“Fantastic place”

Reviewed 3 May 2016

Lauren and Grant: Thank you for an awesome experience. Our group of all 60ish couples were very impressed with the house and the amount of included amenities. The special touches made it very welcoming. We have rented places before in a lot of locations but this is by far the best we have ever stayed at. I was very surprised by the complimentary coffee and tea as well as the use of anything in the cupboards including spices etc. The internet worked great and the games that were available helped keep us busy. Thank You for an great experience

Owner's reply: We are still in awe of your portable 'horseshoe' set! So glad you had a great time and we're happy to hear the house 'exceeded expectations' - that's what we want!! Look forward to seeing you all again!! Lauren and Grant :)

“More than lives up to expectation”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2013

This 'cottage' was very comfortable for our group of 7. We were pleasantly surprised on arrival on how well equipped it was. As promised, there were lots of towels including beach towels and sheets for the beds. There was also sufficent supply of shampoo, conditioner, soap and toilet paper in the bathroom. In the kitchen there was olive oil and a few other items generally needed for cooking, a good supply of paper towels, and dishwasher soap. There was also laundry soap in the laundry area. The beach area is well equipped with 2 large inflatables, kayaks, and some small inflatables for the children. Adult life jackets were available. Young children need to bring their own. Water shoes are a good idea. Water entry is Stoney for the first 5-10 ft. but stays shallow for a good distance. The cottage has a fire pit in the backyard and some games available including badminton. The only thing missing was air conditioning. The owner, Lauren, is thinking of adding that. Even without it, we found sleeping was comfortable with the ceiling fans. The front porch was a wonderful place to sit in the evening and the back porch is now also a covered porch so we ate most dinners outside even when it rained. I should mentioned that Lauren lives 2 doors down. She was very friendly and helpful in getting us set up. She is available if needed. One of the best things is this cottage was a 2 hr. drive from home. Using the 407 both ways instead of the 401, we missed all the congestion that was on the 401. There are grocery stores within a 15 min drive of the cottage so no need to take up all supplies.

Another AMAZING holiday spent at this gem!

This is our third time staying at this cottage, and it is always a great experience. The place is beautiful, spacious, fully equipped with everything you could imagine, and Lauren is fantastic to deal with. Very friendly and helpful. Every time we've gone, she's added or changed something, always making it even better than before. We enjoyed it, my grown children enjoyed it, and my granddaughters really enjoyed it! I'm happy to report that no babies were born while there....but my daughter-in-law did give birth only 6 days after leaving. My daughter is due this week..... they were both very comfortable at this cottage, even in the late stages of pregnancy....that says a lot!! Lauren, you're wonderful, the place is fantastic, the neighbours are nice, and we will be back :) As a matter of fact, I'll be back in just a few weeks for our annual Ladies Weekend Getaway in September!! I absolutely love the fact that it's only an hour away to your paradise! See you again soon!

A relaxing retreat close to Toronto. Amazing!

Date of Stay
July 26, 2014

We go cottaging once a year to explore different parts of Ontario. This year, we decided to stay close to GTA to avoid the stress of cottage traffic and the long drive. When you have 2 little ones that are car sick, the short drive to Keswick is really nice. We were 4 adults and 4 kids, ranging between the ages of 4-8. As many of the reviews said, the pictures on the site do not do the place justice (and usually it is the other way around!). It was really convenient that everything was on hand, including bedding, staple oils and spices, laundry detergent/fabric softener, towels, beach towels, paper napkins, toilet paper, and tissue paper. I've had to lug all of those last year to a different cottage and so not fun! The place was clean, beautiful and luxurious... we definitely felt pampered. Lauren, the owner, lives a couple of doors down and was so extremely friendly & helpful when needed. It was actually convenient to have her close by in case we had any questions or needed anything. The dock came equipped with so many toys for the adults and kids to enjoy. It was better than expected. The kids had so much fun and the adults enjoyed relaxing on the dock, looking at the beautiful view. Overall, it had everything that we wanted and so much more! Would definitely recommend to others and come back again.

Overall an amazing weekend!

Read all the reviews and saw all the pictures but still, once we got there it was far more amazing. Our group consisted of 10 between the ages of 20-30. I've been accustomed to renting out cottages for a long time now, and the owner is by far the best I've ever dealt with. She's extremely accommodating, super helpful, sweet, and gave us a lot of space and privacy (though she did drop by to give us a homemade pie from her mother!). The place was gorgeous and amazingly well kept. I would definitely come back again very soon!

There are no words to describe the beauty of this property! The pictures really do not do it justice as it is a massive home with so much to offer. Stayed there over the Family Day Long weekend in February 2014 with 10 people. It fight everyone comfortable with more than enough space for everyone. One of the best features is the amount of bathrooms- each room has its own separate bathroom which is very convenient for large groups. Each room is decorated beautifully- like something out of a magazine. On top of that, the furniture is impeccable and most of the items are updated antiques which look unreal. The owner is an absolute treasure of a human being. She bought a dozen roses and put them in a vase along with a Valentine's card and a box of chocolate (Valentine's day was the day before we arrived). She laid out towels in arrangements, left little soap and shampoo bottles everywhere and even emailed over the weekend to ensure we had everything. There are no words to explain how amazing she is; reminded me of having an amazing grandmother who is more concerned with your enjoyment than her own. The view of the lake is also spectacular and all of the neighbors are extremely nice. Overall, one of the best places I have ever visited and I have told plenty of people of my amazing weekend. Do not hesitate to book this property as you will not be disappointed. She also had a gift basket of coffee, spices, teas etc laid out so we did not have to bring so many food items. You will love it here!

Family Christmas in Winter Wonderland

Date of Stay
December 23, 2013

We had 7 people at this wonderful home for Christmas this year. The owners were so helpful and kind and the house was extremely well appointed and beautifully kept. The photos don't quite do it justice as it was even more grande than we were expecting. Reading by the living room fireplace or drinking wine and chatting around the kitchen island made for a wonderful holiday. I would happily return here in Summer to better enjoy the lakefront and have already recommended it to others. Other conveniences include the close by services (groceries etc 10-15 minutes away, coffee shop in Sutton, a nice restaurant for a special dinner in Jackson Pt.)

Absolutely Beautiful Getaway Home.... not too far from home

Date of Stay
December 6, 2013

A group of us rented this stunning home for the weekend for a reunion. The location was absolutely perfect. Not too far away from the city (45-60min from the GTA). Right by the lake with beautiful views. Wish it was the summer so that we could have enjoyed the lake more. The house itself was perfect! It was like a mini resort getaway. Every guest that came was ecstatic and very impressed at the quality and beauty of the home. Everyone wanted to come back again in the summer! And the icing on the cake of our whole weekend experience was the homeowner Lauren. She was sweet, friendly, easy to work with and was very accommodating to our needs. Awesome home! Awesome owner! Awesome weekend! Thanks again for everything Lauren!
