Thanksgiving get away gone wrong!
We booked the Look Out cottage for a 4 day Thanksgiving get away and lasted one night! The cottage had quite a few major ISSUES that were totally unexpected. Very cold cottage with little water pressure and not much TV/DVD to speak of. Also, the picture are very deceiving…. After leaving early the next day we got there, the owner apologized and offered us another weekend. We will NEVER be back.

My family and I have been going to this cottage since 1976. We did miss a couple of years and have stayed both for 1 week and 2 weeks. We are now 3 generations travelling here and renting the Boathouse at the same time. If you want to get back to nature and enjoy a clean, clear lake this is the place. There is lots of room in the cottage, great appliances and lots of dishes, as well as satelite tv. Beds are comfy and lots of space in the living room for movie watching. The huge kitchen table seats 8 and is great for monopoly tournaments.Best of all the cottage was super clean. Fishing is good. Lake has lake trout and bass The village of Bancroft is 10 min away and has great shopping and some nice restaurants for rainy days. There is also a small hospital. We have even gone here for Thanksgiving, taking a turkey and all the fixings.

I highly recommend this cottage - great location, great hosts
My family (two adults, two kids now aged 9 and 7) have stayed in the Lookout for a week in each of the past three summers. We are long-term Kenslynne Cottages customers and have stayed in all of them. The Lookout is a large, comfortable cottagey cottage - it is not as finished as a house, but I like that. Best part for us is the spaciousness and the large deck great for entertaining extended family that rent Booth Lane the same week. The only drawback is that it is not right on the water, but you get a great view and use of a dock and boat. In all our years there, Lynn and Glynnis have consistently been great hosts. If we can't find the bbq starter or the TV is on the fritz, they fix it right away. Our week together here is the highlight of our year.

Great place for a weekend
We had a great time over the Labour day long weekend this year. However, a few things were disappointing. The Look out cottage has very small bed rooms just enough for 1 double bed but there was either a queen or two doubles in each room which made it very cramped. The washroom lock was not working and from the very first day. We were never informed prior to booking that when you checked out we had to cart all our garbage and recyled items approx 20 mins to a dump site via the highway. Most cottage garbage disposals are just a couple of mins away at the most. This was extremely bothersome. The lake is beautiful and the wooded area is great for hiking. I would perhaps consider this place again ONLY if the garbage disposal situation is addressed.

We enjoy meeting new families, and couples through our rentals. All guests are made aware either prior to arrival or upon arrival that there garbage is to be taken to the local dump upon departure. The Township of Faraday Waste Disposal site is 7.3 kms, or about 15 mins away from the cottages. We provide 1 clear garbage bag to our guests upon arrival and make them aware that the local dump is close by and open even on weekends, and holidays till 5pm, except from Tuesday-Thursday. There is a small charge for cleaning of $50.00 which covers cleaning the cottage prior to arrival and clean up after. We ask that any issues within the cottage be brought to our attention immediately, in order for us to address the problem. We make every effort to make sure our guest enjoy their stay with us.

Great spot!
We were able to grab a last minute weekend rental here and couldn't have had a better time. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The lookout itself isn't very private, but there are 3 other cottages on this property with lots of privacy and great lake access. The lake is beautiful and warm with a nice sandy bottom. We really didn't want to leave. We'll definitely come back here.

Good Times at Kenslynn Cottages
For the past 10 years, we have stayed at Kenslynn Cottages in Bancroft. The folks who rent the cottages are wonderful people and try very hard to accommodate your every need. The most important feature of the cottage is Trout Farrady Lake. Very clean fresh lake water. When the sun shines or if it's cloudy, you'll appreciate mother nature at its best. The cottages are well appointed, and the kids will be kept busy indoors or outside. I've enjoyed every summer, and consider this a great destination to enjoy a specatular part of northern Ontario. The key thing to remember is you're at a cottage, not the Hilton. Eric, Glynnis, Lynne and Murray are wonderful hosts and take care of your every need. So come up and visit Bancroft, because it's a jewel that lifts our spirits every summer. The kids will appreciate it and remember the experience for years to come.
