About Luis Garcia

Luis and I are long-time cottagers in the area. We live in Toronto during the week where Laura is a librarian and Luis a film-maker. On weekends we head north to our cottage whenever possible and love the life style that it offers.

Luis Garcia purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Luis Garcia chose Ontario

Our cottage is large with amazing light and living space, while being homey and comfortable. Laura loves to cook and was able to design her dream kitchen here. During cold weather, we have two fire options, one on each floor (wood stove and fireplace). In summer, we love the lake water, which is spring fed and so very clean for swimming; the quiet and privacy of only having 8 other residences on the lake; and the proximity to Huntsville for shopping, services, and entertainment, whenever we can pull ourselves away from the cottage.

Fantastic weekend for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of four couples and two young children spend 4 nights over the May long weekend and we all had a fantastic time!

The accommodations were fantastic, the beds were great, the amenities were better than at home and the screened in porch was ideal. The kids had a playroom with toys which was a fantastic surprise.

We have been renting cottages for the past 10 years with our group of friends and this is the first one we would like to return to.

Thank you Luis for the hospitality.

Family Snowmobile getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband kids/Brother and his family were lucky enough to stay at this wonderful cottage for 4 days of family fun. The snowmobile trail is right beside the cottage and is truly amazing for hours of fun. The cottage is very spacious for 2 families and the large windows make for spectacular views. We will be back!!

Thank you Luis and Laura

Beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a month from mid April to Mid May 2016 while we were looking for a home to buy in the area. The cottage was perfect for us. Luis and Laura kept us well informed about things we needed to know including internet access and rural garbage rules. The cottage is well equipped with great quality linens and kitchen utensils. Every gadget I needed for cooking was here, in excellent condition. The lake and surrounding area are beautiful to enjoy and the next door trails for walking provided lovely views. There is a small grocery store 10 minutes from the cottage and we enjoyed exploring Huntsville, about twenty minutes away. My favourite moments were spent enjoying the early day sun at the front window of the cottage when the sun hit the lake and the late evening moments in the Muskoka room listening to the spring peepers. Thank you Luis and Laura for leaving your home spotless for us. We hope to return again one day and will recommend this cottage to our friends and family.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, toddler son, chocolate lab Jake and I opted for a winter vacation this year. We couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodations! This cottage has all of the comforts of home and more!

The cottage was spotless! It is very spacious, warm and inviting. Between the 2 floors, it could comfortably hold 2 families. We stayed in the lower level, cozy tv room was a bonus! My son was a huge fan of the jetted tub! We spent a lot of time outside and enjoyed fetching fresh spring water daily, best I've ever tasted!

Luis was very easy to communicate with and quick to respond to any & all questions I had.

I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a great place to stay!

Thanks again Luis & family for letting us stay at your cottage, it truly felt like home!

A lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this cottage very much. It was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, and has everything we needed in the house. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast area which faces a beautiful and quite lake. We enjoyed the canoeing and kayaking duirng the day. It was not far from Huntsville and Algonguin so it is very convenient for grocery shopping, sightseeing and hiking. We definitely will come back in the near future. Thanks Luis for your hospitality to make us feel like home!

Beautiful home on a gorgeous, quiet lake!

  • 5 of 5

My whole family stayed at this gorgeous home for a week, and we were beyond happy with the entire experience! From start to finish Luis was very quick to respond to any inquiries or concerns we had within hours, he was very accommodating and kind. The house itself looked better in real life than in the pictures! We took full advantage of the Screened in Muskoka room, where we could escape the Mosquitos at their witching hour, without having to leave the beautiful lake view and warm summer nights. The cottage was equipped with everything we need and the thoughtful details did not go unnoticed. We took full advantage of the two kayaks , paddle boat and canoe, and were very happy to have the free use of the boats during our stay. We also caught many small mouth bass with little effort, you can actually see the fish jumping right out of the water, often. I highly recommend this home/cottage and would rent again in a heartbeat.
