Our property promises to be all that you come to expect for your family retreat for years to come. 

 Recently purchased and lovingly restored to their original charm Starcross Cottages consists of three well kept cottages situated right on the water overlooking a pristine sandy beach. They can be rented out individually or as a whole for larger groups. Ranging from two guests to nineteen. The cottages are comfortably nestled in a private bay on Lake Skootamatta with over 320 feet of secluded waterfront, mainly natural sandy beach and a beautiful tree lined rocky point.

This inviting lake situated in the Land O Lakes region is quiet and undisturbed, the perfect place for relaxing families to soak in the sun and enjoy the great outdoors. This is your true northern getaway, surrounded by Crown land on a quiet lake with few boats. Truly the perfect setting for many a lazy day on the beach enjoying the sparkle of the sun off the water.

Feel the natural sandy beach between your toes as you wade out into the clear warm waters for some of Ontario's best swimming. The property is extremely child friendly, the water is shallow for at least 30 feet out and is sandy all the way. Perfect for splashing, wading and playing in the sand, sheltered in your own personal bay what more could you ask on a beautiful summer day? The grounds themselves are mainly grass and moss gently sloping down to the beach. This truly is a 5 out of 5 child friendly rating. There is a dock, a swimming raft, two canoes, two kayaks, a paddle boat, a row boat, windsurfer and fire pits w/ wood (to name a few) for your enjoyment.

We have successfully renovated all three cottages. A little love and modernization has brought these charming 1950's cottages back into the carefree days they were intended for. Though we focused on the kitchens and bathrooms, we have also opened up the ceilings, refinished the original knotty pine floors, added a fresh lick of paint and stain, and installed new large windows. Basically we went over every single surface w/ a fine-toothed comb! 

The cottage is thoughtfully furnished. Rustic hand made furniture, and original gems. All have been refinished and/or reupholstered. Beautifully updated, without taking away from the true cottage feel.

We have also purchased brand new mattresses, linens, and BBQ's w/ propane (All to be included with your stay) Our hope is to provide as much as possible for renters as we understand that one wants to arrive and relax w/out the hassle of moving all of ones belongings for a weeks vacation.

Arrive and unwind!

Going into our fourth season Starcross Cottages has become a popular spot in the well sought out Land O Lakes region. Book now to ensure your unforgettable summer vacation.

Good luck with your search,

Lindsay & Damian
