Why Tina chose Mattawa
We've loved this log cottage for years and when the owners decided to sell their much loved summer home, we were blessed to buy it for our children. It's still a few years away before they will use it, so we are renting it out so that it will still be enjoyed. One year, we spent Christmas day there as an ongoing tradition and we can't imagine a more perfect setting. What a treat! A wonderful family occasion with a roaring fire, board games, laughs and hot chocolate!

It was great!
We spent a week at this quiet, peaceful, spot in the beautiful log cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed it, in spite of chilly damp weather. The surroundings are beautiful, with view of the lake, the gorgeous pine trees, the wild life... Husband did a lot of fishing off the dock, enjoying sitting there in the peace and quiet, even misty rain did not deter him. We made good use of the outdoor fireplace in the evenings, it is so brilliant to have a covered area like that! Inside we had all the comfort, with comfortable furniture, a gas fireplace, a table for playing cards, and Netflix on the TV. Our daughter and husband loved the variety of birds on the property (they are avid bird watchers), did some kayaking, and hiked in Samuel De Champlain Park, as well as Eau Claire Gorge off road 630. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is lots of information on things to do in the area. It was a great stay, in the summer with good weather and the beach for swimming, it must be awesome. Maybe that’s when we should come back!
The cottage feels the love!
Just what we wanted!
The property was gorgeous! The house is designed in a way that it fits perfectly into the scenery. The architectural details with the stones and logs are beautiful.
We didn't have the best weather but I spent a lot of time sitting in the outdoor pavilion and enjoying the view of the river and the rain. On rainy days we also sat by the fireplace and played games.
The cottage was fully stocked and there was a lot of attention to detail: sandy beach (I've been to many cottages where it's hard to enter the water without shoes) lots of towels, good bedding with lots of pillows, lots of toilet paper, etc. Wonderful welcome gift! Thank you! It's the little things that matter!
This cottage is even more private than we were expecting. Neighbours one one side only but you can hardly see them because of the way the property is designed.
The forest is beautiful and quiet. The price was very reasonable for everything that you get. We will return!

Thank you so much for the beautiful words! We love being able to share the wonder of the lake, the forest and the cottage with you all!
Beautiful Log Cottage
This is a beautiful property, just as listed. Very close to the ATV trails, nice dock on the lake just outside of Mattawa. We will be back :)
Thank you for the lovely review! ATV'ers enjoy the proximity to the trails and the tons of adventures laid out before them in the VMUTS trails.
My girlfriend and I had an amazing stay! It was her first time to Mattawa and I was so happy to make so many new memories with her here! We will for sure be returning next summer. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!
Northern Ontario Gem
I highly recommend this little gem of a cottage if you are looking for a private and relaxing getaway. The cottage is clean and well maintained and offers a beautiful view of Northern Ontario nature at its best.
We are delighted that the cottage and nature hosted you well in this beautiful part of Canada. Hope to see you again and thank you for the lovely review.

Relaxation at Its Best!
Undoubtedly one of the most relaxing cottage experiences I've ever had! Lots of kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming for all and a beautiful view for reading / relaxing by the water. Also one of the quietest lakes I've ever stayed on. The welcome basket was a lovely touch and we were impressed by the well equipped kitchen. Thanks so much Tina and Wayne for your quick responses to questions and making our vacation a great one!
