“Ok....Nothing Special”
Reviewed 23 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The accommodation itself was of a good size. Upon arrival the inside appeared clean and the facilities were good.

The inside of the freezer was disgusting and had clearly not been cleaned from the previous occupant.

The BBQ and Decking furniture too was filthy.

Given the numerous references the the cleaning list to be done on departure I would have thought that the areas mentioned would have been cleaner.

The oven too wasn't particularly clean as the owner would have wanted.

What made me laugh was that the owner left us a guest review of 4 out of 5 for cleanliness.

Location was good, shame we weren't warned about the black flies, kind of spoiled the couple of days we had.

The pontoon area was nice.

The Bunk Beds are too noisy to sleep on, as soon as you move they creak like mad.

Wouldn't stay here again.

I’m so sorry to hear about your experience with us. I’m pleasantly surprised that the first time you’ve mentioned any issues during your stay is after I rated you a 4 our 5 for cleanliness. You stayed at our cottage from May 30 – June 1, and it wasn’t until your departure date that you actually contacted me. You contacted me because you could not locate the landfill pass, even in that correspondence there was no mention of any issues during your stay. It is not until after my host review you experienced any issues during your stay.

The rating 4 out 5 was given because the cleaning list provided was not completed in its entirety. Dishes were left in the dishwasher, which is noted on the cleaning list that they need to been returned to the cupboards. In addition, the floors needed to be swept and mopped as they were not cleaned properly. Seeing as these items were not completed on the cleaning list, I could have charged you $125 for the additional cleaning that was required after your stay, but choose not to charge you. Aside from those items, I feel a 4 out of 5 rating is justified. All other ratings I gave you were 5 out of 5.

This is a first complaint I’ve ever received about the bunkbeds making a noise. The bunkbeds are handmade and in fact our previous guests love the fact they are sturdy and can accommodate adults because of the custom extra long single and double mattresses on them.

Unfortunately, the time of season you arrived is black fly season. You can blame us for not informing you that it is black fly season, but travelers also need to shoulder some of that responsibility to research the areas they travel. I can compare that to travelling during hurricane season and blaming the hotel a hurricane happened during your stay.

The patio furniture and deck are exposed to the outdoor eliminates which would explain for the accumulation of debris between renters. Insects, leaves, fallen branches and tree pollen can accumulate and especially with our raining season appears that more debris than normal has fallen from the trees.

Prior to your arrival, I personally inspected the cottage on May 22, both inside and out and they were clean. The oven was inspected on May 22 and the condition was fine as it was previously cleaned on May 4 using the self cleaning feature. If the outdoor patio furniture and deck was left filthy, then I apologize. We do not run our cottage as a resort, nor do we have staff 24/7 to maintain the premises 24/7. Having staff 24/7 would result in higher costs to our guests, and we would rather keep our costs low so more families have the opportunity to enjoy the cottage.

We wish you all the best.

“Amazing Cottage situated on a quiet Lake!”
Reviewed 20 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed here for a week in September 2016 and loved every minute of this much needed, relaxing get away. The cottage itself was huge and very clean. Located on a quiet lake, we spent time down on the dock, swimming, paddling and canoeing. Best of all, we were able to bring our little pug with us as this lovely cottage is pet friendly! Couldn't ask for a better cottage to stay at and we're already planning our next stay here! I'm thankful that there is no wi-fi here as it allows you to unwind and leave all of the work stress at home -

“The perfect getaway”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in June 2014

I can't say enough about the time we enjoyed at this cottage on Fairholme Lake. Very peaceful, quiet, private setting with all the amenities (and more) that you want or expect. The kitchen and bathroom were beautiful, modern and very clean. The beds were very comfortable and clean as well.

There is no air conditioning, but honestly we did not need it. The temp was in the mid to high 20's while we were there, the tall oak trees provided shade and natural cooling. A fan and open window kept us cool a night, which is much nicer than the hum of AC

Communication with the Hays was easy and efficient. Questions we had were always answered quickly and accurately.

It is obvious the owners are very proud of this cottage and cherish it as their own personal retreat. We cant wait to go back
