About Maria Cimino

We are avid travellers and love nature and the outdoors. We have been to many parts of the world and understand how important it is to feel at home wherever you may be. We hope that you will be build lasting memories at our place as we do each time we visit.

Maria Cimino purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Maria Cimino chose Leamington

We stumbled upon this property while going through Chatham-Kent on a drive through the Essex-Windsor region and instantly fell in love. The tranquility, the privacy, and the feeling of complete relaxation when we are on the property made the decision to purchase the property a quick one.

What makes this cottage unique

If you love to be enveloped by nature and you love privacy, this is the place to visit. Each and every time that we are at our Cottage by the Shore, I get a sense of peace. I love the sound of the water near me, the sway of the trees, the sound of the birds overhead or on the lake, and the smell of nature.

Great home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This cottage, and owner, was terrific. Right on the shore, great views and modern and clean. There was a welcome basket upon arrival, which was just so welcoming, and it felt very homey. I would definitely stay here again.

Host Maria was excellent, Charming lakehouse, house interior/exterior could use a good cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

Maria is a great host, easy to communicate with. Promptly replied to emails/texts. There was a nice welcome note and basket with coffee and treats.

Linens, towels, and beds were top notch, and the shower had wonderful pressure.

However, the exterior of the house looked as though it hasn't had any attention to it recently. It was covered in spider webs, we had to clean the deck, table, and chairs before it was fit to use. The chairs were askew on the deck upon arrival. Every window was dirty and more spiderwebs. The lawn appeared long and untrimmed.

The house was absolutely charming inside, and Maria has a flair for pulling off a relaxing lake house ambiance.

But there were numerous things that needed attention - windowsills with very visible dust and what appeared to be pet hair , bathroom vanity ledge and medicine cabinet/mirror ledge were dirty, and we cleaned a big clump of dust and hair from a simple swipe. The microwave had sticky food and fingerprints on the door, the coffee maker had used grounds in it, and old coffee in the pot. The livingroom floor had little bits of what appeared to be candy or crumbs scattered around.

The patio doors, tracks, and screens facing the beautiful lake view were plenteous in dirt, dust, and spiderwebs, thus somewhat spoiling the perfect view that we had booked the house for.

I get that it is a lake house, and lots of bugs and spiders but it honestly looked like no one had cleaned up at all outside recently. We also had to bring in the recycling and garbage bins from the road to put our trash/recycling in before we left.

I give 5 stars and complete satisfaction to communication with Maria, the cute house, linens and towels, and super comfy beds. Absolutely fabulous.

But the state of the exterior and numerous things on the interior get 2 stars. When I go away and pay good $, I do not expect or want to spend time cleaning. I worked for years in hospitality, specifically housekeeping in high end B&B's, so I know I am not being unreasonable in my expectations and constructive criticism.

If these things are paid attention to, it will make a world of difference to future guests.

We had a lovely time for our annual girls getaway weekend.

We enjoyed our wine tour at Point Pelee, the ferry ride to Pelee Island, and tour of the island. The food at local restaurants was fresh and delicious.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you and your friends had a lovely time during your getaway. We sincerely apologize that you did not find everything to your liking. We do pride ourselves in making our home as comfortable and as clean as possible. Our caretaker always puts her best into her work and takes pride in it. Unfortunately, the exterior of the home will continue to have spider webs as we are near a lake and the spiders do what they do naturally over night even after wiping them clean the following day. Nonetheless, thank you for your feedback. We wish you all the best in your future endeavours. Sincerely, Maria

Very enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nice and generally as described. Would definitely stay there again. Property is right on water with calm lake breezes throughout the house. Loss of a star due to the lack of wi-fi and generally poor cell reception. Also lack of toiletries in the bathroom (soap, shampoo, etc.)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your appreciation of our property. We are glad that you enjoyed being by the lake and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. Unfortunately, due to the remote location of the cottage, wi-fi and cell phone reception may not be the best with some cell phone providers. We do hope to welcome you again in the future. All the best! Sincerely, Maria

Good spot for birding

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable clean cottage right on the lake Erie waterfront. Cottage is as described. Owners were nice enough to provide a welcome pack of coffee, tea, cookies and a few other things. We chose this cottage because we were visiting the area for the birding at Point Pelee National Park and Hillman Marsh which were a short drive away. We would stay here again.
