Seconds by Alf 09/18/2018
This was our second year with Jayne’s and very happy. Turtle Bay is great. We would definitely rent this one again. Maybe next year?
Spectacular by Marjorie 07/15/2018
Excellent water toys for swimmers. Not suitable shallow water for non-swimmers (rocks and debris underfoot). Great accommodation for children and adults. Fabulous Muskoka room. Wonderful boathouse deck. Biggest drawback was lack of a/c. Great showers and water pressure! All in all a spectacular property. I am a huge fan of the service (such as stocking groceries, towel supplies, garbage collection and water jugs) and the service staff of Jayne’s Cottages. I highly recommend it to anyone considering a Muskoka cottage rental!!
