Holiday Rental House
Our cottage is a home away from home. It has all that is required for your stay to be comfortable, but comes with a touch of solitude. In winter enjoy snowshoeing and skiing at local conservation areas, or zip up to Algonquin Park for dog sledding or Huntsville for downhill skiing at Hidden Valley. In the summer sip your favourite beverage on the porch, watch the kids play in the quiet super clean Muskoka River. There is also lots of great fishing nearby and we have even had goodluck catching fish right off our dock. If indoor activities are more your style: Our woodstove is a cozy place to curl up in front of or take advantage of the big kitchen area to make a gourmet meal. --------- We provide six bath towels, and various hand towels as well as dish rags/towels in the kitchen.

We provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash, Q-tip, and hair dryer. We do not provide beach towels, or face clothes, so please bring your own. We also do not provide bug spray. There are two propane tanks, please adhere to our pay it forward mentality and leave the bbq tank full for the next person to use it. We will not provide full ones for you. We have a paddleboat that is available to use with two adult life jackets and two youth life jackets. ----- Please treat our home as if it is your home. Just take your shoes off at the door and come in and enjoy. (Please no smoking anywhere on the property). Respect our neighbours, as if they were your neighbours (e.g. no loud music, fireworks). Please do not leave any food behind, and be sure to put your garbage in the garbage bin by the road (if you have more than one bag please take it with you) And most importantly, respect our beautiful environment. People come to Muskoka for its beauty and clean lakes and rivers. Let's all keep it beautiful! And of course have fun!More

The cottage was very beautiful and spacious on the inside. It was nice to have more then one bathroom so you're not waiting to use it. The driveway was horrendous getting in and out of. The owners should have granted it at the beginning of...More

We were very happy with the layout and the cleanliness of this property. Also enjoyed the paddle boat. The driveway is very steep and a bit of a challenge but other than that everything was great. Would definitely stay here again!

About the neighbourhood
Our cottage is located in very quiet family riverfront neighbourhood located just 15min from downtown Bracebridge, Santa's Village and the Lady Muskoka Cruises. Come and enjoy the local triathlon culture, canoe racing, and culinary experiences in the province! There is no public transit. But everything is just a short drive. Gravenhurst and the Muskoka Steamships are 20min away. Algonquin Park is less than 1 hr. drive away. Lots of hiking areas - Wilson Falls trail, High Falls, Strawberry Bay trail and many more.
