PREVIOUS RENTER'S COMMENTS:
(2012) Beautiful cottage and very well equipped.... For the couple of days that we spent at the cottage we enjoyed every second of it. The cottage was comfortable, spacious and relaxing. Thanks for supplying the kids with a variety of games and activities to do! We enjoyed ourselves and all want to thank you for the memorable New Years. The cottage was beautiful, great company and great food. It certainly was a beautiful week-end at Echo Lake!!
(Feb 2014) Stayed at Echo Lake while my daughter played at the winter games in Baysville...The place was awesome and amazing for the week. Quiet location, across from the water. We drove the ski doos right to the chalet. We had everything like home. Nothing was missing!!! There was more than enough room and the unlimited wood for the wood stove let us enjoy the country cottage winter to perfection. I would highly recommend this cottage to families or a group of adults looking to get away and enjoy winter in the Muskokas. Baysville has the Baysville Brewery and it is a nice micro brewery. A great time and highly recommended.
