Property
Happiness Haven is a great place and suitable for a large family or several families travelling together as the lower level is relatively self-contained with 2 doubles and a full bath and separate access-also excellent for surly teenagers. The home is beautifully decorated and well equipped-thoughtful things like a slow cooker, binoculars, good barbecue, lots of towels, super large washer dryer. Very bright with beautiful big windows and a huge deck with glass panels for a really great lake views. Everything works, and works well. Everything was super clean and well kept. My husband is really allergic to cats and I think the hosts have 4 but Mark had no symptoms all week so the cleaner is really doing a good job. The property is well maintained, grass cut, weeds pulled-nice trees so lots of shade at all times of the day. There's a big graveled driveway and space for more vehicles by the garage-good directions and good signage. Smith's Bay is pretty quiet and well-protected from the big lake so the swimming and kayaking were as good as we've had in the county. Water off the end of the dock is maybe 6 foot deep so it's likely possible to have a bigger boat in at the marina around the corner and tie up at the property. We didn't have much luck from the dock but saw people fishing from boats so there must be something out there. The Duke of Marysburg Pub is walk-able and the food was really good-they have music too on weekends. Lots of farm stands, County Cider, Waupoos Winery etc, down that way and closer to Picton than I would have thought so there is lots to do. We also really appreciate the Sandbanks pass. Elizabeth is lovely and I think her B&B experience shows-clear expectations about garbage, closing etc. and idiot-proof instructions-cupboards are labelled,bathtub rigged so the shower curtain keeps the water in the tub, reverse osmosis water system, stable and easy to access internet. Coffee beans from County Roasters and a grinder, filters, tea and sugar complimentary-soap for the washing machine, dishwasher, etc. so no need to chase around for those bits. Really, really excellent stay!!
