We had a great time. Retired house yet close to everything. A swan family was nesting right across the river.

Our stay at Black River Cottage was outstanding. The trip began with great communication from Galen, so we had a good idea of what to expect. The cottage sits right on a beautiful river with stunning views, wildlife and the relaxing sound of a waterfall in the distance. Because the house is tucked in from the road, there are very few people around and it is very easy to relax in peace and tranquility. The surrounding forest is ideal for hiking and bird watching, and made the cottage feel quite secluded, even though it's a just quick drive away from all the amenities of Picton. The house itself is very clean, well-equipped and well-designed. The bedroom areas feel like a quintessential cozy cottage, while the living room is spacious, bright and airy. We spent a lot of time on the dock snacking on amazing butter tarts and fresh cheese curds from the nearby Black River Cheese Co. We would return to this cottage in a heartbeat!

Overall the experience was great, we could enjoy 6 days with our 6 year old daughter and two dogs. Easy walking around the property where the dogs and kid enjoyed running without leash! Owner/estate agent in charge always nice and available for our questions. Regarding views from the house, we were expecting more for a views to a river. Anyway, we loved Prince Edward County and the sunset in Sandbanks Provincial Park!

Special Notes

Outside the Cottage there is an outdoor wooden patio facing the river complete with a gas BBQ. A dock suitable for launching canoes and kayaks. Although the cottage does have wifi it can be spotty, so be prepared to unplug and unwind. A variety of maintained nature trails exist throughout the old growth forest for guests to enjoy. One of these passes near a Bald Eagle platform that was built at the top of a 70' white pine tree and which continues to hopefully await tenants.

 For those wishing to book in spring or fall, make sure that your car has underneath as the driveway and it can be quite bumpy. We also recommend arriving at the property before dark as it's a long unlit drive into the property.

A fee of $50 per small pet or $100 per large pet is charged at this home. Please ASK before bringing a pet.
