About Chris

Chris and Heather along with our 4 boys. We have lived in the local area all of our lives and it's a wonderful place to raise a family. The simple things in life are what we enjoy most, we decided to rent out our family retreat from time to time, we're sure you'll love it as much as we do.

Why Chris chose Lower Vaughan

We purchased this property after a long search for just the right magical place that felt right to us. We were lucky enough to acquire the property and then added our little touches, like the custom dream decking and waterfront area. We just love spending family time here when we can. Gathering around the fire and watching the sunsets, roasting up treats and star gazing. Enjoying the sandy lakefront with a swim or a paddle.

What makes this cottage unique

Just head to the waterfront, you won't want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed for 2 nights and just loved the spot, bringing the family next time and staying for 2 weeks, an incredible place.

Great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second Thanksgiving family weekend at this lakefront cottage and it was just as breathtaking and relaxing as the first time there. Something for everyone in the family to do because it is so spacious. Quiet and peaceful inside and out. The trees were incredible in all their color, the lake was calm and inviting. The weekend was definitely too short, we could have stayed longer. Thank you for another wonderful weekend.

Fabulous week in a fabulous place ...

  • 5 of 5
We were sitting around the campfire on our last evening trying to think of what would improve the visit - and we couldn't think of a single thing!!! We had our four grandchildren (all under 4 - 2 under a year) and our daughters and sons-in-law (10). There was lots of room, we were all very comfortable. It was great to be on the beach each day, we used the decks, we went fishing, and didn't have to leave - it was our very own private resort. Hopefully we can return next summer...

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
This cottage has so much space to just relax and enjoy nature. So quiet. Great for long walks or just sitting outside or enjoying the lake. Everything was clean and adequately supplied with all you would need for your stay (just bring your own food). What you see in the ad pictures and description are right on, the view from the cottage is breathtaking. The wood stove was great for chilly nights. The outside fire pit was cozy under the stars and the marshmallow roast perfect. We will definitely plan to go back.
