This was an ideal location near Owen Sound for our family 'reunion'. The owner was flexible to allow our grown 'children' and their two dogs to join us for part of our week stay. The cottage is very spacious, well-supplied kitchen (dishes, cleaning items, etc.) The Bbq, 4 outdoor sitting areas (including waterfront) were well-used depending on shade/sun choices. Phone/internet access was a bonus feature.
Neighbourhood was quiet/beach road good walking area. Close to hiking/area parks, etc.
Communication with Cottage Rental company was prompt/helpful.

The location of the cottage right on the bay was great although the water is colder than we like for swimming. Since the week was very hot, we enjoyed cooling off. The house was great for a family with lots of room and the living spaces are very comfortable but since it was so hot it was a little uncomfortable in the cottage in the evenings when we couldn't be outside due to the mosquitoes. Thank goodness the owner brought 3 fans to help. The cottage had all the amenities of home except the laundry facilities are in a dark "scary" basement and weren't great. But the owner did get a repair man over to get the washer going within 2 days. The outside was wonderful with the seating area under the "carport", the deck with the BBQ and table set, and firepit at the dock area at the water was used a lot. The location is good in respect to closeness to a city and it's stores and Sauble isn't too far away. All in all we had a great week!
