Great cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was great, very nice stay. Clean, with a great kitchen.

We arrived during the winter however, and the driveway was too steep and icy to drive up. Had to park lengthwise at the bottom of the hill, but only one car fit that way.

Spacious cottage with all the amenities and a beautiful waterfront

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect cottage for our stay with two families with young children. Each family had their own bedroom with ensuite- and the kids had a bunk room to share x2.

Anthony (the owner) was lovely and very helpful to ensure we had everything we needed and available for contact. The waterfront was great! Our kids loved the beach and swimming dock/kayaks- water was clean and waist height off the dock. We had a fantastic campfire in the back area and space to run around. Bugs were awful (being June) so we ate indoors mostly, which was great too! Kitchen has full amenities with a variety of appliances and great BBQ so we ate well :)

Great location for running- biking- swimming, golf course 5 mins away- and many near by options for kids (Santas Village, Gravenhurst splash pad, Deerhurst daypass for indoor activities, and Bracebridge).

Accessibility wise there are a lot of stairs up to cottage from driveway (great exercise!) and there is a road separating the cottage and beach, so take care when in and out with children.

Overall a wonderful stay!

Very clean, well kept, modern property with beautiful views of the lake

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. We took a day trip to Algonquin since it's just about an hour away from there, as well. I would defiintely recommend to others as the price was quite reasonable too. Thanks!

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic cottage in a great spot. We stayed here and skied at Arrowhead (approximately 30 minutes away) and everyone in the group couldn't get over how modern and well-equipped the cottage was. A great place to spend a weekend or more.
