The Cottage

Big Straggle Lake offers year-round fishing, great swimming, and we have a rowboat and two pedal boats that you may use to explore the lake, several islands, and even a hidden passageway to Little Straggle Lake. Our dock is large enough for sunning yourself on hot days or just hanging out with friends on the chairs and picnic table. There is a fire pit overlooking the lake with plenty of seating to host your party (and firewood at the ready), and a grassy area beside the cottage on which lawn games can be enjoyed. We have a full size kitchen with a double sink, microwave, stove/oven, full-sized fridge, and BBQ for you to enjoy. At your disposal are many other personal appliances such as a coffee maker, toaster, Actifry (alternative to deep-fryer), George Foreman grill, and blender. There is plenty of storage space for whatever you bring up as well. The living room has a widescreen TV, Satellite television, DVD player, and VCR. There is a small TV, DVD player, and VCR in the first bedroom (the one with four bunk beds). We have lots of VHS tapes and a few DVDs to watch, books to read, and games to play, should you find yourself stuck inside on a rainy day or need something to do in the evening. In the living room, there is also a wood-burning stove to which you may curl up to after you build yourself a fire in the evening.

The following are some tips for enjoying our cottage:

Linens & Towels - Please bring your own linens (or sleeping bags) & towels. Supplied for you at the cottage are pillows, comforters, duvets & duvet covers, extra blankets, and pillow & mattress protectors.

We stayed here in October and had a great time. The cottage is very nice and had everything we needed. The view from the cottage is spectacular, especially since the leaves were changing colours. We took the paddle boat out and had fun with that. Darryl left lots of firewood and we enjoyed a fire for 3 nights. Be sure to bring peanuts as the chipmunks will eat out of your hand, so cute. Would recommend staying here

Loved it as usual, have been there 3 out of 4 years now in October. Weather was great for Thanksgiving with beautiful colors and the lake being comfortable for the kids for swimming. Great spot, nice and private, our only complaint was we had to leave due to work. Will definitely be back next year.


Thank you Darryl and family for letting us enjoy your hideaway

Best cottage on the best lake !
We've been coming up to the Hideaway 4 years in a row. Just got back and we are already booking for summer 2022.

If you love fishing, Big Straggle Lake has some of the biggest bass we've ever caught. Like the 3lb large mouth bass that we caught roaming just out in front of the floating dock. Nonstop top water fishing action in the bay out in front of the cottage.
I always bring my electric trolling motor and a marine battery to hook up the the row boat, so we were able to circle the entire lake and find the best spots. Keeping them secret though !

The kids had fun on the floating mat. Always nice to take the kayaks out and circle the islands. Waters are very calm. We love that the cottage is surrounded by trees, so you have total privacy.

Free Internet access was also great this time.. so we could post photos on Instagram and Facetime off the dock.

Thanks for having us again .. see you next summer :)

Very cozy, clean and comfortable! Amazing view from the kitchen, living room and deck. The cottage is private and tranquil. The lake was very clean, kids loved swimming and using the kayaks and boats. This cottage is nestled in a quiet cove, so there isn't a lot of boats and commotion on the waters, making it ideal for families with kids. Water pressure was great, we were 3 adults and 4 kids and took hot showers comfortably. It's obvious Darryl goes out of his way to make sure his guests are well taken care of. Everything you need for cooking he's got - from utensils to pots and pans to BBQ utensils to even toilet paper! We'll be returning next year. Thanks so much, Darryl!

My family and I stayed for a long weekend, wish we would have been able to stay longer because despite some poor weather we had a wonderful time! Darryl was a great host (very organized, friendly & responsive) and cottage is exactly as described, cosy & comfortable.

The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals and store the food we brought and there was ample seating at the dining room table (great for board games or cards). The beds and furniture were comfortable and the view from inside and on the deck is beautiful! You have tree-line to provide privacy but with a big gap to view the lake from inside/on the deck or at the fire pit. The seating room around the fire pit isn't huge but our group of six adults and two kids fit fine.

Much of our time was spent watching the blue jays and chipmunks (bring some sunflower seeds or peanuts!) and fishing off the dock. We also took the large paddle boat and row boat out regularly. The lake is beautiful, clear and warm so despite the cooler weather we enjoyed some swimming as well. No beach but the water at the dock is shallow and weed free and there is enough seating and space for the whole family to relax by the water.

I would say this location is great for kids and adults, but the path down to the dock and the stairs might be a bit challenging for toddlers or those with mobility issues (we had no problems ourselves, just an observation).

Overall a great stay at a true Ontario cottage. Thank you Darryl!
