About Jeanette Turvey

Hi there! I'm Jeanette and I manage Scottspoint Islandview with my partner (and owner) Bob. Although an American citizen, Bob moved to Huntsville for work in the early 90's and purchased our cottage in 1999. Bob continues to spend a lot of time traveling between Huntsville and the US, while I live just around the corner from our cottage and manage the many wonderful requests from people looking to book with us throughout the year. I grew up in Huntsville and moved back to my stomping grounds about 7 years ago. Huntsville happens to be one of those places that draws you back with a desire to raise your children here. I have two beautiful children who are very active in competitive sports and thus I am not always available to meet our guests when they arrive at different times throughout a week or weekend, but I try very hard to do so!

Having grown up in Huntsville, I have lots of knowledge about the area and some of the fun things to do here, so please feel free to pick my brain!!

I enjoy meeting and communicating with all of our guests and it's our goal to make sure your experience is as effortless, comfortable and relaxing as possible. We welcome any and all feedback because it's very important to us that we continue to ensure our guests leave feeling their experience was worth every ounce of their time and money spent enjoying quality time with their friends and family.

Please feel free to contact us at any time with any questions you may have!!

Jeanette Turvey purchased this cottage in 2002

What makes this cottage unique

One of the wonderful things about our property is that it makes you feel as though you are in a remote area somewhere in Muskoka. The truth is however, that you are only a 10 minute walk into the heart of Huntsville where you can take an afternoon or evening stroll for dinner or a drink at the local pub.

Our location on Fairy lake has quick access to the mouth of the river where you can take a quick boat ride into town or Vernon lake, or head the opposite way into Pen Lake or Lake of Bays. We are very central to everything.

The property was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a small college reunion to celebrate life and our profession of 35 years. The peaceful setting, view of the lake and stunning cottage was top notch! Jeanette was wonderful to work with and answered all our concerns promptly.

Perfect family gathering home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Scott's Point for a week with our two adult children and their spouses. It was a perfect place to gather and to each have separate spaces both inside and outside. The dock and swimming area in the lake was beautiful. The fire pit, the kayaks and paddle-board, the screened in room, the kitchen and all of the comfortable beds made this such an amazing stay. And my adult children and husband Ioved the Wii games! I highly recommend this home and we hope to return here again soon!
