The history

The home was built in 1998. The current owners purchased it in the early 2000s and added the boathouse. They’re moving on because their kids are older and the place doesn’t get used as much as it used to.

Big selling point

Most traditional log cabins can feel a little too cozy (i.e. tiny), but this one has enough space for the new owners to function as a pseudo hotel when their friends inevitably beg to come up for a weekend. Lake Vernon is a slightly farther drive than some of the more popular Muskoka lakes, but that means it’s also more peaceful and likely free of interruptions from water jet-packing neighbours.
