Great time in a beautiful location!
We had a group of six adults from Alberta who booked this place for the last week of April (Esso Cup Gold) and had a great time! The owner was easy to contact and to deal with,, and even brought us a brand new BBQ after I had mentioned it to him.. great service! All you have to do is ask and the owner was very good at accommodating and getting back to us through email and messaging. The road in is very tricky to find the first time, but once there, you will find it easy after that... try to get there in the daylight,, lol. Only thing missing is a satellite dish or a Wi-Fi hotspot in order to watch some sports channels, as the TV 3-channels is very dated.. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would come back to this location in the future!
Thanks so much for the review. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and congratulations on winning the Golden Cup.
Thanks for the feedback on the WiFi. Our family felt that when we go to the cottage, we want to enjoy being together, enjoy the amazing nature and minimize TV and internet distractions. I am looking into having WiFi soon because this is the trend now.
We had a great time at this cottage. We needed a time away from all the stress of the city and this was a perfect place. The cottage was clean and tidy. The space is much larger than what we expected and the fireplace was great to have.
We really enjoyed the spectacular view from the great room and we were lucky with the weather. My 2 teenagers really loved it. They spent a lot of time playing table tennis in the basement then going out for hikes.
We really enjoyed dinning out in Mahone Bay and the restaurant was very good.
We were delighted that Joe the owner allowed us to check in early and we enjoyed every minute in this beautiful cottage. We wish we stayed longer but we will be back this summer.
Thank you for the review. We are looking forward to your next visit.
Mold, Dirt, Difficult Owner - Renter Beware
We arrived to find the floor was dirty, bug layer on the window sills, dirty towels in the bathrooms, food spills in the fridge & a toaster oven that was truly a fire hazard. There was a cleaning list MULTIPLE PAGES long for renters to complete before they leave - this is not as advertised!
Then we noticed mold on the baseboard & wall beside & behind the bed in the basement. I called Joe (owner) to tell him about the musty smell in the basement & mold. HE ALREADY KNEW! He said it was supposed to be scraped, disinfected & painted – he said "just close the door". My husband has done construction & to treat mold you need to remove all impacted baseboard & drywall.
We then found sub pump room was recently dry walled, more mold by the futon bed & basement bathroom. Instead of helping, Joe accused us of having too many guests. We had 8 adults, one baby & one 2yr old. I asked for a bed, maid to reclean & Joe to come see the condition of the home. Joe said that he would get a bed & send the maid to clean again. Joe had not been at the property for 2 or 3 weeks. That night we had a futon mattress & air mattress and 2 people slept on the family room floor.
The next day after touring we came back to dirty floors, dirty towels & a note that the maid cleaned the toaster oven & window sills but would not clean the rest! Most of all NO BED!
I called Joe who again complained we had too many people due to the baby & toddler. On VRBO people openly talk of 10 adults at this property! Joe said we could use a springy fold up single bed that would be worse than the floor. He offered reimbursing 2 nights if we left immediately but in high season it was impossible for our group to find different accommodations.
The basement was COMPLETELY unusable due to mold making things very cramped for our group on the main floor. A few days after we left Joe called to ensure I didn’t share our bad experience on VRBO. He said he fired the maid & “fixed” the mold. Hide the mold is more likely due to the limited time he had to fix it.
The changes were irrelevant for my family as he did not act when we needed him to. He reimbursed us 7/8s the cost. I suggested increasing our the amount and he suddenly accused us a breaking a paddle. RIDICULOUS! With a different owner, maid & proper mgt the home would be good - but even if dirt and mold are gone you'd better pray you don't need help during your stay with this owner!
Dishonest and Difficult Renters. Owners beware.
it is unfortunate that these people who stayed 3 nights put all their energy in trying to find issues to knock down the price rather than enjoying the beautiful property similar to the previous and following renters.
I ran out of options with these renters. I offered them to leave with a full refund, I sent them a cleaner but they refused
to meet with her and then offered them additional sleeping beds to accommodate 8 people on the main floor. None of these were good enough.
1- They checked in at 3 pm and they never called me about any concerns until after 11 pm when I was asleep. If these were issued identified, they should have called right away.
2- Despite the fact that we have a cleaner who comes to clean in between renters, we expect renters to leave the place in a reasonable shape. They left the place quite dirty.
3-They lied about the number of people. The reservation said no children and listed 8 people but My manager has the impression that were 12 people and they confirmed 2 children contrary the the reservation.
4- They broke the Walker Bay Paddle ($200 online), the fishing rod was missing when they left.
5- Their concern was about the basement but they requested from the cleaner (who came the next day) to change the beds that they already used and we do not provide daily cleaning services.
-The basement had
some flies on the windows but because of the nature of the place, sometimes flies come. This is an amazing beautiful piece of pure nature and couple of flies never mad anyone else panic. One of the basement baseboards had a small Piece of mold. I honestly thought the manager took care of it but she did not so I gave them a refund based on that.
I went my self with a crew and fixed that issue immediately after they left. It was a very minor issue but the crew took care of it.
-I gave them a cot, an inflatable bed, another single bed but none of these were satisfactory.
-I gave them $200 refund based on 7 people can sleep upstairs (that is absolutely beautiful).
- We enjoy this cottage so much and the building is beautiful, the lake is one of the best in Canda, the River is a paradise. People always have a great time unless they really want to find things to make them miserable and annoyed. We really cannot do anything about these few cases.
We hope that this renter takes a closer look at the lens that they view life with.
Rental is awesome; great kitchen, tons of indoor space, deck space, lake, boats, fire.. perfect!
Rental property was awesome. There is lots of room indoors, we slept 10 people pretty comfortably, and had tons of seating even when we were rained in. Kitchen is big enough to cook for a crowd, and there is a (admittedly pretty grimy) BBQ, which we used a lot.
Lake is super nice, with some boats to go exploring on. There is no dock. Neighbors are not super close, we certainly never worried about our noise levels.
Communication with the owner was easy (we used the VRBO app), he responded quickly and getting in and out of the rental was a piece of pie.
The only complaint I have is that it was a little dirty when we arrived. I suspect the previous guests had left a huge mess and the cleaner didn't have time to properly clean up in time (given she only had 3 hours). On that basis I could not give 5 stars, but other than that, couldn't recommend this rental enough!
The cottage was very beautiful. The view from the front room was spectacular! There is also two decks. It is a very spacious cottage, great for family that like to have their space. There is also a beautiful lake, which would be wonderful for summer swimming. Comes with all needed utilities and essentials.
I am delighted you enjoyed our little paradise. Thanks for your comments.
Thank you Angela for your comments.
We hope to see you again.
