Sparkling clean3 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

This beauty is about an hour and a half north of Toronto; on Lake Simcoe. It has recently completed a full renovation both inside and out. Only 15 minutes drive from Orillia, 10 from Casino Rama; it offers excellent swimming with a very gradual dropoff and a hard sandy bottom; great for families.

The property is great. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The sunroom was lovely overlooking the water. The beds were very comfortable and very clean. Best of all is the deck overlooking the water. There were lots of chairs, chaise lounges…

We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything was very clean, tidy, and comfortable. The outside was private with a nice firepit. The views were spectacular from the lovely deck. The location was great. It was away from everything but just a short drive to shopping and tourist at…

Really great place, the photos do not do it justice. The property is large and the cottage is ideal for a group of friends / larger family who want to spend a weekend or so together. The deck and the gazebo were bigger and nicer than expected! Highly recommend

My family and I enjoyed the McDonald Beach cottage a lot. The weather didn't allow us to enjoy the lake as much as we expected but the place and its amenities more than made up for it. We will definitively love to come back in the future.

Response from Murray:
Just to clarify things here a bit. I did NOT cancel this booking. Please note that ALL of my cottage bookings require the renter to complete and sign a guest agreement as well as supply a returnable damage deposit cheque in the amount of $500. This cheque will ONLY be cashed should the renter NOT leave the cottage in the same state of repair and cleanliness as it was when they first arrive. Should it not be required, the cheque is returned to the renter about 30 days after the vacation completes. This guest agreed to these conditions however, refused to supply the damage deposit. Instead of cancelling their booking, they went to airbnb support who cancelled the booking ON MY BEHALF. Their cancellation on MY behalf cost me a $65 penalty because the renter would not adhere to my conditions of the booking.
