Why Virginia Ridley chose Kincardine
This property is great for an economical getaway either with friends or with the kids. We are fairly relaxed owners, and hope that you enjoy our cottage as much as we do. There is so much nearby that you have the best of both worlds - a cottage getaway and only minutes from town.

Beach is Divine
Overall this cottage is a decent place to stay, tidy, but still very much a cottage. The access to the beach is hands down the best part. Our group found it to be a little bit too "public" with the neighbourhood dog roaming (friendly enough, but doesn't like other dogs), one neighbour had a chainsaw and wood chipper going, there was weed whipping somewhere else near by, and a car alarm was going off all at the same time while we were trying to enjoy some appetizers at the picnic table--we had to laugh about it. The cottage is nice enough with good space and a well-stocked kitchen. There is a reverse osmosis system, which is awesome for not having to haul in water. Loved the open-concept main area to prepare dinner while socializing. The BBQ is still in need of an upgrade--rusty grills and uneven heat from the burner. The bathroom was functional enough, though the hot water was a little inconsistent--fine because we had a warm weekend, but not idea once it gets chilly. It would have been nice to know about the walls not reaching the ceiling before getting there--I completely understand why it works for when the wood stove is used for heating, but you can here absolutely EVERYTHING within the cottage. Overall, the space worked for what we needed and we were grateful to be allowed to have the pups with us--they too loved the beach!
Great family oriented cottage!!
This was our second year staying at this cottage. It is a wonderful large property with plenty of privacy and room for the kids to play. The kids loved kayaking and swimming. The beautiful sunsets on Lake Huron did not disappoint us again this year!!! Close to Kincardine and local amenities. All had a wonderful holiday!!!
Great location and outdoor charm.
Loved the location so close to a almost private beach area and close to Kincardine. The house was comfortable and the kids loved the treehouse and trampoline. Quiet area, we grilled outside and had campfires and had a great time. Only downside to the house was the lack of privacy with wall that stop before hitting the ceiling and no door on kids room. You could hear everything from every room, so definitely a place for families or friends who know each other really well. Otherwise great stay! Thank you.
Adorable setting - temp at night
Adorable atmosphere. Exactly the type of cottage you want to unwind and unplug. Amazing movie collection and tons of firewood for campfires. Only concern was the temperature at night. It got verrrry cold and we were uncomfortable with using the wood stove. Other than that lovely!
Comfy and relaxing
We had a fantastic vacation at 4 Verna Lane. Was nice and quiet yet really close to town. The fridge was a bit small & The BBQ is in need of new grills. The yard is a great size and lots of room for the kids to roam around and is pretty close to the beach. They loved the trampoline and the tree house. The bugs were at a minimum. The cottage itself is quite comfortable yet clean and tidy. The movie selection was vast. The new flooring was super easy to keep swept up. We would book it again!
We're glad you enjoyed your stay!
We would welcome you back anytime.
Great cottage on a beautiful lake
Our stay at the cottage was awesome; it has the comfort of home but rustic enough to be able to disconnect and enjoy a restful and relaxing getaway. Having a good selection of games and movies was great entertainment in the evening and for a rainy day. Fresh clean bedding and blankets were provided and the cottage was well stocked with ameneties that you would probably pack yourself...very thoughful of the owners to have such things as band aids , Q-tips etc on hand. Loving our BBQ's we were a bit disappointed in the condition (very rusty grill) and opted not to use it. Our 2 dogs were welcome which was so appreciated knowing that most cottage owners do not allow pets, the short walk to the beach was nice and there were no issues having the doggies off leash and in the water. The outdoor hand shower on the front deck is an absolute brilliant idea!!! All in all our stay was amazing and we would go back and stay longer in a minute:):)
Thank you Virginia for sharing your wonderful cottage.
We are glad you enjoyed yourself! I will get that grill figured out for next year - not sure how it rusted so fast (was new last season!)
WE would welcome you back anytime.
