Cottage of the Week: $8,000 a week for a log cabin with style on Manitouwabing Lake

Cottage of the Week: $8,000 a week for a log cabin with style on Manitouwabing Lake
At 4,750 square feet, the log home on Lake Manitouwabing sleeps up to 14 people. The drive from Toronto takes about two-and-a-half hours

ADDRESS: Off Highway 124 at Manitouwabing Lake

NEIGHBOURHOOD: McKellar, Muskoka

AGENT: Available through rentourcottage.com

PRICE: $8,000 a week

THE PLACE: A two-acre property on Lake Manitouwabing with a huge log cabin, two boat docks, a sunbathing dock and an extra sleeping hut. 

BRAGGING RIGHTS: American furniture-maker H.J. Nick made the home’s distinctive front entrance out of a 200-year-old Cyprus cedar. The arched door is intricately etched with cottage-country fauna like moose, deer and bears, which makes it feel like you’re entering a grand woodland lodge.

BIG SELLING POINT: The two master bedrooms, each with its own king sized bed, ensuite bathroom and gas fireplace, will draw you in—but the clincher is that the rental comes with the use of the 14-foot Sylvan fishing boat.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Between the Thermador stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, the 60” television in the entertainment room and the air conditioning, nothing about this property feels like roughing it. If you’re looking for a rustic cottage experience, this isn’t it.

BY THE NUMBERS: • $8,000 per week • 4,750 square feet • 400 feet of waterfront • 14-foot Sylvan fishing boat • 6 bedrooms • 4 bathrooms • 4-person bunkie with washroom • 2 acres of land
