We are repeat customers at Chalets Nid du Heron. We have stayed at the cottages for the month of July during the past 3 years. Born and raised in the area, I can tell you that mostly everything is nearby. There is also an airport only 45 min away with daily flights to Montreal, which can be very handy. The... More

Last weekend we were at the Heron's Nest. We stayed one night (my husband, me and our small dog.) We paid $250.00 for the night. Although that seemed like a lot of money we thought we were going to have beach-front accommodations. However, the cabins are across a busy street from the Bay. so its not exactly beach front. The...

We try to keep our rates competitive for the high season in comparison to other similar establishments in the province, and do charge a 25$ + tax fee for pets. Sorry to hear you found us a little pricey. Glad you appreciated the front desk staff as they do work very hard to make our guests feel welcomed. We like... More

Took a chance on these little off the beaten path cottages and we were not disappointed. The location is only 5 minutes off the highway, 5 minutes from a well stocked store, 15 minutes from a grocery store and 30 minutes from Sugarloaf provincial park (which is beautiful!). The cottages are clean and well equipped, towels and linens are provided... More

Thanks for the great review and the constructive criticism! We do our best to keep the cottages well maintained. We're constantly touching up the paint, but the regular wearer and tear of the spring and summer take its toll. But we'll be looking into your cottage specifically to get it up to standard.

We stayed in June, which is perhaps before they open normally. The accommodations were a little rustic, but what expected. The shower had the hot and cold reversed, so I never got a shower on the first day. It could be cleaner and obviously there had been smokers there previously. It does overlook the bay and would have a nice... More

Sorry you didn't appreciate your stay with us. We have fixed the hot and cold water issue and as far as the smoking, we repainted the whole cottage and believe the problem is resolved. First time we receive a negative comment about the cleanliness of our cottages, so I was a little surprised. Beds are firm. We are gradually replacing... More

A great vacation spot, close to all amenities. Staff was very courteous. The only thing I would suggest is having a bit a maintenance done inside. Front door stuck alot, along with bathroom door.

This location is basically like a strip mall crossed with a subdivision. No privacy, right on the main road across from a rocky beach. The noise starts at 6:00 AM with back up beeps from trucks. The trash was collected at 5:30 AM by a big noisy truck right outside our cottage. Not a very relaxing vacation spot. There is... More

The cottages were great for our family of 6. Plenty of space and all the amenities of home. We stayed here while attending a sports training event. This allowed us to cook our meals instead of eating out. We would defintely stay here again.
