About Lori Verbeek
It was my dream to sell my family home of 32 years in Winona, Ontario and purchase a "cottagey" home in a "cottagey" environment. Plus purchase another home in Florida to visit in the winter. My dream was finally realized a few years ago. It is my wish that you can come and get as much enjoyment, relaxation and joy out of my home as I do. This is really paradise!
Lori Verbeek purchased this House in 2014
Why Lori Verbeek chose Bracebridge
I love this property as it has a cottage feel. Yet all the comforts of a house.
What makes this House unique
The generator helps you feel safe in case of power outages. My home is extremely peaceful in the winter months. Snow is plowed by the town, driveway is well maintained. All wheel drive is recommended in winter in Bracebridge.

Overall ...a nice, peaceful, relaxing place with a couple nice bonuses
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The dock was long which lead to very deep water. You couldn't just go from the shore though. It was very peaceful and quiet on the dock and area.
The water has some color to it, as most do in the area, but fairly warm and you can canoe each way for quite a while
The cottage was nicely decorated. It was a few minutes off the main road but You got use to it and is about 15 minutes to gravenhurst
We made use of the canoe and wood burning fireplace, which was nice
Their is a king bed in the master bedroom, overlooking the back deck but the bed will need to be replaced in the next little while
In the 2nd bedroom, it has patio doors to a side deck with a double bed
The bathroom has a nice size tub
Internet and Netflix was a nice addition
We did see the owner a few times
Overall.... great, peaceful , quiet and relaxing, with so nice bonuses
The King bed doesn't need to be replaced, there is a down topper on it. I am going to take it now. :)
It was a pleasure to meet you!
Thanks for your feedback.
Was there in August with my two boys. We had a great time. The cottage was very clean. Long walk to the dock so bring running shoes. The patio out back was lovely and shaded for afternoon reading!
A great option for enjoying the Muskoka countryside while also enjoying some home comforts.
We had a great time at Lori's cabin in the woods. Our son really enjoyed access to the river and use of the kayak. It's quite a steep climb down but we managed fine and are not very fit ! Sitting on the balcony felt like being in a tree house with views down to the river and we very much enjoyed sitting there for breakfast or with a beer in the evening. It's also only a 15 minute drive to the pretty down of Bracebridge and we drove as far as Parry Sound in only 90 minutes. The cabin is clean and comfortable rather than luxurious but it has all you need for a holiday let. At the time we stayed Lori was living in the basement but we did not really see her other than when we did a laundry. We would certainly consider this again when next in this part of Canada.
Thank you Lori! We had a great relaxing time. Hope to be back next year :)
The property was very neat and clean. The kitchen was fully equipped, we were able to use the bbq. During the night we relaxed and watched Netflix. Would definitely recommend this cottage/home to friends and family :)
Wonderful place to spend our week! Loved the home and the woods. Water is peaceful.
Lori was a wonderful host! Her home is cute, clean and has all the amenities that city people like to have. My daughters and my goal was rest and relaxation by the water and that was easily achieved. Not too far for shopping and restaurants in Bracebridge, Huntsville And Gravenhurst. Thank you Lori for sharing your lovely home with us. Health permitting, perhaps we can come next year? 😊�😤�💖�

Thanks Joanne, It was such a pleasure to meet you and Carolyn. Hope you visit again! Lori
Great location and well maintained cottage
My wife & I spent 5 days at Lori's cottage. The booking process was great and Lori was very responsive. It is a perfect location for just relaxing, or as a home base for travelling to places like Gravenhurst, Bracebridge and Huntsville. Very clean, organized and ready to use. We went in the fall and the tree colours were in full force - very picturesque. If you wish to use the dock or enjoy the canoe, be ready for a hike down the trail and back up again - it's a good workout :-)
We will consider this location in the future for sure.
Close to Lady Muskoka cruises, snow mobile trails, Santa's Village.
