About the property

3 bedrm waterfront cottage, 2 bathrm, Sleeps 10, children & dog friendly, boat

The cottage is located down a private driveway on almost 2 acres of land, offering loads of privacy among mature red oak forest. It's rated 10 out of 10 for privacy. With an amazing view of the Fairholme Lake right from the new 40 x 10 cedar deck which was built in June 2012. The interior is decorated with a mixture of old and new, but keeping with a Muskoka feel. Clean and refreshing this cottage has it all with updated stainless steel appliances and dishwasher which allows you to relax instead of cleaning on your vacation.

This is a great family place to get away where you can bring your dog. We even supply the dog bowls, crate and dog bed.

Why Kristina chose Ontario

This is one of the most tranquil places I have ever been to. It was the dead of winter when my husband and I first came to view the cottage. At first glance we fell in love with it, we knew immediately it was the one, and we hadn't even walked inside. As a little girl I was raised in Port Elgin and Southampton on Lake Huron. Seeing the cottage for the first time brought me back to that point in time as a little girl. I felt at peace and close to nature, that feeling that nothing else really matters, time seems to past by at a relaxed and slow pace. I was so lucky to have lived by the water and this is something that I always felt was missing in my adult life. This cottage just felt right and made me feel the calm of the water and the peacefulness it has to offer. It's that place where you feel right at home when you walk inside. This is a place where we have been able to share with our friends and family and have shared some very special moments here. From celebrating our children's birthdays, Christmas, New Year's Eve, Easter, Anniversaries, stagette parties and even the guy's fishing weekend. I hope you feel the same way too about this special retreat. It is a unique and special place where we hope you too can create some of your own memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I received the money transfer, thank you.

We had a fantastic time. The weather and amenities were perfect. The kids spend most of the time in the lake, swimming, fishing and using the paddle boats. They enjoyed having their own room, complete with a TV and DVD player. We couldn't believe how quiet the lake was. We saw two beavers swim up the bank across from your dock, and then return with some branches to make their damn. They returned the next night, around 8pm again.

We felt the cottage was well equipped with everything we could possibly need.

After we spoke with you about the small tears in the screen, our daughter walked right through the screen and tore it. We replaced the entire screen, so there's no need to worry about fixing the small tears. My father, who is very handy, was coming for two nights so we had him bring along a new screen and the tools needed for the repair. We did break one wine glass but hopefully the new screen will offset the cost of the screen.

We would definitely be interested in renting the cottage in the future.

Beautiful and spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and spacious just as described. The dock overlooking the lake is perfect for a warm sunny day. The lake was quiet and still, and filled with wildlife. We even saw an otter swim up to the dock! The cottage is loaded with games for kids and adults, plus movies so you have plenty to do on a cold day. You are approximately 3 hours from Toronto so if you don't mind the drive, your stay is absolutely worth it.

Thank you Kristina!
