Had an amazing time at Trenanthia cottage on Sparrow Lake. Cottage was clean and spacious, fireplaces were burning and Laura was great.
Wow... what a beautiful cottage that kept growing as we walked through it. With only 2 of us visiting Trenanthia, we lost each other a few times lol. A warm fire ripping in both fireplaces and fresh baked cookies awaiting our arrival.. yummo! We took advantage of the lakefront & went snowshoeing on the lake checking out all the ice fishing huts out there.. fun! What a better way to end the evening than sitting in the hot tub & sauna (which was our favourite) on a cold snowy night .The cupboards in the kitchen were labelled which made it super easy looking for something. It really felt like we were staying at a friends cottage, was very warm, inviting & had everything there you needed. Laura was such a pleasure to talk to & help us out along the way to make it perfect..Thanks :) Can't wait to go back!!
We were so looking forward to a fabulous family get away, we stayed at the 2nd cottage as the original was not available.
Upon arrival this is what we found...
-not able to use hot tub first night as the guest before us had conatminated it and it had to be drained
-both mats in the large bedroom bathroom smelled of vomit
-broken blinds in the sunroom
-many-many disgusting stains on carpets
-stains on walls
-both sliding door screens torn
-hockey game broken
-not a single pool cue with a tip, many also missing the ends
-broken bed frame
-volley ball net-no volleyball
-crumpled tissue in corner of bedroom with blood on it
When we reported it, the offer was made to come and fix things, we declined as we did not want repairs going on while we were staying there.
The lake was super weedy, not sandy at all. Not ideal for swimming.
All in all a big disappointment,
Cottage was perfect for a getaway. Clean, spacious and room for everyone. They even went the extra mile and brought in a playpen for my daughter. Has all the appliances needed and the games room was so fun!
We will definitely be renting again. Laura was so amazing to book with, very fast response time
This was my third time booking a week away at Trenanthia cottage and I had nothing short of an exceptional time. The house has a lot of space and is always kept in pristine condition. You really can't beat the views, privacy, games room and memories. The place has so much character and I can't wait to go back. Communication with Laura is always quick, positive and super helpful! 12/10 rating, no doubt.
The cottage is spacious and beautiful and super cozy. Laura and her team were SO helpful and friendly the entire time I was planning the trip- more helpful than any one of the other dozen people I was emailing about cottages. If you're looking for an affordable cottage getaway with plenty of space and lots to do, look no further!
Cottage is as warm as Laura.. :) Eventhough we didnt meet she is an extremely caring person.The cottage is beautiful.Nothing we felt was missing.The lake view was breathtaking in fall.Would visit here again most definitely.
