Our group book Serendipity Lodge for a Girls' Get Away May 2022. Immediately upon entering we are completely charmed by the cottage. It was the perfect blend of cozy comfort for our group. We loved discovering the little personal touches they left for us. The views from the cottage were lovely. The cottage itself is well appointed with plenty options in the kitchen and ample dishes and glassware. The beds were cozy and comfortable. Activity wise the cottage has something for everyone one of all ages. We appreciated the use of the complimentary park pass for our foray into Algonquin Park and the abundant watercraft available for our use on Lake St. Peter. Many of use got to experience paddle boarding for the first time and had a blast. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks and on the zen deck as well. The fire pit has ample comfortable seating for a large group. The hosts were accessible and responsive to our inquiries during our stay. Our group would not hesitate to return.

Thank you for your detailed and kind review Rebecca and for choosing us for your Girls trip! It was a pleasure to host you and we're glad you made the most of everything at the cottage from hammocks to the paddle boards. See you next time!!

We stayed at Serendipity Lodge for 2 weeks in late winter/early spring, and had a wonderful time. It's a big house, warm and welcoming, and we felt at home right away. The windows meant great views of birds, trees, and the snowy lake; the wood stoves kept it cozy inside. The kitchens had all the dishes/pots/pans we needed, and I think my wife probably spent an hour every day enjoying either the sauna or the Pac-Man arcade game! We loved the chance to visit Algonquin and Lake St. Peter parks, and more than anything just the opportunity to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. Natasha and George were helpful and went "above and beyond" to answer any questions we had.

Hello Robin,
Thank you for choosing us for your extended winter getaway. It sounds like you really made the most of it, enjoying all the nature, wood fire stoves plus the PacMan arcade and sauna!!!
It was a pleasure to host you and we welcome you both back anytime.
Natasha and George

Our yearly October trip I take with my brother and our friends had the pleasure of spending a weekend at serendipity lodge. It may have rained for most of our stay but the breathtaking scenery, gorgeous house, and incredible atmosphere made every moment amazing. Having breakfast with such a wonderful view of the lake is a memory I will hold with myself for a long time.

I highly recommend it for others as well.

Thank you for your review Curtis -it was a pleasure to host your group of friends and we're so happy to hear that you were filled with long lasting memories!

We stayed in July and had a wonderful time.
The property itself really does look like the photos -- it's beautifully situated on the water and the cottage is tastefully decorated with rustic details. My favourite part inside the cottage was the adorable pink oven on the main floor kitchen (yes, there are 2 kitchens in this cottage)!

Outside, Natasha and George truly did think of everything. There was a zip-line that kids (and adults) enjoyed, a ninja climbing course, and they had abundance of kayaks, canoes for the family to enjoy. The water was beautiful and calm, allowing us to truly enjoy the serene nature this property is surrounded by.
There's also plenty to do inside as well -- TON of board games and DVDs, a pool table, foosball table, and a digital piano that my kids really enjoyed playing on (my kids play piano).

As many other posted, it was very buggy given that it's well situated hidden from the main roads. The bug zappers they provide are very handy and convenient.
The welcome gifts were a thoughtful touch, along with the BIG welcome booklet with activity and dining suggestions inside.

While we thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, the best part wasn't the property; it was the owners. They were approachable, accommodating, friendly, and you can tell they genuinely want you to enjoy your stay. They are lovely people who were kind enough to share their cottage with us.

Thanks again for everything!

A lovely place place to unite with family this summer. The views from the sunroom and lower kitchen were fabulous. The cottage was lovely and clean and the hosts were very helpful, even when a storm took the power out.
Thank you Natasha and George.
