We had a wonderful time at the Island View Retreat. The grandness of this waterfront cottage must be seen to be truly appreciated as it is more of a Lake Lodge than a cottage!

We are a 3 generations family and there was something for each generation to enjoy.
Some of our highlights:
The sandy beach with shallow entry into water for the little ones
The waterside fire pit
The nearby islands you can explore (pack a lunch and spend the day)!
Spending hours lazing about in the luxury lawn furniture
The air conditioners were a life saver in the few humid days we had
The water toys - so fun to get out onto the water
The unobstructed, beautiful views of the lake

We can't wait to return next summer - thank you for being such accommodating and helpful hosts!

Amazing cottage!
Stayed for 1 week mid August. Absolutely NO bugs. Cottage and property were immaculate! Cottage was very spacious (4 adults and 2 children with LOTS of extra space). Tons of comfortable seating both indoors and outdoors. LOVED the kayaks and paddle boards! The convenience store at Camps Bay (neighbouring property) was an added bonus - saved us a few trips into town.
Owners were outstanding to deal with - very friendly and quick to respond to any questions.
Highly recommend this cottage rental. We absolutely will be coming back next year!

This is our third year staying in this cottage. It is our home away from home. It has everything our multi generational family needs. The new kayaks and paddle boards were a great addition. Memories made on Big Gull Lake will be cherished forever.

The Island View Retreat is truly a hidden gem! Since the 1980s, we have been visiting Big Gull Lake every summer and vacationing there for over 40 years. This was our first visit to Island View Retreat, and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences of our lives! We brought our children and grandkids along, and we were blown away by the spaciousness of the property and layout - you would never have known we had 14 people there! It felt like we had our own private bay to enjoy each day. Throughout the week, we swam, used the stand-up paddle boards, and enjoyed kayaking every day. The cottage is fully equipped as if you were at home - they've thought of absolutely everything you could possibly need. Definitely plan on visiting again in 2022!!!

We stayed at this wonderful cottage in July 2021. Fishing off the dock was very successful as my husband caught a pike and bass right off the dock. My daughter and I caught rock bass, which is perfect for the impatient fisherman. The fire pit was the best one we've experienced after +20 years of cottaging. It is right on the waterfront and lined with sand and has a nice view of the gorgeously lit house. Kayaking and sup boarding was very peaceful and we had a nice tour around the lake. The house is very roomy and having two bathrooms a definite plus. Lots of seating areas to choose from. Our favourite was having my morning coffee on the stools on the porch overlooking the lake, while the chipmunks greet you. Bedrooms were quite large and the living room fit us comfortably. The owners Kevin were very communicative and felt they wanted us to feel comfortable and welcomed. Kevin even followed up for feedback :)
Thank you for having us!
