The only bad thing I can say about my stay is: I had to leave. Everything was exactly as portrayed by pictures/descriptions and the lake was absolutely beautiful and RIGHT there - and I mean RIGHT! there. The way the property is set up naturally lends itself to guest privacy, and the owner only approached me when he saw me... More

What a lovely destination to arrive at after cycling all day from Hamilton. Our host, Phillip, did everything in his power to make our stay as comfortable as possible. He even lent us his car to go and buy some groceries for dinner. 3 of us stayed in the "big" cottage. It was perfectly clean, had everything we needed and... More

I first discovered this secret treasure when looking for a cottage to rent in the summer of 2013. I thought it looked good on the website, but it did not do justice to what we saw when we got there for the first time! I, personally, fell in love all over again. It was incredible to discover such a peaceful... More

Arrived to be greeted by Phil, Sue and their beautiful chocolate lab. The cottage was clean, cozy and comfortable and the fridge was stocked with a wonderful assortment. The setting is second to none. Who would've know I was only minutes civilizations. Phil was very friendly and accommodating. We brought our pet dog, and she loved the area, we enjoyed... More

I am writing this review as I sip coffee at the kitchen table in "the big cottage" listening to the waves of Lake Ontario as they meet the shore. There really is no other sound like it. We are checking out today after two nights and not only do I not want to leave but I feel like a more... More

My wife and I wanted to get away for the first time away from our baby. What better then to sip some wine overlooking Lake Ontario in a quiet cottage. We were greeted by a beautiful property and an incredibly friendly and gracious host. Phil made us feel like home the moment we arrived at his property. The cottage was... More

We've stayed here twice, once renting both cottages for a larger family group. No description can capture the beauty and tranquility of being perched at the very edge of a great lake, with a distant view of waters that seem to go on forever. The cottages are quite old and full of character, completely private and stocked with supplies in... More

Unplanned getaway with our 2 pups , gorgeous view of the lake , very quiet . Will definitely do it again . Great experience and the cutest little cottage . Pleasantly surprised to find a well equipped clean cottage with a genorous supply of breakfast goodies . Surroundings were very tranquil amongst the orchards . A well needed escape :)

This is our 5th year staying here. Each time we have stayed here our expectations have been exceeded. The location is ideal - right off the QEW in the midst of orchards and close to many activities. The area is private, safe, very quiet and has an amazing view. We always stay in the larger cottage - very attractively decorated... More

We have been back to Cottage-by-the-Lake several times over the last 15 years. Before it was trendy for inn-keepers to do so, Phil always made our dog feel welcome. Indeed, there is nothing that our Wheaten terrier likes better than a romp in the orchard, or a hike along the Bruce Trail. Even though she is now 14 years old,... More
