Guest Access

To make your arrival to the Muskoka cottage easy, we provide a unique guest entry keypad lock code so that you can arrive at the vacation rental according to your schedule, any time after 5:00 pm on check-in day.

***Winter bookings: Ontario winters can be harsh.  Please note that the driveway & front steps of the Muskoka cottage are plowed. All roads from the highway to the lakefront driveway are regularly plowed by the Huntsville municipality or local snow removal services and the Muskoka cottage is only 5-10 min off the main road – a key consideration when booking your winter cottage stay. Even though the stairs that lead down to the Muskoka cottage as well as some of the wooden decks are regularly maintained, please be careful as they may be slippery. In fact, be careful anywhere on the property as the constant freeze/thaw cycles can hide ice under snow.

What a treat it was to stay at Yana’s stunning cottage!
We were there for three nights with my wife, parents and brothers. It’s such a peaceful and beautiful cottage that’s right on the waterfront - it really can’t be beat!
The listing is EXACTLY like the photos, there’s something for everyone to do, and we all felt right at home.
Thank you, Yana! We will be making your cottage an annual escape!

Kamal, Mississauga, Canada

It rained almost the whole week while we were at Yana’s. However we still had a great time. There were 8 of us. The place is very spacious and has two recreational levels. We played snooker, ping pong; used SUP, kayak, and jacuzzi. The pillows in the smaller bedrooms were very thin. You may need to bring your own. Also Kleenex are not provided. If you don’t plan to leave the cottage during your stay, bring some. Other than that, we enjoyed the cottage very much.


Aimie, Toronto, Canada

This cottage was absolutely amazing!!! It’s as exactly as stated in the description. Pictures don’t do it justice! There is something in every inch to enjoy in any given weather. The lake is very clean and the dock area was very nice to sit and relax or enjoy the water toys. The fire pit area is lovely even though there was a fire ban. The hot tub is huge and kept clean. The cottage is decorated very tastefully and was extremely comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans etc. We loved our stay and will return one day! Yana is an amazing hostess and very accommodating.


Laura, Toronto, Canada

We had a wonderful holiday, the cottage was beautiful and had everything we could ask for. Would very highly recommend. The hosts were very responsive. Thank you for allowing us the use of your lovely cottage.


Joanne, Toronto, Canada

Our stay at the cottage went fantastic. The location was super easy to get to, checkin was a breeze, and the games room and hot tub were great to have on the chillier days that we were there. This was one of the few times I've stayed somewhere and I felt that the photos didn't do it justice. The cottage is spacious, the furniture is comfortable, and the amenities were perfect.


Yusuf, Toronto, Canada

Beautiful , spacious cottage! Lots of activities to keep any age occupied. Yana and the property manager were very helpful and easy to reach. We would love to go back in the summer months.


Ashlee, Ottawa, Canada

Yana's place is beautiful. It's a terrific location, quiet, superb outdoor space, big common areas with plenty of activities!


Rob, Canada

What a beautiful spot! The photos don’t do it justice. It was spotless, decorated stunningly and you can’t beat the view. Yana was a great host and answered any questions I had promptly. We had the best stay and can’t wait to book it again.


Jillian, Toronto, Canada

Cottage was gorgeous!!! Pictures just don't do the justice! It's very spacious, very modern, and has everything you need for perfect stay. Will be renting again!!
And have to add, that the owner Yana is incredible. Communication was very easy and quick. She even left us a bottle of champagne, which was very sweet! Thank you!!!

Viktoriya, Toronto, Canada

This cottage is absolutely gorgeous and our stay was perfect. Close to snowmobiling and tobogganing, as well as a quick drive into town. Our group of 9 loved the outdoor fire pit, the hot tub and the games room. The cottage was very clean, stylish and even better than the pictures. There was a nice bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival, and Yana was wonderful to deal with. Thanks again!


Erin, Grimsby, Canada

The pictures do not properly captivate just how stunning this property is! The cottage offered so much space and fun activities. Whether we were outdoors or in, we constantly felt entertained and amazed. This property was also very well maintained, in and out. Excellent communication with the host and quite honestly we look forward to making this an annual trip. Thank you!


Andrew, Brantford, Canada

Absolutely stunning property! It’s everything you could want from a cottage getaway and more. Yana is an incredibly thoughtful host. She did everything to make sure that my stay was perfect!


Magdalena, Mississauga, Canada

This Lake Vernon rental property is a dream Muskoka getaway.
The multi-level cottage is spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. The main floor provides a fantastic zone for cooking, eating and watching tv. The extensive games room was an excellent space for us to utilize in the evenings and on rainy days.
Outdoors the views are absolutely stunning, there are multiple seating areas where it is quiet and peaceful. The hot tub is the perfect way to lean into vacation mode and relax to the fullest.
The owner, Yana, is a delight to communicate and work with. She is quick to respond to all inquiries, accommodating and makes the rental process easy from beginning to end.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time on the property both inside the cottage and outside by the firepit or down on the dock. The lake is quiet and still, the water is clean and crisp. There are neighbours close by but the property feels very private. We fully intend to return in the future to make use of this cottage country utopia.


Courtney, Canada

Amazing property! Has everything you need and ready to go, besides bringing your own food. It has tons of room with quiet neighbours on a beautiful lake.

Setting is nice. Close to Huntsville to get food and beverages.


Jeremy, Canada

We couldn't have asked for a better week at a cottage! From the first moments we arrived we had everything we needed and it was beyond our expectations! The pictures do not do it justice, you have to see it to believe it. There were plenty of indoor and outdoor activities, a large open kitchen with everything we could need stocked in it. There were plenty of places to relax and make memories. We used this space as a remote working space and it worked perfectly! 10/10 we would rent this again!


Jen, Canada

Magnificent property! A beautiful cottage with a split level layout made it convenient to go from one space to another. The spacious kitchen allowed several of us to cook and prep at the same time. The bedrooms were clean and cozy. Contemporary shower systems in all bathrooms. The dock has spectacular views of Lake Vernon. This luxurious cottage has all the amenities you would expect - this kept us fully entertained both indoors and outdoors. The location is near Huntsville so it was a short drive to Walmart to pickup a few items we forgot to pack. It should be noted though, that there were quite a number of steps leading from the driveway down to the cottage and some steep steps going down to the dock. This really wasn't an issue for our group but something to consider if we want to bring older adults and young children next time. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and answered all our questions promptly. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend.


Henry, Canada

This multi-level cottage is beautiful, and was extremely clean and well organized. The bedrooms were great, and everyone slept well. We were seven adults and there was room to spare, and a nice bunkie (also with gorgeous views of the lake). The kitchen was very well equipped, and a dream to cook in. The outside bbq is also in great condition and having an extra propane tank, is a nice touch. Everything about this cottage is top notch, and shows a lot of care. The game room was fun on our one rainy day, and in the evenings!

The views from all the decks, the dock, and the fire pit are stunning. The lake was great for swimming, and the water toys just added to our general enjoyment. The owners were extremely responsive to any questions, and answered quickly. I agree with the above reviewer that the pictures don't do it justice. We will definitely be back.


Nancy, Canada

This beautiful cottage is tastefully decorated, very spacious and well stocked with amenities. The kitchen was easy to cook in and the dining room fits many people around the dining room table. The beds were comfortable and had high quality linens. There was a very fun games room(s) in the lower levels with a pool table, ping pong, foozeball and video games and more seating. The hot tub was large and had great views of the property and lake.
The fun continued down to the dock with plenty of seating and water activities.
Everything was very clean and well maintained.


Jen, Canada

This rental will not disappoint! The pictures do not do it justice! It was simply perfect. We enjoyed the spacious property and beautiful lake. Quick response from renter with inquiries and details of the rental. We would love to to return!
