“Great holiday”
Reviewed 1 February 2008

We have been going to Cedar cove for the past 5 years. The last 2 years and this year(2008)we have booked for two weeks instead of one week. Great holiday. We live in Ottawa which is an hour away. Great fishing. Great boating. Nice pool and ok beach. As we are all adults we can relax on the beach or on the boat. Overall we like it though more expensive than other places, you do have access to a pool, games room nice restaurant and a little store. By the way just like the previous owners, the new owners are fantastic.They are very helpful and ensure that your stay with them is enjoyable.

The kids would rate this "Above Average", but to be fair, we are regulars so maybe this would be "Average" for newcomers.

We have booked cottages (cabins) at Cedar Cove for the last 5 years in a row. There are 3 families that travel together - 5 children, 6 adults. We rent 2-3 cottages depending on the ones we are getting (they are different sizes). By no means is Cedar Cove perfect, but the children (currently aged 7-12) LOVE it here and they look forward to their week's vacation here every single year. They happily spend hours just amusing themselves walking around, riding their bikes, swimming in the pool, playing on the beach, going to the youth recreation centre thing, fishing, etc. The cottages have enough amenities to survive rainy days inside if necessary, and we cook almost every meal on the BBQ on the deck. In our opinion, the cottage rentals are great if you aren't into camping/tenting (we aren't) but you still want to stay in a full-service campsite type of place. There can be problems, for sure, but nothing that would make us considering stopping an annual vacation there. If it were just adults, we'd probably get bored...but the children always have a wonderful time with so much for them to do that we adults can easily spend our days napping, reading magazines, relaxing, etc. without having to amuse children. The fact there is a pool along with the beach, and lots of walking/biking paths is great. The little store helps, too .. and the nearest village (Pakenham) is kind of cute for when you really need a break from Cedar Cove.

  • Liked — Family fun with happy children
  • Disliked — Some cottages/cabins are nicer than others

no closed in screen porches
no sandy beach, sand was all covered in duck crap, and the water
was full of weeds.
the cottage was not really clean
charge way to much, and you need a down payment
on everything
