A Great Way to Experience Ontario's "West Coast"!

Having spent an amazing week at this cottage, it is definitely a little piece of paradise on Ontario's "West Coast". Not only do you have easy access to the beautiful waters of Lake Huron, the accommodations and amenities that are provided at White Squirrel Lookout are especially wonderful. Everything you could possibly imagine needing is right there at this cottage oasis. This is not your "little cabin in the woods" but is like staying in your own home away from home. There are the more than comfortable 3 bedrooms (including a master bedroom with a two-pice on-suite bathroom) to the extra large living space and kitchen area as well as an open and airy screened-in back porch that serves a yet another spacious place to enjoy the surrounding natural landscape. Speaking of natural landscape, you'll be treated to seeing the namesake white squirrels and a family of Wild Turkeys on an almost daily basis. Our family enjoyed making use of the various outdoor games during the day (badminton, horseshoes, etc.) and the assorted board games during the evening. If you want to be a couch potato, the wide-screen t.v. with satellite will allow you to keep in touch with the rest of the world's happenings. Without a doubt, this cottage provided the perfect get-away spot for our family to relax and create some fun-filled memories of a glorious week of sun, sand, surf and smiles. THANK YOU! Dave Swatridge & Family for making this dream vacation a possibility, and thanks to Jennifer Whaling for your outstanding and efficient handling of the booking and all the other assorted paperwork and the extra welcoming treats.

Week at the cottage on Lake Huron

We had a good time at White Squirrel Lookout. We even saw the white squirrel several times. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The views of the lake are beautiful. The twins liked the water even though the stones are hard to walk over when you get into the water. We had very nice weather and the BBQ was very good. We liked that the cottage was quiet and private.

Great week with the squirrels!

What a wonderful vacation! We had our first family vacation with our baby and this was the perfect place! We loved watching the sunsets every night at the lookout-absolutely Beautiful! This cottage had everything we needed and we really loved that there were many areas to spend our time (two deck areas, lookout, beach, screened in room etc). Thank-you so much- we will definately book through cottage stays again!!!

The cottage we've been waiting for!

We finally found the cottage we have been looking for! This cottage has everything you need. It is very clean and well kept, has many different areas to hang out, lots of room in the yard for kids to run around and the private beach was perfect for us. Jennifer was great to work with. She made everything very easy for us and was very easy to get a hold of. We will definitely return to this cottage next year!

Beautiful cottage well equipped with everything and anything you might need including books, board games and firewood. My group had an amazing weekend and really can’t say enough about this place. Will definitely be coming back!

Thanks so much Robyn! And I loved the communication with you. AND so glad you got a picture of the white squirrel! Robyn and her group were honest and open. Would love to have them back again for sure!

Roomy yet cozy

Had a great trip cottage was roomy yet cozy. Weather didn't cooperate much but bonfire was nice and sheltered so spent a lot of time outside anyway. Saw the white squirrels that was a first for us. Cottage was well equipped for cooking they had everything you could need. Spent time down at the beach watching waves and sunsets beautiful . Jennifer was a pleasure to deal with very helpful and patient. Meet the owners very nice people. Will definately go back. Thank you for renting your home to us. Cherilyn and Tim
