  • Loved the house, it was exactly what we were looking for. Lots of room to sleep us all and was very clean. Mary was kind and responsive and left some thoughtful touches. The info book had everything one could possibly need for the house and for stores and activities in the area.

  • We were so fortunate to spend a night at 40 Winks. This an outstanding space. The house is amazing. It is warm and comfortable It has everything you need and more for cooking. There are so many thoughtful touches that made our stay lovely. We really appreciated the high chair for our baby and the special toys left out to play with. Thanks so much, Mary and John. We will definitely be back here if we are lucky enough to return to Canada!

Mary and John are an example of hosts, who are reactive, thoughtful and provided us with all details needed and useful suggestions of activities. Wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy it all :) We all loved our stay there !

    Floriane2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Decorated for the season! Beautifully done! It is wonderful for us to be able to stay here and host family for dinner! The kitchen has all you'll need to cook, or bake if you want. I love the colourful plush towels lol. I maintain that you will be blown away by this place and all it has to offer. Super happy we managed to get a couple Geocacheas this time too!

  • My friends, husband and myself had an amazing weekend at Kelly’s cottage! The house was clean and extremely well equipped with all the cottaging necessities. The outdoor fire pit and paddle boat was the highlight of our trip. The fall colours and scenery were spectacular. The small town nearby had all the amenities required to get us through the weekend(groceries and LCBO wise). The decor is warm and cosy and perfect for a weekend getaway. I have personally recommended Kelly’s cottage to my family and friends.

    Nicole2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We spent three nights with our dogs in early October. Thoroughly enjoyed the cottage and property. Although too cold to swim, we were able to enjoy some afternoon sun on the back deck each day. Wifi and the smart tv were easy to use. We would definitely go back.

    Paul2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time. The property is exactly as you are in the photos, absolutely beautiful. Super relaxing, well equipped. Highly recommended.

    Natalia2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing and clean cottage with every amenity you can think of (backed up by one of the best team of hosts). Kelly/Mike/Cecile were on point at all times, were very quick to respond and made sure everything you need for a great cottage gateway, was available for the guests. Thank you so much to Kelly and team! Keep up the great work!

    Shaheer2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot for the family, loved the basement area for the kids! We got rained out but still had a blast

    Jamie2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot. Very peaceful on the lake!

    Dan2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is big and spacious, but also cozy! Check-in was easy and Kelly was a very thoughtful and considerate host. The cottage is very private we hardly saw anyone else on the lake or the roads. Be aware that there are several flights of stairs down to the cottage, so be careful especially when they are wet. The lake is deep and quiet and great for swimming and paddling.

    Diane2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent cottage right on the water. Everything in the listing is very accurate about the place. The Cottage is very spacious and easily accommodates 6 people. The kitchen is well stocked so so if you forgot anything chances are they have it. The host was very accommodating and responds quickly to questions/inquiries. I would recommend this place to everyone and would love to go back myself.

We hope you enjoy the experience and all the memories you will make!
  • We have stayed at this cottage twice because it is so lovely! It’s a perfect spot on a quiet lake, and the cottage is cozy and clean. Would highly recommend!

    Emily2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage experience for a short weekend getaway with kids, and pets! (We took our 6 year old dog who previously feared the water....he learned how to swim while here and now absolutely loves the water!)

    Helen2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amanda’s cottage. The lake was clean and we took advantage of fishing and water activities as we had a entire week of beautiful weather. Amanda sends you a wonderful guide with all information you may need to know during your stay. The neighbours on the lake were very friendly! We highly recommend Amanda’s cottage for your family vacation!

    Leann2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Amanda's place was great, clean and quiet. We really enjoyed the lake and the fish. Perfect for a family vacation! We highly recomened it!

    Ana2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • We completely and thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at Amanda's cottage on Clement Lake. The cottage was quaint and tidy. It had everything we needed, from a wide array of kitchen appliances to the huge BBQ to the two kayaks and paddleboat. My favourite part of the cottage was the massive tiered deck. I felt very peaceful sitting on the Adirondack chair at all times of the day. The lake was lovely - smaller and quiet, with clean and clear water. The Foodland, LCBO and pharmacy were very conveniently just down the road. There was one small water issue that arose on our second to last day, and Amanda and Jason were on top of it immediately, getting everything resolved remotely and in a very timely manner. This shows that they are dedicated and responsive owners who truly want their guests to have the best visit possible. I highly recommend staying at this cottage, and I hope to be back in the near future!

    Kim2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cottage! Clean and cute. Our dog loved the shallow entrances on both sides of the dock. The water was clear and the dock was perfect to lounge on all day. We had a great stay!

    Jennifer2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amanda’s cottage was a wonderful place for a family gathering. The location on Clement Lake is ideal- the lake community is small and quiet and all the services you need are very close by. We really enjoyed the spacious deck, terraced garden and dock. Amanda was very quick to respond to questions and dealt very graciously with a couple of small issues during our stay. She was a wonderful host and we hope to return next year. Thanks, Amanda, for sharing your beautiful cottage with us.

    Julie2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Amanda's cottage was great. The cottage was the perfect size for our family of four. The puzzles, games, and books that were made available were perfect for rainy days. We made good use of the dock for fishing and swimming and the fire pit was great for making s'mores and the paddle boat and kayaks were also great for exploring the lake and fishing. It was also nice to have a decent grocery store close by, the Wilberforce Foodland had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend Amanda's cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

    It is rustic on the inside, with a dresser and small cabinet. A double size bed. Hydro if you like or stay with solar light. The yard is fenced in,so dogs are welcome. I have 2 friendly dogs that are loose in the yard. They like other dogs. A canoe is available for a paddle and a fish, so bring along fishing gear. You may cook on an open fire and bring along a cooler to keep things cold! We supply firewood! There is an outhouse for your outdoor needs! One or two people may stay in cabin.
    There are a variety of lakes nearby with beautiful beaches to swim at. Also, at the end of the lane way is a 4 wheeler trail to enjoy or to bicycle or just walk and take in the views!
    Tory Hill is a small hamlet with no stores, we have a park. You can travel to nearby towns gooderham or wilberforce that are a 10 minute drive away for all your shopping needs. Also, Haliburton is half hour or less away.
  • This place is a perfect rustic getaway. Loved everything about it. Cooking on the fire, the cozy one room cabin decor, Chelsea the sweetest golden retriever and the row boat which took me about the small lake/marsh where I could admire the fall leaves and just unwind. Anita’s partner brought me more wood when the pile got low and also provided a large jug of water upon request. The cabin was a bit cold even with the heater going because temperatures were hovering around zero but I was plenty warm when sleeping in the comfortable bed. All in all a great experience. Thanks so much Anita for your hospitality. You have a wonderful place and it’s a beautiful thing that you share it with others.

    Susan2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • A real tiny house experience. Kind hosts and friendly dogs, who kept our dog company during our stay. The house was cozy and had a beautiful view of the lake. Best part of the night was the camp fire. Would definitely come back again! Don’t forget to try their blueberry pie :)

    Pachakuteq2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Anita's Rustic Cabin is perfect for anyone looking to get away from the hustle of civilization, decompress with nature's stillness and just be raw. The scenery is absolutely beautiful; with a view of the lake to wake up to and a fire pit to enjoy at night while stargazing. She provides canoes as well to enjoy a relaxing time on the placid lake. It is incredibly peaceful and I cannot wait to return and utilize all she has to offer on this amazing oasis. Thanks again Anita for sharing your sanctuary! Sylvia

  • Anita's place is exactly as described, it's a very nice property and is very clean. She is an amazing host, will be definitely coming back next time I plan a trip to this area.

  • My dogs and I had a wonderful two days at Anita's cabin. What an incredible spot, so quiet and tranquil, and the cabin was so clean and cosy. All of the little extra touches really made our stay special. We'll be back!

    Karen2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed in Anita’s cabin for a very quiet and simple momcation. The cabin was clean and comfortable with many cute touches. The outhouse is adorable! I loved that there was firewood supplied. Anita was so sweet to bring me a delicious tart in the evening. I went for a paddle in the canoe on the small lake, but also from the property was able to spot a garter snake, many monarchs, a bald eagle, and several otters playing. The sunset was beautiful. One of the dogs liked to hang out and she was very friendly. Would come back for some quiet time!

    Jamie2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay here! The tiny house was so comfortable. The view was spectacularly beautiful, especially star gazing at night! Rowing on the water was so peaceful and quiet. Anita was an exceptional host! And the dogs were lovely to have around too! Beautiful piece of paradise.

  • Fantastic time at Eze's beautiful place! His parents were there to greet us and make sure we could access the house and had everything we needed; so friendly. We were three families and did a lot of cooking- kitchen was big and well-appointed. Plenty of space, great views. Close to Sir Sam's for winter fun. Would love to come back in the summer and spend time on the private lake. Thank you, Ricardo and Claudia!

    Scott2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Justin2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our girls trip was a success due to this amazing cottage! The host's were super sweet and responsive to any questions we had, and even left a bottle of wine for us to drink! It is great for large groups to dine with the long kitchen table, and lots of separate areas for different groups of people to hang out. Would love to come back in the summer time to spend more time outdoors! Thanks again.

    Alyssa2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Eze and his parents are excellent hosts. They greeted us when we reached at the cottage and gave us the tour of the property. The hosts are very friendly. We had a wonderful family retreat at the cottage. It was a very relaxing labour day long weekend that will always be remembered. Views are spectacular from almost every room. House was super clean and we didn't have any issues. Lake by the cottage is very private and not accessible by anyone else. There is a paddle boat, canoe and kayak on the property. We enjoyed most of our day time in the lake doing boating or relaxing on the deck. Lots of amenities in the cottage are available and we really enjoyed them like hot tub, BBQ Grill, fire pit etc. We highly recommend this Hill Top Lake House and will visit again.

    Kashif2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Eze and his parents were excellent hosts. Great communication and very friendly. We had a great family trip at the cottage. There was plenty of space for our group of 9 (kids and adults) to enjoy meals together or spend time in smaller groups in different areas. There are great views from the many windows in the house which was lovely. The lake by the house is a small lake but it is very private and we had it all to ourselves. There is a pedal boat, a canoe and a two-person kayak for use which everyone enjoyed. The water in the lake is very clear. The bottom of the lake is a muddy finish so it is best to swim in the deeper part of the lake off the floating deck as opposed to walking into the water from the shore (you can take one of the boats to get to the floating deck). The deck by the shore has a few chairs where you can relax in the sun and enjoy the view. We had a very comfortable stay at the cottage and would recommend to anyone looking to relax and spend time together in a beautiful setting.

    Winnie2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend this space. Great communication, went above and beyond with little touches, great amenities, very caring hosts!

    Michelle2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Albert is a congenial and welcoming host. The house (and bed!) is comfortable, clean, and well equipped. Decor is very cool - both inside and out. And driving an electric vehicle we especially appreciated Albert's offer of an extension cord to top up our car overnight!

    Doug2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing place! It’s perfectly placed at the northwestern edge of the local geocaching tour. But we’d have happily gone out of our way for this gem. The cottage is spacious and eclectically decorated. Exploring the art and collectibles was part of the fun. I just wish the weather had been better so that we could’ve enjoyed the fire pit. Next time!

    Julia2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Hippo in a Birdcage was a homey, funky place to stay, convenient to local attractions and neighbouring towns. Albert and Sandra’s hospitality was excellent, and they truly welcomed us and made us feel at home.

    Welcome to Pineridge Cottage! Take advantage of our beautiful cottage sipping a "docktail" in a Muskoka chair while taking in the local wildlife from our sandy beach. Or take a spin in the paddleboat and explore the lake and visit spectacular Algonquin Park. In winter, snowshoe or ice fish to the sound of the wind through the trees, and enjoy the nearby snowmobile and skiing trails. You will feel a million miles away from it all, but conveniently 5 minutes to a liquor and grocery store :)
    Open concept with lots of shared space for entertaining. Newly renovated, clean and airy. Comfortable for the whole family but enough space to get away from them! Stunning outdoor space, with dock, fire table, fire pit, hammock, lots of seating space, picnic table for outdoor dining.
    Our cottage neighbours are quiet and respectful of each other and use this lake haven as a way to relax. Please do not have music on past 10pm and refrain from playing loud music on the dock.
  • We had a love stay at Pineridge Cottage. James and Meagan were very attentive during the booking process and made check-in a breeze. As for the cottage, well it is beautiful and a great spot to kick back and relax. The bedrooms are huge with very comfortable beds. Perfect for a few couples getting away to cottage country. The view from the master bedroom is a great way to awake every morning. The place was very clean and has been recently renovated with lots of great touches. Great open concept kitchen that allows a group to cook together while sipping on a few glasses of wine. Then after dinner a great comfy couch to watch a movie. The internet was surprisingly fast for cottage country. Lastly the property is calm and quiet and it was fun to explore some of the small trails nearby. We hope to return in the near future and hopefully experience the spot in the summer.

  • Our stay at Pineridge exceeded our expectations. We had such a lovely time in James and Meagan's place - they've obviously gone to a lot of trouble to make it homey, comfortable and (most importantly) warm. Really neatly laid out, we had breakfast looking over the lake and evenings playing games in front of the fire, one night, even a barbecue (mid-February!). We didn't hear another soul while we were there and haven't slept so well in months. Situtated on Lake Grace and surrounded by trailpaths, we had a winter-wonderland right at our doorstep which was great fun to explore on the snowshoes! Nearby Wilberforce offered everything we needed in terms of groceries etc, while Halliburton was only half an hour away AND gave us the chance to go husky-sledding, fulfilling a lifelong dream!  All in all, great time, great place - we'll definitely come again!

    Ben2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Amazing location, stunning views and a great cottage with amazing amenities. The host was super helpful, the information was spot on and the cottage was clean, spacious, stylish and excellently appointed.

  • Such a wonderful weekend! The pictures definitely do not do it justice! Would recommend to anyone who wants a peaceful retreat! It was very convieniently located for some ice fishing which was an added bonus!

    Sarah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great weekend at Carol Ann and Aaron's cottage. The weather was gorgeous and the cottage was so cute and just like the pictures! I had a few questions and Aaron always got back to me very quickly and was very helpful. This cottage had everything we needed and is in a beautiful spot! The wall of windows provided tons of natural light and an amazing view. I would love to come back and stay at this cottage during the summer because I imagine the lake/property/view is even more stunning. Thanks for a great stay!

    Tara2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t hesitate to book here! Beautiful spot! Easy access in the winter, everything you need and Aaron is super fast to respond if you need anything.

    Jeff2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Aaron and Carol Ann’s place is a real gem. It’s exactly as it looks in the photos with a great large open concept kitchen and living and dining room with tons of natural light. Aaron was really quick with responding to any questions and let us check in early as we were traveling a good distance to get there. The fire was roaring when we got there, which was a nice touch. Miskwabi Lake is beautiful in the winter so I can only imagine how nice it is in summer. Overall the place is fantastic, neighbors are nice and very helpful and the hosts are 10/10. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks Aaron and Carol Ann!

  • Solitude, quiet, calm. This is what you get here. It's basic, but has everything you need. Dave and Dan(Son) are great to deal with.

    Kevin2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was everything we needed and more. My partner and I went to the cabin for a winter get away. It was right on the water with a beautiful view. They were super helpful the entire time when I had any questions. Definitely recommend for anyone who wants to get out into nature without all the extras.

    Emily2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Dave’s place is amazing if you like silence and getaway from the crowd. The view, lake, surroundings were spectacular. Dave welcomed us even though we were late and he was very friendly with us. There were kettle,toaster,pan and many cooking utensils but you can also bring yours. We enjoyed the place especially with fall colours. Thank you!

    Ezgi2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful place and the stay was amazing. If your looking for a simple getaway look no further! Amazing lake, amazing place, and amazing hosts!

    Emily2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy spot, right on the lake. The fall colors where amazing. Host said "hi, come up if you need anything'. Then we didn't see him again, it was perfect. Fridge, toaster, kettle, heated and clean. Outhouse is clean as well. Awesome place to lay your head.

    Kris2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely adorable cabin right on the water. It is beside another cottage so not totally alone, but that didn’t bother us at all. You may want to bring your own air mattress. There are multiple provided which was very nice, but we just liked ours better. Hosts were great and super responsive. Beautiful lake, gorgeous views, cozy cabin and secluded location.

    Ashley2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Due to unforeseen circumstances we were not able to go to Dave and Dans place as planned. BUT I must say that Dave ( Dave and I communicated the entire time ) was amazing. His replies were quick and he was very understanding and kind. He also offered his place up for us to go again in the future. Really appreciate the communication. Thank you!

    Matthew2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place for an Ontario weekend getaway! The cabin is the perfect size for two and is right on the lake, the bbq makes meals easy, and we loved having a private fire pit and dock for swimming. Dave was also kind enough to let us use his canoe, which was definitely a weekend highlight. We’d recommend to anyone!

    Our cottage is located on Big Straggle Lake in Harcourt Park, nestled at the southern point of Algonquin Park in the Haliburton Highlands. The cottage has a great view, southern exposure, and good swimming at the dock. Whether you choose to relax on the dock, go for a swim, enjoy the view from the deck, fish, use the pedal boats or row boat, go for a hike, or enjoy some of the family friendly events run at the Harcourt Park community centre, you will enjoy your time here.
    Big Straggle Lake offers year-round fishing, great swimming, and we have a row boat and pedal boat that you may use to explore the lake, several islands, and even a hidden passageway to Little Straggle Lake. Our dock is large enough for sunning yourself on hot days or just hanging out with friends on the chairs and picnic table. There is a fire pit overlooking the lake with plenty of seating to host your party (and firewood at the ready), and a grassy area beside the cottage on which lawn games can be enjoyed. We have a full size kitchen with a double sink, microwave, stove/oven, full-sized fridge, and BBQ for you to enjoy. At your disposal are many other personal appliances such as a coffee maker, toaster, Actifry (alternative to deep-fryer), George Foreman grill, and blender. There is plenty of storage space for whatever you bring up as well. The living room has a widescreen TV, DVD player, and VCR. There is a small TV, DVD player, and VCR in the first bedroom (the one with four bunk beds). We have lots of VHS tapes and a few DVDs to watch, books to read, and games to play, should you find yourself stuck inside on a rainy day or need something to do in the evening. In the living room, there is also a wood-burning stove to which you may curl up to after you build yourself a fire in the evening.

Dining - Open on the weekends, The Olde Ridge is a great place to eat although it can be very busy. Entertainment - The Village Playhouse - Bancroft Highlands Cinema - Kinmount: this is a really cool theater built in the woods attached to a house. They show the newest movies and house a museum of movie memorabilia. It is well worth the drive to check this one out. Adventures South Algonquin Trails - go horseback riding on the trails at the southern end of Algonquin Park. Located on Elephant Lake Road (15-20 min drive) The area is known as the Geocaching Capital of Canada. So bring along your GPS and go out on the hunt. There are no caches in Harcourt Park as it is private property but there are many that are not too far away, including one of ours ;)
  • Darryl's cottage is exactly what you want if you're looking for a true Canadian getaway. Set amongst the trees and overlooking a lake, it's the perfect destination to unwind and explore what the surrounding area has to offer. We spent our days walking in Algonquian Park and our nights cozied up in front of the indoor fireplace. The cottage is equipped with all the necessities to make you feel at home. If you bring your own groceries, you have everything you need to cook and enjoy your meal. If you're not prepared to be chef, there is a lovely diner close by ( Algonquian Diner) that will serve up breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoyed the board games and Nintendo that was made available to us. Darryl was a wonderful host. He was friendly, quick with replies and clear with his communication. The overall experience was one that has left us looking forward to our next visit.

    Skipper2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Darryl was an amazing host. He was quick at responding to any queries I had. We loved his cottage! It was homey and everything we needed was right there. My sister especially got a kick out of the 90’s stuff he has in the cottage, i.e. the original Nintendo, the vhs player, vhs tapes and my 9 year old loved all the Disney movies on vhs too:) He has kayaks and pedal boats. Bored you will not! The view was beautiful! The lake gorgeous and serene! It was just an overall fantastic trip! Thank you Darryl!

    Rachelle2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Darryl's cottage was a dream! It was exactly what we were looking for, a beautiful homey cottage with amazing views and cottage feels. The wood stove inside was a perfect bonus for when it got a little chilly at night and the fire pit with lake views, was even better. Waking up to coffees on the docks was another nice bonus. We couldn't have asked for a better getaway and we look forward to hopefully staying here again! Thanks Darryl!

    Kim2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the fall and the leaves and view were totally breathtaking! Spent our time in front of the fire reading in their comfy chairs. It had everything we needed in the kitchen and in general, (including kayaks!) to have a great stay. Right by Algonquin Park, too! We hiked the High Falls trail, which was stunning.

    Anna2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! Beautiful location with an easy check in. Lots of information about the cottage and area provided. Darryl was very responsive and a great host.

    Julia2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • When I booked I did not expected that fun so I made plan to go algonquin park but when I went to the place I loved it soo much that I spent my two days only at cottage and Darryl is really nice host with quick response. He took each and every point of facility even he provided Signal Booster as there was no network at that Place.. Amazing 10 on 10 everthing. Will plan next time to the place again

    Siya2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place. Very beautiful and clean. Great view and super cozy cottage. Will definitely come again.

    Elena2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Darryl's place for four days in July and had a wonderful time. He provided us with everything we needed to have a memorable stay and a complete cottage experience. Thank you for your thoughtfulness regarding the water jugs and propane tank. Our family had fun exploring the lake with the kayaks and paddle boats - and counting all the black bears among the property. We definitely recommend Darryl's cottage to everyone.

  • Very nice cottage, quiet lake with no big boats. Easy directions and accommodating host. We would definitely rent again.

    Teresa2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • we enjoyed our stay at Joseph’s lovely cottage very much. the cottage is very clean and cozy. it rained for two nights and we loved hearing the rain on the amazingly high ceilings whilst having a nice warm fire inside. the lake is beautiful we managed to canoe the entire lake over our long weekend stay with our wee dogs which is our favourite part of cottaging. thank you for sharing your home and canoe with our little family. we loved every moment!!

    Terra2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a week here with our two young kids and loved the cozy and comfortable cottage feel. It’s nestled amongst the trees and has a stunning lake view from the lower deck. Of note, it’s east facing so no afternoon sun, which was the only draw back as we were a group of keen swimmers and it gets dark by the dock after 1pm. Joseph was available at a moments notice and provided a useful manual so both expectations and amenities are clearly detailed. I’d love to go back without kids as very quiet and peaceful location.

    Lisa2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Joseph's cottage! It was perfect for our family of 4. We loved the lake and the private location. Joseph replied to our questions very quickly. Would love to visit again.

    Dany2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Joseph's cottage was a great getaway from home. Very private and cozy cottage. The lower deck was amazing! I would recommend this cottage and would probably stay there again. However some basic amenities could be provided. Not a lot of basic stuff is provided so you need to be fully prepared before you go but it was overall a very good and relaxing stay. Joseph was very accommodating with check in/check out and the communication was great throughout our stay!

    Cindy2019-07-09T00:00:00Z

Lea was a great host and I will definitely come back next time I'm in the area.

As mentioned on Airbnb, this house is located on the bank of Allan Lake in Algonquin park. Peaceful and beautiful. Highly recommended.

    Nakul2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Lan's cottage. It was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The view of the lake was spectacular and we enjoyed star gazing at night from the beautiful dock. The fire pit is also very well done, the benches are great touch! Lan was very easy to communicate with and extremely organized, these little touches were very much appreciated. We hope to visit again, highly recommend!

  • Beautiful and spacious cottage ! Me and my girlfriend stayed for a couple days to get away from the city , was very clean and very modern , only negative thing I can say is the dirt road into the cottage, would definitely return 👍👍👍

    Sunset Point is our charming, private cottage with 256 feet of pristine waterfront on crystal clear Esson Lake in the Haliburton Highlands. This 1.75 acre, lakefront oasis is south-west facing and thus gets sun all day long. It is also flanked by forested crown land to the north elevating it's beauty and privacy. ***Newly built Muskoka room with dining and lounging area! ***All new flooring throughout! ***New dock extension and floating raft are now in the water! ***WIFI is included!
    Our spot is perfect for an extended family or a small group of friends. Esson Lake has a limestone bottom which naturally purifies the water. A new dock and ladder (2017) allows for easy entry into the lake. Water depth off the dock is approx. 11 ft in early summer so it is great for diving down and swimming over to the floating raft. There is no gradual shore. Natural landscaping was added this year to allow for more sunbathing spots in sun and shaded areas. There are approximately 30-40 gradual stairs leading down to the dock. The cottage itself has a new back deck (2017), new front deck (2018), new metal roof (2018), all new siding, soffit and fascia (2018), fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge and stove, cozy bedrooms with some storage and a brand new Muskoka room with dining area/lounge and a den (2018). Our antique dining table seats 6 comfortably but extra chairs are available. We added a new BBQ with a direct propane line this summer (2018). There are several spots around the cottage to enjoy a bite outside or simply to lounge. Fire pits are located at the water's edge and beside the cottage. The WETT certified wood burning stoves on both levels heat the cottage up in addition to the propane furnace for cool nights and autumn days. Unlimited parking. Master Bedroom and Bedroom #2 are on main level. In addition to the single bunk in Bedroom #2, there is a crib mattress suitable for a toddler. Bedroom #3 is in the semi-finished basement. There is a queen bed, and a double/single bunk. Baby pack-n-play is available free of charge. There is also a double bed and pull-out futon (double) in the main entertainment room in the basement.
    Wilberforce is the closest small town. It is known as the geocaching (what's that?) capital of Canada! You will also find a Foodland, Agnew's General Store, an LCBO, gas, community centre and small park. If you require wifi while in town, you can enter the community centre or simply sit in the park and connect for free. Likewise, Agnew's and the Wilberforce library have free wifi with no protected password. Beyond Wilberforce, you may wish to visit the town of Haliburton (20 min drive). Set on Head lake, you will find shops, larger grocery stores, restaurants and more amenities. Some guests enjoy renting water equipment from the outdoor stores on the Main Street. Bancroft is about 30 minutes away and Peterborough is about an hour away.
  • Nice cottage. Amazing location and great views. The cottage is surrounded by trees and right on the lake.

  • The host was great, very responsive to all my questions prior to our stay, very accommodating to our needs. The places were exactly as it’s described, very clean, kitchen has all the things you need, well organized. The fall views are great around the cottage, even much more beautiful than Algonquin park, we had a great Thanksgiving weekend! My daughter left a few words in the guest book, she spent her 9th birthday here, we all loved the stay, and We would love to come back another time!

    Jesmin2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing, quiet and clean cottage. The sunrise/sunset was breath taking. It had everything that we needed and more. The water was so calm that we got to use the kayaks, row boat and pebble board. Had a great time! Would love to go back!

    Alexsandra2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Krista's cottage was lovely. A perfect mix of old and new and sparkling clean. We loved the waterfront- it was gorgeous. We will be back!

  • Mae's place is beautiful, cozy, & clean. The cottage and cabin are beautifully decorated and had everything my family & I needed. The outside patio is spacious and has plenty of outdoor chairs, a picnic table, and two hammocks right by the lake which our kids enjoyed swinging on all day . The lake is truly beautiful and is very serene. We enjoyed using the canoe and paddle boat to discover the lake. We also had a chance to discover the forest behind the cottage. My family and I had a wonderful time at Mae's cottage!

    Ali2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mae's. We especially loved the access to all the kayaks, paddle board and canoe - no need to take turns! Main cottage and cabin were clean and had the basics we needed. Great cozy weekend with beautiful surroundings.

    Marié2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at the lake. Lake was great for swimming and kayaking. Cottage had everything we needed and we enjoyed the evenings star gazing. Just a great week overall and very relaxing.

    Tracey2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • A Little Piece of Heaven on Earth is truly a fitting name. We had an amazing 3 week stay! The cottage and lake were beautiful - everything exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful place with us Mae.

    Matt2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Mae's place was adorable. The main cottage and bunkie (own bathroom too!) were clean and nicely decorated. Mae even left us some wine and truffles (Nice!). The lake was quiet and peaceful. We really appreciated all the water toys, wood, movies and board games! Mae was easy to communicate with and our stay was wonderful. We would definitely recommend Mae's place.

    Cassie2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this place! Very cute. Mae was incredibly considerate and communication was amazing. She gave easy directions and was very fast to respond when I had a question. The place itself is quite adorable. There are two accommodations - the main cottage is very simple, but everything we needed. Nice fire place that had pre-cut, covered up wood available (super helpful when it rained!!!), and a nice range of games and old school VHS/DVDs which we loved having on in the background while we sat in on the rainy day. There is also a guest cabin which is a little newer, which is great for those who want some privacy. My boyfriend and I took the main cabin, while my sister and her husband used the guest house. Worked out perfectly! The deck and outdoor area is awesome!!!! The lake is gorgeous, really quiet, and Mae had alllllllll the toys! Kayaks, Canoe, Stand Up Paddle Board, plenty of muskoka chairs, etc. There was plenty of fresh drinking water provided, and sheets on the beds. The listing says to bring your own blankets and towels, which of course, I forgot!!!!! So our nights were a little chilly - but we made do with wearing lots of layers. Don't forget to bring things like tea towels and basic food items like sugar. Though the kitchen was very well equipped with utensils, there wasn't much in the way of basic foods. Better to bring all the bits you need for cooking! All in all a wonderful stay. Highly recommend!!

    Roslyn2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Mae is a really responsive host who is really accommodating. If you’re looking to disconnect a little this is the right place to stay. Look up at the stars at night on the dock, play some boards (so many provided), and many water activities to keep guests busy. Would love to come back and highly recommend.

    Cameron2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place, as other reviewers have said the pictures don’t do it justice. Super close to the grocery store, LCBO and a small general store. Great trails nearby ranging from hikes at Silent Lake Park to flat ground at Tory Hill Park. Hosts were responsive and accommodating, will definitely be looking to come back during the summer months!

    Siobhan2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for snowmobiling!!! The trail (gorgeous) is right at the end of the road, and with the hut tub at the cottage, it was perfect!! Was a great stay!

    Pat2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Get ready to relax. my wife and I went there to get away from it all and take it easy. Mission accomplished. Close enough to town to stock up on what you need and far enough away that it is a private and quite setting.

    Joe2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Super easy to get to even in a snow storm! The hot tub was fantastic. Great little place for a weekend getaway, would love to come back in the summer.

    Rachael2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is lovely, very cozy and has everything you need, we were lucky enough to enjoy the hot tub in a blizzard. Very special for this South African. The location is perfect, it was a pure winter wonderland. I also left something at the cottage and it was promptly posted to me by Trevor thank you kindly!

    Mikhaela2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is so much nicer than seen in the pictures! It is very cozy and allows you to feel like home! The hot tub is truly amazing! The cottage is also better equipped than expected: e.g. coffee filters, Salt&Pepper. Would always stay again. Nevertheless, one has to keep in mind (especially when travelling from overseas) that there is an additional fee for linen and towels.

  • Tracey's place is lovely. She's a very responsive and friendly host. The cottage is on a beautiful, clean lake (great for swimming!) surrounded by lots of nature and woods. The kitchen had all the supplies we needed to make full meals. Definitely would visit again!

    Zeid2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Tracey's cottage was perfect for a three-girls' long weekend - it was exactly what we wanted. Rustic, comfortable, charming and cozy. The surroundings were quiet - no loud motor boats and neighbours waved when passing by. The wood stove came in handy on the cooler nights and the swimming was top-notch. We played lots of cards, listened to music and ate decadent BBQ. Check-in was easy-peasy and the cottage was stocked with amenities. Tracey was on-hand to answer any questions, though we didn't have any 'cause everything was clear. All in all a five star experience! Thanks!

    Emily2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first Airbnb experience and we absolutely loved it. We decided to take a mother daughter weekend away trip, and fit our needs perfectly. We loved the quick access to the lake (which is super clean and fun to swim in) and the floor to ceiling window looking out to the water. This place was exactly as described, very clean and even had a slow cooker to cook our chili in! As mentioned in other comments, the immediate drive into the cottage is very steep, but once you get used to driving up and down the hill it's no problem. Would definitely recommend if you want a fun summer cottage experience! Thanks Tracey!! :)

    Denis2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • The lake was great for swimming, kayaking and canoeing. The cottage has a nice view of the lake and the sunsets are amazing. Bbq was great, beds and sofas were comfy. We never met Tracey but she was very quick to respond to my messages and left clear instructions in the cottage.

    Tim2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. This cottage is the perfect size for 2 people. 4 is doable but I think it would feel a little cramped. The cottage was very comfortable. Really comfy bed. Tracey provides lots of amenities which makes things easy (toilet paper, paper towel, spices, olive oil, water, etc). Great spot for swimming and hanging on the dock. The DVD player came in handy for when it rained. Would definitely stay here again.

    Rebecca2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is absolutely beautiful. A perfect getaway for those who wish to get out of the city and experience some beautiful nature. Ideal for 4 people, maybe 5-6 if you're all okay to be in close proximity with each other. The water and dock were perfect for lounging and cooling off in the summer sun. Be warned, you are in the woods so you have a high chance of getting slightly eaten by bugs. However Tracey provides bug spray and bug screen hoods for those very rough times. Not only does Tracey provide these, but she provides anything you may have forgotten with her fully stocked closets; water jugs, paper towel, firewood etc. The water was gorgeous, however the incline to the water is quite steep and mostly compact dirt with some loose areas and a few stone steps. If you have mobility concerns just be aware that is the path to the waterfront. The road into the cottage is relatively short but is a dirt road, single lane and quite hilly so also be warned that 4 wheel drive may be needed and great care while driving it is very needed. The stove top was usable, however the oven was not. Using the BBQ was the ideal route for cooking as it can get quite warm in the cottage and summer BBQ-ing is always fun at a cottage. There is not shower or tub, but the bathroom is very nice regardless, with hot and cold water easily accessible. The inside space of the cottage was perfect for us 4 and was incredibly nice for being described as "rustic". If you want a beautiful cottage experience this is the place to go.

    Megan2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • My family had a great stay at Tracey's cottage. She was able to accommodate us for just a couple of nights mid week (which is what we were hoping for and not always possible in the summer). The cottage is right on the lake and has very nice water for swimming. The fans in the cottage were very helpful as it was quite warm while we were there. I loved that there were books available to read and I hadn't thought to bring my own! I would definitely recommend her place to anyone looking to get away and unwind.

    Katie2019-07-19T00:00:00Z

  • What a great place! Spacious, clean and picturesque. We are looking forward to coming back later this year

    sandra2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great big cottage with plenty of space for our group of 13. Kitchen and bathrooms were recently renovated so that was a huge plus. The property itself is nice and flat which made it great for spending time outside playing around. Inside the cottage we enjoyed the large satellite TV and fireplace. The bedrooms on the second floor were nice and spacious and the main bedroom with the walkout balcony was awesome. Amazing views of the lake from inside the cottage.

    Glen2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Glen’s cottage. We were a group of 13 people and all slept comfortably. In addition to that, Glen also had tons of seating and activities outside which was extremely helpful for a group rental. The view and waterfront access was one of the main reasons we booked this cottage and it did not disappoint. The cottage is rustic (some wear and tear, older furnishings) but it was perfect for our group and anyone looking for a true cottage rental.

    Sarah2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, with all the tools you need for an amazing stay. Neighbours are a bit close, but for the most part keeps to them self. Had 12 people stay for the weekend and had enough room to accommodate everyone. Glen, was quick to respond and made sure we knew all the rules for the city dump. Amazing weekend and would 100% book again!!

    Erika2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Glen is very responsive, resourceful and patient with all my requests. Location is very private and quiet, lake is very beautiful and great for fishing. We enjoyed the kayak and peddle boating provided. Mattresses are too soft for me, however I still had great sleep during my stay. It would be convenient to have washroom upstairs.

  • Lovely cottage, Very roomy, comfortable and attractive, lots of accommodation The master bedroom has a nice balcony and breathtaking view of the lake. Great kitchen, well equipped and very easy to make elaborate meals. Lovely screened sun-room for dining and relaxing. The lake is the best, spectacular and beautiful, sparkling blue and surrounded by rolling forested hills. It's quiet, not busy, big enough for days of exploration with Glen's canoes and paddle boats, but not so big that it gets wavy and choppy water. Nice swimming, too. Bancroft is an easy 15 minute drive away with nice restaurants and stores. We enjoyed a terrific concert with live music at the Bancroft Village Playhouse, just minutes from this cottage. Lovely time, would stay again !!

    Our 2 1/2 bedroom cottage is located right on the fresh clean waters of Cardiff Lake. It comfortably sleeps 8 people and has its own private beach, and fire pit. The cottage is fully equipped and has a propane bbq on the deck.
    A neat and tidy cottage right on the water with an amazing lake view. This cottage has has sweet and thoughtful details that will make you smile at their charm. Beautiful outdoor fire pit surrounded by rustic stump seats overlooking beautiful Cardiff Lake. Listen to the calling loons, with the crackling fire while star watching. A perfect Canadian cottage experience.
    I love the quiet and the view. There is something so calming about the forest and the lake that all worries melt away. I love swimming across the lake early in the morning and watching the loons take their babies fishing for breakfast right by the dock. Sometimes I like to go for a hike along the old logging trail behind the cottage and follow it to the old beaver dam. Occasionally a moose, otter or beaver can be spotted. The air is so fresh and clean. Everything slows right down and I am able to breath again.
  • this cottage was very clean, with lots of seasoned firewood that easily kept the cottage warm at night. Lots of towels for use, and a well stocked kitchen. The lack of any TV or radio was an added benefit, we enjoyed the peace and quiet. The fall colors on the lake were splendid.

    Fern2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Kiki’s lakeside cottage is the perfect getaway from the city, yet still had the comforts of home with everything you need - really appreciated the indoor fireplace and fully equipped kitchen. Thank you for being a wonderful host!

  • This place is great, and Kiki was super lovely to communicate with, even after I made a mistake with my booking. The space is comfortable and the kitchen well equipped with all you could need. The setting is fantastic. Couldn’t have asked for more

    Rosanna2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Small picturesque lake with a fabulous view and a waterfront sitting area. Accomodations are very clean and spacious, also with a wonderful view of the lake. Communication with Kiki is very easy, she is very responsive and attentive. Will definitely recommend to friends and family

  • My stay this weekend at Kiki's cottage was very enjoyable and comfortable. The cottage was very clean when we arrived and we loved that it was right on the lakeside. We took advantage of the lawn chairs on her dock and the canoe that came with the cottage as well. Inside the cottage, there were enough towels and soap for all 8 of my friends. Her kitchen was stocked with all condiments and appliances (ie. toaster, pots & pans, water boiler, hot drink carafe, microwave) we needed to cook all our meals. We wished we could've stayed longer than 2 nights, we definitely want to come back soon!

  • Great place, cute cabins. Not luxury but has everything you need. Great swimming in the lake :)

    K.A.2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding location and place. This is a very peaceful place, great for relaxing by the lake and exploring the many park trails. A great place to fish as well. We will be back!

    Jon2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most magical time there. The view by the water is stunning. And it’s so relaxing to swim, or row, or just relax. We also took the opportunities to visit Algonquin Park : the High Falls hike was close by, easy-ish (still over an hour), and beautiful (the swim was most exciting, but at your own risk). The bugs were not so bad at the cottage, but they were hell on the trails. The cottage feels homy : not too small, simple. The internet access was wonderful, as well as the tv to watch the FIFA world cup. The downsides maybe: you have to pack up everything, beds sheets, towels, toilet paper. But not to worry, the Foodland is 5 minutes away and was very promising. Also, we couldn’t drink the tap water. Lorne is the best host ever. Best getaway ever, wonderful vacation !

    Mathilde2018-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first but certainly not our last visit to this little piece of heaven on the lake. We were drawn to the listing because of the fact that they have everything a small family like ours could need and they were happy to welcome us with our beautiful dog as well. But once we arrived and saw just how perfect the place was, with everything you could need to not only cook inside, bit bbq and fire pit too, we already started planning our next trip. Going in June just before the season starts meant we had the entire place to ourselves, gorgeous lake and boats etc. We missed the beer store before getting there but Lorne hooked us up with some cold ones to make our welcome just perfect. This red cabin is so great for a two couples or a couple with kids and we spent a lot of time there daydreaming of returning with all of our friends and their families, with the cabins side by side all facing the lake it is ideal for multiple family vacationing, where everybody has their own space to retreat to in between parties on the doc. This is the perfect cottage experience, one we can not afford to own, at an amazing value! We will most definitely be back and soon!

    Karen2018-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and beautiful views of the lake. Lorne was very welcoming and we had an excellent relaxing vacation.

    Don2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lorne was an amazing host. From check-in to check-out, it was seamless. He was there whenever we needed him and patiently answered all our silly questions. We got to meet his partner Vanessa too and she was absolutely wonderful. The cottage we stayed in was equipped with all the essentials to store food and prepare meals. There was a TV with Bell ExpressVu and it also had an HDMI output. That allowed us to connect our laptops and stream directly. Plus unlimited wifi that's included in the cost. Most places charge extra for bbq, propane tank, canoe etc - these were all included in the price. The only thing we paid for additional was wood for campfire - and it's only $10 for a whole wheelbarrow full of wood. We had an unobstructed view of the lake from the cottage living room. Overall - it was simply amazing and we can't wait to come back again next summer!

  • Park Cottages is a scenic, family friendly resort on a beautiful lake. The docks are spacious and allow you to mingle with other guests. Firepits are private. The cottage was clean and filled our needs perfectly. Our hosts were very accomadating, friendly and on call. I would defenetly recommend park cottages for a vacation destination in beautiful Haliburton Highlands!!

    Safonda2017-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in this cottage for one night when we were visiting Algonquin park. This is a very nice cottage, surrounded by another few colorful cottages. The only grocery store is also nearby. We really enjoy the staying there, especially the walk near the lake in the morning.

  • This is my second time staying at Kiki’s place. The space is relaxed and cozy, the view of the lake is lovely, and the location is pretty much perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors. Kiki is a thoughtful and genuine host. I hope to return again!

    Melina2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Kiki's place is a nice cozy cottage with a beautiful location on a lake. She's an excellent host: extremely responsive, the place was very clean, and she even built a fire for us so that we just light the fireplace right away when we arrived. I'd be interested to see what it's like in the summer.

    Kieran2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Kiki’s place is very cozy, exceptionally clean and is on an amazing lake with lots of wildlife and trails. The location is perfect, the cottage is great! My 2 sons and I fished 3 different trout lakes all within 20 mins of the cottage! Highly recommend Kiki’s place, you won’t be disappointed!

    David2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic cottage to rent. It was spotless and clean. Lots of bedding available. Beds were comfy. The only thing we had to provide was our beverages and food. We stayed in the winter and it was beautiful. I imagine the summer would be fantastic! Thank you to Kiki for being a great host. The paintings on the walls are beautiful.

    Julie2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kiki's cabin is a great escape from the city, beautiful and relaxing and located right on a beautiful hiking trail. I would reccomend it to anyone!

    Michael2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice location. Lake was frozen over and we had a great time having the lake to our selves and enjoyed the drive as well. Not to long drive from toronto. The local gas/lcbo/coffe shop had great coffee. The wood stove was amazing.

    Kory2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a super-lovely cottage in a beautiful area. The host is very kind and helpful. Highly recommended!

    Stijn2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and his parents and I all stayed over at Kiki’s cottage for a few days before the new year. We had an excellent time hiking the near by trails -just outside the cottage! Kiki has stocked the cottage with lots of board games as well so there was never a dull moment by the fire in the evening. Waking up to a beautiful view was just a great cherry on top. It was a great way to get away and be in nature for a few days! Thanks Kiki!

  • My wife and I spent 3 nights at the cottage in August. We enjoyed every minute of it: the lake, the closeness to the small town and Algonquin park. Lorne and his wife were great hosts. The cottage was very clean and had everything that we need. We loved the complimentary pedal boat. We certainly plan to be back.

    Pavel2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage on a beautiful lake.

    Ann2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 3 nights for July 1st long weekend. The cottage was sparkling clean and had everything we needed. The lake was very nice with docks and lots of Muskoka chairs. We could use canoe and the paddle boats (complimentary). Although all 5 cottages were full, we never felt crowded. Lorne is a great host and always available for any questions or advise on the local places of interest. Fire wood was thoughtfully assembled in the wheel barrow with lots of paper and kindling - plenty for $ 10.00. We would come there again.

    Anna2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lorne and Vanessa were great hosts. They were very helpful and accommodating. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The lake was beautiful and there were 2 nice docks with chairs to relax in. The property was nice :)

  • My family and I had a lovely week at the cottage. It was a wonderful place to unwind, enjoy meals in front of the picture window overlooking the lake, explore the lakes in the canoe, and watch movies in the evening. The kitchen was well stocked for our culinary needs, and I would say we tend to be more "high maintenance" in this department, as we like to cook. The water was a nice addition which we appreciated. The cottage is well looked after and so clean. Kathy was also quick to respond to any questions we had. I highly recommend this place.

    Nadia2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place is magical, off the beaten path, into the wilderness. The winding roads lined with forest, the gorgeous sunsets on the dock. Finding this place for my family and I was truly one of life’s unexpected and beautiful gifts. Thank you Kathi!!

    Sandra2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Kathi’s place for five days. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The cabin was very clean, the kitchen came with all the necessary amenities and then some. The space itself was larger than we expected, which is always a bonus. The walk down to the water through their garden was lovely. Straggle lake is calm and the dock was where we planted ourselves everyday until it was time to bbq again:) definitely a lot more traffic on the lake during the weekend compared to the complete tranquility of mid-week. All in all a wonderful time at a wonderful place. Can’t wait to return.

    Jessica2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • I dont know where to start when writing a review for Kathi's place. The 5 nights we spent were truly the most fantastic of my trip to Canada, and perhaps ever on Airbnb. The trip up from toronto took around 3hrs and the drive is beautiful, once you get out of the city. There is a beaver den on one of the roads leading from Kathi's to Wilberforce (the nearest small town with a liquor store and large food store) so definitely look out for that! I had never travelled to Canada before, it had always been a dream of mine and the richness of the wildlife at Kathis cabin was everything i'd hoped for and more. We saw wild beavers, turtles, fireflies, deer and all kinds of birds. The cabin is about an hour from Algonquins East Gate entrance, which was originally was a primary reason for booking the place, we only went there once and spent the other 5 days on the canoe, playing music and enjoying the privacy of the cabin. The water is beautiful and refreshing and i honestly could not recommend this place more highly. I use Airbnb for everything and this is hands down our best experience to date. Kathi was unbelievably accommodating and responded very quickly to anything and everything. As I sit in another airbnb following Kathi's, i genuinely wish i had booked 2 more nights there instead of moving on. Thank you, i hope one day i can visit ontario again to see this fabulous place once more!!!!!

    Annie2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • A great cottage to stay at and Kathi is an amazing host! Me and my girlfriend had a great time and would highly reccomened this cottage to anyone looking for a comfortable and affordable stay.

    Daniel2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Kathi's place is beautiful, the view is amazing! It's quiet and cozy. There was plenty of room for five adults. We spent a lot of time in the water, swimming access was ideal. All in all if you're looking for a cozy cabin with great views and great swimming this is your place. Kathi was also very helpful with questions and very quick to answer :) Best vacation ever!

    Melanie2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very comfortable, well-equipped, nicely decorated secluded cottage. The lake is pristine and is restricted to small engine motors so it is simply tranquil and oh so clean! Kathi allowed us complete privacy but responded immediately to any questions we had. I would consider this cottage and it’s location as one of the nicest I’ve ever stayed in! 👍👍

    Paula2018-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • My husband Bobby and I took our babymoon vacation here and we are so happy we did. The property is beautiful and peaceful. We loved the decor and beautiful views from the cottage dining table! We enjoyed lounging on the dock and having a fire every night by the water. We are already planning our return visit!
