Bells’ Dream Lakehouse is an oasis of tranquility hidden in the Madawaska Valley/Barry’s Bay region of Ontario. The only noise you’ll hear while staying here, is the chirping of birds or the crackling of logs in the fire pit. The home itself is stunning, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere on all 3 levels. Bells’ Dream is cozy for a couple looking to relax, to a larger group of friends and family who need space! We enjoyed using the provided kayaks, tanning on the dock and all the fishing you can handle on Bark Lark! Your stresses are lifted every morning once you enjoy your coffee on the beautiful deck overlooking the lake, and we highly recommend starting a fire in the pit during the evening to chat or just stare at the majesty of this home and Bark lake. Eric and Tania are the most gracious guests who have put much thought and effort building Bells’ Dream, they’ve touched all the bases, and hit a home run! We are definitely returning next year.
Stunning!

Came for a weekend with friends and wow what a beautiful place! We took full advantage of the dock, the kitchen, and the firepit it’s all well thought out and comfortable for our group of 6. Playing pool and then jumping in the lake was certainly a highlight for us. We will definitely book for a week next year. Thank you Tania and Eric for sharing your beautiful place with us!
Stunning cottage in a beautiful location.

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere special, with extended family, to celebrate a special Wedding Anniversary. The photos and descriptions online of Bells’ Dream Lakehouse, drew us in, and when we went, the reality did not disappoint. The couple seem to be very caring hosts, as they have added some small touches to make you feel so welcome. After our car journey, we really felt like a coffee and a tea, and in the kitchen, there was a great selection for both, just waiting for us. It is touches like this that set them apart from other places we have visited. Every area of the house is stunning, yet somehow manages to feel so home-like and welcoming. Our party loved all the accommodation on offer, as it was all very clean, very spacious and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our time together. If you wanted to have some chill time by yourself, there was space to do that. There is a cute bed-cum-reading nook area on the upper landing, and we loved that! The kitchen is very well-equipped, so if you enjoy cooking and want the equipment you need to hand, you are all set. There is a good-sized dining table inside, as well as outside on the wrap-around deck. You will get a wonderful view of the Lake from both places. The view from the living room of the Lake is simply beautiful and you are immediately drawn to it. There is a great dock with Muskoka chairs, just beckoning you to come out and sit and take in the view. In our time there, we enjoyed canoeing and swimming in the Lake, which was great fun. They also have paddleboards, as well as outdoor games to get some competition going. At night, our favourite place was around the firepit, with a glass of wine in one hand, marshmallows for toasting in the other, and we just relaxed after a beautiful day with family. Will we go again? Absolutely.
Beautiful, relaxing lake house & location!

I recently had a very relaxing vacation at Bell’s Dream Lake House. Beautiful accommodations & fabulous views. All the amenities you could possibly need to enjoy your stay are provided (& then some!) Canoeing on Bark Lake was highlight & we enjoyed some relaxing, peaceful nature walks. Enjoyed the sunset views relaxing on the dock. Definitely in our future vacation plans – worth every penny!! Thank you Tania & Eric.
Gorgeous Cottage, Fabulous Location!

If I could give this cottage 100 stars ⭐️ I would!! This is truly the most beautiful, well equipped cottage I have ever stayed in. The decor is magazine worthy – and the entire space is perfectly designed for any configuration of cottagers, whether for a couples trip, single family, multiple families, etc. with lots of space to spread out & enjoy both togetherness and privacy! The kitchen is so well-equipped, far above & beyond anything I have ever experienced in a vacation rental. Cooking meals in that beautiful space was an absolute pleasure – gorgeous views, huge beautiful dining tables (inside & outside), and a large comfortable livingroom open to the kitchen as well. Beds were super comfy & lots of sleeping options available. Every bedroom is stunning! Outdoor space is beyond our expectations. Huge upper deck off kitchen/main living space that offered incredible views & tons of extra space to spread out & enjoy some solitude even if there with a larger group! Fire pit was awesome with tons of comfy Adirondack chairs. Enormous extended dock that offers ample space for many people to congregate waterside .. and you’ll want to!! The lake is quiet, very clean & as a bonus is fairly shallow (you can touch bottom for quite a ways out which is great with kids!) We experienced the most beautiful sunsets from both the upper deck & down on the dock! In terms of amenities – this cottage offers an abundance; Paddle boards, kayaks, life jackets, kids playhouse, sauna, bbq, bocce, fire pit, pool table, ping pong, and the most beautiful corn hole boards I’ve ever seen! Not to mention the natural beauty of Bark Lake itself for swimming & hiking. The little town nearby is great for a wander & shopping if needed. Needless to say I HIGHLY recommend this cottage & location. What could be better? It’s the most beautiful vacation home I’ve ever stayed in, on the most beautiful, secluded, clean lake I’ve ever visited! I can’t wait to return and hope to have the opportunity to share this gem with my extended family & friends many times over in the years to come! Thank you Tania & Eric (owners) for sharing your beautiful lake home with us! We’ll be back!

I had an amazing stay on Bark lake at Bell’s Dream. The property is gorgeous, inside and out. I spent a lot of time enjoying the outdoor space as the weather was favorable. The dock is huge which was great for sitting down to read or enjoying the sun with friends. We took a dip in the lake and it felt great. It was so clean and refreshing. The view of the park land across the lake is so peaceful and beautiful to look at! we had a fire one night and enjoyed the large space for this. And you will be amazed at the nightly sunset before your eyes!!! Retreating indoors was so comforting with a large kitchen and living/dining open concept area overlooking the view of the lake. The kitchen was so well equipped and we enjoyed cooking in and dining in front of that spectacular view! And just outside the sliding door you had access to a large deck to overlook the view also! You will get a very good nights rest as the beds are so comfortable. It is a very modern and comforting space with bright uplifting feels. I felt so well rested at the cottage and cannot wait to return there soon. Thank you for renting out a lovely cottage for others to enjoy:)
What a dream!

We booked this property to bring up our family with the hopes it would be as great as the photos show. It was even better! The view from the deck is so calming and then the sunsets out on the dock are spectacular. Every single detail is thought out for a next level stay from super comfy beds to fully stocked kitchen and outdoor play area. Because of all the different living spaces we never felt on top of each other and I loved having the master bedroom on the main floor away from the others. We did not want to leave and truly look forward to booking again next summer.
