Five of my friends and I spent New Year's weekend at the Across the Pond Cottage. We loved it. The cottage is close to Toronto, about 2 hour drive from downtown. It was bright and warm (outside temperatures were in the - 25 degree range the entire weekend). The living space is perfect for hanging out and playing board games. Bedrooms were comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed. The cottage has a super size patio with a view of the lake. We'd definitely like to come back and enjoy the views in the summer. Richard and Kelly are wonderful hosts. They were easy to communicate with and very responsive. I'd definitely recommend their cottage to anyone who's looking for a cozy getaway.
