Cottage of the Week: $2.6 million for a Georgian Bay Township log house with a tiki bar and its own waterfall

Location: Township of Georgian Bay, Muskoka Agents: Bryan Coxworth, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada Price: $2,599,000 Size: 2,642 square feet Bedrooms: 3 Bathrooms: 3

The place
A three-bedroom, three-bathroom winterized log house right on Go Home Lake. The house is accessible only by boat—there’s a marina nearby—and is surrounded by 1.5 acres of dense greenery.
The history
The owners began construction of this place in 2017, importing many materials from the States and dropping roughly $1.7 million in the process. Since 2021, they’ve used the home as their primary residence. Now, the owners are moving to Western Canada to be closer to their kids, so they’ve put the cottage on the market for the first time.
