Nice stay in a great location
We loved the location -- wooded area, close to the beach, and you can bike or walk pretty much everywhere. Margot is very responsive, communication is great, and check in process is easy. The house is very spacious, and the kitchen is well stocked. In terms of furniture, bathrooms, and appliances, you get exactly what you are paying for. Given the price (which very reasonable), do not expect a newly remodeled place with new appliances. That said, what the house offers was enough for our purposes. My only real concern is cleanness. First, I discovered bundles of dust under the bed in the master bedroom. And second, the renters are responsible for washing and drying the towels. I wish I knew about this in advance, so we would bring our own towels. I am not sure that I completely trust the previous renters (who need to pack and check out before noon) to do a thorough job of washing the towels. All that said, we had a lovely stay, and I would come back without hesitation.
Vladimir I am so happy to hear that your family enjoyed their stay at our cottage.
I would like to address your concerns about cleanliness. My husband and I do all the cleaning between renters and we are extremely thorough. It is of utmost importance to us that our guests check in to a spotless cottage. This is why we do not trust the cleaning to anyone else. If you found dust under the bed that is a very unusual occurrence.
As far as the towels are concerned I always check them to make sure they have been laundered by the previous guests and if there is any doubt I wash them again myself.
Our Renters are only required to launder the towels they use, wash the dishes and put the garbage in the outside bins before checking out. This is laid out clearly in our Welcome Package that is sent to renters a month before their stay.
We wash all the bed linens and remake the beds along with thoroughly vacuuming, washing floors, cleaning bathrooms and the kitchen . We ask renters to wash the towels as it is difficult in the four hours between renters to launder all those linens along with cleaning thoroughly.
Our cottage is furnished for families who want to relax and enjoy a beach vacation. The furniture is comfortable and quaint. The layout allows for gatherings of many people but also allows for separation of groups to visit in one area and play or watch TV in another area. Our guests do not need to worry about damaging expensive high end furnishings and finishes. It is a cottage after all and our target market is families.
I hope that you will return again as so many of our previous renters do.
Thank you for your feedback Margot
We loved our stay at the cottage! It was a great space that allowed my family to hang out together or spend time alone to read or watch TV. It was amazing because the kids spent most of their time outside riding bikes or swimming- and not on their devices. The beach is just a short walk from the cottage so we went there a couple of times each day. I especially enjoyed having coffee on the front patio and listening to the waves. The owner Margot was very welcoming and answered all of my questions promptly. The cottage overall was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed!
Southcott Pines Cottage
This is the 2nd summer renting this cottage. I like the location (short walk to the beach) short drive to town amenities. Cottage is well laid out, large with well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and lots of family space. Sandy beach is lovely!
We were happy to have your family back again this summer Barbara. We hope to see you again next year. Thank you for your kind review. Margot Scott
Grand Bend summer
Second year renting this property. It suits our extended family to a tee. Well equipped with everything you will need. Close to a beautiful private sand beach. Amazing sunsets over Lake Huron. The property has great front lawn where we were able to play great family games. (Washer toss, Badminton, and Kan-Jam) it is also close to groceries, beer store and Liquor store.
Thanks Randy we were happy that your family returned again this summer. Have a great year and please come back again. Margot Scott
