“Perfect choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

A relative selected Days at the Lake for family attending a wedding nearby and he couldn't have made a better choice. The grounds are beautiful, peaceful and imaginatively decorated. Having access to the lake with canoes, kayaks and a peddle boat was another feature that we really appreciated, as was just relaxing on the dock with other family members. The B&B itself was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. Finally, the concern shown by Wendy for the well-being for all members of the group was really appreciated. This would be my first choice for accommodation on a future trip.

My wife and I went back to this B & B for the 2nd time, cause we loved it so much the first time. The location, the facility, the warmth of Wendy & Steven cannot be match. The property is amazing, the lake is lovely, and the breakfast is the best ever. The wooden fireplace was truly appreciated by us and our bottle of wine. We are very excited about returning a third time. Good job Wendy & Steven.

I had the pleasure of visiting with Wendy and Stephen at their wonderful B&B, Days at the Lake. The accommodation was fantastic and the bed was unbelievably comfortable Days at the Lake has a beautiful dock, a paddle boat, canoe, rowboat and a 'floating' dock, The breakfasts were absolutely gourmet, tasty and so filling that I didn't need to eat anything until dinner. The grounds are beautiful with many flowers and lots of green grass. There is a fire pit, a patio, a hot tub. This B&B is great for all age groups, There is so much to do at Days at the Lake (which is on Pine Lake). Pine Lake is a small lake which leads out to Lake of Muskoka. I didn't see any motor boats so I wasn't nervous being in the paddle-boat, quite a distance from the shore. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this B&B as a place to visit for some quality R&R.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. Two rooms have their own ensuite washroom. Two rooms share a washroom...

Our weekend started with a motorcycle ride through the Muskoka area with the final destination as Days at the Lake. The property is very beautiful and took full advantage of drinking the morning coffee on the dock. All the meals were cooked to perfection and we sleep comfortably. I recommend this escape location to anyone wanting to visit the Muskoka area.

I stayed at this B and B with visiting relatives. it was our first time in Gravenhurst. The owners have created a beautiful sanctuary in the country with this B and B. There is a dock on a quiet, protected part of a lake down the hill from the B and B with ample canoes, kayaks and other Boats provided. The property is very-well maintained. It is full of the smell of pine trees and beautiful flowers. The owners also have extensive bird feeders that attract beautiful birds of all sorts. During breakfast, you can look at the sights and sounds of nature as you eat. Wendy's cooking is wonderful and creative. i would have gained ten pounds if I had stayed longer. the beds and pillows are very comfortable and everything is super clean. One note - the B and B does not allow street shoes inside (which i think is great), so bring slippers with you. If you forget, Wendy offers slippers on site, but you may want to bring your own.

Room Tip: While all the rooms are lovely, clean and comfortable, the "ensuite" rooms definitely offe...

We both enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Days On The lake. It was even more than we expected, from the view to the, grounds,the spacious and inviting home,the sandy beach,with plenty to do.If you just want to relax pull up a Muskoka chair and just soak in the beauty of the lake.I can not leave out the gracious hosts Wendy and Steve who made us feel completely welcome in their home. We are planning our next visit

We had a great family stay here that gave us a small taste of the Muskoka cottage experience. The property was amazing with beautiful gardens and beach area. You can tell the hosts take pride in their property by the way it's maintained.
Breakfast was a work of art complete with edible flowers.
Our rooms were very comfy and all the details were taken care of for a peaceful nights sleep.
Despite less than stellar weather, we did make use of the kayak & canoe. I recommend getting out on the water around the lake.
The only thing that could have made our stay better, would be to stay longer!

Room Tip: We chose the 2 rooms that shared a bathroom & that was ideal for our family of 4.
