Not too clean, especially in outside covered rooms (dusty and unswept) and grounds unkempt and in ne
Rustic but we got used to it. Very cramped. Can fit 3 at most. cobwebs inside and unkempt outside, but it has potential. Very close to the lake beach and in a very peaceful neighborhood. Overall we had a good stay. It could definitely have been cleaner though.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property is highly unsafe. The driveway was straight downwards with a couple s-curves.We didn't park our vehicle at bottom of driveway because we were afraid we wouldn't get out.The beds not made and beetles in the bed.Eatting area very dirty. No customer service at all when I tried to call the property manager. We left after one night because we felt unsafe.

Beautiful Little Cabin in the Woods
Very much enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Great use of such a small space; everything we needed was provided. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to be back.

Lovely for Summer
This place is not recommended for winter as the heat could not keep up and the pipes froze due to sub zero temperatures. The owner did give me a discount. Being that said, it was a lovely place. Pretty tiny, but functional for a couple or 1 person. This would be a great place for summer.

Extremely Disappointed
This was an extremely disappointing stay, I have used vrbo/other similar sites countless times and this is easily the worst experience I've ever had. We arrived later in the evening and were shocked to find that the beds were not made up at all, which after a long journey to get there was extremely frustrating. The next thing we noticed is that the sleeping cabin had clearly not been cleaned recently, dirt on most surfaces, the glassware and most kitchen items were filthy and clearly unwashed. Then when we open the fridge to load groceries we find it is full of mold and also dirty and not clean. Moving to the bathroom, the claw foot tub was absolutely disgusting, again clearly not cleaned recently, which was a huge let down. Lastly the most concerning thing was an open electrical box with exposed wires sticking out on the wall directly above the bed, a shocking fire hazard for an all wood cabin. Upon messaging the host to bring up our concerns and to try and remedy the situation they ignored me completely and have not tried to make things right. Terrible experience all around, would definitely not recommend booking this property.

Lovely cozy cedar cottage getaway
We took our 2 kids and tiny dog with us for a 3-night family getaway filled with board games, exploring Saltspring, and home cooked meals, and this was the perfect place for that. Make no mistake, it's very small but that's also part of the charm. The cabin walls have that lovely cedar smell, the bathroom has a large deep tub with a bright skylight, the kitchen is extremely well stocked and the BBQ is large and brand new. We slept on the large bed area with our son (who prefers to cuddle so he was happy) and our daughter was happy to have the small single bed to herself. If you want a large roomy place, this isn't for you, but if you want to have a cozy space with plenty of character, then this is the place for you. It was also nice having plenty of extra outdoor space for eating outside and sitting on the covered halogen-lit porch. We'd love to come back again!

Wow! What a lovely place!
Beautiful, very small home - I would not rent this for more than a couple and a very small child. Clean, well organized and lovely, this is a perfect getaway if you love quiet and cozy. Highly recommend. The bed is a bit hard - tatami like pad instead of mattress - and there is no access to the lake in summer from the property, but these are the only downsides (and you can drive to the lake in under 5 mins). Heed the warning about the driveway!
