Great location within Big Canoe!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over New Years at Dusty's house in Big Canoe. It was nicely decorated, clean, well equipped, and great location to the beach and walking trails. The owner was very response and easy to work with. There were a few minor issues with hot water, but again, Dusty was so responsive to our needs! Highly recommend staying in this home! We will be back!

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion here over the Thanksgiving week. Everyone loved the location. The home was large and comfortable with a view of one of the several lakes in Big Canoe. We all enjoyed hiking the trails and seeing the wildlife.

Nice house, wonderful scenery!

  • 4 of 5

The house is Awesome! View is even better truth be told. Dusty (the owner) very understanding guy. Took care of minor problem. The only reason I didn't give it the highest mark is, I drive a full size truck, and it's hard to go up the steep incline backwards. The stay was fantastic though.

Sit out on that awesome deck with a cup of coffee, it just brings you peace.

Great time at Big Canoe

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at "The Roost". The owner Dusty was very easy to work with. Always quick to respond if we had any questions. The house was very nice and well stocked with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were neatly decorated and made us feel right at home. The location in Big Canoe was very convenient. We had some great weather and really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this home to anyone.

From start to finish Dustin was really helpful and allowed us to change the dates on several occasions. His house was amazing and had everything anyone could need for our visit. We particularly appreciated the free swim armbands and the fact that we could walk to the pool, beach and fitness centre.

Big Canoe is a wonderful vacation spot with lots for everyone to do for children to walkers, golf fanatics and boat lovers and a very safe environment.

We will definitely be coming back.
