My husband, dog and I rented a cabin for a week and we absolutely loved it! The best way to experience the Haliburton Highlands. Our cottage had everything we needed to make meals and enjoy our stay. TV was brand new, also had an iPod dock. Enough room for us to invite some family over for dinner in the small... More

My husband and I together with our sister and friends from the States stayed for a week this past July in cottage #7 at Willow Beach for the first time. At first we were a little weary as one of the ladies is a well-known watercoloured artist who was coming with a view to take a lot of photos for... More

Wow where to start...We had a great cottage, a wonderful view, the owners were very helpful in getting us information on day trips we could take our kids. There is so much these cottages offer you, you really dont need to go anywhere but to look out the front door. But if day trips are your thing there is so... More

We stayed in Cottage #2 and found the cottage itself clean, cozy and comfortable. The kitchen had new looking appliances, clean serving ware and pots/pans as well as everything else we needed for making meals (utensils, kettle etc.). The furniture and beds were comfortable and the bathroom was spotless upon our arrival. The cottage had a great selection of movies... More

I traveled there with my boyfriend, our daughter, and a group of friends and we all had a great time. The owner's were on site the weekend we went there, they were very friendly and helpful. There were lots of activities to keep us busy all weekend at no extra cost, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, badminton, volleyball etc. The location... More

Our 8th season returning to Willow Beach. We were aware of the cancellation of the children's program and no access to the Hot-Tub. Still our cottage (#6) was updated with some welcomed personal touches. The kids had a blast with the other families, and we left feeling rested and satisfied. We will return.

If you spend almost $200.00 p/night for a cottage and the website talks about fully equipped cottages, a lit skating rink and snoweshoing at your doorstep etc. and you travel regularly with family you know what comparables are in that price range. For example, I rented a "cabin" in the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina last year for almost the... More

Last year was fine. Everything changed this year. No owners on site. My wife stayed for the week, I left after the weekend. Firewood -- which the website says is in "good supply" -- ran out after two days. The screen on the fireplace was broken and my wife sustained burns trying to close it. It's impossible to contact anyone... More

As one of the new owners of Willow Beach Cottages I felt compelled to respond to this post. I am not the person who dealt with this woman (I notice this post was written by her husband). However I am fully aware of the case. "Everything changed this year". All that really changed is that the former owners (who were... More

Misrepresented on website. Most things offered now gone (hot tub, skating rink, snowshoe rental, etc). No management on site. Sadly old owners gone. Was a gem. Lost our down payment. No one to contact. No response. Terms of old down payment was terrible anyway, so beware.

Corktown, Owner at Willow Beach Cottages, responded to this review

Willow Beach Cottages transferred to a new ownership group late in 2009. As part of the transfer all bookings in place were to be honoured. Also the booking terms of the resort have not changed from the previous owners, and are not unusual for an Ontario resort ("Terms of old down payment was terrible anyway"). Due to the short primetime... More
