Guestbook comments from the owner
We rented the entire property, Lakeside and Hillside, in July 2014 with a group of 16 adults and 3 small children (from Texas and Michigan). Plenty of space - just right for our size group. The house was great. We've done numerous similar "family reunion" trips in various locations in the US, Mexico, and now Canada, and rented houses of similar size to accommodate our large group. I have to say this house was one of the best equipped homes we've rented. Very well stocked kitchen upstairs and bar downstairs. Everything you need is provided. Furnishings look relatively new and everything was very clean. Beds are fine - not "Hilton "quality mattresses, but better than most and nothing to complain about. The lake was perfect for us. The lake is small but big enough to ski / wakeboard. We rented a ski boat for the week (needs to be delivered as the lake is not large enough for a marina). There was very little traffic on the lake - on most days we were the only boat. House also provides two canoes and two kayaks, which we took advantage of. Very nearby there is a "treetop trekking" place that is a combination of zip lining and obstacle course (in the trees). I very highly recommend it as an activity! About 3 hours and worth every penny. Had a couple minor maintenance issues arise and they were promptly addressed - no complaints. The owner, Charles, is very honest and easy to deal with. We had no problems. Security deposit was returned promptly. What you see on the website is what you get. If anything, the pictures do not do the house justice.

Since Childhood Huntsville and Algonquin Park and Highlands have captured my imagination and soul. Here is were one can finally relax, play, heal and restore one's own soul.

Charles Darby purchased this cottage in 1966

Muskoka . region is so close to Toronto and the GTA and the relaxation and rest you can absorb here at our list of cottages is remarkable. Come and visit us at one of our many cottages.

Close to hospitals, banks , shopping and all the amenities.You can stay at the cottage or head into town for a meal or a show. Many festivals run year around.

Owner's Response: Thanks Gary for this great review! My team and I try hard to anticipate our clients needs and I am so pleased to hear we succeeded. Your comments on the beds will send me to find better mattresses on beds that you indicated needed upgrading. Thanks for that! Charles

fantastic time

  • 5 of 5
Everything was thought out for our family. We wanted for nothing . We cross country ski all day here and nearby. Then we hit the hot tub and sat by the roaring fire in the Lake side retreat eating and drinking to the wee hours of the morning. The beds are very comfy and lots of blankets which we like. the kitchen had all we needed to make our meals although we did eat out nearby at some great places. We are booking our next holiday here!
