“Beautiful location, looking over lake. Mornings and evenings were a delight.”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our first evening was idyllic: sitting on the dock watching the sun set over the lake - beautiful. It was the outside space that set this place apart. We had the run of the lakeside garden and, in particular, there were three decked seating areas overlooking the lake. Access to a barbecue was welcome, as was use of the canoe - you don't get this at most places and this is why we chose this accommodation. We used the BBQ several times and had a great time paddling out on the lake.
Susan was a delight when we arrived straight from the airport. We had no food, as there had been no opportunity for shopping, so she went out to see what she could get for us - this was customer care above & beyond the call of duty. Her provisions (no charge!) saw us through to the next day.
The apartment itself was spacious and secluded - you could have walked around undressed because the only view of it was from the lake. If you want a relaxing, bucolic, secluded place then look no further.
The accommodation was fairly basic and wasn't stylish (fridge and water cooler in the lounge were odd) or modern but was clean and functional. However, for most people, I guess that the accommodation is of little importance other than a place to sleep - it's all about the outdoors here. Unfortunately heavy rain meant we were trapped indoors for a day and a half, resulting in us discovering that the settee was less than comfortable.
A lot of thought had been put into what was provided. This would be excellent for families because the was a range of games available, along with guides and info on the area.
Frankly there is little in the surrounding area other than more lakes. Kearney seems to be the town that time forgot and we struggled to find somewhere open, even in July. We had planned to have our breakfast there the first morning and, having just landed, do some shopping. No way - we had to drive back to Huntsville to find somewhere open. We tried one of the local bars but found ourselves the only people in there. Kearney is not so much sleepy as catatonic!
After busy months at work and a long flight, this was exactly the peace and relaxation we needed. It was perfect for our needs.

“The view is breathtaking. Of all our options, we couldnt have picked a better home away from home.”
Reviewed 2 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had never experienced scenery quite like this. The formula of Sand Lake being one of the largest in Ontario combined with the sensational apartment style cottage literally elevated our cottage experience. Often we would interrupt each other mid sentence just to point outside to the lake, the island in the distance (accessible by boat) or stars. Susan is very sweet and made herself available to any questions or queries we had mid stay. Discovering little gems like a 4 seater paddle boat with sun canopy really separated this place from others. We relished the cozy areas like the bbq patio spot and the what we call the breakfast nook just one level above the dock. A slice of Heaven that stays with us long afterwards. Thank you Susan, from a very happy couple!

“Our honeymoon ”

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Muskoka wolf this past weekend for our honeymoon and could not have been happier, the view from the two bedroom suite were spectacular, and the views from the dock were even better. The owner was amazing and even had a little surprise ready for us when we got there. I will be staying again and again and again.

“Very Beautiful Spot.”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a good week at this rental. It was a good location to go on day trips to Huntsville, Bala to the Cranberry bog, and to find hidden water falls and rapids.

“Great all around experience”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This lakefront rental was absolutely amazing! The owners Susan and Eric where great hosts and really made our stay extra special. Eric really went above and beyond to help us with fishing,renting an extra canoe,and anything else we needed. We had all the comforts and privacy of having our own place but also the option of having someone available if we needed anything. This was a great vacation and the price was also very reasonable. We will definitely stay here again!

Thank you for taking time to write the review. We have explained to you the things were in the process of repair such as part of the dock was damaged by the winter, and it was removed. yes, the water level may be shallow at the time of your stay. but the previous guests were able to swim off the existing dock.

The hot tub temperature is not as high as we wish,etc. Prior to your arrival (on your tour around the property), we pointed out those issues to you.However you were happy to see the rest of the property is up to and beyond your expectation and you told us during and after your stay that you had a great week. I wish you would review the property in a more balanced approach, such as you have used the fire pit to conduct a late night concert, it seems that your guests(registered or unregistered ) were having a good time. and we had bought a new fridge and beverage fridge to suite your large group. However, we appreciate your input and we're in the process of bringing this property to the better shape. the hot tub is running and current guests are using it now.
