About Jennifer Smythson and Jeff Shinozaki

Jennifer and I bought Echo Bay Cottages and the Echo Beach House 2 years ago on a trip through Prince Edward County. We walked onto the property and simply fell in love with it.

Jennifer Smythson and Jeff Shinozaki purchased this house in 2012

Why Jennifer Smythson and Jeff Shinozaki chose Ontario

For Jenn and I, we had vacationed in Prince Edward County for almost 10 years, 'cottaging' and renting a 2 bedroom cottage on West Lake. The 2 bedroom cottage was part of a larger group of cottages that we ended up renting with 2 other families. When Jenn and I came across Echo Bay, it was an incredible resemblance for us and felt 'right' for both of us. Echo Bay was the only property in Prince Edward County we looked at because we fell in love with it the moment we set foot on the grounds.

We've just finished hosting guests for our 2nd year now and we have throroughly enjoyed the experience. The guests we have most typically 'bonded' with are easy going, laid back, considerate, friendly, and full of integrity - our kind of people!!!

Within Prince Edward County, there is just simply so much to do. Jenn and I have been frequenting the County for over 10 years now and every weekend it seems we are experiencing something new.

Great family cottage

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time with our family of 8 adults. The main floor was great living space large enough for everyone. Nice large lawn going right the lake. We enjoyed nights outside looking at the stars and enjoying the fire pit. Owners couldn't be more accommodating. Had a wonderful time!

Great Place, Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Great 4 days at Lakefront House, amazing view from living room and patio!

Swimming and kayaking from front of property and a 5 min drive to Sandbanks.

Property does share land with 3 other smaller houses, but that does not affect the stay.

Lovely cottage and great for dog owners and fishers

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully equipped, comfortable and spacious cottage. We loved the three-sided view and the easy water access. Our host was most welcoming and accessible. We look forward to further stays at Echo Bay!

Great Place, Great Owners --Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My family has probably rented at least a dozen cottages in Ontario in the last decade, and I gotta say this was the best overall experience we've had so far.

The house is bright, spacious, and looks even better than it does in the photos online. The main floor is open-concept, so it is really conducive for everyone to hang out together, including whoever's on dinner/dishwashing duty. The house was warm and toasty for our winter stay, and we were able to adjust the temperature for every room. The view is fantastic and I can see how nice it'd be in the summer to sit outside on the deck and watch the sunset. The place feels new, bright, airy, and is flooded with sunlight during the day. The location is quiet and a short drive away from parks and woodsy hikes/walks.

The owners were helpful and generous of spirit. They answered all of our questions quickly and in so much detail. They'd stocked the kitchen with all sorts of appliances --including a very strong blender that we used to make orange slushies. Our beds were already made with clean sheets when we arrived, and a stack of clean towels were folded in the laundry room. They treated us like we were friends, which cannot be underestimated. We've experienced renters who were hard to reach, or gave us soooo many strict rules and guidelines, that it really was quite stressful.

A wonderful home right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house twice on short getaways from the city. It is a great base for exploring Prince Edward County and has wonderful views in every direction. It's extremely comfortable and well-equipped, and the hosts are easy to deal with and eager to ensure that all your needs are met. The description and pictures are very accurate, and overall it's a great place!

Although it was late in the season and therefore quiet, it looks like an ideal summer rental with lots of water-based activities available. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this place to families/friends looking for a lakefront getaway, and hope to return myself someday!
