Kathy and Jeremy were great hosts. They were always nearby for some local tips and a great chat. The amenities on site were great fun - the slack-line, canoe and floating picnic table were our favourites! We also had access to the fire pit and BBQ - awesome! Only a 10 minute walk into town, but you still had that ‘remote’ feeling by the lake. The lake itself was very peaceful. Overall a great stay and taste of Muskoka life! I would recommend Kathy’s place to anyone wanting to visit the area.

We were made to feel very welcome by Kathy and her family. The outside space is truly magical at the lakeside with the added bonus of swings and slide for our little girl to enjoy. She also loved seeing the eggs collected from the chickens in the morning; and we were also pleased to have fresh eggs for breakfast! The house is also in a great location near to Port Carling which we also enjoyed exploring.

Fantastic venue and price! We had a wedding at Shamrock Lodge that weekend and the location was affordable and great proximity! Kathy and her family were very helpful and great hosts! Would absolutely recommend them and this location!

Great location and setting (on a small lake). Very kid friendly. Host was great to deal with. It is a modest place.

The house has easy access, amazing lake view, kayaks and canoe available to use. There is an amazing floating table by the lake that was our fave spot. Simple accommodations, old house, but comfortable. The kitchen utensils were dirty, kitchen towels were very dirty as well. They have chickens on the back yard that can be annoying and run after you. The back yard has many toys, this would be a great place to entertain toddlers.

This cottage is a must visit, especially if you have kids. Our party had two of them, and there wasn't enough time to enjoy all the toys and gadgets that are in the backyard. The view of the lake is majestic, the firepit overlooks the lake and they have a floating picnic table. It's walking distance to Port Carling, where one can grab a drink at Frankie's, tacos at Grand Electric or ice-cream at Mooskoka. We barely spent any time inside the cottage, and it was perfect for our party of four adults and two kids. We hope to be back one day.
