“cheap and nasty”
Reviewed August 13, 2008

We recently stayed at these cottages,located just outside Port Hood village.They looked OK from the outside,but couldn't have been cheper on the inside.Cushionfloor throughout(including the shower walls),not a rug in sight.Tiny cramped OLD kitchenette,with no lighting.70's kitchen table and chairs(NOT retro-ORIGINAL 70's)The couch in the living area stank-we had to throw a sheet over it in order to sit on it.The bedding was awful-nubbly old woolen blankets,thin nylon throws.Nowhere to have a campfire,BBQ had to be rented at a cost of $7.50/day-pretty pricey if you are staying for more than a couple of days.The owners obviously did not want to spend a penny more than they had to,there were no extras at all....considering the price of $125/night,I was VERY disappointed.The only positive things were the proximity to the beach,and the owners were actually very nice people.

Helpful?
