Description from owner

Description

A lovely cottage, in the blissful village of Windermere on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka, Ontario.

An architect renovated intimate space, rustic architecture finished in a romantic contemporary style. You will feel right at home, right away. Steps from the golf course, the Windermere beach, Windermere House hotel across the road.

We supply basics like olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, starter kit of coffee and tea, milk, cream, sugar and you can get pretty much all the groceries you might need to cook at home from the nearby Taylor Farm Store 5 minute drive away, or basics like milk, bread at the Windermere Marina.

Windermere is a great place to do nothing, and plenty of it.

A couple of notes about the property: We have full WIFI available, and it is also available at the hotel across the street. The house is not fully air-conditioned, most nights it isn't needed. For those occasional hot nights, we have a small air-conditioning unit in the second floor master bedroom.

House rules

We want you to enjoy the quiet relaxing peace of the village of Windermere. We are happy for you to have a quiet drink with a guest or two on the porch, but anything that would disturb the neighbors, (that's me) is just not on. The house is tiny, not suitable for parties.

Beautiful cottage rental, so spacious and homely. Great to return to after visiting the local area. Will have no problem recommending to friends and family.

Steps from a beach, we spent most of our week reading due to bad weather. The cottage lacked nothing, except WiFi and we enjoyed catching up on John Reabus!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much, if I could have changed the weather I would have. I am working on improving the WIFI. Glad you enjoyed Rebus, he is my husbands favorite character.

Owner's reply: It was so great to have you as a guest and glad you had a great time. Thanks for this review, it lets guest know in advance better what to expect than the yes no options in the Trip Advisor system. While there is WIFI available on the property, the signal varies at the cottage. Porch the best place to get it, and of course there is WIFI at the hotel right across the street. As for the cooling, it is generally enough to take the edge off when it is hot, but you hit the hottest night of the summer. In August we generally have warm days and cool nights.
