Lovely location, but cottage has several issues that need to be addressed

  • 2 of 5

We wish that the cottage itself would have been more pleasant for us, because the location is spectacular. We enjoyed many campfires with the gorgeous view of the lake.

However, there were several issues that I communicated to the kind and friendly property owner, but I am also leaving in review so that future guests can verify them as being addressed before they also pay to stay here. 1) There was a leak above the fireplace. 2) The oven did not work (light comes on but no heat). 3) There was a critter getting inside somehow. We never saw it, but heard it several times in the evening and overnight. At first we thought it could be a mouse but it sounded more like when our cat runs around. Whatever it was also chewed a large hole through two rubbery/plastic lids on containers that were in the kitchen and knocked some books off of the side table. Definitely not a mouse. 4) Finally, not sure if this is related to the critter issue, but there was a rather unfavorable odor in pockets around the cottage, strongest by far in the entire kitchen area but occasionally we noticed it in the bathroom, too. I can best describe it as smelling like wet dog. I am sensitive to odors but my husband is not, and even he was overwhelmed by it and considered getting a hotel instead.

I wish I could have left a glowing review, but that would simply not be fair to future guests, because overall, we would not recommend staying here unless the owner can confirm that these issues have been addressed.

Owner's Response: Erin, I really appreciated you letting me know about the issues with the cottage last year. If I do not know about any issues, I can not fix them. Since your stay last year in September we have addressed the issues you mentioned. 1) The leak has been repaired at the location mentioned. 2) We have purchased a new stove. 3) Not sure who let the critter in and when, but there is no longer any critter in the cottage. 4) The odor must have been that critter and possibly the old stove. The critter is gone and the stove has been replaced! Again, I do appreciate your concerns and letting me know about these issues so I could address them.

Happily unplugged

  • 4 of 5

Sounds of the lake and quiet relaxation. Stairs to beach a bit disconcerting but the water was great. Almost no cell coverage so I wish there had been a landline for emergencies (we had a minor pet crisis, but Tara Animal hospital was AWESOME). Easy driving distance to Rudy's and the West Side in FairHaven. Loved my stay.

Cozy cottage on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Very peaceful with beautiful views a sort ride to Fair Haven (breakfast at Hardware Cafe, sunset walk on the jetties) and my fave, Ontario orchard market. Kitchen had all necessities, beds wre comfortable. Sunsets magnificent. I am worried about the stairs to the beach, they are steep and get beaten up by the waves during a storm. They could be hazardous for small kids or elderly people. We want to return!
