Lea has been handling our rentals at the lake since 2009. Our cottage is our reprieve from the crazy life we live in the 905 rat race. We needed to rent to supplement our income to offset the operating costs after a business bankruptcy in the automotive sector in 2009.
Our property has transferred ownership and through family for generations and renting was a huge decision but a necessary one. Lea has made our rentals happen with care and professionalism for our family and the families who visit. I would not attempt to offer our cottage to visitors without her help and support. Although problems and concerns are few, any of them we encounter have been resolved with a professionalism and care that I am so grateful to encounter.
If you are either a cottage owner looking to procure the services of Kennisis Cottage Rentals or a client looking to safely rent a vacation property I have no reservations recommending Lea to facilitate your rentals.

Lea, you are a very professional business minded person, totally dedicated to your company and clients. We have been using your services at Kennisis Cottage Rentals for approximately four years now, never have we been disappointed or regretted your careful choice of renters. If we were not planning on moving we would still be calling upon you, to look after our cottage/home. Thank you for your dedication.

Thanks for your good work this past year – we’re happy to offer a testimonial. As first-time renters of our cottage, Lea was wonderful in taking us through the process and suggesting how to make the experience of renting our cottage a pleasure both for us and for our guests. She attracted just the right people for our cottage and exceeded our expectations to make our first summer a great success. We’re looking forward to working with her for years to come.

I just wanted to pass on my personal “Thanks” for a great year.
All my renters this year proved to be amazing, respectful of the property and everyone did such a great job cleaning up the place leaving it as they had found it. My cleaner told me they felt guilty taking my money!!! It worked out well.
I did not have to address one problem this year which also made my life a lot easier. Being next door – and most renters soon figured it out, I was never once bothered. I certainly hope that did not make them uncomfortable. From my observations everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.
Until next season…have a great fall & winter.

Our family is so thankful for Lea Harper’s services in renting our cottage. She has not only provided us with helpful advice and strategies about renting, but has also found us reliable, caring families who we know we can trust in our summer home. In the past four years Lea has not only proven to be a great choice professionally but has definitely made a impact on our family personally and will continue to do so in the next four.

I have been using Kennisis Cottage rentals for many years to rent my cottage on Bitter Lake.
Lea is very professional and I have been pleased with the quality of service and clients she has provided for me.
She responds promptly to any issues that may arise (there have been few) and the result is both happy renters & owners. I highly recommend her services.
