Wonderful stay in Muskoka

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5, extended family of 7 AND friends of the family (5 more) stayed at this vacation rental and had a fantastic time. The cottage was clean, spacious and had all the comforts of home and then some! Jesse (property mgr) provided excellent customer service-- Thank you! If we were to travel to the Port Carling/ Bala area in Muskoka again we would definitely book this rental.

Dream stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 17 people and this was our first visit to Muskoka and also a first experience in cottage renting in Canada. I have to say that this was an amazing experience ever. First a few words about Jesse, the owner. Right from the first moment, it felt like we were talking to a friend. He is the friendliest and most approachable person. You can contact him anytime and he will respond immediately. He was very accommodating with whatever changes we came up with. The cottage is a dream. The rooms are spacious. There is a beautiful fireplace. The cottage overlooks the lake and we went kayaking and canoeing and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had 7 children aged 5-22 and they were well engaged with the various games and activities that were there in the basement. The property was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped and had all that we needed. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone visiting this place and I think that we will be returning again next fall! I want to thank the owners for making our stay a very beautiful and memorable one!!!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

You really get the true feeling that your in cottage country when you drive through the beautiful little town of Bala before arriving at the Ronin cottage. Placed up on a hillside, with a driveway big enough to fit 10 vehicles you finally arrive at your Muskoka dream cottage.

You walk into the cottage and right away your greeted with breath taking views of a nice open concept great room, with a kitchen and living room all spaciously spread out. You can walk right through to the back that leads to the outside deck that immediately captures the stunning lake along with your future hang out spots; the hot-tub, fire pit down by the water and the newly looking deck that has your canoe and kayak just begging to be brought out on the lake.

If that isn't enough then you head back in and take the stairwell downstairs. Here you walk into any sports fan dream, ping-pong table, pool table, pinball machine, NBA JAM video arcade. Not to mention all the amazing sports memorabilia that hangs from the walls. You turn around the corner and you run smack into the SAUNA!! Also situated in the basement is a couple bedrooms with beds enough to sleep 11. Three bedrooms are located on the main floor as well.

Overall it was a fantastic getaway and would recommend it to anyone. We fit 13 big bodies in their easily. Jesse and his father Ian were incredibly easy to work worth and we will definitely be making a trip back in the future!

Stunning Escape

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning cottage with all of the amenities and then some. There is comfort to sleep 14+ people. Beautifully decorated kitchen, dining areas and an incredibly enjoyable screened in Muskoka room set up in the trees. If you have teens they will love the downstairs games room. Stunning..... comfort... amenities, all in the heart of Muskoka, we love it!!!

Winter weekend bliss

  • 5 of 5

Seeing is believing! My friends and I travel annually for a weekend cottage getaway and THIS cottage did not disappoint. We enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing and fun filled time in the Muskokas.

Jesse will be a new friend. Constant communication and throughout the whole process was excellent. From the beginning, he answered all of our questions and addressed any concerns. Ian's availability via telephone during the weekend was stellar!

Provided directions and instructions were accurate. The pictures did not do this spacious home away from home justice. Clean, well-maintained and comfortable, this is a cottage I would visit time and time again.

From the sauna to the games room with regulation style pool table we were impressed. A summer cottage stay will be definitely in the calendar with hopes of frequent visits to the Hot tub ;)

Thank you again gentlemen for allowing myself and my friends to spend time at your home, it was simply great!

Drinks on me !

Just finished my second stay at the lovely Rolin dream cottage and couldn't have enjoyed myself more. My friends and I have adopted it as our secret escape away from our busy lives. I am yet to have visited it in the Summer but after experiencing Fall and Winter there I can only imagine how beautiful it is! Although, the Rolin dream cottage has so many wonderful amenities my favourite part is the unlimited amount of guest robes available - keeping with the cottage's theme of being warm and cozy. It is truly the closest thing to paradise you'll find in Ontario :o)

This quaint, charming town is within 5 minutes by car and supplies everything you will need for your vacation. Port Carling is 10 minutes away. The cottage is situated on its own 10 Acre forest and waterfront. The lake is clean and warm in the summertime. Enjoy the autumn foliage at this luxurious country home.
