"The pictures and description are spot on. We''ve never had a bad experience on arrival, and it's been 12 or so years! Kennissis Lake is absolutely beautiful."
"It's hard to know where to start. Everything was perfect. This is a wonderfully appointed home in a beautiful setting with every amenity accounted for. The waterfront is a perfect mix of dock, Canadian Shield rocks and sandy beach. It's clear that the owners have put a lot of thought and love and pride into their property and it is wonderful that they trust strangers to also enjoy it and exercise stewardship over it. Thank you!
The photo gallery was very accurate and extremely helpful in not only making the decision to rent it but also in formulating an idea of what the experience would be like - something that words cannot convey as accurately.
This is a dream home, tastefully rustic, thoughtfully equipped, very comfortable and in quintessential Ontario cottage country. We couldn't have loved it more and we can't think of a thing that was missing from the experience. Thank you again, Cottage Country!"
"The cottage was very accurately represented on your web site. There were no surprises. A very nicely maintained cottage with lots of different spots for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. The small beach area was really appreciated on a lake with so much rocky shoreline."
”We enjoyed the water front/dock/beach (weed-free clear water and sun all day long) and the big kitchen. There is certainly LOTS of room in this cottage. We love this cottage and would be happy to return”
”The pictures that were e-mailed to us most accurately reflected the cottage. A very thorough set of instructions - you run a very professional business. We loved the dock area- it was nice to have such a large area to sit by the lake. The picnic table with the umbrella provided shade if needed. The view from the cottage deck was wonderful. The shallow area in the water was great for my son to play in. We enjoyed our canoe and paddle boat rides as well. And the cottage had all the amenities of home!! We are interested in renting this cottage again for the same week in July 2006. We had a lovely time there.”
"The openess of the interior, expansive deck, great dock area and deck, privacy, nice bedrooms with comfortbale beds and great views of the lake, very good bathroom facilities, well equiped large kitchen, well kept cottage with extreme overall cleanliness, very well furnished comfortable living room, great views from all areas, lots of good comfortable deck furniture. GREAT COTTAGE."
"Walking through the front door and seeing the lake through the floor to 2nd story window was beautiful and a wonderful way to start our vacation. The fenced and gated deck at te back of the cottage is practical and really met our needs with the dogs. We loved the little beach area by the dock and the deck area around the dock and the close proximity to the trails in the forest."
