It was like opening the doors to cottage heaven. From the moment we walked through the doors, we were all in love. There were a total of 7 guests (4 adults and 3 children) and room for many more. Everything about this cottage felt warm, from the beach decor, the beautiful harvest table that seats 12 to the extremely spacious rooms ~ it was like no other cottage I've rented before. The small details, like hotel style amenities that were perfectly scented, like the great outdoors and the warmth of the cottage when we walked in because the owners remotely turned up the heat before we arrived. How nice is that?
Miranda and Carlo made booking so easy, they were extremely accommodating and genuinely wanted to make sure our vacation was perfect. The cottage was spotless and well cared for. Pride of ownership is evident, the kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook any meal. The cottage boasts 3 bedrooms, the master was just perfect, but I must admit my favorite room was the bedroom off the loft. I felt like Goldilocks and the three bears when I walked in the room...what bed to choose? They were all so comfortable...I am used to renting cottages with mattresses that were handed down through generations, not these ones! Pillow-top dreams were had by all!! We are not big on winter, but how could you resist the beauty of northern Ontario? We enjoyed tobogganing, ping-pong and air hockey tournaments in the large games room located in the basement. Sipping hot chocolate around the wood stove and playing board games in the evening, while the kids curled up on the couch to watch a movie. The rear of the cottage is all windows which allows you to enjoy the beauty of snow covered trees and untouched landscapes. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone that seeks a home away from home vacation. Once you experience the comfort of Wood Lake cottage you may never want to leave. I actually wish this was my little piece of heaven, but its not, so renting it will have to do!! We can't wait to rent this cottage again in the summer months, so we can experience it all over again!!
