  • My family and I recently spent a week at Sheila's cottage and had a wonderful time!. Her cottage is incredibly well stocked, and Sheila is very gracious in sharing of many items that really helped to make our cottage experience complete. Communication with Sheila was a complete pleasure - very responsive, clear, and complete. Her cottage is very clean, cosy, and literally steps away from the lake. We would stay there again in a heatbeat, thanks again Sheila!!

  • We had a lovely stay at Sheila's cottage. There was everything we could have needed and more. The lake is just perfect for canoeing.

  • Sheila was right at the cottage to meet us upon arrival. She took the time to show us all the ins and outs of the cottage and gave us some tips about the surrounding area. Since we were celebrating our honeymoon, she left a bottle of champagne in fridge for us! The cottage was in a beautiful setting with cottages in close proximity on either side, but with the foliage, you really felt secluded. Absolutely beautiful.

    lisa2015-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely few days relaxing at Sheila's cute cottage. The location is ideal, the cottage is well stocked with everything we needed and Sheila was fantastic letting us check in early and providing yummy cakes! We'd love to come back to this beautiful part of the world sometime!

  • Sheila was a very generous host. We had no problems during our stay, and the cottage was clean and sunny, with a surprisingly good shower. Lots of wildlife-- we spotted a fox and a very curious large turtle. The only thing I could have wished for was a more isolated location, as this cottage is near the highway. It's not loud at all, but it doesn't have the feeling of a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Someone else might find it convenient and perfect. Other than that, no complaints. I recommend this cottage and Sheila.

    Shauna 2013-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sheila is a wonderful host! We arrived at the cottage on Friday evening and she arrived shortly after to greet us and show us around. We also left a nice note and cinnamon buns from Don's Bakery in Bala, such a warm welcome. The property was as advertised and met/exceeded our expectations. The cottage is extremely well stocked and had everything you need for a pleasant stay. It was clean and organized, cozy and comfortable! The lake was great for swimming and the dock was the perfect place to lay out. Sheila's cottage was the perfect place to relax and recharge. Can't wait to return.

    Ashley2016-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Glorious little cottage on a breathtaking lake -- had everything one would need. I was initially a little nervous because it was closer to a main road than I expected, but after stepping out back onto the dock on the lake the whoosh of cars absolutely receded. Sheila was a very responsive and helpful host who patiently answered any questions and thoroughly explained the place. And the location, in the heart of cottage country, was just gorgeous. Thanks again Sheila!

    Cara2013-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sheila was very easy to work with, we communicated via email and spoke on the phone and she ensured I was fully prepped on the ins and outs of the cottage before we arrived. (which was a day late, so thanks for your flexibility Sheila!) Inside: The cottage is exactly as depicted in the photos and has everything needed for a chilled and relaxed break. In fact I was surprised how big and roomy the bedrooms were. Sheila provided multiple clean towels and flannels and the place was spotless. We really just moved right in. The view from the dining table and lounge area out over the lake is second to none, we watched some incredible storms across the water at night. Breathtaking. Sheila has kindly stocked the cottage with puzzles, books and games, which were really quite useful as our Rogers cell-phone signal wasn't too strong, which meant checking work-emails was sporadic - for some (like me) this was great escapism - for others, this may be a challenge. The lake itself is shallow entry, but gets deep pretty quickly, so no jumping off the dock into the water - which would've been a benefit as the weather was scorching. The water its totally swimmable and cool and refreshing. The lake is quiet and beautiful, no hooligans zooming around on jet-skis which was a BIG PLUS. We spent hours in the clear water floating around on the noodles that Sheila left at the cottage and playing make-shift water-volleyball. We used the fire pit and BBQ that are at the cottage when weather permitted and my favourite spot was reading a book whilst laying the large hammock that Sheila has fixed in the outside area. Simple pleasures! The one drawback was the hum of traffic from the main road. This may have been because there was a WakeFest festival on in Bala whilst we stayed, it wasn't overbearing but something to consider. I would imagine during normal weeks it is much quieter. Surrounding area: Many other guests have commented on Don's bakery - which, was outstanding but there is also a little cafe/convenience store about 200 yards walk from the cottage which was handy, try taking home their delicious home made Bumbleberry pie, packed with fruit and provided a delicious dessert for a few nights. When it rained for the last couple of days we easily jumped in the car and drove to Port Carling and Huntsville to poke around the shops and catch a movie. Overall, we had a fantastic break. Sheila really takes pride in her cottage and I genuinely felt that she *wanted* us to have a great stay. I would absolutely recommend Sheila's cottage (and have done) to others. Thanks Sheila!

  • Wonderful hosts and a great place for a cozy nature retreat right next to the lake. We were welcomed by a warm bonfire and enjoyed sitting outside with hot chocolate. Loved the thoughtful touches around the house like indoor slippers extra tooth brushes and super comfy beds. Would definitely go back there soon!!

    Muskoka has been named as one of the best summer vacations over and over by National Geographic,and the reasons why are so obvious.The crystal clear water and breath taking scenery are unmatched. This little gem on Acton island (road access) is the perfect getaway for family and friends to go and enjoy a few nights, a week or even a summer. It's a nice mix of cottage country with all amenities of home. Spend your day on the dock/water and then come in and enjoy a good movie or some family games.
    This is our family cottage that we are looking for other people to have their own great experiences in as well. There is lots of space inside and out. If you love the outdoors there is plenty to enjoy. There is room for two boats at the dock and you are more than welcome to bring whatever water toys up as well. It is a shallow sandy bottom for people with small children or if you are just looking to wade in the water on a sunny day. Cannonballs to splash grandma are always fun off the end of the dock. If you are looking for some down time, there are big screen TVs throughout the house. You can cozy up next to the fire and watch a RomCom with a warm cup of Coco or cheer on your favourite sports team in the games room while playing some ping pong. If you love a good hottub at night, what better way to be doing it than under the beautiful Muskoka stars.
    Acton Island is located in beautiful Lake Muskoka near the towns of Port Carling and Bala, Ontario. The island has road access from the mainland by way of the Gordon Sinclair bridge and is home to over 300 cottages and full time residences.
  • Amazing stay. Would come back in a heartbeat. Quiet and beautiful. Not far from town.

    Jeff2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to stay at the lake!

    Chris2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a great spot for a family cottage weekend! Incredible lakefront property, unforgettable view, total serenity, and a very nice, comfortable cottage with lots of space and all the amenities. Really nicely decorated house, had absolutely everything we needed. Also had a big propane bbq, a brand new hot tub overlooking the lake, a new canoe and paddles, a waterfront bonfire pit surrounded by muskoka chairs, and a great dock. Very shallow, clear water, perfect for kids to play or to just sit in and relax. We had a really great stay at this cottage, and would definitely go back.

  • Matthew and Chad we're wonderful at getting back to us very quickly. Their home is incredibly beautiful and it had everything any group could need for a comfortable stay. We had an amazing time! I would highly recommend this to friends and family. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! Cheers!

    Cindy2018-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, swimming is great and perfect for young children. Cottage has lots of room for everyone and the ping pong is lots of fun!

    Chris2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome cottage! Lake Muskoka is beautiful. Cottage had lots of space for our family (9 adults and 2 kids). Located in a somewhat secluded bay so the kids could paddle around the bay by themselves. Dining room overlooks the lake with a great big table, appliances were modern, hot tub was a plus. Easy drive to Port Carling and Bala (places to eat and shops). If you are bringing a boat there are launches close by in Bala. Matthew was great at answering any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again!

    Dave2017-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cottage set up was amazing for a large family. Kids had their own lower level wing with ping pong table, tv, couches, fridge and games table. Also lower level bedroom has two sets of double bunk beds which meant the kids could all stay together. Cottage was sunny bright, clean and well-equipped. It was even air conditioned if it got too hot. There was a beautiful view of the waterfront from almost every room. Cottage is on a quiet bay which was great to take the canoe out into. It also had a sandy entry for small children. Matt was an amazing host, helpful, and attentive. He answered any question we have quickly. He even took a look at my dog's sore leg as he happens to be a vet!

    connie2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, spacious property on a private stretch of waterfront. Exactly like the pictures. The lake was gorgeous and so calm - perfect for swimming or relaxing on the dock. The dining room has a huge floor to ceiling window so you can still enjoy the scenery when inside playing games. That view of the lake is just stunning. Matthew was a great host and was always available if we had any questions. Very well equipped cottage. Will definitely stay again in the future.

The place itself was quite nice with a lot of things to do both outside and inside (we had loads of fun with the foosball table). All in all, it was a great trip made even better by the place and host.

  • Mitch is a great guy with an awesome cottage (although it's really more of a house). Close to town - a 2 minute walk to anything you need, but also private enough to feel like you're away from the main drag. I'd definitely go back someday - if only to play Bobby Orr pinball. I had a great time up there. Thanks Mitch.

    Sean2016-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Bala is an adorable town and this was within walking distance of it all!! Mitch was very accommodating and available any time we had questions; our boys loved all the games and movies and outdoor gear - perfect for a family or anyone active!! The perfect getaway.

  • Hi Kevin, On behalf of our friends, we would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay at your awesome residence. We had a really enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend. The place is very spacious for group party plus lots of things for entertainment. We especially enjoyed your billiards and the poker set. We had great fun with your kayak and took a lot of beautiful photos on your boathouse. The back view of your house by the lake was splendid with beautiful color changing leaves when we arrived. Again, thank you for your hospitality and we would very much look forward to coming back to your place in the future. Regards, Tai

    Tai2015-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • My family and our friends had a wonderful time at the cottage. Kevin was very kind that he allowed us to come early and leave late. Everything was cleaned when we arrived and so we left the place neat and clean too. My brother-in-law enjoyed playing pool while others had a great time singing as we brought our own magic sing. The view across the lake was perfect as we can see different colors of the leaves. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. We are definitely coming back...

    Frances2015-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin is one of the best and most welcoming host ever. His accommodations exceeded our expectations. From the beginning his replies were very prompt and accurate. The cottage and the area looks way better than the pictures. It was very peaceful and calming. If you like Canoeing, you should check out the lake, its calming with amazing views. You would find everything you need in a cottage and even more. Kevin left us a welcome note along with instructions of what we could do in the area which was very helpful. He was very patient with us. We asked many questions before coming to the cottage and while we were at the cottage. Kevin was always available and answered all our questions right away. We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone. We would definitely come back again.

    Nabil2015-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed here for 2 nights with colleagues for a work retreat. We had a great time, and were able to work while there using the cottage wifi. Pretty much everything we needed was at the cottage. There were ample towels, linens and pillows for everyone, and the kitchen is stocked with all the dishes and cutlery you could need. Kevin came by to meet us when we arrived and even cut up some fire wood for us, which was super appreciated. We really enjoyed use of the seating out on the boat house, and the speaker set up indoors. The water was still pretty cold, but we were able to swim. The waterway is pretty narrow, and some of us were able to swim across and back. We later noticed there were quite a few boats ripping by, so just be aware if you're swimming in the middle of area. We had to run into Bala for a few things on our second day, but it's super close so you could even walk there if you were inclined. Note that you'll pay a premium for groceries at the market there. The bugs are pretty intense right now in Muskoka, so if you're making a trip soon, make sure you bring lots of bug spray with you!

    Kirsten2017-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin is a great host. Welcomed us and spent time to help us get oriented in the area with things to do. The house if very spacious. Nice open plan kitchen with views on the lake. There is a pool table downstairs, a canoe and a kayak. Nice bonuses that we enjoyed throughout our stay. Also the sundeck out back. Bala is lovely as is the area. Lots to discover and not too far from Toronto.

  • Kevin was great host he greeted us giving us the lay of the land. He was friendly courteous. The house was perfect for our group mostly a family gathering across three generations it had everything you could want. A pool table, water inflatables, a large sun deck and a primary outdoor eating and BBQ area. We will definitely be back.

    monica2017-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin was a great host, flexible and accommodating. We loved all the extra space in the house for everyone to sleep comfortably. There is no A.C. so extra fans would be good to have. There are a lot of stairs so definitely not ideal for seniors.

  • We really enjoyed staying at this property especially when the weather improved towards the end of our week stay. We travelled to the property with grandparents, one is not so mobile so the ground floor bedroom and ensuite was ideal for them. Also most of the steps on the property have sturdy handrails. The property has a large living room with fireplace which was ideal when the weather was wet and cool at the start of our stay. Even with six of us in the house were had plenty of space. On these day we appreciated the great selection of family favourite board games, Scrabble, Monopoly etc. We were not meant to meet the host but James was putting the finishing touches to the setup as we arrived so we had an opportunity to meet and run through the basics. There really was nothing to worry about. We appreciated the welcoming bottle of wine which we enjoyed soon after our arrival. It is easy to top up on provisions in Bala, the LCBO for wine & beer is just down the road. It is not necessary to use a car to go into the village. We were able to rent a canoe in the town and paddle back. There is only one think to note that others might not enjoy at ths property if they are light sleepers and that is the rumbling of trains going by on the tracks that go throgh Bala on the Trans Canada line. For us this was not a big deal, part of the Canadian experience. We will be booking again if we need to stay in this area again in the future.

We ate all our meals in, the oven accommodated our thanksgiving turkey and vegetables and cooked it beautifully. Lovely new bathrooms. Fire pit for s’mores too!

  • Beautiful Lake home and setting. Perfect for 2 families! Close to town which is very convenient .... also near train tracks-however we didn't see the train as being an issue. Close to boat rental, SUP rental etc (as no water 'toys' were provided). Very clean, well-stocked and new cottage interior design. Would absolutely recccomend and we hope to return one day.

    Tina2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! We had an amazing weekend. The house looks new and inviting. We felt in home in seconds. The host left notes in everywhere, so every question crossed our mind solved without the need to contact him

  • We had a wonderful stay despite the weather. Ross accommodated our late check in and a late check out, which we really appreciated. The cottage had wifi, kitchen was well stocked, we made use of the fire pit at night, and watched Netflix on the rainy days. Thank you for hosting.

    Old style cottage with 4 bedrooms. All bright and newly renovated kitchen and bath. The front porch is a large screened in area with second dining table and chairs. Picturesque and swimming in the Moon River is wonderful. Fishing, snorkeling, canoeing, water skiing... A short walk to town featuring restaurants, stores, bakeries, ice cream shops, and the Bala Falls. Please bring your own linens.
    Beautiful property with a great swimming and you can see sun rise and sunset over the river. Barbeque is included. Happy blend of old time summer cottage with new bathroom and kitchen. Wood stove in case it gets chilly at night.
  • Great cottage, close to restaurants and the Kee. Definitely recommend for a family get away.

  • Spacious and clean cottage. Some cottages are lake front and some are close to the water but behind the other cottages. Really nice property and Sarah was very accommodating. My friends and I were pleased. There was a TV in our cottage although the description said there wasn't. So if you have this cottage you could bring an HDMI cable to hook up your laptop.

  • My stay in Cottage Pine was a nice getaway for the weekend. The cottage itself is one that has been renovated so it's a little more modern then some of the others. It was a super hot weekend so I was a little disappointed that there were no fans in the place. I also didn't realize that there was no housekeeping and the place gets cleaned by whoever was there last. I found toys left from the previous guests, pine needles on the mattresses, kids fingerprints all over the patio glass doors but for someone who just left it wasn't to bad at all. I was just surprised to see it wasn't done by the owner or a housekeeper. I always clean up after myself when I stay somewhere but it was at this point I realized I was going to be the one to clean the place before leaving. All in all, the cottage was nice, It was fully equipped with kitchen supplies and Sarah was great at coming to greet me upon arrival. I would recommend this place to others just know it is a little more rustic than other places I have stayed. A nice place for a weekend getaway!

  • Sarah is a great host, she gave us all the information upfront and also she was very helpful during our stay in finding everything we were looking for! The cottage was a dream place with almost all the facilities, also they had canoes which we could use for free! The cottage was facing lake side and we could thoroughly enjoy the sunset from the cottage and it was a blissful experience! It was perfect place to relax and enjoy the private little beach! If the water temp is right we could even swim. Further, the cottage is located in such a vintage point that we could reach different trials and beautiful landscapes around Muskoka! We definitely recommend others to enjoy this serene experience :)

Bala is a really nice small town with an excellent place to have breakfast (lakeside Bala). There are lots of places to go hiking and enjoy the great outdoors. Sarah was very kind and offered quick suggestions of places to check out in the area. We will gladly come back again!

I want to say I highly recommend this place but I want to make sure there's availability for next summer ;)

  • The cottage was exactly as advertised - beautiful, scenic and clean. Jane and the property manager we're excellent communicators. I highly recommend thisplace!

  • Jane's place had everything we needed for the our escape to the Lakeside. With 8 people, we easilly cooked in the kitchen, sat together for dinner, and enjoyed board games on the massive deck. The beds are comfortable, and the cottage in general is clean and welcoming.

  • Jane quickly responded to any questions and put myself at ease before booking. Upon arrival, I was greeted by her friendly property manager who showed us around the beautiful lot. The cottage is in immaculate condition and extremely spacious; comfortably sleeping our group of 8. A wrap about deck adds additional living space for dining or sitting and relaxing while overlooking Bala Bay. The screened gazebo is an extra bonus - protecting you from bugs during the evening. The deck and cottage are lined by mature trees which provide privacy from the neighbours. Overall, the cottage and our experience was fantastic. If you intend to stay in the Muskoka's I highly recommend dealing with Jane to enjoy her Lakeridge cottage. You will not be disappointed.

    Rylend2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Jane was a fantastic host and her cottage accommodated our group wonderfully. She responded quickly to all inquiries and the entire booking experience was very positive. The cottage is a great getaway and has more than enough room for everyone. The cottage comes equipped with most necessities but we brought additional toiletries and cleaning supplies. The wrap-around deck overlooking the lake was a highlight for us. The dock also has good swimming. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Laurie2014-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • We were met by our manager host Kim as soon as pulled into the parking area. She gave us a wonderful tour of the property and its generous facilities. The wrap-around deck provided awesome views of Lake Muskoka. 75 % of our time was spent between the deck and the boathouse dock. There was ample space in the boathouse for our 18' boat. The outdoor shower was a treat. Tons of parking space. The cottage was well equipped and even came with a back-up generator (required after the Muskoka area got hammered by a severe thunderstorm). I swore I wouldn't want/need a dishwasher but it was a real nice to have. Overall a great vacation with requests by my family to book again next year.

    Douglas2016-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lakeridge exceeded all of our expectations, and provided us with undoubtedly the most enjoyable cottage rental we have had in over ten years. We contacted Jane to arrange a short family vacation of five (plus dogs), and she immediately responded to our request. She was friendly, helpful and responsive as we finished getting our vacation ready - as was Jane's fantastic property manager during the course of our stay. When we finally arrived at Lakeridge, we were very pleasantly surprised - even the beautiful photos do not do this stunning property justice. The interior of Lakeridge is very spacious and well-equipped, yet it retains a distinctly relaxing cottage feel, particularly because of the wall of lake-facing windows - we found ourselves having to stop throughout the trip to admire the beauty of the landscape! The wrap-around balcony provided plenty of quiet space for games and reading, and the very short walk down to the private dock meant that we could share beautiful views of the sunset each day. The outdoor shower was a surprising treat: taking a hot shower while staring at the stars is a unique and enjoyable experience! A quick 15-minute drive had us equipped with kayaks and jet-skis from a local spot (though it was hard to bring ourselves to leave Lakeridge long enough to adventure elsewhere). Lakeridge's location and setup was perfect given that we intended to spend most of our time enjoying the outdoors, but it was also sufficiently spacious inside so that we didn't feel "cooped up" when it rained. It was, in short, perfect for us, and Jane was a fantastic host.

    Dave2016-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • I hosted my mother's surprise birthday getaway weekend here and we had a blast! We rented a pontoon boat from the Marina right down the road and watched some beautiful sunsets. It was clean and there were fans in every room and the beds were comfortable. Jane was lovely and very accommodating. Can't wait to go back!

  • Sarah was a great host and her cottage was absolutely wonderful. The cottage is completely self-contained, freshly renovated, and her stock of kitchenware was perfect for cooking. My spouse and I will definitely book again in the future. Very happy with the whole experience!

  • Lovely recently renovated lakeside cottage. There's a great deck with a bbq overlooking the lake - perfect for watching the sunset with a beer. Cosy fire, comfy sofa, board games, great view and a canoe - everything you need. We'll definitely be back for another trip!

  • We definitely have a case of the post-vacation blues after staying at Sarah's cottage. Sarah was a wonderful host; her attention to detail is amazing as we had everything we needed at the cottage. It was cozy but spacious with an awesome wood burning stove that we quite enjoyed. The deck outside was perfect for taking in the fresh air and lake view. It felt like home and we didn't want to leave. I definitely recommend staying at the Beach House. We can't wait to come back!

    Milena2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing spot for a vacation. Adorable little towns nearby. Lots of wildlife in the area, saw two beavers and a deer. The cabin itself is beautifully done and the wood stove was definitely a highlight. Would definitely stay here again. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. The driveway got a little washed out with the thawing of the snow and was immediately outside to help put gravel down. She was also very helpful when my dog rolled in something nasty and needed a hose hooked up to clean her. Sarah made sure it was warm water. Overall, great trip, awesome host

  • A prefect getaway. Can't say enough about how cozy Sarah's place is. A fantastic view of the lake and even more amazing at sunset. Highly recommended!

    Jamie2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is exactly like the pictures and the beach is closer than you might think. its wonderful sand and breath taking views, the fog in the cool morning air followed by warm sunny days ending with the moon's light glinting off the lake. Sarah was more than accommodating with fire wood and even brought us a fire pit just for us. 100% we will be returning.

The beach was clean, with chairs and tons of water toys. It was stress free with it being so dog friendly too. Loved it loved it. I would love to return annually, for sure! Thank you Sarah.

  • We had a great stay at Sarah's cabin. It is situated on a small lake with a sandy beach, a short drive away from Bala. There are two canoes and two paddle boards available for use. The area is shared with other cabins, so expect to share the common areas with other visitors. There is a BBQ with propane tanks for purchase and a fully equipped kitchen. Sarah was really nice and accommodating, she was responsive to questions and allowed us to stay a bit extra to take advantage of the beautiful weather. Recommended!

  • This cottage will always be special to me because I got engaged here during my stay. It's truly a gem. Right on the lake, clean, spacious. Sarah was incredible too and so accommodating. I spent an entire morning on the deck, reading, drinking coffee and overlooking the water. Also, my fiancee and I took a drive around the Muskoka area later and took in the beautiful area. Also, gotta have coffee at Oliver's! Would recommend and can't wait to return!

    Our homey comfortable three bedroom cottage with a two tiered deck has a true Cottage experience. It comfortably fits 6, and is located on Long Lake only a 10 minute walk into the heart of Bala. Our home is your HOME!!
    Halli's Cottage has three bedrooms, and will comfortably fit 6 guests, with 2000sq feet of open space. Our home is fully equipped including 1 King, 1 Queen & 2 single beds. Each bedroom is self sufficient with storage, lighting, and window coverings. Halli's cottage includes unlimited wireless internet, BBQ, hammock, canoe, stand up paddle board, & boat launch near by. Our lake front is a shallow entrance with a sandy bottom, at the end of the dock you can jump or dive into deeper waters. Our Space is also equipped for winter use, a paved driveway along with gas heating. Our home is close to several trails for Sledding, snowshoeing, and I hear our ice fishing is dynamite. We will be excepting monthly rentals if needed. Check in and check out are adjustable based on request.
  • Halli's Cottage was amazing and Ciara was a fantastic host. She got the cottage ready for my family in just a few hours after the previous group had left and we found it in immaculate condition. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Everything you could ask for in cottage country. It was nice to relax out on the deck and soak in the sun while enjoying some barbecue.

    Evans2016-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our time at Ciara's cottage. Cottage was located in a good spot close to town but tucked away with no neighbours in sight. Great deck overlooking the lake where we spent most of our time. Inside was well maintained, open concept upstairs and beds were very comfortable. Liked that it was pet friendly with deck gated off. It was nice not having to worry about long leads for our dogs. BBQ worked well and had a full tank of propane that lasted us the entire week. Essentials were provided including towels, linens, and kitchen basics. Water was warm and great for swimming. Took advantage of the paddle board most days. Overall an amazing week. We would love to go back next year!

    Angela2017-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, well stocked and functioning kitchen with terrific eating area. A key disappointment was that a very large motorcycle was being stored in the family room, blocking full family use of the fireplace - we therefore spent most of our time in the kitchen sitting area. A fireplace was a key feature we were looking for in selecting a cottage - make sure to confirm the motorcycle will not be there if you want this feature.

    Carla2016-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ciara was very easy going and accessible to any of our inquiries. We were so appreciative that we could bring our dog as well. The cottage is very cute and comfortable. It has a lot of natural light and beautiful views of the lake. While it is very close to town, it's tucked away and is quiet - you don't hear much noise from the highway.

    Elizabeth2016-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a very enjoyable, relaxing getaway at Ciara's beautiful cottage. The place was very spacious and could easily have accommodated a larger group of people. We loved that this was a dog-friendly listing as it was our dog's first visit to the Muskokas - she loved the water! The cottage conveniently had fresh towels, linens, pantry staples, toiletries, a SUP and a canoe - and we were even welcomed with a bottle of wine! It's also just a few steps away from some nearby stores, though we chose to bring our own groceries with us to cook our meals.

    Sophie2016-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is in a very nice location and the view is beautiful. We loved the two decks with plenty of chairs and the house was spacious, even with 5 adults. Communication with the host was good and very easy.

  • we really enjoyed our family vacation at Ciara's. The cottage is very spacious, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen was a nice surprise - very well stocked, had everything we could possible need. It's located on A quiet lake, but close to the main Hwy that goes thru town. We all used the canoe and paddle board and spent most of the time in the water. Ciara was very helpful and checked in on us to make sure everything was going well.

  • Eugenia's place was in a great location, easy to access and on a beautiful lake front with lovely views. It was spacious and accommodated 12 people easily. We feel this place is definitely ideal for those looking for a comfy but not luxurious stay. The images portray something far nicer and cleaning than the cottage itself. We were also required to take out the trash, but with no compost or green bin available the food waste became unpleasant to have to put in our cars and drive to find a garbage transfer station. Also, we were not provided with enough toilet paper or hand towels for the weekend. A last note would be the clearly unsafe makeshift chicken wire railing from the loft overlooking the living room and kitchen. Probably not ideal for young kids or drunken adults. All in all it was a great value in a beautiful location near Gravenhurst and Port Carling.

    Original structure is over 100 years old, this newly renovated 3 bedroom cottage sits on Torrance Bay, just 1.5 hours north of Toronto. Only 5 minutes to amenities in Bala. Torrance is home to the Torrance Barrens Dark Sky Preserve, a spectacular view of the night sky. For the train lovers the CN railroad passes close by. The deck is steps from the water's edge and offers a beautiful view of the lake including breathtaking sunsets. Shallow water entry for children.
    This property has never been "sold," having been part of a larger "Homesteader's Track" made available by "The passages of the Free Grants and Homestead Act of 1868" which opened the era of widespread settlement. Settlers could receive free land if they agreed to clear the land, have at least 15 acres under cultivation, and build a 16 by 20-foot house. Settlers under the Homestead Act, however, found the going hard. Clearing 15 acres of dense forest is a huge task. Once the land was clear, the settlers had to attack Muskoka's ubiquitous rocks, which also had to be cleared. Consisting largely of a dense clay, the soil in the region turned out to be poorly suited to farming. This property has been been passed down through the family for generations since the late 1800's and is a piece of Muskoka's heritage.

  • Driving through Muskoka on my birthday (a Saturday), we didn't think we would have any luck finding a place to stay on the same day. We were wrong! Not only did we find this beautiful Torrance gem, but we were welcomed with open arms despite our last minute reservation. Katelynn informed us that it was her mom's house and that she would be expecting us. We showed up in the early evening and Michelle (her mom) was nothing but lovely and accommodating to us and our needs. After a great night's sleep, we woke up to an awesome breakfast spread and had a chance to tour the beautiful property in daylight. Michelle was very gracious and recommended some places for us to visit during our travels. Highly recommend the Torrance Barrens! It's a short drive from the house. I was amazed to learn that Michelle and Katelynn had only run their Airbnb for about a week. They were pros and seemed like seasoned hosts already. The only minor issue we had was the cracks in the doors, making it seem slightly less private, but we were assured that they were being fixed the same day we left! :) We will definitely return! Thanks again for a great night and an unforgettable birthday.

The area is beautiful, surrounded by nature. The host treated us to a variety of breakfast options which meant if there was something you didn't like, you could just pick something else. The coffee was great - french press!

Breakfast was just great. she brought us her homemade strawberry and peach jam, coffee, fruits... The only minor issue we had that night was low water pressure so we were not able to take shower. But she was going to fix that the day after. Everything else was just perfect! We will definitely come back.

  • Great host and great cottage to stay at with a lake behind it

  • This place is amazing for kids and adults alike. Great shallow sandy beach and playground. It has a wonderful selection of watercraft and life jackets for all ages. Bala is super close and a lovely little town. The house is very well laid out with huge windows for the amazing view. Kitchen is cost but very well equipped. I hope to stay here again!

  • This place was very far from Toronto and could be slightly cleaner compared to other Airbnb that we got. There were many ants in the unit and I guess Ken should pay more attention to make it more Airbnb-friendly.

  • Awesome place and location

    Jeffrey2016-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place was awesome! Such a great, quiet location close to town. Ken was a fantastic host - the place was stocked with waters and toiletries etc. when we arrived. Super easy and convenient as well as a great atmosphere.

  • This cottage was in amazing location. Easy access off the highway. We never got to meet the owner, but he was always reachable. He even hooked us up with a blender prior to our arrival. It was fully stocked with everything even toothpaste and female products. Fans in the bedroom were a huge plus.

  • i loved staying in ken's place. best thing about it: the view the view the view, the quiet, and the fireplace/stove. mostly the constant sound of lake muskoka lapping at the land.

    Beautiful Cottage, Located on Lake Muskoka in Bala Bay - Stainless Appliances, Great (rare) Muskoka beach. Shallow sandy bottom great for swimming and kids. Great dock for sun tanning and large deck for those family dinners. , Amazing sunsets & long lake island dotted views. 6 KMs outside of Bala! Wonderful turn key home on the lake. Perfect for families! ** See last pic the train runs behind the cottage ** its loud when it passes but most get used to it! an easy sacrifice for lake life :)
  • Mark's place was amazing, we had a great stay. Would recommend to anyone.

    Troy2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Marc is a great host and this was a great cottage with an amazing beach for small kids. The cottage has great views and spectacular sunsets. Would stay again!! The cottage was equipped with everything we have in our home. It is close to train tracks and does require some adjusting time , We knew this from the add and our interactions with Marc.

    John2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was exactly as described right down to the trains! We LOVED that aspect. Beautiful sunsets every night! Great swimming and canoeing on a quiet bay. Close to town. It had everything you need to enjoy cottaging in Ontario.

    Our place is close to Bala and Port Carling. You’ll love it! It's a big, one room, family cabin on a 6 acre forested property with a 40 sec. walk to our 1100 ft of shoreline on pristine Medora lake, with dock, canoe, great swimming and fishing. This place is good for couples or a family (with kids). A true Muskoka experience. The friendly and quiet owners who live next door have loved this incredible private property for 25 years and will ensure you have all the comforts you need.
  • Jeff and Maja the hosts were fantastic, so helpful and caring. The place is wonderful and has everything one needs for a stay in a cabin on the lake. The lake is quite and calm for swimming and paddling. Would stay again for sure - only longer next time.

    Kerry2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • The property is quiet and private. Jeff and Maja gave us lots of space and privacy even though the homes are fairly close together. The best part is that the lake is BEAUTIFUL. The bottom seemed to me to be a big rock so there was no seaweed. And because it's small there was only one or two motorboats that we saw the whole week. It's really nice to see the sunrise in the morning as in comes up on the other side of the lake directly across from the dock. Really loved this place and hope to go back to see it during other seasons as well.

  • Me, my friend and my two children had a blast! Stayed for 5 days and everything was perfect for a relaxing getaway with family.

    Nicollette2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a great weekend at Jeff's place. Spent a lot of time at the beautiful Medora lake where is just 2 minutes away from Cabin. Cabin itself was a clean cozy space with everything organized and thought through. We had complete privacy, & knowing that Jeff and Maja are just next door ,if we need anything, made us feel safe and more commutable I guess. Can't wait for our next visit !!

  • Booked a weekend at Jeff and Maja's cottage and it was exactly as described! Jeff and Maja are so sweet and welcomed us warmly as we arrived. Beautiful, clean, well-stocked cabin in the woods. The cabin is about a 30 second walk to the most beautiful little lake. We enjoyed using the canoe and BBQ and swinging chair by the lake. The cottage is super close to Johnstons Cranberry Marsh and we enjoyed a full day of fun there from wagon rides, to wine tasting and even walking in hip-waders in a bog of cranberries! There are a lot of things to see and do in the town of Bala! And even though the cabin is right beside their house, we had tons of privacy and we were able to explore the property on our own. Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing trip out of the city with a lot of local attractions!

  • Jeff and Maja’s place was exactly as advertised. It was cute, clean and private on 5 acres of woods near the water. We will definitely be back!

    Melissa Slatkoff2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage looks exactly as shown. It was very cute, comfortable and well maintained. Such a beautiful lake and property. Can't say enough about the hosts, very friendly and answered any questions right away. It was perfect for a girlfriends getaway. We will be returning

    Sue2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff is an awesome host. Anything we needed, he was there for. It should be noted that the cabin has no view of the lake (I made the assumption by the angles of the photos taken, so really my fault) and the main house is literally right beside the cabin, making the place much less private. It's also a partially "self clean" unit ...which was not mentioned in the description. But all in all, it was a lovely place to spend a few relaxing days.
