Guestbook comments from the owner
From the green isles of Ireland, 19 people came to celebrate a wedding. We stayed among the three houses and will all agree that it was "paradise".

Memories, fun & laughter was had and the houses accommodated all that us Irish needed - it will certainly be a place and time we will never forget!

Fifteen family members enjoyed a very memorable week this summer at Oak Point. What a beautiful setting! The accommodations were perfect for our family of mostly teens. Six teenage girls bunked down in the Bunkie on the water. The two teenage boys loved the small Bunkie by the dock. The parents of the teens each had their own bedroom in the main cottage and Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed peace and comfort in the Art Studio cottage. We all gathered for meals and family time in the main cottage. The outdoor hot and cold shower was a real hit and well used. The boys caught enough fish for us to have a fish fry for one of our evening meals. We brought our own canoe and that gave us two canoes, two kayaks, and two paddle boats, enough to entertain everyone. The teens got some excellent pictures, posing on the dock of the Bunkie as the sun went down. We had perfect weather which make is so enjoyable, just to relax, play croquet, read or feed the baby ducks and mom. The teens also enjoyed jumping off the railroad bridge into the water until they found out they were breaking some rules by the C.N. Police. We all loved it so much that the teens all want to come back. The only complaint was, we need more than one week. "Let's go for two next summer! We found Joe the caretaker very accommodating and easy to connect with before and after our visit. The property was immaculate with all the amenities of home. Water shoes are a must to enjoy the swims. The water is very clean and refreshing with spectacular scenery no matter where you were looking. We are so happy we found the perfect spot to accommodate our large extended family!

We chose this cottage to host a reunion with the families of four sisters gathering from all parts of the world. There were 18 of us in total with ages ranging from toddler to grandparent. This was the perfect location for all ages with lots of space for the kids to run around freely and for the adults to relax and enjoy the spectacular views. Everyone left with great memories and a hope we can all do it again soon.

My husband and I stayed at Oak Point Villa with our 3 children, a family friend and her teenager, and both sets of grandparents for a week in early September 2011. Not only that, but we held a small (35 person) wedding on one of the days. The location was AMAZING! In fact, we had rented a tent and decorated it extravagently for the event but our guests preferred to stay down by the fire, or in the lower 'bunkouse' cottage watching the lake, or on the private beach because of the beauty of the location. All of them remarked how beautiful it was and several returned the next day to visit with friends from Rama to show them the property. It was unreal how perfect everything was. Honestly, the pictures here don't even do it justice. The cottage buildings (4 of them) are all in great shape, every thing you could imagine was provided including laundary, a dishwasher and 3 full and modern bathrooms. The decks are glassed in and have spectacular views and the property is well maintained and very scenic. We even found a small dock near the back of the property which was the exact right location for the wedding ceremony. People couldn't believe how beautiful it all was.
The property manager was courteous and efficient and there was a very helpful step by step manual on what to do upon preapring to leave (which included extra garbage tags for you to use) We followed the procedures and received our deposit back within days.
We have decided to come back next year. The adults loved it and the kids (even the teenagers!) had a great time.
Thank you for making our wedding week so beautiful and memorable.

Renter Property Be-Ware
Rented property for one week, including deposit for any damages, that you get back after the place is checked for any damages or require more cleaning, the checking in at 4:00pm kind sucks because you already lost a full day, but I guess the normal. Most of sofa beds, in building have issues, some are broken, and few has uncomfortable matters, and for the price you are pay for the full property use, I think the owner should consider fixing these problems. The bunk-house building, the screen windows has holes and insects were coming in at night, so my kids could not use this building, so we end-up putting a tent beside the out-house, I am glad that we brought the tent, otherwise, we would had to fit two or three people on one sofa-bed, which are in bad shape. We were 24 people occupying this cottage, on the day of our leaving, which by the way, check-out at 10:00am, which sucks too, especially when you have 13 kids to wake-up, have breakfast and get-dressed and leave by 10:00am, unbelievable. Anyway, the catch is, the night before leaving cottage, our 4 wife’s, cleaned for about 4 hours, then on the day of our leaving cleaned for about 3 hours starting at 7:00am in morning to make-sure everything is cleaned as promised, as per contract. All garbage taken out, the place was spotless. They cleaned it, more than normal, I even told my wife, she should stop, that was too much, but no, she insisted that place, should be spotless. After, we left the cottage, few days later we should have got our full deposit of back, instead, we got partial of the money back, the property manager said that the place was not cleaned enough, I could not believe this, meanwhile, I made a promise to this property manager that I would rent this property every year, around the same time. property manager, sends me a list of cleaning issues. This is what my wife e-mailed to property manager –
Please advise me with regards to the necessary cleaning required and why were charged a cleaning fee. We (four women) spent a total of 5 hours cleaning all the cottages (3 hours night before and two in the morning). All dishes were cleaned and put back into cupboards, all garbage's were taken out and new bags put back inside, all surfaces were washed or windexed, all windows were windexed, .etc. My advice to you, when you finish cleaning, make sure that you do not leave until the PM shows-up on site to inspect, and also, make-sure you put that in contract.

Owner's Response: It is most unfortunate that this guest had some complaints about our property. Regarding check in and out times, this is agreed to by the guest well in advance of them taking occupany of the property. We are at a loss to understand why they would accept this condition before they take possession of the property but then express their dissatisfaction about it afterwards.
We apologize for the faulty screen in the bunkie. We appreciate this being brought to our attention so that we could affect proper repair.
With respect to cleaning, we have always given our guests the option to clean the property before they leave. If they choose not to, it is clearly written in the property rental agreement that we will deduct the cost of cleaning from their deposit. This, of course, was agreed to by the guest in advance. Strangely, they objected to it afterwards. We have seldom deducted a cleaning fee from our guests' deposits. However, in spite of the fact that this guest insisted they cleaned the cottages before checking out, we found the property to be in need of extensive cleaning after they left. Although we reduced the cleaning bill charged to the guest by 50%, it seemed impossible to satisfy their demands of a full refund of their deposit.
We make every effort to ensure that our guests have a positive vacation experience. It is very important to us that guest leave with the intention of coming back and telling their friends about our lovely property on Lake Couchiching. Our guest book is filled with comments from guests who have expressed their complete satisfaction and enjoyment with being at our property for their vacation. We will continue to make every effort to ensure that all of our guests have the best vacation experience available.

We had our families totalling 12 people staying at beautiful Oak Point last week. It was a very enjoyable time together with enough space for everyone to do their own thing and then come together for meals and social time. All of the accomodations were very comfortable. The sunsets are stunning indeed. The AV systems are remarkable. The privacy is excellent with the feeling of being on an island. The dock and the water "toys" got a big time workout by all of the family members but especially the children. The whole week was most enjoyable. Thanks.
