The cottage was spacious, clean and everything there that you could possibly need. Gorgerous view of the bay and sunsets down by the water. No dock and very rocky shoreline so it was difficult for swimming, especially for young kids and the elderly. Water shoes definetely needed. Over all a great spot.

We arrived to a homemade lemon poppy seed loaf and fresh cut flowers on the dining room table and a friendly note. The cottage had every comfort of home with ample space. The kids loved it, the adults had room to relax and the view was fabulous. In the evenings we roasted marshmellows at the fire pit and settled into an evening of popcorn and movies,there was sattelite and surround sound.
The kids had fun exploring and searching for fossilized rocks, they even named the large bolders as destinations. Water shoes are a definite must, but if it is sand you are longing for a 20 minute drive to Sauble beach and there you have it.
We would love to make time to come again. Thanks for a fun and relaxing stay.

This is a beautiful cottage, with all the luxuries of home and then some. We had a wonderful family vacation. The only reason I may look elsewhere this year is because the shoreline was very rocky and the water was so cold our kids really didn't enjoy swimming that much.
