“Here’s the skinny: Sarah’s a helpful & knowledgeable host. Ask her for trail, activities and nearby town info. Her Bay cottage had a wonderful lake view, paddle boat/canoe/kayak for use, beach access, shared fire pit, parking & was clean as a whistle. Would stay again, access to Bala & Gravenhurst within 30 minutes. Try 2.5 hour Gravenhurst lunch sail to see Muskoka Lake & hear it’s history for yourself. Enjoy !”
Esti and Bert's lakeside log cabin is located on a quiet bay of Muskoka region's eleventh largest lake. This 100+ year old cabin has been recently upgraded to offer a modern 3-piece washroom, kitchenette, and bedroom. Additional sleeping accommodation is available in the main room. Please note: as you may be aware, COVID-19 precautions essentially require that you bring your own towels and bedding (sheets, pillows, and blankets). All other identified amenities will be in place when you arrive.
“My boyfriend and I had one of the most special and unforgettable trips we've ever had! Everything about Esti and Bert's log cabin seemed great in the pictures and reviews, but it was even better when we arrived. We were after the dream lake-side stay where we could really relax, and that's exactly what we got. The cabin is really cosy, clean and comfortable, and we had two great nights listening to the outside sounds of nature whilst playing dominos with some red wine inside! We bought some groceries and used the bbq to make some great, simple meals. There did seem to be some lovely restaurants in nearby towns but we decided to leave the cabin as little as possible! We slept really well and the bathroom was clean and new, though still in keeping with the rest of the cabin. The setting is just what we wanted; the cabin overlooks the lake, and we loved having breakfast on the porch with that view. Swimming in the lake was heaven and the temperature was great, and Esti and Bert kindly let us make use of their peddle boat. Their hospitality however was one of the highlights - they were so welcoming and made us feel really at home. Two nights was not enough and we're still talking about how much we'd like to go back and swim in the lake. Couldn't recommend Esti and Bert's place enough and really hope we can return one day!”

“Sherry is an amazing host who went above and beyond to help accommodate us. She met us at the cottage, welcomed us and showed us all the great features on the property. Her hospitality is amazing! Me and my group have cottaged often together over the past 5 years and we all instantly fell in love with this property. It was perfect for us. We have never went back to revisit any cottage we have stayed in but we definitely will be back to this one! The views around the property are breath taking. From sunrise to sunset, I was in awe the whole time. If you are looking for a place to come and take lots of great pictures, this is the place to do it! The boys in the group are huge fishermen and havent had much luck this year anywhere we have went. Within 5 mins of arriving, they caught a beautiful pike from off the dock. The fishing in the lake was amazing. Every time they casted , they caught. There is also a private boat launch steps away from the property which made things easy. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather the weekend we went. Soaked up the sun and got to swim. Great way to end the summer. Thank you Shelly for sharing your space with us. We look forward to coming back next summer if you will have us. We all had a great time. I recommend this place!! 10/10”
