Based on the review I'd read here on TripAdvisor, as well as the photos on North Shore Cottages website, I anticipated the lodgings to be small, a bit dated, but clean, quaint, and well maintained. And they were, in fact, all of those things, with the exception of well maintained. Chipping paint and water stained and drooping ceilings were difficult to overlook. The deck was very small, and the shower in the bathroom was just a plastic stall shower.
None of this was enough to make me want to demand my money back or anything, but I was a bit disappointed. I was expected the cottages to be kept up more than they were. That being said, the owner was very pleasant, the bed was comfortable, and the location was great. Not sure that I'd recommend this to anybody for the price that we paid for it, and I probably wouldn't stay here again, but it wasn't a total dive.
