“Clean and convenient but a bit utilitarian and characterless”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I had high hopes for these cottages. If you are looking for somewhere that is clean and easy then they are probably a good choice, but I found them characterless and sparten. The bathrooms feel like the kind you might find in a smart chain restaurant, and they have poorly specified the design criteria - lighting, cooking appliances etc. They aren't even that cheap. I also thought that they could have provided more of the basics - soap, dishwasher tablets, washing up detergent etc.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I go here every year and it is a great place to stay. Cottages are clean (the renters have to clean them) and the fishing is pretty good. You are right on the bay.

The only downfall is loading/unloading your vehicle. You have to load everything into this little handcart and then walk it up to your cottage. It would be nice if they allowed you to pull up to the cottage to load/unload. It is not easy for handicapped people to walk that distance. Also, the pots and pans have got to go. I bring my own every year. The eggs stick in the crappy pans they have.

Other than that, it's worth the money.

Room Tip: All the cottages are nice

HI!

thank you very much for your review. We are addressing the pots and pans issue by replacing them with non-stick, unfortunatly they do not last very long :(.

We hope to see you again in the future!
