This place is horrible. First time staying and I regret it so much. The cottages are in horrible shape, chipped and flaking paint, dirt and sand all over floors, screens in porch area are all cut up. We woke up to a squirrel in our porch area one morning! Completely unacceptable! The dishes were dirty as well as the table....

Hello sorry you didn't find our resort to your taste. Our cottages are older and and the outside paint may need to be redone. Our cleaners clean the cottages on Saturdays and have between 10 and 3 to get them all done. We rely on our guests to leave the dishes clean before checking out and usually they do as...

I have been to Ardagh twice now and just loved it....the fall colours are beautiful...the Cottages are comfortable and the hosts are great! During our last visit the Jays were in the playoffs and we watched the games every night on the outdoor tv by the fire! Had a great time and look forward to going back again....

We haven't been in 3 years but nothing has changed at Ardagh. Lesley and Tony are amazing hosts who go out of their way to accommodate you any way they can. Cottages are clean and comfortable and they do a nice fish fry most weeks with fresh fish caught by guests in the lakes. The kids are 10, 9 and...

Ardagh cottage resort is and has been for numerous years a wonderful place to spend a week with family. You are in a well kept cottage with access to many natural elements awaiting exploration. We tend to lean towards mid July and like to rent a boat for the week. Not only do I find all the hidden rocks, but...

We have been vacationing at Ardagh Cottage Resort for many years and love the relaxation and fishing opportunities it has to offer. Lovesick Lake is a great place to go kayaking or canoeing which Ardagh Cottages also offers at no extra charge. The cottages are neat and clean and offer a great view of the lake. We love the screened...

Location was gorgeous. Cottages were filthy, we had to scrub before we could move in. Kitchen cupboards had mould, mouse poop, some of the dishes were dirty. The website states the cottages don't have TVs for "serenity", and yet every evening the owners had their outdoor TV blaring until after midnight. Property, while scenic, was messy, stuff strewn all over...

I have been there numerous times, very nice hosts, very welcoming, clean cottages, and an amazing view of the lake from the porches. Love that the screened in porch was available. Fire pits at every cottage, barbecues at every cottage. Love my stays there :):)
