For Lovers of Nature

Muskoka.  Lakeside.  Surrounded by forests.  Need we say more?  And although it feels as if Trenanthia Cottage is far, far away, it’s actually on the southern edge of Muskoka so we're just 90 short minutes from Toronto - super easy for all of your guests to find and enjoy!

“Spending a full week with everyone before the wedding - in this fantastic location in Muskoka – now, that was an easy sell for our wedding guests”

For Lovers of Space (Outdoor & Indoor)

Imagine exchanging your vows surrounded by nature as well as your loved ones, overlooking the lake.  If you prefer, enjoy the weather-resistant ambiance inside the cottage instead.  Depending on the size of your group, you might choose to be married on the walk-out balcony, or in the main living room with its log fireplace and cathedral ceilings.  No matter what you decide, the cottage and its' two acres of grounds are guaranteed to be full of nature - and your loved ones!

For Lovers of Laidback Fun

We're guessing you want your wedding to be memorable.  And there are a lot of ways to be memorable.  We favour the laidback, fun-filled version.  How about you?
