Cottage needs a complete cleaning. No working fire alarms. We were here for 3 weeks. Water great. Canoe and kayak were provided.

All-Season Cottage Rentals' Response:

Thank-you for your feedback. We looked into the fire alarms and they DO work. You blew a breaker that operated the outdoor lights and smoke detectors. Once we switched the breaker back on, everything operated properly.

Canoe & Kayak was wonderful

We made great use of the canoe and kayak. The view of the lake was beautiful and the lake was the right size for our use. Even though we didn't use it much we appreciated the tub and the sauna. One thing I would have appreciated was mattress protectors on all the beds. They can be washed, mattresses can't. (Two mattresses did have plastic covers.) The kitchen was well stocked with utensils.

The cottage and area were great. The cottage could really use a couple of new beds to make it even better. Hopefully the trailer park or whoever is in charge of the road in could at least re-grade it. It actually was painfull driving in and out of the cottage. Overall though it was a great week and we would definitely consider either renting the McDonald cottage or a cottage in that area again

We have stayed in a few cottages in the Haliburton area the last few years and this one was the best so far. Very clean, convenient location (20 minutes to either Minden or Haliburton) and the beach with the shallow entry made it great for the kids. The neighbors were very friendly also. Our only complaint would be that the lake wasn't as swimmable then some of the others in the area, but the kids didn't seem to mind. We would defiantly recommend this cottage to others and thinking about staying there again ourselves.

I'm reluctant to rave about this cottage, I don't want the secret of how good it is to get out!

Overall an awesome stay. Had 3 adults and one child. Lots of room. The sand up top and down to the lake front is great. Had friends over for dinner. Lots of room. Kitchen was fully stocked. Only complaint is the step out of kitchen onto deck. But after a few days its not an issue. Just a fall hazard at night. Fishing was poor till the last night. We did bring a boat, marked tons of fish the whole week. The last night we pulled 8 smallies over 3lbs out off the dock. Massive fat fish. Top water at night seems to be the trick. Guy across the bay was super nice. Told us all about the lake. Lent us a tube for the boat for the week.

We had some issues with mice during our stay but the owners assured us they would get the problem fixed. The property is fairly private with beautiful views of the lake. This is an "old school cottage" and not a modern new home/cottage. It has updated appliances and comfortable furnishings and beds. I would recommend that you bring storage containers for your food as cupboard space is limited. It will also protect your food from potential mice issues. Some of the rooms did not have curtains or blinds installed. This reduced the amount of privacy required in the bedrooms and the sun room which we also used as a bedroom. The canoe and kayak where a great added feature. We will consider coming again
