"The deck by the lake was my favourite. I have rented cottages for the past few years and this year, I spent the most time on the dock. The weather was great; the deck was clean and had very comfortable chairs; nice view as well. I would like to thank the owners for sharing their beautiful cottage. My family and I had a wonderful time. Cottage Country has an excellent website. The descriptions for the cottages listed are very good and the photos are very professional."
"We love this cottage. We've been twice now, and it feels like we have been going there for years. It is wonderful and cosy and a great place to make memories with family and friends.The cottage and setting was well represented in the photos on the website. We love the Muskoka room and the lower lounge deck for the great views."
"The cottage was perfect. Exactly what we were looking for and even better than the pictures. The cottage is on a fantastic lake and from the moment we arrived we were very comfortable and it felt like home.
Traditional cottage feel with cedar panelling throughout, the lovely porch overlooking the lake. The fantastic dock and shoreline. Sunrise and sunsets. It is difficult to pick a few things as we loved everything about the cottage. It was heaven on Earth.
This was our first time renting a cottage and we were a little nervous renting site unseen, using an online service. From the booking through to our departure from the cottage, it was a great experience and we will be recommending Cottage Country Travel Services to our friends and family who may be looking to rent. In addition, the meticulous care of the cottage we rented made our stay very enjoyable. This was the perfect vacation experience!"
"The cottage and surroundings were very comfortable and well maintained. The location and lake were terrific. It was a wonderful place to relax which my kids and parents both enjoyed. Thanks."
"We returned to this cottage on Kennesis Lake and this summer was equally enjoyable. Great location, beautiful cottage. It is obvious the owners (and Cottage Country) do all they can to ensure their guests have a pleasurable experience. Big kudos once again to Cottage Country."
"The descriptions of the cottage were perfect. In fact, the cottage had more than we expected. The cottage had everything one could possible need. The cottage had a great open plan kitchen and living room great for cooking and cozy evenings in by the fire. Then during the day, there were many - all very comfortable - places to lie and relax in the sun. This cottage gave us so many memories and was a huge hit with our German family. Of course we would consider coming back! Thank you, and to the owners, for a great vacation."

"It is a great lake for swimming - very clean. We appreciated the call of the owner first evening to confirm everything was in order and to give us some instructions about the boat. Cottage had everything you want and there was an ample supply of toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, dish soap, spices and oils that was there for the renter's use. Good supply of dishes and pots and pans. The outdoor furniture was very plentiful and you had lots of options of where to sit - on the deck by the cottage or down on the dock by the lake..... even had an outdoor stove where you could have a campfire and roast marshmallows!!!"
"Fantastic descriptions that described the cottage perfectly. Cozy, clean, exactly as described in the ad. Great swimming off the dock and the boat worked beautifully. Thanks for making this a wonderful family vacation."
"The cottage was actually even nicer than the pictures showed. It was cozy and well equipped and the sunroom offered a beautiful view of Kennisis Lake. We loved the sunroom, the view was stunning, the decor cozy and the size was perfect. We enjoyed the dock and sundeck all day long, whether having coffee on the dock in the morning listening to the loons or swimming in the daytime or just relaxing on the muskoka chairs in the evening, watching the sun go down."
"We absolutely loved this cottage. The best one to date. Loved the clean, deep swimming water! Loved the treed, rustic lot and the privacy! We don't have one negative thing to say about this location -- in fact we hope the cottage is available next summer for the same time period. We really liked the privacy. Although the neighbours are near you can't see the cottages. Even at the water, even though the other docks are close, you still feel you have privacy. The water on Kennisis is great too. Deep and clean. Just what we were looking for. We also love the rustic feel of the cottage!"
“It's a very nice, well located, well outfitted cottage. We enjoyed it very much. We liked the dock set-up and swimming quality were lovely - the cottage was very roomy and comfortable, nice, well-equipped kitchen. Thanks again for another great rental experience.”
”Yes, we were very satisfied with the cottage. The info about nearby attractions was very useful. We liked the screened in porch, nice deck on the lake, privacy vs the neighbors property, use of boat, separate bedrooms.”
”The cottage was exactly as we pictured it. Private. Nice big deck/dock and screened in porch. We had a great time. Nice cottage on a nice lake. “
”Rugged setting, privacy, large deck, sun-porch, deep water, deck system. The cottage is the ideal situation for me – rugged setting, private, deep water, rustic but with all the amenities! “
“Just a quick note to let you know that we really enjoyed our stay at cottage #447. The cottage was lovely and the setting was just beautiful. All in all a lovely week – only one day of rain and our family from England thought the area was brilliant. We’d definitely use your company again, we found you all very well organized. “
