  • Great beach/lake for families

    "We just returned from a week at this cottage on Lake Farlain. It was a low-key family vacation with our 2-year-old twins and their grandparents, though we did have a few additional family members stay a couple of nights at a time. For the most part, we all fit comfortably on the upper/main level of the cottage in the 3 spacious bedrooms, updated bathroom, living room and kitchen areas. However, the nights that we did have additional guests, we were required to use the fourth bedroom located on the lower level of the cottage. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with the beach front and lake. It was much better than I had even anticipated. The lake is relatively small, though large enough for power boating, waterskiing, and jet skis. Very calm and shallow, sandy water leading to deep enough water to swim at the end of the dock. Our toddlers absolutely loved playing in the sand and wading in and out of the water without us having to be hypervigilant. The property the cottage is on is fairly large and private as well with no immediate neighbours to one side and several cottages fairly well spaced out to the opposite side. The cottage came equipped with many staples that could be needed, like cleaning supplies, toys and games, lots of towels, and most everything you would need for cooking in the kitchen. The cleaner had done an immaculate job prior to our arrival as well. I had no complaints about the main level of the cottage at all! However, the main problem we experienced was with the basement/4th bedroom area. It appeared fine, but smelled and felt damp right off the bat. However, when we did have a few extra bodies visiting at night, we quickly learned that there is a major earwig/bug problem in the basement that came out at night. They were everywhere... coming out of the ceiling tiles and lights above the bed and throughout the basement! Our guests actually moved up to the living area floor their first night and set up their tent outside on the second night because that was preferable to the "fourth bedroom". We are all well experienced with spending time up north and cottaging, and recognize there are always bugs to a certain extent, but this was well above and beyond anything we have ever experienced! I really feel this cottage should be advertised as only a 3-bedroom and priced accordingly for that reason! Other than that, we had a fantastic trip! I would replace steps from the deck to yard as they are steep and dangerous though."

  • Perfect for our weekend in Canada!

    "Cabernet House was perfect spot for our family weekend in Niagara-on-the-lake. The house is very clean, well equipped, and quite comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised that the rooms were all larger than they appear in photos. Our party of 8 had plenty of space in which to hang out. Although, we didn't stay in too much as the town is so lovely with so much to do! I especially appreciated the conveneience of allowing our two night stay (but wish I could have stayed longer!). This property is a great rental value, given the easy access to shops, restaurants, parks and bike trails, in addition to just being a nice, well-kept property. I also loved that this house came stocked with so many basics like toilet paper and dishwasher detergent - that saved us a trip to the local grocery store (as we ate dinner out for every meal). I would definitely recommend this rental to my friends and family! *one small warning - be careful of the varying floor levels downstairs. I tripped once or twice in the doorway to the kitchen/back bedroom area, but eventually we all got accustomed to it and didn't have any problems. Older/renovated houses are just like that sometimes (it's kind of charming I think)."
