Right on the water, this oasis has a beautiful view of Lake Dalrymple. Our family cottage is spacious, relaxing, and has all the makings for creating beautiful memories. Leave the stress behind as your family enjoys all we have to offer with supreme privacy due to the forest on both sides of the cottage.
For your enjoyment 2 kayaks, a paddleboat and a rowboat are included. There’s also a large netted trampoline overlooking the water that everyone loves. The waterfront has shallow water for wading and endless play. There are so many open spaces where kids can explore, still in sight of their parents who are relaxing on the deck. It is at the end of a safe and quiet cottage road.
Lake Dalrymple has great fishing and is a clean, calm lake. It’s quite a gem and at the end of the day, enjoy the fire pit, right by the water and indulge in s’mores to cap off your perfect day!
Ice fishing is a popular sport on Lake Dalrymple. It is a beautiful, warm, and cozy place for snowmobilers to put up their feet after an enjoyable day out of doors. Ideal for families who want a winter get away.

Large rear deck with a beautiful view of the lake. Sun canopy over a table and chairs for meals overlooking the water. Enjoy coffee watching the sunrise and read your favourite book on the covered chair swing. The long 80’ dock has plenty of room to sit and take in the view or stand and fish. There is a large yard for children to run around and play games or catch frogs to their heart’s delight! There’s also a children’s sandy play area with pool and slide, netted trampoline right by the water for all to enjoy, as well as a croquet set, water and sand toys.
The water is shallow and is waist high for about 80 feet out and beyond the docking area. The swimming area does have zebra mussels so water shoes should be worn. The best option for swimming would be to rent the pontoon boat @ $450/wk (gas included). As you can boat out to deeper water, it allows for diving and jumping, and the boat has a swim ladder. The pontoon boat is also excellent to fish off as you can walk around similar to being on a bass style fishing boat. Other swimming options are Tudhope Memorial Park and Orillia waterfront (20-25 min) which have nice swimmable beaches, padded splash pads and parks.

We had a lovely time at the cottage- lots of room to roam inside and out! Kitchen and eating areas worked very well as did the bedrooms. The trampoline and s’mores by the fire pit were a hit with the kids but we all enjoyed our cruises around the lake in the pontoon boat. It was even fun to just sit on the boat bobbing tied to the dock or on the swing seat – all very relaxing! All in all it was a great week away. —Valerie (July 2017)
This cottage is ideal for large family and kids too. Our experience has only been in the fall season. The owners were very accommodating with our requests or needs. I would recommend it to other friends or families. The location is ideal. Kids can ride bikes on the end of the road in the turn around safely. -Rita C. (Oct. 2016)
This is beautiful cottage and we had a great time for our two weeks in July. The air-conditioning was especially appreciated since it was such a hot summer. We caught both pickerel and bass and appreciated that the lake was small enough to get to all the good spots in no time. At times, we had 7 adults and 1 child in residence and there was more than enough room. It was also great that it’s dog-friendly. -Hilary B. (July 2016)
We found the cottage beautiful, private, and very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the trampoline, the deck, kayaks, and the back yard. The view of the lake and the surrounding is amazing and made for some calming moments. Garbage management was very easy (unlike many cottages). It was one fewer thing for me to worry about and saved me more time to enjoy my time there. –P. R.
The week in July at Nikodin Cottage was great! We’ve rented MANY cottages in the past, and I would honestly say we found this to be, one that we would return to in a heartbeat. It was very relaxing, and easy since it had all the comforts of home. I was there with my sister and her family, and my brother and his family (and 2 big dogs :). Kids ranged from 8 months to 10 years and there was something for everyone! The cottage deck area was great for relaxing, the grass area provided lots of space for the kids to play (badminton, catch, water balloons, etc) and they enjoyed the trampoline too. The owners had placed lots of sand near the waters edge that they enjoyed climbing and digging in. The water entry was sandy and very shallow out past the dock end. We toured around the lake too and the wildlife was spectacular (loons, ducks, geese, beaver, skunk to name a few!). There were kayaks and a pedal boat as described. The cottage also had PLENTY of life jackets and water shoes. The interior of the cottage was clean and well-kept and was described well on the website. Thanks Ken for all your help in choosing a cottage, and making the rental process so easy! We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.
