Why Jessica & Frank chose Ontario

Muskoka is an area that we have always been drawn to and have loved to visit. We still at times can not believe that such a beautiful place is ours and we are so excited to raise our family there and share our incredible cottage with our wonderful renters.

What makes this cottage unique

The views from every room in the home are absolutely breath taking.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

It was our first visit to the Kearney area and our only disappointment was the lack of fish in Sand Lake.

The cottage was lovely, very spacious for our 4 adult, 1 child group. The kitchen was well equipped and the furniture was comfy. The deck and views were outstanding. We appreciated the privacy.

The kayaks were a hit with our son and daughter-in-law.

The steps to the lake were daunting at first, but after a week we came away with well toned calves and thighs!

Jessica (the owner) was very accommodating and helpful.

We will recommend this cottage to all our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We would love to have you return. I'm sorry about the lack of fish. We have had guests successfully catch some in the past, even right off of the dock. As I pride myself on gaining 5* reviews it's a shame that the reason this one is a 4* is beyond my control. Thank you for recommending our home to your circle of friends and family!

Absolutely Breathtaking!!

  • 5 of 5

Another stay in paradise again this year. The house is lovely and huge, the swimming is divine (warm water, sandy bottom, nice to wade in, drops off past the edge of the dock) and we even caught a fish right off of the dock! The view from the deck is incredible. We will be back again next year :) Also love the 3 kayaks. We toured the lake, so much fun!

Complete & Utter Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting cottages for nearly a decade and we have NEVER before rented such a beautiful place. This home should not even be called a cottage, but a lake house as it is truly a HUGE home. What a gem - and the prices are so reasonable considering! There are 4 GIANT bedrooms that are decorated impeccably and the 2.5 bathrooms are a huge bonus too. The entire home is spotless and has EVERYTHING you would ever need. The home has the most beautiful sunset view and there are 2 different balconies that you can enjoy the view from. Even the BBQ and outdoor dining set is brand new and spotless!

The lake itself is so clean with crystal clear water and a beautiful sandy bottom. The lake was perfect for our young children with the sand bottom, and large shallow wading area. The water doesn't get deep until past the dock a few feet and then it drops off. The dock itself is huge and a perfect place to suntan and listen to music or read a book. There is also a beautiful deck by the water's edge which is nicely shaded if you need a break from the hot sun. All in all this place is simply amazing and we will be back. There will be no need for use to look for another "cottage" to rent again.

Heaven is a Place on earth

  • 5 of 5

WOW! The photos on here do not do this place justice, the view is breathtaking. The cottage is also so much bigger than it first may seem, every room was well equipped and there wasn’t anything that i was wishing that i had packed. It was also very clean and well kept.

We had fun boating on the lake, as well as swimming in it and kayaking. If you ever feel you need to leave this beauty though, there is a small town just a few minutes drive, that houses a pub, lcbo, ice cream shop (you have to pay it a visit) as well as a shallow beach area. 20 minutes away is the nearest town of Huntsville where you will find all the usual amenities should you need them.

We cant wait to go back again this year. Thanks Frank & Jess for making our booking and stay so seamless. I have already recommended you to my friends and family.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME :) VERY RELAXING! There are no disappointments!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for six amazing days in December. The cottage was VERY clean and well taken care of. It was nicely furnished, and extremely comfortable. The cottage was equipped with everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. The view was incredible! Having access to the internet was an added bonus :)

Thank you, Jessica and Frank :)

Whether you feel like being outdoors or indoors, whether you are a beginner or an expert, whatever the season, whatever the budget, Muskoka has something for everyone.

Our cottage is only 30 minutes from the world-famous town of Huntsville and only 10 minutes from infamous Algonquin Park.
