"The shallow entry for the kids was well described in the cottage description and excellent. Very safe for small children. The photos and write up can't fully explain how beautiful Sandy Lake is compared to the rest of the Kawarthas or Muskokas. The water is extremely clear and blue like a beach in the Bahamas."

"The lake was perfect for our young families - shallow, warm, sandy. The size!! Huge and perfect for our 3 families. Very nice, modern and updated. The proximity to amenities. It was nice to have air conditioning. The amount of things the owners let renters use - ex - children's playpen, booster seat, children's outdoor chairs etc. We can definitely pack lighter next year! The only downfall to our trip was the broken water pump half way through the week. However, we called the owners, and they promptly took care of it and had someone fixing it within a few hours which we needed since we had 3 small children.
Yes we are definitely going to book this cottage next year - providing all our parties can get time off together again."

"The cottage and the lake filled the bill for everyone in my family. We have been renting cottages in the L. Simcoe and Couchiching area for 6 years and this cottage far surpasses the others. We represent 3 generations, grandparents, our 2 children and spouses and our 4 grand girls. The fishing was incredible, son-in law and son are avid sport fishermen, caught some beautiful bass. Both 6 and 9 year old daughters were out every am at 6:30 fishing and all caught more than they could have dreamed. They throw them back to be caught again next year. The 2 younger girls played for hours in the sand and water. We all enjoyed the water and particularly the shallow entry with young children. The cottage was a home and filled the needs of everyone. The best beds yet and my dream of every room facing the lake. Someone planned it well. The proximity to a grocery store, liquor store and 2 very picturesque small towns, Lakefield and Bobcaygeon was also a bonus.
I presume from my spiel above we would be very interested to rent again."
