The cottage and large deck are beautiful. The kitchen is well equipped and rooms are a comfortable size. Jason and his family are quick to respond to any issues we had, like needing propane. The lake is close enough to town and there were lots of things to explore nearby. Thank you for sharing the lake house with our family.

We had a wonderful stay at the Lake House. The cottage is modern with amenities I wasn't expecting (dishwasher!!). It was well suited for my family of 6 (four kids between 13 and 7). Jason and his brothers greeted us and were very welcoming. I would definitely recommend the Lake House!

Great cottage on a terrific lake. We loved sitting in the Muskoka chairs by the water and soaked up the stillness. The cottage is well equipped for a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend.

Lovely stay, great space. Lake was warm enough to swim in while we were there mid-June!

Response from Jason:
Good evening Sana, Thank you for your feedback it really helps us to improve to make our guests stay more enjoyable. It makes sense why you asked for the wifi password as our listing had that wifi was available. This is on us as we do not provide wifi. My apologies. We have edited our listing to reflect that. As for the directions I was hoping to get a little more feedback from you with regards to your comment. Did you have difficulty in getting to our place. Any advice to make it better. We take you input seriously so please feel free to to give you comments. Thank you again, Jason

The place was great. It had everything that we needed. The view is amazing. It was extremely nice to have a direct and private access to the lake. The whole lakeshore is privately owned which makes Jason's place more intimate. We had a 3 month old baby with us and she really enjoyed her stay. Overall a great spot for a weekend.

I'm a cottager and so is my family. We have been cottaging on McKay Lake for over 40 years. With the purchase of another cottage on the lake we wanted to share with others the beauty of our Muskoka experience. But we want to do so in a respectful way by being mindful of who we choose to rent to. Our lake isn't small, but it is intimate, as we know virtually every other cottager. We want to ensure their enjoyment AND our reputation isn't negatively effected
