Overall the cottage is misrepresented in the photos.
Please be advised that the cottage does NOT have a dock as pictured. We were not made aware of this in advance of arriving at the cottage, and this was problematic as we had rented a boat from a local marina (which we had even discussed prior to booking the cottage with the owner). The owner suggested parking at the community dock instead (which is not ideal as we booked a waterfront cottage specifically so we can have our vessel conveniently located outside the cottage), however a representative from the homeowner's association came over immediately to tell us not to use their dock.
In addition to not having a dock, there is no sandy area at the waterfront (all weeds), and the interior of the cottage is much less impressive than the photos as there is none of the decor that would make the cottage feel more welcoming and warm as portrayed in the photos. The mattress in the master bedroom needs to be replaced and there are no window coverings in the 2 bedrooms in the basement.
The kitchen is seriously lacking essentials that you would expect at an 'estate' cottage (for example, there is no toaster, no wine glasses, no salad bowl, colander, large pot for boiling water). For a cottage that can accommodate up to 10 people, we expected the kitchen to be much better equipped but were sadly disappointed. It did not meet the standards we are accustomed to in comparison to any basic cottages rented in the past. The BBQ was our lifesaver although we did have to pay for a propane refill as the extra tank was also empty.
The outdoor furniture is in poor condition and not maintained (pillows dirty or furniture broken) and the outdoor eating area could use an umbrella as there is no shade otherwise on the deck.
The cottage is located on a nice part of Pigeon Lake (near a sandbar for swimming accessible by boat and close to Bobcaygeon), and is not far from Toronto. There are actually 3 full baths and there is wifi available. However, I would not recommend this rental if you are expecting to get what you see in the photos. Overall we were disappointed. The cottage has potential but it does not seem any effort is put into making guests feel comfortable or have a memorable experience. We will not return.
