Beatiful area, not too far off the beaten path. The loon is a lovely cottage, exactly as pictured. One of the nicest views I've woken up to. Also some pretty amazing fishing off the dock facing the mouth of the river. We hooked more than a few 1.5lb+ bass, loads of perch and sunfish, and we even had the pleasure of hooking a monster pike/musky. Suzanne and Jim were great, gave us all the privacy so we could really enjoy the days between ourselves. We will definitely try to come back before the summers end!

A comfy cosy cottage by the spectacular tea lake leaning to my immersion with nature. The hosts were great, informative and aided me promptly when necessary. Best cottage I have enoyed!

We really enjoyed our stay at The Loon. There were 4 of us and we slept comfortably. There is a really great fire pit almost right on the water, with a nice rocky area surrounding it. We stayed for 2 nights and had a nice fire both days. The lake was still frozen over when we were there, so we didn't get to use the water access at all, but it looked amazing with a nice big dock. I would happily suggest this place for a small group of 3-4 people looking for a relaxing cottage getaway.

We visited in the winter which truly made for a wonderful and peaceful extended weekend away from the city. Suzanne and Jim's cottage was charming and comfortable and as described. Large wrap around windows was my favourite part of this cottage which allowed for a lot of sunshine and beautiful view of the snow-covered lake. We were also really happy with the large selection of channels on cable TV, speedy wi-fi, and a cozy fireplace. Thanks for a great stay!
