What Past Guests Are Saying
The cottage description is at least inaccurate and at most deceiving. "this cottage has it all" is a huge exaggeration. It is a very basic cottage with bare minimum of everything: only two lounge chairs outside, the patio set has only four chairs, knives beyond dull, etc. It is also dark and doesn't have a lake view from the deck (as opposed to a misleading photo). The bay is very shallow and a half kilometer into the water it is still thigh deep for a short person. Kids hated it because they couldn't swim. Shore line is 300m away and can be reached by a long dock. You will need to use a vertical ladder to get to the ground which is very unsafe for small kids and older adults (actually, you will have to wade through overgrown weeds once you managed the ladder).
Response from RentCottage.com - 03/15/2013
Thank you for taking the time to review the property and I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay.
We do advertise on the site that the water levels are low and you have to walk 300 meters to access the water which is gradual entry once you reach it and also due to the low water levels the shoreline has become a sand/mud mixture with rocks and grass/reeds growing along it.
With regards to the dock we advertise it as being available as a viewing platform and not for use to access the water.
We had two pictures of the view of the lake from the deck, so I can see how this could have been confusing and I appologize. One was current and one was quite old and showed the cottage when there wasn't as much screeming around it. I have removed the older picture to avoid any further confusion.
I would like to thank you again for taking the time to comment.
