What Past Guests Are Saying
Nice views, cool water, moon sets, lots of sun and fun!
We have rented this cottage several times. It has a super layout that is great as it allows for full view of the lake. All the amenities are there for you to enjoy your stay. Basement area is quite large with a game table so that's great for kids. Back yard is also flat with grass and great for kids to play. Area is very quite and for family walks or exercise minded, you can go for walks down the lane, around and back. Town shopping is only 15 minutes away so you can pickup any groceries on the way in or anytime you need them.
Georgian/Nottawasaga Bay water is on the cool side, so your usually swimming late morning, mid afternoon. The temp will vary during the summer so you'll need to figure out what works best for you. Its a little rocky at entrance, but once your in the water, its crystal clear and perfect for swimming 5ft+ deep close to shore. We went swimming pretty much every day. We happened to be there when there was a full moon, and as you can see from the pic, its quite nice as it lights up the night.
This cottage has a nice deck view and great reclining deck chairs. If you have small kids you'll need to pay close attention to them on the deck.
We have rented all around Ontario in the last 15 years and clean up rules for the cottage or garbage protocols are same as others. No issue with that. You may need to get a garbage tag at the local store if you are there on a week were there is no pickup. However, the transfer station is quite close.
Overall, top notch property and great cottage. All up ranks high for us for Canada/us cottage/summer retreat experiences. We enjoyed our stay.
Attention Extreme cottage owners!
A Cozy Week with an alarming End!
First i have to say...Overall, your rental property is truly lovely...
My young family and I were more than comfortable and pleasantly surprized with the accomidations during our stay in lovely Meaford. After most of the week was up my husband set off home with the children to allow me to clear things away and close up. I worked for a few hours,which is fine, to tidy up , and put things away. After 10 am I made a point of reviewing the cottage manual to make sure all was complete and in order. To my surprize, upon reviewing fine notations in the manual regarding cleaning...I noticed an additional
60$+ billing fees for even so much as unkept floors, kitchen and bathroom surfaces and garbage disposal...Here it is then...I have managed short and long term housing for years... Long and`` Extreme`` cleaning, accompanied by a long journey home as a guest, left a ``very`` sour taste in my mouth...Note:We were bearly there most of the time.
I not only had to vacate the property late but I had to deal with
`` animal contained garbage`` as I was greeted by a pleasant house keeper! Why with such stipulations must you hire house keeping...House keeping or other staff are hired to clean! Not just throw towels in the washing machine. Most of which I did all week myself!!! I can understand tidy, and in order but please be reasonable... You have a great!! property, don`t spoil it! Use your staff accordingly and your guests will want to return! People rent--- not to own... in this case I would be entised to buy my own cottage...Sincerely, A Once happy yet Frustrated Guest!
Response from RentCottage.com - 09/17/2010
Thank you for your comments. We do ask our renters to clean the cottage at the end of their stay as in these rural areas cleaning services are not readily available. The owner or someone the owner has hired checks the cottage between rentals to ensure the cottage has been left clean and ready.
We do tell each of our renters that the cottage is to be cleaned at the end of their stay at the time of booking and again in the confirmation and final letter we send out. The cleaning list is also available at anytime in the Houserules on the individual cottage profile.

This upscale vacation home was well furnished ad very comfortabl
We spent a week at this lovely location. The spacious floor plan and
comfortable furniture made our stay all the more enjoyable.The kitchen layout
and appliances were a plus.
The property located on Georgian Bay was well maintained and inviting. Sitting
out in a Muskoka chair by the water was most relaxing.
A great place to spend some time.
comfort and sunshine
We loved our stay at this property. We couldn't have asked for more in terms
of comfort and surroundings. The kitchen is well-equipped, the deck is an
outstanding place to enjoy the view, and the location can't be beat.
Georgian Bay Lovers
Modern summer home on beautiful Georgian Bay
This is a lovely, modernly equipped, spacious home right on the water. Great
views even from the skylights on the second level. Having two complete
bathrooms,one on each level, was especially nice for the needs of four adults.
The step-in shower and bedroom on the first level made it particularly handy
for an elderly person. The kitchen was very well equipped, the dining room
table was large and with a view and the living room was comfortable with a
cozy wood burning stove. The wrap around deck with umbrella table was great
with lots of places to sit in the sun and shade.
The home is situated between Owen Sound and Collingwood right outside
Meaford so there are lots of places to explore: restaurants, shops, summer
theatre, local market, hiking trails, the Blue Mountains, kayak rentals, etc.
We loved the space, setting, views and the water for swimming. What we
didn't like was the difficult access to the water and beach area . Also the
barbecue should have been situated on the deck near the patio table and off
the kitchen. This place is better suited for adults, not families.
