Rental FAQ's

1.      Is there a dock to tie up our boat? There is a dock, but whether or not it gets put in is totally dependent on how high the water is. This will be determined by the end of June, and is not guaranteed to be put in before July, if at all. Having said that, there’s only been one year in the last 16 that it hasn’t been put in.

2.      Is there somewhere to launch our boat? The marina in town is probably the best bet. There is another boat launch in Sunbreaker Cove, but is harder to find, and about the same distance from the cabin as the marina.

3.      Where is the cabin located? In the Birchcliff Summer Village, on the other side (North) of the lake from town.

4.      Is the beach private? Yes. It is not a public beach.

5.      Is the beach sandy? Not usually, but this too is dependent on how high the water is. We do have a man-made sand ‘pit’. That is adequate for children to build sand castles, etc.

6.      Is the lake bottom rocky? Not usually. (Rocks get blown up in storms, so this too is dependent on circumstances.)

7.      Is the beach area safe for kids? Yes. It is (usually) really shallow in front of our cabin, for a long way!

8.      How many bedrooms? 4. Four double beds and a set of twin bunk beds. (One room has one double bed and the bunks).

9.      How many bathrooms? 2. Full bathrooms with tubs/showers.
