Our family had the best vacation this summer at Whispering Pines! Such a rare find ...very clean, spacious, great views, loved the kitchen, perfect layout with separate floor for the kids. Bass Lake is a hidden gem and much nicer than Simcoe...peaceful, calm, warm. We spent hours playing barefoot in the water without a sole around.
Ideal location, affordable rates, rules were very easy to follow, owners were exceptional communicators who welcomed and appreciated us. I miss the cottage already!

Our family was thrilled to be returning to Whispering Pines this past August. This was our third summer at the cottage and possibly our best stay yet. The lake was so warm and nice, so the kids loved jumping in the water and using all the floating toys and tubes. We ate outside for most meals, and enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake from the deck on the cottage. We also loved sitting on the dock most evenings in the Muskoka chairs watching the sunset. We explored some local places and enjoyed TudHope Park and Beach for the kids. We found the cottage to be very clean and the rooms were comfortable. We had a very relaxing and cosy stay. We now feel as though we have some great family memories at this cottage and hope to come back again!

We first visited in August and fell in love. The cottage is stunning. Gorgeous finishings, immaculate inside, floor to ceiling windows, panoramic views of Bass Lake, very quiet, no neighbours on either side, and awesome swimming for young kids. Gourmet kitchen & bathrooms, lots of space for our large group on both levels with sleeping options & cozy plush beds.



Our whole family begged us to return over the holidays. Tobagging was a blast, went ice skating & took long walks on the lake. So peaceful, you could hear a pin drop. Loved skiing 15 minutes away at Horseshoe & Moonstone. Favourite memories: playing snooker & pool, watching the bunnies, building a huge snowman, beating our grandkids at Monopoly in front of the fireplace & Xmas eve feast with relatives from Sweden.



We are so grateful for a memorable Christmas in such a special home.

Dear Michelle and Family,

Thank you for visiting us in the summer and returning again over the Christmas vacation! We love hosting our international guests and hearing that you enjoyed such special family time. The peace and tranquility of our home is really unique, and everyone is amazed at how quiet and beautiful Bass Lake is. At times you feel like you are the only ones on the lake, and the city is a whole world away.

We feel lucky to share our cottage and its surroundings with our guests, and are proud that you enjoyed the true Canadian winter experience with skating, skiing, and the nearby hills on a toboggan. Please send us pictures with the giant snowman!
Wishing you all a safe travels, and hope you will be able to visit again soon.

Sincerely,

Stacie at Whispering Pines Cottage

We were thrilled with our stay at Bass Lake.

The cottage was beautiful and very clean.

The grounds, lake and sunsets were fantastic.

We cannot wait to return this spring.

Dear Dave,

Thank you for spending a weekend at our home. We love hosting our guests 365 days per year throughout all seasons of weather! The summer is of course a highlight, and the fall colours are beautiful on Bass Lake. Your family was a pleasure, and thank you for leaving the cottage upon departure in great condition. We are thrilled you are returning again this spring, and welcome the opportunity for you to enjoy our home anytime.

Stay warm, and we wish you and your family and safe and healthy winter.

Kind regards,

Stacie at Whispering Pines Cottage

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Whispering Pines. We have rented cottages all over Ontario for the past 10 years. This had excellent value and prices very reasonable. Wonderful owners. They left us a sweet welcome note and a bottle of wine, reached out to see if we needed anything, and sent a thank you after we left. Cottage rules were sent months in advance. Very straightforward and easy to follow.

Outside grounds and inside was immaculate and new. Much nicer than the pictures. High ceilings, spacious bedrooms, huge windows and gorgeous view of the water. Double levels had lots of space for our group of 8. Comfy beds and we slept like babies. We brought our own bedding but did not need it as cottage comes with 2 sets of sheets & towels. Everything was well stocked and easy to find and nicely stored.

Bass Lake is clean, shallow, warm, and no rocks so it was awesome for swimming. Came with the blown up rafts and water toys. Perfect dock. Accommodated all of us on the wood Muskoka chairs. Incredible sunsets. We BBQ'd on the huge upper deck. Chilled on the outside couch with my morning coffee. Went jogging on the nearby trails. No bugs. Lots of activities - 2 canoes, 3 kayaks, 6 bikes, basketball net, big screen TV, and great huge pool table. We were never bored.

Whispering Pines is now our favourite spot - hands down. Our whole group is still talking about our stay and we are super excited as we just re-booked for June. Thank you Cottages in

Dear Carolyn,

We appreciate the time that you took to share such lovely details of your stay with us. We are glad you were able to enjoy the summer sunshine and warm beautiful lake. Your comments highlight some of the best parts of our cottage rental model with our guests, as we want them to know that they are appreciated and vacation time is precious. Nice that you were able to relax, swim, enjoy the activities and go jogging all in the same week! We look forward to welcoming your group again in June, and hope that you will continue to visit us for many years to come.

Cheers,

Stacie at Whispering Pines Cottage
