Cottage was clean, very nice looking, private and only a couple minutes walk from a beautiful view of the water where we witnessed a gorgeous sunset. The town of Tobermory, as well as Bruce Peninsula National Park, are in close proximity and made for a few nice outings. Amazing place for a honeymoon! (Just be sure to bring pillow cases...none there! Other bedding supplied though.)

Was promised a hottub but was not their when we arrived.Was promised to be installed all week but never showed up.After fighting with renter ,all we got was 150.oo refund.Was not happy,should have been informed by them about the hottub before we arrived . Read more
We regret that the hot tub's electrical system malfunctioned shortly before this renter's stay. It was then misdiagnosed by the hot tub repair shop, such that it took several weeks, as opposed to a few days, to repair. This was beyond our control and we offered a $150 refund without question to all renters impacted by the hot tub's unavailability, including to those who never intended to use it during their stay. This was consistent with the policy of rentcottage, and we are confident that no renter had to "fight" with their staff to obtain the refund. We take pride in maintaining a beautiful, clean and comfortable cottage, for ourselves and our renters. We hope most people would not be deterred from enjoying the cottage and the fabulous Bruce Peninsula by an equipment failure beyond our control, and unrelated to the cottage itself.
A Welcome Respite!

We were delighted upon arrival with the cleanliness of the cottage and the welcoming atmosphere. All of our needs were met: location, amenities and comfort. We will definitely be back!

We were pleasantly surprised with this rental. Although not right on the water it was open and airy and had a lot of room for the kids to roam. The location has some nice points to walk to that are close and on the water. One downside was airflow in the house but again we were there in the height of the 2011 heatwave.
