About Will Cordingley

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

Why Will Cordingley chose Bardsville

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.

What makes this chalet unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful home. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay here. We thouroughly enjoyed every minute and look forward to coming again!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting the chalet with family and friends. The chalet was clean upon arrival and relativley easy to find. (Although, I do not think there was a green 911 address sign at the end of the drive)

This chalet has everything to entertain all ages, we loved the surround sound on the main level, and the large kitchen made it easy and comfortable to make meals. The basement had many activities to do, and my only complaint would be that there were no unbroken darts and the air hockey table didnt seem fully functional.

The men we were with brought up their sleds and the OFSC trails were right there, they planned a trip around Lake Muskoka and were back in time for dinner. This chalet, as described we felt could easily sleep 15 if needed. We would all love to come back and enjoy the chalet in the summertime, the deck looked spectacular but was a bit too snow covered to take advantage of at this time of year.

Thanks Will for allowing us to use your place! We can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Hi K, Thanks for letting me know about the darts, etc. The 911 sign is there but was unfortunately covered in snow. Look forward to having you stay again it the future.

Super Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and extended family had a wonderful time at the chalet. This was our second Family Day week getaway at the property, and it was equally great the second time around! We arrived to a clean and tidy place, the driveway freshly plowed from the previous days' snowfall. There were no issues whatsoever during our stay, the amenities are all there, and there is no lack of things to do - even in the middle of the coldest winter in recent history!

We look forward to returning next year...

Beautiful Chalet

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that I have rented this chalet with a group of my friends for my winter birthday excursion. Every year it blows our minds how beautiful the chalet is. Everything is pristine and beautiful! The renter also makes the experience enjoyable by providing ample documentation about all of the amenities in the house hold as well as being available for questions or helpful advice. He even helped us dig out our cars this winter after a snow storm! I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a chalet that has a variety of activities and looking for a beautiful landscape as well. Definitely a lot of fun had by everyone who attended this weekend and have heard nothing but good things about this chalet from everyone.

Wonderful Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home was able to accommodate our large family gathering of 15 over the holiday break. It is actually much more beautiful and spacious than what it appears on-line. The floor to ceiling windows throughout the main floor gave us a winter wonderland feel as we got 40 cm. snow over 2 days. Quite the view!! Thank you Will for your timely snow removal service! The spacious kitchen, double oven, and large island with seating made meal prep and dining very easy for such a large group. Easy access to dry firewood for the wood fireplace was very convenient. The recreational basement was again larger than expected and was a real bonus. The only suggestion to improve this area (by the guys) would be a functioning TV to view sports while enjoying the games.

Thank you Will for your timely communication during the process from start to finish. We will definitely recommend to friends and would love to go back.

A Perfect Celebration

  • 5 of 5

A group of buddies from all over Southwestern Ontario gathered for a weekend at the Muskoka Chalet to celebrate my brother’s upcoming wedding. I really cannot say enough good things about this place. The renter Will made the entire process from start to finish very easy and even offered a quick tour of the chalet upon our arrival. I liked how Will reassured us that we could call with any questions we had throughout the weekend. The chalet has a true feeling of peaceful seclusion even though you are only minutes away from town. Upon entering the chalet you are immediately struck by the openness and the picturesque view of the land, trees, and skyline all around you. The chalet itself is beautiful from top to bottom and is even bigger than it appears in the photographs. The entire layout and recreational basement allows for easy socializing and entertainment, the large kitchen with its many appliances enabled easy cooking even for a group of 12 hungry men, and the comfortable family room with a large TV and surround sound was perfect for watching the hockey game on Saturday night. Although it was the start of winter we still got good use out of the spacious patio, BBQ, and outdoor fire pit. We even managed to go on a very interesting and highly-recommended tour of the 3rd largest craft brewery in Ontario – the Muskoka Brewery, which is only about 15 minutes from the chalet. I imagine that this chalet would be perfect for any occasions, whether it be a family reunion or even a couple’s getaway, at any time of year. We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend and definitely will be going back.
