Sewage Issue Unresolved

  • 1 of 5

Sewage backed up from the septic clean-out pipe in the basement utility room about half way through our stay. This had the effect of making the downstairs bathroom unusable (and of course the smell downstairs not very pleasant). Called Hany, and although he mentioned that someone would be there to take care of it right away, the maintenance person that came mentioned that this had been an problem before, and it would have to be taken care of, but by the time we left, the issue was still unresolved. As a landlord myself, raw sewage leaking into the basement of a rental property is pretty big deal, and warrants an emergency call to "Roto Rooter". I'd recommend using them (or the Canadian equivalent).

Owner's Response: Dear Thomas, We regret to hear this feedback and we apologies for this inconvenience in your stay with us. This is the first time this issue as occurred and we are working delifently to make sure the issue doesn't reoccur. Part of the problem was the diagnosis of this issue. What first wast a usual toilet clog, became a main drain clog during your stay. We got to work as soon as the issue occurred and its one of those things that we could not control. We now have resorted to using a peroxide cleaner as the snake was not effective in removing residual residue. Again we apologies that this had to happen during your stay. Sincerely, Hany Ibrahim

Once you go down the walkway to the cottage, you feel like you have the lake to yourself.

  • 5 of 5

Hany’s Cottage sits in a well-treed hillside setting on a large and private lot with plenty of parking, decent roads and good access to minutes-away village stores, but it is when you make you way down the walkway steps to the cottage that you realize that you have found a gem.

The building is solid and the finishes are good. The beds are comfortable, the furniture fits the setting and the kitchen is well equipped. There are several good sitting areas inside and out. The level of technology is exceptional and the inside space can be climate controlled with heat, AC, fans or fireplace.

These, and the many other creature comforts are significant in themselves but they only support the central purpose of a cottage visit. This is a good place to relax, to be quiet if you prefer or to share a few days of meals and laughter with friends and family. This cottage facilitates the change of pace you may need and does so comfortably in a beautiful country setting.

In Canada, the summer sun rises in the northeast and sets in the northwest. The lakeside windows of this cottage catch them both while enjoying cooling shade from the midday sun. Indoors or out, your time is your own and your experience is what you make of it. The lovely thing about this place of retreat is that it doesn’t get in the way. It supports your need for a break and however you choose to use your time.

Without hesitation, this property can be recommended, as can the owner who is easy to contact, is willing to help answer a question, clarify an instruction or troubleshoot an issue if one arises. If you visit Hany’s Cottage, you may well end your stay with a decision made to return if you can to this gem on the Rideau.

Most fun I've had in a while!

  • 5 of 5

I brought myself and 7 friends of mine for a 3 day 2 night stay at this cottage. Let me tell you it was the most fun I've had in a while it was great. They had so much to do I was fishing, relaxing on the lake, playing games on the Wii, we started the fire, and so much more. Really nice area with a good amount of seclusion. Overall you can't find a better cottage with a better price I would very much recommend it.
