Wraight Escape

Spend your vacation the way you want - whether it’s playing outside in the lake with the many water toys - water mat, kayaks, canoe, peddle boat; playing volleyball or badminton; take advantage of the shade in a hammock, or chilling inside the air conditioned cottage watching your favourite movies on a large screen TV, or reading a book. Have fun playing pool, snooker, darts, foosball, board games or the Wii on those rainy days. Or cozy up by the propane fireplace. In the evenings playing cards in the Muskoka room is a nice way to unwind, it’s all about how you want to relax!

Our cottage is very spacious with cathedral ceilings and large windows to take in the view of the lake with Eastern exposure the sunrises are amazing! Being located on one of the many bays, there is no boat traffic to bother your swim and with shallow water entry it is great for the little ones to get wet.

Enjoy some s’mores steps away from the waters edge, reflecting on the day in Muskoka chairs set around a decorative fire ring.

When it comes to meals, we have an open concept kitchen with two large tables for all to gather around either inside, or around handmade log table set outside on the deck. You will find the large deck is entirely gated for the safety of your little ones and furry friends. Whether you are barbecuing or preparing a fantastic dinner in the kitchen, we have new appliances and everything you need to prepare an incredible meal, just like at home.

Lake Manitouwabing is the largest inland lake in Parry Sound, you have access to 94km of shore for boating and fishing. You can also enjoy the award winning Ridge at Manitou Golf Course nearby, take a boat cruise of the 30,000 Islands, hike the nearby trails, try an ATV adventure!

In the Winter take advantage of the snowy wonderland with miles of groomed snowmobile trails, ice fishing, cross country skiing or simply enjoy building igloos and snowball fights!

Dogs are welcome at Wraight Escape!

Everything to make your stay comfortable is there for you to use!  Books to read, movies to watch, linens, towels, BBQ, propane, dishes, coffee maker, microwave, Bell TV, internet, and much much more!  Just take your food and enjoy your stay!

We had a great time at the Wraight Escape!  We were very comfortable - bedrooms enough for each of our family to have their own space.  The kitchen was wonderful - absolutely everything we needed.  We loved all the available activities - the water mat, kayaks, pedal boat all got lots of use as well as some of the games in the house.  Thank you for the s'mores kit and bottle of wine - a thoughtful touch : )

It was a great week - we loved the cottage

Dear Jen & Mike,

Our family, including 2 grandchildren have had an awesome week!  The weather was perfect!  Your beautiful cottage had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable.  As a family we were able to make new memories that will last a lifetime.  Everyone truly loved all the watercraft.  We had a campfire every night and our new favourite is s'mores made with Caramilk chocolate bars!  Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us! 

Brian and Shelley Renaud & family 

P.S.   Thanks also for the s'mores kit and bottle of wine!

We have had an amazing week - Wraight Escape is a Great Escape.  We loved the cottage and its amenities; we enjoyed the kayaks and the water mat.  We played volleyball and badminton and thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful waterfront.  We went boating every day and fished as well.  We had fun playing pool and darts and our 3 & 11 year old granddaughters loved the movie selections. 

Perhaps best of all we have been able to create livelong memories.

Once again we had a great week at Wraight Escape.  The kids loved the kayaks.  Last year we had a gender reveal party and this year we had our new family member Elijah with us, so exciting.  This year Gramma turned 60 so we had a fun day boating on the lake.  The fire pit area looks great.  We really enjoyed having a couple of fires and some smores.  Great week full of sweet memories.  Thanks for the smores and bottle of wine.  We enjoyed it very much.

We had a blast!  The cottage is beautiful and we really enjoyed the lake!  

Caught quite a few fish throughout the week.  Best at night and before 7 am.  Perch, Bass, Pike, Catfish, etc.

Such a fun week at Wraight Escape with our family and friends!  Weather was great, fishing was great and we felt right at home!  We will definitely be back!

We have had some wonderful times as a family this week, some great memories to hold on to.  The cottage was comfortable and very cozy.  The dogs sure loved the dog bed, might have to go to Costco for one.  It was a great place to celebrate some birthdays!  We are a family who loves campfires and it was always a nice way to finish off the day.

Thanks so much!

When it stopped raining, it became sunny.  When the sun went out, it rained.  When it rained, it poured!  When it poured, we played Trivial Pursuit.  When Lori won, we stopped.  It kept raining but we still had fun.

We stayed at the cottage for a second time, so we thought we would write our experiences in a rhyme.

Lots of snowmobiling and lots of great games, even a fashion runway when we made up nicknames.

We could not have asked for better weather, and we successfully made the best lasagna ever! (extra cheddar)

Although one fell and broke her toes, she kept hopping around.  Look, there she goes!

Such a great cottage, we wish we could stay.  But for now it's time to sashay away.

Everyone enjoyed the stay at the cottage.  The boys loved the pool table in the basement, the kids loved the bunk beds,  and the dogs loved the surroundings of the cottage.  A little piece of "paradise".  We would love to come back in the summer. 

Thank you for providing the perfect space for us to make memories!

Thank you so much, we enjoyed our time here.  The two grandchildren, grandma and mother of the children enjoyed kayaking.  We got to watch a female mallard for the longest time in her natural environment.  Caught one pike which they ate.  Second time out caught another which the children convinced their dad into releasing.  Great way to teach kids about food connectivity.  Loved playing pool.  Bonfires were awesome.  Beds comfortable.

Thank you.

Awesome week at Wraight Escape.  Thanks for sharing your beautiful, well kept cottage with us!  Water mat, kayaks, canoe, a row boat and a paddle boat!  What could be more fun!  The weather was great for lots of outdoor fun, and night time was filled with games, movies and lots of "junk" food.  Everyone from Grandpa and Grandma to a two year old had so much fun.

This was a great vacation in a beautiful winter wonderland.  Over 3 fee of snow allowed us to build an igloo on the lake where the kids had a blast.  This was a wonderful experience in a cozy and welcoming cottage.

We hope to be back soon to experience other seasons and wonders this area has to offer.

Thank you

"Skanes Winter Getaway"

This was our first winter getaway at a cottage.  Our family truly enjoyed our stay.  We couldn't have asked for a more spacious and well equipped place.  A lot of great memories were made, as our children's spouses got to experience our family's favourite winter past time, snowmobiling.  We also got to relive some old memories while watching our granddaughter learn to ride her own snowmobile (as she would say, "it was just her size").  Our days were filled with movies, games, pool, darts, walks and tobogganing.  I especially enjoyed the creativity that we all played a hand in prepping meals and later sitting down and reconnecting as a family.  Overall the weather cooperated minus one little hiccup which caused a 12 hour blackout due to freezing rain.  We hope to make this an annual tradition.  

Thank you for helping us build new memories!

Neil and Lise Skanes & family

This has been a truly wonderful vacation.  The sun shone every day.  Your house is lovely.  Thanks for enabling us to stay in such a beautiful, tranquil setting.  We have mastered the kayak, canoe & pedal boat, something we had little, if any, experience with.  We have enjoyed BBQ's and sitting around the campfire singing "ging gang goolay".  It's been a relaxing and calming break for all.

Thanks once again

August 27 - September 2nd

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cottage with us.  So many amazing memories were made out on the beautiful lake.  The kids loved their fishing adventures, solo kayaking "expeditions" & chill time in the paddle boat.

Dear Jen & Mike, thank you so much for letting is rent and enjoy your beautiful cottage.  We were here with two other families, and we all (kids and adults) loved our stay at your well equipped, beautifully decorated, and well maintained cottage.  This was our first time renting a cottage and the expectations have already been set very high.  The weather remained gloomy for most of our stay but we were able to make most of the sunny breaks.

Kids had great time inside and outside the house.  Will surely come back again next year.

Thank you for having this beautiful cottage for us to rent.  We have rented many in the past & you have thought of every little detail!  We just got married & came for a family trip with Parents, Grandparents & Grand kids.  My children had a great time, loved the toys, movies, outdoor toys.  My oldest Hudson (3 1/2) caught a bass that was 18 1/2 inches, he was thrilled!  Nolan our one year old just started to walk and had a great time exploring the property!  Daddy & Uncle Jay seen a big snapping turtle on the side road and everyone loved fishing on the lake!  The men loved the pool table downstairs, it's such a nice place to hang out & relax!  I couldn't say enough nice things about this place, thanks for the great memories, keep it up, Jen & Mike!

My son is saying "This place is the best place I visited in my whole life."  He wants us to stay here for ever.  Definitely, we had enjoyed the place as it has the most activities we know that it can be in a cottage.  We had never visited a place full of activities like this.  Me and my friends are planning to come back for sure.

Our family has rented many cottages in the Muskoka and Haliburton area over the past 15 years and your lovely cottage is one of the best equipped of all of them, making for a very enjoyable vacation.  It's great that we could bring our "grand dog" as well.  Our 3yr old granddaughter loved experiencing her first campfire and roasting smores and the shallow water was perfect for her to float around with her water wings.  We hope to have the opportunity to return next year!  Thanks!

August 27 - September 3, 2016

Having recently moved back to Ontario after 20+ years out west I was eager to share some of my favourite childhood memories with our children.  We just spent an incredible week with my brothers and their children at your beautiful cottage on the lake that we ourselves grew up on.  Our fondest childhood memories were made on Lake Manitouwabing in McKellar at our Grandparents' cottage - and now we were able to extend those fond memories to our children.

Thank you for everything - we loved your cottage!

What a great week!  Foster parents of four wonderful teenage girls who enjoyed the week playing in the water.  The water pad was a hit!

Thank you for a great family & friend vacation!  This was our first time renting a cottage and we were thrilled.  The cottage was spacious and well-equipped with lots to do for our few rainy days.  The water mat and kayaks were a huge hit!  Loved having my early morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake.  We also saw a deer on a drive in from Parry Sound.   : )

Although the weather didn't fully co-operate, we had a wonderful week and the kids can't stop talking about all the fish they caught.   : )


The Wolfe Family


Aug 6th - Aug 13th, 2016

This was the owner's family week and we made many memories and a family tradition!  We are so glad everyone is enjoying our cottage, we always look forward to reading the comments you leave for us.

This week we did have family visit with us, did a few chores and had lots of fun!  Our kids caught their first fish - 15 1/2" Bass and 13 1/2" and 14 1/2" Pickerel plus many too small.  We had a deer pop out in front of our truck on a trip to town.  We learned first-hand how easily watercraft can disappear from shore!

We had a propane fireplace installed for cozying up on those chilly days, stained the decks and cleaned the water weeds.

Looking forward to the next vacation  : )


July 30 - August 6, 2016

Dear Jen & Mike

We have had  a wonderful stay at your beautiful cottage.  Our group consisted of 9 people and included 2 sets of parents and 3 children 3 and under.  We found your facilities were perfect for everyone.  We spent hours in the lake using the floating mat and canoe.  We were very fortunate and had amazing weather all week, so we spent all of our days outside and didn't have the opportunity to take advantage of all of your "indoor" activities.  We were very impressed with everything we saw though.  We were also impressed with how well equipped your kitchen was.  All in all, we had a fabulous family vacation and would highly recommend Wraight Escape!!!

Thanks for everything

July 23-30, 2016

This was the Wright Escape for us!  We had a wonderful time and the week sadly flew by.  The water mat was a huge success with our 3 boys.  Every day was spent at the dock cooling off with a quick dip.  Our kids learned to kayak this trip and we all followed the shoreline for ice cream at the Marina.  A perfect trip on a hot summer day.

The cottage is well stocked for entertainment:  darts, pool, DVD's and movies.  This was again, a wonderful week.

Thank you.  We created many memories.  We will miss the night sky and will think of it on our return home.

Thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely cottage.  Our children and grandchildren had a great time.  We (the parents and grandparents) had a relaxing time enjoying the beautiful scenery: the lake, the trees, the animals, the sunsets, moon and stars.  A perfect place to meditate on God's wonderful creation.  Thanks too for the wonderful neighbours who came to our rescue when the water mat blew away on the lake!!  One minute the lake is calm but suddenly the winds come.  We enjoyed every minute of our stay; always too short.

Thanks again,

June 12th, 2016

We usually rent a cottage during the summer and this is by far the best and most relaxing one we have stayed in so far! It had a great view of the lake from the living room and you have access to a wrap-around balcony which had an outdoor dining set where you can have breakfast/brunch and bask in the sun! We usually pack a lot of things/items with us but we did not have to do that since Wraight cottage had everything we needed (i.e. towels, cleaning stuff, extra blankets, movies, games, books etc.). The place was very well kept and the lay out and design is very tasteful in my opinion. We stayed for 3 nights and always had something to do each day. The view is amazing and each morning I would get up and go for a run to make the most of it. The owner provided a binder of helpful information around town which came very handy during our stay. It's definitely worth it for the price we paid and will be recommending Wraight Escape to friends and family!

Dear Jen and Mike,

Thank you for the warm welcome.  we enjoyed the stay and felt more like at home.  The kids had lots of fun with the movies and books collection.  We appreciate the way the things have been organized around.  Will probably use a tip or two which we learned from here in organizing things around. The boat rides (canoe and kayak) were really fun.  The BBQ place was awesome.  Welcome wine was great.  A small feedback related to outdoors were the bugs being a spoil sport.  Maybe a bug spray or two would have helped.  We did buy them the next day.

About the owners

Wraight Escape is our Great Escape! Our family has all fallen in love with cottage life - playing in the water during the day, and fishing in the evenings. We take family walks to explore the area and visit some local vendors. On the rainy days we make it a family game day - pool, darts, blokus, cards and foosball.

This is our first cottage and it has been quite an adventure for us. When we bought it in 2016 it was in need of renovations. We continue to find something to upgrade yearly and try to bring show our returning guests that there is something new or improved, welcoming suggestions for what you would like to see. We hope you enjoy our cottage as much as we do, and look forward to reading your comments about what you enjoyed most!
