Happy times at the cottage

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage is in a great shape and conveniently located in a quiet area but close to the highway and access via ferry to the area of wineries, cideries, breweries, nature walks and beaches of Sandbanks.

An important added bonus was that owners/managers were closeby and immediately available to address our needs and answer every question.

The cottage is large to provide privacy to our 3 families staying there.

Highly recommend!

Big Clean Cottage with Large property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for one week and really enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately the water level was really high and we were not able to use the dock. Not the cottages fault though. This cottage is very close to the ferry which takes you to Picton. Fishing was great!!! The cottage was Very clean when we got there. Lots of space to play.

Lovely lakefront property with a great deck and spacious home!

  • 4 of 5

My spouse, kid and I spent a happy nine days at this beautiful property. When cousins from Nova Scotia decided to visit at the last minute, along with the in-laws, there was plenty of room for meals and card games, and there were enough beds for all. When it was the three of us, we enjoyed the BBQ, large deck and well-equipped kitchen. The lakefront and firepit were great features!

We used the Glenora Ferry almost daily and had a fabulous dinner at "The Inn" next to the Lake on the Mountain... and Sandbanks was always a treat (get there early on summer wkds).

Inside, the modern amenities of the cottage were a real plus -- and outside, the second-floor deck was the best spot for relaxing, and first-floor walk-out made for easy access to the backyard and water. The owner/property manager is attentive and friendly.

We definitely recommend the Henderson Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 girls ventured to the Henderson Retreat for a bachelorette party! Had a fabulous time. Enjoyed our time at the clean and welcoming home on a beautiful property! We also visited the Drake Devonshire for brunch and 4 local wineries just across the Glenora Ferry! Very friendly and accommodating property owner/manager! Would definitely reccommend!

Great Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at your beautiful cottage this past weekend and I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated our stay, and for your thoughtfulness given the tornado warning Saturday night. I would highly recommend your cottage to any friends & family. It was true to the photos and very accommodating (specifically the garbage arrangement and recycling as this helped facilitate a large group of girls). Thank you again for the beautiful stay! :)

Total Disappointment

  • 1 of 5

It is unfortunate to say that this cottage was a total let down for us. We had a weekend planned for the ladies with lots of delicious food on the menu. The major issue was that neither the oven, nor BBQ worked well.

Firstly one of the burners on the stove top was burn out and labelled as such on the oven, but not mentioned in the listing.

Secondly, although the oven worked, it did not seem to heat up to the temperature that it said it was at. We had a Sheppard’s pie that took 5 hours to cook at 450 degrees C and a quiche that took 1.5 hours to cook at the same temperature.

Lastly, the biggest disappointment was that the BBQ also did not heat up properly either. We checked that the propane was full and made sure the gas was on. We had a steak dinner planned for 9 people, which was essentially ruined. We contacted the owner, who said she would email the neighbour to come by once she got home, but by that point the dinner was already ruined.

When we contacted the owner again regarding the state of the cooking appliances, she said that she would rectify this in future by leaving instruction. This was unsatisfactory and insulting to hear that she thought that 9 people could not figure out how to work an oven or BBQ.

The cottage itself was fine, but definitely not what we expected and we felt that we were overcharged in the end.
