I rented this cottage for the first time in Aug 2016 for myself and my three kids and we loved it so much we came back again in July this year. It's a nice clean cozy little cottage. The kitchen has everything you could need to prepare food. The rooms are nice and clean. The lake is quiet and the perfect place to sit out and relax or get out in the boats. I have 3 kids 5-7 and the waterfront is shallow enough they can swim and play in. Mario has been super helpful the 2 summers we have been there and just up the road if we ever needed anything. We will definitely come back again!
The cottage was very clean and tidy, the bathroom was large with a nice tub and shower. The beach and dock were perfect to play or fish off of. The lake was a good size to kayak or other water sports.
The cottage is just down the road from Algonquin park remote entrance to enjoy kayaking. We also kayaked the Magnetawan River from just outside the lane way all the way to Kearney and the opposite way towards Sand Lake until we hit the rapids.
We also traveled to Parry Sound, Hunstville and Dorset to paddle their local waters, all within a short drive. The stars trails were amazing for night photography.
Great location for a getaway. Came up to visit friends and found a little piece of heaven. The cottage has everything you need to make your stay perfect. Seating, great kitchen and the beds were very comfortable. Woke up and enjoyed the sounds of nature while having my morning coffee was a great escape from the normal rush of the city. I can't wait to book again next year and spend more time enjoying the lake and relaxing around the fire pit. You have a great place and I will be recommending it to my friends.
Cozy, traditional, well-equipped cottage, comfortable beds, seating and dining, and a kitchen lacking for nothing, all set on a lake with other small family cottages. The waterfront is sandy and slopes gently into the lake – perfect swimming and canoe landing. Himbury Lake itself is set in hills, and offers a delightful one-hour paddle around its circumference. The cottage faces the sunset (August) and the fire ring is a perfect place to see it. Mario and Rose will offer you a warm welcome; highly recommended.
What can I say? This holiday cottage was just amazing. The owners Mario and Rose made us feel so welcome and at home and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was stunning with amazing views over the lake. We spent many early mornings listening to the haunting call of the loons on the lake. Lots of things to do and places to explore such as the amazing Algonquin park where we were lucky enough to see moose! I would recommend this place to everyone and we will definitely be back! Many many thanks Rose and Mario X
