Guest Comments

“It was a wonderful property. The bunkies were great. And that the internet service was robust and available down on the dock was fabulous.
We had a great time!

“Our family of six had an amazing time at the Bark House. Very much a cottage, which is what we wanted – pure Ontario summer awesomeness. Thank you!”

“The location and peacefulness of the cottage was great as well as how quaint the cottage was and the variety of sleeping quarters.”

“The cottage looked even better in person. Too many not to list! We loved the cottage. Being situated right on the water was perfect for us! We also appreciated all ‘extras’ of the cottage such as: the deck with the outdoor fire-pit (thanks for use of your wood!), the outdoor shower (we all absolutely loved it!), the spacious dock (we spent a lot of time there!), the bunkees for the kids (they loved having their time and space away from the adults), the movies to watch and books to read (we made use of them everyday), the beds were so cozy and comfortable, and the water crafts were used everyday (2 kayaks 2 canoes).Being a family of six we were so pleased to find this cottage that was within our budget and had all amenities on site. The kids couldn’t stop gushing over the cottage features and thought it was the best ‘outdoor’ experience they have had so far. My spouse and I were so relaxed throughout the entire week knowing that there was plenty in the cottage to satisfy the children. We thoroughly enjoyed our downtime and we truly believe this cottage’s welcoming feel helped us feel like we were in a second home. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” 2015

“The description and photos of this cottage did not do it justice at all. It was absolutely gorgeous. When we first arrived, every step was filled with “oh my god” and “wow”. The layout and amenities are so perfect and beautiful. The hardest thing was deciding what we wanted to do first; sit at the beautiful table on the high deck attached to the cottage, sit at the beautiful large fire pit deck, sit on one of the two hammocks or sit on the gorgeous dock by the water. ”


“We just got back from our wonderful vacation from cottage #759. This was my husbands and I last vacation before we become parents and we loved every second! The cottage was fully equipped with everything you needed to complete your vacation. They had one of the largest selections of movies I have ever seen, which were even categorized! On the rainy days my husband and I enjoyed a selection from their vast amount of board games.

We absolutely loved the fire-pit area, as this was not what we expected from the pictures. We also experienced the ceder shower, which was unlike any shower you have ever had! You can tell the owners have a lot of pride for their cottage. The booking process was seamless and we were sent all of our details/information in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone!”

“Everything was exactly as described (except there was only one kayak, not two – but not a big deal). We loved absolutely everything! Lakefront, beautiful and cozy cottage, loved the pine throughout, well stocked with games and movies for rainy days and lazy days. We had a great week! We enjoyed the swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and just relaxing! Walking down Leisure Lane was beautifully peaceful!”

F. & D. Vincent

“Nice location and cottage had pine throughout. Great selection of DVD’s and nice flat screen to watch them. Fireplace worked great on the few cold nights. Nice dock and swimming was great. Nice cute cottage for a couple or small family.”
