We're sorry you feel this way. We we're unaware of any issues. We take every step to ensure the cottage is in good shape. We're not aware of any broken furnature but will going through it after or present guest leaves to ensure this is corrected. Also there is a beautiful view of the west river. This is a full river that is 2 km wide , not a marsh. Clearly this is in the pictures. Thanks , we hope you will try us again sometime.

My wife, 13 year old son and mother-in-law stayed at the cottage the first week of August 2016. Everything was great, the cottage is well equipped and very clean. The landlords were nearby and responded very quickly to every request.

Liked best: The landlords dog, Gus. He was a character and got along with everyone.
Liked least: The only issue we had was that the refrigerator didn't keep icecream frozen. A very minor issue in our books.

“Quiet and private vacation.”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016
2
people found this review helpful

This small and clean two bedroom cottage was a nice place my family spent a weeks vacation at. The cottage is about five minutes from Pictou. You look out on to the ocean but there is no access to the water. Luckily, there are great beaches nearby that can be enjoyed. There is a small corner store right close to the cottage for treats. Also, Unlce Leo brewery is a nice stop for the ones wanting to enjoy a local brewed beverage. The owner installed an air conditioner which came in handy on hot summer days. Kitchen had all basic needs, with the exception of an oven. Pots, dishes, cups, utensils, toaster and tossimo coffeemaker. { Recommendation - bunk bed needs a ladder and to be tightened. Bbq is super basic and could use an upgrade. Deck chairs need to be replaced.} The owner is really nice and easy to communicate with. Having access to wifi, Netflix and a dad player is great for those down times.

“Not for elderly”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Nick was nice the internet worked well, and very close to Pictou. However, we were traveling with three seniors, bunk beds just do not work for someone in their 70s. Also it was very hot and no air conditioning which probably is not very often a problem here. Place was a bit too small. I think a family with a couple of young children would be just fine.

Everything was just as indicated in the communication. A nice quiet place and location close to a small town. Loved it. Thanks so much.

“Propane refill not included”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
2
people found this review helpful

We stayed at the cottage for 3 nights. Overall, I would say that this property is cute, cozy and private but we were disappointed to find soiled diapers and other garbage upon our arrival wchich did not leave a good first impression.
Pros: 1) If you're looking for privacy and a large yard for washer toss, bonfire and other backyard shenannigans, this place is great.
2) Close to everything (grocery store, fish market, beaches all within a 10 mins drive)

Cons: 1) The BBQ ran out of propane on our last night and we were told that the propane for the BBQ was not included with the rental and that we could refill it at a cost. (The cost is not the issue, it's the principle that we would've paid for propane for any other renters for the remainder of the summer)
2) Small detail but the ad states that there is an outdoor dining area but we had to take the dining room table outside to make that happen.

Hello. We are sorry to hear about the garbage not being removed by the time you checked in. We are new to the cottage renting life and have a few bugs to work out and appreciate all the reviews. Upon arriving we ask that all renters let us know if there is anything missing from the cottage that would be good to have added and welcome the suggestions as it will only make it better. As far as the propane supply goes, there is a refill center across the street that is a 10 sec walk that we own and offer a discount. We have learned from experience not to supply the propane as it gets abused by some guests. There is now a table and chairs on the deck as well. Again we are new to this and try our best to accommodate. Thanks for your input.
