Cottage Renal, Contact, Reservation, and Payment Information
ALL guests require a deposit of 30% of the pre-tax cottage rental fee to confirm the booking. Additional expenses incurred during the stay, including charges due to property damage/ excessive mess, are to be paid in full upon departure. Personal cheques are accepted for deposit only. Payments can be made by cash in Canadian Funds, Visa, Master Card, Interac, or e-transfer.
13% HST applies to all prices as outlined on our Pricing Information page unless the stay exceeds 30 consecutive nights.
Vacation Rental Cancellation and Refund Policy
More than 30 days’ notice: Entire deposit will be refunded
Between 30 days and 14 days’ notice: There will be a charge of one night’s stay (as per the price list)
We will keep the 30% deposit if the reservation is cancelled within 13 days before the scheduled vacation date, but we will allow you to use half of that amount (15% of the full stay) towards another booking in the same calendar year.

We market ourselves as a small, quiet camp, where the property, beach, etc. are shared by a predictable number of cottage guests. Your cottage has a maximum capacity of 6 people for a 3 bedroom, and 4 people for a 2 bedroom. We want your stay to be an enjoyable, memorable one, and understand that you may like to host an occasional day visitor from another camp, or who may be passing through the area during your stay. All guests are responsible for their visitors registering with the office, with advance notice appreciated. Visitors must vacate the property by 11:00pm. Because parking space is limited, any second guest vehicle or visitor vehicle will be subject to a $5.00 daily parking fee.
We regret that we do not accept pets. There is a boarding facility in the area. Please do an internet search for a kennel in the area. We recommend searching areas on your travel route, so your animal’s accommodation will be taken care of prior to arrival.
Due to the highway 4-laning, we do not have a gas station in Alban. We recommend fueling up just south of Key River (Gen 7) left side of the road while heading north 69. The nearest gas station our location is in Noelville, approximately 15 minutes East of us. The Esso gas station also has a fine selection of fishing tackle and gift items. There is also a laundromat, church, Home Hardware, restaurant, LCBO, Beer Store and Pharmacy in Noelville.
Alban has a bank, LCBO, hardware store, Church, and small grocery/ variety store.
The snowmobile trail runs on the river directly in front of our property.
I’ll send you an email when we receive your deposit. Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions.
We’re looking forward to meeting you or seeing you again!
