Windermere Cottages has a long history of providing family vacations in Stanhope. We have a combination of one, two and three bedroom cottages located on a 3-acre site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Our cottages are clean and well maintained. The units have recently been updated and redecorated and contain everything you need for a comfortable stay next to the beach. Our goal is to ensure that guests have a great famiy vacation where they can relax in a quiet setting, enjoy the beach, campfires, the National Park and surrounding attractions.
In peak season (July & August) reservations are strongly recommended.
Cancellation of a booking prior to May 1 will result in a full refund. After May 1, refunds are granted when the unit is re-booked and paid for. Any and all cancellations are subject to a forfeit of $50.00 from the deposit. Purchasing trip cancellation insurance should be considered.
Our location is a mere 350 metres (380 yards) from the sea-shore and you can see the water from Windermere.
The entrance to Windermere is located inside the National Park. We are situated in the Stanhope Beach area of the Park.
If you are a guest arriving at Windermere, the National Park will allow you to enter and leave without paying the Park fee. If you park your vehicle on National Park property, you are expected to have a paid-for pass so most guests leave their car at Windermere and make the short walk to the beach.
Other than food and drink, we try to supply most of your needs for your stay. Dishes, cutlery, pots & pans, toaster, coffee maker and propane barbecues are in all of the cottages. We provide linens, blankets, pillows and toweling for each guest. We do not supply beach towels.
No. Linens are supplied and are replaced weekly. If your visit extends beyond 7 days, we will refresh your cottage (by request). We have new on-site coin laundry facilities.
We have two wells on the property that are tested regularly for purity and bacteria. Approval for consumption has been awarded, year after year.
No. We regret that we had to change our policy a number of years ago because of liability concerns, it became necessary to exclude pets.
