Plank Road Cottages & Marina
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We just returned from Plank road cottages. We stayed for the long weekend in cabins 6&7. We had 8 adults and 3 children in our group. The cabins were large and came with everything needed. The property and the cabins were all clean and in good condition. The host and his soon to be wife went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. The fishing on the lake was great and the host Etienne gave us some excellent advice on where and how to catch the big ones. The price was fair and one of the best we found when looking. I would stay here again.

We spent 4 nights there in August, and between the fishing and the Karaoke, we experienced alot of fun. I recommend this for all families to stay at when going to Rice Lake or if you are looking for a cottage to stay at. The owners are fine people and very comfortable to talk with. I hope to come again next year.

My wife and I have stayed at Plank Road three times in the last two years. There are new owners since 2010 and Etienne and Lydia are fantastic hosts. They've put alot of time and money into improving the park and cottages and any feedback prior to 2010 should be disregarded by any possible vacationers. All the basic essentials provided and the environment is relaxing. Any comments on sheets and fees by previous individuals is unfounded. I suggest they read the Plank Road website details before negatively commenting and educate themselves before travelling. I have been satisfied each time I stayed at Plank Road and plan to return regularly.

Room Tip: The rooms in cottage 10 are adequate size and a dresser for clothes and ceiling fan for circulation

Horrible. No sheets and you get charged for guests that visit you after nine who only stay for an hour (25 bucks for every visitor.)

Apparently because they are using their water.

These young guests reserved for 2 people and arrived with 3 for a one bedroom cottage. We gave the courtesy of one extra person at no charge. After 9 pm, an additional 4 people showed up without approval and when approached, they became confrontational and disrespectful. 2 people left at about 10:30 and the others were still on site when we went to bed after 11:15. They were charged $25 per person for the extra 4 people. The rules clearly state that all visitors must leave the premises by 9pm, it had nothing to do with water. We are a family resort and must respect ALL guests. Regarding the bedsheets, our website also clearly states that guests are to bring their own linens otherwise there is a $10 fee, for which we did not charge them.

My family came to Toronto for my son's wedding and we wanted to get away all together afterwards. Our group was 13 - myself and my partner and my 3 other adult children and their partners with one grandchild,all from Vancouver, my sister and her husband from Ireland and my son and his new wife from Toronto.
The resort provide clean, basic accommodation.The cottages are old but are well equipped and comfortable. The beach was good for swimming.We stayed 3 nights and for non- fishers, that was enough.The resort is well run. Lydia and Etienne were helpful and very thoughtful towards the just married couple.We all had a good time .

We decided to explore the wonderful driving roads of Northumberland County on our Motorcycles. Gores Landing was very central to our day trips. Our cottage was clean and everything worked. The hosts, Etienne and Lydia and family were great. They were very accomodating. The place is well kept and the scenery is beautiful.
