The cottage is very well kept and the owners provide you with a tremendous amount of information of things to do, places to visit and eat and attractions of the area. The setting is very private with landscaping and the views from the second floor balcony are tremendous. The large back yard provides the ability to have intimate family get together over the campfire pit or with games we brought like bocce ball, horse shoes and other outdoor games. The WIFI and Cable TV worked exceptional. We were able to really visit the neat towns from this central location. We visited Bayfield and enjoyed a fantastic sunset, a great dinner at Black Dog Village Pub and ice cream at Coppenhagens across the street. Very historic and interesting downtown area. We visited Goderich, named Canada's prettiest city, with a centralized square which springs out from the main city building, very cool. Great lunch at West Street Willy's Eatery and fun strolling streets and city beach. Highly recommend dinner in Exeter, ON at Eddingtons too. One day was a play day and we saw two plays in Stratford, ON (less than one hour away), and enjoyed both the shopping there and the grate places to eat. We made several visits to the Pinery Provincial Park and Grand Bend. Loved to explore the beautiful beaches of the Pinery. Darryl and Allyson have really stocked the place well and there are nearby farmers markets and grocery stores in Grand Bend and Bayfield to provide you with whatever you need to grill out and enjoy the patio or prepare something inside. Everything you need to use in the kitchen is there. Our family is from Michigan and our daughter, husband and baby from California were also there for the family gathering. Great time.
We had a great time at the house. Very well equipped, and lovely backyard for the kids with a view of the lake. Short walk to the beach. Short drive to nearby Grand Bend. Would visit again.
This cottage had everything we needed and I wish we would have been able to stay longer! The cottage had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay including a firepit, bbq, TV, a well-appointed kitchen and a helpful owner. The yard was gorgeous and we loved the view of the lake from the deck.
We enjoyed our stay here immensely. Everything we needed was there and every comfort available. Well stocked, comfortable and cozy. Relaxed by the fire and enjoyed a peaceful retreat! Darryl was available to answer any questions and made sure we had everything we needed!
My fiancée and I were looking for a quiet place to spend a couple nights near the water that was clean, modern and spacious.
This location had everything we were looking for and I am sure would be a perfect spot for any family. Would absolutely recommend this location and hopefully can book it again in the summer months.
