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.

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!

I would highly recommend this beautifully set cottage. It is spacious and met all our needs for a very relaxing stay. The screened in porch made meals very enjoyable. Sandy beach for our children to play kept them occupied for hours. Added touch was the bunkie looking onto the lake allowing some quiet time to catch up on emails.

Easy boat launch at Camp Bay Cottage Rental. The lake is quiet and calm and many fish caught. It was fun to tie up to Bone Island and take a short hike which is located directly across from the cottage. Our visits to buy ice cream at Camp Bay Cottage Rental was a nice treat as it is a 1 minute walk down a pathway from the Island View Retreat

View of the lake from the top deck was amazing and night campfires so enjoyable.

We will most definitely be booking again

Owner response:
Thank you for your review Brenda! It was great having you and look forward to your group's visit next summer as well!

Probably the best cottage we've been to, in fact our 2nd time going (first time with new owners)

This place has been completely improved, from a way better lakeside firepit surrounded by sand to a renovated, fully wifi-enabled beach house where we can do work without the kids driving us nuts.

The house has everything you need for a 1-2 week stay and with the store a 20m walk from the cabin we never needed to drive anywhere. We were even able to rent a catamaran for the week with no effort!

What was the cherry on top was some of the best fishing we've done in years, so from 6am to when the kids woke up at 9am was enough time to catch the biggest pike and smallmouth bass we've ever seen. Yum!

Will go again next year, totally worth the penny especially with the renovations
