Response from the owner We enjoy meeting new families, and couples through our rentals. All guests are made aware either prior to arrival or upon arrival that there garbage is to be taken to the local dump upon departure. The Township of Faraday Waste Disposal site is 7.3 kms, or about 15 mins away from the cottages. We provide 1 clear garbage bag to our guests upon arrival and make them aware that the local dump is close by and open even on weekends, and holidays till 5pm, except from Tuesday-Thursday. There is a small charge for cleaning of $50.00 which covers cleaning the cottage prior to arrival and clean up after. We ask that any issues within the cottage be brought to our attention immediately, in order for us to address the problem. We make every effort to make sure our guest enjoy their stay with us.
