"Lovely cottage with an amazing view of Kennisis Lake - one of the most beautiful lakes in Ontario. Great shallow entry and sandy beach. I couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you for an amazing vacation!"
"Pictures well represented the cottage. The cottage was great---waterfront was very suitable for youngsters. The entire cottage was great---really liked the deck and the waterfront. Kitchen was convenient, living space was very comfortable and TV was a bonus. The overall experience with this cottage was a great one and we recommend the cottage very highly to anyone who is looking for a rental. Cottage Country Travel Services was outstanding and a great help to us in finding and renting the cottage."

"The beach property and the scene were much better in real life than in the photos. Pictures could never do it justice. As in the description the cottage and property are immaculately maintained. The grounds are large, varied in terms of docks and areas to sit and just hang out. This made our time in the sun and scenery so much more enjoyable. Even when it rained the cottage is so well set up, that we spent the time outside under the gazebo by the patio doors.
Such an easy cottage to enjoy."
"The cottage is like a home away from home. It is very clean and organized. Thanks for allowing us to share in this paradise."
"We loved the spacious deck and the outdoor living areas were outstanding. The cottage was very clean & well equipped. The waterfront was very child friendly. Recommend for families with small kids."
