hang out, relax
The Getaway is exactly as it sounds. It's our home away from home that we rent out when we're not enjoying it ourselves. Located approx. 2 hours and fifteen minutes from Toronto, the cottage is the perfect place to get away, relax and escape the city. The Getaway has four bedrooms, one and a half baths, a wrap-around deck with screened-in porch dining and a beautiful western exposure to enjoy the sunsets.
You can go for a hike, take a swim or simply relax and work on your tan on the dock. Green's Lake is surrounded by 80% crown land, meaning great fishing and lots of nature trails to explore.
Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable as possible. At The Getaway, you can relax and unwind, while also enjoying some of the amenities you have at home. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, stove, dishes, pots and pans and cutlery so you can cook up a storm inside or BBQ on the deck.
Basic internet, satellite TV, and laundry are also available to make life a little easier. Use the nearby boat launch on Greens Lake or launch your boat on a number of nearby lakes if you want to explore the area.

COVID & Cancellation Policy
As of now, we are planning on running business as usual this summer. If we are legally allowed to rent we will, but should the government end up banning short-term rentals this summer then we will refund your deposit. If you have to cancel for any other reason it defaults to our regular cancellation policy. 100% refund 60 days before check-in. If you have to cancel within 60 days of check-in you forfeit your deposit. That being said we will do our best to try and fill your spot and if possible we will gladly refund your deposit but there are no guarantees.
