We have been coming to this cottage for a few years, it never disappoints. Perfect water and weather

  • 5 of 5

If I had to give any feedback I would suggest taking care of the grass on the front and back. The grass/weed growth at the back of the cottage was the longest we have ever seen especially around the steps onto the back deck, off the beach. We pulled some of the weeds out ourselves. The front of the cottage was also very long. It would definitely look nicer and not so unkept.

Thanks.

Wonderful time had by all!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful accommodations. Gorgeous view. Loved the serenity of the island. People were very friendly and welcoming.

Only negative that I found was the manager information was in need of major updating on Home Away.

Beautiful cottage! Inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the long weekend and it was glorious! Beautiful inside and out and the water was so clear for quite a fair distant out. :) Everyone on the island was super friendly too! My children and I loved it! Thank you!

Overall a very nice weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Overall the cottage suited our purpose and we'd consider renting again. There were a couple of small issues that were resolved quickly by the management company who was just a phone call away. We found no beach chairs, but there was a picnic table that suited us fine. The property is close to the water, so listening to the waves beat up the shore at night was definitely a highlight! The property could have used a good cleaning before our arrival (dead bugs, dusty, coffee grounds in the coffee maker, etc) even though the property was used just the prior weekend, but everything that we needed was there and working. Thanks!

Nice place but not clean

  • 2 of 5

The place is well located , the cottage could have been nice but it was not clean at all. Kitchen was dirty ... I had to clean the cabinets, same for fridge and oven. Bathrooms was full of hairs and dirty. Linen was stained. Lots of spiders in the cottage and lot if horseflies outside.

Beach is beautiful, White sand, clear water, no algae, hot water. Wild Turkeys were seen everyday around the house.

Its à Nice place but the house cleaning needs to be improve.

Car: recommended

The Township of Pelee is made up of nine islands in Lake Erie and is the most southern point in Canada. Pelee Island is the largest of the islands and is situated at the Canada/USA boundary between Sandusky, Ohio and Windsor/Essex County, Ontario.

Pelee is a serenely beautiful area with miles of lovely beaches, natural areas that are unsurpassed, and the fishing is superb. When you visit Pelee you will be limited only by your imagination.
