    "We had a great time at the Moonrakers cottage! Besides bringing your own towels, everything else is provided for. A great spot for relaxing on the deck and by the fire pit. The week was very quiet with few cottages seeming to have people around. Plenty of water sport activities kept us busy and there was lots of fishing right from the dock (32 steps down). We brought our own boat and the docking for it worked very nicely. With having a jet drive boat, I’m always worried about weeds in the water that the boat can suck up. The channel that Moonrakers is on is well maintained by the cottage owners... the other channels in the area not so much. So was very happy with that. Note: the Kawartha Park Marina ramp was much better for a 20' boat than the Burleigh Falls Inn ramp. Shopping for anything is close enough by car... but much more fun by boat! The bunkie was excellent for our older son... gave him his own space to hang out in. Our only challenge was the internet. We were told upfront it wasn’t the best, but we struggled getting our IPad to access any internet pages beyond Hotmail and Facebook. We never did figure out how to get on Netflix (as told we could use if we had an account). We aren’t the most technically inclined, so perhaps some instructions on how to get past the ‘Bell Connect’ screens and/or setup the Comcast would have been helpful. This didn't bug me so much (wasn't there for the internet), but kids were a bit frustrated. Overall a great vacation in a great location."

  • Wonderful family weekend away spot!

    "This is a beautiful and well maintained property right on the water. It has peaceful views and lots of room for a family get away. We loved it so much this past weekend that we are already planning a return trip next year and maybe this summer too."

  • 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!"

  • Just what the doctor ordered!

    "This was the perfect rental for our family of 6, including our elderly parents. We were looking for flat land, very few steps and stairs and this cottage delivered. The beds were super comfortable, the kitchen had everything you could possibly need and the octagonal shape was unique and very spacious. The property had lots of sun and shade, lots of seating around a great firepit and a beautiful shaded deck and bbq spot. We loved sitting on the deck or docks overlooking the channel. It was so relaxing and fun to watch people go by in canoes, paddleboards, kayaks and the odd boat of all sizes. The neighbours were friendly but quiet and probably quite relieved that we were too ;) It was a very peaceful piece of paradise and we would love to return. Thank you Jackie for being so helpful in helping us decide if your place was right for us. You were most hospitable in every way. We truly appreciate you allowing us to rent your cottage and make lasting memories. Sincerely, Cathy & family :)"
