“Beautiful Gem of a Spot”
Reviewed June 22, 2010

Wow! I am almost afraid to write this review because I do not want this spot to be full when we want to come and stay-but this charming spot deserves notice. This was our second visit to Cottage By The Lake and we love it and will return year after year. The first thing you will notice is how far away you feel from everthing once you are there but yet you are less than 5 minutes from the highway. The road is a road at best but there are some lovely homes and cottages scattered about. The next thing you will notice and never forget is the view. Yes this place is really by the lake-about 5 feet! Overlooking the Toronto skyline, Hamilton, Burlington, Mississauga...you get the picture. Thirdly is the lovely property in which Cottage by the Lake sits. About 2 acres owned and lovingly maintained by Philip who also specializes in grapevine products that he makes in his shop on site. He has a very friendly Lab that will go with you on a walk-just don't go too far or you may need to carry Bailey home! The property consists of 2 cottages and Philips home. We have not stayed in the smaller of the 2 cottages-we have used the one with the clawfoot tub. The cottage is beautiful and pretty much gives you views of everything with all the large windows. There is a woodstove, a separate bedroom, kitchen and washroom. This is a bed and breakfast but in a different way. The cottage is fully stocked with everything you could dream of. There is delicious food and plenty of it to even get you to dinner. We had bacon and ham and eggs, bakery treats, fresh milk and orange juice, coffee, tea and water just to name a few. The washroom is stocked with soaps and shampoos and even a hairdryer. Really the best part of everthing is the plenty of Muskoka chairs that sit at the waters edge. We really like this place. It suits us well because we can come and go as we please and we are not structured with a particular breakfast time like in a standard B&B. Philip is very friendly and gracious with a very good knowledge of the area. I can not think of a better place to be to crack open a locally purchsed bottle of wine.
