About the owner: We live and work in Toronto and cottage all summer with our children each year in Muskoka. Both of us grew up spending entire summers at a cottage lake (one of our families in Muskoka for 140 years; one in the Kawarthas for two generations) and have continued to spend each and every summer of our lives in cottage country. Both of us know and value the magic of country existence far from the hustle of city life, a peaceful getaway in earshot of the lapping waves on the dock. We take our visitors' satisfaction with their booking very seriously and strive to develop repeat clientele that come to get to know the place and return because they love it!
