About This Cottage

For all you pet lovers, we are happy to present another SPF (Super Pet Friendly) cottage. We know how many of our guests want their pets to be as welcome as they are, and you’ll find this at Bancroft Lake House.

You won’t find old dark wood and paneling in this brightly painted and furnished cottage. Instead, the light pours in the windows across the lakeside and the colours of the furniture and furnishings create a warm and welcoming space. From the spacious living and dining areas through to the cosy dinette and beyond to the ‘reading room’ and screened in porch, there’s a spot for everyone to find their special place.

The 3 bedrooms are well spaced out with the master off the living area, with an ensuite bathroom; a double off the hallway just inside the entry door, and uniquely the third bedroom is reached via another bathroom. It’s a bit of an odd design but we don’t think it will affect anyone’s enjoyment of this lovely cottage.

Of course, the kitchen is fully equipped to cater for all the family's needs or just head outside and use the BBQ, and enjoy the results on the patio, under the umbrella.

The lawned gardens are level and lead to a delightful lakefront where you’ll find the water about a foot deep at the shoreline with sand underfoot. Walk out or swim off the dock and don’t worry about passing watercraft – this is a no-motor lake so there’s no concern about the kids swimming and being buzzed by seadoos, or hit by wake when out on the paddleboat.

Bancroft is just 10 minutes away for groceries, general shopping and restaurants. There’s trails nearby for walking your pets and Silent Lake Provincial Park is a 25 minute drive for a day out, a hike and a picnic on the beach.

Bring the kids, the dog, and yourselves for a relaxing vacation and make some lasting memories.

Reviews

June 2019
The cottage itself was very well appointed. The kitchen was lovely and we had everything we needed and more. The bathrooms were both very large and obviously newer. It was awesome to have the walk-in showers. The shower off of the master was rather slippery so I had my mom shower in the other bathroom as I was fearful of her falling. She is 89 yrs old. It was also very helpful that the cottage was so roomy as she was able to get around easily with her walker. The beds were also very comfortable. We did not need to use your linens as we had brought our own. The only downside was that there were a few large holes in the sliding door screen in the living room so I had to put masking tape on them because the black flies and mosquitoes were so bad. One more thing I would recommend is that there be a hand rail on at least one of the set of stairs off of the back deck. All in all, we had a very nice holiday and were able to easily go into town and take side trips from that location. I'm sorry that I had forgotten to run the dishwasher before we left.

We had a wonderful time at the Bancroft Lakehouse! Lots of space, bright and fully stacked kitchen. The water is warm for July, and clear right by the dock. Highly recommend it!

We’ve stayed at Bancroft Lakehouse every fall for 4 years now and are looking forward to our 5th stay! The owners are very accommodating and the cottage is always warm and welcoming. We attend an event in Bancroft each year and this is a perfect home base. We love how welcome our dogs are and the cottage all being on one level for our busytoddler. Overall, a great cottage that we highly recommend.

Stayed with family for our sons wedding at a cottage down the road. the lake house met all of our needs plus some. it was very comfortable for all. had one small issue the first night but we called the owner & they had it fixed within hours & we were not at all put out. Angela, Delia & Paul were very nice and accommodating. we would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.
