Savary is amazing, but we were sadened and disapointed after having rented this cabin. There were many problems that we had not been made aware of before arriving. The roof leaks in several spots in the entryway. We arrived to a bucket of water catching some of the drips and most landing on the floor in a large puddle.
There is a serious mouse problem, with hallway corners and the lower kitchen cabinets showing ample mouse droppings. We also had to wash fresh mouse poop out of the pans in the morning. This was likely exarcerbated by the amount of food (oats) left in the cabin by others.
Many of the pillows and blankets for the bedding were rank. Thankfully, there were many to choose from and I found some that were cleaner.
The toilets were filthy and had a thick brown layer of toilet film inside. It does not seem possible that they could have been cleaned any time recently to get in that condition. I would guess a month at least since the last clean.
There was a note asking us to burn used toilet paper in the wood stove in the kitchen. The kitchen! The very idea that the ashes I cleaned out of the stove may have contained other people's used toilet paper was beyond disturbing.
Dressers were missing handles, a huge dog bed in the living room covered my children in hair, a leak from a bathroom flooded the hall one day, there was almost no room for us to put our groceries - no pantry and barely any cupboard space, a back room packed with building and other supplies of the owners - and a sliding glass door leading to an unbuilt balcony off the master bedroom, resulting in a 4-5 foot drop added an unexpected hazzard for our young children.
There are many wonderful places to stay on Savary and I have been in many of them myself. We were very disapointed with this cabin. These problems do not seem to be new as most of the families we spoke to on the beach knew of the cabin and had heard many complaints from renters over the years. It seems to have a bad reputation.
When I contacted the owner, my concerns were dismissed.
We would not recommend this cabin to anyone. I would give 0 stars if it were possible.
