This is our 4th time at this cottage and it's always the perfect choice. West facing means long days and gorgeous sunsets. The cottage is also on a bay which means calmer water and more privacy. The cottage itself is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy summer. Beds are all super comfy! Linens and towels provided too. We hope to return again and again!

We have now stayed at Belle Wood for the second year in a row. The cottage has everything you could need or want. Located 2-hours from Toronto, 15 minutes from Minden with 2 grocery stores and basic shops. There is a strong WiFi signal and consistent A/C throughout, super comfy mattresses and bedding, plus a kitchen filled with anything you could need. The outdoor dining table faces the sunset for an orange haze as the day ends. The cottage is located in a bay for added quiet and calm waters. It's our favourite getaway for sure!

Our stay at Belle Wood Cottage was wonderful. I'll give it a 9/10 only because there was construction on a cottage right next door that really dampened the peacefulness of our getaway, but this was no fault of Belle Wood Cottage. Thankfully they quit early most days. Other than that, everything about our stay was wonderful. The inlet setting was peaceful with very little boat traffic, the dock was west facing so all day sun (the umbrella on the dock was most appreciated!), and the water is deep and clear for diving off the dock. If stairs are an issue for you, this is not the cottage for you - there are multiple stairs to get down to the water from the cottage - but after a day or two we got used to it - it was a nice workout! Our favourite part was the fire pit deck halfway down to the water. We spent every evening there. The outdoor furniture was enormously comfortable. The cottage itself is also very comfortable with lots of places to sit and relax, and multiple spaces for kids and adults alike. The only real issues we encountered were water pressure and temperature difficulties with the showers, and oddly there's no shower in the master bath. But it didn't bother us much. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the kitchen is well equipped. Bring your own spices, oils and condiments. Coffee maker is a drip machine which made very good coffee. Bring ground coffee; filters are provided. We've stayed at a lot of cottages over the years and this one was by far our favourite. We felt very at home and relaxed. Thank you, Belle Wood! We will be back.

We had a wonderful two weeks at this stunning property. Plenty of great spots to relax outside. Excellent swimming off the dock. Décor inside is charming and this lake house has everything you need for a great family holiday. Awesome sunsets and stargazing too.

This was our fourth time here. That should say it all. We've now been here more than the owners. It feels like our place. We have simply never stayed in a better place anywhere. We will return, again.

Gull Haven is Heaven

Gull haven was a tremendously comfortable, well appointed cottage on the lake. It was large, clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. No detail was missed or overlooked. We simply didn’t want to leave. The lake is large, clean and swimmable. It was complete with a resident family of loons.who were visible and heard every day. Our only issue is the wording on the listing which referred to a “large jacuzzi tub” in the en-suite bathroom. It was indeed large, but not a jacuzzi. There were no jets. Also, the listing mentioned a two person kayak. It was only a single person kayak. We were looking forward to both of these items and were a little disappointed they were not as described. The listing should be revised. But nonetheless our stay was wonderful. We hope to return next year.

Fabulous cottage. Nice lakefront. Would have loved a shallow entry but overall a great experience with family.

This is more a luxurious lakeside house than a cottage. The rooms are spacious and well furnished and there are many bedrooms and areas within the home for privacy and relaxation. The views of the lake, along with the sunsets, are stunning. My only recommendation would be to add some umbrella or shade protection onto the dock area (which is in full sun most of the day), and also some type of boat that can take two people, be it canoe, kayak or paddleboat (currently there is only a one person kayak and a stand up paddleboard).
