Lakeview Resort
Reviewed 19 August 2012

Our family rented four of the cottages at Lakeview Resort.the week of August 11th. 2012. The cottages in general were unkept with dirty shower stalls & curtains, ants on the kitchen counter in the cabin nearest the lake, and unkept floors & ceilings that likely had not been swept for months/years (plenty of webs & spiders). The doors on all cottages require repairs to ensure they close properly. The advertised rental boats have motors that are dysfunctional & unreliable. There were also several pieces of lumber , cement & a wheelbarrow close to the cottage nearest the lake. The beach area was unkept -stones/rocks.-needs removal of rocks/debris.
These cottages & the grounds have the potential to be quite pretty if improvements were made to the overal condition of the cottages as well as ensuring the cottages are cleaned between visitors. Cottage #5, nearest the lake would benefit from newer walls, floors & ceilings. We definitely will not be returning here unless the conditions improve significantly. Also, those responsible for the cottages did not accept esponsibility for the condition of the cottages : blamed it on the "cleaning" contractors.

Our family spent a wonderful week on Manitoulin Island but were very disappointed with Lakeview Resort. On the plus side, the appliances all worked, the beds were ok and there was sufficient room for us. The owner was pleasant. Instead of quaint surroundings however, as advertised, our cabin was surrounded by the products of renovations (bricks, boards, piles of wood etc.).The cabin was up on blocks and fully open underneath. There was no grass; only crusher dust outside our door. On the inside, at least 2-3 times a day; there was no water and we had to wait for it to return. The bathroom was small and the toilet was on uneven ground. The bathroom fixtures were old and rusted. There were holes in the floor boards and the windows were very old. The oven was dirty, the furniture stained and our cabin was not located on the lake. The door base was broken and bugs kept coming in. There was a nail sticking up on the floor that we had to nail down. None of the cupboards matched. We paid a lot of money for this accommodation and felt that we should have been informed that this resort was currently being renovated and charged a lesser rate.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask if the renovations have been completed; also ask if your cottage is next to the lake
