Through another door off the dining area you will find the large BBQ and stairs lead you down to the dock and the waterside decks where you have an assortment of colourful loungers and Muskoka chairs for relaxing and sunset viewing.

A newly added feature in the living room is the gas fireplace on the wall. There's nothing better on a cool evening in the fall/spring or a blustery wintery day than to curl up with a book and cup of hot cocoa in front of the fire. On the main floor of the cottage there is a bedroom with a king sized bed and an ensuite bathroom with a shower. Also on the main floor is a two piece bathroom off of the dining area.

We had high expectations coming to the cottage after seeing the pictures. The cottage was better than the pictures because the pillows and and towels were luxurious! We felt pampered day and night. The cottage is very close to their neighbours but we were welcomed by them and given a boat ride around the lake. We felt like we belonged.

Just wanted to say how pleased we were with the whole experience. It was our first rental and we were so excited to spend our honeymoon at the cottage. The rental was an awesome spot and we had so much fun going into the towns for lunches and dinners!!

Gorgous experience! The place is clean and well maintained. It has everything we need that made us feel at home. The landscaping makes the cottage very attractive. The lake view is great and the water is not deep which is good for kids (5-7 year old)to swim. We had lots of fun during our stay. Sauble Beach is just 10 minutes away by driving and Bruce Pennuisular National Park about 1.5 hour drive. The kids enjoyed kyaking on the lake and they love the hottub especially. For sure will come back.

We enjoyed every minute we were there - everything you need is provided for you. The cottage is beautiful inside and out - surrounded by lovely gardens and trees and located right on Chesley Lake- the view from the cottage is incredible.
Having the dock and the fire pit right by the water was great - the use of the kayak and the canoe were lots of fun.

Our experience was amazing, we've stayed in cottages before, but none were so totally equiped for comfort. we've always had to take so many things along to be comfortable but this was a home from home, with the added scenery, hottub, right down to the comfortable beds. Thank you so much for sharing your little bit of paradise with our family. Even though the weather wasn't great to start, the cottage was totally equiped to handle that with the hottub, and the DVD,and tv. Next year, we certainly plan to stay longer..

Great place for family gateway with amazing location. Truly beautiful gateway with great amenities - almost better than home! We loved it so much that we're already looking into booking it next year for another great week of vacation. Perfectly clean and ready for anyone that has children. I would recommend it in a heart beat for anyone that wants to relax and spend some quiet time with the family.

Wow, what a spot! Excellent place with great amenities, easy to get to, small and big kid friendly with big comfy beds, plenty of room and a well geared kitchen. Took us about 5 minutes to feel right at home and spent the rest of our time enjoying ourselves.

This cottage has more than you see on the web. The recreation room in the basement is not even talked about. The kids loved it and all want to go back.
The fuse ball table and hot tub were a hit, especially since it was October weather. We had an awesome stay at Chesley Lake.

This is a great cottage for a large family, or in our case multiple families vacationing together. Also excellent for those vacationing with infants, we had our 7 month old daughter with us and it was really convenient to have a crib and highchair included.
The cottage itself is very comfortable, with all the amenities of home. Large, well appointed bedrooms with lots of sleeping space. Great dock area with lots of comfy chairs. Nice fire pit as well, it was wonderful to toast marshmallows and hot dogs in the evenings. After the kiddies were sound asleep the adults were able to have some wine and relax in the outdoor hot tub, it is right on the deck and was clean and fabulous! The businesspeople among us appreciated the wireless internet to check in with the office from time to time, and the sports fan liked the satellite tv to check in on all the latest scores.
The lake bottom is mucky, I would bring water shoes next time, but off the dock is great for swimming. There was some boat traffic but nothing bothersome, the cottage isn't tremendously private but we had no issues with noise or neighbours, and the lake was peaceful.
The cottage is also located just a 10 minute drive from Sauble Beach so we had a lot of fun excursions to the beach. Went to Owen Sound for dinner one night, it was only a 15 minute drive. The guys in our group enjoyed golf at a few nearby courses and the gals had a spa day. There is enough to do in the area to keep everyone happy!
Overall a great experience, we would definitely rent this place again.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Our Families had a fantastic stay at your cottage. The fact that we had 2 families going we needed the cottage to be big enough for all of us. So we did not feel like we were sitting on top of each other. Well the cottage is HUGE, and we had plenty of room for all of us. The cottage it self was beautiful, and view was spectacular. I enjoyed every morning before the house woke up my morning tea out on the deck. What a way to wake up every morning. Just everything about our stay was great. It made haveing a 4yrs, 3yrs, and 9month baby with us vacationing a breeze. The fact that you had a crib & high chair already there was great! We loved our stay, thanks so much for having a beautful cottage that you rent out!
