Rylott’s Retreat is a private and cozy four-season cottage nestled among the trees on Raccoon Lake, a small land locked lake. Start your day relaxing on the deck with your morning coffee or chill on the lower patio while taking in the view and sounds of nature. Enjoy time by the water on the gently sloped and stunning granite shoreline, sipping a refreshing drink sitting on the spacious dock, or cooling off with a dip in the clear water. Go fishing for bass and muskie with the optional 14’ fishing boat, or a gentle paddle across the clear water in the canoe, pedal boat or stand-up paddle board provided for your enjoyment. For more activity, have a friendly game of horseshoes or bocce ball on the ample grass area.

If weather chases you indoors, head to the games room above the garage and engage in games of shuffleboard, bumper pool or poker, or simply relax watching the big screen TV. Have your meals outdoors on the upper deck that offers sun and natural tree canopy shade throughout the day. Add flavour to your meals with fresh cuttings from the herb garden. End your day soaking in the beautiful sunsets while gathered round either fire pit close by the water or close by the cottage– excellent spots for spending family time under the stars, enjoying a campfire and roasting marshmallows. In colder weather, cozy up in front of the family room or games room fireplace or the main floor wood stove, savouring the relaxing warmth.

Rylott’s Retreat was, most certainly, a retreat! We didn’t want for anything our entire stay. Odd items we realized we had forgotten, like a meat thermometer, could be found. The cottage was filled with thoughtful touches, games, books and everything you could ever need on a cottage getaway. The kitchen was almost better equipped than my own at home! The owners were so friendly and gracious. 10/10 !! Briana K. (Oct. 2020)


This was our second stay at Rylott’s Retreat, it is a three generation annual family event and Rylott’s cottage is perfect for all ages, the lake is quiet and good for swimming or fishing, the cottage is very nice and has all the amenities our family needs. —Dan D. (Sept 2020)


The owners were helpful, present and check in and check out, answered questions before our stay and were lovely people. The lake is quiet and small and just perfect for what we wanted. The cottage had everything we needed and then some. Books, games, space for all, water activities and more. The cottage was clean, comfortable and private. We couldn’t have asked for more. —Jennifer and Gordon R (Aug. 2020)


We were lucky to find this cottage amongst all the others. Great location as it’s a well-appointed beachfront cottage on a quiet lake. Water toys for young and old with a great dock and multiple fire pits. The cottage has all the amenities and more including a separate building that is a game room equipped with its own poker table, shuffleboard, tv, wifi and more. Awesome summer retreat for the family and we would absolutely vacation here again. —Michael S. (June 2020)


Three generations family vacation……everything was great.Dan D. (Sep. 2019)


Not too modern. Not too rustic. The deco and environment are perfect! —Francis C (Aug. 2018)


Beautiful cottage, comfortable and very well maintained. I would recommend anytime. —Dereck (Oct. 2018)
