Nice and clean. This was a very nice location for visting The Bruce. The kids walked down to the beach and were jumping off the pier within 15 mins of their 1st time there. Sauble Beach was wonderful and if you have not been to Indian Head and the Grotto you must go.

After a great rental experience with this organization in July with friends, I decided to rent a cottage on my own for a return visit. This cottage was perfect for my needs, very comfortable, warm and cozy and exceptionally clean. The owner left a hand written welcoming note inviting me to use what I wanted in the cupboard...a nice touch. I definitely would use RentCottage again, as well as rent this unit if I return. Many thanks for a professional job!

After searching on the internet for cottage rentals in the Wiarton area, I found this one available. Through e-mail correspondence we booked the cottage without any complications/delays. The unit itself was clean and located on a quiet residential street. I would describe it as a one-story residence rather than an actual cottage. (All of the current amenities are there.) There are two drawbacks I can think of: it is not beach-front property (if you are seeking that traditional cottage/swimming vacation) and you have to drive anywhere for groceries, tourist sites, etc. As a home-base for visiting the Grey-Bruce area it was excellent but, not to sit idle on a beach within walking distance.
