“Once again completely blown away”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

This is the second time that me and my fiancee have been to Springwood Cottages. The first time we came up we did it last minute on a Travelzoo deal. We called to book on the Thursday for arrival on the Friday and they arranged for everything for us. We did a full group visit this year with a party of 10. Once again Cezar blew us away with his generosity and his personality. We brought up 8 people that had never been there before and each and every one of them said the same thing at the end of the weekend- "Can't wait to come back, and can't believe how amazing the owner is". Would recommend this resort for anyone looking for either a family, romantic or friends getaway. Will definitely be back!

Arrived Tuesday afternoon and was greeted by the owners Jola and Cesar. Both were extremely friendly and nice. Jola gave us a tour of the Main Cottage (we booked a Regular Cottage but they had ready for us the Main Cottage complete with hot tub at no extra charge - I guess it being the slow season and there was only one other couple on site besides us. Anyways it was a nice treat and much appreciated. Yola had our cottage ready and gave us a brief tour and explained all activities that were available for us to do. She gave us her cell number and encouraged us to text or call her if we needed anything throughout our stay. The cottage was clean and cozy, complete with big screen TV and cable on demand! The scenery at Springwood is indescribable - words don't do it justice. Absolutely beautiful and stunning. We did our own nature hiking and got some fabulous pictures. Some friendly advice - if you don't have a 4x4 or winter tires you will get stuck on the grounds lol!! Cezar had to pull our car out twice from the slightly inclined driveway that leads into the grounds (it didn't help that I had semi bald all season tires and only Front wheel drive - thanks again Cezar!). On our last day we did the ATV trail tour and was the highlight of our stay. Cezar guided us on a 2 hour tour of the most breathtaking and scenic trail ride that I'll remember for years to come. We went on a two hour trail ride and we only got charged for one! Cezar allowed us to stop and take photos as well. Overall, it was a great 2 day mini vacation that was priced reasonably and good value for our dollar. Oh ya, don't be afraid of Yola and Cezar's two dogs, they are super friendly and greeted us every morning at our porch wanting us to play with them :) Thanks again guys and definitely will be back this summer!

First visit to Springwood and loved the place, lots to do in all seasons and plenty to do to keep the kids busy if you have them. All cottages seem well equipped with everything you should need for your stay and if you think something is missing just ask your host Cezar he will get it sorted for you, he is such a great host always making sure everything is okay and if there is anything he can do. Grounds are nice and spacious with a nice little beach that you can go swimming from or have bonfires at night, in Winter month we were told it acts as an ice rink....perfect. There is a BBQ area with probably a BBQ for every cottage, great place to meet and great around dinner time with a nice glass of wine. We will almost certainly return, a great place for a long weekend or even a week or two with the kids especially if you like to fish. Not sure why it's not pet friendly as Cezar has a couple of dogs that wander the property. I would certainly recommend this resort to anyone, nice little bit of fresh air.

Came here recently in a party of about 20. Cottages were fantastic and clean. The grounds were impressive. Great beach area with a fire pit. The ATV Tour was amazing! Cezar was a great host and very understanding as we got a little carried one night down at the fire pit.
I 100% recommend this site to anyone and everyone... Great Value.

Room Tip: They are all great!

Our first visit to Springwood Cottages turned out to be exactly what we had hoped for. We loved the accommodation with all the amenities which are not always included when renting. The hot tub was amazing especially because we came in October. We loved the peace and quiet, the scenery, was stunning. We would not hesitate to return the same time another year. Cezar's passion for hospitality was evident at all times: what a gracious host! Thank you again, for the lovely tour of the beautiful lake upon our arrival. The abundance of good free firewood was a real bonus. You folks think of everything. You were so accommodating to allow us free access to all the cottages for future reference. Our friends, Frank and Matt, were equally impressed. We would all love to return, hopefully next fall. Thank you, again!

Like to fish? Like to swim? Like the Beach, Like to BBQ, Boat, Horseshoes, Camp Fires, Volley Ball, Hot Tub, ATV, nature walks and so on (there is so much I don't remember it all).... It's all here and provided to you by Cezar who makes it his priority to accommodate you during your stay and all at reasonable prices. The grounds are gorgeous, the cottages are CLEAN! comfortable and fully equipped. There are activities for everyone yet there is still tranquility if you just want to get away.
I have stayed at many cottage resorts across southern Ontario and I would have to say that Cezar has made Springwood Cottages the tops in my book.


I will definitely be back.
