"Thank you Jason for all your help planning a surprise 35th Anniversary Trip for my husband. We stayed for one week at Icicle Valley, and we could not have asked for a better vacation.
The cottage is even better than the pictures. The views from the cottage are breath taking. The kitchen is amazing and very well equipped. Our family spent a lot of time hanging out here, and taking turns enjoying making dinner while visiting with each other.
We were a group of seven ranging in age from 58 to 1, and the cottage had something for everyone. The waters edge was sandy and easy to walk into with our granddaughter. Our grandson and sons enjoyed fishing off the dock, and the canoe got well used. The hammock was a favourite spot to read and relax and the pool table was a great addition on the raining and cooler nights that we had. There is a very nice fire pit area and firewood was supplied (a great bonus) and we had a fire most nights. The hot tub was also used, and the steam sauna quickly became a favourite, The wireless connection was vey good.
Also we truly appreciated that we were able to bring our dog with us on vacation.
We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to family and friends looking to plan their vacations.
Our grandson's only complaint was "Do we have to go home? Can't we stay!" and we take this as a sign of an awesome vacation."

"My husband, two young daughters and I had a wonderful week at this lovely Muskoka cottage this summer. We visited with our parents (children's grandparents) and siblings (kids' aunts and uncle) throughout the week, and everyone had a great time. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows in the fire pit at night; taking the canoe, kayak and paddle board out on the water; swimming off the dock and swimming platform; building sandcastles on the small beach; simply enjoying the beautiful view; and hanging out in the lovely cottage. All in all, a great time was had by all!"

"We (wife and I, kids aged 7 and 5 and my parents) spent a week on Dempster Island. The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. The views are spectacular, especially sunrises, sunsets and looking at the stars at night from the private dock.
Our kids loved playing on the beach and going for canoe and motorboat rides.
Although the cottage is on an island, Bala is very close and it's easy to get to and from shore with the provided motorboat."

"Hi D I have to thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful cottage you were a fabulous host and I believe we hit a home run with your place. The cottage had ample room for us guys and the gourmet kitchen was outstanding. The kitchen was so well equipped which made cooking a breeze and a pleasure cooking for a large group. With the large deck the views of the lake from the cottage were breath taking and with the gazebo on the water, with the beautiful beach was more than one could imagine. The ample parking space made parking a breeze. I would highly recommend this rental to all. You truly do have a diamond in the ruff and we will see you next year.
Cheers and thank you
