We had a great Thanksgiving weekend at Turning Point. Weather wasn’t too cooperative, but the location was great. Lots of movies etc for the rainy day! Sherri is a wonderful host!

This is our second time staying at Sherri's cottage. What can I say, it's just a really special place!

We stayed at Sherri's cottage for 3 nights. It was wonderful. This is the place to go if you want to get away from the hectic city life. The property is very private, the multiple decks were great, watching the sunsets from the dock were amazing. It is so peaceful and serene. Fishing off the dock was also great - I caught a huge fish (don't know what kind) which unfortunately got away from me - my fishing line was not strong enough - so sad! We also spent an afternoon in downtown Port Perry shopping on Queen Street but most of our time was spent outdoors - we just didn't want it to end. We'll definitely be back.

This was a second time at Sherri's and just as great as the first time. The cottage is well equipped and private back patio is great for dinners and relaxing. We got out on the canoe as well as fished from the dock...also got in a round at Wolf Run which was so scenic. The place was clean and Sherri is great with communicating to ensure her guests are well informed!

Sherri was very responsive prior to and during our stay. The cottage itself was very quiet and relaxing. The cottage was filled with every little thing you would need during the trip, and more importantly, with great music and view! Would definatley recommend.
