Cottage Thyme is very privately situated on an acre of scenic space easily accessed from a paved cottage road all year round. Enjoy beautiful sunsets from the lakeside bar or watch your favourite show on the flat screen TV. Stock the fridge and have fun, or help yourself to the fire pit and roast those marshmallows you have been saving. Watch the sunset from the screened in porch and stock the mini fridge. During the day try your luck at fishing right off the end of the floating dock where the bass like to hide or take the paddle board or kayak out into the protected bay before you venture into open water. On those rainy days drive into Port Perry and enjoy the many eateries and quaint shops.

The entire family really enjoyed our stay at this cottage voting it the one they liked best, or at least tied for best with one other, after nearly 20 years of renting cottages. Most of our time was spent at the dock either fishing or sunning with stints in or on the water followed by lounging around the Dog House enjoying the many beverages from the the refrigerator. A fabulous facility.  Between deck and cottage is a great play area well suited to those fierce family Bocce contests and other ‘friendly/non-competitive’ (not!) games. The cottage itself and adjacent deck are first class amenities. Lots of room and furniture to relax and eat outside with the BBQ nearby . Indoors the main floor accommodation is outstanding. Spacious yet comfortable with a gorgeous master suite – ours! There is also a screened in area – again large and comfortable – and an ideal place to seek some quiet time to read or do a jigsaw.  Out front is also very welcoming and a great, well manicured spot to take a soft cushioned chair, relax, close your eyes and let the world pass you by for a while.  To cap it all we were fortunate to meet both owners who couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful or prepared to spend some time chatting and helping solve some of life’s problems – well at least how to manage the garbage.  Thanks for allowing us the use of your beautiful home. Hope you enjoyed your sailing in Croatia. Regards.Alan W. (Aug. 2019)


The amenities of this cottage/home are beyond and above.  Beautifully appointed rooms and a master bedroom that was “to die for”.  My sister and brother-in-law had their own private space. The large grassy sloping lawn to the shore was more than accessible for young and old. Smores at the campfire, playing badminton by flashlight (that was a hoot) and enjoying the sandy beach area with my 3 year old niece. Dog House was a great relaxing atmosphere for all of us.  We truly enjoyed our 2 weeks! —Elizabeth A.

Cottage was beautiful – it really was home away from home. Cottage is very well kept, dock area and grounds were beautiful. Would definitely stay here again. —Joanne V. (Aug. 2018)
