The cottage is charming and rustic with three nice sized bedrooms. It has a nice deck and dock which you can eat at. We had dinner a few times on the dock which was nice. The cottage is centrally located, only a 6 minute drive to Minden and a 30 minute drive to Haliburton which a…

We are happy that you enjoyed Whistlewind cottage. I forget to mention in the write-up that it is a quiet lake with few motor boot which is peaceful - and the loons and cranes like it too. Switching from netflix to playing board games and cards or sitting by a campfire in the fire bell on the dock can be very fun and relaxing though the thought of unplugging can be strange at first. We are glad you enjoyed disconnecting. Hope you saw the stars.

Private, situated on a small lake. The cottage has everything you need - grocery store is just a 10 minute drive away. Enjoyed the kayak and canoe that were available for use. Nice dock leading out to the lake. Highly recommend!

We had very clear directions and found lots of information left by Susan. We were not left wondering about anything.

It was a great stay, the place although very hot was cute and quiet which worked well with us. It's a great place to get away from the city to just relax

We are happy you enjoyed Whistlewind cottage. Hot summer days are one of our favourite times as we love jumping into the lake to cool down or paddling about in the boats. We notice the dock table and umbrella hadn't been put out yet. That helps keep things cool. We hope you found the big living room fan and the fans in all the bedroom - good for keeping things breezy.
