Terms and Conditions of All Rentals
GENERAL The cottage property (the “Cottage”) is provided by the owner or an agent or other authorized party (the “Owner”), and is offered by Water's Edge Vacation Rentals Inc. operating as Rent Cottage (the “Company” or "Cottage Vacations") as vacation rental accommodation for the applicant (the “Renter”) named on the cottage rental application completed by the Renter (the “Cottage Rental Application”) according to the terms and conditions as set out in the Cottage Rental Application and the following terms and conditions. RESTRICTIONS The Renter agrees to abide by the restrictions, terms, and conditions set forth by the Owner and shall be responsible for any and all guests’ adherence to such restrictions, terms, and conditions. PAYMENT Bookings shall be confirmed in writing by the Company upon the approval of the Cottage Rental Application and receipt of a deposit in the amount of 30% of the total booking amount. The balance of the rental fees shall be due and payable 90 days prior to the first day of the rental period (payable either by post-dated cheque or online banking – there will be a 3% handling fee if you would like to pay the balance by Visa or Mastercard). If the Renter applies to book a Cottage and the Cottage Rental Application is approved less than 90 days before the commencement of the rental period, the total payment is due immediately and can be paid by credit card (plus a 3% handling fee) or such other payment method as agreed to by the Company, and only upon receipt of same will confirmation of rental be issued by the Company. The issuance of written confirmation to the Renter by the Company shall complete a binding contract between the Renter and the Owner. All payments are made to “CottageVacations.com.”. CHANGES IN ACCOMMODATION Requests by the Renter for alternative accommodation may be provided at the sole and absolute discretion of the Company if the request is made more than 90 days before the start of the booking period. There will be an additional administrative charge of $199.00 (plus HST) per week or part thereof. Requests by the Renter for an alternative rental period (without a change in Cottage selected) may be provided at the sole and absolute discretion of the Company if the request is made more than 90 days before the start of the booking period originally selected. There will be an additional administrative charge of $99.00 (plus HST) per week or part thereof. In the event that the Company must change a booking for any reason after confirmation or where the reserved Cottage is withdrawn from the rental pool, the Company will make reasonable commercial efforts to arrange for accommodation of a similar type, location, cost and standard as the original booking. If these are not acceptable or there are no properties available, then the Renter agrees to accept a full refund of monies paid to the Company. Any additional costs incurred due to cancellation or change in accommodation are the sole responsibility of the Renter. CANCELLATION Any cancellation made by the Renter must be in writing to the Company. Any cancellation greater than 90 days before Check In are entitled to a full refund, less a Cancellation fee of $199.00. If the cancellation is within 90 days of check in, the Company will only issue a refund if they can successfully re-book the accommodation for the entire period booked, which re-booking is subject to the consent of the Owner, the Company shall refund to the Renter all monies paid less a cancellation fee of $199.00 (plus HST) per cancelled week or part thereof. If the Company is able to re-book the accommodation for only part of the period originally booked, which re-booking is subject to the consent of the Owner, the Company shall refund the monies paid relating to the re-booked period, less a cancellation fee of $199.00 (plus HST) per cancelled week or part thereof. If the Company is unable to re-book the cottage, there will be no refund to the Renter. SECURITY DEPOSIT The Company shall be entitled to collect from the Renter a Security Deposit up to 20% of the value of total rental amount as security for any damage caused by the Renter. The Company reserves the right to be the final arbiter for any damage caused by the Renter and Renter Guests and will determine the amount of any full or partial payment to be deducted from the Security Deposit. The Security Deposit can be 100% forfeited should the Guest breach any terms of this Rental Agreement. The Security Deposit will be released less damages and other costs after the Guest has departed from the Property and the Company (or his representative) has had an opportunity to inspect it for any damage, which will be within seven (7) days after departure. In the event that damages, and other costs exceed the Security Deposit, the excess will be automatically charged to the Renter’s credit card. REPRESENTATION The information contained in any printed materials or photographs is believed to be accurate at the time of publication. The Company reserves the right to make any changes to such materials which the Company deems necessary to more accurately reflect the Cottage property. The Company gives no warranty, express or implied, as to the state of the Cottage or otherwise and accepts no liability for any act, omission, or default on the part of the Owner or the Renter. All personal property at the Cottage, including but not limited to boats, motors, TV’s, and other such amenities, are supplied at the discretion of the Owner as an added feature for the Renter. While every attempt will be made to ensure that such amenities are in working order for a Renter’s vacation, should any breakdown or other situation occur whereby these items are not available for the term of the rental period, neither the Company or the Owner take responsibility for replacing or refunding the Renter for the lack of use of these elements. The Renter agrees to notify the Company immediately of any deficiencies in the amenities provided. OCCUPANCY Any Renter who has guests at the property in excess of the pre-authorized number (specifically those named on the rental application form) shall be subject to either immediate eviction without refund or a $250.00 (plus HST) per night per guest charge, at the absolute discretion of the Company and the Owner. The Company has a “no parties” or excessive noise policy and zero tolerance regarding this issue. Subletting of the Cottage is not permitted under any circumstances. Where separate parties will be occupying the cottage property at different time periods, Cottage Rental Application Forms must be completed by each such party. Camping, tenting, trailers or other additional accommodation facilities will not be allowed unless previous written permission has been granted through the Company. Please note that ANY person, REGARDLESS of age is counted as a person in the occupancy of a cottage. Check-in and check-out times are to be adhered to, unless otherwise arranged through the consent of the Company. Early arrival and/or late departure will result in a charge of $200.00 (plus HST). No fireworks or excessive noise are permitted. PETS Bringing, or allowing, a pet at a ‘no pet’ cottage or bringing more pets than have been approved on your application will result in immediate eviction and the Renter will be charged a fee of $350.00 (plus HST). The Company does not take responsibility for allergies or other conditions arising at any cottage, whether noted “no pets” or otherwise. Whether a Cottage may have a “no pets” policy does not mean that there have not been pets on/in the premises previously.

The Renter agrees to read and abide by the Household Rules, as stated in the Life at the Cottage package and/or posted at the cottage, and to use the inventory and equipment in a safe and responsible manner. Any additional cleaning required, breakage or damage to inventory, equipment or any other part of cottage property, above and beyond normal “wear and tear” will result in additional charges to the Renter’s credit card.

The Renter agrees that they are responsible for their own safety and that of their family, friends, guests and invitees. The Renter acknowledges and agrees that the use of any lakes, rivers, or other waterfront areas are not supervised by any lifeguards or other such persons and therefore any use of such waterfront areas by the Renter, guests or invitees is at their own risk.

Description ↑↓

This beautifully decorated, 4-bedroom cottage sits perched above the clear waters of Kawagama Lake, recognized among the cleanest lakes in Ontario, with a spectacular view across the lake and neighboring islands to the rolling hills of Algonquin Park in the distance. Located in the County of Haliburton (bordering the east side of the District of Muskoka), the cottage is a 25-minute drive from the charming village of Dorset. A combination of Oriental and Canadiana décor, design motifs, and art reflect the owners’ lives and work in Asia and roots in Canada. In the event of a power failure, a well muffled standby generator automatically starts up and powers the entire cottage, including appliances, the water system, and internet connection until electrical service is restored. A strong wireless internet connection will support a family working and studying online, including Zoom and other conference platforms.

Entered through a red door and a mudroom with beautiful custom cabinetry, the open concept main floor features peaked ceilings, warm oak flooring, and wood-paneled walls. The beautiful kitchen includes fine cabinetry, high-end appliances, virtually every cooking accessory needed to produce gourmet meals, a peninsula countertop that is a perfect gathering place for preparing meals with friends, and a separate coffee and bar counter and cabinet. The kitchen opens to the dining room, where a beautiful harvest table sits atop a Central Asian carpet, flanked by an antique pine hutch. Accessible from the kitchen and dining room, the living rooms feature a peaked ceiling, a beautiful raised-hearth fireplace trimmed in Algonquin stone, and spacious window seat with a stunning view of the lake—a magnet for conversation over morning coffee or curling up with a book. Large windows across the lakeside front of the cottage allow for plenty of natural light and lake views from the kitchen, dining area, and living room. Two bedrooms decorated with Canadiana furniture and a four-piece bathroom with lovely cabinetry complete the main floor. With table seating for eight, the front deck is perfect for a sundowner or dining with a view of the lake. The covered rear porch offers a comfortable place to watch the kids enjoy the grassy play area.

The finished basement features a family room with comfortable seating, a flat-panel television, and a built-in home theater sound system for watching DVDs or Amazon FireTV—the combination perfect for providing kids with a bit of privacy from the adults. A third bedroom features a continued mix of antique furniture and Asian decorative pieces, with a double bed, while a cozy bunk room with built-in bunks, a spacious refrigerator for stocking up on food and beverage, and a bar cabinet offers comfortable sleeping space for 2 adults or a retreat for 3 kids. An additional three-piece bathroom includes a glass-walled rainforest shower and natural stone trim. The service room houses a frontloading washer and dryer combination, the well water filtration and treatment system, and a built-in vacuum unit.

From the cottage, a pathway of approximately 55 steps leads down to the waterfront. The platform dock with a ramp connecting it to a large floating dock is ideal for morning coffee, soaking up the sun's rays in Muskoka chairs, and waterfront entertainment by day, and marveling at the evening call of loons beneath a canopy of stars. The shoreline platform dock includes a swim ladder and a convenient lower ledge off the front ends of the dock, from which to slip into the water for a refreshing dip. Use the three-seat family canoe, the paddleboat, or the two single-seat kayaks to explore the beauty and tranquility of the lake. The large floating dock is an excellent place to tie up a boat (there are several boat launches on the lake for those who wish to bring their powerboat), and to catch the final hours of sun in the afternoon as the shoreline platform dock becomes shaded. To one side of the dock a small point is perfect for casting a line, while a larger grassy area backed by natural cap rock on the opposite side is ideal for reading or an afternoon snooze. A small bunkie provides storage for paddles, fishing gear, and water toys and for changing for a swim.

The driveway slopes down to the level parking area and grassy area that is gently sloped near the parking area and flattens towards the entrance of the cottage. This provides a great play area for kids and easy access when loading and unloading vehicles. The Weber Genesis grill sits an easy distance from the cottage.

The pristine, forested neighborhood is a paradise for quiet walks to cliff-top vistas, the Hollow River, and Kawagama Lake Dam, exercise runs, mountain biking, and picking wild raspberries on the gravel road and trails that run through the crown land wilderness.As one of the more popular areas, excursions into Dorset and Baysville are a must. Small towns filled with local favourites like the Dorset Tower, Humble Pie, the original Lake of Bays Brewery, or ice cream from Miss Nelles. Mark O'Meara, Deerhurst and Bigwin Golf courses are within a short drive as well as the famous Robinson's General Store which is a one stop shop for all your needs with a local twist.
