Spacious cottage with all the amenities and a beautiful waterfront

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect cottage for our stay with two families with young children. Each family had their own bedroom with ensuite- and the kids had a bunk room to share x2.

Anthony (the owner) was lovely and very helpful to ensure we had everything we needed and available for contact. The waterfront was great! Our kids loved the beach and swimming dock/kayaks- water was clean and waist height off the dock. We had a fantastic campfire in the back area and space to run around. Bugs were awful (being June) so we ate indoors mostly, which was great too! Kitchen has full amenities with a variety of appliances and great BBQ so we ate well :)

Great location for running- biking- swimming, golf course 5 mins away- and many near by options for kids (Santas Village, Gravenhurst splash pad, Deerhurst daypass for indoor activities, and Bracebridge).

Accessibility wise there are a lot of stairs up to cottage from driveway (great exercise!) and there is a road separating the cottage and beach, so take care when in and out with children.

Overall a wonderful stay!

Very clean, well kept, modern property with beautiful views of the lake

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. We took a day trip to Algonquin since it's just about an hour away from there, as well. I would defiintely recommend to others as the price was quite reasonable too. Thanks!

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic cottage in a great spot. We stayed here and skied at Arrowhead (approximately 30 minutes away) and everyone in the group couldn't get over how modern and well-equipped the cottage was. A great place to spend a weekend or more.

True customer service combined with Idyllic surroundings in well-appointed cottage

  • 4 of 5

After a few small mishaps (no real fault of the owners), our week long stay at Fawn Lake was truly magical! The owners response time is immediate and they were always quick to remedy anything or answer anything. True customer service.

They have thought of everything here (including a tetherball court!) and it was comfortable and spacious enough for 6-8 people at any one time.

We appreciated all the perks of this stunning home and we hope to be back next summer. If you have small children it is fantastic because the lake is super shallow and you while away your time by the water...

So marvellous!

Thank you Norm and Anthony!
