This is an absolutely beautiful cottage. Rented it during the 2021 summer, we had a group of 14 that included children and seniors.
There were amenities galore that are too numerous to mention, there is something to keep all ages entertained.
The hosts Micheal and Tara were great, communication was excellent and the booking process was seamless.
The location and views are stunning, there are no neighbours and you feel like the lake is all yours. The location is at the end of a small Bay Area off the main section of the lake so there is zero boat traffic to be concerned with while swimming.
There is plenty of dock space for boats, fishing and lounging. There is also a shallow entry point off a small beach area for the younger guest and/or seniors.
There is a floating sauna that was awesome and very unique as well as a hot tub, large screened in sunroom, fire pit and bbq to use. The bedrooms are large and more than adequate for our needs. The kitchen is gorgeous, well stocked and lacked nothing we needed.
If you prefer to hang out inside there is shuffleboard, pool table or IPTV to keep you entertained. The wifi worked well and allowed some of us to do a bit of work while here.
As I said earlier there are too many features to mention them all, this is an excellent cottage in a terrific location. Hoping to go back in 2022.
The Smith Family
If you are looking for the perfect place to vacation in the Kawartha area, Crystal Lake is your spot! I've had the privilege of staying at “My Lakefront Cottage” two times now, once in the summer and once in the fall, and both of my experiences surpassed my expectations.
Summer at the cottage was perfect. the sandy beach, clear water, expansive dock and boat were great ways to fill our days. It was so nice to enjoy the outdoors in the privacy of the Bay, not having to worry about bothering neighbors. The floating sauna and screened in hot tub were two of my favourite amenities!
I didn't know that my summer stay could be beat, but I returned for Thanksgiving weekend with my family and the property, and surrounding property, offered just as much fun as it did in the summer. The views of the changing leaves were spectacular and the hiking trails were breathtaking.
The inside of the cottage was the perfect place to relax after day in the sun. The large kitchen was great for the chefs and bartenders in the group and the pinball machine, pool table and curling table provided hours of fun for everyone at night. Since the cottage has two large living rooms, it was easy to accommodate our large group on both floors, and the large balcony allowed us to feel like we were all together.
The owners, Mike and Tara, were great to work with right from the start. Mike answered any questions we had promptly and thoroughly and went above and beyond to ensure that our group had what we needed to make the most out of our stay.
We look forward returning to this oasis this summer, and for many summers to come!
