Because of our small family resort size cancellations can affect our business significantly therefore we have a good reason for a strict cancellation policy. However if you have to cancel your booking at Lakeside Cottages we will try and amend your cottage dates subject to our availability and carry over any monies paid for a period of 12 months and re - booking your cottage for the following season. Please note we will require at least 8 weeks notice to do so.

If the cancellation falls within the 8 weeks then no refunds shall apply. Please note the only time a refund will be made is when the cottage is re-rented for the entire original dates booked less any administration fees that may apply.

We reserve the right to reject any application or terminate any reservations at any time should we feel the need to do so. A reservation is a firm contract with Lakeside Cottages with no refunds for late arrivals or early departures.

Lakeside Cottages is located 15 kms north of Peterborough on the east side of Katchewanooka Lake.
