Pros: Cottage is very clean and comfortable. We loved sitting by the fireplace on the cold nights and watching movies. We did not have a fire but there was a great set up outside with lots of wood. The grounds are kept well and our dog was able to play in the yard with us and really enjoyed running around.

Cons: The cottage is a 20 minute walk to the lake up and down hills. We had an SUV and had to put the kayaks in the trunk with the seats down. This was a lot of work to get the kayaks down to the lake and we only did it one day. We were going to take the paddle boards out the next day, but you have to spray them off before they go into the car because they are covered with tree droppings, so didn't use the water toys again.
We were sent an email a week prior to our rental informing us that the water was tested and came back with coliform in the well. We were unable to brush our teeth or wash dishes with the cottage water. We felt like we were in Mexico or camping and this was not what we had in mind for a relaxing cottage stay. Kim left us two 4L jugs of water which was thoughtful, but not nearly enough to make up for this frustration. We ended up leaving the cottage on the Wednesday of our week because of this. Upon emailing her our frustration we were basically told "too bad."
The cottage was also not equipped with your basic cooking needs. Only salt and pepper, no additional spices or cooking spray are available for you.

Owner response:
Hi Shannon,

Thank-you for taking the time to provide your positive & negative feedback.

We do take great pride in the job that we do to provide an enjoyable cottage rental & great customer service & I think all of our previous reviews speak for themselves.

Again, we do apologize that you felt that the well water was such an issue during your stay or that you had to take the time to write a negative review regarding this but we really do feel that we addressed the issue in every way we possibly could. We informed you of the situation, (which was completely out of our control). We had the water treated as soon as we possibly could prior to your stay. As mentioned to you in my e-mail response, we were unable to have enough time to get a well water sample to the lab in time for your stay as our cottage turnovers are on Saturdays & the lab is not open these days. We disagree that you were told "too bad" regarding your frustration,(as those words were certainly not used) however I did respond to you that we were sorry that you felt inconvenienced & that we did everything that we could to address the situation. You were even provided a discounted weekly rate from the beginning. There is no possible way that we in good conscience could not have informed you of the water situation & to take the precautions advised by public health as we hold our guests health in high importance. This concern of the inconvenience regarding the water for you our stay, was never brought up prior to your stay.

Regarding the water crafts, upon booking, all our guests are clearly informed that we are not waterfront, so it is known at the time of your booking that you will need to transport these to the lake. Our water crafts are stored outside, so it is completely impossible & unreasonable to guarantee that there would be no "tree droppings" from the outdoor elements. We are a cottage on a wooded lot.

Regarding the kitchen needs, we do not & have never provided kitchen needs such as spices &/or cooking oils, this is not something that is promised to you upon your booking. There is however everything that a kitchen requires to have available to you that you would need.

We do provide all the information required to you in your rental agreement prior to your booking, so our guests are fully ware of what you are responsible to bring prior to your booking.

It is certainly clear that our cottage was not the type of place that you were really looking for & was not a good fit for either of us as we truly feel that your expectations were very unrealistic.

We stand by the rental that we provide & the quality of the experience to our guests & we feel that you were very unfair in your review, especially since all our guests are provided with all the information that they require prior to confirming a booking, so that they can make an informed choice on whether our rental is the right fit for them.

Thanks again for the feedback & take care.

Shaune & Kim

We enjoyed a wonderful getaway at EKKS Cottage for my Husbands Birthday weekend.
We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and more!! There is a large variety of movies for rainy days as well.
The abundance of firewood for our campfires was easily accessible and plentiful. We enjoyed the walk to Glamour lake as it is a peaceful place with hardly any traffic to be seen.
If you are looking for a peaceful getaway to unwind EKKS is the perfect place!!!
My Husband and I highly recommend EKKS to everyone, it was well worth it especially during the turbulent year we've had. We can't wait for the opportunity to visit again!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at EKKS cottage. Booking and arranging with Kim was a delight. We had all the information about the cottage and area well before our arrival. The cottage had everything we needed for our perfect getaway ?unplug? weekend. The information book was very helpful as were our correspondence with Kim.

The cottage is very clean, very quiet, and has a very cozy / comforting feel. The kitchen has everything ( and more) than we required. Has an enormous amount of DVDs and plenty of board games etc. Was even happy to see a cribbage board with cards as we had forgotten ours.

We enjoyed driving around the area, trail walks, outside fire while grilling steaks on the provided BBQ on the back deck.

We can't say enough good things about EKKS cottage. EVERYTHING was fantastic from arranging, arriving, and sadly departing.

We are definitely recommending to our friends. We can't wait to go back.

EKKS Cottage is a nature lover's delight.
There are beautiful lakes a short distance from the cottage right at the end of the road with a quint beach a 2 boat launches.
The cottage was very clean and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable and cozy stay.
Kim's communication was very prompt and informative and professional.
The cottage "Survival Guide" was very appreciated when seeking activities in the area.
I will definitley recommend to family and friends who are looking to rent a cottage. A 5 star cottage stay!

We TRULY enjoyed every moment of our stay at Ekks Cottage. From my very first phone call with Kim to my email exchanges after check out, Kim was incredibly kind, accommodating and informative. It was evident that she wanted us to have a great time away- and that we did! My husband and I visited the cottage with our two small children (2 & 4) in November. The kids were crazy about the twin beds in the loft, the chalkboard, toys, great DVD selection and games. Even in the cold of the late Fall, the cottage was so cozy and warm with a large gas fireplace that heated the cottage very well. We were able to walk the property and surrounding area every morning with our coffee and enjoyed a backyard fire every day, with so much privacy and tranquility. There's lots to do within a short drive- definitely check out the Wolf Conservatory and Sculpture Forest with or without children. We certainly felt at home away from home at Ekks Cottage. Thank you again so much!
