Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Was a great getaway. Had everything you need to be comfortable and nothing at all to worry about. Swimming at the dock was a nice touch. Didn't want to leave

We enjoyed our stay. Lovely, spacious home with W/D, dishwasher, bathtub. Shallow sandy Beach. Super

  • 4 of 5

Three bedrooms, three bathrooms. Beautiful full wall of windows looking into the trees. Deer passing by every day. All the comforts of home. Lots of parking. Fire pit with Muskoka chairs. Nice dock with rippled Sandy bottom. Good fishing.

Drawbacks were: cottage not on the water, dock not appropriate for mooring our boat, dock 300 metres down the road from cottage. Items to bring are oven mitts, salad bowls, leftover food containers, foil/ Saran Wrap, soap, shampoo, detergent.

Another year, another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row we stayed at Ian and Amie's beautiful cottage in Dwight. As usual, the property was clean and well stocked with basic supplies when we arrived, making our stay easy and straightforward. We were hit with a severe thunderstorm during our stay and lost power, but Ian was super helpful and walked us through the backup generator setup to ensure we had a little bit of power during the outage.

Looking forward to another visit next year! Thanks again to Ian and Amie for the hospitality!

Let It Rain

  • 5 of 5

Despite a damp weekend we enjoyed a great weekend away. A trip into Huntsville and stops at craft shops along the way made for an interesting afternoon and then a comfortable quiet evening in. Cards and games. Great place to enjoy friends and family

Pretty good

  • 4 of 5

It is a very nice property, right in the woods. Everything you need is there.

If there's one friendly suggestion, it would be to make arrangement for picking up the garbage. It is inconvenient for the guests to haul the garbage to a dump at the end of the stay.... after paying a cleaning fee.

Thanks for a nice weekend.
