Other Things to Note
All good people who love to travel and have a good time, love the outdoors, are respectful, open-minded and open-hearted pls come and stay with us!
Smoking ok but outside the house, only. Butts in trash. No glass in sauna! Well-behaved dogs welcome. Standard respect to owner's belongings. Respect the need for quiet if studio or office are in use pls. Great design takes much great thought…and inspiration. That's where you come in…
I have to say that's the best cottage I have stayed at. We did have a few visitors during the day and they had a blast. A lot of room to do anything you like both inside and out. Perfect patio space, really close to wasaga beach 6 and I honestly will love to stay there again. Pictures are exactly how it looks.
If you are looking for a cottage to get away and have a quiet weekend away this is the cottage for you
Thanks again Annie for allowing us to stay here
So glad you had an awesome time and that our place was everything you wanted it to be, Kathryn! That's what we always hope for and work towards so nice to know you felt the good vibes there! DO come visit again!
ps - my guests who are staying now got a big kick out of your photos in the guest book! FUNSVILLE! Cheers
My friends and I stayed at Annie's home for 3 days and it was absolutely amazing! Her home is gorgeous and such a good place to relax! We had a great time there and Annie made us feel right at home! We will definitely be coming back next year!
Annie's place in Wasaga was amazing. My friends and I had such a great time. Although Annie wasn't around she was very easy to reach by phone. Her house looked exactly like the photos, and she makes her guests feel so welcomed. We wish we could of stayed for longer because the area is beautiful and her house is very comfy and cozy. Loved all the paintings and art. It has a great vibe overall. I would highly recommend booking her place for a nice getaway from the city. Thank you Annie, we'll be back for sure!
Absolute perfection! We had the most fun family reunion BBQ with cousins and family we hadn't seen in years! It was the best! Annie's home is both stunningly artistic and family friendly. Everyone raved about it!
I can see how it could easily fit a couple, a lone writer needing peace with the occasional visitor, or to host family fun.
I loved every minute! I could have stayed longer! I'll stay there again if I'm in the area!
The house was exactly as described. Location was great for us, quiet and we could easily reach the main beach area.
We had a great time!
Our experience here was amazing! The pictures are exactly how it looks! Gorgeous! There is literally no complains and nothing I would change about this beautiful place! It was very comfortable and a lot of fun! I definitely plan on staying here again in the near future! Thanks again for having us Annie! :)
YOU ROCK, CHIQUITAAAAAAAA!!!
T'was my GREAT pleasure to share my home with you and to know that you enjoyed an experience that I could help bring to life for you and your friends! I look forward to the next time we can do this! LIFE IS GOOD when you get to meet new awesome people! Be well. Be very, very well! xa
The house is exactly as seen in the pictures, the lighting and decor are outstanding. The arrival and departure process was flawless. We felt right at home from the minute we pulled in until the moment we left... and believe me, we did not want to leave.
Annie was away for the weekend but was outstanding with replying to our texts and calls for help in the house, and even rushed home to see us off right before check-out.
Do yourself a favour and pamper yourself for a week...or a weekend at Annie's dream home. The windows are inspiring, the fireplace is cozy and the sauna is a dream. Also, do not leave without asking Annie about some of her traveling stories; learning about her passion and love for her work and for life in general was the icing on the cake right before leaving.
10/10 for everything. Awesoem place, awesome host. Thank you so much Annie and you will definitely see us again, Even if it's just for coffee in Toronto!
My heart is FULL, Raz. You were THE ULTIMATE guests...the ones who prove that we do this for love not so much for the money. Connections are worth a million times more and I was very happy to have made your acquaintance. We know good folks when we are with them and I look forward to the next time we can all hook up again. Gratitude. Greatitude!
