    This cottage was more then we expected. Great week for the entire family and will definitely make this an annual trip. Thanks again Mike!

  2. Burns Family says:

    My family spent a week in July at Mike’s cottage and couldn’t have asked for more. The cottage was wonderful in every way……..above our expectations.

    The quality of the cottage, the full list of amenities, the beach badminton area, the water island, the integrated sound system, the media area……Mike has really thought of everything, for all ages.

    The view from the cottage is breathtaking and the convience of having the water only steps away is hard to find.

    As a family we have the priviledge of being able to travel quite a bit, and our week at Mike’s cottage was one of the best vacations we have had………!!

    Thank you again Mike……we will be back…..for years to come.

    We stayed for our University Alumni reunion. What an excellent place. First class facilities specially for a large group (meeting and socializing) and of course environmentally friendly cottage (Geo thermal heating and cooling). Planning to make it annual family get together :-).
    Thanks again Mike.

    This was by far the most amazing cottage my Husband and I have ever stayed in! Mike has literally thought of everything to make the cottage experience as much fun as it is relaxing, luxurious as it is comfortable! We had so much fun in the sand volleyball court and we loved how clean and clear the lake was!

    The cottage is huge but still feels cozy- and it is perfect for any type of family or friend gathering.

    We truly can’t wait to come back and thank you Mike for being so friendly and accomodating!

    We had a WONDERFUL time at your cottage. We couldn’t have asked for anything else, your cottage and location on Crystal Lake is beautiful. That was our first trip up North to a cottage & it for sure won’t be our last. EVERYTHING was perfect !! Thank you again Mike for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your summer home !!!!

  6. The Pearce's says:

    Our family of 13 had an amazing week at your cottage! The amenities were incredible and the cottage was way beyond our expectations! Our 3 families certainly took advantage of all of the great amenities you have available and we all could have easily stayed another week!

    Mike, you’ve done an amazing job! We look forward to coming back again!

    Stayed at this amazing cottage for the weekend and it had everything we needed. Big, new, clean, high end finishing on everithing, with a nice setup and an ever better view. It had more than enough space outdoors and indoors. We were a group of 14 and we all had a good time.
    Mike was a good host and would like to thank him 🙂
    Definitely recommend staying here:)

    My family and two other families stayed at this cottage over New Years Eve. Every single one of us loved it and thought that the place was amazing. It is a beautiful cottage with everything you could possibly need for a great time. The stunning view from the deck of the snow covered trees, while the kids ice skated on the frozen lake is a picture in my mind that I will hold with me for a long time. It is one of the nicest cottages that we have stayed at and I would recommend it to anyone who asked.

    Everyone at Wave Makers International ( would like to thank Mike Rizzo for an incredible Team Retreat June 1-8th at this stunning Lake House on Crystal Lake. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left our experience was beyond exceptional. The home is beautiful, clean and super well equiped. The rooms were extremely comfortable, the kitchen is gorgeous and we had fantastic workouts and yoga sessions on the terrace facing the lake. We can’t wait to get back there! Thank you Mike!

  11. Beth Williams says:

    My sister-in-law won a weekend at this fabulous cottage….if you can call it that…. It was so amazing we spent the whole time in awe at the place. Peaceful and quite, beautiful location we hated to leave and can’t wait to book our next trip. The place was better than the pictures we had 8 people and each family had their own floor. If you get a chance to stay at this place you will not be disappointed.

  12. Tina Myers says:

    We had a chance to spend a week at My Lakefront Cottage in March 2013. The weather was amazing we had so much fun in the snow yet felt so mild. The Cottage itself was breathtaking and had everything we needed and more for a relaxing vacation with our Family. There was more than enough room for everyone. Nearby attractions were also great, we went to a nearby sugar bush for breakfast and tour, local artisans museum and Sir Sam’s had there end of year event that is hilarious. Our family likes to hike and the outdoors, so we spent some time on the trails in Kinmount and they are fabulous, we seen several deer. Seeing all the snowmobiles makes me want one! I look forward to experience our other 3 seasons at his cottage.
    Thanks Mike for a wonderful week.

  13. Colleen says:

    For the last 3 years my family of 14 has gotten together at a cottage in Ontario for a week in July. Cottages for a large family are hard to find, we found this cottage was perfect for all ages 5 through 70. It is as the website states and has absolutely breathtaking views of the lake. It truly is a paradise just outside the city and has everything you need. Bring clothes, bathing suit and food and you will have a great time. Mike is a great owner and has built a fabulous lake front cottage.

  14. The Lee Family & Friends - September 7, 2013 says:

    A group of family and friends got together for my daughter’s birthday party and had a fantastic time! Everyone commented on how well designed the cottage is with a sitting area on each level that allows you to enjoy unmatched vistas of the lake.

    The multi level cottage (luxury home in the wild) allows a large group of people to hang out without ever feeling crowded or tight. In particular the entertainment area situated in the basement is cleverly designed so that people sleeping in the upper levels are never disturbed.

    The cottage has a well equipped kitchen that made meal making easy and has one of the best dining tables I’ve ever seen that comfortably seated our group of 16 adults and kids.

    There are plenty of things to do outside including canoeing, boating, badminton, fishing (we caught several nice sized small mouth bass) and if you’re lucky enough as we were hot tubbing! … Kids of all ages truly had a great time relaxing and enjoying all of the cottage’s amenities.

    Caution for those who need to stay connected, cell reception is spotty but Mike provides wifi at a price! …

    Aside from having a small hiccup with getting into the cottage we had a very positive experience and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. Everyone agreed that we need to revisit Crystal Lake again next summer.

    Thanks to Mike for providing such a welcoming cottage, and such a wonderful experience. Thanks for being accommodating with us and I look forward to renting from you in the near future.

  15. T. Hawthorne says:

    My family from out west and Toronto joined us for a wonderful week up at this cottage. We all had a comfortable and relaxing stay, with plenty of room for cooking big meals, sitting out on the deck or jumping in the lake. I think the person who enjoyed it the most was my 88 year old grandmother! The kids had a blast to playing badminton, jumping on the water trampoline and taking my dad out in the row boat. Thanks, Mike for allowing us to make family memories at your beautiful lakefront cottage.

    Vlogiannitis family says:

    “We recently returned from a weekend at Mike’s amazing cottage & were blown away by how beautiful it is both inside and out. The interior of the cottage is immaculately clean and has all the luxurious touches that anyone could possibly want such as a multi-jet shower, leather couches & flat screen TV’s. The kitchen is very large and modern and I must say we enjoyed cooking in it! This is by far, the most incredible cottage we have ever seen. The layout and design is very smart and allows couples to have their privacy if needed. We loved having the water steps from the door and had so much fun paddling around the lake and fishing from the private dock. This is the first time we have been to a cottage and stayed outside practically the whole time because there is so much to do! The view of the lake is quite breathtaking and created such a peaceful and relaxing weekend. Thank you Mike for letting us stay at your cottage. We would highly recommend this place to anyone without hesitation!”

    I spent three days at My Lake Front Cottage this winter for the Moose Knuckle photo shoot and it was breathtaking! We came to the cottage with a very large group and although there were over 20 people in the cottage it was spacious enough for all of us!
    When I started to scout out a room for myself I couldn’t choose as they were all gorgeous and full of natural light! The cottage was charming and beautiful and the roomy hot tub overlooking the lake was the cherry on top.
    I came to My Lakefront Cottage for a modelling job yet it ended up being more of a vacation for myself. My experience at My Lakefront Cottage was amazing and I can’t wait to come back!
    Thank you so much !

  18. Marie's family & 4 other families says:

    I rented this cottage with 4 other families in August of 2013. It is a beautiful cottage and we’d go back again. We’ve rented many cottages together and this was one that we all agreed was a great place to stay. We loved the nice, big kitchen and the really large kitchen table. We really enjoyed ourselves. The owner, Mike, was very friendly and helpful.

Mike the owner is very helpful with ideas for what we can do in the area and very accommadating. I would love to go back for a summer experience!

  22. Dane says:

    A group of 12 guys stayed here for a golf trip and we absolutely loved it. The cottage is amazing and has everything you need. It is very clean and well kept. There was more than enough room for all of us to sleep comfortably. None of us wanted to leave. Definitely going to be renting this in the future. Mike, can’t think you enough for renting this out to my friends and I.

  25. Linda k says:

    My large family and I had a great time at mikes cottage. Mike is also a great guy to work with and made things easy for us. We were only able to stay the weekend and so we didn’t want to leave when the time came! The only issue we had was the creepy neighbor. Many of my family members saw the neighbor constantly looking from his porch or deck. And it made us feel very uncomfortable. We also felt like victims of racism due to the neighbor not responding to a wave of a hand or a smile.

    • AnnieVee says:

      We on the other hand found the neighbour to be very friendly. His children played with our children the whole time. I’m sure that he just did not see you wave or smile.

  26. Michael & Adrienne Sloan says:

    My very large family of 16.had a great time at the lakefront Cottage.
    We certainly enjoyed all of the Winter activities,skating and snowball fights were a blast.
    We found the kitchen had everything we needed and combined with the super large table it was a great area for the generations to hang out together.
    The large windows provided some lovely views and we enjoyed walks in the freshly fallen snow.
    All in all this was a super place for sharing time with all our our family.

  27. Clarence Bouwman says:

    Great place, Mike. Our family had an unforgettable time in your cottage – even tho we had to wash the dishes by hand (and maybe that just helped with the conversations!). Watching that turtle find, catch and consume his supper was certainly an extra highlight! Highly recommended!
