The kitchen offers all the comforts of home, whether you choose to cook indoors or BBQ, you'll find everything you need from the larger items, right down to measuring spoons and a cheese grater!!

Our living and dining areas are open concept and offer a great view of the river. The dining table seats 6 comfortably plus we also have an outdoor patio table which seats 4. There are extra patio chairs if needed!

There's a television, DVD player and VCR in the living room, as well as a radio. There are 3 bedrooms; 2 of the bedrooms have double beds and the third has twin bunk beds.

There's lots of kids movies on VHS or bring your own DVD's. There's also a good selection of board games and playing cards.

The Bunkie features a wood stove, a large living area with a futon and bar sized fridge plus a separate room with a double and single bed. A great place for teens or in-laws!

We have a spacious, grassy yard; so bring those outdoor toys. The area closer to the water has a fire pit and there is a little, sandy area. The water is shallow as you enter and deepens by the time you reach the end of the dock.

Jaspen park is on the other side of the river, a great paddle boat trip!! Pack a picnic lunch and make an afternoon of it.

We spent a wonderful week at Russels Retreat in Bala the first week of July. The owner met us there at 11am, yes early in the day so we could start our vacation asap. Gave us a quick tour and was on her way.

The cottage was cozy and very clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, cutlery, pots, pans, and full BBQ tank with another in reserve just in case. The refrigerator/freezer was clean and ready to be filled.

The deck had a lovely patio set which was sunny and warm all day long. There were toys for the beach, chairs for the dock and a pedal boat for touring.

The only downfall for the whole week was the fire pit, and although there was a fire ban, it was flooded and my only recommendation would be to move it up to the upper level for when the ban is raised.

The owner was kind and friendly and also left a wonderful gift basket full of goodies that we could all enjoy.

I would recommend this cottage because it's within walking distance to quaint little boutiques, the beer store, LCBO, grocery store, ice cream shop the water ski show every Tuesday at Windsor Park and most of all, Dons Bakery, the best Chelsea Buns and Scones I've ever had!

Oh, and check out time is 6pm, so you can enjoy your vacation to the very last minute!

Owner response:
Dear Diane,

From our family to yours, thank you so much for your fantastic review!

We are extremely pleased that you enjoyed your vacation at our cottage and were able to experience all that the charming town of Bala has to offer!!!

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the flooding in the fire-pit; it is due to a water main breakage and The Township of Muskoka Lakes has assessed the situation and assured us that they are working to resolve the issue in a timely manner as we are not the only property affected. I appreciate your suggestion of moving the pit, hopefully the problem will be resolved and it won't be necessary but if the flooding persists I will purchase a portable fire pit so our guests can enjoy a fire. I know roasting marshmallows is one of my kids' favorite things to do....even if they don't eat them.... so having a fire pit here is a must!!!

Once again, I would like to sincerely thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure having your family at our cottage and we would love to have you back!

Jennifer
