What to Expect
Each of our vacation rental properties possesses distinctive traits, and we consider it essential for you to be aware of these prior to your visit. Our goal is to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for every guest, and understanding these differences from your home can contribute to that. To assist in making your booking decision more informed, we present some key points for your consideration.
- Shared Beach: This cottage shares beach access with Cottage Cove (a dog-friendly property). Consequently, the beach is shared with other guests and the possibility of dogs.
- Cleanliness: We prioritize offering a clean environment for your vacation. Every linen, appliance, surface, and fixture is thoroughly cleaned between stays. However, there are some points to note:
- Our spacious, circular driveway at Cottage Cove is a great playground for kids and provides a smooth walking surface. However, it can lead to oil being tracked into the cottage from the asphalt, especially when guests walk barefoot from the beach. Despite our diligent cleaning efforts, the asphalt can sometimes leave oil marks on the cottage floors and bathtubs.
- With the beach comes sand, which we endeavor to remove completely. However, if we miss a few grains, rest assured they've been mopped, sprayed, or wiped clean.
- Please note, these points are not meant to excuse substandard cleaning. If you ever feel our cleaning is insufficient, let us know immediately, and we'll rectify the situation.
- Coastal Living Challenges: Our vacation rental homes are located on Lake Huron's shore, close to the Huron National Forest. Given our location and the age of our properties, please be aware of the following:
- Ants and other insects may find their way into the cottage, despite regular pest control efforts. You can help by maintaining food cleanliness and immediate cleanup.
- Rarely, mice may get past our precautions, especially during cooler weather. It's unlikely but worth considering when deciding to book.
- The location's humidity and higher water table might introduce unfamiliar smells. We assure you, however, that these scents don't indicate mold, and your health is our priority. Every rental is regularly inspected.
- Accessibility: Our cottages are not handicap-accessible. Most doorways are narrow, and some spaces may present obstacles for those with mobility issues. Please review all photos to assess suitability before booking.
- Provided Items: To simplify your packing, we supply essentials for your trip, but with certain limitations to stay competitive:
- Sanitary Items: Expect roughly 1 roll of paper towel, 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom, and 2 trash bags.
- Linens/Bedding: We provide each guest with 1 towel and 1 washcloth, based on the cottage's occupancy limit. Each bed is fitted with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, pillows with cases, and a light quilt. In the bathrooms, you'll find 1 floor towel and 1 hand towel. The kitchen is equipped with 1 dishcloth and 1 dish towel. Please note that we do not offer towel exchange services, nor do we provide extra linens beyond what is mentioned here.
- Kitchenware: We provide dinnerware to accommodate the maximum number of guests, plus basic cookware. e.g. at least 1 saucepan, 1 frypan and simple cooking utensils.
As frequent travelers, we value honesty and transparency about our properties to ensure you're well-prepared and can fully enjoy your vacation. If you need more information or have questions before booking, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're here to assist you.
