Last weekend we rented Carmelita By the Lake to celebrate my wife's 45th birthday. At first the property manager was a bit afraid to rent the property because of the celebration we told her we had planned. That comes sadly from some experiences she outlined she's had some years ago in which she did not rent the property for three... More

My family and I are currently renting this property for March Break. I truly don't understand where all the negative comments previously posted are all about because we rent properties three times a year and this is the most beautiful vacation rental we have ever had the fortune of staying in. This property is spacious, clean, offers more than we... More

I am not sure where everyone is getting all these negative facts from. I've stayed at Carmelita By the Lake many times over the past 3 years and know it's one of the best properties in Haliburton. I have also recommended this property to co-workers and they also have had a very good experience with the property and the owner.... More

We had a family reunion at this place. It was last minute, so we did not have much choice in the area. The place was alright, however, far from a high standard or justifying the asked rental price. I cannot imagine this place as a bed and breakfast renting each room individually. The rooms are small and can hear through... More

Spent New Year there with friends. This cottage was the only option since we procrastinated with booking. The price was higher than most cottages but we had no choice. The place: The cottage was nice and spacious, however, as the other reviewer said it's not waterfront and close to a fairly busy road (ATVs, snowmobiles, and cars in general). Inside... More

December 2011 our property was rented by a group in theirs 20's who lost there deposit because they did not clean the property. Not only was the property not clean but smoke detectors were disconnected an many other issues. Again like any others who does not uphold the agreement in the contract signed, if the property is not given back... More

The owner of the woman is a career liar. She takes the security deposit and does not return it. She finds reasons to come up with some excuse not to return the security deposit. DO NOT STAY THERE Or you will be robbed of your money. There should be a police report against her.

I spent a new year night with my friends at that place. The place it self was good, clean and in good condition. It had enough sleeping space, but one of the bedrooms was den. Living room was very big and cosy. The fireplace did its work. It created very calm and friendly aura. The downside is the host. Be... More

I am always open to reviews that are truthful and are truly meant to help us do better. In this case, we have a review in which the renters, damaged the properties in which so much of the damaged looked that they were intentionally. After such, we refused to refund the $500 security deposit which is clearly outlined in the... More
