Great vacation spot
A unique spot in Ontario, very enjoyable, our dog loved it as well. Water activities and wildlife were most memorable.
Peaceful get away from the everyday!
We had such a wonderful time here! Very peaceful, beautiful property. It was nice to get away from the city and we really enjoyed learning to live 'off the grid'! The cottage was beautiful and had everything you could possibly need. We had some bad weather but we were never bored as there were plenty of books and games to entertain everyone. The walk to the mainland was extremely enjoyable and we with we had done it more. The kids loved chasing the frogs! Only downside was that the swimming was not good...very mucky, slimy bottom in front of the cottage. We did enjoy the kayaks though..just wish it hadn't been so windy so we could have gotten out more.
The cottage itself is gorgeous with the tongue and groove throughout. The balcony off the master bedroom was very nice.
The owner was very nice and helpful!
What a wonderful, relaxing time!
It was a beautiful cottage that was in excellent condition and had everything we needed. The location was very peaceful and quiet. The marina was a nice 30 minute walk where we got a little wet going through a waist high creek but it was easy to find. The beach at the cottage was a little muddy; but we got to use the canoe and kayaks which were nice! The cottage had dozens of books, games, puzzles and much more all provided by the owners to use during our stay as well as a beautiful gift basket as a welcome gift. The owner promptly met us at the marina and took us to the cottage with a guided tour of the area. He also made sure we were taken care of and showed us all around the cottage and made sure we were comfortable with everything before he left. Overall we had no major problems and were very pleased with our stay and returned home relaxed and rejuvinated!!
A little piece of paradise!
If you want a quite location to relax, enjoy nature, and just generally leave all the every hustle behind this place is for you. This is the first vacation where we actually felt refreshed at the end of the week.
Best week of our summer!
We had such a good time. We booked last minute once we realized the summer was almost over and we are so glad we did. Being at an off-the-grid cottage taught us lessons we continue to heed. It was peaceful, quiet, relaxing, and fun too. We loved the frogs and minnows, flowers and trees. We will definitely be back!
Island Bliss Review
Owner very welcoming. Helped us carry supplies over a fairly long rockey area to cottage.
Cottage very nicely finished. Locally milled cedar in bathroom which smelled at bit cedarey after a shower - lovely.
Beautiful outlook from front. Lots of birds (including egrets) and frogs.
Good swimming was a short pleasant walk away.
The "off the grid" experience was very interesting and taught us things we should do at home. A bit of problem with the toilet which the owner came and dealt with quickly.
Located on an island with a number of other cottages. Privacy still very good. Swimming not the best in front of cottage but a short walk away. Canoe and kayaks are a great plus. Used daily. Easy to use.
We were a bit more island bound than we had originally thought. The "walk" to mainland involved getting wet and muddy. We did canoe in one day but with loaded boats and inexperienced paddlers it took an hour. Water taxi cost $45.00 round trip. Once we relaxed about the island part, we loved it.
Hope this helps

Switch Off and Recharge at Island Bliss Cottage
The service provided by the folks at RentCottage was great. Prompt, courteous and friendly. They even helped arrange for linens. The owners were helpful in transporting us to the Island on our arrival and gave us a really practical orientation of their cottage. They made us feel very welcome.
The "Cottage Profile" for Island Bliss was totally accurate. This is a clean, comfortable and well equipped family cottage. It is ideally suited for folks who want to stay-put and relax. We enjoyed the cottage for seven days (with a 5 year old) and only left the island once (by water taxi) for a day trip to Sauble Beach and a few groceries.
The cottage is very private, surrounded by a rocky shore line and a few neighbouring cottages. Exploring rock pools and catching frogs, swimming off the dock and kayaking in the shallow waters were our main activities. This cottage lends itself to reading, relaxing and recharging your batteries. Barbeques on the deck followed by bedtime stories and watching the sunset by the fire-pit...a perfect family retreat.
The peaceful and somewhat remote setting of Island Bliss makes this the ideal place to reconnect with your family away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The eco-friendly aspects of this off the grid cottage make you mindful of our relationship with the environment in a positive way.
