Beautiful location, with just the most gorgeous trees in the fall. We enjoyed cozy cottage nostalgia, and loved having fires and looking out at the sunset. Would definitely go back.

A beautiful waterfront cottage by pigeon lake. Had lots of activities to do such as canoeing, kayaking, bon fire, board games, etc. Me and my friends had a wonderful long weekend here and would highly recommend booking this cottage with the incredible host, Lora! read less

The views of the lake were amazing and we had some beautiful sunsets. The grounds were stunning with the carpet of red and orange leaves with Lora’s decorations of pumpkins and scarecrows. The cottage had everything you need and the beds were very comfotable. The firplace inside and the heater made the cottage very cozy. We were unable to use the canoes because of the windy conditions but enjoyed sitting at the beach area enjoying the views when the sun did appear. We also enjoyed a fire in the firepit outside and appreciated the wood was supplied by Lora. We had a very relaxing time there. read less

Spent a wonderful week here Aug 30-Sep 6, 2020. The cottage was very well kept, spacious enough for our family of 4 – the kids even had their own room with beautiful beds and views. Lora and Dave were super attentive and responded to the few needs we had while there almost as soon as we hit ‘send’ on the text – even up to a late Sat night request for toilet paper… which she delivered with a smile 🙂 The ammenities were great too – kids loved the peddle-boats and surfboards and my wife had a wonderful yoga session that Lora organized on the grounds. There are plenty of grocery stores around. The lake water was cold so couldn’t do much swimming, but that was to be expected for the time of year we decided to go at… and you can still do all the jet-skiing, boating etc you want on it anyway, so all around great value and fun! Definitely plan on being back here for years to come… read less

We enjoyed our stay in the Jack Pine cottage. Check-in and out was seamless and the cottage was very clean. The location of the cottage was as close to the water that you could get and right next to the beach. Please note that the beach is shared with the other four cottages so be prepared for some noise. We took advantage of the many water toys available (kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, etc.) so lots of opportunities to get out on the lake. Wifi was spotty so don’t expect to work, but fine to check social media. Lora was very responsive to any questions we had. Her guidebook had some great suggestions and we visited the Central Smith Creamery for ice cream, Kawartha Buttertart Factory for treats and Craftwerks to look at antiques. We did a day trip to the Petroglyphs Provincial Park for some hiking and learned about the indigenous rock carvings. read less

Spent a week here for a family vacation and the kids absolutely loved it. Great beach area, playground, fire pit, fishing, and we were able to keep an eye on the kids while they ran around the property. The lake is a little weedy so not great for adult swimming, but we took out kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. Overall great stay, thank you Lora! read less

Lora is a lovely host. I even got to go out on a SUP for a lovely yoga session (she offers weekly SUP yoga in the summer). Highly recommend to try. That being said, the public beach was right next to our cottage and what was meant to be a private dock had multiple other visitors a day. The cottages are very rustic and very close to each other, it simply wasn’t quite what we were hoping for as a quiet couple getaway, but I think it is a great place for families! They all seemed to have lots of fun fishing and enjoying the amenities. We still had a good time as well, the view from the cottage is gorgeous and the sun sets right in front of you. Thank you Lora! read less

Loras place was clean and spacious for the 4 of us. It had everything you needed exactly what the ad said. Lora responded almost instantly to any inquiries we had and is also flexible. If you want somewhere where it provides all the amenities such as beach, water toys, rental of boat, playground this is it. We will return again. read less

Perfect cottage for a weekend getaway with friends or family! Lora and Dave were very welcoming, kind & helpful hosts. We enjoyed having our own private dock and a private cottage feel, while still being close to the local stores such as walmart and lcbo which were only 15-20 minutes away (driving). The free canoe, kayak, peddle boats accessible by the shared beach area along with boat rentals at their marina provided us with lots of fun activity out in the sun! read less

Lora and Dave have clearly worked hard to build this great spot and make it an amazing destination. There is a large sandy beach, with sandy walkout into the water that is only about wading-pool depth pretty far out (my three year old can touch with his head out of the water at the end of the dock) making it perfect for little kids – good luck find this any where else. When we first booked I was a bit hesitant that there were 5 cottages on the property but they are adequately spread out and the beach is quite large with lots of seating and shade, so you don’t feel like you’re intruding on anyone’s vacation and it doesn’t feel like anyone is intruding on yours. Actually it was pretty fun having other families around and we got to know a couple other families pretty well which was a pleasant little surprise. There were lots of toys for the adults- stand up paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, and peddle boats available. More than enough for all the different cottages and at any given time if we wanted to go out on the lake we could easily do so. Lora and Dave also offer a boat rental which was super fun and reasonably priced. I have never driven a boat before but they gave lots of instructions and gave us tips on where to go and popular destination spots in the area accessible by boat. The cottage we were in was really clean, and we didn’t realize how clean it was until after a couple hours when we all started trekking in sand from the beach, it gets messy fast. They clearly spent a lot of time making sure the place is cleaned top to bottom in between guest. The bedsheets, pillows, and towels were soft and clean, fridge was spotless. The wifi was pretty spotty but good enough to check social media if you needed, But if you need to work off the wifi don’t expect to be able to make zoom calls or anything like that. Having said that, we actually were happy to be off our phones and computers and enjoy our little vacation. Lora and Dave were easily accessible by phone or you can catch them around the property if you had any questions, great hosts and all-around great people. We are already planning our trip for July 2021 and can’t wait to go back! read less

I can’t speak highly enough of Lora’s cabins. Perfect, stress free area for kids and parents. Lots to do with the family. The hosts were very accommodating and quick to respond. Definitely will be coming back. Thank you so much read less

My wife and I stayed for two nights at Lora’s place for the holidays. As said in the listing, you can’t get any closer to the lake than this! The description of the place is accurately listed. Some steps had to be adjusted due to covid restrictions (which is good). Response from Lora was prompt and she was able to accommodate us with our questions and request. The free use of water equipments (kayaks, paddle boards) was a big plus, which most of what we did over the weekend. 🙂 Would recommend to friends and families for a neat getaway! read less

Lora’s place was a community of 4-5 cottages that each had their own private dock and fire pit. There were lots of boats, canoes, kayaks etc to use at all times free of charge and an option to rent other boats like jetskis! Our fridge wasn’t working too well but Lora responded quick and got a new fridge right away. There are many activities for the day and amazing bonfires at night. Make sure you bring lots of bug spray!! read less

Staying at Lora’s was INCREDIBLE!! Lora is an amazing host who will accommodate your wants and needs and is fantastic at responding to any questions or concerns you may have. She won’t bother you and gives you your space. The cottage was a perfect size for 4 people and its definitely a great stay for a family or a group of friends!! One thing you should be aware of when booking this cottage is that it is NOT PRIVATE. That was fine with us but it is a shared beach and waterfront. You are right beside multiple other cottages. The wifi in the cottage isn’t the best but if you’re coming to the cottage to get away and relax, that won’t be a problem. I would definitely come back and stay at Lora’s place again it was an amazing experience!! read less

This place is perfect for families with small kids. The playground and beach area is close to the cottages so they can have more independence. We stayed at the birch view cottage. It’s just a few feet from the beach. If you want Access to your own dock I recommend trying another cottage on site. This cottages dock is too skinny for 2 people and in a poor location. It did not bother us as we didn’t want my 2 year old on it anyways. Birchview is directly in front of the beach and beside the playground so for us it was a fair trade. Overall it was a great stay. They lent us a bunch of toys for my son to play with which we were so greatfull for. Communicating with the hosts was very easy and the place was very comfortable. Lake is very weedy but the small beach area is good. We went end of June and had no problem swimming. Would recommend this place again. read less

There is a not a bad thing I can say about this place…. the cottage itself is perfect for 2-4 people! My husband and I stayed for 10 days and the cottage was very clean, has everything you would need and we really felt like it was “home” for this time frame. The amenities that are available right outside your door provide non-stop activities should you choose to do so – or as we did some nights, just relax on your private dock, build a fire, bbq dinner and watch the most amazing sunsets. Lora and Dave are also amazing hosts – the care and thoughtfulness that goes into all the little touches (for example a welcome card and fresh cut flowers when we arrived) truly make this a wonderful experience when visiting their place. You will NOT be disappointed if you book this place – can’t wait to go back! read less
