Date of Stay:

Ross and company saved our vacation! We had a terrible experience with another host and Ross was able to find us this cottage last minute and save our vacation. The owners of the boathouse we very gracious and provided a huge favour for us. The cottage and Lake were perfect for our holiday. The lake was gorgeous and the cottage was very well appointed (lots of dishes, linens, activities). We cannot express our gratitude enough. Better than anything we ever expected with no notice!

Perfect little spot!

Date of Stay:

Great location. Close to Port Sydney Falls. General Store very close with great coffee and deserts. Loved being right on the water. Swam off the dock. Very roomy and inviting boathouse. Would definitely look at returning next year.

Beautiful & tranquil!

Date of Stay:

I agree with the review that said the bunk beds were uncomfortable but that's nit picking. The place is very beautiful and tranquil so I would highly recommend it. It also had everything we needed.


Date of Stay:

Lovely spot on the lake and all round great stay! All the amenities we needed, beautiful surroundings, and easy booking/check in. Would definitely return!

Amazing weekend!

Date of Stay:

We had an amazing weekend at Ross's place, the place is exactly as shown and the pictures don't do it justice. Though there was a slight complication upon our arrival, Ross and Maryrose did a superb job accommodating us late into the night and actually sweetened up our stay with extra perks! The boathouse itself is beautiful with lots to do from paddle boats to canoeing to hiking to just relaxing and appreciating the beautiful scenery. The entire home was super cozy, clean and well equipped with everything you need from exotic spices in the kitchen to extra bath towels and blankets for every room. I highly recommend a stay at Ross's for any occasion! Thanks a tonne!!!
