We had a great time at Lion’s Lookout. It is definitely the nicest cottage we’ve ever spent time in. It’s spacious and beautifully designed. We particularly enjoyed eating in the cedar sun-room and lounging around both fire pits. Note however, that the path from the cottage to the lake is very steep and and not accessible for those with mobility issues. — Tal S. (Aug 2023)


The cottage was really good. House is big, convenient and has air conditioner, which was very useful as we have hot weather. Igor D. (Aug 2022)


Amazing views, well appointed cottage with all the comforts of home! We hosted our annual ice fishing trip up at this cottage and it was amazing. The views from the cottage, especially from the second floor balcony were spectacular! It was incredibly comfortable, the kitchen was very well appointed (and now has a vegetable roasting basket for the BBQ I forgot, haha). It was -33 on Sunday morning when we woke up and being outside listening to the trees contract from the cold was nothing short of amazing. I would highly recommend this cottage for a family/group that is looking to get away from the real world and disconnect. -Ryan (Feb. 2019)


The cottage is brand new and very well equipped from furniture to all the kitchen needs. Wifi is crucial and it’s available, Its absolutely surpassed our expectation. Jack K. (Oct. 2018)


My family had a most enjoyable week at the cottage.  Appreciated all the amenities anyone would want or need. The view of the lake is beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular.  Enjoyed the water activities at the dock,  and even caught some fish. Thanks for a great week. Eli (July 2016)


Lion’s Lookout is an ABSOLUTE gem. The home is something out of a magazine and the water is as clear as it can get. The owner is also super involved in ensuring that his guests have a wonderful time and was kind enough to not only ask for feedback but also follow through with our suggestions and get them done! He actually bought a bigger BBQ and installed Wifi for the cottage. My family and I loved it and have not stopped talking about it since we came back. Thanks Ken! Solmaz A. (June 2016)


We enjoyed your beautiful cottage very much! It was our first time on Jack’s Lake and we fell in love with the area. It was a great weekend and we had a great time. Your neighbours are great, friendly people and we enjoyed meeting them. It was a very comfortable cottage in terms of bedrooms and bathrooms just enough for everyone to sleep comfortably. Shooka (May 2016)
