So we recently stayed here over Canada day week. So here we go... Upon entering you realize it's not your typical huge cottage resort. But I don't say that as a negative because it was quite quiet... So we stayed at the woodland and it was pretty well kept. It is definitely updated. Seemed very cleaned and everything you need... More

The Woodland Cottage was beautiful and met all of our expectations. Was very clean and comfortable. The cottage was stocked with all our necessities upon arrival including coffee for our first morning. The deck overlooking the beach was the perfect place to have our evening barbecues (bbq was also supplied) The little beach is lovely, private and quiet. The water... More

We stayed in the Woodland cottage and it was clean and functional. A wonderful view of the lake from the deck. The beach and lake were very, very nice. Eta, the owner, also was charming and helpful. What wasn't clear from the web site is that the only place your dog can swim is at the boat launch which is... More

We stayed for two weeks in this place. Certainly enjoyed it and for sure hated it :) Owner was nice and welcoming, lake was great, little private beach was right next to the cottage. But those trains are indeed a problem - they are 50 going meters from the cottage, they come several times each night (and day too), blowing... More

This was beyond our expectations, it was exactly as Eta had explained it to us and then some. A very clean family environment. Were allowed our puppies as were others renting cottages at the same week as us, all dogs were quiet, family were quiet, all enjoyed the beach facility. My wife and I fished, bicycled and swam, and enjoyed... More

My family has vacationed at Lakeview Cottages for the last 26 years, but last month was the first time I had been there in 4 years. And it was just as great as I remember it being. Eta, the cottage owner, is warm and welcoming. The cottage we stayed in was quaint and clean. There is a nice upper deck... More

I see a lot of focus on the train.... yes, there is frequent service, but we were not disturbed by it at all. They did not blow their horns in the early mornings and they certainly did not shake the cottage. we booked a week last year and ended up staying an extra couple nights not wanting to leave. The...

There are very few summer vacation memories I have from growing up that didn't take place here. My family spent 2 weeks every August for at least 10 years at this resort, and we always had a blast. The cottages are clean, and more than adequate for those looking for a true Canadian cottage vacation, with plenty of amenities. Our... More

It was a nightmare, worst cottage ever, because it is next to train tracks. Nobody were able to sleep at night. Owner should state on website that there are trains running by every 30 minutes. After first night owner told us to stay another night because she was sure that we will get used to that. But how can you... More

Otter Lake, where Lakeview Cottages is situated, is simply incredible. You can be serenaded by a loon and take a cool dip. The water is clean, peaceful, and not very crowded. However, these positives cannot make up for the other shortcomings of this vacation property. First and foremost MUST be the proximity of the train tracks to the cottage. Trains... More
