Beautiful, clean house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at this house over August long weekend. The house was spotless and the location was great for walking around downtown and listening to harbourfest music. Lydia made us delicious muffins and was so friendly and accommodating for us. Thank you so much for everything Lydia! Would highly recommend this spot!

Fantastic water front home

  • 5 of 5

The Lake of the Woods property is a terrific getaway find. Located minutes from the main water front area, just a block away from shopping, dining, museums, sightseeing, and much more. We were greeted by the owner,Lydia, when we arrived.She showed us through the apartment pointing out all the main features, while giving us a bit of history on the great home. Everything is updated and modern. King-size bed in the master bedroom with a view of the lake, two other bedrooms with queen sized beds, sofa beds in the living room and sun room. Room for 10 comfortably. There is a fully stocked kitchen. Lydia even had tea, coffee, and cream& sugar at the ready. Full sized fridge, which was great for us as we were transporting the wedding cake for our son's wedding that week. Pots, pans, bowls, glasses, cutlery, dinnerware, and everything you could want. She even made blueberry muffins to enjoy after we settled.

The house is so quiet we got the most restful sleep in weeks. It was so centrally located we walked almost everywhere. Most evenings we sat out at the fire pit in the back yard and watched the boats go by and the sun set.

Lots of dining around. I especially enjoyed the Cornerstone Restaurant. The Almond coated, cheese stuffed chicken is to die for!

On the evening of the wedding we had the wedding guests(20) come back to the house, with Lydia's permission. We all relaxed either by the fire or up in the spacious living room. Everyone was so complementary on our surroundings. It never felt crowded.

I will definitely be returning to this wonderful home.

This home is a very well-kept piece of history that was so clean and full of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

From a completely dish-stocked kitchen to endless firewood, we were very impressed with the overall experience. We didn't have to worry about anything but food. No need to call for extra towels or even toiletries as there was plenty on hand. The graciousness of the owner has already made us talk about going again next year. Hopefully the boat dock will be available by then. Located in the most convenient part of Kenora, shops within walking distance and impeccably clean... so relaxing! Thank you so much! Kim Klopick

Awesome Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Kenora with our kids and grandkids for the weekend. We had hotel rooms booked when this property came up on homeaway. After being very impressed with what we saw on the website we decided to book this property. Much cheaper than hotel rooms and it was a home atmosphere. Great location...walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the Harbourfront!!The home is is equipped with all the necessities and extremely clean!! All rooms are quite spacious, never felt crowded with five adults and two kids. Beautifully redone to look very modern inside...very comfy furniture. The beds are extremely comfortable with fresh white linens. No shortage of beautiful white towels. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals. We cooked all our meals here, weren't planning on it but we just felt very at home. Beautiful views of the lake from the bay windows and you can watch the sunset every night from the comfort of the living room, master bedroom, sunroom or deck!! Outdoors you have a BBQ, tiered decking, adirondack chairs around a fire pit. My daughter & her family rented the one bedroom upstairs which also has all the same reviews as the 3 bedroom main level. Her sunroom had an awesome view of the lake and sunsets. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. Any questions she's right there for you!! Will definitely return to this property
