“This tiny house met all our expectations. It looks small on the outside, but inside is so much space, a beautiful full size kitchen with all the appliances you need, lots of windows for natural light, a spacious bathroom with all the things you need and 2 comfortable sleeping areas and a space to lounge. I would absolutely recommend staying here if you want to check out tiny house living. Joe and Mary Lou are very kind and communicate very quickly and direct and Joe can give you all the info you need on tiny houses. Also Barry's Bay is a great small town for a short vacation.”
Cozy luxury in the deep Canadian wild nature. Hikers paradise with lots of trails leading to breathtaking lookouts. Dock and water access is in a quiet and private little cove on the lake where you can disappear for hours. All the amenities close by.
“Such a breathtaking view to wake up to! A simple place on a quiet lake, with very few powerboats; felt homey, safe, family-oriented, charming. We heard loons at night on most nights, and lots of other bird songs, which was incredible. The A/C and ceiling fan in the main space were much appreciated, as were the big comfy couches. The canoe and paddleboat were a real treat! One thing to note is that the waterfront access is not direct from the yard, there is a road bisecting the property from the waterfront, which is not depicted in the photos. We were surprised about this when we arrived. The place is overall excellent, although a few things were a little worse for wear: no sharp knives; BBQ was rusty inside (we didn't feel comfortable putting any food directly on the grill); non-stick cookware was scratched up; random stuff lying around in the grounds (it's fine if you stay in the main area by the fire pit and just face the water, though); most of the plastic muskoka chairs around the property were broken; pillows were lumpy and flat (bring your own); no kitchen linens nor paper towel provided. While we were cooking, some grease buildup from the overhead vent began melting and dripping into our food; we removed the mesh cover, cleaned it, and put it back on. There is a Chromecast, although no instructions are provided for how to use it. We spent 90 mins with Google Chat Help on our first night doing a bunch of troubleshooting to try and get it to work (my partner works with A/V, so it shouldn't have been this hard). It did end up working, but it seems finnicky and instructions would've been great. Just an FYI: the bugs were really bad when we were there at the end of June (as a result, we didn't eat outside at all). Some kind of enclosed/mesh outdoor tent on the deck for bugs and shade (there's no shade on the property until about 2/3pm) would make this place an 11/10. Lastly, the local trails are not maintained nor well marked, except for Gun Mountain, which was a great. In short, the good far outweighed the less-good! This place is a gem.”
Cozy cottage on the York River located 10 minutes outside of Bancroft. A perfect retreat for the avid ATV rider, snowmobiler, cyclist, hiker and fisherman. Minutes from Hastings Heritage trail system and several lakes. 45 minute drive to Algonquin park. Hike Eagles nest for a breathtaking view. Our one level home features a wood stove. Firewood provided by hosts.
“It will be hard for you to find a better Airbnb than this. I've stayed many times over the past few years. The reliability is felt in the following: everything works, it is always pristine, in the winter the drive is shovelled and in the summer the fire pit is ready to go. The property is a beautiful one for nature lovers: the river in the back can be used for canoeing and fishing, the gazebo is a peaceful way to eat outdoors if there are bugs, the birdwatching is always great with the bird feeder filled (as long as the squirrels allow). The rural living is enjoyable with comfortable beds and blankets, great cooking space with lots of tools to use, and an indoor wood burning stove and lots of wood, and the entire property is maintained in an impeccable manner. I'm hoping Roger and Julie are thinking of a Riverscape "twin"- the world could use two Riverscapes! And as a final note, the maple syrup and pancake mix is always appreciated. Thanks Julie and Roger, see you next time.”
