Bella Vista is a beautiful, comfortable and spacious cottage. We were welcomed with a nice bottle of wine from the home owners which was so thoughtful. The cottage has a huge kitchen and living room, lots of bedrooms and two spacious bathrooms. It has a nice patio with a bbq which we enjoyed every night. One bathroom has a jacuzzi tub which was lovely. Everything was clean and there were all the amenities for our stay, including kitchen appliances, linen and towels. The rules were fair and not too stringent.

The waterfront deck is beautiful and includes a kayak, paddle boat and life jackets. I would have also appreciated some floaties since the water is too deep to touch your feet. But the water was lovely and warm in mid July and we really enjoyed the water.

I would note that there are no hiking trails in walking distance, for people who are interested in that. There are some in driving distance.

Overall we had a lovely time at Bella Vista and would recommend it. The owners and property managers really take care of their guests.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review Callum. Bella Vista really is a beautiful, quiet spot... It is a fantastic place to visit in the summer time, but you should give some thought to a winter vacation as well! With a ski hill, dog sledding, and trails all close by, you would be having an enjoyable family getaway at any time of year! We would welcome you back anytime!

The place was just perfect for the whole family. Clean and tidy.
Also appreciate the welcome package!
All the stuff that we need was all in the cottage.
Would love to be back again!

We would love to have you back again Kris! You were a great guest to have and it sounds like you appreciated everything that we had to offer. Be sure to save our website www.serenityvacationrentals.ca Bella Vista offers a lot of winter activities and would be a perfect weekend getaway!

This cottage is great! Plenty of room for everybody. Comfy beds. Spotless when we arrived. Only thing is you gotta be fit to carry all your stuff from the car down to the cottage; it's a lot of stairs!

Hi Sarah,

I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay! Yes there are some steps going down to the cottage from the top of the driveway. The driveway can become quite slippery in the winter time and the owners installed the steps for those worried about cars getting stuck should the driveway become icy. I hope you will consider staying at Bella Vista again in the future!

Our stay at Bella Vista was a perfect winter wonderland. The kids loved playing in all the snow, building forts and sliding down the great hill. Knowing about the hill is very important because this also means there are A LOT of stairs to get down to the cottage. The furnishings and amenities in the cottage are wonderful for a relaxing stay and cooking your meals. We had friends join us for a couple of nights and it accommodated 4 adults, 3 girls and 3 boys comfortably.
We were lucky enough to watch some deer eating in the yard next door while we ate breakfast and saw a family of deer go running across the lake. We rented skiis in town at Source for Sports and enjoyed cross country skiing at Moosewood Trails. We also tried Glebe Park, but the only trail good for beginners was through the Sculpture Forest. The Wolf Sanctuary at Haliburton Forest was also a great way to spend a day.
Would definitely return to the Trento's cottage...maybe try the warm weather next.

Thanks Kelly - sounds like you made the best of your time there! You hit a few of the many wonderful winter activities for the area. The only thing better than a winter stay at Bella Vista, is a summer stay at Bella Vista! :) I look forward to having you back again in the future!
