Review of B. . E.'s stay in Jul 2022

starstarstarhalf starno star

Guest Comments: To start we were given the wrong entry code for cottage and had to wait outside for a call back with correct code. The cottage itself was fine including beds, bathrooms etc. however it was very odd to find only one standard size coffee mug and only 2 glass wine glasses for our use. We would have appreciated having access to cushions for the outdoor metal chairs but all the storage bins were locked up. Lots of the info on the cottage website is not up to date (playground equipment is now only a swing set) or misleading ("sunroom" is just a small rustic porch only good for storage). The well water at this place has a very high mineral content coating virtually all dishes, glasses and the fridge ice maker was non functional because of this. I also had to clean the dishwasher filter because it was not cleaning adequately. The inflatable SUP was not usable due to poor inflation. The paddles on the air hockey table are broken and the pool table is not level. Yes, I do have high expectations/standards, consistent with the money we pay for these rentals. I would hope to see more honest reviews on your website instead of almost exclusively 5 star reviews.

CCR Reply: We wanted to reach out to you regarding your survey feedback and thank you for taking the time to detail your experience. We will take ownership for the issues you mentioned regarding the inadequate supply of glassware, access to outdoor cushions, lack of playground equipment, state of the sunroom, broken air hockey paddles and pool table level. Without you having mentioned these things, we would not be able to ensure they are dealt with moving forward. Of course, it is unfortunate the rental was not prepared in these ways for your family's stay. We were aware of the inflatable SUP loosing air at times, so the Owners leave a pump that can be used to re-inflate. Perhaps you didn't see it there, which is too bad. We will have to make it obvious to guests of it's location. Quality of well water is something that is out of our control. It does run through a filtration system to ensure it is of best quality. As for the entry code, we apologize for the inconvenience of having to wait for the new code. It was a detail that was changed last minute and we must have missed communicating that to you. I hope do that future rentals are more to your expectations. We love to hear from our guests while at the cottage and do all we can to assist with issues while you are there. Please don't hesitate to call us in the future, our contact number is on the fridge and in the welcome book for the cottages we manage. Otherwise, the Owners would be glad to assist and their number will be listed. All the best, Team CCR

Guest Comments: The cottage was exactly what we were hoping for. It was very spacious and had everything we needed. We spent 90% of our time outside where the lake was amazingly swimable and having the beach area is great for the kids. We're planning on coming back to the same cottage again next year!
