Our group had a wonderful time at the lake. The property comes with some many amenities and activities and the open layout of the house is excellent for cooking and eating together. —JP D. (Sept. 2020)

This was a family vacation that my mother in law wanted to do. The house and location were just fantastic. We meet the owners when we arrived on the Friday and they gave us some info about the house. They were a very friendly couple and we were glad we me them. The pictures on-line are nice, but seeing the house and property and water location, was better than we expected. Dealing with Ken and the staff at Kawartha Vacation Rentals was great. They responded to our emails and questions and made renting the property easy, Just want to say thank you to everyone for letting us have a great week away at an awesome location. —Stephen S. (Aug. 2020)

We had a great week at Maggie’s Haven. Four families shared the cottage and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kids enjoyed having the upstairs loft as their space to relax and play games. The owners provided lots of amenities such as outdoor and indoor games.Sara M. (July 2019)

The cottage was exactly as described. We were 10 guests and there was more than enough room for everyone.The kitchen was fully stocked with all the tools you would need. Long dining table fit everyone. The hot tub was perfect. Hammock by the water was a popular option all weekend, as well as the kayaks. We will hopefully be booking again next year! Thank you for allowing us to stay at your wonderful property. We enjoyed ourselves very much! —Andrea A. (June 2019)

We had a great time at the cottage. It is absolutely beautiful and spacious! Great for kids too! Everything we needed was there and available to us hassle free. —Stephanie B. (Dec. 2018)

The cottage has all the necessities for a large group. The outdoors are also fantastic. Lots of amenities, and the hot tub is a nice touch. —Lionel C. (Sept. 2018)
