“Amazing winter retreat”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

We went up just after Christmas and had a fantastic stay! The owners were beyond hospitable and were very fun people. We were lucky enough to get snow and Cezar took us out snowmobiling which was a great experience for me. The BBQ area I could see as being amazing to host a large crowd in the summer. The private hot tub was amazing and the cottage was very spacious and clean! I would go back again for sure! The owners are definately doing a great job!

Went to Springwood Cottages in mid-Dec for a nice weekend getaway from the city. Conveniently located just a few hours east of Toronto in probably one of the last truly natural areas in Ontario (near a major city). Cezar and Yola were incredibly accommodating, welcoming, and pleasant hosts. Plenty of amenities on the property with well furnished modern cottages. Particularly enjoyed with flat panel TV with Bell satellite service as well as the propane fireplace.

Without a doubt, we will be making regular stays at Springwood.

We went to Spring wood Cottages for a good friends wedding. Unfortunately the weather was not very co operative. We had a great time though. We spent most of the weekend outside and Cezar and Yola did everything possible to make everyone comfortable.
Our cottage was very nice and clean, with a great fire place. I felt quite at home here, with beautiful views of the water and a big bon fire on the beach. Although it was coming to the off season of the cottages, it was nice to spend the weekend with my friends and my family and would love to return again in the on season and experience everything the cottages have to offer. Cezar and Yola did a great job!

Room Tip: Cabin 4 was great , close to everything. Great space for a large family!

This is not just a family friendly resort, it is a resort that makes you feel like part of the family. Cezar and Yola are extremely friendly and courtious hosts that welcome you to their home. The cottages are meticuoisly cleaned after every guest and the grounds and cottages are extremely well maintained. Any problem or concern is immediately looked after so you can continue to enjoy your stay. Almost every day there is some event or function to bring all the vacationers together to meet and make new friends. You will not regret spending some time here, the beach is very tidy and the swimming area is safe. I have recommended this resort to many friends and family.

Room Tip: The water front cottages have spetacular views of the sunsets

This was my third time at Springwood for a weekend away, and as always, was fantastic! The grounds and cottages were clean, the staff and owners are very friendly and helpful, and there were plenty of amenities. The cottages were very nicely equipped and furnished, with plenty of room for 2 families.

There were plenty of children's activities on the beach, and several options for tubing, waterskiing, lake cruises, etc.

One of the best things by far at Springwood was the fishing. The lake is extremely productive and there are plenty of monsters to be found. The guided fishing tour with the owner (Cezar) was definitely worth it! He'll show you all the best spots, and guarantees a good catch.

Overall a clean friendly resort, with plenty of options for activities, and excellent fishing. Worth the drive!

A SPECIAL toast to the hosts Cezar and Jola, at Springwood Cottages. You both are the greatest...As the mother of the bride re the wedding at Springwood Cottages this past weekend, I must say you truly outdid yourselves. You solved every little or big problem that arose immediately. You were both amazing. Thank you so much for making my daughters wedding a beautiful memory we will never forget...

I attended a wedding this past weekend at springwood cottages. I thought the cottages were great and the service was wonderful. The owner gave me extra amenities for the cottage for free, and let us borrow a bunch of kids movies for free as well. We stayed in cottage #10 and it had a great view. It was clean, the bedding was new and clean and it was very spacious. The kitchen was extremely clean, including the coffee maker, stove and fridge - they looked brand new.
It was a chilly weekend and the owners were thoughtful enough to have heaters in all the rooms, and i actually really enjoyed the candles they provided!!

Room Tip: cottage #10 was very nice and looked over the lake....
