Lake Edge Cottages
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We had a great time at Lake Edge Cottages. The owners bend over backwards to accommodate your needs and are always handy if you needs something. But you don't want for much as it is a tranquil area, yet close to town. Clean, and comfy bedding and all the little extras have been thought of, down to the paper towels! They offer so much.
Beside the nature, my three favourite things were: the POOL!, hiring a pontoon boat ride for a scenic tour and ice cream stop, and most importantly, we could bring along
our fur baby!!! YEP, it's dog friendly. We will be back soon...so much more to explore in the area too. Thanks for a wonderful time, we look forward to our next stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a cottage right on the water. You'll see lovely sunsets and the doggies love it too.

My wife and I discovered Lake Edge through a Beagle rescue fundraiser where we received a gift certificate. Our weekend stay was in one of the fully equipped cottages -- complete with kitchen (including utensils, plates, pots, etc.) and BBQ. It gave us everything we needed for our stay. The cottage included a deck with a fenced enclosure for our Beagle to relax off-leash. The deck offered a beautiful west-facing view for us to enjoy the sunset. The bed was comfortable and linens spotless. We used their paddle boat, kayaks, and canoes to enjoy the lake. The sandy beach is only a few steps from the cottage. The lake itself is inviting for swimmers -- though wear sandals or water shoes as it gets rockier the further you go into the lake.

It's a short drive to nearby Lakefield which has grocery, liquor, and beer stores. Lake Edge owners Peter and Pam prepared us well with a detailed welcome email with lots of suggestions for places to visit. Their hospitality made it feel like we were a part of the family.

It was pretty evident that we are not alone in our opinion of Lake Edge. The guest book included accounts from families who stay year after year.

Overall it was a fantastic find. We plan to refer friends and family, especially those with four-legged family members.

A family vacation to remember!
We were looking for a family cottage rental that was dog friendly and decided to try Lake Edge Cottages. What a great find. I have very fond childhood memories of a family summer cottage and our stay at Lake Edge brought them flooding back. We all LOVED swimming in the lake (especially our Portuguese Water Dog) and the pool, camp fires, canoeing, trail walks, bunk beds, the hot tub, and just sitting around playing board games, reading and enjoying the amazing view from the deck. The trails around the pond are a sanctuary on their own and perfect for a morning run, or a walk with the dog. The cottage was very comfortable, clean, and well-maintained, and the BBQ was better than what we have at home! Lakefield is a cosy little town, very close by with great shops. Peter and Pam are gracious hosts and made us feel at home. We will be back, in fact I wish I was there right now.

What a lovely find this was. We were looking for a quiet place that had a hot tub and accepted pets. This was just right. Private hot tub is fairly new and inspected daily by Peter. Bath robes included. Cottages are at the water's edge and are close together, but very quiet even with it being busy and other dogs. Propane fireplace is only source of heat, but manage to keep us very warm. We stayed in cottage #2 which was a bit tight for lounging with 4 people. Bed set ups were nice. Very clean throughout including washroom which functioned well with plenty of hot water. Snowed while there. Took a hike through their trails and were blown away by the beauty. Caretakers are friendly and obviously dedicated to ensuring a great stay. Traveled with two teenagers and would be a special getaway for any couple. Will put this on our "must return list" for a later time.

If you are looking for some quality time with urself look no further, lake edge cottages are perfect for you. The cosy and warm cottages are right at the edge of lake edge, giving you amazing views of sun rise, noon and sun set.

The cottage comes fully equipped with kitchen, so you can cook your meal just the way you like or drive down to near by village for food and supplies.

This is a pet friendly place. So if you are not pet friendly, just FYI :-)

Thanks for staying at Lake Edge. It was a pleasure having you here. We are glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet. Our slow season begins the end of October and lasts until the Christmas holidays begin. A perfect time to get away from the city and have the place almost to yourself. We hope to see you again.
Your Hosts,
Peter & Pam Fischer

We've been going to Lake Edge Cottages for several years. It's our go-to getaway with our dog Buster. The cottages are very comfortable, the waterfront view is beautiful and it's cosy, rustic without being rough. Buster has the run of the woods and we get to have a relaxing respite from city life. Nearby Lakefield has a butcher store that is fantastic. We always pick up our groceries after we've unpacked. The town is less than 10 minutes away and has everything you need.
We've stayed in most of the lakefront cottages including the one with a hot tub in winter! Great fun! We've had friends stay with us (4 adults plus one teenager) plus our schnoodle. It's a little crowded for the 1-bedroom cottage but with good friends, totally doable. One year we cooked a turkey dinner at Thanksgiving. I would definitely recommend Lake Edge Cottages to anyone with a dog who wants to escape the city and experience the great outdoors. There's excellent hiking in the nearby provincial park. One tip: we always bring two canvas folding chairs and an extra lamp (if you're like me and like mood lighting).
Pam and Peter are terrific hosts and they are always improving the property. We've stayed at other places that "allow" dogs but in our experience only Lake Edge "welcomes" dogs!
Lakefield also has lots of shops to browse in and you can rent dvds for entertainment at night. Each cottage has a dvd player with the tv.

My wife and I stay for a weekend and we just loved it. Right on the lake, Jacuzzi hot tub next to the room and some good fishing. The room we had was the suite on the lower level of the main house. It was clean, huge and had a great view of the lake. We had a kichenete and a barbeque but we did not use it. Peter and Pam are great hosts and had all the info on local restaurants, shops and sites to see.

We hope to be back again real soon.
