Overview

About the property

For more reviews check us out on AirBNB

'A Loft in the Woods' is nestled off of Hwy 21 on the Grand Bend side of the Pinery Provincial park entrance, across from Rus-Ton campground. We are in a central area close to shopping, a museum, weekly flea markets and fruit and vegetable stands. There are 5 different beaches to visit with 20 minutes. If you enjoy spending the day at the beach but would like to sleep where it's quiet, this is the place for you. Perfect for bird watchers or hikers, with newly paved trails for biking. Very clean. The loft has a full kitchen with a dishwasher and bathroom with tub, both bedrooms have queen beds, wifi, BBQ and private fire pit. Newly renovated in 2014. Linens and towels provided.

It's one of those hidden gem kind of places that you just never want to leave. Quiet, serene and relaxing, yet close enough to the action if you crave a good pub and some live music. Many properties for rent in this area are all bunched together with other rentals. If you rent downtown grand bend or water front you pay more, and run the risk of spending your vacation dealing with excessive noise from drunken parties, dogs in unfamiliar surroundings and barking all night or just obnoxious groups of people you can't avoid. We are the only rental in this area, so the only noise is your own and nights are quiet and serene. No one else's loud music, no drunk and disorderly types wandering around at all hours and no barking dogs. It is called Loft in the woods because it is a 'Loft'. It is a completely separate upper living space with it's own parking, entrance, outside yard and fire pit area. It is a space all it's own with nothing shared no houses beside or behind, only woods. By which of course we mean trees, or forest. If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an email.

Why Kevin Dale chose Ontario

It is central to so many beaches and interesting activities. Quiet and private with nothing shared.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is right close to all the action. Many properties for rent in this area are all bunched together with other rentals. If you rent downtown grand bend or water front you pay more, and run the risk of spending your vacation dealing with excessive noise from drunken parties, dogs in unfamiliar surroundings and barking all night or just obnoxious groups of people you can't avoid. We are the only rental in this area, so nights are quiet and serene. No loud music, no drunk and disorderly types, not even a barking dog. It's much nicer to visit the hot spots when you feel like some action, and leave when you want quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The loft is located in the middle of the wood. It is very authentic and well decorated. The whole interior is very clean and looks like brand new. We found more than we expected (BBQ, Fireplace, great coffee maker and full kitchen, even board games and books!). Every single window offers an interesting view to the surrounding wood. The bedrooms and the bathroom are very comfortable and clean. As the rest of the loft. This is a great place to stay with family or friends or even alone if you're in need of inspiration! We just loved it an highly recommend it!

Great time away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Loft in the Woods. Kevin was very helpful and quick to reply to questions prior to our stay. A great place for a girls, guys or couples weekend away. Everything was in working order and had the basics we needed for our stay. We plan to come back again!

Thanks!

Rustic, clean, cottage

  • 4 of 5

We rented this cottage for an evening as we had some business in a nearby town. This was a much nicer alternative to a motel. Clean and cozy, nice beds and bed linens and fully equipped kitchen and BBQ to prepare a nice dinner and breakfast. Kevin was very accommodating, helpful and responsive. My only "comment" was that I was grateful we brought our own lawn chairs.. There were a couple there but they were in poor condition and likely not too safe. Apart from that, it was perfect for our needs and I would most definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: One of the four chairs was damaged by a previous guest the week of her visit. The week of the Good Friday long weekend...........when nothing is open. We are not in the habit of leaving things broken or in poor condition. Guests come and go sometimes within hours of each other, and the reality is that sometimes things break and there isn't enough time to replace them before the next guest arrives. We have since replaced the outdoor chairs as we would anything that is broken. We appreciate guests that communicate with us. What good is it if I find out something was a problem in a review.....after you have left? If something is bothering you, send me a message. I just might be able to help. Who knows, good communication may just save me from another 3 star review for not having an AM radio, lol.

Peaceful serene getaway

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations exactly as pictured. Immaculately clean and well supplied. This is a perfect escape from the city that is easy to get to. A perfect spot to relax, sleep, read and unwind. Grand Bend is 5 min down the street for shops, restaurants, beaches etc. Provincial park and hiking trails nearby. We will be back!

Was everything as advertised. Clean, quiet, and located in forested environment off the beaten path

  • 3 of 5

Nice quiet forested area with most of the amenities provided. An AM-FM radio and functional TV (the one provided did not work) would have been appreciated though. Located quite close to many of the local attractions but far enough away to remain rustic quality. Will most certainly consider return visit next year......

Clean, quiet and great location.

  • 4 of 5

We were very relieved when we arrived how clean the property was. It's updated and modern and had everything you needed. Traveling with our two year old daughter the cottage was perfect for the three of us. We were provided with information about beaches and flea markets and took advantage of both. We would definitely book again. The cottage is located very close to the pinery and a quick drive into Grand Bend to take advantage of shops and restaurants.
