Why Cathy chose Muskoka

We love Huntsville and the surrounding area. There is so much to do and see and it is so beautiful in all four seasons. We live in the country and use this residence ourselves as our in town cottage so we felt more people would also enjoy this experience.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy being able to park your vehicle in our spacious driveway and walk to everything Huntsville has to offer.

We are a member of the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce and will be able to keep you informed of all current activities.

Perfect stay and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I don't hesitate to give 5 star to this cottage. This cottage has everything we needed to stay for about 5 days. It has washer and dryer even with detergent, Keurig coffee machine even with coffee and milk, lot of movies, books, games and kids' toys, dish washer with detergent, patio furniture, and many other things that I can not mention them all here. The location of this cottage is perfect just a stone-throw distance almost everywhere including grocery, Timmys, Mcdonalds, a lot of quality pubs and restaurants, Musloka Heritage Place, Lions lookout, Arrowhead Provincial Park, beaches, Muskoka Roastary Coffee, Sugarbush Hill Maple Farm and many other place to look around. If I have another chance to have a vacation around Huntsville, I would like to come back. I would like to recommend this cottage if you are planning to have vacation around Huntsville.

Fairy Mill Guest House

  • 5 of 5

An amazing stay at the Fairy Mill Guest house. It is an excellent location located in the downtown core. We felt like we were staying at home with the games and books, coffee and even milk in the fridge when we arrived! The decor is beautiful, well maintained clean and made us feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend this house for your next stay in Huntsville.

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate to have stayed in this beautifully kept home on several occasions. Each and ever time Cathy has made sure we had a wonderful stay. From the lovely furnishings, cozy fireplace and a kitchen stocked with all the basics, we have always thought of Fairymill as our home away from home. I have no reservations recommending Fairmill as the perfect place to stay. Close to shopping and amenities yet there is a feeling of being in a quiet retreat. We will certainly be back to stay in the future.

Seamless Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this perfect house. We stayed here while in town for a wedding. The house was very clean and they had thought of everything including cold water in the fridge, milk, USB charger, instructions for the remotes, many DVDs, hair dryer, iron and board, washer / dryer, dishwasher, and so on... Was so nice and quiet to sleep. Thanks for the relaxing stay.

Winter Weekend Getaway House

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house located downtown Huntsville and close to everything. A short walk to the downtown strip, shopping and restaurants. The kitchen worked perfectly for the nights we stayed in yet the close restaurants allowed us the choice to go out. Very clean, well maintained and had all of the amenities we could ask for. Would highly recommend this if you are looking for a great place to stay. We'll definitely be planning another stay in the future.
