3 Bedroom, 1 bathroom bungalow. Sleeps 6 comfortably (4 adults, 2 kids)
Our cottage is a three bedroom bungalow with plenty of room for a family of 6 (1 queen bed in the master bedroom, 1 double bed in bedroom 2 and two twin beds (trundle) + a single child’s futon in bedroom 3). We have a beautiful west exposure (great sunsets) in a quiet, small bay on Lake Jessop only minutes from the town of Huntsville, Ontario. The swimming is great (no weeds!) and if you have small children, the hard packed sandy, shallow waterfront is ideal. Of course the water bouncer is always a hit with the older kids. We have a large sun deck right at the water with plenty of seating for soaking up the sun or watching the sun set with your favourite beverage in hand!

Well maintained and comfortable
The cottage was exactly as depicted in the VRBO description. The lock box instructions provided by the owner, Steve, worked with no problem. Once inside, the cottage was clean and inviting with just about everything provided. We only had to bring our own pillow slips, towels, facecloths, and toilet paper. The cottage was comfortable, charming, and quite roomy. The grounds were very well maintained with everything a family could possibly need for a pleasant stay provided. The only drawback was the lack of wifi. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.
We had a great experience at Steve and Diane's cottage and we recommend it to others. The cottage was clean and well equipped. We spent a lot of time at the dock which came with plenty of deck chairs and places to lounge. The close proximity to Huntsville made it easy to pick up groceries and other necessities. Steve was very responsive to questions we had and made a recommendation to attend the local Corn Roast! All in all a great experience!
Minus the rain we got while we were out there we enjoyed our stay very much, it was quiet and relaxing, just what we were looking for. The sunsets were breathtaking! The beds were comfortable, and the cottage was clean. Thank-you
Had a great stay, very clean cottage. Would definitely book again
Great family-friendly cottage!
Highly recommend Steve & Diane's cottage. We had a very enjoyable stay with 4 adults & 2 children under 9. Nicely maintained property with all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. Surprisingly quiet lake considering its proximity to Huntsville. My son enjoyed the friendly wildlife, including a deer that would leap across the property at dusk every evening and three ducks that hung around the dock. We like to try a new area in Ontario every summer but would definitely stay again.
Great family cottage with a ton to do!
We stayed here for a few days end of June. The cottage was well kept and clean. Other than linens and towels everything was provided. The cottage was ample space for my family of 6. My 3 and 5 yr old spent hours just playing in the sand and even sand toys and life jackets were provided ! The entry was shallow enough to not worry about their safety. My 10 yr old caught a ton of fish off th end of the dock too! The canoe was a bonus and kept my older ones busy. Plenty of seating was provided at the dock and fire pit and the gazebo was amazing for providing shelter from rain and sun! The lake is so peaceful and we enjoyed drinking out morning coffee there ! There are even some board games for those rainy days . All in all we had an amazing time and were sad to leave. Would also like to say the neighbours were very friendly! I would totally recommend this cottage to anyone especially those with young ones !
