Perfect mix of rustic and luxury

This was our first time renting a cottage and we feel like we hit the jackpot. Scootamagic is a perfect mix of rustic (the old log cabin) and luxury (Sonos sound system). It's on a large, beautiful (yet somehow quiet) lake with lots of places to explore on the canoe/kayaks/paddleboard provided. Nothing beats a cold drink and a book on the gin deck as the sun sets. Don't get me started on the stargazing either. Amazing place, highly recommended.

A slice of cottage heaven

Skootamagic is simply a slice of Ontario 'cottage heaven'-- gorgeous sunsets, exceptional swimming with lovely areas to sit outside to catch either the morning or afternoon sun. A blend of both of old and new, lovingly furnished and equipped with an amazing sound system, we especially enjoyed spending our evenings in the log cabin for shared family dinners, film nights and of course cards and games in the screened-in porch. Already looking forward to our next stay in 2019--thank you Lynn and Bruce for sharing this very special cottage experience with us, delightful to have had a chance to meet you both this summer and will look forward to seeing you in 2019 as well , Lynne, Ken and Teddy too

Wonderful vacation spot

We had the most wonderful stay! The beautiful setting a fantastic mix of old and new made you feel relaxed upon arrival. The water was perfect for swimming right off the dock and the sunsets are gorgeous! Don’t miss your chance at this perfect holiday spot!

Peaceful, beautiful spot on a spectacular lake

As seniors we appreciated the very clean accomodations. We enjoyed the comforts of the authentic log cabin and loved the conveniences of the modern addition. The kayaking and swimming had that zen feeling with the background of sparkling waters and beautiful sunsets. Truly wow moments. The wine deck was a great fabulous place. The hosts, Bruce and Lynn, were friendly , informative, and were a pleasure to have met.

Lovely week at the cottage!

The cottage was beautiful, well-equipped and spacious. We enjoyed the breeze and the gorgeous view from the "games room." The kids really enjoyed swimming in the lake and fishing off the dock, as well as having wifi and Netflix when indoors. Thank you Lynn and Bruce for a wonderful stay and the warm welcome.

Count Down to 2019

Heartbroken that after 21 years at the same summer cottage rental, we had to find a new place. We struck gold at Skootamagic! (and will never look back) The place is perfection! There is absolutely nothing that anyone could improve upon. Completely private and well positioned (west) to enjoy breathtaking sunsets. Every amenity in the world and comfortable furniture to kick back in! Lynn and Bruce really know how to do it right!

Great week

Our family had a great week at the cottage. The cottage is very well equipped. Like other reviewers, we also packed the truck with everything we could think of, but left most of it in the truck. The old log cabin and newly renovated addition gives the best of both worlds. The Sonos system is really good, and sounds great in a +100 year old log cabin. Our teenagers enjoyed the wifi and netfix when they weren’t in or on the water. Lynn and Bruce are great hosts, and we were made to feel welcome before we even arrived at the cottage. The 10 cent tour is a great way to get to know the cottage instead of searching for everything you need. The cottage was spotless when we arrived. Skootamatta is a great lake. There is a lot of crown land around the upper lake which makes for a nice quiet boat ride. We found the lake very quiet during the week. We lucked out with our week – the weather was great and the water temperature was really comfortable for swimming. Bon Echo is right nearby for day trips if you want, and Maz’s is real close. Cloyne and Northbrook are a short drive and have everything you need to re-supply (beer store and LCBO!).

Awesome Vacation Spot

This was the best cottage vacation I have experienced. When I arrived, Bruce and Lynn were there to greet me - gracious host and hostess (I arrived late ...sorry). The cottage was immaculately cleaned and ready for our stay. Everything you could possible need was available in the cottage including linens, stereo system , kitchen equipment and internet. The cottage inside and out exceeded my expectations. As a family we enjoyed the experience immensely and plan to go back next year. I loved every minute of it and would highly recommend it to anyone.

We have stayed at many rental homes all over North America over the years and we can say This home outshines them all, from the well appointed kitchen, the luxurious linens, amazing views, Bruce and Lynn the hosts have thought of everything you could want or need. They have created a perfect marriage of old and new in this paradise of the North, the Great room with its log timbers and amazing view to the modern kitchen and sleeping areas, who could ask for anything more. Thank-you Bruce and Lynn you are gracious hosts and the knowledge you have shared with us will be invaluable as we move forward with our own plans. Looking forward to coming up next summer.

Family Vacation

This cottage exceeed our expectations. From the moment we drove up the driveway we were impressed with such a great welcome. Everything you need and more is provided which really gives a luxury experience. Skootamagic is by far the best cottage we've ever rented and we will return. Great job Lynn and Bruce!
