About Carol Johnston
My husband and I had this home custom built as it has been a dream of ours for years. We are a few years from retirement, however, until we gain full access of it, we are willing to rent it out to respectful guests.
Carol Johnston purchased this House in 2014
Why Carol Johnston chose Kawartha Lakes
Although the house is situated in the country and boasts beautiful views, it is also very close to all big city amenities (approx. 20 minutes away).
What makes this House unique
Very quiet and serene and a great place to come for relaxation.

Doesn't get much better!
First, let me say that the photos do NOT do it justice. The place is beautiful. Entering into that 2 story family room with the wall of windows......with views of the pool and lake. Breathtaking! I gave everything a 5 star but the cleanliness, but that was just some dust left behind near the couches by the cleaning company. I would not blame the owners. And it took a few swipes of the broom to take care of. Bathrooms were spotless, clean linens, kitchen was immaculate. We had a slight hiccup with the heat in the pool, but the owner drove a long way to come help resolve the matter right away. Responded to any text immediately. The pool, sauna and hot tub really made it a relaxing vacation. When the kids were bored, well, they just played video games on the 80 INCH TV!!! The characters were like real life size! I can only speak of the master bedroom, but the bed is very comfortable. It's on the firm side (which I don't have at home), but I had no issues sleeping whatsoever. Then you have a refrigerator made for a king! Don't worry about being able to fit your food in that bad boy! Only problem is now my wife will want one. Any kitchen item you need is there. Blender, coffee maker, soda stream, pots & pans...you name it! The outdoor grill is HUGE and works excellent (temp guage wasn't working but that didn't matter). Top notch exercise equipment was a plus. My wife loved the treadmill and the elliptical was great too. We don't do weights, but they have a killer setup. The kids used the paddle boat, canoe and the kayak and had a blast. If you have young kids, fishing off the dock is excellent for bluegill, sunfish and an occasional bass. If you want to fish like big boys, make sure you bring a boat or reserve one BEFORE going! The water is too shallow for much more than I mentioned above and all the boats in the area were already rented out by the time we arrived. Not a negative to the property in any way, just an FYI for anybody wanted to fish for bigger game. We had to go to the store almost daily and it's just a quick 10 minute ride to the grocery store, liquor or beer store. If you want a quiet and relaxing vacation, this is definitely the place to go. The owners are excellent and the property is top notch!! Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your home.
Thank you so much for your kind review. We are happy that your family enjoyed your stay and look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Beautiful, Fun and Relaxing
This place the perfect setting for our family to have a fun, fantastic time together, and to enjoy a week of peaceful relaxation. Loved our stay!
Many thanks to our wonderful hosts the Johnston’s for sharing this lovely peaceful property. We were a family of four generations who enjoyed a two week stay. Many memories were made that we will remember always. The home and amenities are exceptional!
We had a wonderful family vacation!
The lake house was fabulous! It was very quiet and relaxing and everyone felt so comfortable staying there! The lake house was so bright and wonderfully decorated.
The waterfront was beautiful and the kids enjoyed canoeing around in the lake and of course they loved the pool! The adults loved the jacuzzi! The view from the balconies as well as the patio were spectacular! I’d stay there again for sure! The owners were very friendly and very accomodating and we thank them so very much!
