What makes this Cottage unique
Serene setting and be close to nature.
Great week, great weather. Perfect for family.
We spent last week at the cottage and it was a great one. The cottage has got lots of space, all you need in terms of cooking, cleaning etc...
Sonny was very helpful, and available, greeted us at arrival. The space was ideal for us only a short walk down to the very private beach. Kids played all the time in the very warm water, shallow, and full of surpises (Starfish, clams, crabs, etc...)
Lots of washed up wood to do a nice bond fire at night with marshmallows for the kids... Short distance to the Kings castle park, where there's plenty of games and even very cheap ice cream... Went for a boat tour one day in Montague which was nice.
Would recommend for anyone with kids that wants his little piece of quiet, and lots of space to play!
PS : Only small downside was the mosquitoes, lots of them but with bugspray no worries!
Clean and beautiful cottage
We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was very clean upon arrival. It was well supplied with towels, soap, kitchenware, toilet paper, etc. Everything looked exactly like the photos. Wi-fi worked well. Washer and dryer were perfect. No problems with any of the facilities. Our kids played lawn croquet (a set was left for us) on the huge grassy area. The screened-in front porch was perfect for eating meals without being hounded by bugs.
The beach was a fun place for my boys to look for wildlife. They spend hours catching and releasing creatures including: flounder, crabs, hermit crabs, snails, shrimp, clams, oysters, starfish. Every day was a new adventure for them. It was a bit cold for the adults to spend a lot of time in the water, but my kids were fully immersed in the water for hours! At low tide, the beach extends very far out and you can dig for big clams to eat. The only problem was the number of biting black flies (horseflies?), but that seemed to be a problem in other parts of the island as well.
Advice: don't leave anything on the beach. Even though it's a "private" beach, other people can walk to it and there's an RV park just around the bend on our beach. We left an inflatable boat with oars that got stolen, along with a big metal shovel, water guns and a sun shower. It was our fault for leaving our things overnight near the beach, but that still didn't ruin our vacation. We were sad that these items got stolen, but we still enjoyed our beach time nonetheless.
Tip: walk along the beach, around the bend, past the RV park to King's Castle Provincial Park (15 mins.). It's an excellent park for kids. Multiple play structures, including a wooden fort with lookout tower, 3-story metal climbing structure with slides, statues of fairy tale characters and more. My kids spent the whole afternoon here. The best part is that ice cream is only 75 cents for a regular size scoop in a cup or cone. Amazing deal!
Overall, we were very impressed with Sonny and his helpfulness. He was wonderful and answered all our questions promptly. Sonny went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our stay.
We would recommend this property for other families to enjoy a beach vacation. The water views from the cottage are beautiful and relaxing.
We had a great stay - the cottage is exactly as promised:
- Very well equipped
Really had a great time - will definitely book again
