We were a group of 11 guys that rented Island View Retreat for a weekend in early May and it was PERFECT!

The location is great. The cottage is well placed between Ottawa and Kingston but you feel like you're a couple hours north and wouldn't guess how accessible it is. When you're at the cottage, you can't see the neighbours since there is enough distance and trees around and you have a real good feeling of privacy. There is however Camp's Bay marina right around the corner for any small things you may need to buy or if you need to rent a boat for your stay. There are some really great fishing spots close to the cottage and you really don't need to boat far to find a perfect anchoring spot for the morning!

The owners are extremely agreeable and made the experience of renting the cottage (on short notice) very pleasant. They are involved and invested in your stay and it is clear that they want you to enjoy your visit as much as you do. Access was easy and it was very clear what we had to bring ourselves vs what would be provided. We did make the mistake of assuming blankets would be included, so just note that "no linens" means no sheets or blankets (owners helped us find a solution and made sure we were taken care of in our case!). Otherwise, all cooking tools, bbq and everything else we needed was there. Awesome selection of board games as well.

Otherwise, kayaks, fireplace, and outdoor activities were great! A perfect stay!

Thank you! We will be back!

We had a wonderful time at the Island View Retreat. The grandness of this waterfront cottage must be seen to be truly appreciated as it is more of a Lake Lodge than a cottage!

We are a 3 generations family and there was something for each generation to enjoy.
Some of our highlights:
The sandy beach with shallow entry into water for the little ones
The waterside fire pit
The nearby islands you can explore (pack a lunch and spend the day)!
Spending hours lazing about in the luxury lawn furniture
The air conditioners were a life saver in the few humid days we had
The water toys - so fun to get out onto the water
The unobstructed, beautiful views of the lake

We can't wait to return next summer - thank you for being such accommodating and helpful hosts!

Amazing cottage!
Stayed for 1 week mid August. Absolutely NO bugs. Cottage and property were immaculate! Cottage was very spacious (4 adults and 2 children with LOTS of extra space). Tons of comfortable seating both indoors and outdoors. LOVED the kayaks and paddle boards! The convenience store at Camps Bay (neighbouring property) was an added bonus - saved us a few trips into town.
Owners were outstanding to deal with - very friendly and quick to respond to any questions.
Highly recommend this cottage rental. We absolutely will be coming back next year!

This is our third year staying in this cottage. It is our home away from home. It has everything our multi generational family needs. The new kayaks and paddle boards were a great addition. Memories made on Big Gull Lake will be cherished forever.

The Island View Retreat is truly a hidden gem! Since the 1980s, we have been visiting Big Gull Lake every summer and vacationing there for over 40 years. This was our first visit to Island View Retreat, and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences of our lives! We brought our children and grandkids along, and we were blown away by the spaciousness of the property and layout - you would never have known we had 14 people there! It felt like we had our own private bay to enjoy each day. Throughout the week, we swam, used the stand-up paddle boards, and enjoyed kayaking every day. The cottage is fully equipped as if you were at home - they've thought of absolutely everything you could possibly need. Definitely plan on visiting again in 2022!!!
