I spent two nights at Mill Lake Cottage Resort in May 2016 for a girls' weekend. There were six of us, and we had the 4-bedroom Millview cottage (two bedrooms on the main floor, each with a queen size bed, and two bedrooms on the upper floor - one with a single bed and the other with a double and a single). There's one bathroom on main floor. Bed linens are provided, but you need to bring your own towels. The cottage has a private deck with a beautiful view of the lake. The kitchen is fully equipped plus there's a BBQ on the deck. Everything was clean and well maintained.
There are lots of outdoor activities available, such as the complimentary use of canoes, paddleboats and kayaks, and there are campfire areas, but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate for us to make use of any of these great amenities during our short stay early in the season. We did, however, enjoy an evening sauna.
The six of us were not all travelling together, and we all had a bit of trouble finding our way to the resort. Some of our GPSs took us to a dead end of a Mill Lake Road that was on the other side of Hwy. 69, which was not where we should have been, and also the sign for the resort at the road where we should have turned in was not two sided, so the sign was not visible depending on which direction you were coming from. And just a heads up - the road in to the resort is very winding and narrow. BTW, it's only about a 10-minute ride in to Parry Sound.
Our hosts Mike and Jayne were very accommodating and helpful, and I would definitely stay here again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mill Lake Cottage Resort has a unique blend of proximity and privacy. You will settle into "holiday mode" as soon as you drive down the winding, scenic lane heading into the resort. The property is bordered by a large area of wilderness, so you will feel that you are in the heart of cottage country. Yet, you are only a short distance from the town of Parry Sound and Georgian Bay. Come and enjoy your vacation, whatever the season. All of our cottages offer exceptional views of Mill Lake and are on the shoreline - some practically touch the waters' edge. ... more less
