Hi,

I built the chalet in 2008 and now spend my time between this and another 100 year farm house property in Muskoka.

Will Cordingley purchased this chalet in 2009

As kids, we grew up cottaging on Lake Muskoka and loved it! As I got older, I couldn't resist the opportunity to live here. So, I moved up to the region to enjoy country living and all the beautiful lakes in 2009. As an avid cyclist, and outdoors enthusiast, Muskoka has all the benefits! 2 hours from the city and a world away in privacy and relaxation.

The chalet is exclusively heated in cooled with a ground source geothermal unit.

Panoramic south west views overlooking the valleys below. Great privacy as compared to many cottages in the region.

Just perfect!

We had a group of people to celebrate my 50th birthday and we all fell in love with the place. In addition to owning a cottage (not winterized), we often rent during the winter, & this was the very best so far. So spacious and finished to very high standards and tastefully decorated. Very well equipped kitchen with a large island, so even when you're preparing food, people can gather and socialize. Lots & lots of extras (big mud room with an extra fridge; great games room) and so inviting and comfortable. You won't be disappointed if you rent this stunning property!

Wonderful place to stay!!

The chalet is completely deserving of a 5 star rating, there is very little (if anything) to consider as a negative. It was a very comfortable and spacious place for my extended family to spend the week (12 of us in total). We will definitely reconsider this property for our next winter vacation!

The kitchen is modern and clean, with high quality appliances for preparing large meals, if you so desire. The family room / great room is a welcoming place to enjoy a movie or sit and read a book. There are lots of activities downstairs for kids and adults alike - even in the dead of winter if you are not the 'outdoors' type, there is enough to keep anyone busy without ever stepping outside. The bedrooms are large and welcoming, the beds are comfortable and cozy.

The chalet is close to town yet far enough away that you still feel remote and away from it all. We came to ride the OFSC trails - the location is relatively close to the trail system.

The only complaints I could think of (and it takes some thinking) would be the lack of window coverings, especially on the bedroom windows - and the relatively slow internet connection which would freeze Netflix periodically. Minor complaints and certainly liveable ones...

Cottage Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
The place was all-in-all fantastic! The pictures do not do it justice - it's beautiful with all of the natural sunlight and wood work. A real work of art!

I'm giving it a 5-star rating because it had the following:
- great open spaces
- plenty of room for friends, luggage, etc.
- clean, comfortable bedrooms
- a full washroom (including shower) on each floor (plus an additional powder room on the main level)
- a very spacious and well equipped kitchen
- an indoor 2-car garage (great in winter)
- tons of fun games in the basement
- great DVD collection
- built in Netflix and wifi throughout
- dishwasher which makes entertaining really easy
- helpful owner who ensures road is plowed during winter for easy in/out access
- less than 10 minutes drive from grocery, gas, and beer / alcohol stores
- incredible outdoor deck with 2 well-maintained barbeques
- double-oven in kitchen and 2nd fridge in mudroom
- great fireplace with ample firewood / kindling

Clearly, I was happy with the rental, but there's always opportunity to improve... some thoughts:
- the wifi in the place had difficulty streaming (and likely due to all of the people) so if you plan to stream something, try not to have many other folks using it at same time
- the master bedroom took some time to warm up so it's a good idea to turn on the heat early and give it time, and bring something warm to wear indoors in the winter
- the light switches are a bit confusing - hard to know how to turn certain lights on/off - would be great if this was explained in the rental binder (which was great by the way)
- the windows do not have blinds and so in the mornings, it can be difficult to sleep a bit later if the light bothers you - not sure how to address this one (aside from going to sleep earlier :) )

Overall, I would happily rent this property again. Great value and a great experience!

We rent a lot of properties and try to do a thorough research before committing to a rental. We wanted to ring in the new year at a special place with our extended family. We found this gem to be a sanctuary for rest and relaxation in comfort and style. This spacious and cozy home was better than advertised. It was worth every penny. The fireplace was nice as we gathered around to create lasting memories for all of us. There was lots of room for our three families, each enjoying their own level for privacy and comfort. Thanks a lot for letting us enjoy your exquisite chalet!
