- Dining room seating for three only

- No dishwasher
All in all a great place in a beautiful setting. Just needs a few tweaks to be perfect.
2nd floor of a home, so not completely private:
The apt. has a separate outside entrance with a locked door at the the bottom of the stairs (direct to the outside) and a locked door at the top of the stairs (entrance to the unit) both doors locks use the same key. No one else can enter this unit. It is completely secure and the 2nd floor offers panaramic view of the Northumberland Strait. It is very quiet except for the birds in the morning. The rabbits, and the deer are quiet
New rental still working out the kinks:
We will always be working out the kinks, that is the nature of the business. We have a book where we ask our guests to leave a comment, it is very helpful, Mr. Lanigan's comments did not reflect these concerns
Not a lot of comfy seating for raining days:
We have a rocking chair, a lazy boy type chair and a chesterfield, We thought this was ok when using the internet and watching the sat tv
Gets hot, so needs a fan
We have a cool breeze from the Northumberland Strait and we supply a fan to help
Dinning room seating for three:only
We have since put in a new larger table with four chairs
Apartment with Fantastic View
Fantastic view. More windows near the kitchen table would be nice to take advantage of the view.Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Clean and tidy space. Close to amenities.Perhaps should mention stairs in the ad , as there are quite a few to reach the second floor. No mention of apartment being upstairs .
Amazing view with great hosts!
The property is absolutely stunning! Art was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. He went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. The house Has access to a private beach and there is a beautiful deck you can sit on that overlooks the ocean. We wish we had stayed longer! I would highly recommend staying here.
This was a very nice young couple.,very quiet. They left the unit as they found it, very clean. We would love to have them back anytime.
