Spacious and welcoming, Holcroft Cottage is only a 90 minute drive from Toronto located on beautiful Lake Couchiching. Here you will find all the comforts of home including air conditioning for those hot, humid days, while on holiday with your family and friends. Revel in sipping and eating on the full-length deck while taking in the view of the waterfront and the magnificent sunsets. Spend time by the water on the beach or walk into the water – perfect for children and the whole family. The lake is good for swimming or fishing. Fishing gear is included so you can enjoy fishing right off the dock or go for a gentle paddle across the clear water in the canoe or paddleboat. Or if you prefer, unwind in the sauna followed by a cool dip in the lake.

If weather chases you indoors, the many large windows afford a view of the lake and surrounding nature from almost anywhere in the cottage. Perhaps you’d rather go to the games/family room that includes a pinball machine, telescope, piano, and wet bar, or simply watch TV or read a good book. In the evening, enjoy spectacular sunsets while relaxing on the deck, or settle in at the fire pit – an excellent spot for spending family time under the stars, sitting by a campfire and roasting marshmallows. In cooler weather, cozy up in front of the fireplace in the family room, savouring the relaxing warmth.
