Enjoyed a relaxing weekend at Merland Park! Fantastic owners, amazing staff and super clean cottages!! They even have an adorable dog that gets along great with the other pets in the park. The fishing was excellent, but sadly it was still too chilly for the pool. A sure place to go for a great vacation! Thanks Jenn and Kevin for... More

Only stayed one night spoilt by the "boys" on a weekend of freedom. Swearing, loud mouthed drunks, playing loud music. Typically drunk as they had to swear and shout at each other to be heard. Went to the site office but it was closed. Nice location but not for my wife and I.

Huge thanks to Kevin and the staff from Merland Park Cottages for a fantastic mornings fishing session. We travelled all the way from Australia to get onto some of the highly renowned Walleye on the majestic Lake Ontario and Kevin was the man that made it happen with his mystery lures. All up 7 fish were caught and needless to... More

A friend of mine recommended Merland Park to me when I complained of a cottage rental that we tried to rent for 2 weeks fell apart. We normally like to rent small private cottages on quiet lakes as we are only a family of 3 plus 2 dogs and having had bad experiences in 'cottage colonies' I was nervous. However... More

We have rented various 3 and 2 Bdrm units here with friends (couples and singles), about 5-6x over the past 2 years. The guys had a blast during the fishing charter with Kevin, who showed them some good spots. Cottages Are neat and clean, some are More updated than others. obviously we have enjoyed our stay since we keep coming... More

We were drawn here since they allowed dogs and were on the water close-ish to sandbanks. The "motel" room we rented for $130/night had stained carpeting, and a musty smell. The mattress was of very poor quality. The shared kitchen was stacked with dirty dishes, food left out and flies. The broken screen door to the balcony was thankfully fixed... More

At first we were happy to find a vacancy to over night in your lovely area. However, although you advertise being a motel, you motel units are far from adequate. Here's what we got for $141.25 per night at your motel. No screen door between deck and bedroom and it was a warm, humid night. No fans or air conditioner.... More

My son and I had the pleasure of spending this past weekend and early into the week at Merland Park. We were on the hut for Quinte Walleye and thanks to a half day charter with owner Kevin Lavers my son and I had the best single day of fishing we have ever had together which on its own was... More

Best couple of days of fishing ever. My husband enjoyed himself to the limit...as did I. The sun shining all day to the roaring fire after dinner and everything In between. Even the the talented and generous guide thought my husband was a fast learner...the charter was well worth it. Lots of fish some laughs and even a swim! The... More

Having struggled to find fish on the Bay of Quinte we have found success after a charter with Kevin Lavers. Limits are not a problem now. Size 3 to 5 lbs. Fish cleaning shack second to none. Comfortable night sleep in a air conditioned, spotless cottage get to ready for the next day of hard day of fishing. Thanks Jen... More
