To be clear, this is not luxury accommodation, but it was just perfect for us! The cottage was clean, had all the basic utensils, a good sized bathroom and a flow worthy shower-head! Cannot say enough about Donna, who oversees the property and Gordon who owns it, they are two wonderful people who will do anything for you. The cottage... More

Got our directions over the phone with lots of detail and local color. Arrived to find a really nice cabin to accommodate 2 adults and our 3 dogs. Housekeeping so we were able to cook there as well. After dinner the owner, Gordon, took our whole entourage on a tour of the area in his car. Great place. We will... More

Loved the cottage, enough beds for three adults - one double and two twins in a two-bedroom unit. The fridge was full size and the bathroom was big. The location is lovely - very close to the river and a trail for ATVs or bikes, possibly walking? Would definitely stay again, everything was clean. This is a great place to... More

The cottages are basic but well planned. There is a kitchen, eating area, 1 or 2 bedrooms and a washroom. The kitchen has all the basics - frig, stove, microwave, kettle and toaster along with the tableware for 4 and basic items for food prep and cooking. There is a BBQ outside on the covered verandah. We prefer cottage #6... More

No complaints here. I'm giving it a 4 out of 5 based on what it is, not what it could be. It's not trying to be remarkable. It's not trying to cater to those who need stylish furnishings or extras. It's simple and has everything you actually need at a perfectly decent price. It's comfortable. It's has an unpretentious charm... More

We try to come annually to Margaree from the USA. Full disclosure requires saying we have found we are distantly related to Mr. Cranton, but then everyone seems related in Brigadoon,I mean Margaree. These cabins are clean and comfortable with satellite TV. I love to sit on the porch with coffee and blueberry scones. The Margaree flows by across a... More

We stayed in the one bedroom cottage while in Margaree for a wedding. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean and nicely appointed out the cottage was. It was in a private location on the river and it was central to everything in the Margaree area. The owner is a very nice gentleman. I don't know if you could find... More
