About Our Family
Julie and Kurtis are a young couple that own and oversee the operation at Blue Pigeon Resort. They purchased the property in 2014 in the hopes that it will grow and become a family legacy in the future.
What was once known as Sugar Bush Cottages was rebranded as Blue Pigeon Resort with a new vision in mind and a goal of what the future will bring for them and their family. Opening its doors to the public for the first time in 2015; Julie and Kurtis understood the challenges of a new business but have managed to grow the Resort into a place where families and friends come to gather year after year.
Residing in the GTA, Blue Pigeon Resort is their summer “home”; you will often find Julie in the office and Kurtis overseeing the maintenance and operations of the site. Their combine efforts have turned Blue Pigeon Resort into the premier cottage rental in the Trent Lakes region.
They are excited to fulfill the family’s vision and enjoy meeting new friends in the process.

- Betty Ramsay ★★★★★ 5 months agoThe owners and Staff at Blue Pigeon are great to deal with. They are very prompt at answering questions or delivering needed items. The kids spend hours playing in the heated in ground pool or running around the playground. While the lake … More area is not for swimming it is great for fishing and there is always someone big or small out there with a fishing rod. it's a well laid out resort so several of us rented cabins there all close together. What I love is all the cabins we have stayed in over the years are renovated and clean. Last summer we rented one with 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms so that our large family of all ages could stay together in one place. Also, it's only a short boat ride or drive to town as well so that is amazing. We loved our stay and will stay again.
- Edwin Caliguia ★★★★★ 6 months agoMy wife and I spent a week at Blue Pigeon Resort celebrating our wedding anniversary.We had everything we needed in our cottage, and it had a great view of the lake. It was lovely to have a fire every night. The staff was incredibly helpful … More and polite; other guests were great, too. Julie and Kurtis were great hosts! Coming back and recommending it.
- Dale David ★★★★★ 5 months agoA gorgeous location and has helpful staff.We enjoyed a fantastic vacation while staying at Blue Pigeon Resort for approximately a week last August (Hey, so sorry for the late review).Kayaks and canoes were free to use, the heated pool was … More amazing, and each cottage had a BBQ and fire pit.

Staff and owners are very friendly. Lots to explore and do at the resort for all ages. Kids loved the … More sandy part at the park, trampoline and the pool. Great Lake view and fishing! Will be back for sure
- Kelsey Letang ★★★★★ 10 months agoWe rented four cottages for our group of 20+ and could not have had a better time! Julie was patient with me throughout the planning process and in helping me reschedule twice throughout the pandemic. Mary made us feel very welcome and … More was so accommodating to our large group. Everyone agreed that it was the perfect place--from the glassy lake, the huge dock, the private fire pits, and the views of the milky way!
- Glendale Reyes ★★★★★ 8 months agoStaying at the Blue Pigeon Resort truly felt like Home away from Home. My family rented the Brookie Cottage, which comfortably fit 11 of us. It really did feel more like a “house”. It was a very clean and comfortable stay.The owners … More are great hosts. They are friendly and accommodating and we instantly felt welcome as soon as we arrived at the cottage.If you enjoy fishing, you’ll have fun on the dock. There are certain times of the day where it seems liked the fish were just biting everything, so you won’t sit for hours with no action.We highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back!
- Adrian ★★★★☆ 8 months agoGreat dock views, clean cabins and awesome amenities for children. We stayed for a week with three young children and really enjoyed the resort. Very family friendly and activities for children of all ages. Fishing off the dock is great … More as well. Only downsides were oven not functioning, and extra charges for propane use. We will certainly consider staying here again.
- Jazel De los santos ★★★★★ 7 months agoThis time around we decided to try a different location and stumbled upon this resort. We always come in a group and we always come prepared so everything we expected from a good cottage experience was present. We had the necessities we … More needed to enjoy our 4 day 3 night stay and we’re able to use the lake equipment. The pool was clean and salted there was even equipment there to use for games. One thing is bring a flashlight.. it’s beautiful at night to see the sky without lighting but you also need to see the cute little frogs jumping around on the ground while you walk at night. I would definitely come again.
- kirk boquila ★★★★★ 7 months agoMy family and a group of our friends (who I also consider family) spent the long weekend here and let me tell you… I would not go anywhere else!The outdoor pool was heated and VERY well maintained, the staff were the friendliest I’ve … More ever have the pleasure to speak to, and not to mention the new found hobby (kayaking) that I’ve discovered because of the beautiful morning view. Our group was also fortunate enough to go on a day where there were clear night skies and witness the stars. It was absolutely breathtaking.One thing to note though is that you need to keep the door closed at night time to prevent any bugs from entering your safe space. (Pretty self explained but incase people decide to fight me on logic)Definitely would love to spend every Labour Day weekend here. 10/10
- Gloria Mrales-King ★★★★☆ 8 months agoVery clean, had pretty much what we needed. The lounge area was a little small, the furnitire wasn't super comfortable, but it could've been worse, and more places to store things, or clothes hooks would've been great. Otherwise … More it is was amazing. Would recommend this resort.
