Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Jo-Dee and Dan are the proud owners of Severn Escape. After years of renting cottages around the Severn area and boating on Lake Simcoe and Georgian Bay, they decided, with their 3 teenaged daughters, to own a place in the Muskoka Lakes district, and share it with others who are as passionate as they are about this beautiful region. Jo-Dee is an experienced interior real-estate stager, so you will notice her impeccable style the minute you step into Severn Escape. Dan works in Toronto, and truly enjoys the short commute to their cottage getaway. Severn Escape has been fashioned with every conceivable amenity, it's ideally set up for entertaining while ensuring it maintains a relaxed surrounding. Their ideal tenants will share an enjoyment for the finer surroundings, taking care to maintain this home with respect for its owners and the tenants that will follow.

Why the Owner Chose Severn Bridge, ON, Canada:
Severn Escape has the perfect blend of all the conveniences of a luxury home, while in the beautiful surroundings of the Muskoka lakes district: Miles of boating waterways on the Severn and sunsets on Sparrow Lake. You can also sit in the outdoors regardless of weather in the screened in porch. Yet it is less than 1.5 hours from Toronto, and half way between Orillia and Gravenhurst still close enough for attractions and any purchases you may need.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Severn Escape is an ideal location for your winter or summer getaway: It lets you stay connected via internet, its got all your creature comforts, while at the same time it is the perfect spot to relax and unwind with family and friends. It gives you all the space to enjoy activities together or separate: While the adults entertain on the main floor living or dining room area, the kids can enjoy the spacious rec room area, with their own entertainment or music. Then all parties can come together for dinner on the large deck or a singalong at the firepit. Its time for a Severn Escape...
