ADDRESS: Peninsula Road, Port Carling

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Lake Muskoka

AGENT: Richard Scully, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage

PRICE: $8,495,000

THE PLACE: This giant log cabin overlooking Lake Muskoka proves that the classic cottage can be both rustic and luxurious.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: It’s really, really big. The main house is a behemoth—7,007 square feet—and includes a wine cellar, a gourmet kitchen and enough space for the whole family to spend the night (five bedrooms and five bathrooms).

BIG SELLING POINT: Sure, this cottage is huge; but it’s also homely. The B.C. cedar logs inspire both a sense of awe and a sense of warmth, while the interior space feels grand without being overwhelming.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The master bedroom is bold and beautiful—but it also features an open-concept bathroom. Not everybody wants everything in plain sight.
