“Lovely summer cottage!”

This cottage was clean and the renter was fantastic. We had a great week!

The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and was very clean on arrival, which is important for me. The only negatives are that the bugs at night were really bad (it's Ontario in the summer, so you kind of already know that though). Also, it was not as private as we would have liked (with trailer park on one side and close cottage on the other, which is not clear in the photos). But the paddle boat was lovely and we would take it out to the swim dock every day to go for a dip. Also, has a DVD player and Satellite TV for some evening entertainment.

I would definitely recommend this cottage to couples, families with children and/or pets.

We are very happy that you enjoyed our cottage this summer.
Our neighbours on the one side have taken down the old cottage and are building a new home next door.
Hopefully your family will enjoy our cottage again in the future.
So nice to hear that the cottage was nice and clean and everything was comfortable for your stay.

“Absolutely awesome”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

When we arrived at your beautiful cottage and walked inside we all went (we bought along a friend as well)....WOW......the pictures online do not do this beautiful place justice. The cottage was cool, immaculately kept and just awesome. You provided so much that we needed nothing. Definitely booking again for 2 weeks next year....reminded me of home so much, haven't felt at that much peace in a very long time....im from new Zealand been here in Canada for 13 years.....loved it

“One Week Didn't Feel Long Enough!”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This cottage rental was exactly as advertised - nicely renovated with open concept on a quiet lot by the river. We travelled with our 9 year old son and he never once got bored - plenty of fishing and exploring to be had. The frog pond added some fun as well..... We had to check out where the huge bullfrog was every morning. A loon family on the river sang to us every evening as we chilled out by the campfire.
I would recommend this vacation spot to any family as long as the kids aren't too young, simply since the dock area is more of a marshland - no solid ground so it's challenging for a non swimmer. There is a fishing boat, canoe and paddle boat perfect for exploring the marsh.
Cottage itself was stocked with everything we needed. Our family dog came along as well which was a greatly appreciated bonus.

“Lovely cottage for the entire family!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This lovely cottage on Rylstone lake really has everything you'd need for a relaxing family-friendly vacation. It was the perfect place for our little guy (he turned 6 months while we were there). Great size and layout (the separate more private master bedroom was great for us and allowed the rest of the family to sleep in when our little guy started 'chatting' at 6am).

Complete with towels, linens, washer/dryer, tv (for rainy days), firepit with lots of firewood available, canoe (though it could use some new paddles), a great swimming deck, fun frog pond and great wildlife (family of loons greeted us every day, and we even woke up one morning to a heron sitting on the swimming deck).

Liked best: Can't decide on just one thing... It's a great place.
Liked least: Easily fixed: Some things need to be updated (paddles, axe for chopping firewood) and need more forks and bigger sized mugs.
