“Great Off-Season Escape”

The cottage suffers a few very minor maintenance issues (broken window handles, a couple of permanently fogged up windows, the front door is difficult to open, we were not permitted to use the second floor shower because of a leak) but they don't take away from the splendid feeling of isolation it has so close to town and the beautiful craftsmanship of the house and deck.

First of all, let me just say: it is a BEAUTIFUL house. All stone and wood beams and marble and hardwood floors. The kitchen is fantastic. And it's in a beautiful setting, up a rocky beach from Lake Huron. Sunsets visible from the fire pit area. Gorgeous views.

The location is wonderful. Even in the off-season, when much of the town of Tobermory is boarded up until spring, it's convenient to be a less than five minute drive to the grocery store. As for neighbours, there are houses on either side, but you can't see them from anywhere inside the house. You feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, all by yourself. The cottage is surrounded by trees to the point of being all but invisible from the beach. It's a very private getaway.

It was very easy to find using the supplied directions and the rental process itself was easy to follow and the company that handles it was professional and helpful. The logistical side of things was hassle-free and pleasant.

Overall, I would most recommend this property for couples. The large number of stairs both inside and outside as well as the rocky terrain by the lake would be difficult to deal with if travelling with young children.

Long story short: I would go back to this property. The minor issues it had were far outshone by the beauty of both the house and the location.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
