QUIET AND PRACTICAL COTTAGE ON A BEAUTIFUL LAKE

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented this cottage for a week long family reunion (grandparents, parents, 2 kids and 2 dogs, 9 people total), and had the greatest vacation we've had in years! The cottage is really well kept, with all the amenities necessary (including the linens, towels and some staple items for cooking). We really enjoyed the screened porch and the deck to relax or BBQ, and the front yard where the kids could play safely. On rainy days, the house is big enough so that people can enjoy their privacy and avoid getting "cabin fever", and with enough distractions (wifi, TV, boardgames and books) to wait for the rain to go away. Besides the awesomeness of the house, we felt like we were alone on the lake, whenever we would fish (plenty of sunfishes and bass in this lake) or go canoeing (we were able to all go on the lake at the same time with the paddle-boat, the canoes and the kayak!) we could enjoy the scenery all by ourselves. All in all we had a fantastic and relaxing week, and we really hope we can go back next Summer, Thanks M&M!

COULDN'T HAVE BEEN BETTER!!

Couldn't have been better!!
  • 5 of 5
I booked this cottage for a week and didn't know what to expect (renting a cottage can be a bit shady sometimes). Dealing back and forth in advance with Mike and Monica was extremely pleasant and they provided great directions to the cottage.

We arrived to find an extremely clean, fully stocked (towels, sheets, dishes, boat house) cottage with the convenience of a house but the beautiful charm of a cottage. It's rare to find a rental where the pictures don't do it justice, but that was the case with this place!

We had two families and the space was more than enough for downtime and privacy when you needed it. The bedrooms are beautiful and spacious.

Mike also dropped by and gave us some tips about the area which was really handy. We canoed out to a boy scout camp beach near by that was lovely to spend the day at.

Thank you so much Mike and Monica!! It was a real pleasure being there and my family will never forget our time there!!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION STAY

  • 5 of 5
Four generations of my family (up to 13 people at one time, from the US and 2 different provinces) stayed at this house over the Canada Day weekend. We found the house very comfortable and clean and it was able to accommodate everyone very well. There are so many activities to keep everyone busy both indoors and out; we really appreciated the well-stocked boat house with canoes and a kayak and all the lifejackets that we would need (especially those of us who had traveled by plane to get there and do not bring these sorts of items). The access to the provincial park is easy and we visited there several times also. The food pantry was a lifesaver for all the grocery items we needed over the week and there are staples provided for our use like spices, which we appreciated. The living spaces are lovely and the screened-in porch was a quiet place to relax and talk. There is ample room for kids to run around on a rainy day indoors and the ping pong table was fabulous for the children too. The TV is large and there are many DVDs available to watch. We also made good use of the Wi-Fi for email and the web. The hosts were available before our rental by phone and email concerning questions that we had, and even dropped by to make a minor repair on our request during our stay. They are excellent people to rent from. Sydenham is a short drive away for amenities. All in all this was a terrific choice for our family, the key to a great reunion, and we will consider staying here again.

FANTASTIC MAY LONG WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a great May long weekend at this cottage. It was very well kept and well stocked. It was styled and had a lot of room with a very nice open concept kitchen. The owners provided everything we needed for us to feel at home on our vacation.

The water is very calm and relaxing in a quiet bay while the neighbours were far enough away to allow for lots of privacy.

We would not hesitate to book again at this fantastic location.

WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND!!

  • 4 of 5
Stayed for 3 day weekend and would stay again. This cottage is very clean, well maintained and sooo well equipped. Full pantry, large flat screen with Wii for the kids, ping pong table, gas BBQ, boat house with 2 canoes, a kayak, 4 man paddleboat and vests, basketball net, firepit, extra linens if it gets cold at night, towels etc etc. The owners here have thought of it all for you. Fishing off the dock is great for the kids, the Sunfish are so plentiful you can watch a dozen of them go after the kid's bait. They loved it and were thrilled to catch that many fish. Crappies and Perch were caught off the dock as well with a little more finesse/skill and some micro lures with ultralight gear. Midnight fishing off the dock with topwaters was rewarding for the adults, 4 LBS bass was pulling in. The distance and slope to the water could make it difficult for someone with problems climbing steep hills but that wasn't an issue for us. Frontenac Park is really close and has many hiking trails. From ones for kids (Boardwalked) to ones for experienced hikers but don't forget to bring a BUDDY, a MAP and some WATER......"B" ;-)
Looking forward to our next visit.

VERY HAPPY WE MADE THIS SELECTION

  • 4 of 5
We were pleasantly surpised when we drove up to the cottage. The pictures don't do the place justice. It was spactious and comfortable, clean and well maintained and we really enjoyed our time there. The layout well accomodated a large group. We were 12 people in total and since there were 2.5 bathrooms, did not once feel like we did not have enough space. The owners left lots of tips and notes for us and were helpful and flexible when needed.

My young kids loved to fish of the doc - the fish practically jumped into the net - only small fish that we had to toss back but they were thrilled at the catching some.

The proximity to Frontenac Provincial Park is a real bonus as we were able to send the mornings hiking and the afternoons out on the lake.

The only slight drawback would be the distance to the water as there is not an unobstructed lake view from the cottage. However that would not stop me from renting again. The property was very quiet and private and there was everything there that one would need for a comfortable and fun stay.
