Reviews

Another fantastic week staying at Hartley Bay Marina cottages - June 2015

"My brother found Hartley Bay Marina (HB) on the internet when we were looking for cottages to rent for a few days of family fishing on the French River in 2013. The cottages were basic, but the scenery looked amazing and the marina looked like it would accomodate our boats quite nicely. Most importantly, it looked very accessible for our 80 year old father who has walking/mobility issues. Little did we know, that once we explained dad's issue with walking long distances that the marina staff would ensure he had a golf cart to drive from the cabin to the marina and back again. Oh, so appreciated!!!!! Now, after going back in 2014 and 2015 we have our week booked already for next year. I should add that in 2013 we had 12 people, last year 16 and this year 18 (all adults). The 2 big cottages have served us well, and if one of the small 4 person cottages have been available, we have used it as well.

The cottages are well equiped and CLEAN! Just remember you are in the bush! If you need it, bring it in! We noticed this year that renovations have been done with flooring and bathrooms and we have been told more renos are coming. I can say from personal experience that if something is not quite right that the Palmers and their staff will do what it takes to rectify the situation.

We have had much success fishing here - everything from pan fish to pickerel, pike, bass and muskie. One of the reasons we like HB so much, is that you have such an array of habitats to fish: tall grass/reeds, fast water, quiet coves, deep water and underwater structure. Because of the landscape of the French River waterways you will always find a spot to tuck away and fish if the wind is blowing a little too hard for your liking in the open places.

Thank you James, Margaret and team....see you next June!"
