We've been going to Lake Edge Cottages for several years. It's our go-to getaway with our dog Buster. The cottages are very comfortable, the waterfront view is beautiful and it's cosy, rustic without being rough. Buster has the run of the woods and we get to have a relaxing respite from city life. Nearby Lakefield has a butcher store that is fantastic. We always pick up our groceries after we've unpacked. The town is less than 10 minutes away and has everything you need.
We've stayed in most of the lakefront cottages including the one with a hot tub in winter! Great fun! We've had friends stay with us (4 adults plus one teenager) plus our schnoodle. It's a little crowded for the 1-bedroom cottage but with good friends, totally doable. One year we cooked a turkey dinner at Thanksgiving. I would definitely recommend Lake Edge Cottages to anyone with a dog who wants to escape the city and experience the great outdoors. There's excellent hiking in the nearby provincial park. One tip: we always bring two canvas folding chairs and an extra lamp (if you're like me and like mood lighting).
Pam and Peter are terrific hosts and they are always improving the property. We've stayed at other places that "allow" dogs but in our experience only Lake Edge "welcomes" dogs!
Lakefield also has lots of shops to browse in and you can rent dvds for entertainment at night. Each cottage has a dvd player with the tv.
