Why Dana chose Muskoka Lakes
We spent numerous summers at a friend's cottage on the lake. When one became available we knew that this was the perfect place to own a cottage.

Thank you Dana and Ilan for our perfect vacation stay at your cottage, everything was good and found as it been explained on site info. The Lake has very clear water and it pretty much quite and good for canoeing and paddle boarding as well as swimming.
Last cottage on a dead end road.
We had a wonderful time at Dana's cottage. It was very clean and well equipped. The kitchen appliances and utensils were new and in good condition. That is not always the case at rented cottages! It was very quiet most of the time, there are a few neighbouring cottages and so there was boat and people noise some of the time, but it was much quieter than the cottage we have previously rented on the Moon River. We saw and heard loons every day and night, even babies, which was just lovely. We saw snapping turtles, frogs, fish, and even a mink at the cottage, right off the dock. The cottage was close to Rosseau and Windermere. We had a very lovely lunch on the verandah of the Windermere House. My husband enjoyed the canoe provided at the cottage. Overall, highly recommended!
Beautiful and Relaxing
Not much to add that the other reviewers haven't covered, but wanted to chime in that our family too truly enjoyed this property, the lake, and local towns. The property is situated against the side of the lake without cabins, which provides a little privacy and an unspoiled view. The position of the trees ensured there was always an option to sit out and enjoy the lake in the sun or shade regardless of the time of day. Seating inside was comfortable and the enclosed porch gave us some separation from sleeping children at night.
It was August and the lake was weedless, which is great for swimming. Pan fish over 6 inches or really any fish were scarce, but there are a few locations like the buoy straight out from the dock were we found some small mouth and pike at dusk on worms. Despite my love of fishing, I might leave the poles behind next time and take a few more paddles around the beautiful lake.
Fantastic week on a High Lake
Dana’s cottage was perfect for our family. The cottage itself was really well maintained and very comfortable with a good “cottagey” feel to it. Lots of space for us with a separate area overlooking the lake. We used that room for some down time - reading, games, watching movies - there is a PS2, but we brought our own system. The lake was quiet with very little motor boat traffic, making it perfect for paddle boarding or canoeing. And the water was warm relative to most other lakes - we could walk in without the cold shock. The sandy beach area was also a great feature, with some major sandcastle construction undertaken. And the large platform of the dock made it our favourite space to sit with a beverage until we’d had too much sun, at which point we moved under the trees. Overall, this was a perfect spot to relax for our vacation.
3 Generations of fun
We wanted to try something new this year, so we discovered and started searching on Home Away.
Wow, were we ever surprised. Expectations were exceeded
From the spacious cottage, to the view, to the walk out to the lake.
We had 3 generations on this trip and everyone loved it. The kids loved the shallow water and paddle boat. The grandparents loved the walk-out from their room to the relaxing back deck. The parents loved the sun room for reading, enjoying a drink and staring out at the view. We went during a heat wave and enjoyed and appreciated the cool water. The dock makes it feel as if you are the only ones on the lake. It was also nice to enjoy a beverage while watching the kids swim and able to jump in and join them.
If you needed any supplies it was only a 10 min drive to Rosseau which made it very convenient. Dana was very prompt to respond to any questions that we had.
We would definitely recommend this property for anyone of any generation.
