About Will Cordingley


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 Muskoka

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

Weekend Getaway in Muskoka for Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us rented this beautiful cottage for a weekend getaway along with going to our friend's wedding in Muskoka. The cottage is very large, spacious and relaxing. It's perfect for a large group. The views are wonderful and we were able to go on a few walks, with the colours changing in Fall, it was so nice. This cottage pretty much has everything you need, I actually wish we had more time to spend at the cottage. Enjoyed our time immensely. Thank you for letting us stay here!

The Favero Family

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an amazing venue for a family get together, this is perfect. We celebrated my parents 60th anniversary and had 14 family members stay at this beautiful chalet over the labour day weekend. There was plenty of space inside and out. Everyone had an incredible weekend. It will be a weekend my family will treasure and remember for a very long time.Thanks too to Bob McMaster for catering two excellent meals. The experience was more than we could have hoped for. Carla & Neil 😄

A beautiful property close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We thought this place was amazing - plenty of space on the decks, living room and kitchen to relax and socialize. Plus a large basement rec room meant that the kids had a place to claim as their own. The property is really private and an easy drive or bike ride (as I did a few times) into Bracebridge. We did so many things while here: rented canoes at LivOutside, played mini golf, spent a day at the wonderful Santa's Village, went to Kirby Beach (nice!), had campfires, went on a Muskoka Brewery tour, and watched a pro waterski show. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a Muskoka getaway.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at the chalet! The place is BEAUTIFUL (better than the pictures)! Will was easy to communicate with and made sure we had a very comfortable stay. The patio, games room, bonfire site, everything was a BIG hit with my family ranging in age from 2 to nearly 70 (including some fussy teenagers)! Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed our experience thoroughly!

Wedding Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at Muskoka. We had been looking for a place to stay at for 15 people for our sons wedding in Bracebridge. Will was accommodating in regards to us arriving and leaving on a Monday and made sure we had enough room for everyone. We had a couple of days before the wedding to enjoy a beautiful peaceful environment and even with so many people we never felt crowded. We enjoyed the games room downstairs and the various lounging areas both inside and out. The wedding photographer loved the house and took pictures of the groom and groomsmen before the ceremony. We are looking forward to visiting again maybe in the fall or winter. We also have suggested this place for friends who have a child in a wheelchair as the main level is roomy enough (just have to get a ramp for the steps onto the porch)
