Wonderful cottage, great location. The house was well stocked, we wanted fior nothing, like being at home. We cooked out a couple nights, sat around the fire pit in the evenings, the beach is almost outside your door just a short walk down the hill, beautiful view and sunsets. The house is lovely and we felt quite at home. Great communication and absolutely everything was clearly stated. Darryl even met us upon arrival to show us around and was always available for questions or whatever. We can’t say enough good things! It was a perfect location for us, short drive to either Bayfield (our main destination) or Grand Bend.
We were very pleased with this rental. The owner's communication was excellent throughout the planning and renting. Their cottage was very clean (and I know clean!) and the kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the living areas were not only comfortable, but also visually pleasing to the eye. We had a rainy weekend but we didn't mind, happy in the cozy cottage. Their cottage is a few minute walk to the waters edge. The neighborhood is quiet, and separate from the major tourist areas (about 10 minutes away by car).
Weather was perfect and it was definitely beach weather. We loved that we we so close to Bay field and other surrounding areas.
The cottage was well appointed and very clean. We loved being able to sit outside and watch the water. We decided to eat in for 2! Of the 3 nights. It was too wonderful.
Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are up to date. Darryl was very friendly and accommodating. We hope to go back next year. Fishing on the Maitland was outstanding!
The cottage is very well kept and the owners provide you with a tremendous amount of information of things to do, places to visit and eat and attractions of the area. The setting is very private with landscaping and the views from the second floor balcony are tremendous. The large back yard provides the ability to have intimate family get together over the campfire pit or with games we brought like bocce ball, horse shoes and other outdoor games. The WIFI and Cable TV worked exceptional. We were able to really visit the neat towns from this central location. We visited Bayfield and enjoyed a fantastic sunset, a great dinner at Black Dog Village Pub and ice cream at Coppenhagens across the street. Very historic and interesting downtown area. We visited Goderich, named Canada's prettiest city, with a centralized square which springs out from the main city building, very cool. Great lunch at West Street Willy's Eatery and fun strolling streets and city beach. Highly recommend dinner in Exeter, ON at Eddingtons too. One day was a play day and we saw two plays in Stratford, ON (less than one hour away), and enjoyed both the shopping there and the grate places to eat. We made several visits to the Pinery Provincial Park and Grand Bend. Loved to explore the beautiful beaches of the Pinery. Darryl and Allyson have really stocked the place well and there are nearby farmers markets and grocery stores in Grand Bend and Bayfield to provide you with whatever you need to grill out and enjoy the patio or prepare something inside. Everything you need to use in the kitchen is there. Our family is from Michigan and our daughter, husband and baby from California were also there for the family gathering. Great time.
