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.

A great time despite the rain

  • 5 of 5

We had planned on spending a lot of time at the provincial park playing in the snow but the rain came in. The accomodations at Scott's Point allowed us to still have a great time. The hot tub, sauna and the kids playground and toys kept us quite busy. It was nice to be in such spacious accomodation as well since it was possible to have a quiet moment and read a book and just relax. There were a lot of thoughtful touches that really made it seem like home. I would certainly return.

Such a beautiful place inside and out. We had our family here for a winter getaway and we've made such beautiful memories here. We want to make it an annual get together. Makes it very hard to go back to reality.

Terrific winter get-away for the family

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 12 stayed for 4 days just after New Years and enjoyed every minute of it. Very roomy, multi levelled, great common areas. We skated on the lake and tobogganed down the hill. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit, the sauna and the hot tub. Highly recommend a visit.

love it!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time (in the Fall) we have stayed at Scott's Point and we really enjoyed it. Jeanette is so accomodating and the cottage is just perfect for large groups. We love sitting around the fire pit, all of the decks and the location is so convenient.
