The Space

The driveway into the cottage is over 200 metres long, winding down a forested hill from the road into a private valley that is a combination of rolling hills, gardens, trees and some ponds further back on the property. There’s an outdoor fire pit for bonfires and an indoor wood-burning fireplace for chilly evenings and mornings. We supply a reasonable amount of wood for both indoor and outdoor fires.

No neighbours are visible from the cottage so you’ll be able to enjoy a fully immersive private experience. Enjoy the 4-person soft-sided hot tub or take some time for yourself in the cedar sauna. The cottage is best suited to accommodate 4 adults or a small family. The layout of the home is all on one level, although there are two steps from the outside to get into the home.

Bathroom

There is a full bathroom with a tub/shower. There’s also a private outhouse outside for emergencies!

Wildlife

The acreage this cottage sits on is largely forested, with part of it being grassy field, and in between there is a series of creek-fed small ponds. This environment makes it welcoming to many different types of wildlife. There’s a beaver dam right on the property, with the beaver’s lodge located on another of the ponds. You may see moose (look for the tracks on a hike), deer, wolves, foxes, rabbits and numerous types of squirrels, chipmunks and birds.

Bracebridge, Ontario

Our neighbourhood is a rural road which, while being 5 minutes from the town of Bracebridge, offers a private, quiet, truly Muskoka experience. Though you’re close to everything, you are genuinely right in the wilderness.

There is a public bus system locally but in order to get into the closest town of Bracebridge, or the nearby towns of Gravenhurst, Huntsville, Port Sydney and Baysville you’ll need a vehicle of your own.
