The vacation was great, and this is an excellent property. I would definitely rent Gold Lake Retreat again. If you love cooking as much as I do, anyone would appreciate that kitchen. The location is perfect on the point with great views and sunsets. The neighbours were all very friendly. The neighbour to the west took us for a 3 hour boat tour of all the lakes. A great guy that seems to know everyone. We did not bring a boat up with us, so this was a great added experience. We went into Bobcaygeon for the Tragically Hip show that was a lot of fun. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for the better things in life. If you want to wake up to a million dollar view with the breeze blowing on you in bed surrounded by a wraparound upper level deck … this is the place. The master bath is stunning including a great walk in shower and Jacuzzi tub. Nothing but the best in this cottage. –Steve M. (August 2016)
Everything was absolutely excellent at Gold Lake Retreat. We had a fantastic time. We will definitely be coming back again. Thank you Ken & Kawartha Cottage Vacations for all your help & for letting us rent the cottage once again! This is definitely our favourite cottage. -Bella, May 2016
Our week at Gold Lake Retreat was amazing! We had all the family (8 people and family dog) together for a fun-filled reunion. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the gourmet kitchen with huge table and handy Lazy Susan was the centre of many delicious dinners. A typical day included hours of swimming, hiking, trips to Buckhorn for ice- cream, sightseeing of local attractions and reading/relaxing. At night we enjoyed watched TV and playing cards and games in the spacious and comfortable family room. The weather was perfect and the facilities top-notch so we all had a marvellous holiday! -Brenda and Christopher, July 30, 2014
Gold Lake Retreat was absolutely fantastic! Eva was a big help in terms of directions and any questions we had. The cottage itself was beautiful. The dock was great, it was very big so the whole group can fit on it at once, the lake was beautiful and peaceful and the water was clean and the perfect temperature. Eva had a book outlining everything we needed to know which was very helpful as well. We didn’t encounter any difficulties whatsoever. There is the Little Gull Marina nearby about 15 minutes away from the cottage where they sold groceries and basic supplies in case you needed anything. The whole group enjoyed themselves and we are defiantly looking to come back to that exact cottage as it was wonderful and exactly what we were looking for. Thanks again for all your help Kawartha Cottage Vacations! Will talk to you soon for another cottage rental.
What an amazing week we had at your beautiful cottage. Your “chefs kitchen” is outstanding and my husband who is a fantastic cook truly appreciated all it had to offer. We have left this week with long-lasting memories and our kids made new friends. Your neighbour shared some old photos of what Gold Lake use to look like and some funny stories. He recommended mooring the boat to the side as some days waves were rough and was concerned. Every night did not pass without the most spectacular sunset of which we enjoyed every moment. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with our families. -The Lee Family
Our family had a wonderful time at Gold Lake Retreat. Located on the point with spectacular sunsets each evening to enjoy over dinner from a wonderful screened in dining area. The cottage has spacious rooms throughout with an amazing kitchen that inspires anyone with a flair for cooking. The large dock and clean water offers hours of quality time swimming and just relaxing by the water. The whole family enjoyed our stay very much and we definitely look forward to returning. The cottage owner was friendly and very pleasant to deal with – Ed/Cathy, July 2015
