Why Yolanda Mak chose Bala
Carlos and I found the place we had been waiting for all our lives when we bought "Over the Moon" cottage. The towering trees, smooth granite rock and gorgeous Moon River! It is absolutely a stunning location. Such privacy, 10 acres surrounded by wilderness, is uncommon in the Muskoka region.

We had a great week at Over The Moon. The cottage is well equipped with everything that you can possibly need. The location is very quite and surrounded by forest and a shallow river.
If you want to unplug and enjoy nature this is the location!
Lazy summer days on Moon River
We loved our stay at over the moon!!! It was everything and more from fishing every day to canoeing down the river. It was great to unplug and relax down on the doc
Yolanda was a great host and was always quick to respond to any questions that I had. I would definitely rent here again
Our family enjoyed our week at Over the Moon. It's a beautifully built cabin. My twelve-year old put a lot of mileage on the swing, and sixteen year old walking on the rocks along the riverside. They loved having the loft to themselves. We swam to the falls most days, which is really neat. There was plenty of electricity to have lights on in the evening and charge cell phones. It feels remote, and yet all that Muskoka has to offer is quite handy. Highly recommend for a unique cottage experience!
Absolutely stunningly beautiful!!!
We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you need. We definitely brought more then we needed lol. The view from the cottage down to the water is spectacular. The water is warm and great for swimming and also a lot of fun fishing. It is off the beaten path but Yolandas directions were perfect and easy to follow. We also enjoyed going into the adorable town of Bala where you have everything you need! Overall a great time and we hope to go back!!!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your time at our cottage. We have taken a lot of time and effort to create a place that we love and it is so rewarding to hear that others we share it with feel the same way. We'd love to have you back!
Quiet and peaceful
The cottage was open and beautiful. The beds were comfortable. We loved the master bedroom with a balcony. We loved eating in the wonderful dining room. But the best part was the dock and waterfront. We swam several times a day, and went for canoe rides. A bit of a trek getting down to the water though. Being off the grid didn't bother us at all. It was a wonderful holiday.
beautiful place, adventure awaits
We had a wonderful time with our family (kids aged 3, 5 and 7). Nothing was lacking at all. And the scenery and swimmable water was so magical. Just close enough to town that you can enjoy the quaint Muskoka vibes of Bala and daily donut runs. But far enough off the grid that you really feel as though you are having a unique vacation and doing something special. If you are open to new experiences, and not just a standard cottage rental, give this place a go.
We are so delighted to that your family had a great time at our cottage.
Out cottage in a very private location of the popular Muskoka Lakes district on the Canadian Sheild. This is the land of towering pine trees, granite rock and clean flowing rivers and lakes.
