars. Overall, we would recommend a stay here.
Thank you so much. For your time in giving us your review.
We really appreciate the kind words and would also like to reply to some of your concerns.
Patio screen door; The week before you rented Sandy Trail Lodge the renters dog ran through the patio screen door damaging the wheels as well as framing. The permanent screen was replaced that next Saturday. We apolgize for that inconvenience.
Beach; There are two beach paths from the cottage -One takes you to the native land section which is quieter and less busy - 50 steps away. The other is 200 feet away and right at the main Sauble entrance sign. If you prefer the Native side, it's rare you are stopped, no one has ever had to pay (to our knowledge).
The two cottages on same property; While we did add some privacy panels and shrubs between the two cottages we often have extended families renting both cottages at the same time and allowing them to still interact with each other. The large property offers both cottages plenty of private space. We do agree it would be nice to have more privacy, and are planning to plant more cedar trees. Thank you for that input.
Parking; While 2 large vehicles can park at each of the cottages and leave a lot of space between allowing you to walk through with luggage etc, there is also street parking (if required) directly in front of our property. We have never been ticketed.
We did completely renovate the two cottages and purposely left some of the old charm to make it feel like you're at a lodge on vacation. We did upgrades to offer some of the conveniences of home such as Tasimos, unlimited WIFI, memory foam mattresses and a nice TV. We do also provide our own Netflix account for your use and send you the account info with password in the email we send prior to your arrival, along with the weekly keyless entry code, packing list, etc. Because the keyless entry code and Netflix code is changed weekly, we can't post in the cottage.
Thank you so much for staying at our place and for your priceless feedback!
Hope to have you there again soon!
