We love Lake Simcoe and being in the lake, and we love learning more about our travelling friends. Our home is known to be open as well to our guests, but we also respect the privacy of those who are looking to just 'get away' :)
Lauren Helmkay purchased this house in 2012
This home is a real 'retreat'; you'll find space to make your own, and common areas to enjoy company. The lake is the draw of this house, whether for summer swimming, or winter ice fishing. The house has a large back yard as well where you might find a badmitton net set up, or a fire burning in the fire pit.
An hour north of Toronto, this is cottage country without the commute in the long traffic north. The house itself offers spaciousness, cathedral ceilings, and an elegance that makes you feel you've landed somewhere really special.
First and foremost, Lauren [owner] was pleasant, thorough and very prompt with all online communication. Dealing with her was a pleasure.
The drive up from Toronto couldn't have been easier and smoother. Our 'tour guide' was waiting for us when we drove up, welcoming us and giving us a tour of the home, grounds and dock area. By the end of it, we could not come up with a question; it was THAT thorough, yet concise.
The first thing we noticed when we got to the Lakehouse was how the, albeit, beautiful pictures did not do it justice. It was even lovelier. It felt like a boutique hotel disguised as a lakehouse. It even smelled amazing! Also, VERY VERY clean, especially considering the shear size and footprint.
Details, details, details. In the decor, the amenities, the equipment available to us, etc. From the DVD movies to the water sports/equipment, to the kitchen tools to the bedding, we truly overpacked for this well-equipped getaway. I can go on and on about the details but there is not enough space here.
We will definitely be returning to this gem [and will pack a lot less].
We had such a great time at this property. Lauren was extremely helpful and always available when needed.
We were A group of 10 and had an exquisite time. The property is absolutely stunning and so well kept with everytjing avaialble! I loved how accomadating the owners are. From the rooms to the water facilities, everything was top notch! Its a great place for families or a group of friends to head out and relax. My group and I would highly reccomend this place
To anyone! Thank you Lauren for such a great experience! Kind Regards
What a great place to stay. As soon as you walk into this home you don't want to leave. It is beautifully decorated and very welcoming. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to cook a fabulous meal. The beds are super comfortable. We would definitely recommend this property to families, couples and families. The owners are awesome. Thank you Lauren and Grant
We held our small family wedding there over the Thanksgiving long weekend. It's close enough to the GTA but still able to escape the city. Lauren and her brother Grant were so nice and helpful. I have nothing bad to say. The ceremony went well, we had a great time there. Almost everything you need is there! Seriously. Spices, pots, utensils and even female sanitary products to name a few. Lauren and Grant has thought everything thru. Thank you for the once in a life time memory!
My wife and I came up to this house beyond excited to spend time with my family! The place was amazing, the pictures you see on here are nothing till you lay eyes on this spectacular residence. It was really roomy to hang out with all the family but the rooms were huge as well to still have your own little espace away! Lauren and Grant and their staff are simply the best people you could ever meet! And can't thank them enough for the opportunity to spend a week in this beautiful place without a doubt we will be back again!!
Stayed here for a week, the pictures just don't do this wonderful house justice. The owner Lauren and her brother Grant can't do enough to help and are on hand if you have any questions. Everything you need is there, we even needed a band aid and they were on hand as well.
Would recommend this vacation rental spot very highly, it has wonderful views of Lake Simcoe from the living room and balcony's. On the shore there are loads of toys for the water, the kitchen is loaded with everything you need, great front and back porches for relaxing. BBQ worked fantastic, huge dining room table was great for our family gathering. My son and daughter in law drove from the USA and couldn't stop talking about how wonderful the house was. The bedrooms and on suit bathrooms are 5 star ++++ everything was provided.
Thanks to Lauren and Grant for making our week there so a wonderful occasion we will always hold this place dear to our hearts.
Cottage country, 1 hour from Toronto.
Lake Simcoe, a short drive north of Toronto, offers some of the best fishing in Ontario. The lake is fished year round (pike, perch, whitefish, lake trout) and is famous for it's winterlake trout and whitefish bonanza.
