Sparrow Lake, so close to Toronto (1.5 hour drive) and Orillia and Bracebridge (although we never got to either because we were so busy at the cottage :-)
So much to do for all ages - from swimming in the pool (mostly, as the lake itself is quite weedy if you're looking for deeper water, however, the kids' beach area is fine, sandy, and shallow), to kayaking, Sea-doing (we brought our own, and it's highly recommended to bring some sort of water vehicle to enjoy fully the surroundings); not crazy busy at the resort (owner occupied cottages for the most part) and every one was friendly. Bingo on Saturday nights. Cottage was spacious for six people - a king-size bed in and ensuite bathroom in one wing, and two smaller bedrooms in another. Owners will be enlarging the living room area between 2017 and 2018 which solves the 'where to sit at night' issue. All in all, a wonderful week, and we plan on returning in 2018!
The location was great. The facilities were good and the children enjoyed themselves. I would recommend that the owners hire cleaners instead of relying on the renters. the beds were very comfortable, the decks are amazing. It would be nice if there were a couple of channels on the television though we do understand it's a cottage. Overall it was a very nice vacation and we hope to return.
