Property Details

NOW BOOKING FOR THE SUMMER OF 2024.! Welcome to Gold Star Cottage, a family refuge for over 70 years.

Since the 1940s multiple generations have enjoyed many decades with friends and family on this scenic spot only 90 minutes from Toronto. Through additions and renovations over the years, to accommodate an even further expanding family, Gold Star Cottage has been the iconic gathering place for 5 generations and it’s not done yet. We are pleased to share our idyllic home away from home with you, with the hope that it is a place that brings your family together and provides a peaceful backdrop for family memories.

Enjoy 4 bedrooms and an open kitchen plan, including dishwasher, with large windows overlooking a flat property right to the shoreline; no steps to the water. The natural shoreline and shallow water is perfect for little ones to explore and splash around. Kayaks and SUP allow you to be adventurous on the water and take in the peaceful surrounds. A large dining table is perfect for everyone to come together for meals and games. 18-hole Golf, horseback riding and go-karts are all nearby. IGNITE TV when you want to chill and watch a game or stream and colourful sunsets to end the day. The cottage is located close to Casino Rama, grocery and LCBO stores.

Cancellation Policy

Any cancellation must be clearly communicated to and confirmed by Debbie at Windrovers as soon as possible. We can then try our best to re-rent the cottage for that period.
If you cancel 45 days or more before the rental period, we will refund you in full, less the 15% booking charge. If you cancel less than 45 days before, and we cannot re-rent the cottage for the reserved period, we will have to keep your reservation deposit. If part of the period is re-rented, you will get that part of your deposit returned minus the booking charge. Two weeks in advance, the whole of the deposits are forfeited.

Deposit Policy

The rent is the amount advertised. In a few cases, HST must be added. This is noted under taxes and fees in the property listings.
There will be a 4% administration charge added to the rent.
The security deposit is 50% of the rent not exceeding $1000, paid by certified cheque or money order. This is due 2 weeks before the start of your holiday. This deposit will not be cashed and will be returned to you as soon as all bills are settled – normally within a month after your rental period ends.
The security deposit will be used to pay any additional bills incurred during your cottage stay, eg., long distance phone; or to offset repair of extraordinary damage, eg., a broken window. If the cottage is not left as found, as much as a 10% of the rent cleaning charge may be taken form the Security Deposit. Any bills will be fully revealed and discussed with you in the week following the rental.
In addition, any bills not covered by the security deposit will be billed to you.
The reservation deposit is 30% of the rent, which includes a 15% nonrefundable booking charge, and has to be received within a week of making your reservation to ensure the cottage is held for you.
Payment for the rent may be made by cheque or money order payable to Windrovers Ltd.; or by Mastercard or Visa.
All payments shall be made in Canadian funds.
Service charges levied by the bank due to insufficient funds or payments not cleared will be billed to you.

Rate varies due to seasonality and holidays.
