The cottage was just perfect. Very well maintained and had EVERYTHING you need for very nice stay. The owners really have there guest in mind. The kitchen is very well stocked with appliances and dishes. The outside garden shed has so many items for outdoor activity's such as water toys, bug spry, lawn games, lights. Over all was a AWSOME experience. Thanks so much.

Great property with a great cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I would recommend this property too anyone looking for a relaxing time away. We spent 3 nights here after our wedding and it was perfect. Laura was very helpful and quick to reply to any questions we had and the cottage was prepared perfectly. Every little detail is well thought out on the inside and out. The water was good for swimming and the fishing was excellent. The town of washago which is about 5 minutes away has everything you need from groceries to restaurants. Thanks for having us Laura and we will definitely be booking again!

The property was more than we expected, very clean, comfortable, the yard, pit area and the dock :))

  • 5 of 5

Having found it on line and just relying on pictures and conversations with Laura didn't really know what to expect, mind you everything seemed just fantastic. Upon arrival we were very impressed with everything, so clean fantastic yard and view a little something special from Laura awaiting us for our 26th wedding anniversary:)) Had a great week, cottage is located close enough to many communities, would definitely return and recommend this place!

Everything was extremely tidy and clean inside and out. There we're thoughtful touches such as local information, fishing equipment and lots of outdoor firewood. A very peaceful and enjoyable vacation. Thanks for sharing your lovely property!!

Absolutely stunning!!!!

Just a little sad as the water was high and current fast so couldn't swim (because of so much rainfall in Ontario this year) other than that property was beautiful comfortable and inviting!!!!

Beautiful family cottage in serene, quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

This modern cottage is a family home that has been opened up for visitors to enjoy. It almost felt like a friend's house, complete with all kitchen amenities, big screen tv with stereo and access to the lazy Black River. The dock overhanging the river, the fire pit, the hammock, all within the beautifully-cared for lawn setting, made it one of the most enjoyable solitary weeks I've spent. I wrote seven to nine hours a day writing in various different locations around the property, and spread my research out on the large dining table. By the end of the week, I had clocked about 40,000 words! No disruptions but all the amenities I needed. Laura and Jamie were tremendous hosts, leaving instructions to use their bbq, floating toys, and jacuzzi tub. I encourage anyone to try this place if you're looking for solitude, sophistication, and truly the feeling of being at your own cottage up north.
