What a great little cottage! Perfect for a small family or a close group of friends. It was only a 25 minute drive from Blue Mountain, and steps away from Barcelo's, a fantastic restaurant. There were also several stores, and a LCBO. Marc was also a great host, and even though we never saw him he made sure to keep in touch.
There were some last minute issues with the plumbing due to the unusually freezing weather, so we didn't have any hot water in the bathroom, but I'm sure the issue will be quickly resolved. Although the problem was out of his control, Marc warned us ahead of time and made sure we still had a comfortable trip, he let us know of the YMCA only a 5 minute drive away and offered a significant discount for out inconvenience.
Overall the place is great, the host is great, and the surrounding area has a lot to offer, even in the coldest of winter weather.
Thank you for your review. You made an unusually difficult situation much easier to handle than it could have been. Thank you for being so understanding. I usually try to stay away so as not to impose on guests. Never sure what people prefer. I do try to compensate by being available and on-call.
We rented Marc's cottage for the labour day long weekend. It was a great home base for some final days of summer fun. Close to everything one would need for a cottage weekend in Wasaga. Marc was very flexible and responded quickly to all of my questions before the trip. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils for all of our meals. All in all a nice vacation spot.
We loved how central the location of the cottage was. The beach one way and the skateboard/bmx park the other way. Worked out very well for us. Thanks Marc, we enjoyed our vacation!
We had a great stay at this cozy cottage! There was no stress as everything was provided, convenient and simple. Especially enjoyed how close and private the beach was! We will be back!
The cottage is located conveniently by the Superstore and the beach is a short walk away. You can walk there in your shorts and walk back in your towel. Marc was a pleasure to deal with. He made sure we had everything and was quick to respond to my messages.
The cottage itself is cozy and pretty well stocked with almost all the utensils you need. Our weekend getaway was unforgettable and this cozy cottage helped :).
Marc was a fantastic host - very responsive, made coordinating the stay hassle free and went out of his way to do what he can to help. The cottage was quaint and very well equipped with bedding, cookware, games & entertainment. We enjoyed the BBQ, patio furniture and outdoor fire pit! Also, there was a Superstore/LCBO/Tim Hortons complex less than a 5 minute drive away and the main strip of Wasaga was about a 10 minute drive. Overall a great experience and much nicer stay than any of the motel/cottage 'resort' options!
My friends and I rented the cottage from Marc for the May 24 weekend, I was the person to book with Marc and he was really easy to work with and helpful when we had any questions. The cottage is easy to find, is close to beach 5 and a Super Store and LCBO, Shoppers Drug Mart etc. It is located in a quiet neighborhood so it is a good spot for relaxing and bonfires, enjoying time with friends. Bedding is provided at the cottage so we didn't have to bring that with us. You do need to bring towels and hand towels, wash cloths for the kitchen, this was mentioned by Marc. Overall it was a good experience. A great place if you want to relax and have a peaceful weekend in Wasaga, close to the beach and away from the touristy/party hub. We also took a day trip to Blue Mountain and that only took about 30-35 minutes to drive there.
