  • Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your space with our family. We made new memories and all possible with your home. The cottage was such a great space, well thought out. And the lake was wonderful.

  • We have just arrived home from one of the most enjoyable summer vacations we have ever had . As we approached the cottage we dropped the boat in the water at a convenient public launch and my wife and son in law took the boat and met up with us at the cottage a few minutes later. From the time we turned down the tree canopied driveway and saw the landscaping , rockery and welcoming paddle on the screen door we knew we had made a great choice. That was just the beginning, Upon entry to the cottage we were surprised at how open and large it was. It was spotlessly clean and had every amenity you could ever wish for . My daughter liked how no matter where you were in the kitchen you could still keep and eye on the kids . As we unpacked our family of 8 people there was more than enough room for everyone as the 3 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms provided everything we could ask for. If you happen to have bad weather it would be impossible not to find something to do whether it be watching a movie, playing air hockey, pool or relaxing in the sauna. As always the kitchen becomes the meeting place and the Kennedy Cottage kitchen will not disappoint either the chef of the day or those who are chatting up the cook from the adjacent sit at bar. As we stepped out from .any one of the 3 patio doors on the main level we were met with a child friendly wrap around beautiful composite deck. As we made our way down the stairs of the deck to the lake we passed by another deck and comfortable seating area as well as a well located fire pit where you can see the lake or look straight up and see a sky full or stars . Seeing the shooting stars is impossible in the city but happens nightly here. And finally we got to the lake where the view is simply breathtaking. A massive flat part of the Canadian shield provides your entry to a clean clear lake where swimming , skiing, wakeboarding sailing, canoeing , kayaking or just jumping off the dock awaits you. We went fishing every day and caught bass, perch , and did not expect to reel in a catfish. The lake is large and has many inlets and bays which give it much character. A trip to town is ten minutes away so no need to run out of anything. Thanks Steve and Redstone Rentals for sharing your piece of paradise with our family.

  • Just wanting to let you know on behalf of my whole family that we had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Kennedy Cottage. Everything was just great and so beautiful. There was new snow when we arrived and it was a winter wonderland. The weekend was extremely cold, but we did get out to do some winter sports. Did a wonderful sleigh ride with the whole family on the Saturday as well.

    My father who was celebrating his 80th birthday was over the moon with the property - he wants to buy it!! Sunday and Monday brought blue, blue skies, and cold temperatures, so all the snow on the trees and icicles remained there for the duration of the weekend which was SO beautiful to look out at from all the large picture windows!! We ate wonderful meals and played lots of pool, games and relaxed - couldn't have asked for more. The Kennedys have a beautiful lake home, beautifully decorated and maintained, with all the amenities you could wish for, as well as stunning views of the lake!!

    Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to the Kennedys for the lovely note and welcome gifts that they left for us. They were very much appreciated and didn't stay on the scene for very long! It was an ideal place for our family to pass this momentuous event and we "banned" all cell phones and other communication devices for the kids, so that was lovely as well - a real "family" weekend!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, allowing us to have such wonderful memories of this weekend!!!
