First and most importantly...the view is fabulous. The cottage is right on the water. It is elevated so views are even better. You can hear the waves crashing on the shore. Great location for the firepit too. 2 minute drive to Foodland in Lions Head. Cottage is on a paved road easy to drive and amongst million dollar cottages. Stunning drive/views. Cottage is a bit smaller than I expected but suited our family of 4. Electric fireplace kept the chill off, Beverly cozy. Kitchen is pretty equipped. Tv on wall is a bit small for the space but satellite and Netflix so no complaints. Wifi worked well and I had to work so was thankful for good wifi. Not much grounds/lawn and parking is in front right by road, two cars, don't bring your boat nowhere to park it. The bed in smaller bedroom on main was very uncomfortable and creaky. Queen in master was great. Stairs to bedroom upstairs with 3 single beds was quite steep and no backs on stairs,didn't seem very solid, not safe for children. Cottage was tidy enough when we arrived but appears could use a thorough clean by a professional. Lots of spiders on living room ceiling/patio doors in and out/deck/patio furniture. There were lots of paperbacks to read. It was a relaxing week taking walks, short drives, watching Netflix, reading, and just enjoying the quiet as there was not much traffic and many of the cottages were closed up for the season which made the setting very serene.
Everything as advertised. Great view over Isthmus Bay and centrally located. Wonderful to have the lake "at your feet". Only 5 mins drive to Lions Head for 35 min. walk. The street it is on is a little busier than I am used to for a cottage but then again the convenience of the location made up for that. All cottagers around were very quiet. Kitchen well equipped and good bbq. Three different locations for sitting and eating to see the lake.
A little surprised that they provide (& wash) sheets for all beds. Despite the description on the website, there is a CD player & the DVD player also plays MP3 tracks on a CD. The cable TV had more channels than I wanted to look at!
The fridge basically worked OK, but there was no light in it. I replaced the bulb & found out why. The light never goes off, it actually warms the fridge up!
I have driven & hiked past this cottage for years and was very pleased to finally get to stay it it. We will likely go back there (if it isn't booked).
