Address: 1476 Stephens Bay Road
Neighbourhood: Bracebridge, Ontario
Agent: Max Hahne, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Brokerage, Port Carling
Price: $4,950,000

The Place: A six-bedroom, six-washroom, modern-but-homey estate on Lake Muskoka.

Bragging Rights: Few home gyms could beat the view from this cottage’s oversized workout room, which comes complete with a walk-out deck for the post-exercise cool down.

Big Selling Point: This cottage seamlessly blends interior and exterior space. The master washroom, for instance, looks like it was carved into the surrounding rocks. There are also two exterior fireplaces, rough-hewn wood throughout (but especially in the kitchen) and rooms of floor-to-ceiling windows to make the best of the wide lakeside vista.

Possible Deal Breaker: We’re struggling to think of one. Maybe being five million dollars poorer would be a drawback, but anyone who’d bid on this place would probably be able to afford it.
