The cottage is small but fairly well equipped. Although it has seen better days and some things are falling apart, the host, who lives next door, has been very helpful in coming over to fix things. The beds are singles. Door only on one of the rooms. The water comes straight from…

Response from Paul:
It is unfortunate unfortunate that the area did not suit her vacation needs. I suspect that rain all day on 6 of the 7 days of her visit was also very disappointing, which is why I offered her a free weekend at the cottage. I definitely appreciated the information about items being broken in the cottage, information that is rarely passed to the owner, so I was pleased to have been able to rectify those in a 30 min visit. I was also happy that the tranquility of the place is beyond expectation, that the Farmers Market is enjoyable and that the cottage offers great value for the price in relation to all others. However, there are some inaccuracies in the review I would like to correct: -There are doors for all bedrooms. Perhaps the accordian doors on two of the 3 bedrooms were not obvious? -There is a double pull out in the lounge (as per the listing) -There are no visible weeds, lilies, tall grass in front of the cottage, as per the photos with the listing and the lake is not mostly covered…but mostly free of weeds etc..and the swimming is great -The two beaches in Carleton Place, a 13 minute drive from the cottage, are on the Mississippi River, with sandy beaches and grass covered areas behind the sand with a depth of at least 8 feet in the weed less river. - There is an outdoor Chiminea and also a firebowl, as per the listing. There is no fire pit.
