Recent Anstruther Lake reviews

  • Excellent and wonderful owners. Maria & Bruce were incredible hosts!

    "This property is absolutely perfect in every way. We had all the comforts needed. We could sleep our entire family comfortably without feeling like we were on top of each other. The layout works perfect. We had 2 rainy days and the inside was enough space for us all to hang out. The lake water felt warm and silky and we had easy access in and out. It was easy to have my mother with us (she has a heart condition and can not scale inclines or rough terrain). She could easily get around and in and out of the water off the dock ladder. The bunk house is absolutely gorgeous and just a treat to sleep in. I claimed that spot right away! The best parts overall: the location, dock, water, decks, loons, view and atmosphere. Worst parts: when I originally found this place online I was doing a random search. I noticed the area (of Ontario Canada), that it was part of Canada Stays, owned by Canadians and in what I thought was Canadian dollars, so I clicked to book. Somehow and not completely obvious, I managed to be on the VRBO site (affiliated with Canada Stays), so therefore, although I saw the Canadian pricing and thought that's what I clicked, I was charged in American dollars. They took quite a chunk and refused to reimburse me and book it via their Canadian site. So we paid far too much and was stuck with that. THIS IS IN NO REFLECTION OF THE COTTAGE OWNERS, as they also couldn't help or have it reversed (they tried). ALSO.....Canada Stays did not pay them their cut until 3 days after we were here and we booked this back in March. So...consider this a warning, read the fine print of Canada Stays and VRBO. They cleverly set it up to take more money from Canadians. I won't ever use them again and will stick to Airbnb from now on. If you find Cottage LaMed in your search. ..do stay there, but don't get hosed by VRBO."

  • Comfy beds, spacious, lots of boats!

    "Tall Pines comes as advertised! My family spent just under a week at Tall Pines in late august. The beds were comfy, shower was great, and there were lots of boats to enjoy. Lee and Bruce were clear about what to expect and we would definitely return. The only drawback was the lake was filled with a lot of algae because of a warm winter & spring but we were warned of this ahead of time. We still enjoyed swimming and could paddle out a little ways for clearer waters."

  • Great cottage in a beautiful island spot

    "We had a wonderful time at this peaceful cottage. There is lots of space with 3 bedrooms in the main cottage, and two more spacious cabins, it is super clean and well organized, while still maintaining a "cottagey" feeling that we were looking for. There are various spots to sit and enjoy the scenery, from the dock with lounge chairs to a great deck with a big table to have dinner outside and watch the sunset. We enjoyed canoeing, kayaking around the other islands, and the swimming was great, the water is shallow enough to walk in, but gets nice and deep further out. The owners are very welcoming and pleasant, we had a great experience. We definitely recommend this great cottage in a beautiful spot, and will probably return in future years!"
