Dog Friendly Country property

Brookside Cottage is a cozy, fully renovated, open concept guest house with exquisite views - perfect for a country getaway or ski base. Located in the Hills of the Headwaters, it's close to a number of conservation areas, including the Boyne and Mono Cliffs. Hiking, skiing, golfing, snowshoeing and biking are close at hand. We offer 32 acres of wooded trails and fields for walking or snowshoeing. The area boasts a number of fine restaurants, boutiques, markets, museums and local artisans. We are 15 min from Mansfield Ski Club and Hockley Resort, and 45 min from Blue Mountain and Wasaga Beach. Ideal for couples, solo adventurers or a small family. We are dog friendly and welcome well behaved, socialized dogs.

Inside, rustic wood accents complement the modern amenities. In floor heating in shower area will keep you toasty in the winter and the new, fully stocked kitchen is open to the living space, fireplace and entertainment area. Upstairs is a small loft and bedroom with a queen-sized bed. (additional bed can be provided for children and extra guests) From every window, you'll have a view of the Mulmur Hills.

For equestrians needing accommodation, Brookside is conveniently situated near a number of hunt fixtures and competition grounds including Palgrave, Will O Wind and Wits End. "Bed and bale" is available for those looking for overnight stabling.

Why Dietrich and Taria van Weesenbeek chose Mulmur

We looked for a number of years before we found the property we knew we'd never want to leave from. It was an opportunity to bring our love of horses home with us. This area is special to us as it brings us closer to nature, provides us with the privacy and calm that we wanted yet close to every day amenities.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with the expansive views and the ever changing scenery. We often sit out, or from our window watching weather coming in, or the daily changes we see as the seasons change.

A beautiful rural setting with all modern amenities!

  • 5 of 5

The hosts could not have been any greater. Upon wandering the property I ran astray... I called to say I was lost and within fifiteen minutes my pup and I were picked up in a warm pick up. The bed was very comfortable and I will definitely be returning in the summer or fall as it will be even more beautiful. The views from the cottage are gorgeous. Cannot say enough good things about this place!
