About the owner: My wife introduced me to cottaging early on in our relationship and I was hooked. The relaxation that comes with the serenity of being on a lake just doesn't happen in the city. Now that I am a dad with three young boys, relaxation has been replaced by play, and I'm loving every minute of it! I know the memories we will build for our boys at this special place will last a life time.
Why the Owner Chose Georgian Bay: My wife and I bought this cottage in Honey Harbour for its stunning scenery, amazing boating, and family friendly atmosphere. The added bonus is that you get that quintessential Muskoka feel in less then 2 hours from Toronto! You can't beat that.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We love that we have to take the boat everywhere we go. It's a mindset that we have embraced and thoroughly enjoy. Every time we get in the boat it is an adventure!
