“This cottage was ideal for our family”
Reviewed 23 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The location of the cottage is perfect......the lake is beautiful, so clear and wonderful for swimming and kayaking. We had absolutely everything we needed in the cottage and loved every minute. Our two Labrador retrievers were especially sad to leave and can't wait to go back again!

“Perfect family cottage”

This was our second year at Sandy Pine Shores and our week was as good as we experienced in 2016. We had our children and grandchildren with us and the two level layout works well. Swimming is excellent and the paddle boat and other watercraft were well used. The cottage is clean, the property well maintained and the location is close to several beautiful towns minutes away. This is an excellent family retreat.

“Ontario Lakeside Idyll”

This lakeside cottage had everything we wanted, and more. It had 3 spacious double rooms plus a twin bedded room (best for one or two adolescent children), 2 large modern bathrooms, 2 comfy sitting rooms, a well equipped kitchen, and a large deck with gas BBQ overlooking a peaceful, private lakefront. The property had plenty of seating indoors and out, 3 docks to jump off or lounge on, and a campfire pit for the kids. The water was crystal clear and very warm, with a sandy bottom and no weeds for wading. There were plenty of local food shops and restaurants, but we couldn't bear to leave the property. The agent was extremely pleasant and helpful. In summary, Sandy Pine Shores is an excellent holiday property.

“Excellent Vacation Property”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife and I with two of our children, their spouses and four grandchildren (ages 2-6) found Sandy Pine Shores perfect for a family reunion. The property is spacious and being on two levels was perfect for children and adult privacy. The decks, grounds, docks and fire pit were well used as well as the boats and water toys. The central location allows for easy visits to Perth, Merrickville, Smiths Falls and Ottawa. The property is exceptionally clean, stocked and well maintained. Highly recommended!

“Great spot for a famaily holiday.”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The inside of the house was spotlessly clean on arrival. Excellent layout inside - the kids and their 2yr old took downstairs, with the wife and me upstairs - plenty of privacy. The water front area was perfect, with plenty of seating, paddle boat etc. The outside of the house could do with a quick power wash to clean the siding and get rid of all the cobwebs. The front and sides desperately needs all the weeds cutting down and opening up, which will make the property more usable and attractive. The back deck was perfect and we were able to have every meal out there. A secure enclosure for full garbage bags and recycling outside would be really helpful.
