About Lauren Helmkay

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

Why Lauren Helmkay chose Ontario

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Far and away one of the nicest homes we have encountered through the VRBO experience!!

  • 5 of 5

Lauren is truly the Hostess with the Mostest! Not only an amazing home, but decorated beyond the imagine of Pottery Barn's best minds! Everything is in place for you to walk right in and start living your vacation, right down to fresh coffee and salt and pepper! A truly enjoyable experience for everyone in our party. Lauren and RJ could not have been more gracious hosts. Enjoy your stay on Simcoe!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Every year our law firm - Hummingbird Lawyers, does an annual retreat and for the past two years we have hosted it at this cottage. The place is always clean and great condition. Everything is always ready to go (including propane for the bbq, dish soap, and other little details like clear signage of wifi passwords and what to do with linens and recycling). The pictures do not do justice to the place - it truly is a gem of an experience.

Perfect place for a large family or group

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we rented the property and would love to return every year. We have a large family with several children of various ages and the home is perfect for us. The house was impeccably clean, perfectly equipped for most things you need, and the hosts are most gracious and wonderful people! The home is beautifully decorated and we love the large layout of the main floor which is great for large groups. Would recommend this house to anyone!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house. The accommodations were exactly what we were looking for. The pictures in the gallery cannot do the actual house justice. Very nice. The house has everything you could want down to numerous pantry items, shampoo, laundry soap... the list is endless. They even decorated for the July 1st 150 year celebrations and put up an American flag for the 4th knowing some family were from the USA. Highly recommend to family, friends and anyone look for a great place to get away.

Car: recommended

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.
