About Angela Luce

I grew up spending summer weekends at our family camp (cottage) and built my own place a few doors down. I bought the A Frame next door in 2011 so I take excellent care of the place.

Angela Luce purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Angela Luce chose Mannsville

Fairly secluded as it is surrounded by trees with nice garden area. Very comfortable and cute. TV gets NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox, but no cable. Wireless high speed internet at no cost.

What makes this cottage unique

The beach is the main attraction with 1.5 miles of walkable, sunset viewing beach with shallow water that gradually gets deeper, all sand.

Very accommodating and Cozy Camp

  • 4 of 5

We (5 adults and 1 child) stayed here for 4 days. The camp has all amenities you need, is very roomy, has nice lower and upper deck. Everyone had their own space. We ran out of water while staying here, but Scott was very accommodating and came right over to hook up more water. The ONLY issue I have is the photos of the water/beach area. There is NO SAND BEACH to speak of. It IS totally COVERED IN ROCKS. We have vacationed here in the past, and when we DID, it was a beautiful sandy beach, just like the photos, again that was a long time ago. If a sandy beach is not important to you, this is a great place to stay. We should have checked to make sure the sand was still there before we rented, as it had been 16 years since we have been there. There is a state park, Southwick Beach, which is about 20 minute drive, which has a beautiful beach, playground, showers etc, if this is important to you. We DID go there and it was nice.

Owner's Response: Darlene, June 2015 had the highest Lake Ontario water level increase in its over 100 year history of record keeping due to the record June rain and winter snow runoff. You rented right after that, unfortunately. But, with an additional 100 yard walk, there was access to the stretch of 1.5 mile beach that was plentiful. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but sometimes Mother Nature wins. Scott

Great Value and Beach

  • 5 of 5

This property provides a lot for the money. To begin, Scott is a gem, when we arrived he went out of his way to make us feel at home. As Canadians we wanted our hockey and he spent the better part of half an hour with a wrench up on the roof trying to get the antenna to pick up a station from across the lake. He also took us for the minute walk to show us the beach. And what a beach!! I have never experienced such a wide expanse of sand on fresh water – you think you are at the ocean. Also the community has largely avoided placing their cottages too close to the water so there is the feeling of a natural setting. Oh yes, the sunsets are spectacular. The cottage is tickety-boo clean and tidy and is nicely equipped. It was a surprise to bring the blankets from our own bed – made us feel very much at home. Afeature is the two decks plus balcony where one can find their choice of sun or shade any time of the day. Also the surrounding mature trees lend a nice touch. We will be back!!
