This home IS rustic.... I mean seriously, it is over 100 years old. And I feel Catherine has imbued some...

Spent a wonderful fall weekend here. Beautiful rooms with great furnishings. Close to walking trails. Many nights spent by the fire pit and indoors at the fireplace. Cathy was a gracious host. Can’t wait to come back

About the neighbourhood
This cottage is located in stunning Milford Bay. It backs onto Huckleberry rock hiking trails with amazing views of the lakes and beautiful sunsets. It was voted #2 spot in Ontario to view the fall colors last year.
Milford Manor a very casual golf course is right across the road. It is a 9 hole course and there is no need to make a reservation.
Lake Muskoka Baycliffe Park beach is a 5 minute walk away. It is shallow, sandy and wonderful for children. There is a long dock for fishing.
Grab a sandwich or a brownie at Milford bay cafe on the corner of Beaumauris and 118.
