About Lauren Helmkay
We love Lake Simcoe and being in the lake, and we love learning more about our travelling friends. Our home is known to be open as well to our guests, but we also respect the privacy of those who are looking to just 'get away' :)
Lauren Helmkay purchased this House in 2012
Why Lauren Helmkay chose Georgina
This home is a real 'retreat'; you'll find space to make your own, and common areas to enjoy company. The lake is the draw of this house, whether for summer swimming, or winter ice fishing. The house has a large back yard as well where you might find a badmitton net set up, or a fire burning in the fire pit.
What makes this House unique
An hour north of Toronto, this is cottage country without the commute in the long traffic north. The house itself offers spaciousness, cathedral ceilings, and an elegance that makes you feel you've landed somewhere really special.

Awesome house, awesome landlord
The house was great, beautiful view, very clean. Looked better than the pictures showed!
Thanks so much Gabriel! We enjoyed having you all! We love that the cottage exceeded your expectations and were happy we could provide some ice for you to fish lol! Come again!
Perfect cottage for a family vacation!
This cottage was absolutely perfect for my family vacation. I rented this for 4 couples plus kids so it was perfect that there were 4 spacious bedrooms that each had their own bathroom. Everything was so clean, beautiful and plentiful. The kitchen is fully stocked with spices, and everything you need for cooking/barbecuing/eating. The private beach across the road is perfect with paddle boards, a sandy area for kids to play, a dock to sit on, and there were so many great outdoor spaces to enjoy a morning coffee it was hard to pick which one between the front porch, patio, backyard and dock! There is a fire pit in the backyard for s’mores, and tons of lawn games to enjoy. The location was also a perfect location for going for runs along the water. Lauren was a great host and super helpful with everything! Thank you so much for a great weekend Lauren!! We appreciate everything and would love to rent this cottage again next year!!
Wonderful stay at Georgina
This house is spacious, very well-equipped and decorated. The private beach is just across the street -- very convenient specially for small children. There are canoe, kayaks, paddle boards for us to enjoy.
If you want a fun and relaxing time with incredible hosts, this is the place!
Lauren and Grant are warm and welcoming hosts. The place has everything you could possibly want to have the best vacation. Our family had a fantastic time paddle boarding, biking, swimming and just enjoying the breathtaking sunsets. Highly recommend this property!!
A Great Way to End a Chapter
I took nine of my closest friends to visit Lauren's property. I could not have been more happy with the the cottage, location and hospitality that I experienced. It was a great way to celebrate our graduation!
The house and owner team could not have been nicer and more accommodating. Everything you could possibly think of or need to have an enjoyable, relaxing vacation is at this house.
Cottage country, 1 hour from Toronto.
Lake Simcoe, a short drive north of Toronto, offers some of the best fishing in Ontario. The lake is fished year round (pike, perch, whitefish, lake trout) and is famous for it's winterlake trout and whitefish bonanza.
