About Sanjeev Goel

My wife and I are family physicians 40 minutes south in the booming city of Brampton. We have 2 great kids - Omiya and Vyom who love coming down to 'pebble beach' at the cottage when we can make it down.

Sanjeev Goel purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Sanjeev Goel chose Ontario

This is our dream cottage - a modern home - bigger than we could ever use nestled in a forested are of 70+ acres with the Nottawasaga river running through it. The cottage is our way of teaching our kids to be in nature and get away from the city life.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is in the tourist town of Hockley Valley off the main road but once you go to the back, you feel like you are far away from civilization

Perfect for a Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 5 Women and 3 toddlers. This is a very large house, which was perfect so the toddlers could make their noise at 6am and not wake up those sleeping in. It was one of the best stocked and clean cottages we have rented thus far i.e. there were lots of towels, kitchen had lots of supplies, etc. The river and grassy area were great for the toddlers to burn energy. I didn't book a massage but some of the others in our group did and thought it was fantastic. I second another reviewer that the furniture in the living room is sparse, we moved the second couch into the living room and that problem was solved though. Another kitchen chair or 2 would help for large groups (was just enough for the 8 of us). Check in/out was simple. We did not need any assistance from the property manager while there, but it was great there was someone available should we have needed help.

Beautiful property, lots of room

  • 5 of 5

This house is large with many bedrooms and two pull out couches. It is very nicely renovated and has everything you need for a nice weekend away. The property is very nice, with a fire pit and a beautiful creek (not deep enough for swimming, but we tried anyways!). Only complaint is that the furniture is sparse in the living room, this is really not a big deal, just something of note. The sun rooms on the property are so nice and make for a beautiful place to enjoy the scenery. Highly recommended! Also, check out the general store just down the road. It is very cute and a great place to grab breakfast. It also doubles as an LCBO if you run out of beverages...only a ten minute walk from the house!

Birthday Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect get away!

A group of friends joined me to celebrate my birthday and it was the best birthday I have every had! A perfect setting for a relaxing winter walk, beautiful views to enjoy during group meals in the large dining room, cost couches and cushions to sit around and visit and lots of room so that everyone could be comfortable.

When the weekend came to an end we were already planning next year's visit and potentially even a summer visit.

This is a great place to stay with family or friends. Being able to bring my dog also helped to put the weekend over the top and the jet tub didn't hurt!

Will certainly be going back!

Thank you for the wonderful memories.

Great property, lots of space and delightful view

  • 4 of 5

This cottage has space if you need it. A little minimalistic furniture wise but hey, it's a rental! The cottage is kind of close to main road but no noise is heard from within and the spectacular view and river behind make it worth it.

Great Stay in a Stunning Home! GIANT backyard :)

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful stay. This house is beautiful and very spacious; and even more so is the back yard! What great get-away for us! We rented the house from Thursday - Tuesday. We asked permission to host a family reunion/BBQ/celebration on Saturday. This was the PERFECT place to host. It's a short drive from Toronto; we grilled burgers on the large deck; plenty of parking; served beverages and cold food in the sunroom; we played games like soccer and bocci ball on the lower-level lawn in the back yard. We brought our own medium-sized canopy to provide shade for our guests on the lower-level lawn. At the end of the night, all the beds were full and there was ample space for us in the house. Once everyone departed on Sunday morning, my husband and I had the house to ourselves again. Our dog loved wading into the river and exploring the greenery. There's a General Store/LCBO at the end of the road where you can get last-minute items. And finally, George (the property manager) was so wonderful to work with. He answered all my questions via phone call/text in a timely manner. And he ensured the lawn was groomed for our BBQ. Our family and friends who came on Saturday loved the place so much that we're already talking about coming back! Thank you for having us!

Sumaiya - Mishal

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place. This cottage was one of the best equipped properties we have encountered. Three large bathrooms, with baths and separate showers, and a kitchen extremely well supplied with utensils etc. The open-plan living part on the main floor and the large windows allowed us to enjoy fantastic views from inside.

Thanks to the property manager for a great stay and for such impeccable maintenance of the location. We have especially enjoyed the owner's prompt and helpful responses to our queries and willingness to accomodate all our needs.
