Best rental experience ever
Our daughter and husband spent time with us, and then my son, wife, and granddaughter spent time. The cabin itself is a vacation. You will spend an hour just looking at and discussing the beautiful and truly unique woodwork. It's not like we don't have a nice home but, if you like log homes, being in "Norm's Cabin" is like an oasis. Just truly beautiful and comfortable. It's ruined our idea of what a log cabin should be. Nothing compares to this one's beauty. Everything is as if brand new. The loft is open and airy, the beds are comfortable, the bathroom is large and easy to navigate. Great shower. Accommodating washer and dryer. The kitchen has tons of working space and all the counter top appliances, and a full-size gas grill on the deck. Oh, a picnic table that is a piece of natural art. AND, a doe and two spotted fawn in the back yard the evening we arrived. We said Jason must of paid them to be there. On top of what we've just written, we have never had a host who was as "hostable!" than Jason. Good to work with before we arrived, there to meet us when we arrived, and checked in by phone every couple of days to make sure we didn't need anything. As for the island, well, we love Drummond. This is our fifth trip. First, for our honeymoon thirty-five years ago. Then, back with my parents, and various children over the years. During the four previous stays we housed at a set of resort cabins owned by a couple who have since sold the cabins individually. Most of the roads to the various ends of the island can be reached by car if you drive slowly when you get near to the ends. We drove a mini-van to Warner's Cove where the water is knee-high walk-out deep; and all the way to the end of Glen Cove Road where the water is crisp and swim-able. We had never in the past heard of the Fossil Ledges - why I simply do not know. But, we followed the map in our Chrysler Town and Country saying that, if my husband had come along, he may have raised his eyebrows at some of the puddles we traversed ("never trust a puddle"). We were passed by Jeeps and Side-by-Sides along the way but, when we arrived, there was a mini-van in the parking area with a trailer in tow! You can walk all along the Ledge filled with fossils in calf deep water warmed by the sun shining through to the rock. My son swam in water four feet deep but just a little farther out, the ledge drops to 65 feet, so caution with kids. The IGA store is a little pricey but you're supporting the island.
