Lakeside Testimonials

  • I just want to thank you again for a wonderful vacation with my family. What can I say that we have stayed at several cottages in Ontario but have never experienced such a warm welcoming as we did at your resort you guys are great. Mike thank you for the fishing it was all down to your clever advice in catching the fish. My new PB was all down to you thank you again. I wish we could stay all summer and cannot wait to return again.

  • Our second vacation to Lakeside resort for our two families for Thanksgiving weekend it was superb! The kids had so much fun in all the different activities fishing shuffleboard ping pong eagle spotting canoeing kayaking campfires and story telling. I do believe we have had the vacation of our life's and extremely relaxing for us as well as engaging in all the Lakeside activities and above all therapeutic especially for the people from hectic and stressful city life. Everyone enjoyed the cottage thank you Mike & Eileen.

  • Memories are forever in our thoughts! This is the place to build those family memories in our minds forever. While staying at Lakeside Cottages our daughter and her boyfriend went for a canoe ride to Eagle Island and came back engaged how romantic is that! After experiencing many cottage resorts this is the best place for my family. What a view! What a beach! What great hosts! See you next year and all the years to come!

  • We arrived a day late due to flight delays in Scotland we were very tired and what did we find on arrival at Lakeside Cottages the warmest welcome the coziest spotless cottage and the most comfortable beds!

  • It only seems like yesterday Mike was offering to help us unload. Chard Amy and myself mastered the skill of fishing. Nancy enjoyed Mike's campfire quiz and meeting up with friends from last year. Our first stay here was in 1991 with all the family now it's Nancy and myself enjoying relaxing fishing the sunsets our local shopping days out. Sitting by the lake takes us away from busy life styles at home. Many thanks Mike & Eileen for the Wedding Anniversary and my Birthday gift. See you both next year for 2 weeks!
