Gord and Nancy certainly know how to make their guests feel welcome. They are excellent, friendly hosts, on hand with advice, maps and information, but were never obtrusive. The five of us rented the 3 bed cottage, which was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The lake front and dock area is lovely, with a huge amount of water toys and boats. We liked the water trampoline and moonwalk, and tried out the kayaks, canoe, stand-up paddle board, row boat and paddle boats. We also swam and floated lazily on the water in tubes. There are plenty of muskoka chairs to lounge in and look at the view, although the bugs were definitely biting at this time of year. Nancy kindly gave us some anti-bug wristbands and patches and we sprayed ourselves liberally with Off.
We visited Algonquin Park for a day, and Nancy and Gord were able to supply a vehicle pass which avoided us having to line up to buy park passes at the park gate. But really, the setting of the cottage on Lake of Bays is so beautiful, we were happy just to spend time pottering around and enjoying all the facilities. It is very peaceful and quiet, totally relaxing. We would definitely love to return!
