Perfect for peaceful R&R. A true cottage experience, perfect for a couple or a family.
If you are looking for peace and tranquility, then this real cottage is the choice. No Muskoka Madness here, yet opportunities for activities are plentiful. Hiking, canoeing, boating, fishing, swimming, sunsets, Algonquin Park, it’s all here! Jenny and John have gone to great lengths to provide an experience worthy of repeating. Absolutely everything you need is here, utensils, spices, pots, bowls. If you forgot something, it’s probably here. And clearly, the cottage and property are being improved each year. Our experience was truly better than we had hoped, and we will definitely be returning! Thank you Jenny and John for making our 30th anniversary unforgettable!
The Elders was a great place for a relaxing, quiet getaway in a comfortable, well-equipped cottage!
Overall wonderful place to relax in a quiet cottage surrounded by nature! We were impressed with how clean, comfortable and well- equipped the cottage was which made our stay a great experience. The fishing was good from the dock and the sunsets and views of the lake were amazing.
A great mix of relaxation and adventure!
This was a perfect getaway for my husband and I, from our busy high-tech lives! We were looking for a cottage where we could both have some downtime, but also get out and enjoy the outdoors, and this was the perfect spot!
With Algonquin Park so nearby, we took advantage of biking, hiking and canoeing, and could even canoe into the park from the cottage. The swimming was also wonderful and the lake was perfectly quiet with no busy / noisy boat traffic. At night, it was a rare pleasure to see the stars so easily without the city light.
The kitchen came well-equipped, and we found we didn't have to use many of the common items we brought with us "just in case". The BBQ and outdoor deck were also taken advantage of and very much enjoyed!
Very comfortable, clean cottage.
Clean, well equipped, comfortable cottage. Hay Lake is beautiful and incredibly clear. Swimming was good. The fishing was good too, but unfortunately the catching wasn't ;). There are lots of small fish right off the dock so young kids would have a ball.
Lovely cottage on a beautiful, quiet lake
We really enjoyed our stay at the Elders! My wife and I were in need of some serious R&R, and I think we'd have been hard-pressed to find a better venue for a week of peace, quiet and deep relaxation. The cottage is simple, clean and comfortable, with a well-appointed kitchen and a lovely deck for sunsets. Having clean well water available was a huge plus! The waterfront was perfect for our three little girls, who spent most of every day splashing around and enjoying the clear waters of Hay Lake. In addition to the cottage's canoe, Jenny and John were very kind and brought over a kayak, which the girls loved. Overall, we were extremely happy with our stay and will hopefully return in the future!
Cozy, clean cottage in peaceful wooded setting on quiet lake.
Although our week of vacation included dreadful weather and plentiful black flies, mosquitoes and deer flies (yes, in late July!), Elders proved to be a good spot for R&R. The cottage itself is rustic, cozy and clean.....definitely has that great Canadian cottage feel. There is a well appointed kitchen, great well water, updated bathrooms, a skylight in the master bedroom, and a large picture window in the sitting area with wonderful views. Outdoors there is a reasonable sized deck for sitting, a nice updated bunkie, a fairly easy path down to the lake where there is a good dock to tie up your boat and a small sitting area-----a great place to read a book or enjoy the marvelous sunsets. Hay Lake has an abundance of crown land and natural areas, has little boat traffic so is very quiet, has decent fishing and is good for both canoeing and boating. As the cottage is located at the end of a roadway it is very peaceful. We enjoyed hiking along the road with our dog. This cottage is best suited for a couple or a small family. Renate H.
