Good potential - needs upgrading!
First off I want to say we had a great time and fabulous weather! This could be a cottage that you return to every year, but only with significant changes. The cottage itself has a good layout and the most fabulous views! It has a nice little beach and the water is shallow a long way out. It comes with a pedalo and some canoes and kayaks (in various states of repair). It is close to Prescott and Cardinal for last minute purchases. Christine was very good about getting back to us and when we shared our concerns and observations she seemed receptive. On the down side the dryer door did not lock and dishwasher did not work. The barbecue lighter was broken, it was difficult to light and the burners didn't distribute heat evenly. The outside furniture was old, rusty and the plastic cushions were falling apart. There was not sufficient outside furniture for our group so we didn't spend much time on the deck. Overall the beds were not very comfortable and mattresses need upgrading. Christine did contact us after our stay to say that they had replaced the dishwasher and living room couch and chair (they were very uncomfortable and only seating for 4 people) with a new couch and loveseat. If they did the same with the mattresses and the outside furniture it would be a huge improvement and worth renting again.
