“My partner and I had an amazing trip for the weekend at the cottage. We loved the paddle boards, kayaks, board games, and the screen projector in the living room! The cottage is very spacious. We didn't realise until arrival that we were asked to bring our own sheets and towels (that was my fault, it was in the trip information!), but otherwise we had a great stay. ”

“We spent a wonderful week at Bruce's cottage. The location of the cottage is perfect for small kids with shallow waters for kids. Our daughter could enjoy the sandbox, the lake and the multiple toys available in the house. The house is really comfy and we cooked pizzas in the wooden oven and had a great time canoeing, paddling and swimming. Lake Joseph is really beautiful and you won't be disappointed with your choice! Bruce was also very responsive to all our queries and we can only recommend staying at his cottage!”
“Thank you Bruce and Barbara! We were lucky enough to do a 2 part swap with our wonderful Canadian hosts and got to spend a week at their lake house and a week at their main home in Stratford Ontario. Bruce and Barbara did everything in their power to make us feel welcome and even went to the trouble of waiting up until midnight for our arrival. They then provided us with breakfast and acquainted us with the house before leaving us to our own devices. The lake house was amazing, the pictures can only say so much for the property, until you see it with your own eyes can you appreciate how nice it is with an amazing location right on the lake to boot! We had so much fun in the Kayaks and canoe and have a new found passion for Stand up Paddle boarding too! The house was also equipped with an outdoor kitchen, awesome BBQ and showstopping wood fired Pizza Oven, which we used to bake our own gourmet pizza's! Bruce was in constant contact throughout the whole booking process and provided us with loads of information and even took the time to shoe us around his business when we stayed in Stratford. Again, through home swapping we have found new friends for life! Thank you so much guys and happy swapping in the future! Daniel and family.”
