"What a great get away! This charming cottage
is just perfect for couples or families."
Dining Room: When opening the blinds in the large dining room window, please guide them with your hand as they tend to get caught on the window latches. This will prevent the blinds from tearing.
The Kitchen: All dishes and cookware are provided. Full size fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and toaster are available for your use. If you spill food on the floor, it could attract ants, so please wipe up as soon as possible. Cleaning supplies are located in the lower cabinet beside the kitchen sink.
The Bathroom: Please only 1 ply toilet paper. If you need to purchase more, please buy only 1 ply as we are on a septic tank system. Please keep in mind we have a septic system.
*If it’s yellow “let it mellow” and if it is brown – “flush it down”*(Please let children know). Use waste basket for toilet paper disposal as much as possible, and do not flush unless you have to. Do not flush any feminine hygiene products and please flush the toilet before you leave.

It is a post office, variety store, movie rentals and restaurant and is also where you purchase garbage bag tags. Also carries limited groceries. The other store/restaurant is McPhersons at the corner of Highway 21 and Port Franks Road.
