We had a great honeymoon in the yurt!! The yurt was so cozy, and the bed was sooooo comfy! There were great cooking facilities set up for us, and our own private beach. Karen and Gary were both so friendly and helpful! We weren't able to pick up food the night before and they created a little cafe package for us until we had a chance to go get some groceries. What a great experience, we spent our days boating around Massassauga provincial park, and there were so many great spots nearby. We recommend the Moon Island hike (so much wildlife!) and the Calhoun Lodge trail. 5/5 stars, we are two happy campers :)

Statement from paying yurt guests, We are two busy, responsible professionals that extended our weekend stay at Karen’s yurt from the 18th – 21st August [total $750]. This duration coincided with my birthday, my partner had also travelled all the way from England so that we could celebrate this occasion together. We hired a car from Toronto and drove the three hours North to Georgian Bay, only to discover that we also needed to book a remarkably expensive $120 water taxi- that took less than 10 minutes each way- + $10/day parking charge (total additional marina charge: $160) to get to the yurt- this is scant detail in the yurt’s advertisement that is easily missed by prospective paying guests. On arrival at the yurt (Woods bay Lodge) we were met by the host, Karen. There was a limited amount of expected hospitable greeting/pleasantries exchanged and, on reflection, it was a rather transactional approach lacking in expected friendliness. As we were new to the region we asked a number of questions including whether there were bears in the vicinity, the only reply was “to keep the lid on the bins” which we did observe. On viewing the tent-like yurt, which was below our expectations (we have stayed in other yurts throughout the world) my jet-lagged partner asked about the lack of light control i.e a means of controlling the brightness from a sunlight in the yurt, which was mocked and undermined by the host, stating: “you’re in the woods now, man!” somewhat humiliated and undermined we left our questions at that. The duration of the stay was relatively pleasant with very little to no interaction from the host, Karen. List of recommendations to the host: • Improve quality of information on website to include, but not limited to, the significant marina/water-taxi charge to get to site; • Sincerely consider, as host, to utilizing your own boat to transport and quote paying guests a price if you chose to omit the factual water taxi charge ($120+ parking). In a similar setting in North West Europe we were offered transport by our B&B host free of charge; • Greater considerations given to interpersonal relations with paying guests- do not undermine. • Anticipate the paying guests needs- consideration should be given to such necessities as drinking water and cleaning water. Lighting facility outside the yurt could be vastly improved, especially as bathroom facilities were 30-40 m from the yurt with obstacles and snakes seen in the garden. We were not able to lock/secure the yurt that contained our valuables from the outside in the vicinity of neighbors/strangers while we were out on canoe etc. • Provide suitable bear-friendly garbage disposal facilities adjacent to paying guests accommodation i.e the yurt. • Clarification on what a $75 cleaning charge includes, i.e Air BnB states: “ You can charge a cleaning fee and use the extra money to pay for cleaning supplies or hire a professional cleaning service. Leave cleaning supplies in your space, so your guests...

We are very thankful that over the many years of sharing our property with guests, we have not had visitors like Elaine and her partner. My review of them was very brief in order to be amicable. In light of Elaine’s review, I will address each of her points. To be clear, I am also a very well educated professional, who choses to share our beautiful Georgian Bay property with others so that they might enjoy the incredible beauty of the Bay. I will address each of Elaine’s comments as follows: Elaine was made aware of the water taxi during our pre-booking correspondence (July 19th), and was given the information to contact the marina directly. We do this so that guests can ask the questions that they wish to and book the taxi according to their arrival date and time. The water taxi is a wonderful option for people to experience this area and provides access to an area of the world that would otherwise not be accessible for guests. We are thankful for it! Upon arrival (after correspondence with them on that date and accommodating their changing/late arrival time), I met Elaine and her partner at the dock to welcome them. As with each of our guests, I walked around with them to orient the to the property and the yurt. I answered all of their questions, and I told them about the recent bear on the property and the subsequent need to keep the lids on the garbage can. The “tent-like” yurt that they are referring to is a brand new YURTA built upon a full foundation with a covered porch. It is an excellent quality, authentic yurt and was purchased after two years of research. All of the furnishings, in keeping with the rest of our buildings are of high quality and construction. We provided brand new linens, bedding, towels and hand towels. The yurt and washroom were professionally cleaned prior to their arrival and were extremely clean (as is our private summer home and two cottages). Our grounds keeper also keeps the property and private beaches (yes, they had a private beach), beautifully. When asked if the dome had a covering, I responded that it didn’t and my comment about being in the wilderness was certainly not said in the manner that Elaine stated. As indicated in our Airbnb listing, we welcome our guests and then are available, if need be. We respect their privacy. I was on the property and communicated with Elaine (responding to her texts) a number of times during her stay regarding additional water, their canoe trip, and their request to stay an additional night. I suspect that the “difficulty” she had communicating with me was when I did not respond right away to her request for an umbrella to take on their canoe ride. As for the canoe, my husband interacted with them also, showing them that they needed to face the same way in the canoe (not facing each other) in order to paddle. When they did not return for several hours (we were concerned that they were lost), my husband went out in the boat to search for them. I reached out by text and Elaine responded that they were ok and they did return safely. I didn’t tell them that my husband had been searching for them for 1/2 hour to ensure their safety. There is a full stand up water cooler in the yurt. We just ask that our guests let us know when they need more water. Elaine did that and more water was provided right away. We are surrounded by water, and we provide an exterior hose, dish washing basin, and environmentally friendly dish soap to rinse and clean dishes as you would if you were camping. Following each rental, we wash the dishes thoroughly in the lodge and replace them for the next guests. Glamping is glamorous camping and as such we do not provide exterior lighting. We asked if they had flash lights and we keep a light on in the bathroom hallway for navigation. We are in the heart of the Massasauga Provincial Park and as such consider additional lightning as “light pollution.” We can provide a key for the yurt, and would have gladly, however we are in an area where this is just not the norm in cottage country, and certainly not in our area. All they needed to do was ask! A bear friendly garbage can with lid was provided in the dining tent area (away from the yurt). Finally, we are not in a “remote location.” We are located in the heart of the Massasauga Provincial Park, the largest freshwater archipelago on the planet (30,000 islands), an UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and one of the the planets “Amazing Places.” It is in an area of expensive cottages and island properties, of which ours is one of them! The comment that there is “little to do” is completely uneducated and unknowledgeable. In conclusion, it is worth noting that Elaine and her partner chose to stay an extra night at our property, paying the same nightly rate (as discussed and agreed upon), and making arrangements to extend their car rental. Unfortunately, Elaine chose to leave a spiteful review following her departure because I was extremely upset with the condition that they left our yurt in. They left the yurt a mess, not swept, open beers in the fridge, all their garbage in the yurt and the outside garbage, their dirty dishes in the dining tent, and a dirty frying pan ($100 frying pan of which they left damaged), on the outdoor propane stove. Elaine’s comments regarding my “use of language” is also misleading. I was very displeased with the mess and garbage they left and could not believe how disrespectful they were as guests leaving our property, and that is what I communicated to her. All of our guests pay a cleaning fee (standard in cottage country), and yet they are respectful and leave our property as they found it (we have MANY repeat guests). It is unfortunate that Elaine and her partner made their way to this piece of paradise. These two were literally the dirtiest, disrespectful guests that we have had on our property in 17 years!
