My family and I had an amazing time. The cottage was absolutely beautiful and so peaceful. The cottage has the best view right beside a lake, I would seriously recommend every family to go there.  – Amir J (Aug/Sep 2021)


We had a great time at this cottage. The lake is excellent, it is shallow, clear, warm water with a soft sandy bottom, ideal for our young child to swim and play in. The cottage itself is small and minimal, but has everything you need including a good internet connection. The back outdoor space is great, there is large covered patio with a very nice picnic bench and patio seating. There is also lots of seating close to the water that is nice, and lots of grassy space to run around on. The waterfront is not a beach. It is a grassy area with a large sand rectangular area within it. The sand is nice for kids to play in, just is not a beach, more like a large sandbox. Access to the water is via a dock, but the water is very shallow for quite a ways out. Sharon was a great host and very easy and pleasant to communicate with. We had a minor issue at the beginning of our stay that Sharon was great about clearing it up for us. The 401 Highway runs right next to the lake. It did not bother us but you can hear it, especially at night. Overall, its a great lakeside cottage, and Sharon has provided everything you need to enjoy it. Would recommend!  -Andrew (July 2021)


We (myself and two young kids) had stayed last year, and had such a nice stay that my kids specifically asked to come back! That was not an issue, I was happy to contact Kawartha Cottage Vacations again. The cottage is cozy-sized, and the bunkie and redecorated backyard were extra special features. We were glad to waste the days away touring about the local attractions or just lounge in the peaceful waters. Neighbours were also lovely. -Pamela (July 2021)
