Sarah on 12-Mar-24
Spent the past weekend at Bailey’s Cottages and had a great time. The owners are very friendly, easy to communicate with, and very accommodating. I felt the cabin was fairly priced for the space and the location is beautiful! Definitely recommend if you love camping but don’t want to stay in a tent!

Great value cottage for fishing, kayaking and campfire! The common washroom and showers are very well maintained and do not smell at all. The owner, Sharon, is very kind and attentive. The kayaks are very fun. There's 2 kayaks for 5 cottages so not the most. We came here during the week and only 2 of the cottages were occupied, so we got to try out the kayaks. It was too windy for me but my dad managed to kayak and have lots of fun. In a nearby drive there's a O'Hara Mill and Conservation Area which was quite interesting, a glimpse of life back in the day. Around a 40 minutes drive away, we also visited the Tyendinaga Caves, which were interesting to join a tour and explore. You might have to call ahead to reserve a tour spot though, but we just walked in as it was a weekday. A small problem was that the firewood sold there was a bit wet so our campfire kept smoking, but it was not too hard to start and maintain, and we had fun making the campfire.

We spent Canada Day here and, other than the lack of AC during a nearly overwhelming heat wave, it was great! We caught a few Musky, and had a great time on the lake. Good people run the place and the rates are very reasonable for what you're getting.

Lovely, clean accommodations and wonderful people to look after us!

Grace Kelly on 08-Mar-19
Had a fabulous time this past July. Lovely grounds and clean amenities. Sharon and husband were gracious hosts.

Bob Grant on 02-Aug-15
Hello Sharon and Doug Sure was great seeing you after so many years. In spite of the circumstances, much enjoyed the time with you, Roscoes, and Jane. Brought back many memories especially of our mutual friend, the reason we were able to meet once more. Hope very much it is not the last -- you have the number and the card. Let me be the host!

We just got home from Bailey's cottages! What an awesome week we had! The hospitality was great, the cottages were clean and fishing was great! Thank you to Sharon and Doug! Hopefully your daughter inlaw isn't mad at us for the mix up! Lol

In August I and my brother are once again making the trip to Bailey's Cottages. This will make my eight year in a row making this trip. It is six hundred miles from my home, but the experience is worth the drive. We have a splendid time when we are there. You may not be able to rent a cottage the last week in September, becasue my brother-inlaw is taking eight other men from his chuch there to experience the adventure.

Michael Gormley on 05-Sep-14
Had and amazing stay at Bailey's Cottages on the August long weekend of 2014. My wife, son and I cannot say enough good things about the hospitality and the people we met during our stay. The fishing is outstanding as are those running Bailey's Cottages. Much thanks to Doug, Sharon, Brad and Kerry. My son Liam says the kids are really cool too. We appreciated all they did to make our stay feel like home and we are looking forward to many more visits over the years to come.

Kirby on 12-Aug-13
Bailey's Cottages was a fantastic place to get away. We were up there in May and it was just perfect. we had the cottage right by the water, a fire pit was there as well ... it was perfect. and the inside of the cottage itself was roomy and very comfortable. Thanks again for a wonderful time. we are booking again for Labour day weekend!

John Leckwart on 21-Apr-13
I fished and stayed at Bailey's Cottages in 2001 thru 2006 and am making the trip again this year. I have caught several record class fish especially Muskies! I can't wait to go again. Doug and Sharon are great hosts and their cottages are top notch. See you on the water!

I and my brother-inlaw make the trip to Canada from Cincinnati Ohio, and stay at Bailey's cottages every year. It is six hundred miles towing a bass boat which burns through the gas but the time we spend there is worth every penny. I am fairly young and I hope that this great place becomes a fourth generation owned business so I can take my grand children.
