This place is an absolute gem. Johnnie and Deb have hosted us twice now and we've had an incredible experience both times. Their property has to be seen to be believed. There is so much space, so many great spots to relax, and a gorgeous lakefront space to enjoy nature. I can't recommend it enough!

Johnnie and his wife have a great place for vacation, especially for a big group. They responded to our questions and needs very quickly. They are super friendly, and keep everything tidy and organized. Thank you very much.

This is an A+ accommodation and Johnnie the host was amazing!!!

A group of 13 of us rented 4R retreat for a bachelor party weekend and it was a really great experience! Johnnie and Deb were fantastic hosts, provided everything we needed to have the best possible time, and made us feel at home. The property is rustic and beautiful - and the location on the lake is private and tucked away - which is just what we needed to kick back and let loose in nature. Would definitely recommend to others looking for a laid back, fun environment to spend some time in cottage country! Thanks again for everything!

Being organized for a family reunion for the past 30 consecutive August long weekends certainly helped us get prepared for this first time gathering at Gilmour. Sharing in tasks such as kitchen clean-up after meals, is essential when working with a large group. What a great kitchen to work in. We also decide on certain themes which only enhance the experience. This year it was music. We were quick to find the music studio would be an excellent venue for the many talented participants. We had an absolute fab time with hats off to our wonderful hosts. Hands down this reunion goes down as one of the best.

Large and amazing property. Great lake front views with beautiful water. Very unique and rustic but very clean and exactly what we wanted. Johnnie and Deb were super helpful and accommodating and amazing people to get to know. If your looking for a lakefront cottage for larger groups, with lots of sleeping quarters, a large property to do almost anything you want (games, music etc). I would strongly recommend considering this property. Thanks Johnnie and Deb for an amazing weekend!

Rustic and short of space . If you like small log cabins, this is for you but for that this is slightly overpriced. Overall, John and Debbie are very gracious and helpful.

Response from Johnnie:
We do not agree that this review is accurate. Saumya did not read the listing description properly. He only rented ONE HALF of the AVAILABLE ACCOMMODATIONS and also he did not seem to understand that THE CABINS are SLEEPING CABINS only and not seperate cottages. The COTTAGE CONTAINS and CONSISTS of 4 ADDITIONAL SLEEPING BEDROOMS plus WASHROOM, DOUBLE DELUXE kitchen, dining and socializing areas PLUS front deck overlooking the LAKE plus BBQ and CAMPFIRE areas. NO OTHER PERSON has ever complained about shortage of space. The RUSTIC EFFECT is PURE PINE floors, walls, and ceilings! We LOVE IT! So has EVERYONE ALWAYS complimented me on my CUSTOM CARPENTRY. The PINE LOG SLEEPING CABINS are absolutely BEAUTIFUL each has it's own SPECIAL SPOT "Nestled in Nature" and the PURE PRIVACY is loving being in nature KNOWING you have a SAFE and SPACIOUS SPOT located WATERFRONT! As Saumya did NOT rent the whole property he is sadly mistaken about shortage of space. He did not take into consideration that WE HAVE MORE SPACE than any other listing as we can sleep 40+ His GROUP was HIS FAMILY FROM India whom in my opinion don't quite get IT when it comes down to nature as he did not come prepared for the ELEMENTS OF NATURE and we had to give him BUG SPRAY for EVERYONE. That is not our responsibility. READ the REST of our REVIEWS. You won't find another like this. As far as PRICE, we are UNDERPRICED and AIRBNB has SUGGESTED PRICES via AIRBNB SMARTPRICING that we are under. NOWHERE will you find another PRIME WATERFRONT PROPERTY consisting of COTTAGE & CABINS so UNIQUE and BEAUTIFUL BEACH plus BAR and MUSIC STUDIO so SMILE as WE WILL continue to WELCOME WONDERFUL people BOTH NEW BOOKINGS and RETURNEES! Cheers. Johnnie
