“Loved our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Did a girls weekend away, just to chill. This proved to be the ideal place for us. We had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend: best of all it was spotless, comfortable, beautiful surroundings. We all agreed it was the best girls weekend we've ever had. You couldn't find a better location, heaven on earth. Service was very good, no complaints at all. My boyfriend and I will make the trip north next summer. Thanks!

"We rented a cottage here last summer and am getting ready to book again for this coming May. It was one of the most relaxing, enjoyable weeks I've had in a long time. The cottage was clean and cozy, and right by the lake. Each morning we woke up early to catch the sun coming up over the lake, while sipping coffee on our little porch. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. They also provided kayaks and stand-up paddle boards which we thoroughly enjoyed. My personal favourite activity was just relaxing on the doc with a beer, watching the lake and breathing in the clean, calm Muskoka air. I've already sent a few friends up to Walker Lake Resort because I want everyone to know about this little gem in the wilderness. I highly recommend doing a bonfire at night. We sat around the fire-pit and roasted marshmallows with some people we met from the other cottages. It was a blast!"

My girlfriend and I rented a cottage in May for our anniversary. It was a pretty far drive, but it turned out to be well worth it. The cottage was immaculate, and stocked with wood and newspaper. There was a heater going to warm up the cottage for us. The kitchen had everything we needed, minus the obvious things (condiments, food etc). The property was well maintained, and the cottage was right on the water. The best part for us, was that it was dog friendly. We will definitely be going back!

My daughter and I recently stayed in the Birch cottage. The view was sensational to enjoy the waterfront that was only steps away through the wall to wall windows. You felt like you were outside even when you were in the cottage.
The simple cottage has all the essentials. The wood stove quickly heated the living room up so we never needed to turn the heat on. While the beds were quite hard, the bedding was cozy with lots of extra blankets and pillows available.
We thoroughly enjoyed the use of the leisure equipment of kayaks, canoes and paddle boat. The evenings were spent around the campfire while we gazed at the millions if stars we can't see when we are home with the city lights.
A fantastic place to share with your family!! Les was a gracious host making sure we had everything we needed to ensure our stay was comfortable and memorable. When I had a concern, Les promptly and efficiently made sure we were taken care of. I highly recommend staying at the resort. You will thoroughly enjoy stay.

We needed time out and a chance to reconnect with each other and find some peace and quiet in a cozy setting. We stayed in the Birch cottage and found it had the ambiance and beautiful view and private wilderness feeling we were looking for. Although the furniture is old fashioned and a bit worn, it was comfortable,warm and very clean. The kitchen is modern. You could really feel at home here.Firewood was ready for use inside and out. If you want a sterile modern cottage this is not for you, If you want to feel like you did as a child at a family cottage, this is exactly the right place. The crystal clear, rocky bottom Walker lake at your doorstep is loaded with rainbows, lakers and smallmouth bass.You could see them jumping in the evenings. All watercraft were there for our use and it would be great swimming since there are no weeds. We stayed 3 nights and had dinner at the Norseman which is a "foodies" delight. Compliments to the chef! Gourmet dishes absolutely spectaculary presented and a cheesecake that we had to order doubles of...(and I never eat desert!!!!) The best part of all was that it was soooo close to the cottage that you could have a bottle of wine with your meal and not worry about driving home. We are hoping for a return vacation later this fall and again with the snowmobiles. This is only a short drive back into Huntsville, so you can go shop and see the town, take in a movie or get supplies easily. It feels like it is in the middle of nowhere, but it is close to everything.by car

Room Tip: The Birch has 2 rooms with a bed in each that could take 2 couples comfortably, but if you had a lot...

We rented 4 cottages for our family. Cottages were clean, with bathrooms and kitchen and barbecues all operating in good order, Cottages were in close proximity which allowed for excellent family time while enjoying great views of the lake. There were 2 docks, kayaks, canoes, lifejackets all ready to be used by adults and kids in our family and that provided for great entertainment. Fishing from the docks and motor boat was was also rewarding. The lake was silent with nil to very limited noise, we enjoyed a lot of time watching the stars at night. A great place to stay.....

We returned to this place after a couple of years. Our experience was even better this time. We stayed at the Spruce. The rooms were clean and spacious. However, we spent most of the time near the lake. There are a handful of cottages here, hence you have almost private access to the lake and the kayaks/canoes. Kids loved it, and so did the adults. Cottages have Wifi as well as a barbecue. There is a fireplace for the evening campfire near the lake. Kawartha icecream outlet is a few minutes drive towards Huntsville.
If you have any special requests or challenges, please reach out to Les. He does his best to make you comfortable.
Needless to say, we will return here again...

Room Tip: Choose the larger cottages if they are available.
