Overview

About the property

9 bedroom compound great for family get togethers.

Located only 15 minutes from the town of Gravenhurst is a private family compound with 3 separate cottages. Offering full privacy on almost 2 acres of land and outstanding views of the lake, this property has it all for your vacation getaway.

With deep water off the end of the dock, a small sandy beach area for the kids, canoes, kayaks, a trampoline and many patio and muskoka chairs, vacationing doesn't get any better.

Every cottage has an open concept kitchen, dining and living room. Each unit has 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, a fully stocked kitchen, satellite TV and living room with unique water views overlooking the lake. The cottages are only a few steps away from the beautiful and quiet waters of Pine Lake but separated from each other offering privacy when needed.

About Marshall Mednick

We've been cottagers since the time we were born and recently purchased this family compound. We'd love to share our cottage with others at this most unique cottage property.

Marshall Mednick purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Marshall Mednick chose Muskoka District

This property boasts 3 cottages each with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom allowing for friends and families to enjoy each others company but still allowing for separation.

Pine lake is divided into 3 lakes that are all connected. This property is located on Pine lake 2 which is quieter than Pine lake 1. Pine lake 3 is surrounded by crown land and therefore there are no cottages.

Family moon

  • 5 of 5

Property is very well maintained, has all the comforts of home. The owners Marshall and Stephanie were very helpful with attractions and stores in the area (especially the Bakery). Beautiful lake great for swimming, boarding, skiing and fishing (our grandsons were excited as they caught a fish on every outing) or just relaxing on the dock. Sitting around the fire was a family favourite. Family from England loved the area, lots to see and do. Our last evening was dinner at the Dockside, great eating. A great place for a family holiday..highly recommend it.

Wonderful holiday location!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottages are extremely well-equipped, especially the kitchens...everything you could want or need. The location is very private. Perfect for water sports, fishing, and also quiet time, with multiple places to relax... both outside and inside!! Our little grandson was thrilled to catch his first fish there!!

It was a great family time for us, and I certainly would go back.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

These 3 cottages were the perfect set up for our family of 10 adults and 2 young children. The kitchens were well equipped and the board games in the cottages were great to have on hand for a rainy day. The location provides a private, quiet and picturesque setting. We enjoyed using the kayaks and the canoes, fishing, swimming and sitting around the bonfire in the evenings. The owners were very accommodating and ensured that everything we needed was there to add to a most enjoyable vacation.

Quality time together.

  • 5 of 5

We had a glorious weekend. The weather awas perfect. My husband and I spent two days with our grandchildren who are ten and eight. The time flew by very quickly as the kids kayaked, canoed, swam, fished, and jumped on the trampoline. In the evening we played cards and board games. Neither child asked to watch television or use their iPad . We went into Gravenhurst one evening for ice cream and a short walk in the town. A great time was had by all

the owner was great an cooperative. the did everything to. make sure we have an excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautiful. The view was breathtaking. The privacy was there if you wanted to be separated from other family members yet was a warm place to bring a large group together. You barely find a place where you can fit a large group and yet be comfortable. I am looking forward to rent this property in the summer. :)

A Small Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a true gem! Photos do not justify the peaceful serenity of this property. The entire 360º view is just beautiful. The plush forest, birds chirping away, slight rustling of the tree canopy above – I instantly became relaxed as soon as i stepped out of the car. The property is very clean, well maintained and the landscaped steps down to the water was great. A really nice surprise was the hammock and the elevated view overlooking the bay and sunsets on the southwest side of the property.

My wife and I enjoyed taking advantage of the canoe/kayaks for some mid afternoon paddles and relaxing under the stars at night next to the campfire was a real treat. We are already talking about another visit next year :)
