Booking now for the winter. Summer 2020 is all booked and reservations are being accepted for 2021!

At Summerhill, you will enjoy luxury in cottage country surrounded by nature and century old trees! Our 4 season SMOKE/VAPE FREE cottage is 1600 sq ft, 4 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom, spotlessly clean, bungalow with every modern convenience. It is situated in a peaceful setting on a private road, 30 feet from the water's edge on a gently sloping lot with only eight stairs to the dock! SMOKING OR VAPING IS NOT PERMITTED!

We are located on clean Salmon Trout Lake on a private gravel road which is 50 m from a gravel Township road. There's no traffic or road noise so your dogs and kids can play outside safely. We have easy year-round access which makes getting to the cottage in any season convenient. We're also fully insured AND all of the pictures on this site are current - in other words, the only surprises you'll have will be good ones! We cater to families, i.e. adults with kids.

Our waterfront on Salmon Trout Lake invites you to explore the outdoors. The lake is a natural Walleye hatchery which also has Small Mouth Bass and Sunfish, but nothing else. The lot is gently sloping with a sandy entrance to the water, perfect for beginner swimmers. You can swim to our water trampoline (where the water's depth is about 10-12 ft.) and practice your cannonballs (the trampoline will be taken out of the lake around Labour Day). The water gradually gets deeper as you walk out from the shore and offers excellent current-free swimming. The water's depth at the end of our dock varies from about 4 ft in the driest of summers to a more typical 5-6 ft in most summers. Many guests enjoy shallow diving from the end of the dock or using the step ladder to gradually enter the water. There are some short weeds at the end of the dock, but not tall, lanky ones like some lakes have. The sandy, shallow entry is nice for toddlers and children where they can play or search for frogs and snails!

We had the most beautiful, relaxing, and memorable March Break at this cottage. We were able to cross country ski and snowshoe on the lake, go for long hikes in the woods, and enjoy the amazing hot tub. The view of the lake from the cottage and the view of the forest from the hot tub were breathtaking. The cottage itself is incredible. We enjoyed the gourmet kitchen, the comfortable beds, the foosball table, reading in the sun room and relaxing in front of the T.V. There was plenty of room for ourselves and 5 kids. Our hosts left so many personal touches, the cottage was incredibly clean, and we barely had to pack anything which made our trip so convenient. We were very lucky to spend a week there.

Hi Jennifer,
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! We're delighted that you had a great March Break with your family - we remember enjoying many spring breaks at the cottage with our kids when they were younger, spending time together outdoors and playing board games and cards in the evenings, or even having the occasional campfire in the winter! I'm also glad you noticed (and appreciated) the comfortable beds, the cleanliness of the cottage, and the convenoence of not having to pack much of anything. We hope you'll visit again!

This is the best place ever... We have stayed at several cottages over the last few years and this is by far the best... the pictures on line don't do it justice.
It has so many wonderful features: beautiful views of the lake, hot tub, gazebo, best stocked kitchen I have seen in a cottage, sparkling clean, comfy beds, pets are welcome, use of boats (canoes, kayaks and paddle-boat), gas fireplace, good fishing on lake, and amazing hosts. There is a reason you have to book this place several months in advance... it is becoming known as a wonderful place to have a relaxing and memorable vacation.

Thanks for taking the time to write your review Marilyn! Of course we love hearing that our guests enjoyed staying at our cottage, but it means even more to us to know that you are an experienced cottager and you think ours is the best! We also have stayed at many cottages and chalets through the years and have learned what works (and what doesn't work) in rental places. We try very hard to make it perfect! You were great guests, and we hope to see you again on the lake!

My husband, 2 adult children and family dog has a wonderful week at Summerhill cottage. Liz and Ray were excellent hosts and greeted us warmly upon arrival. We enjoyed the beautifully maintained and clean 4 bedroom cottage. WOW! Pride of ownership is abundantly clear!!! What a treat not to have to provide any linens or towels. My children managed to use all the equipment including the canoe, paddle board, kayak and trampoline. The kitchen was better equipped than mine at home. The view from the dock was mesmerizing and my favourite spot. We had campfires 5 out of the 7 nights! The wood, kindling and even marshmallows were provided. Our dog had the best time chasing chipmunks and frogs! I highly recommend this 5 star piece of heaven.

Thank-you for taking the time to write your review, Deb, and thank-you also for saying that my kitchen was better equipped than yours is at home :) Both my husband and I love to cook, and we know how frustrating it can be when you are away from home and planning a nice dinner only to discover that none of the knives are sharp or that there is no cheese grater, garlic press, or other essential kitchen gadget! So we take extra care to ensure that the kitchen has everything in it that a serious cook would expect. It also makes us happy to see guests using and enjoying the sports equipment that we provide. so we're delighted that your kids had fun as well! You were considerate and appreciative guests, and we hope to see you again on the lake!

Summerhill Cottage is the quintessential 'Ontario Cottage' located within a dense forest of century-old trees and resting on a beautiful, quiet lake. Liz spares no detail to ensure her guests are felt special and pampered in their meticulously maintained abode. The cottage décor is beautiful - a rustic, chic feel that could easily be featured in a home decorating magazine. It's a wondering setting for weekend break or holiday to enjoy beautiful scenery and peaceful, quiet Canadian bliss. Our family has twice enjoyed Liz's cottages and it certainly won't be our last. Thank you Liz!

Hi Kathleen,
Thank-you for the wonderful review - we're delighted that you had another great experience renting from us. It's rewarding to hear that our hard work and efforts have resulted in being able to provide a memorable rental experience for our guests and that they want to return! I haven't been contacted yet by any home decorating magazines, but I'm flattered that you approve :) We look forward to hosting you and your family again!
Liz and Ray

Our stay at Summerhill cottage exceeded expectations. The beautiful surroundings and comforting cottage created the perfect getaway. Summerhill is ideal anytime of the year, especially if you would like to get away from the busy city lifestyle. The hot tub and furnishings in the cottage were perfect for the relaxation we were looking for. We hope to stay here again in the future! :)
