- Very Good
Our family had a great time at this beautiful place. The cottage itself was very decent and the location was very private and relaxing with its own private beach. Cant say anything bad. Was a great experience and look forward to going back.
“My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this cottage property!”
This cottage property was fabulous. The grounds were perfect and the cottage was great. We loved having access to the canoe and the view of Georgian Bay truly took our breath away. At times it appeared so blue we swore we were in the Carribean! The kids enjoyed the volleyball/badminton net, as well as the ping pong table. If there was one improvement to be made to bring this rating to an "Excellent" 5 stars, it would be for the beds to be upgraded. The masterbedroom has a sagging mattress that made for a poor nights sleep. Otherwise we loved our time at this cottage and would consider renting it again (especially if the beds were replaced).
“Great yard - decent cottage”
Ping pong table is a health and safety hazard. It has to go. It is going to fall on someone. That back section of the cottage is really musty. Living room is the best room in the house (it is quite large) but furniture needs updating. The furniture in the sun room also needs updating - that room should be more inviting and useful than it is. The yard and the beach are the highlight, though a dining set would be a great improvement on the picnic table. The cleaning requirements at the end of the stay are really over the top though. It is really only a 6 day rental because you get in late on day 1 and have to be out early on the last day and you are expected to vacuum and wash floors!!?
“Good but could have been great.”
Overall it was a good experience, but there were several flaws keeping it from a great experience. Upon arrival we discovered only one key in the lock box. Three of the beds still had used linens on them. At the end of our stay, when we started to clean, the vacuum spewed dirt and grit, because the bag was over full. All of these things could have been remedied if the owner had taken a little more care. For the price, cleaning should be included. On the positive side - great location, lots of room inside and out. Plenty to keep everybody occupied regardless of the weather. Well equipped kitchen, second fridge in sun room very handy. Layout of cottage ideal for our three generation vacation RentCottage staff, very helpful and easy to deal with
“Amazing cottage location”
We had a great experience at this cottage. It had everything we needed for cooking and grilling and relaxing. We had some rain a couple days and watched satellite tv. We had gorgeous sunsets. The view is simply spectacular. We went boating. The cottage was comfortable and private. The only downside for us was that we went in early June when it is much too cold to swim in Georgian Bay. I can only imagine how wonderful this place would be in august.
“Kitsch & Cosy with a gorgeous lakeside outlook”
Rainbow Beach cottage is a 'good' option for cottage accommodation in Owen Sound. When you enter the cottage you'd be forgiven for expecting your Grandma to pop her head around the corner with a plate of cookies... It's 100% kitsch, with its vintage & antique collectables, old school furniture and a fun selection of videos from the 80's & 90's when we all still used Vcrs. It's not luxurious, but it is homely and has a well stocked kitchen for easy eat-in meals. As two couples, we stayed for 4 days over Easter and were out during the day & home for evenings, so the cottage suited us and was well 'winterized'. The deck overlooking the lake offered us some gorgeous sunsets and the ping pong table gave us hours of fun. The living area is generous so it could easily accommodate families holidaying together. If you're looking for a down-to-earth, homely cottage experience, then this property will be great for you as it's an easy drive into Tobermory and close to many Bruce Trail hikes. It could definitely do with an upgrade, whilst retaining its vintage charm, and some plug-in fragrance diffusers might help to offer a fresher first impression as the property did feel a little musty when we arrived. All in all we were happy with our time at Rainbow Cottage and thank them for having us!
“Loved the snow!”
Great cottage, conveniently located to Owen Sound and the Bruce Trail, if looking for snow to snowshoe in then this area is perfect in February!
It was great - lots of fun! Fun for the whole family!! Booking was a breeze. The cottage was sparkling clean and beautifully equipped. Canoeing in crystal clear water was awesome. The sunsets were spectacular. Two thumbs up !!
“Spacious cottage with everything you need”
It is a lovely spacious cottage with everything you need for an enjoyable week. Lots of indoor and outdoor activities (great box of sport equipment) including a ping pong table for rainy days. Terrific deck and waterfront. The water was very shallow and very quiet, good canoeing and did not see any motorboats. Pleasant drive into Owen Sound for shopping, folk music festival and drive-in theatre.
“Owen Sound in June”
We were only there for five days but enjoyed the privacy,being close to the waterand easy access to Owen Sound for meals etc.Also the conservation area being close by was a plus..Hope to rent again in the future..
