About Luis Garcia

Luis and I are long-time cottagers in the area. We live in Toronto during the week where Laura is a librarian and Luis a film-maker. On weekends we head north to our cottage whenever possible and love the life style that it offers.

Luis Garcia purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Luis Garcia chose Kearney

Our cottage is large with amazing light and living space, while being homey and comfortable. Laura loves to cook and was able to design her dream kitchen here. During cold weather, we have two fire options, one on each floor (wood stove and fireplace). In summer, we love the lake water, which is spring fed and so very clean for swimming; the quiet and privacy of only having 8 other residences on the lake; and the proximity to Huntsville for shopping, services, and entertainment, whenever we can pull ourselves away from the cottage.

beautiful cottage and amazing view

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property! The cottage had everything we needed to be comfortable and more. The view of the lake was spectacular. It was a wonderful team development retreat for my staff and me. We were able to team build and connect in way not possible to do in the city.

Thank you!

October cottage stay

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, peaceful area. Great for our family Thanksgiving Weekend. Luis and Laura are welcoming hosts and their home has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay away from home. We hope to be back again in the future!

Beautiful comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Luis & Laura's cottage. It's a fabulous place. Kitchen had everything you could need. Nice bedrooms with comfortable beds. Modern bathrooms. Interesting art throughout. Loved our time in the huge living room - reading, colouring, family jam sessions, and just enjoying the beautiful lake view. We didn't have the best of weather, but still managed to get out in the canoe almost everyday and enjoy a few hikes on the trail.

Thank you Luis & Laura

Beautiful, sunny, private retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Such a peaceful quiet, private spot, with great sunshine and swimming. Plenty of rafts and boats to use, and pretty much anything you might need is stocked in the cottage. The owners are very friendly and we would like to go back every year from now on, a new family tradition. Beds were quite comfortable and plenty of towels available for the shower or the lake. High-end kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. Laundry room was an asset with our young baby. Screen room is great for bug free evenings semi-outdoors. Firewood for campfires was nice too. A++

Spent a wonderful week in the summer with my family in this beautiful cottage with amazing views on a quiet, clean lake. Cottage is very comfortable and includes many amenities. Luis was very helpful before and during our stay. We would definitely consider this property again for a future summer retreat.
