We were willing to overlook the deceptions (listed below) since our stay was short, but when a skunk invaded the cottage walls and bombed the place at 10 pm, we were forced to vacate in a hurry. Informing the manager of our situation and since he had no other place we could stay, he suggested lodgings at perhaps a hotel in nearby Gravenhurst. We incurred extra expenses since we could not cook or use the food we took in coolers to this cottage (now wasted). All meals had to be purchased. The cottage rental refund he promised NEVER happened and he never returned any emails or calls since that night.
The HomeAway, now Vrbo - TRAVEL CARE TEAM validated our claim to a refund, but nothing has come of that.
Property has large boat marina in the back yard. Boat motors will be your morning alarm clock. The noise of incoming and outgoing boats will keep away all wildlife and drown out any wild life sounds you expected to hear. No peaceful outdoor BBQ happening here either.
Owner failed to mention you can't drink the water or brush your teeth etc. without boiling it first.
Fireplace consists of an on the wall plug in unit the size of a small picture frame - a joke.
How is any of this good for business?
