The sunsets are spectacular, setting directly in front of the 90 feet of windows, with warm glows in every single room of the cottage.

Trek through the beautiful white snow through trees and nature to really embrace what winter has to offer. Whether using snow shoes to be adventurous or walking on the property or country road….a great way to work off the winter calories! Snowmobiling and cross country ski trails within minutes too.

After a wonderful day outdoors, curl up by the wood fireplace with a cup of hot apple cider or mulled wine, read a book or catch up with loved ones. There are plenty of games too to play in the TV room or the other sitting area. The TV room has an additional fireplace; this one is a modern gas fire.

The lookout point has seating for 8 in a glass enclosed area, for cooler weather…..and is famous for watching the incredible sunsets!

There is a hammock among the trees for a quiet nap, a hanging chair to read in, a bench on the granite rock to sit for 2, a smoker BBQ on the “Man Terrace”, a gas BBQ at the side….there are intimate spaces and gathering spaces, depending on what you want to do.

FALL AND SPRING TIME

Fall colours abound from end of September to middle October....fresh air and crisp nights...you will sleep like a baby! The snow retreats usually in April, and the birds are a delight to hear first thing in the morning. Great time to cycle and relax, kayak and walk.

About modern muskoka

I grew up in Ottawa, went to school in London Ontario and now live in Toronto with my husband and 2 teenage children. We all love to travel and love old and new architectural wonders. Food though, just might be the centre of my universe!

modern muskoka purchased this chalet in 2013

Why modern muskoka chose Bracebridge

We built this "little piece of heaven" in 2013, with care and love. We think is the nicest piece of land in all of Muskoka....but then again we are biased!

This is our dream cottage and I hope you will enjoy it and respect it as we do.

What makes this chalet unique

The cottage, or lake house, is all windows. so it doesn't matter what kind of weather is thrown your way as it is always so beautiful to look out at nature. Even thunderstroms are a marvel! A white carpet of snow in the peaceful winter while the fire is crackling in the cottage stove, will energize you. The fall colours are a amazing of course with the 270 degree view! In the spring, the days are long, the plants are popping up everywhere and the long winter is but a dream when the sun is pouring into the glass cottage. It is as close to perfect as you can get!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was delighted to be asked to write a review on "Modern Muskoka". It was one of the most idyllic stays ever. I have been to some amazing places in the world, and I honestly thought that it just doesn’t get any better than this. Everywhere you looked was windows and views. And the end of the days were polished off with fantastic sunsets. We would all make sure that we were watching the sky as the sun dropped and then left the pink sky behind. The beds were very comfortable too by the way. I would recommend this dreamy place for sure. All the best!

The best of Muskoka

  • 5 of 5

Ann's cottage is the best of the best. Every detail is inside and outside of the cottage is 100 stars.

Amazingly, every bedroom has a full patio door so you can step outside to the second floor balcony.

The kitchen has everything a chef would want. Two dishwashers, crepe maker, industrial stove and fridge etc

Ann is a hands on owner and is most attentive to ones needs. Plus, she is one call away and has always been available

The location is perfect because it is 10 or so minutes away from a major grocery store

This year was our second year and we definitely will be returning next year.

For our family our time at her cottage is treasured.

Beautiful modern cottage on lake muskoka, a winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We spent the New Year's weekend at the cottage with our four adult children and had a absolutely fabulous time. The cottage is beautifully designed, with one of the best fireplaces I have ever seen. The common areas are large and inviting at the same time. The white furniture and many sofa blankets made us feel that we were in a boutique hotel.

The large glass walls bring in the wonderful outside, with the trees, water and white snow.

Ann was a pleasure to deal with, and we had everything we needed. We went for walks in the area and visited the Muskoka beer brewery. We had a memorable family vacation and would definitely return. Thank you Ann for sharing your beautiful cottage with us.

A WHITE THANKSGIVING IN AN INCREDIBLE SETTING

  • 5 of 5

Living full time in Bermuda, my husband and I longed for a cold and snowy Thanksgiving vacation. After searching thru so many listings in Canada, we discovered this gem on Lake Muskoka Ontario. We have traveled all over the world and stayed in some unique and luxurious properties, but this private glass home far exceeded our recent vacations. The pictures were accurate and they depicted the home's beauty and design....which is a very trendy mix of contemporary and rustic. The glass walls seemed to drink in the nature all around us. Huge dining table, two wonderful cozy fireplaces, flat screen tv, sonos sound piped thru ceiling speakers, and a fully stocked chefs kitchen. A special treat was to wake up to a gentle snowfall on Thanksgiving morning, knowing we would have a beautiful holiday in a warm home with amazing views on this scenic lake, enjoying cooking football and wine! And as fervent travelers, it was great to fly all that way and have everything clean and in working order. Ann and Tom certainly take pride and great care of their "cottage," and we vacationers get to benefit from that.....stress free and quiet. The location was ideal in that it was tucked into the woods for long hikes, yet close to an adorable village named Bracebridge which reminded us of Lake Placid with all its craft stores, high end shoppes, and cozy restaurants. The people there are super friendly and helpful. Days trips were a breeze from the house, our favorite being a snowy drive thru the Algonquin Provencial Park. All in all, we loved the entire experience and especially coming back to this jewel on the lake. One place where we actually looked forward to going to bed under the stars and waking up in the trees.

One last question: is this place for sale? Wow, we wish it were ours!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Recently had the pleasure of staying at this property. It was truly a beautiful experience from the lake views to the tall pines surrounding the stunning cottage to the cottage itself. It was a great mix of modern amenities and design with all of the cottage charm. Plenty of space both inside and outside with a lot of privacy. The owner is amazing to deal with and we were lucky to have found this cottage online. We would definitely stay again in a heartbeat.

Modern = Lovely

  • 5 of 5

First of all we want to thank Ann for making our get away perfect. What an amazing "cottage"...really this home is not a cottage but a gorgeous modern home nestled on a private point of land facing Lake Muskoka. The windows are floor to ceiling and the views are incredible. Just stunningly beautiful especially with the fall colours. Close enough to town and shopping yet private and secluded tucked into the trees. The house was a joy to experience. Everything is designed and executed with quality and function as well as beauty in mind. Simple and elegant. Great electronics and the kitchen has everything you could ever need which I especially enjoyed being the foodie I am. It was only the two of us but we were happy to see that this house will work perfectly for our next family special gathering. 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, each beautifully appointed. The main master bedroom was just beautiful and high up in the trees which was a really neat feeling. Open your eyes in the morning and it is like you are looking out at a Group of Seven painting, just breathtaking. We can image the Summer fun with two docks, toys, hammock and multiple sitting areas, each with it's own character. The landscaping is gorgeous and very thoughtful in design. Oh and I must not forget to mention the fabulous BBQ and huge smoker. We highly recommend this property if you want to experience hi-end living in Muskoka. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you Ann.
