Whether Traditional or Luxury, We Have the Cottage For You!



The resort is situated on the shores of Lake of Bays in the heart of Muskoka, an area renowned in the summer for its pristine lakes, spectacular beauty, clean air, and abundance of wildlife.

Reconnect in the Heart of Muskoka

We are located on the shores of Lake of Bays in the heart of Muskoka, an area renowned for its pristine lakes, natural beauty, clean air, and abundance of wildlife! To those living in Ontario, the area is affectionately referred to as “Cottage Country”. We’re close enough to be a convenient getaway, and far enough to leave it all behind!

Prime Vacation Time!

June, July and August are generally the warmest months in Ontario and prime time to book your vacation. Reserve early, and set aside some time to reconnect with family and unwind. You work hard, and what’s the point if you can’t enjoy the fruits of your labour sometimes. So sit back, relax and enjoy all that Muskoka has to offer!

Next Door to Wildlife

You may have to be an early riser. If you walk along roads leading to the resort, you may see deer, moose, fox, bear, mink, martens, otter, beaver, squirrels, skunks, porcupines, raccoons, chipmunks, wolves, and many different species of birds. Wild animals generally avoid humans. However, they will cross your path from time to time while you’re driving or walking. Guests who are early risers have seen them in the morning walking across the beach and open spaces while others are still asleep. They’ll run as soon as they spot you. However, sometimes you’ll be lucky enough to capture them with your camera.
