A stunning week

  • 5 of 5

Our families had a wonderful week at this cottage! The photographs do not do this property nor the beach justice; they are stunning. The clean, bright cottage provided every comfort, the amenities were great, the views were spectacular, and the kitchen was stocked with every tool a cook would ever need. The shallow, sandy beach is a dream for children (and parents who need a break!). The lake was serene and warm. The owner was quick to respond to our requests; even when a tree fell and blocked the only road out, someone with a chainsaw was sent asap! Thanks for a relaxing vacation!

Perfect cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage met and exceeded all our expectations. Clean, comfortable, and beautifully renovated and furnished. The propane stove was lovely on the colder mornings. Beach is perfect, and in early September there was hardly anyone else on the beach.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family to get together and enjoy the sand, surf and sun. The beach is great and just steps away from the deck and cottage. We had our 4 year old grandson with us and we didn't have to worry about him since he was so close and visible. There was lots for him to explore and keep him occupied. The water is crystal clear and perfect for swimming. The kayaks and canoe were an added bonus as the lake is perfect for paddling and exploring. The cottage is nicely decorated, spacious and has all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. The beds were great and we all slept like babies. A great vacation!

Another Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous cottage for our third year this year, and we're just as impressed as the first time.

The cottage is exactly as described, open and airy with all the amenities you need for a great stay.

Our kids are 5 and 3, and the beach is perfect for the littles as it is sandy and shallow.

The owners are very responsive, easy to get ahold of and answer to every need.

A Great Cottage

Beautiful cottage on a quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a gorgeous week up at the lake and all of the kids absolutely loved it and want to go back! The sandy beach was a hit and the shallow water was a great place to play. The property was clean and tidy and quite comfortable for all of us. We will definitely be going back :) Thank you for a week of beautiful memories!

Another 20 minutes away is Bancroft for everything from fine and casual dining, major grocery stores, Canadian Tire, Marinas, DQ(!) and anything else you could want on your vacation. Bancroft has all the big town amenities yet the charm of a cottage town. Also in reasonable proximity are many quaint small towns, Algonquin Park, White Water Rafting and a variety of historical sites. There is a gas station 5 minutes from the cottage. Head 20 minutes east and you're in the beautiful Madawaska Valley and the quaint and lively (in the summer :-) ) town of Barry's Bay. Many interesting shops and historical sites in this early Polish Settlement.
