Wonderful weekend at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived just before the ice storm to a clean, tidy cottage, heat was already on and ready for us to start our vacation. Cottage looked exactly like the photos and beds were especially comfy. Well stocked kitchen, everything labeled and easy to find. Only concern going forward would be that the property is quite steep around the cottage, a concern with small children. Wi-fi was surprisingly good throughout the weekend and ice storm.

Owner was exceptional, responded to any questions I had within minutes. Went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable and safe during the ice storm. Thank you for a fabulous weekend!

Intimate yet spacious - amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, our stay was the outmost enjoyable. It was quite easy to find the cottage and had plenty of parking space. The cottage was very clean upon arrival and was pleasantly spacious. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we needed. I also really enjoyed the view of the water from the living room and bedroom. Since we stayed during February, we didn't get to enjoy the patio, but it looks like it would be wonderful for the summer! Having a sauna in the basement was a great addition to our relaxing weekend. Communication with Hany was very easy - he was a wonderful host! I would only suggest that the process to turn on the water and heat be a little simpler - though with the help of Hany, we were able to figure it out in a couple minutes. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Beautiful Spot

  • 4 of 5

Lots of room, clean, well maintained. Beautiful view. In the winter when you arrive it is a bit confusing with all the light and fan switches and some don't work but eventually you get it all figured out. They cleared the road of snow even on Christmas Day, which was great. Observing the birds at the feeders was beautiful.

Idyllic cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is ideal for a group of friends or larger family - spacious, with all the amenities needed and then some. The house feels modern, but with that perfect rustic edge. Hany made it very easy to access and use the space over the weekend, and my friends and I would happily come back in the Summer to enjoy the water. Great stay in the Winter too! Highly recommended.

Very private

  • 5 of 5

Hanys cottage was terrific! My husband and I just needed a little down time and this was the perfect spot. This spacious cottage is situated on the Big Rideau River great view of the water and private.. The cottage is fully stocked and has lots of space, and comfortable master bed. The cottage has a nice stone fireplace to relax by and there is a generous supply of wood just steps from the door. We enjoyed our mornings just sitting and watching the birds at the feeders. Very peaceful! Hany was great to deal with he answered any questions we had and was very quick to get back to us when we needed questions answered. The cottage is close to Kilborn on the Rideau and Westport great places to shop.
