We had a great relaxing time enjoying the beautiful view around a roaring fire in the fire pit. The cow smell every night was not pleasant but it came and left fairly quickly. It was not a game changer. We loved staying in the little cottage and found the beds very comfortable.
The view is unbeatable. Totally gorgeous all the time.
The cabin is clean and accurately described in the listing.
The beach is rocky, as is the lake, so bring water shoes!
Even in July, the cabin was cool and comfortable. No ACs in the cabin, but we wouldn't have used them even if there were any. We did use fans just to pull in some extra cool breezes, since we love cold for sleeping.
Kitchen and bathroom were well equipped.
Beds were comfortable and clean.
Overall BEAUTIFUL location!
Petit chalet romantique
Tres propre. La vue sur le lac est magnifique.
Quelques articles/meubles desuets a changer.
Nothing could beat our morning sunrises
We loved the location and the house was very clean and well-equipped. The check-in/out process was very simple and the rates were comparable to the area.<br />
Some notes:<br />
The driveway is a bit steep, very narrow, and rocky. We had SUVs and most of us are pretty nimble getting in/out of our vehicles, but it wasn't the easiest especially the one time we had to run out at dark. If you have any less than agile family members you may want to take that into consideration.<br />
Other reviewers have commented on the cow smell. Yes, it is pretty bad at times and we went during a cool weekend. The owners can't do anything about that, though.<br />
We planned showers/dishes/hot water usage well due to the small hot water heater and didn't run into issues. It is something to plan for with longer stays, though. The bathroom is very small, but this is a camp/cabin. Some of us with longer legs/curvier bodies simply side-saddled the toilet and just accepted that the shower was going to be a challenge. Shave those legs before you get there if you care about that sort of thing. :)<br />
I just can't say enough about the view we woke up to every morning. It was so peaceful to hear the waves lapping along the shore. If you are OK with a true camp/cabin then I recommend this location.<br />
We appreciate the guests feedback. Our local staff has since replaced the hot water heater with a larger one for guest satisfaction.
Cute little cottage on the lake
Spectacular view. Quiet, relaxing.<br />
Only drawback was the cow smell when the wind blows toward as opposed to off the lake.
Perfect little lodge for our family!
We had a great time at Pearl Bay, the view vas just amazing! The lodge is old but very well maintained, our only criticism would be the smell of mothball when we arrived. We had a great time there, and we had the chance to meet some people that rented the lodge about 60 years ago!! It felt like being in an old classic, we had a wonderful time there and I would recommend it for any family looking for a quiet and close vacation together.
