ReviewsWrite a review
I had business in the Chatham area for a few days so I rented the lake house so that my whole family could come along. From beginning to end, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great access to the lake and plenty of things to do inside in case of bad weather. We were especially impressed with the fact that all appliances and such items were all in perfect condition. We will definitely make this place an annual destination spot! Its very hard to find "family friendly" rental spots but this place was perfect!

Owner response: Thanks for the great review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay.
I rented this cottage with a few old friends as a way to get together in the summer. Everyone was blown away by the property and amenities. The owners had looked after everything, including leaving bath and beach towels out on every bed, providing information about local attractions and leaving muskoka chairs at the beach front fire pit. Everything listed in the ad is accurate, and then some! The property was very well maintained. The size of the cottage (a house really) was also surprising. While most cottages have thin walls and are cramped, the rooms in this cottage are spread out, including two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs. This let the young ones, or those of us too tired from the day out, to go to bed while the rest of us could keep visiting. We also really loved the open concept kitchen/dining/living room opening out to the deck, which made for great social time around meals. By far the best part of the vacation was the privacy. The cottage has only one neighbour and has 50 feet of private beach. Other than a few people walking down the beach with their dogs, we were able to enjoy completely uninterrupted use of the beach. This is was such an improvement on other cottages we have rented where we were surrounded by other vacationers, particularly considering the great price. I have already recommended this cottage to all my friends and family. If the owners will have us, we will be back year after year. Truly a hidden gem!

About the owner: We are a young family who enjoy our time away together at the lake house. As the operators of a summer camp and retreat facility, we understand the importance of having opportunities to get outside and spend time with friends and family.
Why the Owner Chose Chatham-Kent:
Growing up near the lake was a big memory for both of us. Having a place to go, relax and just be with family is important - this house is our home away from home.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We fell in love with the view of Lake Erie, the private beach, the neighbourhood and the closeness to Rondeau Provincial Park. Being far enough away from the business of urban life, but close enough to all needed amenities sold it for us.
