Large, pretty and isolated cottage, close enough to other interests in PEC. Property had deer, wild turkeys, frogs, chipmunks +++, ducks and more. It was a comfortable stay.

Great house, incredible secluded location. You are alone in a beautiful bird observation territory. You need to drive 7 minutes into the forest in your private location. The wifi worked very well, the owner had changed the system. The new outdoor screened patio is so perfect to eat outside and be safe for mosquitos attack. The decoration is a bit old fashion. So don't expect a modern cottage, but beside that, you can expect a wonderful stay in the nature. I would go back anytime and refer the cottage to friends and family

Very great cottage, close to the Sandbanks Park. Feel like you are alone in the world. You hear the birds, the horses, the frogs from the nature. The house is very confortable and perfect for a family of 4 or 5.

The team at Sandbanks Vacations were great! They were very prompt, professional and friendly in their responses and I never once doubted that we would have an awesome stay. Myself and a group of friends and a couple dogs really enjoyed an extra long weekend here, over Canada Day. We had everything and more at Black River Cottage; the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could ever need to cook. It was very clean and we LOVED using the BBQ. The dishwasher made clean up at a breeze! Although the decor is maybe slightly dated, that did not stop us from still having fun. We spent the majority of the time outside anyways! We had a small hiccup with the wifi but the team was very on the ball in helping us figure out what was wrong. The bedrooms met all our needs, bathrooms were very clean. We didnt use the canoe or make use of the parks pass but we wish we had, so much cool stuff all included! The dogs also enjoyed themselves by jumping off the dock to cool off, and they loved all the space to run. Its secluded and quiet but a short drive away to Picton where you can get groceries etc. We truly had an amazing stay and are looking forward to coming back! Thank you!

Will definitely recommend for nature and adventure lovers. The place is very rustic and relaxing. Lots of bugs so bring bug spray for sure, it is common in the summer to have lots of bugs so we understand. The driveway was a bit long and some parts were steep and it was in the description so watch out for that. All in all very good place to get away

We had a fantastic two days at Black River Cottage. It's a beautiful retreat, surrounded by woods and wildflowers. The cottage itself is comfortable, with plenty of space to sprawl out and read or play board games. The river is a calm and easy paddle and was great fun to explore in the canoe. Between hanging out on the property and enjoying the beach at Sandbanks, both days could not have been fuller. And the team at Sandbanks Vacations made everything seamless excellent directions, contactless arrival, and helpful hints on what to do in the county. We can't wait to go back.

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!

Important Info about Wifi

New satellite wifi has been installed for 2020. The speed is around 10MBs/second, which is fine for Netflix, WhatsApp calls, internet browsing etc. It is recommended that guests use their Netflix on standard definition rather than high definition as it will take satellite wifi longer to buffer the movie and eats up 2.5GBs rather than 1GB for standard. Also, satellite is not so great for videoconferences as there is a delay on the two way interaction. Next year, satellite wifi speeds will pick up to between 10-25MBs/second.

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.
