Patrick and I would like to first thank Bob for sharing his lovely cottage with us. It was very clean, spacious and comfortable. It was well equipped with everything we needed. We loved the covered porch with comfy Muskoka chairs overlooking Lake Farquhar. An excellent lake for swimming. You could wade in or dive straight off the end of the dock. Cristal, clear, clean water and this year, very warm. It has three good size bedroom that were used, as we entertained family and a friend. Bob has
a nice little path with solar lights, lighting the way to the lake. It was maybe 10 minute to the town of Wilberforce, great for groceries and the LCBO. We had a fantastic stay and both highly recommend The Farquhar Cottage. Such a relaxing vacation. We would love to be able to go back. Maybe next year for two weeks if Bob will have us. Thanks again Bob.

This cottage is easily accessible as it is close to main roads and very near to Foodland and gas station. The cottage itself is not a fancy one but great spot on the lake which shows amazing view. The lake's water is crystal clear and clean. The cottage is on a high spot which allowed us to enjoy the amazing view and sunset at the same time beach is down the cliff and has all nice set of water and docks. The cottage privacy is awesome. The cottage owner is very friendly and supportive person. The cottage wasn't clean enough but this is because I was the first one to rent it in the season I think. Another issue was the amount of the dead and life ants but I think this problem was because of the weather. It was very hot on the week we spent. It was above 30 most of the week. The overall it is great cottage and I strongly recommend it.

This cottage was perfect for us. Homey and welcoming, perfect views and beautiful clean water to swim in. The hill on the driveway is a definitely a challenge and the picture doesn't quite do it justice, but this was a solid 5 star experience anyway.

We had an incredible time at Robert's cottage! The cottage itself is not fancy but it has everything you need to entertain and feed your family. The views are spectacular! We heard loons every day and we ventured off to Algonquin and saw a mom and baby moose on hwy 60! We went to the Haliburton Wolf Forest Centre and saw the beautiful wolves! We ate an incredible breakfast at Eagles Nest in Bancroft. Our dogs and children swam every day in the beautiful warm lake. We fished, we had coffee in the mornings with a breathtaking view! The sunsets are so beautiful. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable week at this cottage and we would love to come back again next year! Thank you for being a welcoming host and for trusting us with your gem of a cottage Robert.

My wife, myself and another couple have rented this cottage for one week over several Septembers and enjoy this space very much . The cottage itself is not fancy, but has all the amenities required, and has always been very clean and comfortable .
The lake is extremely quiet , most certainly so in September , and the sandy beach, although not large , is quite pleasant . We aren't swimmers per se , but the beach is great for wading and would be fine for children and adults alike .
This property is great for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing get-away in a more rustic setting.
