“A relaxing and wonderful stay. Beautiful house.”
Reviewed 14 December 2014 for a stay in August 2014

It's was hard to do anything but relax, unwind, and have fun with friends at this little piece of heaven. The Hermitage was exactly what we were looking for to 'get away from it all' and to catch up with our Canadian friends as we visited from Scotland. It was the perfect place to holiday and experience a side of Canada we find so unique and rustic. Not only is the scenery stunning, tranquil and welcoming. The Hermitage offered us it's comfort and luxury with welcoming arms. We were all in awe of the grandeur yet homely atmosphere the owners have created. It was home from home but on a more spacious and relaxing scale. We particularly loved cooking and conversing in the kitchen. We made many a feast!
The boat house was a lovely edition. We had a lot of fun on the lake and felt with nature here. After swimming we sat at the boathouse overlooking the water as the sun set on our little piece of paradise. It was very peaceful, a moment to remember.
It has to be said we didn't want to leave. The owners did a fantastic job at making us feel welcome and accommodated our needs perfectly. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

“Amazing Experience in the Heart of Muskoka!”
Reviewed 6 December 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I was initially a little bit unsure about going to a cottage in the Fall, thinking it might not be as fun as the Summer but I was completely wrong! This cottage is fully loaded with tons of fun stuff to do inside and out at any time of the year. It's right in the heart of the forest and on a beautiful secluded lake that barely has any other cottages in view. It was so peaceful on the water, you really feel like you are the only person for miles. After exploring the nature trails around the cottage during the day, we spent a few hours in the games room playing all my childhood favourites (Foosball, billiards, air hockey etc.) and if we ever got cold from sitting around the fire at night we would just pop into the sauna and warm up in seconds! I had a truly incredible experience and will most definitely be back!

“A perfect and relaxing escape from the city!”
Reviewed 13 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Our stay at Le Hermitage Review,

We recently returned from an incredibly relaxing long weekend at Le Hermitage. Located just north of Toronto it was nestled away in a beautiful area in Muskoka, it provided all the warmth and necessities of home, perfectly isolated on the shores of Skeleton Lake. Arriving after dark we awoke the following morning to amazing views of the lake. A frozen waterfall was only a short drive away!

The home is very spacious but maintains a cozy and comfortable atmosphere. 9 of us fit comfortably in the main house. A games room with pool table, shuffleboard and foosball table provided a great spot for evening entertaining while the living room on the ground floor was perfect for relaxing afternoons around the fireplace. The boys were happy with the satellite HDTV for Hockey Night in Canada in the large den. The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher, microwave and oven and has an open concept making it an excellent spot to be while preparing meals for the day.

It is an amazing location and if you are looking for a modern cottage away from the crowds, Le Hermitage is perfect! We are already looking forward to our next stay there!
