A wonderful Christmas with our family at the House on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

It's the second time we are staying in this cottage with our family (6 adults, 3 young children and 2 dogs) and we weren't disappointed. The owner, Clinton Fox, is also very responsive if you have any questions or concerns. We have now stayed there in the Fall and over the Christmas Holiday. Now we can't wait to try it in the Summer to really enjoy the lake.

Great family vacation setting

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for a family gathering with our two sons, their wives and our 3 granddaughters (1 1/2 to 5 years old). There's plenty of room for everyone to sleep, to play, to eat and to relax. The four bedrooms and 4 bathrooms are a plus for a large group. The kitchen is very well appointed. The owner always answered very promptly and gave us detailed information to make sure that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. This late in the season, we obviously could not swim, but we still enjoyed the access to the beach and the fire pit where we all gathered one evening to enjoy s'mores and teach fire safety rules to the girls. It was a wonderful experience and we've already booked for another family gathering.

Stayed the week of August 26 to Sept.2 cottage has lots of room, sleeping areas were great and having bathroom in each room is a bonus. Beach area at the water is another great bonus grandson loved it and the shallow water was great. Highly recommend this property was a wonderful stay and will look at renting again in the future.

Summer Cottage in Orillia

  • 5 of 5

A lovely week was had by all during our early August stay with two families of 4. The house was fully equipped with all the important amenities. Having two fridges was helpful and we were never short of utensils and cups etc. All of the bedrooms and adjoining baths were clean and we slept comfortably each night. We took full advantage of the lake side property. The kids (aged 5-10) enjoyed the sandy beach and we brought floats and enjoyed the kayaks and canoe every day we stayed. The lake was quiet for the most part, seeing very few motorboats or such. The view was spectacular from the deck. We enjoyed morning coffee and late evening meals outside, bird watching and enjoying the beautiful sunset with almost no noise from neighbouring homes and cottages. It was a relaxing and fun week for all of us.
