About This Cottage

Location, location, location - Just 1.5 hours from the GTA.. White's Falls Retreat is one of those special cottages that seems to have a little bit of everything - from western exposure waterfront on prestigious Gloucester Pool, to plenty of space to roam, to fabulous amenities to...but wait, we're getting ahead of ourselves here.

Easily accessible from Highway 400 with just a short drive on paved roads, this cottage is very easy to get to - no 4-wheel drive required here. As you turn into the long driveway, you might hear the kids give an excited shout when they notice the play center with slides, swings and all sorts of fun things on which to ramble. The immense - 2 acres of land - yard offers the equivalent of your own private park - perfect for an impromptu family game of soccer or football. Of course there is accommodation for the whole family team - this 4000 square foot cottage sleeps 11 people comfortably.

When you enter the cottage, you are greeted by the open concept living/dining/kitchen area, with a walkout to a full deck complete with BBQ and furniture and a great view of the waterfront. The kitchen allows the family chef to prepare meals for the hungry hordes while at the same time keeping your eye on them. Around the corner you might notice the continuous bounce-bounce from the ping pong table that sits next to the living room, or maybe the clack of checkers as family members vie for the esteemed title of crokinole champion of the week. The living room offers a wonderful mix of shade and sun, courtesy of the trees and waterfront. Of course, there is satellite TV here for catching the games or enjoying family movie nights. There are two dining tables that will sit your group in comfort for indoor meals, but we're guessing you'll opt for outdoor dining when the weather is fair. You will find 3 bedrooms on this level as well as the main bath. The master has an en suite, of course.

Downstairs you will find two more bedrooms as well as a huge play space - this offers gamesters in the crowd the option of Foosball, Air Hockey and a walkout to the waterfront area. Did we mention the hot tub? Well, we should - it's a great place to cap the day if you've been out kayaking all day and your muscles need some pampering...and it's an entirely new experience to sit out under a starry sky in the winter in your bathing suit.

You'll want to use the kayaks to explore Gloucester Pool...from here you can go anywhere - and we DO mean ANYWHERE. Since it is connected to the Trent Severn waterway, you can theoretically travel to any waterway in the world, but don't venture too far if you want to be home for supper. Just across the bay there is a cascading waterfall where the waters from Six Mile Lake feed Gloucester Pool. The lake has many islands and bays and makes for a rich exploration experience. The Marine Railway at Big Chute and the locks at Port Severn allow you unfettered access to the waters of the Severn River or Georgian Bay respectively, should you wish to bring or rent a larger craft.

Out and about, you have a variety of options. Road cyclists will enjoy the quiet, treed offerings of Big Chute Road. Golfers will find Bonaire reasonably priced and a decent but fair challenge. Winter visitors will love the proximity to Mount St. Louis/Moonstone. All year round there is historic Midland/Penetanguishene.

We think we've found a jewel in White's Falls Retreat. And at just about 90 minutes from the GTA, it's waiting for you anytime!

There is a gentle slope from the cottage to the waterfront. The entry is sand/soft-bottomed and somewhat weedy at the shore. Swimming shoes are essential in this area as there may be zebra mussels. Depth at the end of the dock is about 5 feet, where swimming is much better. The water is clean here and is usually warm. Just across the bay is a small waterfall, where swimming and fishing are also good.


Gloucester Pool, while part of the Trent-Severn Waterway System, is a large lake in its own right, with depths reaching in excess of 100 feet in some places. In addition to the possibilities offered by traversing locks, channels allow access to 3 other lakes for boaters without having to pass through locks.

This luxury home on the water is beautifully maintained. The owners make it so easy for renters having every possible item available: towels, bathroom amenities, kitchen supplies, linens. There is a lot of space, games, books and things to do. We visited in the winter and enjoyed the hot tub. We made good use of the indoor activities (table tennis, board games, air hockey). We went tobogganing and played in the snow. It’s about 25 min drive to St Louis Moonstone. The beds were very comfortable with high end linens, blankets and pillows. The kitchen had everything you could possible need and more (spices, condiments, appliances...). It was easy to use the TV, DVD player, sound system. We couldn’t connect to the wifi but I didn’t mind for the break from the busy world of technology. I would highly recommend this place for a big family. It caters to all ages. We will be back!

The house is large, well appointed and very comfortable. The setting is beautiful with lots to do on the lake - fishing, canoeing and kayaking. The House has a veritable library of movies for all ages, cupboards packed with games, ping-pong and a hot-tub. Would thoroughly recommend to families and will hopefully be booking again in the future.

This was a great pick for a fall weekend getaway for 5 couples. The place was easy to find and living area very spacious and open for all to sit together and catch up. Our host Michelle was quick to respond with our questions. We spent a lot of time outdoors enjoying the amazing scenic views of the quiet lake. Campfires at night were lovely. The well stocked kindling and wood provided made things easy to get started. Thanks for a wonderful time.

We had a great one week vacation with friends and family. The cottage is conveniently located and a very short drive to the city. It was a perfect place for our large group to stay...we had lots of room for entertaining and privacy in the many separate rooms. The cottage is well stocked with anything you need and nice quality furnishings and beddings. All the comforts of home! The lake system was beautiful to explore with our boat and paddle by canoe/kayak. The owners were great hosts and were very responsive to any request we had. We will be returning next year!

We are a group of nurses from a NICU in Windsor, ON who go on an annual Girls
Weekend in the fall each year. We have been to some beautiful cottages through the
years but none have ever topped this one! It is so well stocked with every amenity we
could possibly need. We spent the entire weekend out on the dock/lake and had
probably the best weekend to date. We will come back year after year if you will have
us! 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing your cottage with us!
