Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described. Coming from Alberta we arrived late into the Sault so we were so relieved that the directions provided were simple and clear. The house was both welcoming and comfortable. As there was 8 of us we were worried about space but the layout was perfect as we never felt cramped. It was clean and very well maintained. Dealing with the owners was a pleasure they were very helpful with instructions about lights, TV, and general maintenance. I would most diffidently recommend a stay at this location.

As soon as we set eyes on the cottage, we were thrilled! Everything was exactly as shown in the pictures and everywhere was spotlessly clean. There were so many things to enjoy from the ping pong to the darts and the fire pit. We were lucky with the weather, but if it should be bad, there's the cozy fireplace and literally hundreds of movies to watch! Karen was very helpful and answered all our questions without delay. Absolutely faultless and we would all love to go back.

Absolutely Fantastic Cottage Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly enjoyable experience from the first enquiry to our last departure. The cottage was exactly as pictured and described. Very clean and welcoming. The kitchen was well stocked and the porch was perfect for entertaining family members who dropped by to visit. Everyone agreed that we had the best rental on the island.The beach area was small but perfect for children and we enjoyed canoeing and kayaking in the quiet lake. Life jackets were provided. The lake was great for swimming. Correspondence with Karen was easy. Would love to return.

More Than a Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The Sundberg's cabin is a beautiful place that easily accommodated my family of four and my brother's family of four. There was something to do for all the kids who ranged in age from 3 to 17 from the peaceful lake in the back equipped with kayaks to the ping pong table in the basement. The cabin is very clean, has every need provided for, is roomy and very welcoming. We would definitely recommend visiting St. Joseph's island and staying at the Sundberg's cabin.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We have used Homeaway many times and this property by far is one of our favourites. Very cozy cottage and close to everything. The canoes/kayaks were awesome. The place is meticulously cared for and had everything that you will need for a great vacation. St. Joseph island was super cool as well and the golf course was perfect. We will be definitely back next year.

modern, well equipped and clean

  • 5 of 5

Sundberg's "log cottage" is really a modern home in disguise, and an excellent choice for an easy holiday located on a maple-forested island in a very clean comfortable well-equipped cottage. The location is on Twin Lakes - a quiet inland lake, great for safe canoeing, kayaking, fishing and relaxing. Don't miss historic Fort St. Joe, the maple syrup industry, fresh fish, and a sandy beach for kids nearby across the lake. With dishwasher, laundry, canoe, kayaks, a fully equipped kitchen, several comfy clean beds, it makes for a relaxing quiet holiday, especially on the huge shady deck overlooking the lake. We highly recommend this lovely cottage !

Cheers !

While on the island you will want to visit the St. Joseph Island Museum, Adcocks' Woodland Garden, and the Fort St. Joseph National Historic Site. Travelers to the island also enjoy golfing, fishing, hiking and water sports. There are several festivals and live music concerts throughout the year. And just 45 minutes away, the city of Sault Ste. Marie is home to the Agawa Canyon Tour Train with world famous one-day train tours to Agawa Canyon and the Canadian wilderness.

$195 CAD per night with no booking fees. Minimum stay during June through September is 6 nights. Not available November through May.

We do not charge a cleaning fee up front because we believe it is a good idea to give people the opportunity to save money by leaving the cottage clean and as they found it (except we will wash linens and make the beds). So we have made our $250 CAD security/cleaning deposit fully refundable. However, if the cottage requires excessive cleaning, we will deduct from the deposit accordingly.
