  • What a great spot! With the short drive from Toronto, this is the perfect getaway. Jim and Suzanne are amazing hosts and the energy on the property is spectacular. Waking up and seeing the lake every morning was a definite highlight. The cottage is adorable, clean and the fireplace made for a very cozy fall weekend. We will definitly return! Thanks Jim, Suzanna and Marley!

    I strongly recommend this place if you want a romantic getaway, having fun with friends and enjoy the beauty of the nature!
    The owners are so friendly and helpful!
    Thank you again Suzanne!

  • Suzanne and Jim's cottage was a delight: well appointed, cozy, and with a lovely view of the lake. They were warm, helpful hosts who also knew to respect our privacy. We had the perfect Fall weekend in the country with our children and our dog. Thank you!

    October 2012
  • We had such a wonderful stay at The Loon cottage. The view of Tea Lake is spectacular and is the first thing you see when you get out of bed in the morning. Jim and Suzanne are great hosts, wanting to make sure your stay is comfortable and relaxing. They even invited us over for a glass of wine! We would definitely book The Loon again and for a longer stay next time!

    October 2012
  • Suzanne's cottages are beautiful and were amazing for our stay. Not only are the surroundings stunning but the hospitality we were shown was unbeatable. Our cottages we equipped with wi-fi, cable a fireplace and lots of sleeping room. And our hosts were happy to say hello and even invited us into their home for a potluck! Not only would I recommend this cottage to others but I plan to come back. Very easy to book, Suzanne is helpful and available.

Suzie and Jim were lovely hosts - very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We can’t wait to go back! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to rent a cottage. Thanks again Suzie and Jim :)

    August 2012
  • This was our first Muskoka experience and to be honest the bar has been set quite high. We fell in love with the whole experience: an easy drive from Toronto, far enough from the Highway to feel you are in the wild but not too much to make it inconvenient; walk into the little cottage and find that everything you need is available (even WiFi!) and then looking out the windows and falling in love with the views of Tea Lake. We spent our days jumping in the lake, having warm starry nights by the fire pit, canoeing around the lake and taking it all in.

    June 2012
  • Had a great weekend at Suzanne and Jims beautiful cosy cottage on tea lake. Would definitely go back!
