This cottage was absolutely stunning inside and out! We stayed here for an entire week of June and found it to be one of the best cottages we have stayed at thus far. The property and cottage was very clean and had all the functions of a home found in the suburbs. The BBQ and appliances are high quality and made cooking for everyone very easy, the wifi and cable was perfect for cooling off from the heat or enjoying a rainy day without boredom. The fire pit and yard area was great for games and late night smores. The dock was a bit tricky to get to as it requires going up/down roughly 40 steps. But once at the dock you can really enjoy the beautiful lake with kayaks/canoes made available. On two of the nights we had lost power due to a major storm, unfortunately the generator requires some assistance from the owner and we were without power for 24 hours. The owner did respond promptly and reassured us the power would be back prior to needing a generator. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone that is looking to enjoy a peaceful relaxing time at a beautiful cottage.

The cottage was all that we needed for six adults and three children. The living area is large with a lovely wrap around deck, plenty of space to go off and do your own thing. The bedrooms are big and comfortable. The kitchen is large and very well appointed. Great fires pit area and activity area, the children loved the trampoline. The beach area is lovely, with soft sand and the water is clear and clean. Great diving dock and boat dock to swim to and from. Canoe and kayaks were in big demand. The couple at Fort Irwin Marina are great and the pontoon boat was an asset for viewing the rest of the lake. A great place to spend a holiday, will definitely come back.

A View but Little else!
Cleanliness

The cottage certainly did have a great view... but, as a family that included children and older people it was a complete disappointment! If you are looking to rent this cottage be WARNED that the descriptions are misleading and perhaps deliberately so. The cottage only has THREE real bedrooms that you could close a door and have privacy, otherwise all the other "sleeping" sections are in the open. There is only a narrow spiral staircase to reach the second floor where two of the three bedrooms are located. If you have children or older people with you they will have difficulty climbing up it. With little to no beach by middle of August, this cottage FAILS to either be a family destination or live up to its hype. For the cost, this cottage is overpriced, oversold and sadly disappointing.

What a view is the perfect name for this perfectly located Cottage. We had an amazing time at this truly gorgeous cottage. The place is huge and extremely well kept. It had all the necessities that we required. The only unfortunate thing was that some of the watercraft items were not in place. When we called Alex, he explained the reasoning being the early season and why they wouldn't recommend having the canoe or kayak out in the water. The trampoline was not out either. He went out of his way to make arrangements to get us the lawn chairs and other kids toys to make our stay even more comfortable. We truly had an amazing time and the kids loved the attic and the xbox games. The outside deck wraps around and allows for ample seating. Just beware of the black flies around the property as at this time of the year they were plenty. Thank you Alex and the All Season Cottage team, we look forward to visiting soon again!

Our 11 person family (including three children) had a wonderful time at this cottage. We enjoyed every part of the property (fire pit, beach, lake, dock, huge deck and wonderful working space in the kitchen). The deck created a wonderful gathering space. The kitchen with tall stools at the counter was an amazing working space for food preparations and serving meals. Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed this cottage, especially the privacy. The many steps down to the beach seemed like it could have been a problem, but it actually wasn't. Even the 4.5 year olds never complained. Our family would definitely consider this cottage again if our schedules would work. One small suggestion: The floating swimming raft could use a climbing ladder to help young and old get on top.

What a View is very well appointed, spacious cottage on a perfect sized lake. The views from the wrap around deck make it an all day treat. The hammock is a great bonus!

We loved "What a View" cottage! While the website pictures are great, the cottage is even more beautiful. There's nothing lacking at this cottage. Haliburton Lake is a perfect size and this cottage is situated quietly near the north end of the lake. The exposure provides beautiful sunshine all day long including gorgeous sunsets that we enjoyed well relaxing on the enormous deck. We brought our own motorboat which we launched just across the lake from the cottage on a public launch site. Our grandchildren love to fish and while we didn't catch anything huge, the kids caught lots of little ones, many just off the dock. We can't say enough good things about this beautiful place.

Amazing cottage

Cottage itself is absolutely stunning. Pictures don't do it justice to be honest. Great craftsmanship and care was put in to make it breathtaking. Only one issue that I believe renters should be aware of is that there are 44 wooden stairs that take you down to the part that takes you to the beach. The only reason I am mentioning this is if there are elderly or people with medical condition they will have hard time climbing up and down to get to the dock and the beach. Water was great, beach amazing cottage is very clean and supplied well. Beds were super comfy, fire pits are awesome and peace and quiet were priceless. Stairs did not affect us much however it could prove to be an issue for some. If you enjoy privacy and beauty and appreciate good craftsmanship and comforts of home this is definitely a place to stay at. Again cottage is a must see to appreciate. Huge smallmouth bass was caught from the dock. My youngest daughter (10) took the crown this year. :) Thank you very, very much for letting us enjoy your beautiful place.

All-Season Cottage Rentals' Response:

Thanks for the wonderful comments Ariana. We are thrilled to hear that your family enjoyed the cottage and hope to have you back again next summer! In addition to your comments about the stairs, we would also like to point out that there is a short, private road down to the waterfront. You cannot drive down the road, however, guests with mobility issues may find that this is an easier route down to the lake.
