About Morley Sniderman

This has been our family cottage since 1989 and this year we expanded it from 800 square feet to 2000 and added an 800 square foot guest house and rustic cabin in the woods.

Morley Sniderman purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Morley Sniderman chose Muskoka

Log inside and out, antique hemlock floors, warm and inviting but the utmost in luxury. Pristine lake with amazing swimming and boating, and privacy galore. Doesn't get much better than this.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our weekend at Log Retreat on Whitefish Lake was just amazing. Spectacular kitchen, views to die for and a log home that you never want to leave. We went for long walks in the woods and the property seems to go on and on. Campfires by the lake, gorgeous sand beach, the whole family loved it.
