Welcome to Twin Pines cottage for a real cottage experience. Lovingly built in the 1950s, it has been modified throughout the years all the while retaining that rustic cottage feel. It is very well suited for family vacation or a couple's retreat. It is the kind of place that you will fall in love with and want to return to.

You will find Twin Pines cottage on the shores of Lake St Peter nestled amongst the centenarian pines and mature birch trees. Situated 15 feet above the shoreline, with a westerly exposure, it is a welcoming sight after your long drive and it will be your cottage home for the next few days or weeks. Whether you are seeking a quiet and relaxing retreat or a family fun vacation, it is the place you. Choose springtime for some quiet time and enjoy the awakening of the forest and spring flowers. Summer is the most popular time as the lake comes alive with happy cottagers here to enjoy all that the lake has to offer, hiking, swimming, boating, water skiing and fishing. Fall is also a favorite, still warm but quieter than the summer time. Let the fall colours spectacle enhance your senses as you take that early morning walk or relax with your coffee on the deck.

Twin Pines Cottage features three bedrooms with two double beds and a bunk bed for the kids. Should you need more space or privacy, the bunkie has one double bed in a bedroom and one double bunk bed in the common area. There is one small, functional bathroom in the cottage that includes a shower.

My husband and our 2 year old toddler stayed in this cottage for the weekend of June 19-21 and we had the most amazing time. Pictures really do not do justice. The entire property is very private and secluded for a wonderful getaway if you want to be in touch with nature and everything it has to offer. We celebrated our son's 2nd birthday here and it was absolutely beautiful. Please note if you are planning to bring a child here, you must be aware that you MUST supervise your kid at all times, as the cottage is on a hill and it maybe dangerous for a child on the loose. Anyhow, the property is quite nicely maintained - very nice touches; has a very "homely" feel to the entire place. We had a nice time using the canoe and kayak as well and went for a swim during the afternoons when the sun is nice and hot. We would most definitely recommend this place and we hope to go back again soon! The hosts, Ed and Kim were so very friendly and was easy to communicate with if we had any questions or concerns. Thank you both for letting us have a wonderful stay :)

We, a group of six, had a lovely time relaxing at Twin Pines Cottage on Thanksgiving long weekend.
Very nice place, everything as advertised! Warm and cozy cottage that felt like home.
Kim and Ed, lovely and gracious hosts, they got everything daily necessities you need in the cottage.One pink sweet wine made by hosts even add more sweetness and happiness to our holiday's dinner. With a wonderful motorboat cruise experience on lake St. Peter, ED brought us unexpected pleasure and joy. Definitely, it was a great cottage experience.
Thanks Kim and ED!

On returning from a week at Twin Pines in early October we were immediately thrust into family visits, busy Thanksgiving, winterizing our rural property & garden, and volunteering in the federal election -- all while wishing dreamily that we were still basking in the serenity of this cosy haven.
It was just my husband and self as we saw out the end of summer with a final swim, and the arrival of autumn with the warmth of an excellent woodstove, and stunning sunsets over the lake.
The cottage really did have everything we needed, and confess we were glad our relatives didn't join us! The washroom and bedrooms are small, as advertised, and I don't think we would have wanted to share with more than one other adult couple. We did, however, wish it was 20 years ago, and we had our kids with us, as this felt like a perfect spot for a family vacation.
The cottage and property were immaculate, everything in perfect working order (incl great wifi and a silent dishwasher!). Anything and everything we might have wanted was either there or -- we were told repeatedly and believe! -- at the owner's house at the top of the hill.
Kim & Ed could not have been more generous, but always 100% respectful of our privacy. Our lives are busy, and the best thing about being at Twin Pines was the quiet and seclusion. That's why we go in the off season, and it did not disappoint. Wrapping up in blankets and sitting in the gazebo early morning and into the evenings under starry skies was divine.

A great cottage with old school charm and all the comforts of home away from home.
Practically every window has a view that's postcard picture perfect.
It even made the washing up after meals a relaxing task.
(And if that doesn't float your boat?one word: DISHWASHER!)

With multiple seating areas, you can chase the sun or shade around the property, depending on your mood.
Day time spent swimming off the dock, lounging on the deck or under the sun shelter.
Evenings gathered around a well-stocked campfire and listening to it crackle and pop while looking out over the lake. BLISS!!!!

Ed and Kim are charming and gracious hosts who make sure you want for nothing.
This was our second summer at Twin Pines and it definitely won't be our last!!!!!

Ed was a gracious and lovely host. His cottage is very private and the lake is beautiful and very clean to swim in. We would recommend going sometime in late August, while it's still hot and there are less mosquitos / horse flies. The house had everything you need with tons of patio spots outdoors. Ed also gave us a wonderful tour of the lake on his motorboat, and spoke to us all about the history of the lake. very awesome experience!
