We rented a 2 bedroom cottage for one week for our family of 5 + our dog and thought we were getting a great deal - $600. Their rental policy is ridiculous: they book based on 2 people occupancy and charge $75 per person or pet above that (for the week). How many people usually rent a 2 bedroom cottage for 2 people?!
As soon as we walked in - there was an incredibly strong musty smell. Despite trying to air it out, the smell did not go away all week. We went to pull out the sofa bed, only to find someone's ball cap still in it. Obviously it had not been changed/cleaned! We ended up having to pay the $75 for an extra person and still had to go out and buy an air mattress to sleep on!
The cleaning leaves much to be desired. There was bacon hanging off the wires outside our cabin! Things like this should be taken care of before the next renters check in.
A couple days in our toilet stopped flushing properly. The maintenance person did come right away but all he did was flush the toilet a few times!
The furniture was in poor condition - the kitchen table was shakier than Bambi on ice!
They also do not mention when you are renting that yes, canoes are available, but you'll have to share it with another cabin.
The road to our cottage was very rough. They did come to grade it mid-way through the week but they did it with large rocks - the holes were easier to avoid!
There was a nice propane fireplace in the living room - which was turned off. It would have been a nice feature to have in evenings.
We did love the lake and the canoeing but the cottage left much to be desired after spending $600 plus $300 for our "extra" guests and pet. We should have been given money back because we left it much cleaner than when we arrived.
I would not recommend these cottages to my friends & family.
