We loved the location and the two seating areas off the dock, great for coffee in the morning and drinks in the afternoon. The hot tub was a bonus as on the rainy days the kids went from hot tube to lake. Lots of movies and games for the rainy days. Well worth the rental fee. Owners were extremely responsive when we need to call.

There are several things we really like about this cottage as evidenced by our decision to return this year. We love the deck and furniture at the shore. The swimming is great off the dock and the angled ladder for getting in and out of the water is excellent. We love the hot tub and made good use of it, almost once a day but for our final very rainy day. The sun room is pretty and comfortable and we enjoy the view out the dining room window - it makes eating meals an extra pleasure. The fire pit is great. The water and shoreline were quieter this year than last as several cottages were unoccupied during our week long stay and we enjoyed the peace. We had a few concerns this time though. The stove top isn't working well at all and might even pose a safety concern. The top left burner runs on high - it's not possible to turn the heat down without turning it off - which makes cooking difficult and is scary. The top right burner doesn't heat well. This made cooking tricky and frustrating. Neither the VCR or the DVD player are working well and caused frustration and disappointment on our rainy days and in the evenings when we wanted to relax and enjoy some movies together. With regards to the VCR, only one of the five tapes we tried worked as the picture kept going black. We weren't sure if this was a problem with the VCR itself or the age of the tapes since it did work for us once. We only tried to play two DVDs since the two we tried kept getting stuck and wouldn't play. It would make sense to fix this problem or not advertise the library of tapes and DVDs - but it is a nice feature when things work. There were burnt out lightbulbs in several lamps and no spare bulbs could be found to replace them. It would be a plus to have a second bed in the cottage that has a good, modern mattress. My friend has now tried each of the second beds and found both of them uncomfortable. Apart from these difficulties we enjoyed our stay at Shillum Cottage.

Shillum was a perfect place for us. We had everything that we needed and it is very well equipped. The only thing that let us down was that Muskoka chairs and a squeaky master bed. Other than that, this place is perfect!

Our family had our annual get-together at Shillum. We had so much fun. From a new baby to grandparents, we were all very comfortable. The weather was great. The sunroom was the perfect family room. Lots of swimming, canoeing and kayaking. Beautiful sunsets. The owners were wonderful and responsive. Could maybe use a ladder on the dock for easy in-and-out of the water??

This was our first stay at Shillum and we would most definitely return. The cottage was cozy, clean and spacious. We loved the sunroom and dinner table facing the lake. The well treed lot provided much privacy and much appreciated shade at strategic places on the deck. There were friendly neighbours, beautiful sunsets, loons everyday,good swimming. We found everything so child friendly for our 3 year old. The water was shallow off the dock and we also made use of a little beach on the side. We wished the beach area were larger and perhaps with more of the sand cleared in the water. We also felt a ladder off the dock would be helpful. As well, we found the lake to be very motorized which often cut into the peacefulness of the environment. Our son on the other hand loved that aspect. So there is something here for everyone and I would highly recommend this beautiful cozy cottage.
