About the property

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!

Amenities include:

• Small beach area with shallow hard packed sand bottom

• Large dock and sun deck by the water

• Picnic table by the water

• Coffee maker and kettle provided

• Potable drinking water (taps in kitchen and bathroom)

• Two propane BBQs

Family Friendly Cottage on a Small Quiet Lake Minutes From Huntsville.

Just what we'd hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

The setting of this cottage is beautiful. We enjoyed privacy, watching the sunset from the deck or picture window. Swimming, canoeing, sitting on the dock reading and walking the cottage road were some of the activities we enjoyed. The cottage has all the comforts of home.

Magical!!!! Amazing! Want to come back every summer!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for a week with our three children (ages 6, 6 and 9). We spent the days outdoors, swimming, playing on the beach, canoeing, playing with the neighbor kids, watching the wildlife (chimpmunks) and playing with the toys that they had available for us. It was the most relaxing and fun vacation we've had. Perfect for the ages of our kids (and the adults!). My son wants to permanently live the cottage life. The beach area kept the kids occupied whenever we weren't swimming. The beach would be appropriate for younger kids too. The cottage was great and very comfortable (but we didn't spend much time in there as we just wanted to be down by the lake). The kitchen was well stocked. Other than the bed linens/towels, everything we needed was provided and very well stocked. It was really quick and easy to run into Huntsville for groceries or anything else we needed. We loved the town of Huntsville and would love to have spent more time there, but we just simply did not want to leave the lake and our cottage life there! The only issue we had was that the water was not working part of the time. This seemed like a one-time issue as everything else was in good working condition. Steve was very responsive to help us fix it, even though they were traveling and thousands of miles away at the time. If it weren't for that issue, this would have been a 5 (+++) star review. We can't wait to spend some more time here someday!

Perfect family cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights with our 10 month old and 3 year old and had a wonderful time - the cottage has everything we needed and more, and the shed full of water toys and boats kept our toddlers busy in the water for 10 hours a day. We will definitely book this place again any time we return to this area.

perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect way to end our holiday in Canada. It has it all. The lake is stunning, especially using the canoe and all the other various water toys we were left with. Location is superb as there is everything in driving distance ( some in walking). Barbecues watching the sunset over the lake was a big highlight too. If....when we return to Canada again, we will be sure to stay back here. Highly recommended!!!

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

we have two small children and we were looking for a cottage that would be fun for the kids. They were extra excited about having bunk beds to share, they loved the hiking trail across the road and got to experience the sunset while going in a canoe for the first time on the lake. (Plenty of life jackets to choose from) We chose to go mid September and the days were perfect, the night was cool enough to light a fire and snuggle. The cottage was clean and stocked with essentials like pots and pans. There was a little beach for the kids to play on, and although it was too cool to swim, they had sand toys available for them to play with, they even had a few ducks that hung around while they played! Excellent experience, my kids will talk about it for months, definitely the best experience we could have asked for for our first vacation together as a family!

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage! Everything was provided (aside from linens and towels), and the pictures don't do the view justice. Though the weather wasn't great the week we visited, we still had an excellent time on the lake canoeing, fishing from the dock, feeding the ducks in the morning, and relaxing down by the water. We would definitely go back again!
