We loved the charm , setting and great condition of the Property. We has some leoely family meals in the lovely dining room.
The house was beautiful
It was well equipped and the owner met us there and explained to us where everything was and how they worked.
The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed
The property is in a lovely area. We enjoyed walking to the water through the 'adventure trail'. The cottage is a short distance from wonderful beaches. It was great to explore the immediate area, as well as journey to nearby towns. Rainer and Lawrie were very kind and welcoming, they even provided treats for our dog.
We enjoyed having Alana and family and friends at Turtle Crossing Cottage.
They thoroughly enjoyed the Cottage and the large property.
They took very well care of the Cottage and left everything nice and clean.
Love to see them coming back!

Clean, and neat with everything you need.
Our family of 4 really enjoyed the large backyard and all the outdoor athetic equipment
(badmington, soccer, etc). My 9 & 11 year old were excited to explore the back woods and the path to the lake. At the time of our stay, the path was flooded but it looks to be a great activity when dry. The house was comfortable with all that was needed. The hosts were super hospitable. They welcomed us at the cottage to point out all the conveniences in the rental. Short drive or bike ride to the beautiful Sandbanks Provincial Park.
We loved our week af Turtle Crossing this summer! A lot of space and great amenities nearby.
We were two couples and a dog staying at Turtle Crossing for a week in July. The cottage was clean and the hosts were there to greet us and inform us about activities nearby. The cottage held so many games and activities to do onsite and it was an excellent location for us to go on daily trips around the county. We really appreciated the free use of the Sandbanks Provincial Pass as we spent many afternoons driving the 8 minutes down the road to the beach. We loved the large area out back of the cottage to BBQ dinners and relax around the campfire. Thank you for your hospitality, Rainer and Lawrie!
Dear Jonathan and family, we surely enjoyed meeting and hosting you at Turtle Crossing Cottage.We thank you for taking such good care of the house and property! We look forward to having you come back and stay again with us!
