A winter wonderland! From every window, the white snow will surround you and amaze you. Miles and miles of vistas of quiet, bright snow will make you understand how lucky we are to enjoy the north. 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 front dock has 4 comfy lounge chairs, 2 comfy couches and Muskoka chairs….perfect for watching the loons go by, enjoying afternoon cocktails and more! Jump into the beautiful Lake Muskoka’s pristine water to cool down or to lounge in floating chairs. There are 2 kayaks to enjoy too

The upper patio is just steps outside with a long table for 10 overlooking the beautiful lake. The mid patio has a fire pit, perfect for roasting marshmallows and warming everyone up on a cool night. 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 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 Muskoka

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!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

A great first impression, long before arrival at this lovely property, due to the superb, prompt, caring communication with the property owner. The hospitality and warmth evident from those communications, together with the superb setting, gorgeous sunsets, and the cottage set our expectations very high.

Such expectations were, nonetheless, handily exceeded during our stay. A truly beautiful home, thoughtfully designed and appointed.

A most beautiful location for a memorable 2 weeks spent with adult children and young grandchildren. Loved it.

Top Shelf Property on Lake Muskoka

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic, bright, modern and well appointed home right on the lake with two docks and the most comfortable hammock I have ever been in. Its quiet and private but a short boat ride or car ride to whatever you need. The property has a great BBQ and fire pit and a fantastic Sonos system for accessing your favorive music right off your phone the moment you walk in the door. The home is clean and well stocked with everything you need for a great stay. We will be back again.

Can't wait to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this cottage for our "babymoon" last year and loved it, so we had to come again. This time we stayed with three couples and three young children. It was, once again, amazing. The cottage is huge and has everything you could possibly need. The layout is superb with five spacious bedrooms upstairs and an open-concept main floor that has a 180-degree view of the lake. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, and the owners have thought of everything. For example, they have an iPad set up ready to stream your favourite music, multiple floating chairs for the lake, portable music speakers for the dock, two dishwashers, and every kitchen appliance you could dream of. Ann is a pleasure to deal with and answered the few questions we had in a very timely manner. My wife and I are already trying to narrow down dates for our next stay!

We have rented many other properties. This property is MAGIC.

There were 6 of us, and we had the absolute most enjoyable, memorable time of our life. My daughter and her boyfriend, got engaged a couple of days

after, our stay ended. Perhaps, the sunsets.Say no more.l

The description, or the pictures, on the listing, does not do the property justice. This property is spectacular. Beyond spectacular

Ann's property is absolutely meticulously kept.

Attention is paid to every detail. The cottage should be in "Home Beautiful"

The interior design, is the best, I have ever seen for a cottage. I believe, every single bedroom has a lakefront view with a terrace.

The master bedroom, floor to ceiling windows, Within feet of the windows are large trees,. I could see the lake, yet felt like I was engulfed in the middle of

a forest.

Such choice, you can dine inside formally with white dishes or you can dine outside under the umbrella

There are more docks than one could image. The docks are all furnished with the most comfortable chaises and chairs. Such peace.

If you need to do business on the dock, excellent wifi. Who would think?

The landscaping on the property is absolutely breath-taking.

It is a very short walk to the docks.

Ann, the owner, is a gem. Funny, accommodating to all needs, and just lovely to deal with. She truly made us feel at home.

Simply the best.

We will be back..

Amazing winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing long weekend away in muskoka. the property is beautiful and the home has every amenity you could need - the kitchen is fully stocked with tools to make anything you could want. Despite the -20 degree weather outside, it was very warm and comfortable with a lovely fireplace. It was extremely quiet at night and the morning views from the floor to ceiling windows can't be beat! A highlight was the fog over Stephens Bay - beautiful!! We had the unfortunate experience of a flat tire on our way back home, but a lovely Bracebridge local stopped to help and we were on our way again (this should have been our cue to just stay at the cottage forever).

Fantastic place to relax, enjoy, in style.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in late October from overseas with great expectations, which the fotos and reviews had raised in us.

Once you actually see the place, the setting, the architecture, the waterfront and the lake, we can only say that our expectations were met and exceeded in all categories.

Feel like boating - there are 3 marinas close by to rent a boat and the owner has a slip available for you.

Feel like cooking - enjoy the outstanding kitchen and everything you can think of is supplied.

Want to BBQ - just fire up the giant Weber.

Feel like reading or relaxing, grab an armchair next to the fireplace.

The place was immaculate and yet you felt comfortable and welcome.

The owner provided us with lists of things to do and recommendations for dinner, of which we could only tick off a few, simply because we didn't feel like leaving.

2 fireplaces, 2 docks, laundry facilities, fascinating sunsets.

We will be sure to come back.
