Trenanthia cottage is a great getaway. Constant and great
communication between us and the cottage owner made our stay more
enjoyable. We had an amazing time sitting in the hot tub under the
stars and had great campfires while roasting marshmallows. The cottage
was fully equipped with everything we needed. One of the best cottages
we've stayed at. The pictures do not do it justice! This cottage was
truly a great getaway to relax and unwind. I would be more than happy
to recommend staying here to anyone!

We stayed in this lovely cottage on our way back from Algonquin Park
last summer. It's a really chilled house, on a quiet inlet off the
main lake. Our girls roasted marshmallows on the fire down by the
water while we enjoyed the great sunset over the lake. Loads of room
in fabulous homey cottage, quiet setting and friendly neighbours.

What a beautiful cottage! We loved canoeing on the lake and up creeks
nearby and then well-earned relaxing in the hot tub. Lots of space
inside and out and very peaceful.

"It doesn't get better than this."
Our group has now trusted our annual get-together to trenanthia for three years,
and it's been fantastic. we have a group of 16, and we've been doing this for 31
years, so the venue and atmosphere are of the utmost importance. trenanthia has
always been so accommodating to our truly unique needs, and hopefully we've
found a home for many years to come.

"A very special place."
We were delighted with Trenanthia Cottage. We arrived from Toronto on a cold
Friday evening in late November, and within an hour we were sitting around the
living room with the fire blazing, drinking wine and chatting as if we were at
home. The decor is beautiful and the cottage has a wonderful cozy feel.
Everything you need in terms of kitchen appliances / crockery / table settings
is there. It has the perfect balance of having your home comforts with all the
draws of going to a lakeside cottage.
The cottage was also extremely clean when we arrived and they provided ample
cleaning stuffs to leave the place as we found it.
The owners were very helpful and were in constant communication with us as we
planned our weekend. While we were there, the local Super checked in with us by
phone and in person to make sure the fires were working okay.
Overall, we had a terrific time and everything was perfect. We want to go back

"A forestry haven on a lake"
Having booked and seen pictures of Trenanthia Cottage online we were excited to
get there. What we found was more then we expected. The "cottage" is a mansion.
My kids loved it, exploring every nook they could inside and outside the house.
Talk about plenty of room. The inside of the cottage has great modern decor but
the outside is the wow factor.
There was 8 of us altogether. Two families with kids and there was plenty of
room to socialize or be alone. The lake was perfect for my kids to splash about
in in the shallows.
We had the local handyman check in with us to make sure everything was good and
up to our needs which was amazing. He was super friendly and helpful with
information on the local area.
We have recommended this place to a bunch of our friends one of who has already
booked it. We know they wont be disappointed!
The canoe, the volleyball, the peddle boat, all but a distance fond memory now.
I highly recommend this place for a great city get away for anyone. We'll be
back Trenanthia Cottage. Yes we will!!

"A little piece of paradise"
If I was forced to give a criticism of Trenanthia Cottage, it would be that I
wasn't able to stay longer. Comfortable, well furnished and with every
convenience you could ask for, it's also in an idyllic location. There's nothing
quite like lazing in a hot tub while gazing out over a beautiful lake - the
experience was one of peacefulness and tranquility, mixed, of course, with some
wonderful evenings of friends and laughter. A couple of days there and you've
forgotten that city life ever existed, let alone are yearning for it. I'll be
going back next year - as soon as I can, in fact. Highly recommend Trenanthia
for a getaway with family or friends.
