Large secluded inside and outside, with everything you need. Very considerate and welcoming owner. The welcome note, snacks, soft drinks, and city water are very thoughtful and touching. Also all the various random stuff (books, toys, household items) you would find in a house really make you feel like you are staying in your own family cottage!—Yong W. (Aug. 2019)

Awesome place. Basic amenities but everything you need! Perfect location on the lake with badminton courts, and kayaks. Good value! Would definitely recommend for a group getaway. —Katie L. (Aug. 2018)

Thank you Eric for hosting us at your beautiful cottage!! We are very pleased to find everything so organized and ready for use. We had forgotten mil and were glad you had some. We finished most of your chips too. We have tried to leave your place as we found it. Hopefully its as you remember you left it too! Thanks once again. —Sumit (Aug. 2018)

Thank you so much for an amazing cottage getaway. From the moment we walked in we felt really welcomed. We appreciate the snacks and drinks you left fo rus. We really enjoyed crystal lake and the water is really clear and clean! We didn’t want to leave the water and deck at all. Your responsiveness was very quick and helpful and enjoyed every moment of it. Thank you again and hope to come and stay at your beautiful property again. —Jose and friends (Aug. 2018)

Thank you for sharing your cottage with us! We enjoyed the natural surroundings and had a great time at the dock! Also thanks for the welcome snacks they were much appreciated. We did our best to leave the cottage as we found it. We had brought the garbage to the dump, only to find out that it was closed (we left Friday pm), we also fot the satelite tv up and working. Thank you again, we are leaving with great memories. —The Zunigas (July 2018)

Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your beautiful cottage, we enjoyed every minute of our mini vacation, we wre able to go out on the water, we definitely enjoyed the sun, not so much of the mosquitos. Thanks to your lovely home, we are hoping to do this more often. We made wonderful memories, watching a great selection of movies! The view is breattaking, we apprecite it, hope to be back soon. Best Regards. —Carla (June 2018)

We absolutely loved the peaceful privacy that this cottage brought us! We spent most of our time on the dock and loved that it was safe for our girls to swim in. The cottage was clean especially the kitchen and bathroom and we appreciated the welcome snack basket! The cottage was well equipped with toys, inflatables, life jackets and a kayak. We loved the feeling of being immersed in a very natural environment. We have left with some wonderful memories. —Lizette Z. (July 2018)

We had a wonderful time at Eric Polcin’s cottage because he made us feel so welcome through his surprise treats basket, his personalized note, and all his water crafts. We readily convey to all our friends and family to check out Polcin’s Pad if they want to enjoy the pleasures of the outdoors, but more importantly, if they want to have a relaxing time at a cottage that has been maintained with such love and care that visitors like us can feel the warmth.  We hope to return to Polcin’s Pad in the future. Thank you to your wonderful staff for all your timely assistance with the booking.  —Ellen Y. (July 2018)

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage for the week.  It was everything we had hoped for.  I love that he property is left as natural as possible and that the cottage is full of artifacts.  it felt like I was back home!  We had a great time at the lake; the water is so nice.  We had a drive around Kinmount and Minden.  We played a few games of badminton and got bitten a lot.  We loved every bit of it!  Again, we had a great time and will definitely be back if we have the chance. —Marie & Brian (July 2017)

Thank you for allowing us to use your property over the long weekend.  We had a great time.  You have everything one could ask for when trying to escape the city for the weekend.  It was great to have 2 fridges.  That really helped and wa very convenient.  All in all we had a great time and would recommend your property to friends. —Justin V. (July 2017)

I was fortunate enough to cross paths with the owner upon my arrival. He was very friendly and extremely helpful in showing me everything I needed to know about the cottage. The cottage itself was exactly what we were hoping for. Clean, ‘cottagey’ (not so modern that you felt like you were really up north) secluded to offer privacy, beautiful waterfront and everyone had a great time. The water toys and games that were there also offered a lot of additional fun and I will definitely be renting this property in the future. Again,  thank you for opening your home to us. —Lisa (August 2017)

A week at Polcin’s Pad was not enough! Thank you Eric for making us feel so welcomed! It is perfect for someone who is looking for a cottage and not “a house on the lake”. It’s got character, and seems to be full of memories. The cottage had everything we needed and more. The property is beautiful, well-maintained and left as natural  as possible surrounded by beautiful trees. The access to the lake is great; it is sandy, private, the water is warm and the dock is facing west for beautiful sunsets. There is nothing negative to say about Polcin’s Pad! We will definitely be back. Thank you! —Marie (July 2017)
