Amazing lakehouse getaway

My experience with Spencer Lakehouse was truly wonderful from start to finish. Hue was extremely responsive from the moment I booked the cottage for a small group getaway. Our trip was sadly shortened due to changes in lockdown restrictions, but Hue went above and beyond to accommodate us within the allowed guidelines and made sure to send updates with the evolving news. The cottage feels like a little Haliburton oasis. You can immediately tell that the hosts have paid attention to the details that really make a stay special - cute decor, candy bar, a supply of firewood, board games, and a special gift upon arrival (just to name a few!). I especially loved the views of the lake from the kitchen and the cozy living room in the basement. Hopefully we will be able to visit again to take advantage of fun summer activities, like canoeing and swimming in the lake. Thanks again Hue!

Perfect stay and generous host

Staying at Spencer Lakehouse was absolutely spectacular. We were only two, but the place felt homey and welcoming nonetheless. Hue was extremely responsive and helpful in creating a perfectly smooth/relaxing experience. From the personal touches (digital guidebook, local welcome package) and excellent amenities, we were so grateful to have such a great experience. It's clear that Hue makes it a priority to make the guest experience exceptional. It was our first time in Haliburton and we followed Hue's suggestions and it made for a truly unforgettable weekend. While it wasn't your typical sunny weekend, it was still perfect! Great place to unwind/unplug with a view.

Gorgeous Getaway

Spencer lakehouse was an amazing getaway during these crazy times. The house is really big, and spacious, with lots of natural light that made us feel at home right away. There was plenty of activities to keep us occupied such as checking out all the hiking trails close by, canoeing, and sitting around the fire. I highly recommend this place for a relaxing time away from the city. We will definitely be going back.

Great Stay!!

Was able to arrange a small golfing trip and Spencer Lakeshouse was the perfect location!! The owners made everything extremely simple, easy and the whole process was well organized. The cottage itself is beautiful and anything and everything you need is included. Simply pack your toothbrush and some clothes and you are good to go!!

Fantastic experience!

We stayed at the cottage for 4 nights along with our toddler and infant. The place had absolutely everything we could have needed, even for the baby (crib, high chair, cool night light/white noise machine). Lots of space for everyone to sleep and enjoy. The place was super clean. Everything was on working order. Very convenient location and a beautiful property on the lake. The owner communicated promptly and clearly with us about booking, check in and to answer any questions we had. I have to say that this was one of our top cottage rental experiences! Will be back for sure!

Perfect getaway

Spencer Lakehouse is a beautiful cottage that has everything you need. Kitchen very well equipped, lots of space, games to entertain yourself, and a gorgeous view on the lake! Everything was super clean. I especially loved how the cottage is decorated. The host has a lot of taste. The beds are also very comfortable. I wish I could have stayed longer. It's a quiet place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. I am definetely saving this address for my next group getaway or family getaway! 100% recommend !

What an amazings place!

Very impressed of how large the cottage is. The lake view looks very beautiful, perfect for photograph. All essential facilities are included. The cottage is also close to groceries, shoppers drug mart and hospital. Moreover, there is a big lawn (for kids to run around) and an outdoor fire pit is placed near the dock. I like the basement area a lot, it is spacious and has many board games! I absolutely will come back next year!

Perfect Long Weekend

Spencer's Lakehouse was a great getaway for the long weekend! Hue was a fantastic host and very quick to respond when I had any questions before arriving. Their guidebook was very easy to follow so there was no need to contact them during our stay. The place was very spacious and the basement was very cozy with lots of things to do (board games, tv, video games, free wifi). Big back yard and a lot of space to hang out on the dock as well. They had canoes and life jackets available to use on the lake. Overall amazing weekend and will definitely book this cottage again!

Highly recommended, and will return

We will certainly rent this place again! Beautiful cottage with long sandy beach and very gradual drop off to the water. It was perfect for our little kids to play at the water's edge with the sand. Great area for lawn sports, and perfect cottage layout with 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms split evenly across the upper and lower floors. Could easily be split, as we did with in-laws on one floor, and us and the kids on the other. 5 minute drive from the town of Haliburton so it was very convenient to pop into town for groceries or on a rainy day.

A Peaceful Getaway

Spencer lakehouse provided a much needed space to be away from the city-smog and be immersed in the fresh air. The property and amenities provided made our experience very comfortable - we felt at home! The space also gave the kids a space to play and hang out. Would love to spend more time here in the future.
