  • Great beach/lake for families

    "We just returned from a week at this cottage on Lake Farlain. It was a low-key family vacation with our 2-year-old twins and their grandparents, though we did have a few additional family members stay a couple of nights at a time. For the most part, we all fit comfortably on the upper/main level of the cottage in the 3 spacious bedrooms, updated bathroom, living room and kitchen areas. However, the nights that we did have additional guests, we were required to use the fourth bedroom located on the lower level of the cottage. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with the beach front and lake. It was much better than I had even anticipated. The lake is relatively small, though large enough for power boating, waterskiing, and jet skis. Very calm and shallow, sandy water leading to deep enough water to swim at the end of the dock. Our toddlers absolutely loved playing in the sand and wading in and out of the water without us having to be hypervigilant. The property the cottage is on is fairly large and private as well with no immediate neighbours to one side and several cottages fairly well spaced out to the opposite side. The cottage came equipped with many staples that could be needed, like cleaning supplies, toys and games, lots of towels, and most everything you would need for cooking in the kitchen. The cleaner had done an immaculate job prior to our arrival as well. I had no complaints about the main level of the cottage at all! However, the main problem we experienced was with the basement/4th bedroom area. It appeared fine, but smelled and felt damp right off the bat. However, when we did have a few extra bodies visiting at night, we quickly learned that there is a major earwig/bug problem in the basement that came out at night. They were everywhere... coming out of the ceiling tiles and lights above the bed and throughout the basement! Our guests actually moved up to the living area floor their first night and set up their tent outside on the second night because that was preferable to the "fourth bedroom". We are all well experienced with spending time up north and cottaging, and recognize there are always bugs to a certain extent, but this was well above and beyond anything we have ever experienced! I really feel this cottage should be advertised as only a 3-bedroom and priced accordingly for that reason! Other than that, we had a fantastic trip! I would replace steps from the deck to yard as they are steep and dangerous though."

  • Great family holiday in Toronto at Arts on Seaton!

    "Our family of 6 had a great week-long stay at Arts on Seaton in Dec 2014 while attending the World Juniors. The house is beautiful, clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and got in touch during our stay to see if we needed anything. There was plenty of room for everyone with 4 beautiful bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms (plus main floor powder room). The location was great! We walked 10 minutes to the Eaton Centre to get the subway and it was a quick ride to the ACC. Also visited the Aquarium, CN Tower, Casa Loma, Nathan Philips Square, Queen St. West, etc. Enjoyed eating at Jules Bistro, F'Amelia and Cluny's Bistro as well as watching the games at Real Sports Bar. Lots of restaurants, shops within walking distance and if the weather had been nicer we would have spent more time walking around exploring the neighborhood. We didn't rent a car and didn't need one to get around - even visited family in Pickering using the GO train. I would highly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!"

  • Reunion of friends

    "My friends and I used to do a big reunion every year to catch up and reminisce on the good ol’ days. After a 4 year hiatus, we found the farmhouse and it couldn’t have been a better spot to get us all together. Coming from London and the GTA, the location was easy enough to get to for everyone. There was lots of space for everyone to sleep and lots of washrooms so no waits. The big harvest table in the dining room was perfect for group meals which were prepared in the great kitchen. The barn was a fun place to hangout and provides some nice separation from the house if anyone wants some quiet time from the group. The owner was excellent to deal with and was never short on suggestions on how best to enjoy the farm. We’d like to come back in the summer for a longer stay so that we could experience more of the farm."

  • Amazing

    "Home away from home. It was perfect. So comfy! Everything was working on a perfect condition. There was not even a single lamp that did not work. I will definitely come back and would recommend this."
