Delightful, Comfortable and Spacious Home and Property
"Three generations of our family (parents, adult children and young grandchildren) greatly enjoyed our week long get together at this comfortable and spacious home. The house layout allowed separation for each family when needed but ample gathering space for everything else. The house was beautifully clean and comfortable; bathrooms associated with each room plus a powder room were particularly appreciated; the kitchen was modern with a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, stove and so well equipped with dishes, glasses, pots, pans, casseroles, serving dishes cutlery and utensils (we have rented in many locations and this kitchen was among the best we have encountered). Because we had young children in the group we did not eat out much, so the wonderful kitchen, large dining table and barbeque and large table on the deck was much used. The garden area was a delightful place for us to relax; the little ones had room to play and the frog pond was a big hit; the bird feeders which attracted a variety of wildlife - chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits and especially the birds - was also a big hit with the adults and children alike and we even managed a kayak outing or two (we had brought life jackets but there was an ample supply).
We did venture away from the house too! The children very much enjoyed visits to the parks/playgrounds in Northpoint and Picton, the beach, and pick your own strawberries was a huge success -and eating the fruit even better! Adults also enjoyed visiting wineries and lavender farm; younger adults were excited to find a favourite Newfoundland band playing in the Picton theatre during our stay.
Thank you for facilitating our special family gathering; we did so enjoy this lovely setting."

"We (wife and I, kids aged 7 and 5 and my parents) spent a week on Dempster Island. The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. The views are spectacular, especially sunrises, sunsets and looking at the stars at night from the private dock.
Our kids loved playing on the beach and going for canoe and motorboat rides.
Although the cottage is on an island, Bala is very close and it's easy to get to and from shore with the provided motorboat."

"I would absolutely recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a private, relaxing getaway up North. The cottage was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. The owner was very responsive and made sure that we arrived safely and knew everything that we needed to know in terms of arrival and operating everything at the cottage. It was a great experience all around and we will absolutely be returning!!"

"Our family of 3 went there and loved it.
it is a really interesting cottage at a great location.
first of all the location is fantastic....very close to nature....quiet.....beautiful....close to great hikes in Killarney park.....close to town of Killarney with some good food selections.....
the cottage is vintage....but very well built and maintained.....with lots of quirky interesting things.....lots of art.....great selection of books....we used sauna and whirlpool on several occasions....back porch was great (fully screened to keep out bugs while you sit out in the night)
Bedrooms are good.....but if you are couple that like to sleep together the beds are a bit tight....we were able to fit but it was snug.
Also, if you like to sit out on the dock there are not a lot of chairs from which to choose, so you might want to bring your own.
That said, we loved our time there and plan to return!"
