Beautiful, Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as depicted online. Decor is top notch. And so much to do with our family. Marinating in the hot tub as the snow fell and very much enjoyed the sauna as well. Lots to do for both the adults and the kids. We had minor problems with the satellite connection but that was resolved promptly. Susan the property manager was great.

Incredible time!

  • 5 of 5

The decor was warm and beautiful, truly a luxurious experience. Plenty of activities- kids enjoyed the slackline in particular and the owner was responsive and great to deal with.

Thanks Susan and Thanos

Summer Vacation in Canada

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Serenity Cottage for a week in August. We were a large group with five adults and seven children, but had more than enough room. The house itself is beautiful, well-built and well appointed. The water was crystal clear and we spent most of our time outside. The kids loved the playground, tether ball and sandbox at the waters edge. The cottage has everything you could need including water shoes (recommended for rocky, slippery shore), kayaks, canoes, a jet ski and wet suits. There are stores and restaurants in driving distance, including a quaint little winery very close, but this place is so private and secluded. We were there for what should have been a busy weekend/bank holiday, and literally didn't see another living soul anywhere while at the house. We would sit on the shore and joke that we thought we saw a boat in the distance, but nope, no one. Talk about a secluded paradise, while still being close to everything you may need. One thing to note, there was quite a bit of poison ivy on the property, so know what to watch for. But that was not enough of a problem to take away a star, and the owner did disclose this in the contract.

Always a great stay

  • 4 of 5

This was our forth year to stay at Serenity Cottage. We have always enjoyed the cottage. If you don't mind the seclusion, you will enjoy this cottage. It is just a 20 minute drive to Owen Sound or Meaford. We have previously stay at numerous Chalets in the Blue Mountains area. As far as cleanliness, comfort and amenities, they just don't compare to this one. The owner is very accommodating and is quick to rectify any problems that we have encountered. The only complaint that I would have is that we have seen a price increase each year that we have stayed.
