“Best winter getaway imaginable”
Reviewed 16 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Let me start by saying this experience was the best cottage experience ever. Starting from the actual booking, communication was timely and concise.

The venue is beyond words, kids & adults alike were in heaven.
It was spotless. Came equipped with great entertainment options from movies to board games to skee ball, darts and so on.

I recommend to anyone who is looking for a fun relaxed environment.

Very much looking forward to returning.

“Best cottage we have ever rented!”
Reviewed 2 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Even in the dreary winter months, the Trenanthia cottage was beyond perfect! Everything from the booking process to packing up and heading home was so simple. Laura makes everything SO fun and and easy with her check lists, that you have zero stress before heading on your vacation.
This family owned cottage is well cared for and they make you feel at home the second you walk in.
I would come back here in a millisecond, we're actually trying to organize a time for August and couldn't be more excited for it!

“Most amazing winter retreat”
Reviewed 31 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Completely surpassed our expectations. Incredible cottage with everything that you need. Excellent service from Laura in making the booking, thank you! If you are looking for a great place, amazing lake views, a hot tub, sauna and an escape then this is your place, I wouldn't even consider any other cottages. A perfect romantic break that is only a couple of hours from Toronto. We are considering coming back with friends in the summer.

“An Awesome Stay with Awesome People”
Reviewed 26 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Absolutely amazing place to spend your time with friends and family. Had a blast going in for late night hot tub sessions in the middle of winter surrounded by snow and then enjoying a sit by the fireplace! The cottage is so comfy you feel right at home. Can't wait to be back next year.

“Winter Family Getaway”
Reviewed 24 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This place was amazing. There was significant snowfall that day that provided us with the most fantastic and beautiful winter getaway. Trenanthia cottage is perfect for a family getaway. Two living rooms both with wood burning fireplaces allowed for the gang to separate and enjoy time together. The upstairs also provided a great space for the kids to get away from the adults with a vintage skeeball game, darts and sitting area for board games. There was plenty of cozy rooms for everyone to be comfortable for sleeping and 4 bathrooms allowed for lots of privacy. Another favourite was the large dining room table with a view of the lake. A lot of time was spent at this table all together sharing meals and playing games. The piece de resistance was definitely the hot tub and sauna. It was great to warm up after a day outside. The area around the cottage allowed for nice nature walks and the cottage is located close to all amenities including the beautiful Gravenhurst with cool shopping and restaurants and a brewery. A short drive away allowed us to enjoy a famous Weber's lunch and dog sledding!!!! The owners are incredibly helpful and very available. We will definitely return. I can't even imagine how great this place would be in the summer too!!!

OMG, Meredith! What a marvelous review, packed full of shenanigans for folks to enjoy in & around the cottage. It really is super kind of ya to take the time to share that with all & sundry :)

And there is indeed a big difference between the ox and the whiffletree (or in parlance that isn't borrowed from Grandma: the summer & the winter are definitely different, lol). Can't wait to have y'all back up to see 'er then too!
