Cottage of the Week: $4.9 million for a 12-acre Muskoka compound with a deluxe boathouse
The Place: An enormous compound with a five-bedroom main cottage and a two-level, two-bedroom boathouse on Lake Muskoka.
Bragging Rights: The wood-accented library is a great place to pen your first novel—or, for those looking to do a little less thinking and a little more drinking, swirl brandy from the built-in bar.
Big Selling Point: The oversized Muskoka room with a fireplace is perfect for chilly nights.
Possible Deal Breaker: With a total of seven bedrooms (five in the main cottage and two in the boathouse) and seven bathrooms (six in the main cottage and one in the boathouse), there are no excuses for not having people up.

• 320 feet of waterfront
• 12+ acres
