About Hillary Thatcher
We bought this beautiful cottage from my father who owned it for 40 years. We love to travel and seek adventure - always enjoying new cities, towns, countries while living like locals.
Hillary Thatcher purchased this House in 2007
Why Hillary Thatcher chose Georgina
This Four Season cottage has been in our family for 50 years. It is one of the oldest cottages on the east side of cooks bay - built in the 1880s. While there have been many updates to the cottage, it continues to boast old style charm, large stained glass, and a beautiful large fire place to relax through a cool evening. The private waterfront, permanent dock and boathouse add comfort and peace only 1 hour away from downtown Toronto!
What makes this House unique
The location of this cottage is ideal. It is only 1 hour from downtown Toronto, making it a quite weekend getaway and ease and accessibility for a busy professional life. Because the cottage is located on the east side of Cooks Bay, you will see the most beautiful sunsets ever!

Perfect place to relax.
This property had everything you needed. A georgeos waterfront , with chairs to relax in. A cottage with clean linens, towels and comfortable beds. It also has netfix so watching movies with friends was awesome. The Beaches Restaurant had live entertainment, great pub style food and friendly staff.
We had a lovely family vacation. The cottage was very clean and modern.
We loved our stay. The location was ideal. And the cottage was very clean and modern. We did wish the kitchen had a small microwave and a better bbq. But that did not interfere with our wonderful stay. Hilary was very easy to get in contact with. The beds were very comfortable, and so was the pull out couch.

Fabulous sunsets! Beautiful cottage! Great location!
We had a good week at this cottage! Highlights included the magnificent sunsets from the dock; exploring the neighbourhood ( lots of beautiful properties), convenience to stores, restaurants; cottage was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. We were a bit disappointed with the exterior in terms of it being clean and well tended. There were cobwebs everywhere and a missing section of the dock which made it challenging as the water would splash up on the sitting space on the two days it was a bit windy. There were also weeds, a dead fish and garbage washed up on the shore. Overall though I would recommend as it is a nice location and the inside makes up for the outside issues. The other note is that there is no AC and therefore we found it too hot/stuffy for us and our two dogs even with the fans that are available in each room. I clearly missed this detail when I booked this cottage. Hillary was very responsive and pleasant to deal with.
Loved our waterfront cottage
We loved our weeklong stay at the house. Waterfront was great with private dock we used frequently and rented a waverunner nearby., Lake Simcoe was gorgeous and also went into Toronto. House is updated, cozy and charming with big yard with some nice touches. We'd definitely stay again. A couple things to note - no air conditioning that we saw but fans served us well. A microwave for leftover lunches and iron would have helped be better equipped. Other than that, highly recommend.
