"I know that sometimes pictures can be deceiving so I had a feeling that this place couldn't be as good as it looked...and I was right. IT WAS WAY BETTER! The charm and ambience of the cottage was just beyond comparison. It was like being in an English countryside cottage with bridges and multiple seating areas, water features and lovely gardens. And at night, all the lights came on and it was like being in a fairyland!
And Petra (owner) also rescues animals. I got to spend time feeding and grooming her 4 donkeys, 1 mule, 2 goats, 2 piggies and 2 dogs. What fun for me.
And speaking of Petra...we do a LOT of weekend traveling thru VRBO and have yet to find anyone that makes you feel so much at home and part of the family. She lays out every detail of anyplace you may want to see on your visit; recommends places to eat and go see; provides directions and tips and tricks. We were lacking for nothing.
The inside of the cottage was very modern and up to date with a lovely bathroom and cedar steam room. No commercial television but a wall of DVD's to choose from. And a spacious covered porch allows to you to still remain outside even in the rain, so the TV was not missed by us.
We typically don't go back to the same place twice as there's so many new places to experience. This will be the exception. We plan to return again...and again. Thanks Petra!"

"I stayed for 9 days and was ideal, close to Toronto city center. Many restaurants with walking distance on St. Clair ave.
The suite is spotless, nice bathroom and a kitchen for cooking and would recommend for any couple or single person
looking for decent cost effective accommodation close to the city. Bill the owner was great with good information regarding
the general area and if necessary can be reached quickly, he lives in the upper portion of the house. Everything was clean,
and new like, including linens, etc. hard to go wrong. Would definitely stay again."

"So happy to get the seal of approval from all of my family for choosing this luxury chalet in a rustic peaceful setting. A large family of young adults has varying needs. Your cottage has the space, the gourmet kitchen and the layout to accommodate. Loved having a direct gas line BBQ & stocked kitchen to prepare meals. Whether it was coffee on the deck or dinner in the screened in porch or another meal around the main table, each area allowed us to create a new mood for our crew. Our goal was to attend a beach wedding in Thornbury and to reconnect as a family. Your chalet gave us a wonderful opportunity to build lasting memories. Two thumbs up!"

"We rented Loon Lodge for the first time ever when my family was visiting from out of the country. We were a group of 7 altogether - 4 adults and 3 kids. The setting was beautiful. Miller Lake is big enough to get a good canoe trip in, but small enough that the water is warm and relatively calm.
The house was just what we were hoping for. Beautiful big living room windows overlooking the lake and a gorgeous wrap around terrace with a table for dining outside. I liked that the house had 2 levels so the early risers could be separated from those who wanted to sleep in.
The kitchen was stocked with all the dishes and cookware we needed and it was fantastic to have a canoe and raft and rowboat to use; saved us from having to rent.
The beds and furniture were a little soft/worn for our liking, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. I would also love the option to rent our linens and pay for housekeeping instead of having to haul all that ourselves to the cabin.
But all in all, a great value for our money and the owners were very responsive and reasonable to deal with. I would recommend this for a family getaway to anyone looking for a base on the Bruce Peninsula, close to Tobermory and the beaches of Lake Huron."
