Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you so much for a great 3 days. What a beautiful place you have. I did not want to leave and I will want to rent it again. I was just blown away. There wasn't one thing I was disappointed about. I've stayed in many cottages and your lake house is on a whole different level, Everything was amazing! Thanks again for renting it to me. Take care

Girls weekend at Mill Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such a great time. This was our 2nd trip to your location and we have decided we will make it a yearly getaway. The renovations are wonderful! The home was amazing before but opening the main floor makes it so much better to cook and relax together! Such a beautiful home and location! I can't wait to come again next year!!!

Excellent Time Had By All

  • 5 of 5

The property is incredibly well stocked with everything and anything you could possibly need at your fingertips. Dealing with Rebecca in arranging the rental was easier than 'picking berries'. Upon arriving I was just amazed at the space and cleanliness. I have been arranging accommodations for our February boys weekend for the past eleven years and this is by far the nicest property we've ever rented. I'm hoping that we can rent the cottage next year and beyond. Many thanks!!

Comforts of home with natural beauty abounding!

  • 5 of 5

I am in the midst of a huge writing project, and needed a peaceful and comfortable setting in which to work. I am grateful to have found Mill Lake Getaway... such a gem! This house was perfectly stocked with all I required to feel at home, and being able to look up at the changing palette of colours on the lake and in the winter sky was soothing and inspiring. Thank you Rebecca, for making such a wonderful space available to others!

The PERFECT place for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. This place is wonderful! A group of adult friends and myself spent three nights here and we loved every minute of it. The layout and space worked out perfectly and there was lots of room for everyone. The two 'family rooms' (one upstairs and one downstairs) were comfortable and cozy. They were perfect for sitting with a glass of wine or enjoying a movie and some board games. The property had everything you need (and more) with lots of supplies to spare. It was very clean and well maintained. Outside, there is lots of opportunity for walking (both on the gravel road and in the woods) and being near the water. The firepit was perfect (even on a cold November weekend).

I can NOT wait to return with my own family as it is welcoming for both kids and adults. Arriving on a Friday, parking the car and not moving it until the following Monday afternoon says a lot. There was no need to leave.

Overall, a very pleasant experience. Rebecca was quick to respond to all inquires and she was very helpful.

Pack lightly... all you need are some clothes and food. EVERYTHING else is there!
