Susans place was very nice,It lived up to all our expectations and i would recommend it to anyone looking to have a nice relaxing get away
It was wonderful to stay in this winter retreat cabin. It was such a relaxing and peaceful escape from "real life". The cabin is so cozy with its little stove it is easy to just snuggle inside with a good book. However, venturing outside is well worth it! We went for wonderful walks on the frozen lake and saw more deer than we could count. There are snow shoes but they weren't necessary during our stay. We capped off our adventures through the woods and ice by firing up the sauna and even dared to jump in the snow after we heated up (note: hard, crunchy snow should be avoided). Overall, our stay was terrific. The kitchen is fully loaded, there was wood to burn and a lovely sauna to enjoy. Just be sure you are (or are with) a capable fire builder. It was a rustic (just the right amount of rustic), cozy paradise.
We had a wonderful long weekend in Susan's cozy little cottage. Truly a magical place. The fully equipped kitchen was great for cooking big delicious meals, and the wood stove did a fantastic job keeping us warm day and night. Plenty of firewood and kindling was provided with extras stored in the shed. The living room is as cozy as can be with large windows offering picturesque views of the lake below. We went xc skiing around the lake every morning and snowshoeing every evening to see the beautiful sunsets. Thank you Susan for being a great host and adding to the ever growing Airbnb community with this great property! We'll be back again for sure.
Susan's place was exactly what I was looking for and everything worked out perfectly. She was very accommodating and super helpful with any questions we had. I couldnt have had a better experience.
Was a great experience. Cabin came exactly as advertised.
Looking forward to booking again in the future.
The Sheehan's cottage was beautifully set, clean, the kitchen was well appointed to make almost anything you might wanna make, the sauna got up to over 150 F which was perfect for coming back to after faceplanting in the snow, there were deer, there were blue jays, there were people ice fishing on the lake. Don't be daunted by the somewhat daunting set of instructions that come with the cabin. They're long because it seems that Susan has anticipated everything. Took a little while for the water to start running (a bit over an hour) because of the prolonged, intense cold the week before, but once the cabin warmed up (doesn't take long once you get the fire started) and the water was running in the toilet (the last thing to get going), we had no problems. All in all, a great place to spend the weekend.
The cabin was lovely and just as pictured. It was very cold when we arrived but there was plenty of dry firewood and kindling to get the wood stove going - also lots of blankets! There is a well-equipped kitchen with all the gadgets you need. The sauna was amazing and warmed up quite quickly. There's lots to do in the area, and we went dog sledding in the Haliburton Forest.
All in all a very relaxing and picturesque stay, perfect for a couple or a small family.
We really had a great holiday in this cottage. We were able to enjoy the quiet surroundings, the beauty of the landscape, as well as the sauna which could warm us and relax us after a nice snowshoeing on the lake among the deer ...
The cottage is very well equipped and nothing is missing.
A wonderful place to relax and spend quality time away from the bustle of the cities.
We had great 2 days at the hut and we enjoyed the nature and the snow! It is very cozy and the kitchen and bedroom have everything you can think of .
When you come in winter bring a lot of firewood and warm clothes because it is a cabin and not a house with normal heating.
Response from Susan:
Hi Benjamin and thanks for this comment. Note that we provide plenty of firewood and that the wood stove provides so much heat that people open the windows in the winter!
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful week at Susan's cabin. We had spent a long time looking for somewhere comfortable but rustic-feeling in a beautiful and secluded location. Susan's cabin exceeded our expectations on all fronts. We were there for the week before Christmas and the lake was quite deserted, which made for a very relaxing holiday. There was also about 2 feet of snow! We had been a little worried about being at the cabin without a car but it actually worked out really well - we were easily able to get taxis around when we needed to pop into the town and the taxi drivers were very friendly and helpful. The cabin itself is beautiful and had everything we needed, and Susan was brilliant at getting back to us straight away whenever we needed any help. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at the cabin again.
Susan stayed at my place for just one night but it was a pleasure to have her for her short visit! She was pretty busy with a work conference but we had a chance to visit a little bit and she was very nice and easy to talk to. Hopefully next time she can stay a little longer, and we can go check out Century 21 for some good shopping :-) Thanks for staying Susan!
It was a great pleasure hosting a Aribnb host ! Susan was the perfect guest, welcome back anytime. Thanks again for staying at my place. Roch
Susan stayed alone in the flat so there is not much for me to say.
A very noce woman. She left the apt clean as she got it
