Reviewed September 17, 2009

I would like to begin my review by stating that the cabin to which we were assigned was clearly the worst cabin on the property.

We arrived at our cabin “Cozy Brook South” and were quite surprised at what we found. We decided to stay at Ephraim Village Cottages because we have two dogs and thought that it would be ideal to have a private cabin. Much to our surprise, Cozy Brook South is actually one half of a very small cabin (the other half is Cozy Brook North”. Needless to say, we were immediately disappointed with the size of the cabin and the fact that our unit was adjacent to another unit. Upon our arrival we could also see that a large chunk of the front blind was mangled and missing. The owner informed us that a dog had damaged the blinds and that another blind was on order.

The situation did not improve upon entering the unit. The website for the property shows large, bright, relatively modern looking cottages. This unit was tiny and resembled an old hunting camp. The kitchen was tiny and there was tape on the side of the refrigerator where the front door scrapes it when open, the living area was so small that there is barely any space when the sofa bed is pulled out, and as was mentioned before the blind was partially missing. In addition, there was no curtain on the window in the front door. This was a problem, since the sofa bed is in the main room. There was absolutely no privacy in this room, which made it quite difficult to sleep. The sofa bed is also extremely uncomfortable and was only bearable with a foam mattress on top of the bed. The bedroom carpet was dirty and the bathroom tiny and outdated. Again, this cabin appeared to be the worst on the property, and others did actually resemble the pictures posted online.

The website also makes it appear that the property in directly on the water and this is the case for one or two of the structures. Our cottage overlooked a work shed, other cottages, and the dumpsters, which were overflowing for the first two days of our visit.
Overall, Ephraim is a lovely town and Ephraim Village Cottages are in a convenient location and we did manage to have a good time, however, if you are considering this property beware of Cozy Brook and ask for pictures of/ information on the specific unit in which you will be staying. Our neighbor in Cozy Brook said that when she walked in to her unit her heart sank, but that she had stayed on the property previously in another cottage and that it was much better. The unit was fairly clean other than the carpet, but was a far cry from what we were expecting based on the website.
