*** Cottage Owners Please Note ***

We are a family oriented rental agency !!!
August and September is the best time to list your cottage for rental
with this agency in preparation for rentals the following summer.
However, we take on new cottages all year round. During the winter
months we can only photograph the interior and hopefully you can
provide summer pictures of the exterior. If this is not possible,
contact us during the winter and make an appointment with us to
view your cottage in spring as soon as everything begins to bud.

Here is what some of our cottage owners are saying about us !!! _______________________________________________

We have been using WRD for 15 years and couldn't be happier with
their service. We live overseas so we rely heavily on the WRD family
to take good care of our cottage and our renters. Any issue that arises
is taken care of promptly and professionally. Trust is essential in this
type of situation and quite honestly, without the exceptional care and
support shown by Bill and Fran and the WRD clan, we likely wouldn't
rent out at all. They know us, they know our cottage, they know the
type of renters we want, then know how to resolve any emergency
we've had over the years. We trust them.

Our first experience with WRD was 19 years ago when we rented a cottage from
Bill and his team. We utilized their services for 4 years while we determined
what type of cottage/lake location we wanted to purchase. During that time
WRD helped us successfully find several cottages for our family to enjoy.
We finally bought our cottage on Lake Kashagawigamog (Kash 55) in 2003
and over the following 13 years continued to renovate and update it and
enjoyed countless memories with family and friends. As our children grew older
the cottage was being used less and less so we decided to offer it for rent.
We didn't hesitate to contact Bill at WRD as our rental agency given our experience
we had as a renters ourselves. From the beginning Bill provided exceptional
service providing recommendation on what renters were looking for and to what
little extras we needed to provide. Fran and Rita whom we have had most of our
dealings with as far as rentals, have been outstanding. Always quick to return our
phone calls or e-mail and do not hesitate to follow up when we had questions.
All the staff at the Agency have always been professional in our dealings.
Since joining WRD we have been fully booked during the summer months as early
as the end of January for the past 2 years. As well to our pleasant surprise we
have had several winter rentals, now 2 years in a row. Without hesitation we would recommend WRD Cottage Rental Agency for anyone looking to put
their cottage up for rent. ___________________________________________________________

"For the past 8 years we have used WRD to rent our cottage in Haliburton.
Our experience has been outstanding. Bill and the staff at WRD are most
helpful, courteous and effective at securing qualified rentals. When we
first decided to rent our cottage we had some concerns as to how it
would work out. We have now had over 50 rentals and have been very
pleased with the marketing of our cottage, the suitability of renters
and the overall rental experience. Great work WRD!"

"Six years ago, we purchased a cottage with the intention of renting it and
chose WRD Cottage Rental Agency to represent us. We are happy to say
that we have been fully rented each and every summer as well as many
winter rentals. We have been so pleased with the performance and service
we received from WRD, that we have purchased another rental cottage and
with the help of WRD, we are confident it will be a success as well."

"Our cottage is our special place, and the idea of renting it out was
uncomfortable for us. We have been with WRD for 11 years now and all
our fears have waned. Now we are happy to share our cottage with
approved renters from WRD. They all have been easy to deal with,
respectful of the property and leave it as they found it, if sometimes not
a little better. The staff at WRD are great and there has never been a
delay in payment or any issue that we could not address within a
timely manner. You guys are great, keep up the extra effort."


"The management and staff at WRD are absolutely the BEST!
My husband and I were new to renting and Bill and his staff
helped properly represent our property and prepare it
for happy renters.  They reviewed the property in person,
provided guidance on rental rates, and also provided feedback
to us when we were looking at improving it.  We always got paid on
time and always got feedback on what our cottage might need
when we asked for it. Fran and Darlene are excellent and have
always communicated well on all matters. This will be our 13th
rental season with WRD and our cottage has been heavily
booked each season. We have also made use of the WRD
cottage change-over service as we live in Toronto, and that
has been flawless. I would strongly recommend WRD to anyone
looking at renting out their cottage property.
You will not be disappointed."
