About Owner/ Manager

My name is Catharine Thompson. I am originally from Muskoka. I am a very busy mother of three wonderful children. I own a busy babysitting/nanny service in the area

Owner/ Manager purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Owner/ Manager chose Bracebridge

We purchased this property because we absolutely fell in love with it and the village it is nestled in. We have not regretted the purchase for one minute.

What makes this cottage unique

We loved that it is close to the town of Bracebridge and Port Carling. The people in the neighborhood are super friendly. It backs onto the incredibly amazing Huckleberry rock hiking trails.

It is also a super short walk to a beautiful lake Muskoka beach.

We love that it is across the road from a very affordable golf course.

The house itself is super cozy and made us feel like we were home from the moment we walked in the door.

Our family enjoyed this property immensely, with a nice quiet location that is only minutes away from a beach and hiking trails. The front porch, back deck and covered area in the back yard were favourite spots to relax and enjoy this beautiful setting! Owner was very accommodating and we would highly recommend this property to anyone!!

The property is located within the Muskoka Lakes District. Muskoka is one of the most beautiful areas in the world.

The property backs on to Huckleberry rock hiking trails where you can get an amazing view of the lakes from up high.

Muskoka is full of outdoor activities year round. I highly recommend the area in all seasons.
