What a perfect place to have our first family vacation /reunion. The log cabin is beautifully made, designed and decorated. I love the huge dining table where the family can eat dinner together while enjoying the perfect sunset overlooking the water. The hot tub was a hit for everyone esp the 5 grandkids. The game room was a great bonding place for the adults and kids. I love that the sandy beach is a walking distance, my sons loved the bike rides and we all did the hikes.
The warm welcome from our host Colin is also much appreciated. It was truly a beautiful place for all of us to relax enjoy and rejuvenate. We hope we can come back again soon.

Cynthia, Kim and I are so grateful to have met you and your wonderful family. Thank you so much for your kind words. Until next time? :)

Wow! We were married on the property the day after we arrived! Due to rain it was set up in the game room, but there are so many wonderful options outdoors. We had a total of 18 guests for the wedding and 11 + an infant & dog for the week. There's so much space inside that no one was ever on top of each other. Beds were comfortable, views are AMAZING, we had great use out of the water craft provided!
Colin is so easy to communicate with & such a pleasant, kind person. He was always available if we had any questions and made sure we knew where to tour with the water craft- the osprey nest being about 40 mins by kayak & Canoe. Such a cool thing to get to see!
The location is so central to all other locations in the Bruce. There is a great beach just a bike ride away, if you want pizza- Moms pizza was SOO good! There are so many more things I could say, but bottom line is, if you're looking for something for a large family or friends gathering that is kid friendly of all ages- this IS your place!
For anyone considering getting married here, you're welcome to ask Colin for my contact information. ( vendor information, tips for the property, pictures . Etc. )
Thank you so much Colin & Kim. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We truly hope to be back in the future!

Carissa and Bryan, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we were honoured that you had your wedding here. You both looked amazing, and got some incredible pictures by the shore and around the property.
You have a wonderful family, including my new best buddy, Rodney.
We would love to have you back to celebrate your anniversary!
We wish you many years of joy and happiness.
All the best
Colin and Kim.

Beautiful cottage and beautiful location. You do really have to see it to fully appreciate the craftsmanship. As my 5 year old put it, "we're in a house built out of trees." Cottage is well equipped including laundry which came in handy for the kids. Kitchen has everything you need, tons of plates, cutlery, coffee makers, every appliance.

We enjoyed spending time by the water, going out in the kayaks and paddleboat, having a fire in the fire pit by the shore. We brought our bikes and the kids loved exploring some of the trails at the Sandy Beach park.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful property and we hope to return in the future!

We had a lovely time at Wishbone Retreat. The cottage is really well equipped and very comfortable. The kids loved hopping between the lake and the hot tub despite the freezing temperatures! We did several walks in the area including the Grotto, Lion's Head and Black Creek. The sunsets were spectacular and the cottage is in the perfect position to sit on the deck and watch them from. We'll be booking again! Thanks Colin and Kim.

Katherine, we are so delighted that you enjoyed your time here. Your boys were very brave to endure the cold lake so early in the spring.
We look forward to seeing you here again.
All the best
Colin and Kim

We stayed at this beautiful cottage on Easter weekend. Pictures do not represent enough the true art that was put towards this master piece! Every corner was tastefully built, you could tell even the accommodation such as beds and furniture was picked with stylishness and comfortness. Our host Colin welcomed us with a bottle of red wine and even provided us with some firewood which we found it very thoughtful of him, this was alongside watching the stunning sunset view from the windows of living room & deck! Just breathtaking. The kitchen was well equipped with what we need. Extra fridge was an bonus for large group. Kids enjoyed the hot tub and we all had a great fun and laugh playing tennis table, as well as discovering beautiful trail walks nearby. This review can go on and on, I will let you to discover the rest. We definitely love to go back and do recommend to anyone who is looking for a high standard cottage getaway. Thanks Colin for the amazing memories! Rosie
