  • Doesn't describe how amazing the property is, it's fantastic

    "Wonderfully well thought out with lots of extras for games on the lawn and playing at the beach. Kids and adults loved the old farmhouse and the incredible property. If we are ever back, we will definitely rebook in this very special place. Thanks Elizabeth you made it very easy for us!"

  • A perfect cottage for a family gathering

    "Not sure what we can add to what people have already said who have fully described the property... Rowanlea is a classic traditional Canadian cottage – the kind they don’t build any more. The kitchen is exceptional, replete with cooking equipment and large pantry type cupboards containing plenty of crockery, glasses and commonly needed staples such as spices. It has a gigantic working counter open to the dining room with its huge table and ten chairs. When you add the BBQ outside it allowed easy cooking even for a crowd. Depending on the weather we were able to switch between eating in the dining room and on the adjacent rear deck and even with a large group have everyone seated together at a single table. This was very special. Laundry and bathroom facilities are very good. Loads of sleeping spaces are dotted between the two levels in both the main cottage and the boat house. Loved the books, artworks, musical instruments, comfortable furniture, bits and pieces from the family's life that we were allowed to share. Lights, electricity coped admirably with our demands. Hot water nearly did. We did have more people than usual staying at the cabin so the hot water situation nudged past the critical point. Loved the added space of the boathouse and the privacy of the dock. So many special spaces on the grounds for a little privacy, a fire at night, all kinds of games on the lawn, accessible parking, treed site, boats, lake views (those sunsets!). The amount of room available allowing all to have a private space should be noted. The cottage is easy to reach by routes both direct and scenic from the city and stores for all needs are found within an easy drive. There is a large garbage holder at the road that safely houses filled garbage, recycling and compost containers until collection day. The cottage is on well water but a water cooler/dispenser is provided. In short, Rowanlea was just about perfect for our family gathering and will be remembered fondly for years."

  • Great Little Cottage Well Equipped and Modern Amenities

    "Our family stayed from July 27th to August 3rd 2014. Contrary to a previous reviewer we knew that the cottage was in a somewhat residential area, paved road, etc. That was perfect for us and it is in a great spot, very close to many amenities. Great view of the lake, excellent interior with modern bathrooms, all you could want in the kitchen. VERY clean upon arrival. Bonus was the "bunky" which our guests could use, also very clean with full bath and a fridge as well, slept four easily. We enjoyed our stay very much and would return. Restaurant Note: DO go to Hot Stacks for breakfast or brunch it is really outstanding! About a 20 minute drive. Only complaint: The BBQ is very old and needs to be replaced - it was also very dirty/soiled from previous use, took us half an hour to clean it, we certainly left it in better shape than we found it!, outdoor kitchen is not useable, dirty and in disrepair."

  • Another AMAZING holiday spent at this gem!

    "This is our third time staying at this cottage, and it is always a great experience. The place is beautiful, spacious, fully equipped with everything you could imagine, and Lauren is fantastic to deal with. Very friendly and helpful. Every time we've gone, she's added or changed something, always making it even better than before. We enjoyed it, my grown children enjoyed it, and my granddaughters really enjoyed it! I'm happy to report that no babies were born while there....but my daughter-in-law did give birth only 6 days after leaving. My daughter is due this week..... they were both very comfortable at this cottage, even in the late stages of pregnancy....that says a lot!! Lauren, you're wonderful, the place is fantastic, the neighbours are nice, and we will be back :) As a matter of fact, I'll be back in just a few weeks for our annual Ladies Weekend Getaway in September!! I absolutely love the fact that it's only an hour away to your paradise! See you again soon!"
