Guest Reviews

Everything was perfect! by Kelly 08/28/2022
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.
