Kitchen was bright and well equipped but lacking a personal feel in the welcome and some amenities that we have found in other cottage rentals. The cottage features a wood burning fireplace, however, no wood was stacked inside which meant everything was slightly damp, and there was no kindling provided whatsoever, a dullish axe was available. Seems to be something wrong w/ the flue as even with it opened, smoke came into the house, which accounted for the campfire smell we noted when we first arrived, and unfortunately left with clinging to all of our belongings. Also the barbeque had a tank attached and there was also a second tank, the one attached had only enough fuel to get the barbeque started and the second tank was empty. We started looking quite late for a place to spend a few days after christmas and new years so our options were quite limited, the backyard is huge (long/narrow) but that also means no visible waterfront which is a personal nice-to-have for me in a cottage, it feels a bit more like a house than a cozy, warm, cottage. The booking process with Ontario Cottage Rental was a bit clumsy as many of the cottages they had on their website and were noted as available turned out not to be. All in all, was clean and nice enough, but wouldn't return and wouldn't be my top choice for a referral to a friend.
