Guest Testimonials

Great vacation rental, excellent location for a cabin getaway 

I stayed at Castaway Ocean Lodge over the Remembrance Day long weekend in November 2011 (Nov 11-13). The location on the lake is terrific! The view from the decks that wrap around the cabin are amazing and tranquil. The added nicety of having a hot tub with access to the same views was also terrific! The cabin has an open concept inside which made hanging out with friends while cooking, eating, watching a movie, etc very easy. Definitely a great spot and we would go back for sure!

 Moose Harbour View is an excellent spot for a getaway. Really beautiful views. Even had deer walk through the yard in the evening.

WOW - this was the first word from our mouths as we drove down the driveway and saw this beautiful place!  We have had a wonderfully peaceful and serene week here at Castaway Ocean Lodge and the hot tub has been a god send and has enabled us to be outside enjoying the veiw even through the wind and the rain.  A fabulous haven that will live long in our memories!
