"I have nothing but praise for Maryrose, Ross and staff at Muskoka District Rentals. We have used their services to rent our Muskoka cottage for the last 3 years. All of our guests have indicated that they have had a very satisfactory rental experience with Muskoka District Rentals, and that they were very attentive to all of their needs. Their application procedure is very thorough, and benefits both the guests and cottage owners. I highly recommend this very reputable and professional company for anyone wanting a hassle free and enjoyable rental agency.” ~Barb Kiingswell, July 2018

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ A wonderful week at the lake! "Maryrose & Ross are incredible hosts who made our trip memorable” Mick Sandhu, July 2018

★ ★ ★ ★ ★Spectacular Thanksgiving Weekend Getting all of our family (daughters, sons-in-law and grandkids) together is always a special occasion, but enjoying it at Muskoka Wonderland was even more special. The cottage is spectacular, beautifully appointed, extremely well equipped (especially for our Thanksgiving dinner) and the view from the boathouse balcony was appreciated by all. A very quick swim in the lake at this time of year was made possible by having the hot tub close to the lake and available both before and after the cold water dip. The MDR staff were responsive and professional. Overall a great experience." Bill from Oakville. Oct 2018

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Excellent, Excellent!! "Cherry island is paradise! We were a big group and all the bedroom and en-suites, and seating areas, and patio furniture, and beach, and bar stools (ETC, ETC, ETC) made that place so great and livable. So grateful for the MDR Team making it all happen. The space is spectacular and the customer service is just as good! All good things!" Ruth from Toronto June 2018
