Relaxed in Muskoka - Incredible

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to get away and relax. The cottage and setting was spectacular. Newly renovated -- all the amenities. Evenings on the dock and patio to watch the sun go down are without compare. We rented a boat for a few days and toured these beautiful lakes. The cottage's location was perfect for cruising to Port Carling and Bala - for shopping and food. John was a gracious host, meeting us and making sure we had everything we needed. We will be back.

Bueatiful View As Advertised

  • 4 of 5

For my wife and I it was a opportunity to get away and enjoy a quiet Lake Holiday. Lake Muskoka and this location provides both a quiet, peaceful cottage experience with good access to whatever you need by water or by road. Easy access to local sightseeing and a beautiful setting to just hang out and enjoy the view. Having looked at a few properties, this location offers a stunning vista during the day and amazing sunsets. There were a few kitchen items missing on our arrival, however a quick e-mail provided quick delivery of the items needed. Definitely looking to organize another visit, hopefully during a July/ August timeframe.

Muskoka charm without the price

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two children were able to get away for a much needed escape! After doing my homework I found this place to be exactly what we were looking for and well within our price range. Bruce even offered us a cheaper rate because it was still early in the season. The weather was perfect but the water was still a bit cool for my wife and I. The kids on the other hand had no problem jumping in the lake. I can't offer much on dining out since we did all of our cooking at the cabin. We did make it out one night for ice cream and pie.

Another Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As Usual our 2016 Spring trip was to our favorite place. John and Bruce's cottage on Lake Muskoka and this time was the same result....Excellence. My wife and I love the cottage and the great location and the early spring fishing was fantastic. Catching fish right off the dock or working all the various bays and shoals. John's knowledge and help provided us with a great deal on a small fishing boat and many thanks to him for getting us in touch with some of the local fisherman and their wealth of info. The huge deck provides a beautiful vista of sunsets and the calming effect of waves lapping on the shore. Ending your day with a glass of wine looking at the views as the sunsets is a special event for anyone and everyone to appreciate.

There's a nice Weber BBQ on the deck and a more than adequate kitchen to cook up your favorite meals. So if you like to BBQ, or impress the wife with your culinary skills bring you favorite foods and take in calming effect of this hidden paradise. Based on our experiences, the cost to rent this wonderful cottage is very affordable compared to similar sized cottages on the lake and you'll be hard pressed to find a better view or location. John and Bruce are very easy to deal with and their response time to emails is fantastic . We will be coming back again this year if time allows...:)

Another great stay, weather perfect !

  • 5 of 5

As usual Bruce and John are great people to deal with, very accommodating. My schedule changed so I wanted to take an early retreat before the summer really started to kick in. The weather for the week was awesome, warm almost everyday. They offered me a lower rate since it was off season (bonus), , they were away in China at the time but we managed all the details over the phone. I did my usual biking and hiking through the trails at Hardy Lake and had a great time, met some new friends on the trail. Thank you Bruce, for fitting me in at the last minute.

Loving the place

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying at this location for the past six years and always the last two weeks of September (my birthday getaway) For me the time of year is perfect to enjoy great weather, few if any bugs, water is still warm, Hardy Lake is just down the road with great hiking trails, town of Bala is just a couple of miles north and I usually bike it there, sometimes I'll bike a little further into the Wahta Indian Reserve to get some fresh pickerel and moose meat and a couple of cigars to go with my brandy. For me, relaxing on the deck with my brandy and cigar overlooking the lake while I have the pickerel on the Q just doesn't get any better than that. The cottage has everything you need, privacy, great view of the lake, kitchen, bedrooms, laundry, BBQ, nice size deck, swim off the dock, hiking trails, town close by, , ,
