We had the most wonderful week at the Blue Cottage Escape. Everything was perfect – the cottage, location, property and amenities. Our ages range from 3-69 and we all enjoyed our time immensely. The cottage itself was clean, spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. It had everything you could possibly need when away from home. You could tell the owners put thought into everything there! The property was beautiful, right on the river with great swimming and fishing. We enjoyed using the paddle board and paddle boat. My kids also loved the trampoline, slides and sandy beach. The owners were great too, quick to reply with any questions we had. We had the best week away and can’t wait to return again next summer! —Christina P. (Aug 2022)


A great location for family vacation. —Jeanne (Jul/Aug 2022)


We had a fantastic time! The cottage was in pristine condition, and we greatly enjoyed our time! Excellent hosts!  We’ve enjoyed booking with you in the past, and will do so again. —Joel T. (Apr/May 2022)


We had an excellent stay at Blue Cottage Escape. KCV was great as usual, and the owners were excellent, responsive and so thoughtful! The cottage itself was perfect for us (a family of 4). So cozy, well and laid out, and very clean with everything we needed. In particular, the fireplace was outstanding on cool nights. Outside, the kids loved the trampoline and we all loved paddling the river or having dinner on the deck overlooking the river. Lots to do in the area- the cycling was fantastic and beautiful countryside. We will be back for sure- thanks for a great stay! —Dave O. (Oct. 2020)


This cottage was fantastic and the owner was so friendly and prompt with her responses. Having kayaks, a paddle board and a peddle boat was such a nice bonus and really allowed us to go out and explore the river. The neighbours were great and the cottage itself was very clean and so cute! We had such a great week here and would love to return in the future! —Carly H. (July 2020)


Blue Cottage Escape was the perfect getaway! The cottage is super cute, clean, and had great amenities. Loved the stylish decor as well. It truly felt like an escape. From the relaxing porch to the fire pit and brand new dock — everything was perfect. It was great to be able to use the kayaks and stand-up paddleboard, and the trampoline was a hit with our 9-year-old. Would definitely book again! —Jen P. (July 2020)
