About Heather

We are a family of 4 that have enjoyed the cottage life in all its glorious seasons. Our kids are always asking about when the next time we can go. They love that the neighbours are extremely friendly and they can go 'frogging' at the local pond and right at the waterfront as well. In 2013 we also found that a small otter lives under our dock. If you're quiet, you can see him scamper around at dusk along the shoreline.

Why Heather chose Ontario

From the moment you step into the cottage, you will find it extremely comfortable, just like being at home only with a spectacular view of 'Lake TV'. The layout has such a good flow you'll easily find relaxing from your everyday stresses. We love to be able to watch the sunset from inside and out from the deck, you never miss is because there are so many windows.

What makes this cottage unique

Wii Mini on site for guest use with 2 remotes (bring your Wii games from home).

House trained, well behaved dogs allowed.

Rentals: Sunday to Sunday unless otherwise booked in the calendar.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for a lovely week at your cottage. We had a blast. Our 2 year old had lots of fun in the sandbox and on your swing set. We enjoyed a paddle boat every day. Thank again,

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was very pleased with the cottage. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. I appreciated that all the drawers were labeled, making it easy to prepare meals. The beautiful lake view was definitely the highlight of the property! The location of the property was very convenient for short trips to neighbouring communities like Bobcaygeon and Lyndsey, and for quick trips to the local grocery store. We would definitely come back again, thanks Heather!

Comfortable property with lots of space for kids

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The cottage had everything we needed, and was close enough to Fenelon Falls to make groceries, etc, a breeze. Four adults (two elderly with mobility issues) and an 18-m.o. child were accommodated very comfortably. The easy drive from Toronto was also appreciated - it meant we could spend more of our weekend relaxing!

Awesome place!!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to make memories!! It's right by the lake, fully stocked equipment in the kitchen, movies, board games, two entrances at the back of the house to the lake, fire pit, BBQ, paddle boat and loads more!!! The reason why we gave 4 stars was because they had already packed up the dock and we would have enjoyed it if it was extended. Would book again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I understand your want for the dock. It is difficult to find the right time to pull the dock in to make everyone happy. After Labour Day the water & weather can become very cold and the weather is more unpredictable from year to year. It's not comfortable to wade into cold water to get the dock out in October, so taking it out by Labour is necessary. Look forward to having you back!

Extremely well kept property and a very clean and spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 5 days of vacation very much! Heather's cottage is truly fantastic and very well equipped. There is a lot of space in an open concept kitchen/dining/living area to make any activity enjoyable - we were 5 grownups (6 for the last day) and a baby - no problem at all - so much room. Easy distance from Toronto is an extra bonus.
