Featuring no contact self check in, fast & capable WiFi, 32 inch Smart TV, a well-equipped kitchenette & propane BBQ and heated floors throughout. 5 minutes to central Huntsville making this an ideal home base. Currently offering long term discounts (28 nights or more)... feel free to reach out!

The space
Enjoy our newly built guest cottage on the back of our property by the pond. A short 5 minute drive to Main St. in central Huntsville keeps you close by to all of the action. With a comfy queen sized bed in the bedroom and a spacious new bathroom, you'll be more than comfortable here. The guest cottage offers a well equipped kitchenette with a fridge, chest freezer (in the utility room), microwave, toaster oven, kettle and coffee maker. Also includes an electric fry pan, 2 induction cook top burners and slow cooker and all pots/pans as well. Please note that it is a kitchenette & there are no full size appliances. The living room features a comfortable love seat, dining table, Smart TV, WiFi throughout, plus a covered front porch with a propane BBQ and hammock & outdoor table & chairs that make it feel like a nice little home away from home. There's a large bathroom with a huge walk-in shower, towels & toiletries provided. Heated floors throughout the unit as well to ensure you stay cozy in the cooler months. The yard is also available for your use & is large & well-kept.

Please note that we also rent out the main house on the property & it could be rented with guests the same time as you. It is approximately 100 feet away from the main house which makes it very separate & secluded. If you have a large group of 10 people please enquire within to rent both units.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire guest cottage & surrounding property during your stay. The property is not located on a lake, but there are access points just a few minutes down the road from the property. There's also Avery Beach located approximately 8 minutes away car. Arrowhead Park and Port Sydney also have cute beaches nearby (both approximately 15 minutes away by car).
You will have self check in with a digital keyless lock. Code & instructions will be provided a few days prior to check in.
If guests are staying in the main house the same dates as you we will do our best to inform them & ask them to keep 1 side of the wrap-around driveway clear for you at all times.

Other things to note
Thank you for taking care of our property. We ask that you treat the property with care, just as we do. We take pride in this home & put a lot of care & work into it to make it an amazing experience for our guests. Please note the following:

- No smoking/vaping inside the unit. If you choose to smoke, we ask that you smoke/vape outside & that you are responsible & safe with ashes & cigarette butts & they are disposed of carefully. Do not discard cigarette butts or any other kind of smoking waste on our property as you could be charged a fee.
- No parties/events/visitors/unauthorized guests or overnight guests.
- There is also the main house on the property located approximately 100ft away that we rent out separately to other guests, or together to larger groups. Please enquire within if you'd like to book both properties for a larger group (maximum of 10 people).
- Property is not water front but has lake access points just down Brunel road, as well as at the public docks in town, Avery Beach, Hutcheson Beach, Arrowhead Park and Port Sydney.
- If you use any streaming apps on the Smart TV please remember to log out of them upon checkout!
- For winter, it's recommended that guests have winter tires on their vehicles as there is an incline to the driveway. We also have a snow plow service that plows the wrap-around driveway as well as the guest cottage driveway.
- Please do not litter on the property.
- We do our best to maintain it at a high level, but sometimes a few furry visitors and/or bugs may be around. It happens up in Muskoka!
- General tidy up from your stay is very much appreciated upon check out. Thank you:)

Thank you for checking out our property! Huntsville became our summer getaway destination of choice ever since one of my brothers moved here over 19 years ago from south-western Ontario's farm country where we grew up. Since then more of our family has relocated to this area making it feel more and more like a home away from home. My partner Bryan & I are excited to have a future here now with them, while enjoying all that Muskoka has to offer. This home is a dream come true for us and has quite a history of its own. We're pleased to share it with you while we continue to balance our lives both in Huntsville & Toronto. We've got a great and well established network of friends, family and local businesses here in Huntsville should you need anything at all to make your stay even better. We hope you enjoy your visit and enjoy Huntsville and surrounding area as much as we do. We'll do our best to make sure of it!
