About Tyler Johnston

My wife Leigha and I live in Toronto but grew up in small towns in Southern Ontario (Elora and Southampton). I attended Wilfrid Laurier University to study economics and Leigha attended George Brown College to study physical fitness. We have been together for 7 years and are proud parents to our French Bulldog, Bonnie.

Tyler Johnston purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Tyler Johnston chose Ontario

We decided to buy this property as soon as we saw the views from the deck. With 300 feet of frontage and being on a point, we enjoy expensive panoramic southern views of beautiful Star Lake (meaning beautiful sunshine all day). Also, the property itself is fantastic for everyone. There are stairs down to the water or a gently sloped path. There is a sand beach perfect for young children and pets. There is also deep water off the dock for diving and mooring a boat. And not to mention, PRIVACY. Because we have so much frontage and because we're on a point, we enjoy a ton of privacy. In addition, the cottage itself is beautiful and well-laid out. The common space is wide open with expansive views of the water. The finished basement has sound-proofing making it a perfect spot to have fun or put the kids to bed.

All in all, this property truly has it all and it's great for people of all ages!

A very comfortable stay for all of us (8 adults and 2 kids). Plenty to do to keep busy both on a sunny or a rainy day. Responsive and helpful owners. I'd come again!

Gorgeous cottage with all the amenities of home!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous cottage and complete with all amenities of home. Lots of things to keep kids and grownups entertained on the property even on a rainy day. Star Lake is beautiful and very quiet, great for fishing or just a peaceful canoe trip. Loved it so much the first time we came back for a second visit. We will definitly be back!

Great Property!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week here with plenty of room for the 8 of us. The kitchen has all the necessities, the beds are comfortable and the outdoor amenities are in good order. The beach is "user friendly" for young children and is relatively secluded from the neighbours. The fishing was a bonus. The cottage is a short drive from the village of Rosseau and is within 20 minutes of Parry Sound.

The lake isn't as busy as some of the others so you aren't constantly being buzzed by the big boats. We would return again in the future.

A Wonderful Cottage Experience

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was really beautiful, spotless and had absolutely everything you need for a wonderful weekend. The view from the cottage is spectacular. The location is perfect and everything you need is close by. The cottage is cozy and yet great space for everything and everyone. Our dogs loved the rocks and little beach out front. I will definitely go back.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely beautiful, extremely clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. The firepit beside the hottub under the stars was magical and the outside deck was a wonderful place to enjoy dinner and drinks. We will definitely be back!!

Cottage near Parry Sound

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great week at this rental. The cottage was very comfortable and inviting in a beautiful and relatively private setting. The lake is not too busy and fun for swimming and fishing. The kitchen had new appliances, and newer dishes and cookware made preparing meals and dining a pleasure. Bathrooms were clean and had nice fixtures, beds were very comfortable. Common areas nicely furnished and bright. The beach is small but private and large enough for family gatherings, games and sunbathing.

The only downside is that the downstairs is accessible only by going outside, but it is nicely furnished and comfortable. We all agreed that it is the kind of place we would love to revisit. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
