Client Testimonials

“… Responsive, reliable, reasonable…”  That’s what comes to mind when we think of the team at Severn Cottage Services Inc.  We have used their services over the past two seasons and have been consistently pleased with how they do what they say they will, when they say they will.  As cottage owners, it brings us great peace of mind to know that our property is maintained and managed in a way that often exceeds our expectations and that we are free to make the most of our short cottage season doing the things we love most. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Randy, Sandy and their team to anyone who wants worry-free, professional property management support.

If you are even remotely contemplating renting your cottage, or you are anxious about other people staying/renting at your place or if you have decided to rent it but are not sure where to begin, then do one thing and one thing only:

call Randy and Sandy at Severn Cottage Services!

They are absolutely the best at making all of this easier, less stressful and more doable – not to mention more cost effective and profitable.

No, they did not pay me to say this and I do not work for them! But yes, we are very happy customers of theirs who can say this so strongly because they have time and time again, come through for us to make renting our cottage a no-brainer.

Working with them has helped us have more money to improve our cottage (and pay taxes) and it has made it so easy to make it work renting our cottage without any stress.

Our cottage is nicer than ever and we appreciate using it ourselves more than ever!

They are an 11 out of 10!

Dear Sandy and Randy
We just wanted to tell you again how much we appreciated your Liaison assistance with the garage door repairs. As you are aware we were robbed recently by a contractor we didn’t know but who did come recommended by one of our neighbours. This person cut a hole in our garage door to gain entrance to the cottage. When the time came to repair the garage door we were a little concerned about having another “unknown” contractor in our place. It gave us considerable peace of mind to know that someone we know and trust was overseeing the repair and it meant neither Jim or I had to take time off work to be there.
It is also comforting to know that you are checking on the place for us. One of the first questions the insurance company asked us was “when was the last time you or someone checked on the cottage?”. Even when we aren’t there for a while we know that if anything goes amiss we will hear about it right away. Again, this gives us great peace of mind.
Thanks again
Jim & Peggy F.

I’m writing to recommend Severn Cottage Services to my friends up in Muskoka Lakes and Severn Township. We recently had a tricky job that needed heavy trenching equipment in and out of our water access property at Swift Rapids.  Variables such as weather and equipment availability meant we needed a team that was flexible yet still priced competitively for our fixed budget. We hired SCS based on a recommendation and couldn’t be happier with the result. Sandy was cheerful and responded quickly to our emails even when mother nature changed our plans and Maurice, our pilot, was pleasant and punctual. Everything went off without a hitch… even when we threw a wrench into the works! We'll definitely keep the team at SCS on speed dial!

"Randy and Sandy, thank you very much for all of the great work you did for us to get our new cottage ready for us to enjoy. We asked for a lot on very short notice, and each time you went the extra mile and exceeded our expectations. Thanks to you, we were able to move in hassle free and start enjoying our property from day one."

Best regards,





Our family of 7 adults had the pleasure of staying two weeks in August 2012 at the clean and charming Bear Rock Inn.  I have nothing but good things to say about this warm and inviting cottage.  The front porch became the hub for family meals and endless games of cribbage, backgammon and cards.   We swam and fished off the dock on a daily basis and made great use of the two canoes and paddle boat.

 Randy and Sandy were perfect hosts and always available if we had any questions.  I highly recommend this cottage for a fun-filled family vacation.

I am very pleased with the Service that is provided by Severn Cottage Services.   This past winter they carefully shovelled off very deep snow on my cottage roof and took the time to look around and found that my shed needed to have the snow removed.  I have used their cleaning service for the last 2 years and am pleased at the service and the time they take to pay attention to detail.  They are reliable and responsible and above all care that the service they provide is the best.   I recommend them to anyone.
