Quiet spot
This cottage was a great spot for a nice quiet weekend. Not too far from Bracebridge for errands or restaurants.

Very nice place
We really enjoyed our stay at Lori's cottage. We did hear the campground across the river while on the dock but there were very few boats. Canoeing first thing in the morning was great. We were usually the only ones on the water. Is not far from Bracebridge, Huntsville, Gravenhurs and Port Carling so lots to explore.

Fair 4.0
This is NOT A FULL COTTAGE RENTAL. Check the fine print to see this is an UPPER LEVEL APARTMENT OF A COTTAGE. Owner lives below or rents basement unit. In addition to not being private, this is directly across from a LARGE BEACH RESORT with at least 30 people on the beach daily about 100 yards away making noise that you can hear from the cottage 7am to 11pm. Don’t book this location if you want a quiet, private getaway. There were also mice in the apartment which the landlord said she would deal with. The stairs are numerous, a good hike up the hill. Lori was good with communicating and helpful but I found the ad for the rental deceiving with hidden negatives.

Tree House Adventure
The property was very clean and had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. Directions provided by the owner were easy to follow. This cottage is located directly across the water from a campground/ trailer park during our week at the cottage this campground was pretty busy with lots of kids and families out playing in the water sunrise to sunset. I don’t mind the noise of people laughing and having fun but if you are looking for a quiet tranquil sit on the dock to sit and enjoy the water you will need to get up before the kids are awake. Because the river is not too wide privacy is a an issue. The water was warm and we enjoyed the swimming. The pathway down to the dock is a fair hike we are a fairly fit family and we were winded coming back up so you need to pack up your drinks and snacks when you go down to the water because it’s not a trip you want to take 3-4 times a day. We had an issue that we brought to Lori’s attention she was very quick to respond and had her handyman over to fix it. Rained one day we drove onto Bracebridge which was 15min away cute little town with nice shops and good eats, overall we enjoyed our stay and the cottage was comfortable.

Wonderful time! Lori is a great host!
Lori had everything laid out wonderfully at the cottage. She anticipated the questions that you may have in the house manual. It was a very relaxing time with my two sisters and the water was amazing. The only downfall...the time went too fast and I wish we could have stayed longer!

Clean, quite, like home.
Although the beds need updating, they did not diminish the experience at all. Fabulous location and a great place to have friends and family for dinner.

Home Away From Home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It was neat, clean, inviting and quite cosy! It was well appointed and including such items as toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, dishwasher pods for the week and all the kitchen necessities was a really nice touch. Although a bit of a trek to and from the dock, the fact the owner has stairs built into the ground and a handrail going all the way down is a huge plus! It's worth the trek down and up at least once a day. No better place to enjoy a glass of wine, read a book, fish off the dock or simply "be". The dock is a good size and having the two Muskoka chairs on the dock was a nice touch. The large deck with the table and chairs for outside dining and two more Muskoka chairs for simply sitting and relaxing was also an added bonus. Honestly, the only suggestion I have is the living room needs another lamp or two. We found the light on the ceiling fan too bright, but the two lights on the walls were not quite enough. Adding a pair of matching lamps for reading purposes would be beneficial. Thank you to our host; we would definitely book this property again and would recommend it to others!!!"
