Wonderful Cottage Vacation
We had a fantastic week at this cottage. Our host was very accommodating and the cottage was everything and more than it said it was. I would highly recommend this spot for anyone looking for a relaxing week with friends and family.
Perfect Canadian cottage getaway...
We booked this property well in advance, since great cottage rentals are hard to come by, and we were not disappointed.
The cottage had everything we needed for our two week stay. Situated on lakefront but accessible by car, a nice dock, good swimming, kayaks, canoes, and floaties, lakeside deck, awesome bunkie/boathouse, fully stocked kitchen (cooking supplies/utensils, coffee maker, microwave, etc.), comfy living room with stereo, tv, and huge video library, three bedrooms with double beds, bathroom with great shower and water pressure, lovely dining veranda, bbq, firepit, etc.
The lake was fairly quiet except for the occasional loon calls and woodpeckers.
The location was located close to amenities (Gooderham, Kinmount, Minden, and Haliburton), which made it easy to pick up extra groceries or go for an ice-cream in the area.
There is no wifi at this cottage, which was a blessing. We concentrated instead on good conversation, making meals together, lake swims and enjoying nature. It was great to truly disconnect.
Our hosts were very accommodating and readily available via text, but not intrusive.
Ten out of ten for us and would definitely consider renting again.
Great Family Cottage
A great place for a family vacation. The lake was a great size and very swimmable. The cottage is cosy, but very functional with a good working kitchen and the bonus of the screened in porch out front. The addition of sleeping quarters in the boathouse, at lake level was what sealed the deal. Our boys loved sleeping down there and having their own space. The addition of water toys (SUP, kayak, canoes, paddleboat), games and dvd’s meant that there was always lots to do.
The only drawback was that by relying on renters to clean the cottage after their stay, the degree of cleanliness will vary.
Regardless, we would not hesitate to rent this location again.
Cosey, private and well equiped
Perfect place for a city gettaway, it is cosey and fully equiped. We had a wonderful time.
Our July 2018 vacation cottage rental at Gooderham
A beautiful, rustic, true cottage with an easy-to-use more modern kitchen. The lake was perfect for swimming, canoeing and fishing. We used the many water “toys” every day...2 canoes, a kayak, a pedal boat, a paddle board, etc... the sky at night is amazing with the Milky Way visible. We used the boathouse for an extra bedroom, and it is a special spot. Saw a grebe carrying its babies on its back, heard and saw a pair of loons every day.
There is a climb down to the dock, deck, boathouse and lake and back up.
Overall, I would give this cottage, lake and vacation a 10 out of 10.....probably the perfect weather contributed to our excellent time.
Thanks to Anne-Marie for the use of their cottage and for the comprehensive “cottage manual” which addressed all of our questions, for checking to make sure we were happy with everything!
Beautiful Traditional Cottage
We truly loved the cottage! It was quiet and very nicely organized. We had brought most of our Kitchen tools but Anne-Marie has everything well kept.
We did not make use of the bedroom in the boat house but we definitely would next time. We made full use of the canoe, kayak and paddle boat. One little set back was the paddle boat, it only works on reverse so make sure to 2 grab paddles should you use it.
We never ventured out to the deck at night but it would something to do next time.
