Cardiff lake
We had a fabulous time. The cottage accommodated 7 people very nicely. The location of the cottage was amazing and so beautiful. We did lots of hiking. The waterside was incredible and the lake is very scenic and serene. We enjoyed the water and hill view from inside the cottage and out. If you like geocaching, hiking, camping or just relaxing by the lake, I strongly recommend this stay.

5/5 Excellent

Awesome Cottage in Quiet Area
Staying at this cottage was an awesome experience. We rented the cottage to get away from the city and experience Algonquin Park. The cottage is an approximately one hour drive from the Algonquin Park main day hiking trails along Highway 60. However there are a few hiking trails in the southern part of Algonquin Park and the area surrounding the cottage within a 15 minute drive. Therefore, the location allows you to avoid staying in the really touristy areas while still being located within a reasonable distance of the main part of Algonquin Park. The cottage is in excellent condition and had everything we needed for comfort, such as three bedrooms that can sleep up 6-7 people, a fully equipped kitchen, a BBQ, and a fire pit for the essential experience of cooking hotdogs and s'mores over the fire. The cottage also has a patio and dock that allows you to stay outside and look at the stars. A canoe eas provided allowing us to start ourmorning with a paddle through the mist of the quiet lake. The cottage is located on a quiet road that is part of a trail system that provided me an enjoyable 10km run. The owner went above and beyond what we expected. Check in was extremely simple and the owner checked in on us daily to make sure that we were having an enjoyable time and to see what else she could do for us. She even gave us a warning of an upcoming cold night that allowed us to prepare to ensure the kids had a comfortable sleep. She provided us a binder that let us everything we needed to know to maximize our stay in the area. My family is extremely happy that we were able to find this cottage and it was instrumental in making our first visit to the Algonquin Park a memorable experience.

5/5 Excellent

perfect cottage stay
The property was perfect. The house was well kept, clean, well furnished and well equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed, bathroom modern and functional, comfortable beds, seating for everyone indoors and out. The lake is stunning, and the situation of the property perfect on it, for sitting on the dock, wading, swimming and canoeing. The size, location and amenities of the property was perfect for our group, 3 adults and 3 kids under 8. The locale is excellent, everything you could want to do in a cottage getaway, but also stores nearby if you need something. Highly recommend and hope to return!

4/5 Good
