Got a question? Chat with us live
People have been coming to vacation in Muskoka since the 1800's.  And why not when there's so much natural fun to choose from?  Gather your family & friends to share canoeing, fishing off the dock, playing horseshoes & volleyball, building sand castles on the beach or a round of good old fashioned board games.  Even when it's cold outside, make memories to keep you warm: ice-fishing, cross-country skiing, skating, snowmobiling, snow fort building or our personal favourite, building massive snowpeople

Outdoor hot tub

Whether you like a quiet soak with your partner, or a boisterous splash with family & friends, enjoy the bubbles and lakeside views in the outdoor hot tub ( open all year round )

Lakeside sauna

Bask in the warmth of the wood-fired sauna while overlooking the lake.  Jump out and roll around in the water or snow for a refreshing (and healthy) gasp, erm, giggle

Games room

Shrieks of laughter spring from the vintage games room - endowed with a stand-up piano; a skeeball machine ( popular 1950's arcade game a bit like the love-child of bowling & target practice ); a crokinole board ( 1860's canadian game kinda like indoor curling ); the classic dartboard; and, of course, copious board games

Log fireplaces & outdoor fire pit

Sharing ghost stories is best done in front of the fire light, isn't it? Gather 'round the outdoor fire pit or in front of one of the beautiful log fireplaces in each of the two living rooms

Lots of space (sleeps 12)

Spacious and open plan to maximise the sociability factor.  Besides the copious bedrooms and bathrooms ( five and four, respectively ), there's a games room and two living rooms.  Life is bigger with six couches

Family owned & loved

Yup, it really is our grandmother that talks about whiffletrees and winter warmers. We love the cottage & sure hope ya feel it shimmering through


As grandma likes to say "she who leaves a trail of glitter ain't never gonna be forgotten" so we've added a bit o' glitter to cottage country with our one-of-a-kind ( & slightly bonkers ) escapades  ( Read more )

Free internet

Stay in touch with loved ones further afield.  Share your memories as they happen - on the free high speed wifi available wirelessly anywhere in the cottage and outside on the deck.  Selfie anyone?

We love pets 

You wouldn't leave grandpa behind, would ya?  ( Well, you might if he insists on slurping his soup like that. ) Pets are welcome for free so bring 'em along.  Read more

Close to Toronto 

The road trip games won't last long - just 90 minutes from Toronto.  You'll be playing on the lake in no time

Open year round

Grandma's winter warmer recipe :  Combine snowflakes, winter skies, family & friends.  Throw in a dash of playing on the ice followed by a generous helping of roaring fires.  Mix together and serve warm.  Dee-licious
