“It was the best holiday we ever had. Exceptional cottage”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

Hands down this was the best accommodations we have ever stayed at. It was way better than the photos. The views and sunsets were fantastic. I look forward to staying there next year.

Loved the cottage and the location, rocky beach was good, and water was very refreshing! Singing sands was nearby for a quick beach trip and Tobemory had lots of things for all the family

“Paradise Found”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2010

From the moment we arrived till the morning we left our family savoured every second of our stay at "the good life". We have been coming to this area for many years. This was by far the best cottage we have been to. Great location in a private setting. The large on shore deck and chairs were fantastic to use both during the day and at night for star gazing.Well laid out pathways made it easy to get to the deck and the water and were even lit at night. As we are gardeners we really enjoyed the garden in front with its plants selected to attract different species of butterflies and humming birds. The large enclosed wrap around with deck with glass panels that allow for great views and shelter for the days when the wind picks up. Inside the cottage was a great open concept with the bedrooms tucked away to allow for sleeping in. The appliances were top notch. Having said all this it was the little things that helped set "the good life" apart from the other cottages we rented. Things like a pot of fresh herbs growing on the deck, a well stocked miniature library in the rec room, a kitchen that seemed to have everything we needed that we forgot to bring with us, a good selection of CDs etc. It was truly like staying at a good friends place where you really feel welcome. The only negative part to staying at "the good life" was having to leave. To the owners, thanks for sharing this wonderful spot with our family. We will return! The McMillan Family

“Great Cottage”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2010

The cottage was great, very clean and tidy and in excellent condition. Everything we needed was there including the kitchen acc's. Great spot right on the water and very private.

“Felt like "home away from home"!”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2009

This cottage was very well equipped to make you feel right at home. The beds were comfortable and the loft with the sky lights made it feel like you were sleeping under the stars!The rec room in the lower level is very warm and cozy. We found it very peaceful and quiet and saw lots of wildlife in the area. Although the tap water was safe to drink we chose to drink bottled water(water has a slight brownish colour to it). The contact people were very polite and helpful when we called. We would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. The only thing we missed having at this particular cottage was a kayak (you can rent them in Tobermory)!

“What a view!”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2009

This is our 6th time renting a cottage in the Tobermory area, and this cottage has been our favorite for several reasons. First of all the weather was inclement for most of the time, but we have a relaxing time in the cottage with the view, surrondings and inside comfort. Gorgeous mature trees and lovely gardens, with plants still in flower, made every view a beautiful look out. The love with which the cottage is decorated made it homey, fun and relaxing. To watch the different weather systems brew up on the lake was fantastic. The only sad part of the visit was when Flicker flew into the window and broke it's neck. As birders we prefer to see them flying rather then dead on the deck. We kept debating on whether we could just stay a little longer. We feel very fortunate to be able to stay in such a splendid cottage.

“Good life review”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2009

We have been vacationing on the upper Bruce for eight years and have stayed at several different cottages. This was definitely one of the nicer ones. Besides the terrific location, the friendly service of the people at rentcottages keeps us coming back every year. Pros of the Good Life: Everything we needed was there. There were little touches that made the place feel like a home and not just a rental property. I loved the flowers!!!! Herbs in a pot on the deck. The entry into the water for swimming was terrific too. Great to have internet Stunning rec room in basement Nice bay for kayaking (I brought my own) Did you provide the great weather? Shooting stars? clear water? They were all great too. Cons of the Good Life: The hanging hooks in the loft bedroom fell off the wall. There was no real place to hang clothes there. It was awkward to have the masterbedroom be so open to the living area. The portable screen didn't really provide enough privacy for me. It might help to have curtains you could draw across the glass railings. I ended up throwing towels over it when I needed privacy. I would have loved to have had the hot tub available!!! We really like to stay up on the cape but I would definitely consider staying at the Good Life again. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation. When I close my eyes at night I like to picture myself up there. It's what gets me through the year so I can go again next summer.

“Awesome.............Awesome Stay”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2009

This was more then we expected. It was the first time I was able to bring my Mom to Tobermory and we can't wait to come back. The house was beautiful and very well kept. Can't wait to come again next year

“Great Vacation Get Away”

Reviewed 6 Feb 2009

We loved the home. It was isolated and located on Lake Huron..beautiful sunsets and a great place to take out our Kayaks with the our two young sons. We love visiting Tobermory and enjoy the quaint fishing community and tourist area. Plenty of places to visit if you love the outdoors. We would highly recommend renting this home and would also rent it again.
