The Place: A small island in Lake Muskoka with a four-bedroom cottage, a bunkie and a boathouse.

Bragging Rights: Watch eyes widen as you airily drop the phrase “private island” into conversations about weekend plans.

Big Selling Point: The property has an outdoor deck for every activity.

The bunkie’s wraparound veranda is best suited for sundowner cocktails and quiet contemplation.

Possible Deal Breaker: Though the island only a two-minute journey from the landing, you need a boat to get there.
