Site fort agréable et hôtes très accueillants! Nous avons bien apprécié notre séjour...surtout les eaux chaudes du Tea Lake!
Jim and Suzie are absolutely top-notch hosts! They did a wonderful job setting us up in the Dragonfly caravan as we waited for the Hummingbird, even lending us their fire pit and sharing their spare room in the main cottage. The Dragonfly is surprisingly roomy on the inside, and the beds are quite comfortable. We're looking forward to spending the rest of the week in this Muskoka paradise :-)
Beautiful property. We had a great time and Jim was a awesome host.
We had an awesome time at tea lake! Loved staying in the retro Dragonfly trailer. Super cute and clean. Suzanne and Jim are great hosts! :) :) :)
My husband, kids & I stayed in The Dragonfly for half of a week, and had we not already made other plans, would have easily stayed on longer (thanks for offering Jim & Suzie!). The kids absolutely loved it on Tea Lake, swimming for hours daily, going for walks, absorbing the fresh air, and of course having the opportunity to drive a tractor with Jim :) Suzie & Jim are such wonderful hosts and make you feel right at home on their gorgeous property! They give you your own private space when needed, however are instantly available to help you at the drop of a hat. The Big Chute was within walking distance & our kids loved the large marine railway (and of course the ice-cream that followed). The photos of The Dragonfly are very accurate, and the trailer is a very cozy & clean place to stay (sure beats camping!). We look forward to our next vacation & would definitely stay with Jim & Suzie in a heartbeat (next time bringing chicken wings for a big cookout!). Thanks for creating memories for our children ~ we had a blast!!! All the best, the Meadus Clan :)
We stayed at the Dragon Fly for the weekend and we didn't want to leave come Sunday. Suzanne and Jim made us feel right at home and because of them being so great we are looking to book for the September long weekend. I would definitely recommend this place to others.
This is our second time at Tea Lake staying at Suzie and Jim's, and the kids ABSOLUTELY loved it! The lake was warm and very swimmable, the area is quiet and relaxing. There is a store nearby for the replenishing of foodstuffs and the purchasing of ice creams. Definitely highly recommended! We will return, and next time we will bring anti-mosquito spray too.
