Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had an amazing time here! The house is stocked with anything you could imagine! Even condiments in the refrigerator and cabinets. We had bought a little too much at the grocery so when we left we left some of the stuff there for the next guest to enjoy. The cottage was clean and spacious for all of us. The lake is absolutely amazing! We had a blast fishing from the deck and we even was able to get our John boat back and into the lake. Everything is so peaceful and convenient. Our 5 year old loved the private mini beach

average - could be really good with a little bit of TLC

  • 3 of 5

the cottage decor was great and no shortage of kitchen items. the floor was not very good, but Marcel did state he had to have it re-repaired. my only complaint would be that the barbecue needed cleaning and was left really dirty so we had to do that prior to using and the screens/windows on the inside of the cottage also need cleaning, i do understand many folks just use AC but we love the windows to be opened and they could have been wiped down. the muskoka chair is broken and really should be tossed out along with the boat rack, rusted and broken. the view was great, and the water wonderful for swimming. i know folks like to leave certain items behind, but honestly i think items should be tossed, for example someone left ice cream in the fridge, well that is something i just would not eat, that type of thing, great place to go biking and fishing, lots of room which was great...all it needs is a little bit of TLC and it would be great.

Good location, good overall accommodations, well stocked kitchen, great hospitality by owner.

  • 4 of 5

Good location, good overall accommodations, well stocked kitchen, and great hospitality by owner. My main recommendation to improve the experience would be to have the exterior of the cottage and the grounds sprayed for spiders. There are way too many spiders on the property. The cottage could use some other general maintenance, but dealing with the spiders on a consistent basis would be the best way to get immediate results.

Thanks for a nice week. We had great weather, which helped too.

Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a wonderful week at The Beach Sands Cottage. We had perfect summer weather most of the week and enjoyed sitting outside and looking out onto the peaceful lake. The kids loved the private beach and the shallow water. The cottage is much larger inside than it appears from the outside and is clean and beautifully decorated.

There was plenty of room for all of us. Everything that you can think of was supplied. It was nice not to have to bring our own bed linens and towels. We could even watch Netflix on the large TV. The owners are lovely and did whatever they could to make our stay comfortable. We would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a lovely, peaceful cottage on a beautiful lake.

Great cottage for a larger family with 4 kids.

  • 5 of 5

We always love coming back to this cottage to spend a week of peacefulness. There is something magical about water, being able to relax sitting alongside the water or renting the kayaks and paddleboard and enjoying the water. The cottage has a great layout for our family of 6 and I can even host a gathering/BBQ with my immediate family, my cousins, my aunts and uncles. The cottage is very nicely decorated and there are many sitting areas to read a book and/or relax.
