In the Great Room you will find a massive stone fireplace and comfy chairs for relaxing while reading a book. If movies are more your style, move on to the media room with its flat screen TV and satellite reception. The living and dining rooms are perfect for family gatherings. In the kitchen you will find high end appliances plus all of the tools one needs for prepping meals etc. There is also a hot tub just off the Muskoka room with terrific lake views. There are 4 bedrooms in the main cottage plus a total of 4 bathrooms. We also have central air and a generator in the event of a blackout. The cottage gets all day sun from sunrise to sunset and because it’s located on a peninsula there are gentle breezes that keep it cooler on the hottest days and also keep the bugs at bay. Enjoy an evening dip in the lakeside hot tub. 
With approximately 4 acres on 580 feet of shoreline there is lots of room for children to run around and play outside. We are north east facing but because of the angle of the point of land we get sun exposure from sunrise to sunset!

Perfect Retreat!

Date of Stay:

Beautiful and well maintained Cottages sometimes don't live up to the photos, but this one absolutely does - it's beautiful, clean, well maintained and supplied. If you're looking for a comfortable cottage that has some luxury, this is it. We were there for a family long weekend and all members, from the 3 year old to the grandparents, had a great time. The only negatives, and they are so slight they're almost not worth mentioning, are that the blinds in the master were missing the remote to pull them up, the DVD in the kids bedroom was missing the cable that connects it to the TV, and the DVD in the TV room was nowhere to be found. Like I said, small issues that didn't really effect our stay, as evident by the 5 stars. We would love to come back and hope to!

The photos do not do justice!

Date of Stay:

Muskoka is just so beautiful, it's hard to put into words! We came to Canada for a family holiday and Muskoka was a highlight. The cottage itself has every available comfort of home and is located in a lovely enclave of families while still very private. Close to the town on Port Carling with great restaurants and shops and easy to get to from Toronto Airport. Maryrose and her team at Muskoka District Rentals provided fishing guide recommendations as well as a boat captain and wakeboard lessons for our teen sons. We enjoyed the recommended restaurants, especially Grand Electric, and local activities. We had a wonderful family vacation in Canada and will be back!
