“Cozy cottage in terrific location”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have vacationed in Tobermory for 11 out of the last 12 years. We have come to find this one of the most peaceful and relaxing vacations of the year. You can read elsewhere about the numerous trails and parks to explore and the quaint town of tobermory that is only a 10 min drive from the cottage.
This is a single level 'antique' cottage with a beautiful stone fireplace. The living room furniture appears new and is comfortable. The pine walls have been painted and there are new laminate floors. There are three bedrooms that would sleep 2-3 adults and 3 children comfortably (bunk beds). Laundry is provided in the third bedroom closet.
There is a drilled well on site however there is an issue with rust (common in limestone) The water tastes a bit rusty (we used bottled for all purposes). They have a rust purifier, however, it may have needed servicing. A load of laundry came out with rusty discolouration on the whites. The bathroom was in need of some TLC. The shower was very low in pressure and the curtain was in need of replacement. There was a tub also (not used).
Not atypical for these rentals, the bedroom mattress was well worn (springs could be felt in master bedrm). Fortunately we brought a foam mattress topper this year just in case!
We enjoyed the hot tub rental, and yes there is an additional fee. There is a tandem ocean kayak and and a single kayak. The water entry is difficult. Look for calm water, early morn or late afternoon/early evening for your jaunts.
We gave the rating 3 stars primarily for the price associated with the accommodations. (3.5 stars if an option) There are equivalent cottages in the area that are priced more competitively. We note many families have enjoyed their stay at this cottage.

Management Response
11 Aug 2014
Thanks for the feed back we appreciate it. The owners have advised us that the shower curtain has been replaced, the water treatment system serviced and the shower head replaced, hard water from the well builds up calcium in the head restricting flow. All the mattresses In the cottage are less than three years old. The bed in the master bedroom was purchased in 2013.
