Everything about the cottage was good and clean.
The beach was not usable. The water was dirty and it attracted insects more than usual, this was worsened when temperature increased and wind speed decreased. But the most important thing is that we did not have any bugs inside the cottage. We kept inside and outside clean and we never left any door open.

This cottage was perfect for us to break from a busy life.
Our intention was just to relax and take a few day trips around the Peninsula. It was easy just to stay there and enjoy the serenely beautiful sunrises on the bay, read, sketch, play musical instruments. Everything about the place reflected our values and what we loved, right down to the natural materials, the art, etc. The cottage was perfect as was the view. Arrangements to rent the cottage were easy. We will certainly be doing this again.

The cottage is very clean, it is located in the lovely spot. It is very well equiped, everything in working condition.
Someone came on the weekend to check if we have guests in the cottage (which you are not allowed to have). They knew we have a 10 month old baby, she had her afternoon nap.
They came suddenly with the all possible noise they were able to make: the barking dog, they honked and didn't care of our baby at all. Baby was awake, and if you ever had a baby you know what it means, it ruins all your afternoon. I was expecting more respect and privacy for the money we paid.
We have attached shingles to the stairs to improve traction. Thank You for alerting us to your concerns.

we've rented this property for several years in a row, in the off-season. The scenery is wonderful, with the colours of fall, watching the freighters out of Owen Sound, and the fishing boats, all from the comfort of the cottage, or from the gazebo, or from the water's edge. The facilities are first rate and well maintained. We've never had an unpleasant surprise.
I highly recommend this property.
