Could not have dreamt up a better weekend!! We were a large group of 25-35 year old women for a Bachelorette and were blown away by this cottage and it's amenities. The cottage itself is enormous and while the bedrooms are all behind closed doors and private, the kitchen/family room is open concept which is perfect for hosting a crowd; we had rain one day and we all comfortably sat around inside playing games and telling stories. The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils you could need and then some. There was surprisingly adequate fridge space. The wrap around balcony was great for private side conversations amongst friends and oh my goodness the double decker dock is a DREAAAM. I've spent many weekends up north at cottages but something about floating above the water on a huge open space and watching boats go by was just the best. It's a quick 5 minute drive to Foodland if you ran out of items or forgot anything (bonus points- also where the LCBO & Timmies is). Having the host on property was not a hindrance at all. The best way I can describe Shirley is as "rad"; a woman who even from looking at you can tell has lived and experienced a happy, full life and if you're lucky enough to steal her for a few minutes, get her talking!!

Truly the ideal get away for a low key, low maintenance group who just wants to enjoy each others company in paradise. Recommend this cottage a thousand times over and already planning a return next summer!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We definitely felt welcome! The owner greeted us once we got there. Exceptional lady! I would say this was the best cottage experience I've had up north. As for the site, eventhough the cottage is 30 years old, it was well maintained.

Be Aware!

  • 1 of 5

Our extended family of 18 rented this cottage for 12 days in August and we were all disappointed to say the least. The cottage was misrepresented as a 5 bedroom sleeping 20 to 24 which is not the case. Upon arrival we discovered one bedroom in the basement is actually windowless. We pointed out this misrepresentation to the property manager and the VRBO website has since been updated. This cottage is actually a 3 bedroom plus a loft. In addition to this misrepresentation the condition of the cottage was very poor for several reasons. The railing on the upper boat deck was not secure enough to lean against which posed a serious safety issue. Shirley’s standard of cleanliness is well below other VRBO properties we have rented. The grounds were littered with cigarette butts, geese and dog droppings. We found a dirty plate from previous guests in one bedroom; mouse droppings in the pantry; cobwebs in the cupboards above the fridge, the carpets completely soiled, window screens missing in a bedroom and a bathroom, and the BBQ/outdoor grill was beyond filthy. The furniture in the main living area is in terrible shape and several of the beds have very uncomfortable mattresses where you feel the springs. There was a wasp infestation in one of the bedrooms that was not dealt with properly and two family members were stung in the night while sleeping. Shirley offered to compensate us $100 and a bottle of wine for the inconveniences which we have yet to see. Potential renters should first view this property in person before booking. The only positive this property has to offer is the location.

Owner's Response: Dear Sir or Madam, With one exception, our cottage (VRBO Listing #3955822) has gotten very good reviews from guests. Recently we had a guest who, after completing her full 12-day stay, decided she wanted to get a substantial refund of $1500.00. ..which was never mentioned with this review. During her stay she never mentioned that she would be asking for such a large refund, nor did she alert us to any complaints that she later came up with, except for the one problem with wasps, which we solved as soon as possible. Many cottages (3 ) that I manage faced similar problems with wasps and we had actually taken steps before her arrival to mitigate this. When we learned that the problem had not been entirely eradicated, we took immediate measures to rectify it. After sending back the security deposit ..the guest wrote me "Shirley offered my husband $100.00 for the inconveniences we experienced during our stay. This amount is not enough and we are looking to be refunded $1500.00 for the stress and inconveniences experienced during our stay" Afterward she sent a threatening letter with a list of complaints, including such concerns as finding a paper plate under one of the beds and a demand for a refund of $1500.00, or else. I would also like to mention that the guests arrived well before the 4.00 P.M check in so could explain why the cottage was not ready in time. Other complaints she mentioned in an e mail also included false accusations...for instance. "The kitchen pots had broken handles which made it difficult when cooking dinner. " We found this to be completely untrue as there was just one pot with a loose handle. Homeaway’s policies regarding reviews include this: "Users cannot post a review or response for the direct purpose of forcing the other party to pay or return funds as that is not beneficial to the community as a whole." Unfortunately, they have done nothing. Further We think that her goal of claiming $1500.00 from us (blackmail) distorted the veracity of the review. We discovered that her group had done quite a bit of damage to one of our doors...which is why the $100.00 was never returned. I should point out that Michelle G and Houman G 5 star reviews were directly before and after this review. Thank you

Amazing on-the-lake Muskoka Experience!

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 20 young professionals getting together as a little reunion. The property is right on the lake and is beautiful. We didn't realize the owners were on the same property, but this did not pose a problem whatsoever. Owners were friendly and helpful and very accommodating. The inside is a little worn, but it's exactly what we needed. Main areas had tons of space and the high ceilings prevented it from ever feeling crowded. The cottage comes with paddle boats that you can take right into town. The double level deck on the water was amazing, so you always have access to sun but can also find shade right by the water. All in all this was the perfect place for us.

BEST Cottage for a Large group!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting cottages for about 6 years now for a company saes contest. We have not been successful the past 5 years until now. This property is very clean and well-maintained. I would 100% reccomend this property to anyone. The #1 thing for our group was the water right off the dock. It was very clean and the dock is also well-maintained. We rate our stay a 10/10. Thanks guys we will be back next year!

Best Weekend Ever!

  • 5 of 5

20 ladies stayed at this cottage for the August long weekend celebrating a bachelorette! We had an incredible time and the cottage was perfect! We spent the majority of the weekend on the upper level of the dock which was so spacious and had a ton of chairs and room for laying out in the sun. The water is deep enough that you can dive right off the dock too. Everyone slept super comfortably and we will definitely be staying here again! One of the nights we were invited to band practice (the cottage owner lives next door and she's awesome - so if you get invited to one of these nights, consider yourself lucky)! Kitchen was spacious, lots of room for sitting and came with pots, pans, bowls, cutlery etc!

THANK YOU for exceeding our expectations! :)

Michelle & the girls.
