“Nice & cozy cottage on the small river”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in January 2015
people found this review helpful

We booked this cottage for a New Year weekend. Cottage is located on the bank of the river on a small street with just one row of houses along the river. There is a forest on the other side of the street. The area is very quiet and peaceful, 10 minutes drive from Fenelon Falls. If you want to forget about all the city noises – it is a right place to spend a weekend or several days. I wish I could visit it in summer. The view on the river is wonderful.

The cottage is very spacious. You just need to bring your own linens and towels. All the rest is provided. There are 4 bedrooms. One with the queen bad on the first floor. This bedroom located in cottage extension. If you are a light sleeper - chose this bedroom and you will not hear anybody. The second bedroom – the biggest one, is on the second floor. There is a queen bed there and enough room to put a mattress, if you have more than 2 people staying in the room. There is a bathroom with toilet and sink on the same floor. 2 more bedrooms are on the 3rd floor: one with 2 futons and another with a queen bed. Staircase to the 3rd floor is very steep. Be careful. There are tons of pillows and blankets, so you can sleep comfortably. Each bedroom has an oil heater; you can set the temperature you like. What we would like to be added into bedrooms – some extra furniture like chest of drawers or just shelves and hooks to put your stuff.

On the first floor, there is a big family room with fireplace, big sectional sofa, big TV that kind of old. Dining area has a huge dining table that can fit 10 people and a kitchen with everything you need. Washroom with a shower, toilet and a sink is also on the first floor. For those staying longer period – there is a washer and a dryer. Propane BBQ is outside. The cottage has Wi-Fi. Sometime it worked well, sometimes we had problems watching internet TV.

In the kitchen, there are lots of dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster, kettle. What really made my days was a dishwasher. It is first time in the cottage when we do not have to wash the dishes and as we were staying as a big company of 9 people, it is a lot of dishes. What is also make you feel very comfortable - other things you usually have at home: spices, tea, oil, parchment paper, foil. You can cook whatever you want. Not a problem if you forgot something, look around the kitchen and you can find it there.

The owner of the cottage is very nice. Whatever questions I had – I got answers from her very quickly with all the details.

I would definitely recommend this place for a group of friend or extended family. I hope we will be able to go back one day.
