Beautiful Spot. Great waterfront

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at the Lakehouse. Plenty of room for grandchildren to run and play. Our hosts were the best and helped make our stay so much fun. Beautiful home with a grand fireplace and all the up to date amenities you could ask for. Close to town with good restaurants less than 15 minutes away. Highly recommended and we will return for sure.

A lovely place on a beautiful lake system

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfectly situated with a gently sloping approach to the lake and sandy beach, fire pit, boathouse and swim/sun dock area and about 15 minute drive to nearby Bracebridge. Even has a golf cart to transport the lazier folks plus items necessary for relaxation down to the waterfront. Refrigerator in the boathouse is very convenient. Cottage is very well provisioned with about everything one could want. While there is no A/C, we never once in the 3+ weeks of our stay in July felt like we needed it as the evenings were very comfortable+ fans in every room plus extras if need be. Lovely deck with comfortable outdoor furniture, table for 6+ with umbrella and very nice grill. Owners Bruce and Gaye + son Greg were cordial, accommodating, and responsive hosts--a pure delight. We hope to return soon as our travels allow.

Elegant Comfort

An idyllic setting and upscale amenities make this the perfect Muskoka getaway. Spacious, luxurious, and comfortable - even better than anticipated. Can't imagine anything nicer.

We just returned from 3 nights Thanksgiving weekend spent with friends in this beautiful Muskoka Lake cottage. What a nice place, clean and well maintained. This cottage is fully stocked with anything you need for comfortable stay. Just had to bring clothes, food and personal toiletries. Cozy interior, large bedrooms, comfortable beds. Great indoor fireplace, sunroom and large deck added a great touch as we spent all our time there. Too bad that weather wasn't great for the swimming, otherwise we would use nice beach. The grounds are very nice and clean.

Fire pit and included firewood was great. Owner was friendly and well knowledgeable about local activities, attractions and surrounding areas.

We loved it a lot and recommend this place for wonderful relaxing getaway! :)

Owner's Response: We're glad to hear you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend at the Lake house. As the weather turns colder, the huge wood burning fireplace in the living room is a wonderful experience.

Excellent property, perfect fall vaction getaway !

  • 5 of 5

we arrived late Friday evening (Sept 30) and was warmly received by Bruce. He gave us a good walkthrough of property and amenities. Just the perfect start one would expect. The location of cottage is nice with ATM, groceries nearby, not too far from Algonquin West gate and easy on return to Toronto. Place is super calm and you can hear water at the night, birds chirping in the morning. Just amazing to sit near the lake at night and fire pit was nice too. Rooms have good view to the lake. Really nice and cozy place, we definitely visit again ! Will highly recommend for anyone looking for a great cottage vacation. Place is actually better looking than the pics on website. Must go, loved it !!

Beautiful cottage on a quiet part of the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cottage is beautiful and was perfect for our big group. It was late in the season but the lake was still warm enough for swimming.
