Vacationer Comments

"We were happy with everything Idlehour had to offer, best of all was access to the fishing boat which we used daily." - J.E

"We loved the location, size and condition of cottage. Well equipped (canoe, lifesavers, bbq, dehumidifier, etc)." - G.D

"Liked the location, decor, view, proximity to the water and gradual entry, clean, and the open grass area and fire pit." - M.O

"Liked the two bathrooms, basement, nice big dock in the sunshine. Great cottage perfect size for us." - J.H

"The setup was nice; the firewood was included, lots of outside chairs, screened porch, extra toilet paper, paper towel, ext. The view was nice, especially at sunset. The cottage was comfortable and had the cottagey look which we loved. There is lots of sitting area in the cottage, the refrigerator was large, and we like that the bbq was close to the kitchen with easy access, abundant kitchen items, liked the decorations in the bedrooms, we also liked that it was fairly secluded. - J.N

"It was a great location, nice lake. The cottage had lots of room we really liked all the deck space" - D.N

"We loved the location, lay-out, view, decor proximity to water and gradual entry." - M.O

"We liked the two-levels, two bathrooms, wood furnishings, uncluttered decor, solid windows and screens, lighting, and very good condition of the cottage, pathways, and dock. We also liked the well equipped kitchen, BBQ with propane ready, prepared outdoor fire, canoe, storage box on the dock, and easy parking." - G.D

"Loved the size, cleanliness, water entry (walk in, gradual, clean, great for swimming), proximity to Huntsville. Owner was helpful when we had a boat issue first day." - K.T

"The cottage had some nice improvements (new deck surround and upgraded basement). A significant benefit is the on property boat launch which saves me huge inconvenience of launching at Tally Ho and arranging to get vehicle back to cottage." - S.K

"The privacy outside and inside the cottage. It is great place for everyone to have their space and also has the capacity to get together in a group. It is well maintained and cozy." - D.K

"Loved the improved waterfront with the removal of the rocks and the change in the dock to allow for more seating. Great new deck all around, very enjoyable to be able to sit out and see the water clearly." - M.W

"It was beautiful. Exactly as pictures and description communicated decor was perfact for a cottage. Dock had sun all day which was important to us. Bed Comfortable." - P.K

"It was spacious and private. The aluminum boat was great as well." - H. L.

"Location was wonderful, very peaceful and quiet. Cottage was clean and neat." - A. W.

"We rented this cottage last year and really liked it so some things were as we expected (the swimming is excellent, there are lots of trees, a screened porch that we LIVED on). What was a delightful surprise was that the owner has made some really wonderful improvements that made our visit even better than last years! Clearly the owners are very thoughtful and we really appreciated it. There is no doubt at all that we will be back next year!" - A. M.

"The cottage was clean and commodious but not too fancy (perfect for kids)." - Anonymous

"Cottage has a nice layout, very nice to have 3 queen beds, instead of doubles or twins. The kitchen was fully stocked with all utensils, seasonings and condiments." - Anonymous

"Idlehour is a lovely cottage, the water was perfect for swimming, the dock chairs were in shade until quite late in the day. We were really grateful for the cool basement room to retreat to when it was 30 plus degrees in the middle of the day. We also enjoyed the deer and ducks that came through several times during our stay. It was nice to be away, but still close enough to amenities such as the bakery in Dwight and going for a gelato in Huntsville." - Anonymous

"Right on a lake, beautiful clear water, room for the whole family. We had a wonderful week!" - C. B.

"Location, Gradual water entry, Cleanliness, Cottage décor and layout, 2 bathrooms, The moose and deer heads!!!!! Water not potable but that is no big deal. We had the opportunity of meeting the owner on our last day so that was a treat! We appreciated the extra touch of flowers in pots and the chilled beverage steins in the freezer. We stayed at the same cottage last year and had a minor suggestion of new placemats and there were beautiful new place mats on the dining room table. Also, we made a request for a hook to be placed on the screen door to Muskoka Room for the safety of our 1 ½ year old grandson and that was done too. We enjoyed returning to the same cottage again plus we had a second year of fabulous weather! Now if you could guarantee that every year well......" - M. O'N.

"The cottage was very clean – just like last year. This makes us feel comfortable immediately. The setting is beautiful and the dock is perfect for boating etc. The owner stopped in just to check up and is very pleasant and helpful. No negatives, although we do find it frustrating to get rid of the garbage at the end of the week and we seem to get to the dump only when they are closed. This results in us taking the garbage bags home with us – sometimes a bit smelly." - J.W.

"It was the perfect size. It felt cozy but was spacious. The adults and kids never got in each other’s space. Beautiful views out every window and a gorgeous sunset at the dock every night. Liked everything but a recommendation would be to have a set of dresser drawers in the downstairs bedroom area." - D.V.
