What a spectacular cottage. Stocked with everything we needed, beautiful, and functional. Having the bunkie was amazing for having guests come to stay. The setting is private and beautiful. The outdoor enclosed porch was spectacular and where we spent the majority of our time.
Susan - Bear's Den, 2022
Lake Joe Chateau is a beautiful cottage, very spacious and a great blend of a more traditionally rustic elements but done in a modern, elegant way. All the bedrooms were fantastic, and we loved the fact that they all had huge ensuite bathrooms (most even had free-standing tubs) - great showerheads and water pressure, we never ran out of hot water which we have experienced at other cottages. Lots of tv's and entertainment at the main cottage and boathouse (trampoline, waterslide). I was pleasantly surprised at how much kid-friendly equipment and toys were at the cottage which was particularly suitable for my two toddlers. We enjoyed cooking large meals every day in the spacious chef's kitchen that was for the most part, very well stocked.
M Wong - Lake Joe Chateau, 2022
We truly loved A Loons lottery and would love to return with our friends/family for next year. The hotel quality linens, beds, towels, beach towels - it all makes a huge difference! Plus the multiple kayaks! - we were on the water daily and appreciated being able to do a group paddle. From sunsets to warm waters to bbq and eventually the fire pit - we truly enjoyed it all.
Melissa - A Loon's Lottery, 2022
We had a fabulous time at the cottage and were very pleased with the services. This was our first time renting after our family cottage sold last year so we didn’t really know what to expect, but it was wonderful.
Hilary - Clarity on Clear Lake, 2022
We have rented many cottages over the past 20 years, and White Opal is by a margin the best cottage experience we have had. The owner has clearly taken great care with the renovation - every detail is perfect and the quality of the furnishings is top notch. Although the cottage is comfortable in every way, the landscaping might be the highlight. They have figured the relationship of the property to the lake perfectly. One of us stayed in the bunkie and is having severe withdrawal symptoms now that we are back in the city.
As usual the Jayne experience continues to impress. Michelle was fun, friendly and informative. We really felt taken care of. The cottage was impeccably clean and well stocked for our arrival.
Guy - White Opal, 2022
Cottage was beautiful with breathtaking views of lakefront. All furnishings, bedding and linens in cottage were of excellent quality. Cottage was soothing and tastefully decorated.
Property manager (Jen) and maintenance manager (Peter) were welcoming, responsive, professional and very helpful throughout the stay. Thank you both very much!
Amenities provided indoors (fully stocked games room with pool/ping pong table, foosball table, surround sound entertainment system and expansive assortment of games) and outdoors (kayaks, fire pit, fish cleaning table, SUPs and well-maintained dock) brought the cottage to a resort destination level. Travelling with young children, we were very appreciative of the first aid kit, sunscreen and bug repellent bin and even a tray of sunglasses for adults/kids to use.
Kitchen was well-equipped with plenty of dishes, cutlery, utensils and appliances. All appliances were in new/excellent working condition. An assortment of serving ware for entertaining (large salad bowls, serving trays and displays) were also available. We did not use them but it shows the thoughtfulness and consideration of the owners for guests who would be entertaining over the course of their stay.
We highly enjoyed our stay at Pigeon Dream. Would definitely recommend and plan to return again in the future. Thank you Jayne’s Cottages for the exceptional service! Thank you Mike and Carrie for sharing your beautiful cottage!
Pigeon Dream, 2022
Absolutely stunning place. Clean and everything as advertised. Everyone was pleasant and easy to deal with.
Sonia - Shimmering Waters, 2022
Overall we very much enjoyed Home Away
Jayne did regular follow up with the completion of the boathouse prior to our rental period. This was very much appreciated. Home Away was the third cottage that we rented this summer from Jayne's. We had also rented Breeze Bay and Chalet de Reve in July. Our total stay at the 3 locations was 43 days over the past 2 months.
Thomas - Home Away, 2022
Great cottage with lots of space for entertaining. Very satisfied with the prompt service by everyone at Jayne's. Will definitely rent again with Jayne's next summer.
Karie - Camp Muskoka, 2022
We had a reservation with another organization that cancelled on us 6 days before we were supposed to arrive. We called Jayne's and Keegan was able to negotiate with the owners of For Shore so that we could still have our vacation on the dates we'd been planning for. We rented kayaks using Jayne's concierge services, and they were waiting for us upon our arrival. We also used the concierge to book a family photography session and our photographer was able to capture so many great Muskoka moments! We've rented many cottages and always bring a box of kitchen supplies because there are always important tools missing. Not this time! Everything from barware to pots and pans were in good condition.
Kelly - For Shore, 2022
Wonderful cottage, view and lake. We would love to return again.
Sylvia - Serenity at Crane Lake, 2022
We had a lovely 2 weeks at owls well. The cottage is very comfortable, with lots of room to sit inside and out. Michelle the concierge was very responsive. We hope to be able to visit again.
Debra - Owl's Well, 2022
We all loved the cottage and interaction with rep. Ideal spot!! We all had a fantastic time and loved By the Moon.
By The Moon, 2022
Cottage was incredible, especially the porch/Muskoka room. Beautiful location, quiet and had everything we needed for a fantastic family vacation. Really appreciated the welcome gift and all the hospitality of Jayne's. Will definitely be booking again in future.
Julia - Bear's Den, 2022
Jayne is simply the best and most attentive service!
Heather - Fort Lauderdale Oasis, 2022
The current cottage we rented was so well appointed and maintained. Not only did Jayne’ cottages make us feel welcome there but so did the owners. Although we didn’t get up there as much as we would have liked, any time we did spend up there, gave us the feeling of being in “a home away from home”. Since we have been unable to travel for the last 2 to 3 years due to COVID having the ability to rent cottages from a professional company that cares about their clients has been such a blessing. This time around, we were particularly taken with our property manager, Margot, who was just delightful to work with. She anticipated our every move and was always so accommodating and caring.
Lisa - Stonethrow, 2022
The house was very well appointed and comfortable. The cleaners were excellent.
Tanya - Thornbury Ridge, 2022
Our entire experience with Jayne's was top notch, from booking to answering questions during our stay. Incredible.
John - Deerview, 2022
We are a previous client of Jayne's and decided at the last minute to go away with our family for the July 1st weekend. The staff (Cindy and Keegen) at Jayne's were very accomodating to help look for any places that may be available for 4 nights over the long weekend. We recieved at least 5 to choose from and the process went along very smoothly.
We picked Breeze Bay and it was a great cottage.
Very much a scandinavian influence to the fit and finish. Very well appointed. We agreed that we would definitely stay there again. We currently have 3 other properties booked with Jayne's Chalet de Reve for 2 weeks this month. Home Away for 3 weeks in August and Mystical Bluff for the ski season next year near Blue Mountain.
Thomas - Breeze Bay, 2022
Beautiful cottage and view, thoroughly enjoyed kayaking and canoeing on Turtle Lake. Great stay and service! Highly recommend!
Ken - The Canopy, 2022
This was a lovely cottage, great location. Very clean upon arrival. We’ve rented before and have peace of mind that a Jayne’s cottage will meet high standards. This cottage did not disappoint.
Catherine - Panoramic Point, 2022
We stayed at In Awe for 2 weeks and were IN AWE for 2 weeks. The cottage itself is beautiful and well designed for comfort and beauty. Maple Lake was stunning, quiet and great place for swimming and canoeing. We look forward to returning to In Awe next summer season.
Shimmy - In Awe, 2022
Our week at The Looking Glass was more relaxing and peaceful than we even imagined. It was exactly what our family needed...tranquility, comfort, beautiful weather, enchanting surroundings, and fun water activities! We will definitely be returning.
Elise - The Looking Glass, 2022
Redman Island is a little slice of heaven. We loved our special family time and the owner took care to make our stay very comfortable, easy, and fun with special touches. Jayne's Cottages staff also make everything really easy and smooth for us!
Redman Island, 2022
The cottage was absolutely perfect. Everything in such good condition and so well stocked with supplies. The owner made sure everything was handled super promptly during wifi/power outage. It's a lovely, warm and cozy cottage - we loved it!
Michelle - Sunset Bay, 2022
Jayne’s Cottages is the only way my family will rent going forward. A pleasant experience all around. Taylor was super helpful and accessible throughout our stay.
Josh - Four Seasons Lakehouse, 2022
I would highly recommend Jayne’s cottages. They make your stay so perfect from their communication with you, to the cleanliness of the cottage, to having it stocked with the necessary items to get your vacation started, to the gift basket, immediate response and resolution to any problems that may arise, their linen, cleaning and concierge program.
Lori - Claremont, 2022
Kawagama Lake Lodge is an amazing property, with great attention to details in the construction of the cottage, the furnishings and the granite pathways and extensive mulch areas surrounding it. The remoteness of the location is both a plus (less boat traffic and noise) and a minus (rough gravel road on the last few kilometres and the extra distance to Dorset). The kitchen has very high quality appliances and cooking items and lots of plates, bowls etc. The mid-week cleaning was thorough and the staff personable. The dock was adequate for our needs, but the lake prohibition on boathouses commonly found in the Muskoka lakes which offer more utility was noted. Overall, another outstanding vacation rental from Jayne’s Luxury Cottages!
Harold - Kawagama Lake Lodge, 2022
We absolutely LOVED Moongate, and everything was perfect upon our arrival. Cheryl was wonderful when we had questions (who knew there was a battery pack for the kitchen sink!?) We would absolutely use Jayne’s again!
Cynthia - Moongate, 2022
Our family vacation at this location beat all of our expectations. The location was private. The home was well stocked with games and the water toys were enjoyed by all. Our family loved the home and area and our grandchildren hope we can return in a couple of years. Jayne’s Cottages took great care of us.
Colleen - By The Moon, 2022
The cottage was very good. Jayne's did a terrific job - especially Janet. We would be interested in renting the same cottage again next year.
Jonathan - Days Like This, 2022
The cottage was exceptional, we loved our vacation. Jayne's quickly responded to our request for swimming towels, paddles for the canoe and 4 noodles, which together met all of our requests. This made our time by the water enjoyable and kept all the kids happy.
The neighbor allow our kids to swim to their deck and slide, and the kids had great fun. Everything else was perfect and our vacation could not have been better.
Frank and Diane - My Rock, 2022
Echo Rock is the perfect place for rest & relaxation. There are lots of games, puzzles & activities to keep everyone in the cottage occupied. The kids loved diving off the dock and paddling around the lake and the parents loved relaxing in the Sauna. Jayne's was attentive to our needs. They had done a wonderful job to prepare for our arrival and were supportive of any requests throughout the vacation.
Kristie - Echo Rock, 2022
We were very pleased with the cottage and the waterfront. The cottage as well as the service we received from Cheryl were great.
Jeffrey - Muldrew Heights, 2022
The cottage was larger than expected...the pictures did not do it justice. As a repeat customer, we have high expectations from Jayne's and you didn't disappoint. Staff are all very pleasant to work. Our host this year, Tina, was terrific to work with and when we did reach out with any questions, was quick to respond and to get us answers.
Safe Harbour, 2022
We have been renting from Jayne's Cottages since 2016 and have been consistently impressed with the quality of cottages and professionalism of the staff. Emails are answered promptly, care is taken to recognize issues and address concerns, client relationships are nurtured, and the website is easy to use with great descriptions and photos.
Our experience in 2022 at BlueBird Cottage was fantastic. After two years of not seeing our family due to Covid, we gathered from across the world at a cottage that was a perfect fit for our range of ages and interests. The home is beautifully furnished with a spectacular kitchen (we all want two dishwashers now) and the Muskoka room with the adjustable screen was the perfect location for leisurely coffees and cocktails. The waterfront was divine with almost no boat traffic to interrupt the peace. We are so grateful to the owners for sharing their beautiful home with us - we could not have chosen a better cottage.
Martha - Bluebird Day, 2022
The Simcoe Sunbird was perfect for my elderly parents and one elderly dog. My two year old dog just loved it and the kids had so many lake toys to play with. We truly enjoyed ourselves.
Savina - Simcoe Sunbird, 2022
We had a wonderful time over the past five weeks at Dreamscape. As always Jayne and her team provide exceptional service and follow up. Any maintenance issues were quickly addressed. The biweekly cleaning and garbage pick up were reliable. The cottage was well stocked with cleaning supplies and basic needs. Jayne provides renters with an exceptional cottage experience.
Nina - Dreamscape, 2022
Jayne's Cottages is an amazing group of people led by an amazing woman - each time we stay at one of the cottages we are blown away by the customer service and the friendliness of the staff. Jayne looks after everything and ensures a holiday that is more than spectacular. The only thing that could be worked on is for Jayne to determine the weather - would have been nice for it too have been a little warmer, lol. Everything is available and makes for an incredible time to spend in a wonderful place with family. Couldn't say more about how great this experience has been each time we have stayed at one of Jayne's cottages.
Linda - Firelight, 2022
The cottage is quaint. Perfect for a small group/family. The bay is quiet - perfect for swimming (although it is a bit weedy in areas). The cottage is well appointed. My experience with Jayne's cottages was excellent - very good service, knowledgable staff. Overall very pleased.
Dalia - Key to the Moon, 2022
What a blessing to experience the White House on the Hill with Jaynes Cottages. The pictures don't do it justice. One of the best rental experience we have ever had - equal to or better than our stays at the Ritz Carlton. Opened our minds on how we could make our next house build even more opulent. Highly recommended for people looking for Excellence in a location AND rental company!
Kory - White House on The Hill, March 2022
AMAZING spot! We've gone two years in a row and have enjoyed every second of it. It's the perfect spot for groups to get together and enjoy a luxury vacation - even if it's just a vacation! The sunsets on the dock are unreal. HIGHLY recommend. You'll never be bored at the Land Before Time Cottage!
Maria - Land Before Time
We could not have been happier with the cottage and our experience with Jayne's Cottages. The owners have designed a superb modernist cottage with every comfort imaginable. It was a perfect break from the city in the most beautiful setting. We can't wait to come back. Our concierge was available promptly with any question we had about the cottage as well. I would use Jayne's again in a heartbeat.
Guy - Land Before Time
Your total service, responsiveness, and linens were all superb.
Brian – Fisherman's Point
Jayne’s service was awesome. We have no complaints. We will use Jayne’s again if we decide to rent in the area.
Alan – Island Park, 2021
Overall the customer service is outstanding and I would only be nit picking to come up with any suggested improvements
Mark – Trading Bay Getaway, 2021
It was a pleasure to deal with Jayne's. All arrangements were carried out with special requests for payment options accommodated. Looking forward to next year and next rental.
Steven – Rosseau Lake House, 2021
I want to thank you and your team, particularly Joy and Brenna, for the communication and for acting so expeditiously to resolve the issue with the delayed installation of the bounce platform. Both Joy and Brenna were excellent at keeping me informed and acting immediately to ameliorate the situation.
We are thoroughly enjoying our stay at Shore Club now and, again, thanks to all!
Robin – Shore Club, 2021
What a beautiful place to celebrate my 30th birthday with all the relaxing and fun amenities! I spent the majority of my weekend just laying on the dock and spending time with the gorgeous views and good vibes. The sauna was LIT! Bedrooms were cozy. For a cottage that is SUCH a large size, it really had a cozy vibe. If you like to cook, this is the spot for you! The kitchen is UNREAL! If you’re bringing a crowd, no worries - there’s room in the NINE fridges for all your food and drinks. There’s so much to do that you’ll need to come back to take advantage of it all!
Maria – Land Before Time, 2021
Just wanted to thank you for your amazing customer service as expected during our last cottage trip.
All details were well covered and as always it was perfect.
Thank you to yourself and the team once again and wish you a pleasant weekend.
Nick – Primrose, 2021
Hello a group of us stayed at the Land Before Time Cottage this past weekend.
The pictures online don't the cottage justice! In person this was an incredible setup.
Massive open concept. Cool amenities, like basketball court, tennis court, Sauna.
The water was actually a good temperature to swim in and clean as well.
The sun is out almost the entire time!
Would recommend this Cottage hands down!
Will stay again 100%
Jeramie – Land Before Time, 2021
Thanks so much for helping us deal with these circumstances. We are all very happy with the outcome.
I will be sure to recommend your services.
Peter – Foreman's Finest, 2021
Thank you very much for making our cottage renting experience amazing! We were at the Blue Heron Estate over the Labor Day week and my family and I had a great time. The property was beautiful and we can tell how much the owner has put into the space to make it a lovely home….truly an impressive property. On top of that, the property was clean and spotless, and the mid-week cleaning staff was amazing as well, it truly added an extra touch to the entire experience. Jayne’s team were also amazing throughout the process. I had a ton of questions before and during the stay as this is a new experience for me and my family – we usually stay at hotels. But the concierge and my cottage manager were so friendly and patient with me! Would highly recommend this service if you are looking for a high end cottage rental experience.
Jessie – Blue Heron Estate, 2020
We have been renting Muskoka summer homes with Jayne’s Cottages for at least four years. Jayne offers a variety of different size homes and pricing. The cottages are always well maintained and the support is first rate. They are now offering a concierge service if you need it. I highly recommend Jayne’s cottages if you are looking to stay in the Muskoka region.
Ken – Port Carling Comfort, 2020
This is my 3rd time renting from Jayne over the past 5 years. Every single time my family and I have completed our vacation with zero issues and only happy memories. The cottages are always clean and ready for us and Jayne and her team were always quick to address any needs that we had. From garbage pickups to boat rentals to basic Muskoka info, responses were prompt and useful.
Chris – Wildwood, 2020
Spacious and private spot with fantastic kitchen and outdoor spaces. Our concierge Emiline was super responsive and seemed genuinely interested if our stay.
Michael – Westpoint Sands, 2020
Great experience for seasoned cottagers. You require your own boat(s) for sure which was not an issue for us. The Jayne’s staff were truly pleasant, capable and quick to respond when needed. Impressed.
Ian & Jennifer – Gabella Island, 2020
Jaynes cottages is very professional and we had a great time at the cottage.
Sheila & Mike – Pear-A-Dice, 2020
Great location, great amenities, owners attention to detail 👍, all items were high quality. Superb job.
Mitchell – Summer Base Camp, 2020
The Cottage itself was perfectly suited for our family – well equipped and very comfortable. Tina and all the staff that we interacted with were friendly and helpful any time we reached out.
Simeon – Fort on Skeleton Lake, 2020
We were impressed that there was Apple TV for our use, unlimited wifi access and even newly purchased board games! The decor felt very cottage magazine like which made it feel more like staying in a hotel than feeling like you were using someone else’s home. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped compared to other rental and time share properties we’ve used. We found everyone at Jayne’s Cottages to be very responsive and helpful during the renting process and then our cottage manager, Jessie, was very professional and responded to our texts/emails immediately with helpful answers. When the wifi went down because of a storm, Jessie followed up with the owners for us to help get it started up again. All in all, we had a wonderful 3 weeks and enjoyed the property very much.
Danielle – Rosseau Lake House, 2020
Renting on an island for the first time. Jayne’s Cottages made the transfers seamless checking in and out. We were delighted with our cottage and boathouse and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jayne’s guidance on which cottage would be the best fit for us was invaluable.
Tania – Playfair Island, 2020
Jayne’s team and cottage manager were all excellent – they were all attentive
Nina – Bellair, 2020
Very happy with the cottage, came as advertised. Concierge service was also very helpful
John – Lovely on Loon Lake, 2020
The cottage was perfect for our needs and met our expectations. The service of the Jayne’s team was excellent.
Sandra – Exhale, 2020
The cottage was perfect for our needs and met our expectations. The service of the Jayne’s team was excellent.
Lara – Whistling Waters, 2020
Jaynes cottages was excellent with our family upon arrival and throughout our stay. The flowers were a lovely touch upon arrival and the walk-through for questions and explanation was great. The cottage was extremely clean and inviting. We enjoyed our stay at this cottage very much!!
Andrea – Rosseau Lake House, 2020
Thank you for your assistance with our rental of the Winchester cottage, and please convey our sincere thanks to the owner for making the cottage available to us! The cottage offered completely unobstructed 180 degree views of the lake, the cottage rooms were both practical and beautifully furnished and there was a seemingly unlimited amount of dishes, cutlery and cooking/serving utensils to make feeding a large group easy, both in the kitchen and on the upper deck of the boathouse. In spite of some early inclement weather, the younger members of our family made very good use of the water equipment and lower level games room during the week.
Harry – Winchester, August 2020
I wanted to send a note of thanks for you assistance in making our cottage rental a great success. We had a wonderful family holiday and are grateful everything went so smoothly. Thank you to you and the cleaning staff for the support.
Ayca – Baydream Believer, July 2020
Jayne I wanted to say thank you for resolving the issue with our Exhale rental issue effectively. We enjoyed our time at Home Away and it was great being on the same bay as we were during our past time at Exhale. Janet was great. Very quick to respond and resolve generator issue.
Connie – Home Away, July 2020
Heidi has done a terrific job again. Thank you for the vase of roses – they are lovely. Have a great family day weekend!
Justine – Muskoka’s White House, February 2019
Jayne has always been very helpful with us in the past.
Alan & Nancy – Camp Muskoka, Aug 2018
Jayne’s Cottages is fantastic, and the service reinforces why it is a much better choice than Airbnb or VRBO.
Jeff – The Yak, July 2018
At the beginning of this journey, I found the exercise of searching for a suitable cottage to be cumbersome, difficult…not very enjoyable. Jaynes Cottages changed all of that for me. They really are with the investment…and that is what this experience is. Don’t ruin the experience by getting caught up in all the confusion – let this professional group of people take care of your needs. They are very good at it!
Jeoff – My Rock, July 2018
We are one week into our four-week heavenly vacay at Exhale and we are so grateful for such a glorious retreat!!! Jaynes care and attention to detail does not go unnoticed. Our concierge Alan has been so lovely and helpful! Lake Rousseau is heaven on earth! Thank you Jayne and your team! Xx
Lesley – Exhale, July 2018
The cottage was extremely well-stocked with supplies and dishes, cutlery and utensils. The rental water trampoline leaked air but it was repaired promptly by staff. Eagle Hideaway is a very impressive, and expensively furnished home ideal for a rental vacation property. The lower level especially is unique (built on granite) with both bedrooms and a lower living room. Three TVs, satellite wifi and AC add to the comfort level and enjoyment. Everyone in the family enjoyed their stay.
Harold – Eagle Hideaway, July 2018
The Rose was a perfect cottage for us. Great location, cottage, waterfront and sun exposure.
Ken – The Rose, July 2018
Nice place.. would like to try and get on Rosseau or Joe next year!
James – Deerview, July 2018
This cottage is perfectly situated on a quiet bay. The boathouse is by far the most impressive part of this property. It was the focus of our time for meals/swimming/docking our rental boat. Both houses are beautifully decorated and have all of the amenities for a family lake vacation. The town of Bala was convenient for boat rental, bakery, groceries etc. The owners were very gracious about our last minute stay, and Jaynes Cottages staff are top notch professionals in helping us to make this getaway happen! We will rent again from Jayne for sure, and hopefully this property!
Andrea – Lakehouse Retreat, August 2018
The cottage was exactly as in pictures. The service and response from [our House Manager] was amazing. We could not have asked for a better cottage vacation.
Michel – The High Life, August 2018
We really enjoyed the stay. There was a slight worry originally when Torrance Castle wasn’t available anymore but Jayne and the team handled it very well and we were very content with the cottage that was substituted instead. Kudos to Jayne and the team for always making it work for us!
Baljot – Strawberry Lane, January 2018
This cottage was fabulous, well stocked for a large group and lots of room for kids to play. We rented it during the coldest part of the winter and yet there were lots of things to do outside around the cottage. It is a quick drive into town and we skied three days at Hidden Valley (a 15-minute drive) despite the cold. We would definitely rent this cottage again for another extended family gathering.
Lorie – Deerview, January 2018
Heidi provided excellent service. The driveway was cleared the day that we arrived and the day that we left. We were pleasantly surprised to find an assembled Christmas tree with lights and a festive centerpiece on the dining table. We enjoyed our Christmas weekend in Muskoka. The cottage had lovely views, and the wood burning fireplace was wonderful. It was a peaceful and restful stay.
Daniel – Strawberry Lane, December 2017
Everything was great from start to finish of our rental, from booking to leaving.
Alf – Torrance Castle, September 2017
We had a very positive experience.
Daphne – Peace of Muskoka Bay, September 2017
My Little Heaven is a lovely property in every way. We enjoyed the positioning on Little Morgan’s Bay and the many features and facilities of the cottage itself. Lovely views; fully stocked; comfortable linens.
The Chase Family – My Little Heaven, September 2017
We liked the cottage very much. Wished the sun had stayed on the dock longer. The kitchen was well stocked and we had lots of room for everyone. We rented on Acton Island I forget the cottage name. It was green with a bunk.
Sara & Terry – Serenity Beach, July 2017
The cottage was exactly as depicted on Jayne’s website. Very clean, modern and well furnished. Central Air Conditioning was key to getting through the exceptionally hot weather we had during our stay. Outdoor patio had a fantastic view of Lake Rosseau, with a great propane fire pit to sit around at night. Location on Rosseau was fantastic. Very nice Bay off the main lake with minimal boat traffic, close to a Marina and very pleasant scenery. Absolutely fantastic. Lots of steps to the lake from the cottage which actually turned out to be a good thing – helped work off some of the extra drinks and food consumed while on vacation! Great job to Jayne and her team. Would definitely rent from them again.
Chris – My Little Heaven, July 2017
Beautiful cottage with bunkie and boathouse on Lake Rosseau. Was perfect for our large family and Jayne’s made our experience easy and enjoyable!!
Rae-Anne – Barochan, August 2017
My family spent a lovely week at Moonstruck in Bala. The numerous rooms and beautiful common areas were perfect for our multigenerational group (16 yrs – 80yrs). The kitchen had every gadget we could think of, the knives were high quality and satisfyingly sharp, the appliances were top end. The decor was beautiful, the numerous decks and screened-in Muskoka room were well appreciated. The mid-week cleaning was also a bonus. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms modern. The cottage had every board game possible, a dart board and pool table that allowed everyone to spend some quality time together. Everything was perfect! Thanks Jayne and company for helping make our family getaway such a success!
Marie – Moonstruck, August 2017
The cottage was the kind I always wished to own (but could never afford). After searching hundreds of cottages on Airbnb, Jaynes Cottages was a breath of fresh air because of the quality of the cottages available and the fact that we did not have to bring linens, etc. We didn’t use any concierge services this time, but it was a nice surprise to see the range of what’s available. Perhaps next time!
Catriona – Granite Point, August 2017
Beautiful cottage with a lot of seating and all the amenities. Very tastefully decorated. It was a treat to be able to stay there for the week.
Shawn – Whistling Waters, August 2017
Amazing….had a fantastic two weeks with the family. Can we please have it again for 2 weeks same time next summer!!

We really like Horseshoe Lake and disappointed to hear they sold it. But the quality and items required at the cottage were great.
Guest – Horseshoe Lake, August 2017
Millie’s Bluff was a charming, sweet cottage. Being right on the water was a pleasant experience, close to all amenities was a bonus, great location. Loved it all, a great last week in Muskoka, thank you for making it special!
Lisa – Millie’s Bluff, August 2017
Exhale was very clean and it was peaceful. Pictures were very accurate. Nothing to complain about – staff was helpful and responsive.
Tamara – Exhale, August 2017
We rented the Sunset Spectacular on Lake Joseph, the cottage was spacious, clean, beautiful and provided us with a lot options for daily activities, both inside and out. We especially loved spending sunny days down by the water using the kayak, floating lounger and lilipad. The ping pong table was a huge draw in the evenings for some friendly (and competative) family fun. Our experience with Jaynes Cottages was an easy, smooth and positive experience. We are already looking forward to booking again next summer! -Thank you for everything, we had a FANTASTIC time!!!!

The Owners at Farmhouse Lake Retreat have certainly created a one-of-a-kind atmosphere.
Khalen – Farmhouse Lake Retreat, August 2017
Comfort on Rosseau had a wonderful view of the lake which could be truly appreciated from the full floor to ceiling glass windows from the living room. The double view fireplace added a cozy ambience on the cooler evenings. The cottage was spacious, had all the modern amenities while still maintaining a rustic feel. The dock area was quiet, perfect for fishing or reading a book – tranquility.
Carla – Comfort on Rosseau, August 2017
Pine Perch was the perfect escape, gorgeous cottage, with separate bunk and boat house. Fully equipped with all you could want and more. Beautiful linens and comfortable beds. Stunning location with all day sun and plenty of privacy. Sandy beach was a big hit with the kids as well as the deep water for jumping off the docks! We always have a positive experience with Jaynes Cottages and each one we rent surpasses expectations. Couldn’t have asked for more.
Guest – Pine Perch, August 2017
Lots to do there. Homelike atmosphere. Very large home suited our 10 person group nicely.
Kathy & Ty – Wildwood Cove, August 2017
Woodington was beautiful, we loved every part of it.
Tim – Woodington, August 2017
Super impressed with quality of services. Super impressed with Havelock and well stocked with baby items. Having a real crib always a huge bonus as opposed to pack and play.
Jordana – Havelock, August 2017
Dealing with Jayne and her staff was a great experience. They were always helpful and very efficient with their responses.
Cortellucci Family – Lake Joe Wonderland, August 2017
We rented Rocklands Glass House and we loved it so much! It was beautiful and had everything we needed! Over all my family and I were very very pleased with the whole experience! We will for sure rent again!
Natasha – Rocklands Glass House, August 2017
Torrance Castle was lovely and we enjoyed our stay.
Angela – Torrance Castle, August 2017
Wanderlust is exceptional, great boat house, beautiful lay out. An excellent property, priced correctly for the quality.
Michael and Michelle – Wanderlust, August 2017
The cottage, Breezes at Teesland, was exceptional. It fit our needs very well . As a matter of fact, we hope it will be available again next year.
Guest – Breezes at Teesland, August 2017
We very much enjoyed Eagle Hideaway. It was cottagey feeling and yet had all the modern luxuries.
Sharon – Eagle Hideaway, August 2017
Overall a great action and would love to rent Serenity again!
Sara and Terry – Serenity Beach, August 2017
This is my 3rd year renting the cottage through Jayne’s Cottage and the experience is getting better every year.
Damir – Y’Ol Point, August 2017
The cottage absolutely sparkled and we were welcomed upon arrival and had all the nuances explained to us by one of Jayne’s associates. The cottage was clean, cheery, not dated, had WIFI, Satellite and perfect size. Every morning, coffee in sunroom. Just terrific service and the staff delivered.
Guest – Rosseau Getaway, August 2017
We loved Open Invitation… such a gorgeous cottage with a beautiful lake. Working with Jayne’s Cottages was a wonderful experience – very professional and felt very taken care of.
Melissa – Open Invitation, August 2017
The cottage and property were great. Very spacious cottage with great indoor amenities. Loved “fire island” and its stone seating. Our concierge contact was great. It was really nice to have a direct contact with someone we could reach out to if we needed anything. He was very responsive, professional, courteous and seemed to genuinely care.
Simon – Laridae, August 2017
The cottage was stunning. It was one of the private cottages at Windermere House. Very luxurious, with access to all the Windermere House amenities. Restaurants, swimming area, activities such as horseshoes, tennis, shuffleboard, and a Marina steps away. The staff at the marina were fantastic. A great week for all four of us.
Bob & Anne Marie – Winderemere Cottages, August 2017
The cottage was what we expected, it met our expectations and our family had a great time there, the booking process was simple, the website was well organized.
Rory – Reverie, July 2017

Last summer, we rented a cottage in Muskoka from you, and we were extremely happy with it!
Jonathan – Comfort on Rosseau, August 2016
Thank you very much for everything. We had a wonderful time over the holidays. Happy New Year to you as well! We really, really enjoyed having Avaughn with us for the day. His food was incredible and he was a really interesting and enjoyable person to converse with. I very much hope to be able to book him again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend his services. Sara and her friend were both excellent as well. Everyone really enjoyed the massages. Was a perfect add-on to a day where we had to do nothing!! Thanks again.
Andrew – Harwood Cottage, August 2016
The cottage was beautiful with a great view of the lake! Easy to use and easy to maintain. Easy to find our way around during the power failure and the fact that many candles were provided was helpful. The golf cart provided was much appreciated and used! It was very easy getting around Bigwin island and everyone was very helpful.
Heather – Bigwin Luxury Golf Retreat, August 2016
The cottage could not have been better. It was a great experience where we felt we could relax, enjoy the beautiful beach, and not worry about anything. Very clean; felt like home. Excellent service; will definitely recommend to others.
Richard – Beach House, August 2016
Attractive modern architecture. Well equipped. Great dock and lakefront living. Outstanding views. Not too much boat traffic. 15 minutes from Port Carling. Jayne’s very prompt response time was outstanding. David’s introduction to the house technology was thorough and understandable. The response to some storm problems was greatly appreciated.
Mark & Marilyn – Muskoka’s White House, August 2016
It was great. just too bad they sold it as we wanted to rent there again next year. Perfect location close to all the things we used/needed. Tons of privacy from neighbours.
Matthew & Kate – Claire De Loon, August 2016
It was great. We all loved our holiday. Thanks so so much for everything. The location, privacy, water access were best about cottage. We need a cottage for next year!!! Bigger and better Maybe for July and August.
Elise & Ben – Sonshine Bay, August 2016
It was lovely, well maintained, and equipped with everything we needed. Overall thought the place was great.
Lindsey – Muskoka at Home, August 2016
The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The deck and dock/beach area were very nice.
Jennifer – Hemlock Ridge, August 2016
We rented Laridae. We were there with 3 young children and my husband’s parents. It was wonderfully peaceful. The island was very private with lots of places to explore. The sandy beach was great for the age of our children and the access to other areas was well maintained. Having a pontoon boat for the duration of our stay encouraged us to explore the waterways and was very convenient. We loved the kayaks. The house itself easily accommodated everyone and was every bit the cottage experience we enjoy. Overall though it was a fantastic experience being permitted to share another family’s wonderful island retreat and we hope to return in the future. As always Jayne, a wonderful rental. See you again soon.
Toni – Laridae, August 2016
Cottage was clean and well stocked and appointed for 10 people!
Glen – Muskoka at Home, August 2016
The cottage was great. It was spacious and well kept and had everything we needed. The boat house was great for the teenage kids to hang out and have their own space.
Deb – Somervilla, August 2016
I would definitely rent from you again as well as refer friends to your company. It was very reassuring to know that you were always available, quick to answer any inquiries that we had prior to our rental as well as during. Stopping in to introduce yourself was a nice touch. Thanks for accommodating our needs, we look forward to renting from you again.
Marylyn – Bala Boathouse, July 2016
We are really happy with the cottage. Your information email and booklet have been so helpful and totally needed, so thank you very much. LOVE the cake and beers were so thoughtful. Totally hit the spot upon arrival. Thanks for everything. And most importantly, this cottage is so incredibly clean, it has been so easy and a pleasure to move in.
Guest – Fox Hollow, July 2016
The place is lovely and elegant. We all commented on what a good sleep we had last night, part due to the extended day/jet lag, no doubt, but also because of the comfortable beds and linen, and, generally, the relaxed feeling of being ‘at home.
Guest – Rosseau Getaway, July 2016
The Lakeview Cottage was the perfect location for our work retreat. We spent two nights there in the summer, meeting during the days in the sunroom, and spending afternoons and evenings cooking, socializing on the expansive deck, and enjoying the water. I can’t say enough about how perfectly situated and appointed the cottage is, feeling like you are miles from everything in a rustic lakeside cabin, yet easily accessible and perfectly comfortable. On top of this, Jayne worked with us to make everything fit our needs, from timing to sleeping arrangements. She met us on site when we arrived, and was available by phone when we had questions. We will be back at Lakeview or another of Jayne’s cottages.
Dylan – Lakeview, 2016
After talking to Jayne several times, she recommended a very suitable and great cottage which perfectly exceeded our expectations. She kindly gave several options which all were suitable and explained details regarding each cottage and its amenities which was very useful. The cottage was very clean and neat, just like the pictures presented. We were very impressed by Jayne’s great service and positive attitude while answering questions and being in touch for every detail required.
Sina – Woodcastle, January 2016
The cottage was clean and beautiful and provided my family with days of quiet enjoyment. Jayne was available to answer any of our questions and made sure that the front walk was clean, the heat was on and that there was plenty of firewood available for our use. Our stay at “The White House” was one of the best family holidays I can remember. We look forward to going back!!
Meyrl – Muskoka’s White House, January 2016
Jayne was very easy to work with and was super responsive with any questions I had prior to the stay. The cottage was nothing less than what our group imagined – it was beautiful and we had a delighted stay. We will definitely be booking again!
Baljot – Torrance Castle, January 2016
Ellen was my second rental with Jayne’s Cottages during the 2015 season. We had such a great experience the first time, I knew exactly who to contact for our second rental. Jayne takes all the hassle and apprehension out of renting an unknown property. You can believe the descriptions, the photos, and the high level of customer service… It’s all true!! We also rented a boat through Jayne, and even had a SUP Yoga class at our cottage… everyone was a pleasure to deal with. The cottage and boathouse on Ellen Island are straight out of Cottage Life magazine!! The decor is exactly what you would hope for in Muskoka… and being on your own island is an amazing experience! We especially loved the fact that we could let our dogs run free without any worry whatsoever. We are very grateful we had the opportunity to enjoy a true Muskoka vacation in such a unique setting. We can’t wait to go back!!
Laurie – Ellen Island, October 2015
This past summer, we rented a cottage through Jayne. The cottage had everything that we were looking for and more. Jayne and her associates were both highly professional and very attentive making sure that our stay was enjoyable. We had a great family time and plan to do it all again this summer with Jayne’s help.
Nick – Chez Shay, August 2015
This was our first time to the Muskoka Lakes region. From helping us pick out a cottage that was perfect for our family to booking a ski boat and arranging tubing equipment, Jayne was a very helpful. I would highly recommend Jayne’s Cottages. We had a fantastic vacation, and it all started with Jayne’s help.
Bill – Claire de Loon, August 2015
Jayne was very helpful with recommending which cottage would be best suit our needs. I loved that she was able to book the chef and spa services and help with the boat rental. It was so convenient! When vacationing again, we will definitely look at booking through Jayne’s cottages.
John – Four Winds, July 2015
Jayne is fabulous. She is always available and always helpful. If any problem arises she is very quick to rectify the issue. Her knowledge of the Muskoka area is invaluable.
Lisa – Chalet Maple, July 2015
JAYNE IS SUPERB!!! She is incredibly organized, knowledgeable, expediate, interested in your concerns. She is a joy to work with and incredibly dependable. She works hard on your behalf and searches out whatever your needs are. Just a wonderful experience for everyone!!!
Johanna & Bridgette – Tamarack, July 2015
The cottage was great, both in terms of the facilities and the land (private; west-facing). We also found Jayne’s web site very thorough and up-to-date (unlike others viewed); very easy to navigate and with all the information we needed to assess the choices.
