The bleach is perfect for young children. The docks served as a great location to dive from and the lily pad proved fun for all. The cottage is large enough to house a large crowd.and we will definitely be returning next year.

This was our 3rd consecutive year renting both cottages at Tall Timbers. Its an ideal spot for us. A relatively short drive up. Lake was very warm and great for swimming. The lillypad should either be cleaned regularly or removed as ducks use it as a washroom. 2 BBQ's provided is great but it would be great if they are cleaned professionally a few times per year. Ample rooms and washrooms and a large dining area in the main cottage are a great bonus. The dishwashers may need a maintenance check they were not very effective. Beds are a tad too soft; mattresses could be firmer. Overall, the cottages are great, but I just think some of the amenities need an upgrade due to significant use.

Our group of 8 stayed in the large cottage. Very private, peaceful location. Lots of room for all kinds of activities indoors and out. This is the best beach and lake access we've experienced in many years of cottage rentals although the constant presence of the ducks along the shore and all over the Lilypad was disconcerting from a sanitation standpoint. Lovely views of the lake from many rooms and the sunroom but all the windows are in need of a good cleaning to bring this cottage up to the standard one would expect for this price range. Lots of Muskoka chairs on the patio and deck, however we missed having the availability table/chairs/umbrella on either the deck or patio for outdoor meals. WIFI doesn't work well or at all in some sections of the house, for example the TV in the Games room can't access WIFI. Great outdoor patio and deck area for access to the beach and lake. Unusual cottage layout in that the most practical kitchen is in the basement, so it's two floors down from the majority of the bedrooms, but it works well for young people who don't mind lots of stairs.

Hello! This was our 2nd year renting both cottages for our large extended family of 18-20 people. Usually we avoided renting 2 separate cottages in the past but our experience with Tall Timbers made the 2 cottage rental ideal for our family. Lots of great things to experience: 1. The lake is great for swimming. It’s generally pretty calm, and has a minimum of boat activity. 2. Ample space, rooms, bathrooms, and a large table in the basement of the main cottage so everyone can eat together. 3. Beach is large for a cottage facility and ample space for a volleyball or badminton game 4. We didn’t use it a lot but the games room provides a lot of options for activity Some opportunities for improvement: 1. The mattresses are probably due for an upgrade as many were too soft and some family members complained of lack of back support while sleeping. 2. A vendor came to mow the lawn while we were renting. We don’t see why this can’t be done between renters to prevent noise disturbance 3. Although the hot tub was cleaned in time for our arrival, we used it daily and by 3/4 through our stay. We felt it needed another re-fresh.

All-Season Cottage Rentals' Response:

Thanks for your review! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time at the cottage. Quickly to touch on lawn care, there are hundreds of rental cottages in our area that change-over within a 4 - 6 window on Friday's and Saturday's. With only a small number of lawn care companies in the area, it is simply not possible to serve all of these properties during change-over. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable in some cases but we appreciate guests patience and do everything in our power to ensure that the inconvenience is minimal.

Thanks for your review! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time at the cottage. To quickly touch on your point about lawn mowing, unfortunately, with 100's of cottages changing over during a short time frame on Friday's and Saturday's it is not always possible to source a company available to come during change-overs. For those lucky enough to have a company scheduled during change-overs, there are sometimes weather related delays that are unavoidable. While all efforts are taken to reduce and disruptions during guests stays, sometimes it is unavoidable.

17 of us, including 5 under 10 years, enjoyed this property the first week of July. It had so much to offer our group - sandy beach and a fishing pond for the kids, good swimming frontage, boci ball, fabulous pool room, loads of space and a great downstairs kitchen with extra long table that sat all of us for our evening feasts. The property manager Tessa was excellent at addressing the few issues that came up. A rare property for a large group.

Great family vacation at the beautiful Tall Timbers. Family reunion after COVID lock down. Owners were great hosts and gave us all the privacy we needed, but were there right away with any issues we had. We had one very minor issues that was addressed right away by the owner. We had an issue with our car battery and again they were there to help us out. The cottages were exactly as advertised, the sandy beach was very safe, clean and a huge hit with the 1,2,4,7 year old kids. Covered dock was the main entertainment area and having morning coffee on the dock and watching the sunset on the docks was amazing. Both Cottages huge, were very clean, well stocked kitchens, spectacular views from the wrap around deck and covered deck. Would recommend this to any large family or groups looking for a great spacious place in North Country.

Our extended family has been renting cottages in Ontario for over 15 years so we know what we like and what is good. Tall Timbers met all our expectations. Large facilities, great dock and beach and the lake was swimmer friendly. Ample rooms. Developed a good daily contact with the owner, Jackie. She is very friendly and trust worthy. The only suggestion I might have for improvement is the state of the 2 bbq’s. The grills could use a good cleaning and perhaps some investment for new ones. Otherwise a great location! We loved it!

Our family had a beautiful week and enjoyed all of the outdoor amenities this cottage has to offer. The beach was perfect for all of our entertainment including our daily volleyball games. The fire-pit is located on the beach with lots of space...we even got lucky and hardly seen a mosquito at night. We have a large family and it is not easy finding a cottage that has enough bedrooms, but Tall Timbers has a total of 10 which worked out perfect for us. The kids were disappointed that the water trampoline was broken and the hot tub not in service which we did not find out until we arrived. However they did enjoy the kid's fishing pond. The only other issue was the cleanliness of the cottage...not quite up to our standards. Jackie lives onsite and was very kind and considerate checking in on us daily. We have been renting cottages for over 15 years and as the family grows it gets harder to find a location, but the Tall Timbers property has so much space inside and out, lots of privacy and very close to town. Definitely a place we would love to come back to!

It's perfect for our large group. Awesome cottage as to location, privacy, amenities, cleanliness, and a property manager made in heaven. She's terrific, so helpful, welcoming and kind. The furniture collection and decor inside the 2 cottages are so beautiful. Impressive. Planning to go back.
