The sandy beach was actually full of weeds so we had to rake the weeds to swim. The lake was narrow and lots of speed boats going by regularly, although that is beyond the control of the resort. Apparently all the staff are students and were currently taking their exams so we're not sure what had been done to prepare for guests staying at the cottages. Seems like we were the first people to stay for the season on June 20th. The first morning we woke up and wanted to make coffee to bring down to the dock and there are no coffee filters for the coffee maker! We had to call the manager to go and pick some up, so problem solved, but they should have been stocked up. The toilet had an issue where it would keep running unless we opened the lid and pushed the plug into place. There was some miscellaneous piece of styrofoam floating around in the tank, not sure what the purpose of it was. When we arrived we noticed that there was a full bag of garbage under the sink from the last people who stayed there - not sure if it was from last season or not. Finally the barbecue tank ran out on the second use and we had to switch with the cottage beside us since there was nobody staying there that weekend. With the rundown state of the cottages, we think that they should have been priced a lot cheaper. If they had been in a better state of repair which I'm sure they were at one point, then they would have been worth the price. But $175/night for a single cottage was a bit much and we would have thought in the current state that they should have been priced $100-$125. Especially since the check-in is supposed to be 4pm and checkout at 11am next day. We were able to submit a request for early check-in online which was approved, but without that change we don't think the rate of $175/night was worth it with those original times. Saw some horseshoe pits, but no horseshoes though.
The quiet atmosphere because we were the only people staying there this weekend. It was less than a 2 hour drive from Toronto. The cottages and grounds were nice. Wifi access, but only close to the main building. You can sit on the lawn in front and get access.
