The privacy was fantastic for our dogs, the kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were soooo comfy, the lake perfect for kayaking and swimming - honestly this has been the best cottage we have ever rented and we thank the owners for sharing their gem!"
"Loved the wraparound deck , vaulted ceiling and wide views of the lake, fireplace, five bedrooms, large kitchen table for all the family to gather. Lots of space for 8 adult people to relax and be together or relax on their own.
Thankful that dogs were allowed!"

Great location for doing little day trips to cool areas of interest. I would definately think about renting again! Thanks so much!!!"
"The privacy and the large amount of space both in the cottage and around the property was great. It was a beautiful location. Great vacation! Thank you very much."
We enjoyed that it had five bedrooms, kitchen was a great size, the living was big, sunroom was well used. The new deck was huge and the dock and the swimming area nice. There was lots of space in and out of the cottage for the nine of us.
We like the size of the property, the total privacy offered and the design of the cottage and how it is situated on the property. In short - everything! (and being able to bring our dog). Your service is outstanding. We have never had a problem with anything. You are always a pleasure to deal with.
(Liked).. lakeside. Lots of room. Plenty of beds and bedrooms. The cottage was perfect! We loved our stay at this cottage please thank the owners for us. Your service was stellar. Everything was wonderful. You were very prompt and professional in your dealings, it was easy to trust that everything would work out perfectly. And it did! I would highly recommend this service to anyone interested in Ontario Cottage rentals. Nice work!
"The cottage was described perfectly. No surprises. The rental package was very thorough and detailed. We even knew what kind of coffee filters to bring! We especially liked the privacy, room comfortable and spacious. Loved the dock area. We would like to rent again and book the first week of August or the last week of July."
"The photos were great. The cottage was just what we were expecting. The lake was beautiful and it was a very private setting. We are considering returning for two weeks instead of one."
