Lovely cottage, well stocked, spacious bedrooms comfortable beds, very clean, great yard leading down to the water, children friendly water front, owners were very accommodating to making our stay very relaxing and enjoyable. Looking forward to next year! —Sherry G. (Jul 2023)

This is our 3rd year at Chandos. It is our preferred spot. Cottage is large, well kept and grounds and lake front are a joy. Beautiful views. Home away from home. Thank you Rob and Krista! —Lucy (Jun 2023)

Just a note of appreciation for your help with our Easter cottage rental. Robert and Krista were incredibly nice to deal with and we absolutely loved our stay at their cottage. We hope to be back again. Thank you for such a good experience! —Jill (April 2022)

Our week stay at Chandos was nothing less than amazing. Everything about this place is perfect. We had 10 adults and 4 children (10 down to 6). Watching the childrens’ and adults’ joy in playing in the water, off the raft, off the docks and boating was balm to our souls after the year and a half we have had with restrictions with covid. The cottage is fully equipped, furniture well looked after, comfy. We absolutely loved having queen/king beds for all couples and double beds for the rest. We had room for everyone, entertainment room for the kids (away from the adults on the first floor), kitchen, deck and dock. This cottage property is safe for children which is the first thing looked for when we search for a vacation cottage. The owners were very responsive to my questions and were really great to deal with. All of us would rent this cottage again. —Donna F (Aug 2021)

A beautiful cottage; clean, well equipped, excellent waterfront, a beautiful sunset, nice dead-end street and easy to find. —Sheryl D. (Dec. 2020)

Cottage was fantastic, the owners have taken great care and everything was taken care of, the appliances were new including a wine cooler, the sunset views over the lake were awesome, we were lucky to catch the full moon set too, finally the kids had a blast downstairs and figured out how to play the VHS!!  The fall colours were picturesque just a short stroll away. – Chetan V. (Oct. 2019)

We had a great stay at Chandos Serenity. The cottage exceeded our expectations. It was large, modern, and had all the amenities that we could want. There was easy entry to the water, and we went swimming every day for the week we were there. The oldest person in our group was 77 and the youngest was almost two. Neither had any issues navigating the property or the house. The hosts were extremely accommodating and adapted to our last-minute complications with grace. I hope to book this cottage again!  Also, Kawartha Cottage Vacations really went above and beyond to help make the booking work out. Due to complications on my end the booking wasn’t properly processed until the last minute. Kawartha Cottage Vacations was very high-touch, and spoke with me on the phone a couple times a day to ensure that everything was smooth. I will definitely be recommending them to my friends! —Gabriel M. (Aug. 2019).

Beautiful 6 bedroom very clean cottage. Perfect for family and friends getaway.  Great sandy beach for young children. Lots of privacy from neighbours.  Great lake for the boater. Fishing was good with lots of pike and bass.  Even the kids were catching fish off the dock.  Last but not least the cottage owners and rental agency were great to deal with! – Peter D. (Aug. 2019)

Fantastic cottage for a family get away. Shallow sand bottom shore with steps make this perfect for young and old. Lots of water toys to keep everyone occupied and exploring the lake around them. Quite private yet not too far from Apsley which has everything you could need during your stay. —Sean B. (Aug. 2019)

Highly recommended place, everything was just perfect. Thank you very much, we really enjoyed the place. —Hatem M. (June 2019)
