Amazing Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group and never felt cramped. The cottage is so spacious and the yard is huge! We had amazing weather (for September) so we were able to take full advantage of the paddle boards/kayaks/floaties! The beds were very comfortable and the fridge had TONS of room for our groceries and drinks. We will definitely stay here again!

Incredible family cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second family get together at this amazing cottage and once again it did not disappoint. Large, open concept indoor space with lots to do on rainy or lazy days. Amazing beach front property perfect for playing in the sand. We especially appreciated the shallow entry into the lake which was great for our 6 kids under 5. We spent most of our evenings around the campfire surrounded by Muskoka chairs with a great view of the lake while eating S'mores. A storm knocked out power to most of the area for a couple days during our stay and the owners made sure we were well taken care of. They arrived at the cottage with a cooler filled with ice, flashlights and extra batteries for everyone and as a bonus they threw in a bag of glow sticks and goodies for the kids. Due to the power outage we used the BBQ for all our meals and nearly ran out of propane. One quick text to the owners and two new tanks arrived within a couple hours. Thanks again for such a great vacation. We are really looking forward to returning again next year!

Huge open-concept cottage with lots of space and entertainment

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was much bigger than how it looks on the pictures. It was just perfect for our big group. Everyone had space in the dining area and cooking didn't feel cramped. There were lots of things to do in the cottage: kayak, volleyball, watch movies, board games, etc so we were never bored. Internet is also available but slow.

Cons: One of the dining chairs was already broken when we arrived, and there is also a bucket full of cigarette butts on the deck that looks to have been sitting there for a very long time. We also opted out of the linen option, but didn't expect that we had to bring our own pillows as well.

Overall, we had a very nice time there. Thanks Norm!

Nice Property but could use more TLC!

  • 4 of 5

This was the second Thanksgiving our family of 13 have spent at this property. Last year of course was good and that is why we booked right away after. The property has all the amenities that a large group can ask for ping-pong,volleyball,kayaks,canoe etc etc. The property is just a few years old and for the most part in good shape. The bathrooms are clean and floors vacuumed. The stove top had a piece missing as well as a large crack( this should have been fixed). The plumbing in master bath was loose and should be secured. The windows were all dirty and should have been much cleaner. The house is surrounded by sand which needed more attention than was given. The property should be raked during the summer months especially the volleyball court. Our contact Norm was a great guy on the phone and very easy to work with. Also we were the last renters for the season so after a busy summer I'm sure not all can be perfect. The property is great for a large group and to finish the property gave our family 2 Great Thanksgiving weekends. Thanks Norm.

a Dream Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Modern,spacious cottage and property was well planned for fun and relaxation. We immediately felt welcome and settled into vacation mode. We were sad to leave. We did a lot of meal preparation and BBQing with ease. One of my cousins in Newholm said, "That's not a Cottage!! It's a Mansion." It truly is a beautiful vacation home.
