I am from Toronto ON and love spending as much time as possible in the Georgian Bay area
This was a great place to stay! We were ten people and there was enough comfortable space for us to sleep. Communication with Doug was very good, and he helped us quickly with all questions we had. We would love to come again!
Our stay at Doug's cottage was fantastic ! It could not have been a better space for us to be. Not so fancy that we felt like we would wreck things, but nice enough that we were all very comfortable. TONS of sleeping space (we had 17 people, only 3 had to sleep outside), and lots of room to pitch tents in the backyard too if you need. There's a great and relatively quiet beach just on the other side of the block, we ended up playing football there for most of the day on Saturday (and were able to have a few drinks without anyone hassling us). Doug was incredibly flexible with coming + going times, we arrived on Friday at 3 and left on Sunday at 5. Lots of parking room (we fit at least 6 cars). The outdoor patio space was awesome and covered with a picnic table. We were a large group, so being quiet wasn't necessarily our forte, but we were a reasonable noise level (we think) and the neighbours did not complain (thanks!).
I'd highly recommend this fantastic space to any large groups looking for a great + affordable rental close to the beach! I know I hope to rent it again next year !
