Great family get-away.
Our three generation family (pre-teen to 70's) group all enjoyed the living space in both boathouse and cottage, the beautiful scenery and the water. Daily exercise was achieved by the many steps between cottage and boathouse. Excellent weather permitted maximum enjoyment of the decks at both locations.
Beautiful Lake but the 157 steps from the water to the main floor of the house is quite the workout ! Also the AC was broken and none of our party brought fans because we thought the home would have functioning AC. Sleeping and cooking became unbearable. Some of our group left prematurely. For over $8,000 a week, we would've expected some correction in the price or a more urgent response than "open the windows and hope the weather cools down".
Obviously, we were disappointed to receive this review, which does not accurately reflect the situation. We did have an issue with the A/C and we did everything possible to have it repaired before these guests arrived. The technician came the day before their arrival and we had hoped it would be available for their stay. Unfortunately, it required a special order part and the earliest date the technician could return to install the part was 2 days after their departure. There was absolutely nothing we could do to have it repaired earlier. We regret that the guests were inconvenienced but in the 15 years we have owned the Hermitage, we have never used the A/C ourselves. The majority of Muskoka cottages do not have A/C and cottagers generally embrace the warm weather when it arrives. These guests had 2 days of weather in the high 20s during their week-long stay followed by 3 days of 20 degree weather. We explained the situation to these guests in a lengthy email which did not include their misquotation but concluded as follows: “Fortunately, it appears the weather has cooled down and it will be cooler during the rest of your stay so hopefully the A/C will not be an issue”. We have rented the Hermitage for the past 15 years and well over 100 families have spent a very enjoyable time at The Hermitage, some returning for subsequent stays. The Hermitage has been featured on the TV show “Lakefront Luxury” and most recently in “Muskoka Living” magazine. Our goal is to exceed expectations and to do whatever we can to ensure a wonderful holiday in Muskoka for all our guests, as we have been doing since 2005
The place to stay
5 Star plus. If you want a great place to stay in Muskoka this is it.
Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Hermitge. It was a pleasure to have you and your family come to The Hermitage. Thanks again.
Could not have wished for more!
My family and I had the privilege of staying at The Hermitage for a week in July. The property is beyond stunning, and was the absolute perfect destination for our party of 9 (5 adults, 4 children). The view from the main cottage is like something from a postcard, and is both tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. There are lots of spaces to gather together, or to find a place to be alone! Our children particularly enjoyed the games room in the basement, which has a pool table, foosball, air hockey, and poker table. We spent many hours at the boat house, which has a kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. The owners generously encouraged us to use their kayaks, paddle boat, canoe, and tin boat. We had a dream vacation and were extremely impressed with the owners' attention to detail, and thoughtfulness during our stay. We could not recommend staying here more!
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Hermitage and thank you for the very nice review. The Hermitage is a special place and we would be delighted for you and your family to come back again sometime. It was a pleasure having you stay at The Hermitge. Thank you again.
Exceeded our high expectations
I rented The Hermitage for a week, for a family reunion (10 adults). The photos and owner's description lead us to expect a beautiful house and setting; however, the cottage,
boathouse, property, and views exceeded our expectations. Even though it rained everyday
(and sometimes all day) but one while we were there, we LOVED our stay. The main cottage is both spacious and warmly welcoming, and the boathouse is charming. Despite the rain, we kayaked and swam a bit, hiked, and watched thunderstorms and sunrises over the lake (the latter encouraged by the huge windows in the bedrooms). I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed with any aspect of their stay. And the owners were a pleasure to deal with. 5 stars are not enough for this gem.
Hello Rosemary, We are delighted you enjoyed your vacation with family at The Hermitage despite the rain. We throughly enjoyed helping to plan your family vacation. We are extremely happy The Hermitage exceeded your expectations. For privacy and view, it doesn't get much better in Muskoka. Thanks again and we look forward to you and your family coming back to The Hermitage very soon.
Stunning cottage with an even more stunning view
Our team spent the Thanksgiving Weekend at the Hermitage. The pictures did not prepare us for the beauty of our surroundings, the comfort and luxury of the cottage and the stunning views from each window of the house. We spent our days hiking, kayaking, playing pools, air hockey etc in the games rooms, watching movies and sports in the larger than life TV room and hanging out at the boathouse house which in itself is a beauty. It was a perfect getaway for our group and a great place to team build. I would recommend staying at the Hermitage any time of the year in its peaceful natural surrounding.
Thank you Paul and Sandra from the INDS Team.
We are delighted your team enjoyed The Hermitage and we are also delighted you hope to come back again to The Hermitage. It was the perfect time for the changing of the colours in Muskoka. Thanks again.
Den vakre Muskoka-regionen, som ligger omtrent 2 timer. nord for Toronto, er avgrenset av Georgian Bay på den ene siden og Algonquin Park på den andre. Muskoka er blant verdens berømte innsjøer. Området ble oppdaget av Samuel de Champlain i 1615. Regionen har mange naturskjønne innsjøer omgitt av skogkledde åser og granittstein, og tilbyr et bredt spekter av aktiviteter året rundt for enhver smak og aldersgruppe. Muskokas unike karakter og naturlige skjønnhet trekker folk fra hele verden. Skeleton Lake ble dannet av virkningen av en meteor, noe som forklarte dens noe sirkulære form og store dybde. Det er også grunnen til kalksteinsbunnen, som gir innsjøen sin berømte klarhet. I hjertet av Muskoka tilbyr Hermitage et bredt mangfold av aktiviteter i alle årstider. Slapp av og nyt den naturlige skjønnheten eller delta i et bredt utvalg av sport, sightseeing, kulturelle begivenheter og andre aktiviteter. Sommeridrett inkluderer fotturer, sykling, golf, båtliv, svømming, vannski, våkensport, tubing, jetski, fiske og treningssenter. Båtutleie er tilgjengelig i området. Det er to båthavner på Skeleton Lake.
Vintersport inkluderer sport: langrenn, snøscooter, trugeturer, aking, skøyter. Eremitasjen ligger svært nær både langrenns- og snøscooterløyper. De mange severdighetene for sightseeing inkluderer: Steamship Cruises på Muskoka-sjøen, Museer, Santa's Village, Algonquin Park. Alle veiene mellom motorvei 11 og motorvei 69 i Muskoka-området er ekstremt naturskjønne, spesielt motorveiene 518, 141, 3, 118 og 169. Byene Port Carling og Rosseau er vel verdt et besøk. Andre aktiviteter: Visning av dyreliv inkluderer hjort, bjørn, ulv, coyoter, ville kalkuner og mange andre dyr og fugler. Å stirre fra hyttedekket eller naustdekket er fantastisk. Shopping inkluderer mange unike butikker og butikker. Utmerkede restauranter spenner fra god mat til uformell. Kinoer og teater.
