About Penny Hanley

We are business owners who built this cottage ourselves ... our own hands. We have 4 children and built the cottage with children and multiple families enjoying the lake in mind. The property is beautiful with 75 acres to roam and the cottage is located just 50 feet from the lake.

Penny Hanley purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Penny Hanley chose The Archipelago

Just 2 hours from Toronto, located next door to the Muskoka lakes without all of the busy boat traffic. Muskoka towns are close by with exceptional golf courses surrounding this location. Mariners Cove marina located on lake complete with boat rentals, jet ski rentals and water sport rentals. Moon River marina located on Georgian Bay is just a 5 min drive away complete with LCBO and snacks. This property is stunning ... from the 140 year old barn board floors to the 10" X 14" BC douglas fir posts and beams, you will marvel at the structure. The property is beautiful with 75 acres to roam and the cottage is located just 50 feet from the lake.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful lake views, 75 acres to explore, custom built gorgeous lake house

What an awsome place

  • 5 of 5

We had the time of our life with our three children at this wonderful house at the lake.

It really is a paradise and we are so grateful that we were aloud to share it.

Everyone of us loved it the moment we arrived. The house is gorgeously set at the lake, very peaceful and everywhere you can feel that it was built by heart.

Penny and Matt gave us the feeling that we were very welcome and everything was totally uncomplicated, friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Thank you so much!

Beautiful and very private stay in Mactier

  • 5 of 5

This lakehouse on Healey Lake is private and just beautiful. It's perfect for large families with lots of beds and a large open kitchen/Muskoka room. It has everything you'll need for a perfect family vacation. The fire pit was awesome at night and there's lots of wood to burn! The lake itself is very quiet and perfect for kids to swim and fish. We caught over 30 fish during our stay which made our boys happy! We enjoyed the kayak and the water trampoline was a total hit!

I will say you should come prepared because it is a bit of a drive to get to the grocery store but hey- you're in Muskoka :) Bring your own towels, detergent, shampoo etc so you don't have to run out except maybe to the LCBO which isn't too far :) The owners Penny and Matt are lovely and very responsive. Cheers!

What an amazing cottage! We went with our best friends and their kids and we had the time of our lives. It was clean, private, spacious and beautiful. It was as if we were at a resort as the owners provided so much for us. Those little details mean so much to renters. Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of paradise with our two families.

Stunning Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this cottage for a week and had an unbelievable time. It was so peaceful, everyone on the lake was so friendly. Beautiful lake with the ability to do a lot of water sports. There was a lot of privacy and space on the lot. The cottage itself has amazing rooms, with a lot of amenities. There are a lot of places around the lake to go; close to restaurants and cute towns around Muskoka. Overall, i had a fantastic stay and would HIGHLY recommend for anyone interested, to go up for a trip.
