Review of cottage stay
Cottage is a lovely site on the beautiful Big Rideau.
The cottage upstairs was spacious and well appointed. Our favourite spot was the lovely screened porch.
The downstairs (which has the 2nd bathroom) was damp and cold and the flooring was very dirty.
I had to bring my own coffeemaker as there was only a Bosch coffeemaker.
There was no satellite tv. Casting to the tv was possible but wifi was slow.
We disliked that the cottage manual was not disclosed until the final payment was made. There were various fines listed there for misbehaviours of all types and it was then also disclosed that there were surveillance cameras on the property.
There were no exterior garbage cans and we were responsible totally for our own disposal of garbage and recycling.
The owner was very helpful with any issues and resolved a water pump issue quickly.
The dock was really good for an 18 foot boat.
Great place, great location and wonderful lake. The lake is big enough that even though there are lots of people fishing and boating, there is still lots of space. Also very close to Westport, a great little quaint town with a nice golf course and little shops. The place feels like a house and not a cottage (quite spacious), property is large. We have a two year old and had to be careful as it is steep going to the shore. All in all we had a great stay.
Big Rideau Lake Cottage
Our family had a great time staying here in the middle of June. Our children swam almost everyday and they caught a lot of fish ranging from pike to bass to sunfish to blue gills. We felt like we were staying at a very private location. The cottage was huge and very well appointed. Hope to stay here again in the future.
Large beautiful property with lots of windows for view of the lake. Kitchen well stocked. Would highly recommend
This is a very large well-kept place. We were a bit surprised by the lengthy instruction manual - it seemed a bit intimidating but in fact it’s a.n easy place to stay. We stayed for a queens graduation - about an hour’s drive but that worked for us. You will need to plan - bring drinking water and buy coffee pods that work in their machine etc. Bedding and linens are provided
The property is beautiful and well kept... definitely recommend
