"The pictures accurately represented the cottage. No surprises, thanks! You might want to include a picture of the fire pit...which we enjoyed using! We enjoyed the view of the lake, screened sun room, kayak and canoe, clear and clean lake, nice cottage for a good value. For our family it was great!"
"Thanks for a wonderful place to vacation!"
"The cottage was exactly like on the internet and what we expected. Great Muskoka cottage. Not fancy. Just what we wanted. We went after Labor day it was quiet. Easiest vacation we have ever had. Easy to arrange for the rental and very easy to get there and know what to expect.
The weather was not the greatest and it was a very nice surprise when the owners phoned and said that on Saturday we could spend the day and leave around 4 pm (check out 11:00 a.m) if we wanted as they did not have anyone coming in. So we got an extra day.
Great holiday. Have already recommended it to friends. Thanks again."
"This cottage felt just like a Muskoka cottage should, perfect blend of new and old with trees, water, sun and fresh muskoka air throughout, screened room was superb. The photo's were very accurate, surreal how looking at them for so long leading up made you feel like you knew the place already, felt like coming home. Highly recommend."
"Where to start? This is such a great cottage - the photos on the website really don't do it justice. There is so much space to spread out and relax and the owners have left so many thoughtful touches to make it feel like home. The shady trees provide nature's air conditioning and the screened room allows for a summer respite, even in the rain. A wonderful spot!"
" We loved being right on the lake. Watching the stars at night off the dock will be very memorable to myself and my daughter. I really did enjoy this cottage. We loved our week here."
"This was our second year at this cottage and there was new furniture to enjoy. We love the screened room overlooking the water!"
