“Some good, some bad.”
Reviewed 19 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We rented this cottage from August 12-19, 2017 for $1800 plus a $75 pet fee. We chose this cottage because of the size as we had five adults and two children in our party. One of the adults was not able to make it so we had a spare room.
Upon arriving we found a clean cottage that was very bright and roomy. It is situated on a huge lot that is accessible from two side roads. There is a large deck with BBQ, picnic table and two chairs and yard which includes a horse shoe pit, fire pit, dog kennel and hammock.
In the cottage is a smaller kitchen with table and six chairs, large living room with big screen television, DVD player and lovely fireplace. There is a three piece bathroom on the main level and one double bedroom. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a three piece bathroom with washer and dryer.
Some of the negatives were the small coffee maker that was missing a piece, a broken can opener, dishes that were not clean, especially the pots and pans and had to be washed before using them. Only one person can work comfortably in the kitchen. The master bedroom actually had no bed, only a boxspring and mattress on the floor. Due to there being owners items in the pantry we had to put a lot of items on the counter, limiting our counter space. The couch and love seats are not comfortable and need to be replaced. They have been overused and have lost all support. The television in the master bedroom turns on but the cable connection is horrible so it is useless.
We called the contact person on Saturday when we noticed the coffee maker was missing a piece and she said we should go ahead and buy a coffee maker and she would reimburse us. However when we went to get one the only place in town that had them was closed so we called her back and she had a friend bring by a coffee maker as she was in Mississauga and could not come. The next day we were making dinner and noticed the can opener was broken so had to improvise to get the cans open. On Monday the contact person brought a new coffee maker and can opener.
We made the mistake of using the washer (there was no warning on it) to discover at least 12 items of clothes were ruined by rust. Do NOT use the washer unless you want your clothes ruined.
Some of the furniture needs to be replaced as well as most of the dishes, an actual bed purchased for the master bedroom and cable connection fixed upstairs.
We contacted the rental agency about the rust stains on our clothes and they said that had never happened before and that we should wash them when we get home to see if the stains come out. If they do not I will be contacting them again to be compensated.
The photos on the rent cottage website are outdated as well. They need to be updated as we rented the cottage assuming it would have the furniture items in the pictures (an actual bed in the master bedroom) and it did not.
You have to take your garbage to the dump at the end of your visit and pay the $9.00 minimum to dispose of it.
In conclusion, the price we paid during peak season for the cottage was a bit overpriced. $1800 would have been a reasonable price had the cottage not had the issues we encountered. And for that price we should no have had to clean the house and remove the garbage.

“Nice cottage and a great location.”
Reviewed 15 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

All in all a nice cottage, roomy and in a great location. Just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and to stores you need or just like to shop in.
Only negatives were small downstairs bedroom and kitchen but everything else was great. Even though dogs are not allowed on the beach she still had fun and I was glad I could have her with me.
