We added a 1400 sq ft addition to the cottage and rebuilt the original 768 sq ft cottage to become an open concept great room, eat-in area and kitchen. They added 3 new bathrooms, 3 bedrooms , game room and den. Cam’s crew showed up everyday at 7 am and worked until 3:30-4 pm …. Fridays they would leave by 2 pm. Their work ethic was incredible. Cam handled the co-ordination of trades, all billing would then go from the trade to Cam where he would apply a tithe for his business. It was a time and material arrangement so no fixed contract, you pay up at the end of every week. We paid top dollar for the trades but that kept us first in line for getting the work done.

I hired this drywall and insulation contractor out of the Barrie area to work on my garage. They showed up on time and worked all day – even through a snow storm! They did a great job insulating, installing a vapor barrier and plywood interior on my new garage. Business contact: Piero Perciballi. Contact me for more information: email@example.com
Hired Matt’s company for the first time to trench our new electrical service and also replace our old 80′ 3rd septic pipe from the cottage to the septic tank. It involved crossing our driveway through a concrete tunnel to protect the PVC pipe. Matt showed up exactly when he said he would, then his crew also showed up the morning they were supposed to and worked non-stop until they finished. Great job and hard-working, friendly crew. We highly recommend Matt and his company. I would be happy to provide more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
From the first contact to completion we were very satisfied with what Thomas Gray did. He communicated regularly, told us what to expect and delivered as promised. His quote was accurate and the work was done when promised and completed on time. There were no surprises. The septic tank and bed are working as expected. Contact me if you’d like more info: email@example.com
I had Rick come over to put in an eavestrough and gutter guards. He was one of the best contractors I have ever had. Very meticulous, reasonable and came when he said he would.
Rick couldn’t come for a few weeks but it was worth the wait. He came on the agreed date and was done quickly – I did help him out by removing the old eavestrough. Gutter guard was installed on one section and appears to be working well. Highly recommended.
I have used their service to remove about 100 limbs high up trees near our cottage roof . They came on a Saturday morning that included heavy rain all morning . Despite the weather they climbed up the trees and safely removed and lowered the branches to the ground . His crew are a very youthful and fit group of fellows . I have recommended to other Loon and Turtle cottagers for much larger jobs with great results . Contact me if you’d like more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Darren was fast, on time, courteous, and reasonably priced. He climbed, felled and bucked two 50’+ pines for me. His business is fairly new but he is fully insured. Contact me if you’d like more information: email@example.com
I have dealt with Corey for years, including a recent visit when he showed up as the warranty repair man for our new Whirlpool propane stove. I liked him before and was just as impressed this time. Contact me if you’d like more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
Matt has done fall shut-down, spring opening and installed a new heat line for us. He is responsive and provides good service. Contact me if you’d like more information: email@example.com
Mike Lemay has serviced my outboard motor for over 10 years and I have always found him to be friendly, fair and able to coax the best performance out of my 40 yr old beast. Outdoor storage is available opposite the Home Building Centre. Mike and Rose have handled all of it but they get busy so advance planning is required. Highly recommended. Contact me if you’d like more details: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have hired this company three times now and I have always been pleased with their work. They have done only the work requested and always did a great job of cleaning up. I would hire them the next time I need some tree work done. Contact me if you want more information. email@example.com

Excellent work and convenient for LTCA members.
We booked about 10 days in advance and Bruce showed up, on time and backed his big rig up our challenging laneway like a pro! Friendly, fabulous service. Highly recommended. Contact me if you’d like more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Great choice for pump-out. Does a thorough check that everything is working well.
David Finch has done lots of work around the Loon and Turtle Lakes. Good choice.
Dan and his team were thorough and professional throughout the entire job on a very hot day.
Most reliable of all the roofers in Muskoka
Glenn was recommended by a fellow cottager! Glenn is on time knows his stuff and will not recommend aimless work to make money. We have had water pressure issues for a few years and had many plumbers out each one recommending something else and wasting money . Glenn found the issue and recommended a fix. A+++++++
We called on Glenn based on a recommendation. The first job was to help install some faucets and help with a dripping shower. We then had him out to install a filter system. Both times Glenn was on-time, friendly and got the job done. Reasonable rates. Recommended. For more info on this review, contact email@example.com
Glenn has been my plumber now for the last year. He has completely transformed my cottage, and winterized it for me. He is reliable, very knowledgeable and I trust him even when I am not at the cottage. Glenn is an A++ guy!
Glenn was recommended to me by another cottager and I couldn’t be happier. He is a capable, punctual, honest, personable guy and his work was professional.
We have had Glenn at our cottage for a few issues pertaining to our water lines and pipes. He is quick to respond and very professional, and has resolved our issues to our great satisfaction. What a great resource for our lake, and we are lucky to have a lake neighbour with great knowledge of his trade!
Gord specializes in well/lake pumps. He was able to find my fault in my system (electrial problem), provide recommendations to fix longer term and was great to deal with!
I needed a pump and a heated line changed. Gord showed up when he was supposed to and pricing was very competitive. Contact me for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
I had the opportunity to use the services of Timko Plumbing a couple of times over the past few years. I have been very pleased with their responsiveness and the quality of the work done. I would definitely use their services again. Contact me if you want more information. email@example.com
I have observed Grant’s dealings with several cottagers over the past few years whether fabricating a metal item from scratch or replacing a dock completely. All work has been done on budget and on time. He has established a reputation for providing high quality service and products on both Loon and Turtle Lakes. Grant’s email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Website: senconceptsinc.com Contact me if you’d like more information. email@example.com
Jody and his crew were easy to work with, had great suggestions, finished on time and left the site clean. Contact me for more details, if you need them. firstname.lastname@example.org
I contracted Dave to rebuild my cottage about 12 years ago and was completely satisfied with the work that was done. A few years after the rebuild, I hired him to add an extension to the building and again was very satisfied with the quality of work done and his staff that was onsite. I have hired Dave’s services several times over the years and as recent as this summer for three smaller projects. Dave is easy to work with, does quality work and I would highly recommend Dave and his company. Contact me for more information: email@example.com
I use Derek for snow plowing and for firewood. I am happy with both services he provides. Contact me if you’d like more information.
Cory has done both major and minor work at our cottage. A little pricey, but very good work.
We are very pleased with our dock. They came on time, did an amazing job and respected our lake and property. Contact me if you’d like additional information: firstname.lastname@example.org
The work done by Colin Alder was excellent and two years later is holding up well. As he seems to work alone, there was an issue in scheduling his work but it wasn’t a problem for us. Contact me if you need more information about this review: email@example.com
I have used Innovative Docks for my dock and for a major renovation. I was happy with both jobs. Contact me if you’d like more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
Simon has been with us for many years (probably 20), and has always impressed us with his skill, general knowledge of the whole property, sense of responsibility, being prompt and very honest and up-front in his dealings. Simon has maintained our property when we are not there, driving by periodically, especially in winter, to check out the property. Contact me if you’d like more information: email@example.com
Peter rebuilt our bunkie, put on our addition, and built our stairs and a wood shed. Excellent work all round. Contact me if you’d like more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pete was our general contractor on a cottage expansion project. He worked all winter in the worst weather. Excellent work.
We had a major landscaping job after construction which has lasted very well and still looks great after 6 years.
Lots of good advice plus Calvin worked very closely with our contractor to ensure a great job done.
I ordered 16′ V-pine boards for a ceiling job and the yard picked all the boards themselves (usually a risky gamble). With only a couple of exceptions, the boards were straight and true and delivered according to my instructions. Contact me if you’d like more information: email@example.com
Dan at Timbr Mart was extremely helpful in providing advice during our cottage expansion. Plus they are very supportive of the LTCA.
Excellent service and accommodating schedules. Knowledgeable and skilled. Convenient invoicing and payment methods. Good customer service from Mike and his wife Jennifer.
When I called Mike’s office, I was given a date and time for the appointment to clean my chimney. A couple of days before the appointment, I was given a reminder call. They day of the appointment, I was given a call to tell me approximately when he would arrive. He did an excellent job cleaning the chimney and hearth and his work areas was spotless when he left. I would definitely use his services again. Contact me if you’d like more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
Pete installed three windows professionally, for a fair price and in a timely fashion for us to enjoy them this summer. We made convenient preparations with him to let himself into our cottage when we were away and everything was left ship-shape. It’s a bonus that he’s a very nice guy and a pleasure to deal with. He came highly recommended and we couldn’t agree more.
Replaced roof, built decking and stairs, built dock and completed interior renovations. Rick is affordable and reliable. For more contact details contact me at email@example.com.
Mike is an excellent carpenter. His work at our cottage included adding a screened porch, a bathroom, a bathroom renovation, roofing, staircase to the lake and many repairs when needed. He is professional, courteous and honest. The quality of his work is always excellent and we would not hesitate to recommend Mike. We can be reached for further information at (416) 459-2794.
Kahshe Boat Works has been taking car of our 30-year old Larson for the last few years. They pick it up at the dock in October and put it back in the water in the spring. When we arrived last weekend it was in the water at our dock. Perfectly clean, engine strong and runs as good as new and everything works including the gauges. Before Kahshe, we were going to get rid of the boat, but apparently there are a few good years left in it!
We moved over to Kahshe Boatworks a few years ago after bad experiences with some other marinas. Chad has done some renovations on the Larson including the engine and a new floor. Boat is running better than it has for many years.
Used Kahshe Boatworks for winter storage, repairs and maintenance. Chad is always responsive and service is very good. Contact me if you’d like more details: firstname.lastname@example.org
The fire ban signs you may notice on our lake roads are being maintained and updated by a group of volunteers. Please be aware however that our volunteers may not always get signs up in time or at all or change them, when a fire ban is put in effect or changed. Significant fines and other consequences can result from any breach of a fire ban, and it is still your responsibility to be aware of the actual status of fire bans, even when there are no signs up.
