Welcome to beautiful Fern Hill Cottage on Trout Lake in French River. This custom-built 3 bedroom 2 bath home was designed as a permanent retirement residence for a family that has not yet retired! A true 4 season home. Soaring ceilings, stone wood burning fireplace, loft space, several outside decks, a sleeping bunkie, master bedroom with master bath, heating and air conditioning... this beautiful property has everything to make your stay absolutely perfect.
“Jennifer was a thoughtful host. The place was stylish and roomy, super clean, and updated. The water was spectacular, with a shallow entry and a drop off for nice swimming. We would rent this property again in a minute!”
MAIN CABIN (2 bedroom sleeps 1-8 and is for the listed price) OPTIONAL BUNKIE for parties of 1-12 people to spread out (1 room sleeps 4, $100 additional per night for the space -if you need access to the bunkie please choose 12 guests upon booking-unfortunately we can't add a fee per building instead of per guest... sorry for the confusion, please ask if you have questions)
“It is very hard to start at a specific reason as to why this place is so amazing, because there is literally too many to pick from. I guess first experience would be a fair start. When we got to the cottage, and stepped out of the car, we could tell that this is everything that we wanted for our weekend getaway and more. Beautiful water, kayak, canoe, and a paddle boat just waiting to be taking out for enjoyment. You walk inside and get the smell of the wood that was used to build the cabin and immediately fall in love with the place. Everything we needed for a weekend stay was there, and it was spotless. Beds are comfy, music is good, deck is an absolute pleasure to spend and lose track of time on. The dock is clean, safe and a wonderful place to fish. We caught a 5 pound bass about 2 feet long and a pike along with tons of perch, and sunfish. The neighbouring people are all friendly; don't forget to give them a wave as they pass by on their boats. Would definitely come back, and recommend this to anyone looking for time out of the city to relax and unwind. Thank you JO-CA Ke Ka :)”

“Harold and Lise were great hosts . They received us when we arrived at the crows nest and did a good walk around with us and showed us all the amenities available. The place was nice , clean and spacious. We were a group of 6 plus our 2 dogs. There was lots of space outside for our dogs to run free and enjoy themselves . The place has scenic views which is absolutely gorgeous. They even let us use their Canoe and Kayaks. My kids loved it . Great place for a swim with clean water. They even went out of their way to take us for a boat ride and a swim on their private boat . Really appreciate their hospitality . Not many hosts would do that . We were there to unwind and thats exactly what we were able to do. We will certainly recommend the crows nest as a go to place on the french river . I wish them all the best in their future endeavours. You guys are the best . We will be back. Thank you very much.”
