About Peggy Heipel
We absolutely love the Muskoka and Trent Severn Waterway area. Nothing feels better than arriving at the cottage for fun and relaxation on land and on the water. We are both from southwestern ontario, growing up near Sauble Beach and smaller inland lakes and currently living in Goderich located on Lake Huron. Never wanting to be too far from the water we found this Retreat to be the perfect haven for summertime fun in the sun . We want to share this gem with everyone that has time and the desire to get away from the busy hustle and bustle of the day to day grind. Contact us if you want to experience Cottage Living.
Peggy Heipel purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Peggy Heipel chose Muskoka Lakes
This will be the 4th season of boating the Trent Severn Waterway for us , and we see so many amazing cottages along the way. We see families and friends getting together at the cottage and enjoying the beauty of being right on the water , privacy and seclusion that you only see from the water. We wanted to have a piece of this beauty to enjoy with our families and friends and share with everyone that has the same love of getting away to Cottage Country .
What makes this Cottage unique

The deck that never ends for sunning and shade and entertaining. Big bay windows with fabulous views of the water and mother nature all around. Located in a low wake zone so boat traffic is slow moving. Nestled in between 2 of the trent severn waterway locks.

We had an absolutely amazing stay at the retreat!
This is a absolutely beautiful place to stay. The house is huge and the views are amazing. There is everything we needed for a perfect vacation. Loved every part of our stay from going kayaking for the first time to enjoying morning coffee on the deck watching the boats go by! Can't wait to return back again.

Common areas of the cottage are very big and laid out well , its bigger than the pictures
Great location , easy access to everything. The view is pristine. Bedroom layouts are perfect and there is lots of room if the weather doesn’t go your way. If you respect a well maintained property this is for you. The little incidentals that you forgot to bring , there is stuff there to help make your stay very unstressful. Great owners and great place will return!!!!
