Cosy cottage with all the modern conveniences.
We had a short but very comfortable stay. Mooz Cottage was a great choice for us because we were in the area specifically to play golf nearby. Since that activity took up most of our day we didn't get to fully appreciate everything that the cottage had to offer. I have to say the kitchen is very well equipped (except for the lack of a microwave) and there are lots of games and things to do. Beds are very comfortable. We had a lovely stay.
The lake is perfection. Quiet, weed free, many entry points. The kids loved the cayak and the little sand beach. The cottage is not your typical cottage - it is a lake house! Goregous and roomy! Will be booking again.
A Piece of Heaven on the Lake
We all agreed the best part of this stay was gathering on the beautiful dock to share the view of Lake Manitouwabing! What could be more relaxing! Soaking up the beauty of this Canadian scenery was wonderful. The provided kayaks added to the experience. The well stocked cottage had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. A special place for family and friends!
A beautiful week at Mooz Cottage, Sunset Lane, McKellar
Manon and David have put a tremendous amount of time, effort and resources into this outstanding cottage with its accommodation for up to 10 people, two bathrooms, two docks for swimming, fishing and boating, a beautiful and well equipped beach house and several crafts on which to cruise the lake. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped- although a microwave would be an asset - the bathrooms are modern, with all required features and the living areas are spacious, well furnished, comfortable and able to accommodate a lot of people for a party or barbecue. The house has two decks and a lower entrance area - there is just a ton of room to go around. Two Bell satellite TV's and a play station are there for rainy days. What's more, Mooz is only 5 minutes from the McKellar General Store and 20 minutes from downtown Parry Sound, so very accessible for all shopping and town life as needed. We loved our time here and it is obvious that David and Manon are deeply committed to making their cottage a true home away from home for your family. And, the sunsets are to die for almost every evening!
As to possible improvements, the lack of a microwave was an issue with young children to feed quickly, the bicycles are truly not very roadworthy, and a list of core TV channels with instructions on how the satellite system works, would be a help for the uninitiated.
Other than that, this cottage really lives up to its billing and its reviews and we would strongly recommend it for families of all ages, particularly if you like fishing (bites right off the dock!), feeding ducks and watching turtles swim lazily by. It's a true and beautiful escape and the owners are to be commended for working so hard to make it just right.
Amazing Family Vacation Property
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and this cottage - perfect for our large, two family group!
Sweet get away!!
This was a lovely place to spend time at. Clean, classy, shabby chic and so welcoming. Even on a dull grey day the Cottage felt full of light and play! It was difficult to leave. Would definitely return and recommend!!
The cottage is located on beautiful Lake Manitouwabing. The lake has many islands, hidden bays and is 120ft at its deepest point. It is 2.5 hours from Toronto or about 90 minutes north of Barrie just up Highway 400 to Parry Sound. The cottage is fully winterized and is situated on an island which is accessible by car year round via a causeway. Parry Sound is only 15 minutes away, with a Hospital, medical clinic, large grocery stores and a selection of great restaurants.
