“Beautiful location and well-appointed cottage.”
Cottage was spotless, updated, and overall very lovely. I am very picky about cleanliness and I was not disappointed. Past concerns appear to have been remedied. Great spot for our kids to catch frogs and enjoy nature. Not so great for our 13-month old, but she is a busy girl. We kept very busy visiting local beaches and enjoying the national park. We fell in love with the area. A great vacation for those who love nature.
“Lovely Cottage on the Bruce!”
Starlit Cove Cottage is a wonderful little spot that is quite private. It has lovely seating areas between the cottage and the lake. You can choose sun or shade dock, deck or sand. There are several very comfy reclining chairs. It is very quiet and well protected from neighbouring cottages. You can't see your neighbours cottages and you can only see the docks. The stars and moon were wonderful. We enjoyed the three separate sleeping areas as we had our adult sons and family with us. The beds were comfortable. There was one washroom on each floor. One with a shower and one with a bathtub. This worked well for our families. The kitchen was well equipped and had a larger table to seat eight. We would have liked to have similar seating outdoors but the patio table only seated 4. There is no swimming from the cottage as the lake levels are too low. There is however a very nice little community beach within a 5 minute walk. The water was very clean and the sand was abundant. Unfortunately the cleaning service had not done a good job in preparing the cottage for us so that was a disappointment. It took a little of the shine off our initial impression of the cottage. The owners know of this problem and we assume they will rectify this situation. We would definitely like to rent this cottage again.
Response from the manager Thank you for your comments, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay! The cottage owner has had the cottage fully cleaned. If such concerns about cleaning arise in future while you are at the cottage, please call our office and we would be happy to assist. We hope to hear from you again!
“satisfactory stay but needs a thorough cleaning”
Although the cottage was in good shape overall we found that the deck area was much older than what appeared in the photos. We also found it very odd to have such a small outdoor table and no chairs to sit at the table other than the loungers. Most of all though we were disappointed in how dirty the place was. On the surface it appeared clean but there were sticky areas on the tables, counters and floors as well as massive amounts of dirt under all of the furniture and floor corners. The screens also do not appear to fit the windows properly and the cottage was filled with bugs.
“Great family experience!”
We rented this cottage for a family get together, we were 6 adults, 1 child, and 1 baby. The cottage is beautiful and was very clean when we arrived. At first we thought the fridge was broken. We called to request it to be repaired, and the owners offered immediate action to fix it. Fortunately, it kicked on and we didn't have any further problems. The kayaks were great to have for our use. The cottage is located very close to many entrances to the Bruce trail for day trips. Also, a drive to Tobermory is only about 30 minutes by car, which was nice for a day trip. It is a very spacious cottage, and has lots of wonderful features including a beautiful balcony and deck. Occasionally we saw/spoke to the neighbours at the end of the docks, but overall the cottage is extremely private. The water at the end of the dock was very shallow, so the best swimming is at the shared beach, which is about a 10 minute walk away. However, it was nice to be able to launch the kayaks from your "backyard". The sand in the back was great to allow the kiddo to play, without having to spend the entire day at the beach. My only suggestions are: 1. The lower level bathroom could use an update. Its getting a little old and has been well used. 2. The table on the deck was not large enough for our party size to eat outside. It would be nice if a larger table and more outdoor seating was provided. We had to eat inside every meal. (We were the max party size allowed, but this it was should be accommodated for). 3. Some cottages had little golf carts to use to get to the beach. This would have been handy for carrying all the stuff over. Another note: laundry onsite was a nice feature, however, I'm not sure people knew the lint trap was at the back of the dryer, it didn't appear to have been emptied in a long time! A serious fire hazard. I would hate for this place to burn down. Overall, we had a great time, and I would definitely rent this cottage again and visit this area again. Thanks!
