About This Cottage

The Yellow Cottage is part of a larger property called Journey’s End which comprises this cottage plus the log cabin apartments – The Loft and Creekview. The three properties can be rented together for a larger family group or separately.

This cute cottage sits across a dead end road from a short laneway to the waterfront shared by the Journey’s End properties, and walking down through the park-like setting alongside picturesque White’s Creek will lead you to a wide sandy beach facing west over Lake Simcoe. The waterfront is shallow and sandy underfoot with some areas of small rocks so water shoes are recommended. It is shallow for a long way out making this very suitable for smaller children. An array of canoes and kayaks are there for you to enjoy and seating areas by the creek and colourful Muskoka chairs at the waterfront add to the outdoor experience. Of course there is a firepit where you can spend evenings sharing stories, roasting marshmallows and appreciating the marvelous starlit nights.

To the rear of the cottage is a large lawned area that is great for ball games or enjoying an al fresco evening meal, The original CNN railway is at the back of the property and you will see and hear the occasional train, however since there are no public crossings in the vicinity, there’s no whistle!

The three-bedroom cottage is separated from the log cabin by a large parking area that can accommodate your boat or snowmobile trailer. A porch opens into a dining room, off which are the living area and spacious country kitchen, two of the bedrooms and a bathroom. All rooms are comfortably furnished and equipped. The spacious master bedroom has doors opening onto a small deck and a separate bathroom. The kitchen is a good size and nicely equipped and also opens onto the deck.

Beaverton is a small lakeside village that offers shopping, restaurants, a marina, and a newly built supermarket on Hwy 12. Orillia and Casino Rama are just 20 minutes north for those wanting additional entertainment and there are golf courses nearby.

When renting The Yellow Cottage there may also be guests in the log cabin apartments so the beach amenities will be shared, however the garden to the rear of the property is for Yellow Cottage guests only.

The Yellow Cottage will accommodate a maximum of 6 people. Larger groups (8 – 14 people) can rent Journey's End  which is the two apartments together with the 3 bedroom neighbouring cottage.

September 2019
We stayed at the yellow cottage in mid September 2019 with another couple. It was just a short walk to the beach down a wide gravel path. We saw an amazing sunset from the beach. The cottage was clean with all the comforts of home. The linens, towels, and kitchen utensils were good quality. The beds were comfortable. The living room has gas fire place which worked well for us since it was cold and rainy at times. The living room furniture was a clean although a bit outdated and a few with aging springs. The WiFi and satellite TV worked well. The owner has thought of everything and keeps everything in good shape and well organized. There are outdoor "toys" for adults and kids including a wet suit, flippers, horse shoes, boccie ball, bikes, balls, canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, tubes, firewood, and much more. There are several grills and picnic tables to be able to feed a large family. As the owner mentions, there is a train track directly behind the property line. I was not able to sleep though the trains passing but they didn't wake up the other couple. The trains are so close that you can sort of "feel" them passing by. I don't think you should let the train stop you from staying at the cottage unless you have a baby who is a light sleeper. On a positive note, we enjoyed watching the trains pass over a bridge from a nearby creek. I recommend the Yellow Cottage especially for families and especially in the summer.
June 2019
The cottage is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. We stayed for a week for fishing. There was sufficient space on the driveway to accommodate our suv and trailer boat.
