Perfect little cottage getaway located on Lake Simcoe just 1.5 hour north of Toronto. Clean & bright cottage with a modern feel will suit couples or small family. Sit back, unwind and enjoy the calming lake views from the cottage or the private lakeside deck.
Enjoy kayaking on the nearby Trent-Severn canal, a truly wonderful experience to connect with nature.
For a peaceful getaway this cottage is an ideal retreat for those looking to escape the city, recharge and reconnect with great views!

The space

The cottage is a small 2 bedroom so would be perfect for 1 or 2 couples or a small family of no more than 4 people.

Everything looked like on the pictures and Shirley personally welcomed us. It is a nice location to get out to town. Check-in and check-out was really easy. We would come again.

Shirley's place was inviting and directly across the road for the lake with private access. The fenced and private backyard was awesome! The cottage was very clean and neat. The instructions and communication with Shirley was easy and we would definitely book again! Thank you for our weekend escape!

Shirley's place was great - it was easy to find, location was fantastic being right across from the water, and most importantly the cabin was so clean! The cabin had everything listed in fine working condition, the bedrooms were comfy to stay in, and we had very enjoyable and cozy stay. Shirley was easy to communicate with and was happy to answer any questions. We would definitely recommend Shirley's place to anyone heading to the Lake Simcoe area.

A delightful location with a lake view . Our group enjoyed the private dock seating at the end of the day with a cool drink in hand. The accommodation was superb, well provisioned, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We all want to return next year.

Shirley's cottage was amazing!!! We had a wonderful time and the location was perfect for me and my family! Shirley was an excellent host and was so kind to even stayed and waited for us to arrive at the cottage in the evening. She was excellent at communicating and checked in with me a few days before our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and to give us some more information. Shirley's place was beautiful and we look forward to coming back next year! Thank you Shirley :)
