Why Jessica & Frank chose Kearney

Muskoka is an area that we have always been drawn to and have loved to visit. We still at times can not believe that such a beautiful place is ours and we are so excited to raise our family there and share our incredible cottage with our wonderful renters.

What makes this cottage unique

The views from every room in the home are absolutely breath taking.

Great location and great time

  • 4 of 5

Had a family reunion of sorts at Jessica and Frank's place. It is a very nice property with all the amenities you could ask for. The large kitchen even has a dish washer. The main floor also has a large dining area and living/family room that overlooks the lake. There is a utility room as you enter the house which is large enough to store the patio chairs and leave room for boxes. The deck is spacious and has a great view of the lake.

There are four bedrooms on the upper levels which we found to be more than suitable for our needs. The smallest room has a balcony that overlooks the lake.

Sixty-one stairs down to the lake makes for a good workout but once down there is a deck and a dock on which you can sit and enjoy the views and solitude. The water begins as a shallow area but by the end of the dock it is deep enough to float a boat.

Our grandchildren are already asking when they can come back.

Truly paradise at Sand Lake

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic! It was clean, spacious and well equipped, there was nothing that we wished we had brought with us. Having arrived in the dark the view that met us when we opened our curtains the next morning was wonderful.

The use of the kayaks really added something too, our three teenagers loved swimming in the lake and kayaying, ( it even got them away from the internet for hours at a time!) we all made it to the island in the middle of the lake too.

Jessica was really helpful and amenable. We had the holiday of a lifetime and are desperate to return. Thank-you

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

It was our first visit to the Kearney area and our only disappointment was the lack of fish in Sand Lake.

The cottage was lovely, very spacious for our 4 adult, 1 child group. The kitchen was well equipped and the furniture was comfy. The deck and views were outstanding. We appreciated the privacy.

The kayaks were a hit with our son and daughter-in-law.

The steps to the lake were daunting at first, but after a week we came away with well toned calves and thighs!

Jessica (the owner) was very accommodating and helpful.

We will recommend this cottage to all our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We would love to have you return. I'm sorry about the lack of fish. We have had guests successfully catch some in the past, even right off of the dock. As I pride myself on gaining 5* reviews it's a shame that the reason this one is a 4* is beyond my control. Thank you for recommending our home to your circle of friends and family!

Absolutely Breathtaking!!

  • 5 of 5

Another stay in paradise again this year. The house is lovely and huge, the swimming is divine (warm water, sandy bottom, nice to wade in, drops off past the edge of the dock) and we even caught a fish right off of the dock! The view from the deck is incredible. We will be back again next year :) Also love the 3 kayaks. We toured the lake, so much fun!
