“Comfortable, rustic cottage, perfect for an unplugged family holiday”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My family spent a lovely week at the Bakers' cottage this August. It reminded me of my family's childhood cottage: pleasantly rustic, but clean and with all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay.

The cottage’s location, on a point of land projecting out into Mackenzie Lake, meant there was a more or less continuous breeze that kept the mosquitoes at bay.

Every morning we sat and drank our morning tea on the covered porch overlooking the lake, while hummingbirds entertained us with their aerial battles, fighting for control of the sugar-water feeder.

Our young boys enjoyed the simple pleasures of swimming, canoeing and playing around the cottage and grounds. There is also a small river nearby that we explored in the canoe, investigating the beavers’ dams, lodges and marshes.

Just offshore behind the bonfire pit, is a good fishing spot, where my sons and I drifted in the canoe, casting our lines in, catching bass after bass.

The cottage is only a 40-minute drive to Algonquin Park’s East Gate. So, one day we spent the whole day there, taking some of the guided hikes and also a naturalist’s presentation in the evening.

The Bakers’ cottage is great for a simple, unplugged (but, yes, there is electricity), family holiday. Our boys have already told us that we’re coming back again next year.

“Lovely cabin on a beautiful property”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The Bakers' cottage is homey and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The property is beautiful and private with lots of little spots to sit and enjoy the lake, birds and sunshine. My dog was in heaven! The campfire is situated up on a lovely spot that overlooks the lake and is quite magical on a cloudless night. The one downside was that the dock had been damaged the previous winter and had not been fixed before my stay in June, but there was still great swimming off the flat rocks and my 4 year old niece had no problem enjoying herself in the water immediately. The veranda is huge and has a large picnic table that makes bbqing and eating outside easy. I was sad to leave such a perfect little spot!

Hello Amy. We were sorry that the dock had been seriously damaged by the ice over the winter and we did not have time to get the new one in place for your stay in June. Now it is there! Have a look at the pictures. I think you - and your dog - would enjoy it again even more now. Brian Baker
