♡Looking to escape the hustle? Wanna chill out with friends for a weekend? Experience making tasty s'mores at the bonfire with your kids. Watch as the kids put their screens down, hunt for frogs & get back to life. Grab a bevy! Chill out after a fun day in the sun. Gaze at the countless stars from a Muskoka chair at your fire pit in the front yard. Your tranquil island cottage awaits. A charming waterfront space that is bright, open & airy for your stay♡ Please read the entire description. It will help set expectations. Or at LEAST read the big bullet points ;) ● We live on-site with 2 guardian dogs (a maremma sheepdog & a maremma/border collie). They will more than likely make their way over for a quick visit during your stay. They're well-trained & very friendly. ● Bring water to drink...♡Looking to escape the hustle?

We had a wonderful time here. Very picturesque with a resort feel. You can choose to socialize or have a quaint quiet time. The Hosts Courtney and Chris are welcoming, friendly, very attentive and provide a 5 star service going above and beyond. They even took us for a ride on their boat. The cabins are well stocked with linens and kitchen supplies. The grounds are gorgeous with gardens throughout, there is a hammock for relaxing on, a swimming area, a huge dock to sit and checkout the beautiful views and sunsets. Perfect if you are traveling from afar or just a weekend getaway. We stayed only one night and we were completely impressed. We can’t wait to return. Thanks so much for the great time Courtney and Chris.
