About Johnny K
Thank you for visiting my Cottage Rental Page and showing interest in my property. I was born in Beirut, Lebanon and came to Canada with my family at age 5 in 1979 - escaping the civil war! Growing up in Hamilton, Ontario (currently reside in Cambridge, Ontario) I fell in-love with the Canadian great outdoors, especially up north! I first got a taste of the great Canadian North in Grade 8, we had taken a school camping trip to Midland - that moment forever stuck with me! I fell in-love with it. Since, I've always gone up north, whether it be to Muskoka, The Bruce Peninsula, or Algonquin Park, usually to friends cottages or weekend getaway rentals. My goal and dream was to always own my very own cottage and give back in way of renting to let others experience what our gorgeous country has to offer. That dream came true in 2015! I not only wanted the perfect cottage/getaway, but one that I can rent out to other so they can experience true bliss. I had setup the cottage, the way I would want to experience it, not just as a "rental". I wanted my close friends and family to feel at home when they arrived and all I can say, is the photos do not do justice! Everyone that has experienced my cottage, are still talking about it - I guess you can say, I was blessed in getting this particular cottage. I'm 1000% positive that your experience will be the same and I look forward to many years of rental from you.
Johnny K purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Johnny K chose Carlow/Mayo
I viewed numerous cottages within my budget and one of the days we were looking at cottages, we drove by this specific cottage and it was to die for - so was the price! However, I knew I had to have this and sure enough, luck being on my side, we made the deal happen! Finding lake front property similar to this is rare!
What makes this Cottage unique
Where do I start! This cottage has so much to offer! I love the fact it has it's own private 140' lake frontage, own private dock, it's hard sand bottom and spring fed lake makes it unique to other lakes! The water is crystal clear! I love fishing and the one thing that got me was that you can catch Northern Pike right off the dock! No kidding! Fishing is amazing year round, everything from the tiny Sunfish, Small & Large Mouth Bass, Walleye & Northern Pike We have a firepit with chairs situated along the shoreline of the lake to enjoy with friends and family in the evenings! The cottage offers 4 multi-tiered decks - lot's of space to relax, catching some sun or if you want peace & quiet. I'm positive one you experience our cottage, you will want to rebook for the following years to come :)
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Perfect relaxing family holiday
We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at this stunning cottage set right on the tranquil Fraser Lake. A truly relaxing holiday for our family.
We were impressed by the cleanliness and spaciousness of the cottage, which is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped with high end appliances. We especially loved the sun room and brand new deck with a spectacular view of the lake - wonderful to watch the ducks swim by and listen to the loons in the evenings.
The swimming was fabulous. The water is clear and calm, and the swallow sandy entry was great for our young children. Beautiful sturdy dock from which you could watch the fish swim by, and perfect for your peaceful morning coffee :)
Johnny was a pleasure to deal with, and called us the day after we arrived to make sure we had settled in. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for relaxation and some quality family time! Thanks Johnny, we loved your beautiful cottage.
Dear Louise, I am so happy your stay at my cottage was what you expected. You're an amazing guest and I would love to have you back in the future.
Great holidays on a beautiful lake
It has been a great holiday in Johnny’s cottage at a beautiful Fraser lake.
The cottage is very spacious, modern and extremely well positioned with a great view on the lake.
The cottage is well equipped and provides all necessary things for a comfortable holidays.
The lack of internet connection and mobile service was a bit of an inconvenience, however, helped us to keep our kids away from the ipads :).
Fishing and swimming is great on the lake and we really enjoyed it.
The neighbors are really nice and were very welcoming during our stay.
Overall, great impressions and good memories.

Gorgeous Home Away From Home To Relax At The Lake
Our family has rented cottages in Canada for many years and this was by far the nicest cottage we have ever stayed at! Upon arrival, the last short section of road (1/2 mile or so) is not paved but was oiled, so very little dust. Overall a quiet road and neighboring cottages. The cottage has parking for a few vehicles directly in front, plus additional parking at the garage next door. Inside, the cottage is clean, modern and air conditioned (if desired). The kitchen and eating area is equipped with modern appliances, nice utensils & cookware, large refrigerator with ice maker, electric stove, coffee maker, etc. and seating for 10 people. There are two separate large sitting rooms adjacent to the kitchen to relax with nice views of the lake. The sunroom was my favorite spot! Sleeping quarters are abundant with two bedrooms upstairs and a bunk room and one separate bed located in the lower level in addition to two sofas that convert into beds. The cottage has two full bathrooms, one up and one in the lower level. Outside there is abundant seating on the main deck looking directly at the lake and a pleasant view of a hilltop farm area across the lake. There is also shaded seating at the wood fire pit and an area under the deck where you can sit outside and be protected from rain. The lake is medium in size, clean, warm and the area directly in front of the cottage is weed free with great swimming! Fishing was good considering the time of year, but we caught some nice bass and northern pike. Also had a great time water tubing and water skiing which was even better than many other places because the water was usually calm and there was little boat traffic to deal with. The boat launch is at the end of the lake a few miles down the road. There is no dock and hard sand surface, but in a protected cove and pretty easy to launch my 16-foot boat.
Johnny was always quick to answer our many questions prior to booking. A welcome letter with detailed info about the cottage/area and a map to the boat launch was left for us. Also, a bottle of wine and bug repellent bands.
After we arrived, he checked in to make sure we didn’t need anything during our stay. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Overall a great family vacation and I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone!
WOW! Thank you so much for the kind words and review. I'm so happy you were able to enjoy yourselves. We try and strive to make everyones stay as comfortable as possible and of course, enjoyable and I'm glad I was able to deliver on that promise.
I also appreciate that you left the place in immaculate condition as you received it and would love to have you as my guest in the future.
Great Place to unwind and relax
Loved it. Family had a wonderful time. Cell phone reception not good and no wifi.
Other than that a beautiful cottage with a beautiful view.
Tony & Lurdes,
Thank you so much for the review and glad your family enjoyed their time at my cottage and was happy to have you as a guest.
Regarding the WIFI, as stated in our listing and agreement, unfortunately this is not available due to lack of service in this area. Also, the cell reception is spotty in some areas, again due to the location of our tranquil cottage and hoping in the near future the cell providers improve this.
Thank you :)
This is an amazing home with everything you could ask for. It has a beautiful view of the lake. Great fishing. A wonderful escape! the owner makes you feel as if it is your own home and gives the little extras that complete your vacation! We were a group of 10 and there was something for everyone! Thanks Johnny!
It was a pleasure to have you stay as my guest and glad it was more than you expected and you all had a great time. Thank you, once again :)
