“Great location”
Reviewed 5 September 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Our week started off a bit rocky. The cottage did not appear to be thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival, especially the kitchen floor . My sister gave everything, including the bathroom a quick cleaning before we unpacked. The shower curtain was moldy/grungy. The hot water ran out at the end of the first day. The driveway was very steep, it was just loose gravel with huge potholes. We had trouble getting our cars up the incline and on a day where there was heavy rain we actually parked on the road rather than deal with the driveway. We called the contact number given to us and spoke to the owner directly. He told us how to turn the hot water back on. He contacted the cleaning lady who showed up the next day with a new shower curtain. After this the rest of the week went well. We were happy with the cottage's location on Dyers Bay. It is right on the lake and the kids loved being in the water. It was about a 30 min drive to Tobermory so we were not in the thick of the tourists. It was very quiet which we appreciated. The cottage itself is comfortable and welcoming. There are two fire pits and the shed had bikes, chairs and a barbeque. The cottage next door was rented by a man with his small children. The cottages shared the outdoor equipment and this was not a problem for us. The cottage was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, kettle and coffee maker. We would stay here again now that we are familiar with its quirks. Please note that the top bunk beds do not have protective railings on them, so it is not suitable for small children. Also, you have to go through the bedroom with the bunk beds to get to the bathroom.

“Best sleeps!”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Dave's Retreat was a sweet retreat with room to roam, cook, sit, relax and fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing. I enjoyed waking up to amazing sunrises and walked down to the shore to take pictures with my coffee in hand. It's a very cozy space with full amenities including space heaters to take the chill off. The wifi worked great. I would definitely rent this space again.
