THE OCEAN LIKE VIEWS ARE SPECTACULAR AND THE BEACH IS AMAZING. THE AMOUNT OF SAND BARS CHANGE YEAR TO YEAR, ITS VERY SHALLOW YOU CAN WALK FOREVER EVENTUALLY GETTING DEEP. THE BEACH IS A SAND SMALL ROUND STONE WADE IN FOR ABOUT 10 FEET THEN IT IS ALL SAND. SOMETIMES THERE IS NO STONES IT JUST DEPENDS ON THE WAVES.

Great Weekend At Lil Cottage Mexico

  • 5 of 5

I just returned home from a weekend at Lil Cottage Mexico. We were a group of 12 ladies who found the cottage to be absolutely beautiful. Everything was as promised and advertised. Lots of room for sleeping and beds were comfortable. The cottage was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots and pans and the two gas fireplaces added to the atmosphere. The cottage is chocked full of fabulous antiques that inspired many conversations. We snowshoed on the lake and even sat outside in one of the tiki huts after our walk.

Christine was awesome to work with. We were booked a year in advance and she kept in touch as the date drew nearer answering our inquiries in a timely fashion. She was flexible with check in and out times which of course were dependent on her bookings. She trusted us to get ourselves organized and didn't bother us but was available when we had questions. We didn't meet her until we were leaving this morning. Very positive and bubbly personality. We look forward to one day returning to Lil Cottage Mexico .... although we think it should be renamed "Lil Cottage Newfoundland" as that was the theme of our weekend. Would love to see it in the summer.

dirty

  • 1 of 5

Foul odors (sewer), greasy furniture, dirty linens, spy webs everywhere, overflowing ashtrays, noisy nights (train horns down the street) and more... Pictures do not show how crappy it is out there

Owner's Response: Hi there, I'm sorry you feel that way about the cottage, i have never had a complaint in many years of being open.Being in the country and on the water yes there is spiders, i could spray but it doesn't help as well as it is toxic. I agree the well water does have an oder that i can not control even with a water softener, it was also a very dry summer it could have been also from the well having less water. My linens blankets ect. are washed after every use. I'm sorry the train was to loud it only passes a few times a day.My cleaning lady i think does a wonderful job she takes pride in her work and she works hard.I apologize for the inconvenience we do our best to make everything as nice as possible for our guests. Thank You for your input.

Beautiful Lake for families to enjoy!

  • 4 of 5

Lake Simcoe is an absolutely beautiful lake to visit. Sandbar out hundreds of feet from the dock. No seaweed and a lovely breeze. Cottage is in good condition, could use a little updating but great overall.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed the beautiful water and sand, we try to do a little updating every year, but we try to keep that rustic feeling so you don't feel like your close to the city. We appreciate your review and are glad you had a good time. Thanks, Jim and Christine

Why go south with so much beauty at our door step!!! We spent a great relaxing week with family and friends. The water was warm and clear. Great for swimming or lounging on flotters. The house is just so relaxing and spacious. Christine is very kind and Made us feel right at home. I hope to go back soon.

We hosted our annual overnight social/ education retreat at the cottage. There was lots of space to spread out, and the owners were amazing to work with. Highly recommend this place. We will be hosting here again.

Great Summer Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is amazing! Highly recommend staying here. Jim and Christine were great to deal with and very welcoming. They couldn't do enough for us to make sure we had the best vacation. The decks are so great to visit and sit outside day or night. The cottage is really large and even more amazing than the pictures! Lake was really warm but very shallow very far out. The sunsets are breath taking! Bring water bottles as the tap water isn't great (owners provide one large water container) and also bring DVDs as cable didn't have a lot of channels. There is no internet which would be nice on nights when it rained. Overall we had a great vacation and would love to go back again soon!

I THINK I SHOULD INVEST IN DVDS THAT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA. TAKE CARE AND I HOPE YOU CAN COME AGAIN AND ENJOY JET SKIING ON LAKE SIMCOE . THANKS AGAIN CHRISTINE AND JIM
