Guest Comments: In these trying times of Covid we were dealing with a professional group of people at Cottage Care Rentals and they kept us in touch every step of the way as to whether there would be a rental and what our options were. We cannot thank you enough and we knew that when you deal with people who care about us like this the rental has to be perfect. The cottage met all our expectations and in fact was much more than what the pictures in the ad showed. Thank you to the Cottage Care team and the owner of Cavendish Cove Cottage

CCR Reply: The thanks goes to you for your appreciation and kindness. It is absolutely our pleasure to have helped you and your family find some respite in these trying times.

Guest Comments: This cottage was wonderful to stay at! The kitchen was very well equipped, the entire cottage was very clean, beds were comfortable and the screened-in sunroom was a great place to sit at dusk when the bugs like to come out. We stayed in June so the lake traffic was relatively quiet, as were any neighbors that came up. We were looking for a quiet week away and this location was perfect! Thank you!
