Former long time cottage owner
The cottage was absolutely fantastic. On a great lake perfect for kids. Boats & watercraft do not come near the dock so it is very safe. Long dock & diving platform really great. Close to Peterborough where we live .A perfect place for our large family with lots of grandkids.We have rented 2 years in a row & loved it both times. We came to think of it as our place. Lots of room on all three levels of the cottage. Room to spread around & not feel crowded even with a larger group. As cottagers of 35 years we are pretty experienced . I cannot think of even one negative thing to say about this wonderful cottage on White Lake.

Rave reviews from my family!
October 2012: 3 generations of the women in my family came together for a weekend in October to celebrate several “turning 50" this year at our first ever family girls’ weekend away. Our weekend at the Lakehouse was fantastic. Communication with Vij and Christy was top knotch, any questions I had while booking and prior to/during our stay were answered swiftly. Friday was chilly, we stayed in, turned on the fire, played games and gossiped - but it warmed up for the balance of the weekend and we were out walking the roads and enjoyed a bonfire at the firepit while snacking on appetizers - the kitchen is fully stocked for all cooking purposes and we had the best beef tenderloin off of the bbq Saturday night. You’ve provided every comfort, and the location is perfect - being on the lake was incredible. I woke up early Saturday morning and watched the mist on the water break as the sun rose with my coffee in hand. Thank you both for opening your home to share with us. Everything you've done in decorating makes the cottage feel well loved and like home. All the old biddies and our younger 3rd generation had a hoot (and so did I, even though I was forced to play charades Saturday night). Thank god for wine. Rave reviews from my family!

My husband and I were looking to rent a cottage with 3 other couples and we fell upon this listing. We all looked at the pictures, read the description and said yes to this cottage. When we arrived Thurs afternoon, we were all shocked...the pictures didn't do it justice!! This wasn't a typical cottage...this was a home! It was beautifully decorated and everything was open concept, which we all loved!! Vij & Christy were amazing with responding back to emails/calls/texts whenever we had a problem (not that we did, just had to let them know I accidentally broke a wine glass). They also let myself and my sister to bring our small dogs! We all were in awe of how clean and spacious this cottage was and how COMFY the couches and beds were (a couple of our friends even said they had some of the best night sleeps at the cottage in a long time!). We'll definitely be coming back in Sept!! Thank you Vij & Christy!

Stunning Vacation Home!
Stunning Vacation Home!
My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend in September at this cottage with our 2 year old and it was a perfect fall getaway! It was truly more beautiful than the pictures. The gorgeous decor is absolutely breathtaking! Each room is designed with such taste and it is such an elegant cottage yet is so comfortable and cozy!. The soaring celings, stunning decor and the beautiful fireplace made it difficult to leave the cottage! The views of the lake from every room were amazing and the outdoor space was fabulous.Thank you to Christy and Vij for being such an absolute pleasure to deal with. We will absolutely be back for a future stay!

We loved it

This was a fabulous cottage for a family reunion! It was even more beautiful than seen in the pictures. Everyone loved the gorgeous decor, the cleanliness and the beautiful lake. We enjoyed swimming, fishing, canoeing, watching movies, gourmet meals, long walks, trips to Lakefield and Peterborough, stargazing at night, roasting marshmallows......Thank you to Christy and Vij for being wonderful hosts and for sharing their small corner of paradise.

Magnificent Vacation Home!!
Magnificent Vacation Home!!
What a beautiful " vacation home"!! We wondered if this house was as great as the pictures portrayed on the web and what a delight when we pulled in July 3rd. We picked the hottest week and the air conditioned home proved to be a "God-send". We were 10 adults, three children and everyone was happy! Our biggest concern was the swimming availability for our grandchildren. With "water shoes" it was great- clear, warm, clean water. Our four year old gran-daughter " Sarah" stood with a fishing net and caught fish as they swam around her. The "fisherman" in the group caught large mouth bass off the dock and we enjoyed fish chowderduring the week! We had our own motor boat and the kids and adults enjoyed tubing all week. The lake was so seren and quiet all week long it was like we had our own private lake. The neighbors next door were an immense help from assisting us with the boat " in and out " of the lake to all kinds of information about depth, where to go, history of the lake, etc. The house itself was warm and cozy, some of the family enjoyed the downstairs family room to watch movies- some the great room- enough sofas for all of us and we all enjoyed the deck and the fire pit with all the adirondack chairs. Thank you Christy and Vij for making our vacation with our entire family a most memorable week. We hope to return!!

Perfect cottage to share with another family.
Perfect cottage to share with another family.
Our whole family (2 adult children and their spouses, 4 grandchildren ages 6, 5, 4, and 1) and 2 grandparents spent a glorious weekend at this beautiful cottage in July 2010.. The pictures really do not do it justice. It is a very well designed home which has been furnished and decorated with exceptional style and taste. The outside area is very nicely landscaped and the comfortable patio with Adirondack chairs and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows was a big hit with all generations. The waterfront is very kid friendly and kept all the older children busy collecting shells, etc. Water shoes are recommended. The water was comfortably warm and very clear with no weeds. The cottage comes with a canoe and a kayak. Our 6 year old grandson became quite proficient at paddling the stable, 10 ft Kayak in the immediate area. Truly a wonderful, family cottage with helpful and pleasant owners. This was an excellent experience. Thank you Christy and Vij.

My wife and I spent a week at this magnificent cottage for our honeymoon last summer and it was absolutely perfect! The pictures and description, although beautiful, do not do it justice. It's an absolute must! From the second you drive up to this welcoming paradise you will be speachless... and that's only the beginning. Once inside you will be blown away by the comfortable atmosphere, and cozy décor. It truely is IMPRESSIVE to say the least. We were able to get out on the water on a small boat and relax on the quite lake, utilize the massive kitchen, and just enjoy ourselves. Also, if you feel like you can pull yourself away from the cottage for a couple of hours, feel free to take a short drive into town and enjoy the small town enchantment, The cottage owners were completey helpful and offer a book of nearby attractions and events. They were also extremely pleasent to work with when making reservations.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: We are a family of 3. We have been renting for 8 years and have met many wonderful families along the way. My husband and I have a 2 year old son. We currently reside in Toronto and both work in IT. One day we plan to retire in our beloved lakefront home.
Why the Owner Chose White Dummer Lake:
We originally bought in this location because we loved the lake & with the nearby amenities we have the best of both worlds. We prefer a quieter fishing lake than a busy boating lake. There are no houseboats on our lake, few skidoos & great fishing. Our lake is however fed by Stoney Lake and so there is a boat launch across the street onto Stoney Lake for those days we want to boat on the Trent Severn lake system. The drive is quick. The road is plowed seasonally & so we enjoy our lakehouse year round and love the proximity to so many different activities.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We think one of the most unique benefits of this property is the design. Given we had owned the cottage for 6 years before the fire, when it came to building, we knew exactly how we wanted to use the new space. The house is big and spacious so you never feel crowded. The areas are wonderful for gathering with family & friends. The BBQ is right off the dining room & kitchen - the deck is huge with amazing views. The lakefront is fantastic for kids and fishing. We can catch large & small mouth bass off the dock! We absolutely love our home and believe you will too.
