About Michael Brown

Mike and Lois moved from BC to enjoy the Muskoka experience. Mike is a professional Scuba Instructor (MSDT PADI 211856). Qualify here before you head south.

Michael Brown purchased this cottage in 1952

Why Michael Brown chose Gravenhurst

Lois’ parents built the cottage in 1952. She and her family enjoyed summers there. At that time there was no road and everybody and everything had to be brought across the lake by boat. Later Lois and her first husband Bob bought the cottage from her parents. They raised their family there enjoying full summers at the cottage. Her children had summer jobs in Gravenhurst and it was their second home.

Now Michael and Lois have had the cottage for 18 years. It is a well loved family place. Our neighbours have been there for almost as long as we have and we all love the lake and the surroundings.

What makes this cottage unique

Quietness, a place for personal reflection, prayer and reading. Special family times. Fun when kids are swimming, tubing, canoeing, and enjoying the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We can't tell you how much we enjoyed the week at your cottage. Over the course of the week we had 13 different people here and it was thoroughly relaxing and fun for all.

My daughter's BBM today says "last day in paradise" and my cousin's says "what an awesome weekend".

We hope you are still renting next year because we'd love to come back!

Fully equipped, comfortable, great location!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for three nights and found the cottage to be clean, comfortable and well equipped. Everything we needed was there including cooking utensils, dishes, spices, etc. The patio is great - right at water level. A drive into town takes only about 10 minutes, so we found the location to be a nice balance between peace and quiet and convenience. There is no TV or internet, which some might find a negative but if we wanted all of that we would have just stayed home. The owner Lois was very nice and accommodating to our schedule as well. Recommended!
