This place was amazing. There was significant snowfall that day that provided us with the most fantastic and beautiful winter getaway. Trenanthia cottage is perfect for a family getaway. Two living rooms both with wood burning fireplaces allowed for the gang to separate and enjoy time together. The upstairs also provided a great space for the kids to get away from the adults with a vintage skeeball game, darts and sitting area for board games. There was plenty of cozy rooms for everyone to be comfortable for sleeping and 4 bathrooms allowed for lots of privacy. Another favourite was the large dining room table with a view of the lake. A lot of time was spent at this table all together sharing meals and playing games. The piece de resistance was definitely the hot tub and sauna. It was great to warm up after a day outside. The area around the cottage allowed for nice nature walks and the cottage is located close to all amenities including the beautiful Gravenhurst with cool shopping and restaurants and a brewery. A short drive away allowed us to enjoy a famous Weber's lunch and dog sledding!!!! The owners are incredibly helpful and very available. We will definitely return. I can't even imagine how great this place would be in the summer too!!!
Beautiful cottage with cute vintage charm. Lots of room for our large group. Sleeping areas are nicely separated from the living/eating area; late nights or early morning noise won't wake others. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need. Beautiful views of the water from the kitchen table!
Highly recommend the post-visit cleaning service, it is a big cottage and no one wants to end a fantastic get away by cleaning.
I would also recommend bringing a kid wagon to help haul stuff into the cottage as there is a little bit of a path.
We stayed at the new cottage between Christmas and New Years. It's in a lovely location. It has four bedrooms upstairs. The master is terrific with the "tree-house" bedroom above the king bed. The downstairs is a great layout for entertaining and the games room kept the adults and kids entertained for hours. The hot-tub was large and the double sided fireplace added a great atmosphere to the cottage.
A great family get together place for sure. Thanks for a wonderful experience!
We had a group of 10 people, kids and adults.
Kids loved the treehouse in the master bedroom!
Everyone loved the hot tub and outdoor sauna.
The living room(s) was a great place to gather around the fire.
Board games were lots of fun!
It was winter so we kept to the cottage, but always something to do.
I would really like to come back in the summer!
We absolutely loved our stay here! The cottage is located in the beautiful muskoka region, only 1 hour and 30 minutes away from Toronto! Our whole family, including our dog of course, was able to fully relax here and reconnect! They have a great outdoor sauna and a large hot tub, what better way to unwind? The views from the cottage were great! It is a truly big cottage with lots of attention to detail! Everything you need is here and we can't wait already to come back! Communication with Laura was incredible and she made the whole process a breeze! Would highly recommend!!
Just got back from a magnificent weekend with my children and grandchildren. The cottage and property exceeded even our expectations. We can be very critical when paying a fair bit of money for two days. We asked to be let into the cottage earlier than allowed (430pm) due to unpacking cars and 4 children under the age of 4 AND having to do it in the dark ( it was December after all). The owner Laura was very receptive to the idea and understood exactly what our plight consisted of. True to her word, they managed to get the cottage ready an hour earlier (330) and we got everything and everyone in before dark. The cottage is massive and homey. We all ran around like children finding the perfect bedroom for each of us. One even has a hidden room! The view outside the cottage is gorgeous. Everything you need is at your disposal. The kitchen has every pot, pan, utensil or bowl you can imagine. I cooked a turkey dinner and brought a throw away foil pan and tablecloths. I brought much more, but didn't need to. I'll know better for next time, and yup, there will be a next time! Enjoy the solitude and tranquil atmosphere in the sauna or the hot tub. I can only imagine how fabulous this place must be in the summer, because it was magical in December!
I would 1000% recommend this beautiful rental for any occasion or no occasion at all.
Cant wait to stay there again!!
