This year will be the fourth return to Gladstone Lodge for my friends and I, because it doesn't disappoint. Whether we're spending the day at the dock and in the lake, or the evenings at the fire pit or in the screened in porch, this cottage satisfies. The property is beautiful, the cottage is clean, spacious and comfortable and the amenities offer all the comforts of home, while still providing a true Muskoka cottage experience. Truly a must-try!

Gladstone Lodge exceeded our expectations. We required an immaculate cottage with modern amenities, clean lake, beautiful surroundings, comfortable beds, enough bedrooms and bathrooms for six adults and three boys, ages 7-10, swimming and boating equipment (anchored and floating docks, canoe, paddle boat, three kayaks), BBQ, outside deck for family meals, large indoor porch and dining room, and two family areas/living rooms. We got it all and more. Unfortunately due to a fire ban, we could not use the firepit, but it was there and surrounded by comfortable Muskoka chairs. The lake was quiet, just a few motor boats on the weekend, water clear and warm, with quiet neighbours. Docks and shoreline sunny all day, with just the right amount of shade on the property and on the deck for dining. We loved the combination of renovated historic log cabin and period decor along with the best quality and top-of-the line kitchen cooking implements and appliances which were very much appreciated by the people in the family who enjoy cooking. Three active boys played in the water all day long and were thrilled to be able to canoe, kayak and paddle-boat independently. Their parents were able to relax and have a restful break from their busy careers. It was a pleasure dealing with Terry. We highly recommend this cottage to people who are very particular about wanting a clean and spotless living space and to those who want a peaceful environment with all the best that a cottage can offer.

About the owner: Terry and Mark live and work in Toronto and spend half of their time in Muskoka. They have a passion for all things cottage and lovingly restored this rare log cabin for two years making it the perfect place to spend a summer vacation. Terry is a food stylist in Toronto and Mark works for Air Canada.
Why the Owner Chose Muskoka Lakes Township:
We chose Baysville for the amazing nature, beautifully treed roads and proximity to Lake of Bays and the historic surrounding areas. We were excited to find a rare log cottage from the 1930's. We were also enticed by how one can enjoy the quiet or seek out local attractions. Near Historic Bigwin Island, charming town of Hunstville and tiny beautiful Baysville it is the perfect location for a summer vacation. Neighbors and local townspeople are friendly and helpful and full of pride for the area. The lake is beautifully calm and quiet and great for swimming. The area is blessed to be part of the great Canadian Shield.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We fell in love with the old log and the amazing large porch, perfect for eating breakfast or having drinks before dinner with a perfect view of the water. Unique benefits are quiet and calm lake, warm for swimming. Large flat rocks gently lead into shallow water with sand packed bottom which is great for swimmers of all ages. 2000 square feet of indoor living space on two floors is extremely comfortable for families. TV lounge in addition to living room allows kids and parents to pursue separate activities if desired. Feeling like you are back in time but with all the modern comforts of home is a rare experience. Not many log cabins of this age left in Muskoka. Wonderful wildlife and bird watching.
