4 DAYS AT THIS PLACE..WE WON'T BE BACK
-Extremely dangerous deep drop off gravel/sand road to enter with only room for 1 vehicle which is a major problem when this is the only road to enter & exit-this should be advised on their site.
-at check-in we were told there was a price increase & although booked & deposit paid we had to pay the higher price. Nice time to tell people when Mgmt had our email & could have had the courtesy to advise us earlier.
-We ordered & paid for 2 bundles of wood & had to go back to the office to remind them because it hadn't been delivered
-The Management has no idea about the hiking trails etc they advertise & what this place has to offer. we asked questions & their only response is "I've been told" & when you go get back to us & let us know what is was like. Isn't it their job to know what this place has to offer, maybe they should try experiencing the hikes & lookouts so they can speak like they know what is is they manage.
-stayed in Hals Cabin..dirty dirty dirty. The fridge has hard whatever caked on the inside shelves, splatter all over the plug area between counter & stove. The worst was finding a pair of mens dirty underwear in the bedroom in the corner, if you doubt this Mgmt go out to the back deck look on the left side under the bdrm window you'll find them there, they were picked up with the fireplace shovel & thrown out.
-The place was a mouse playground at night running the kitchen table, counters etc & snakes visited us via a hole in the washroom (lower left if in the shower & lower rgt if entering the shower) I stuffed the hole with kitchen brillo pads.Go ahead Mgmt go look it'll still be there. The cottages have been allowed to go into disrepair, are in need maintenance & a good clean.
Blue Lake is more like a small pond. We are outdoor enthusists, campers & have rented many cottages across Canada, we weren't expecting the Ritz only cleanliness. Thanks goodness we brought our own dishes, pots & utensils.
The sign in the cottage says leave the cottage as you found it or your visa will be charged...WE ARE SO SORRY BUT, WE HAD TO CLEAN & COULDN'T LEAVE THE DIRTY MENS UNDERWEAR IN THE BEDROOM!!!!
ON THE POSITIVE, the weather was great & the view from the lookout was spectacular & as usual we enjoyed our family time !!!
HOME SWEET HOME !!!
