Jayne’s Cottages, (www.jaynescottages.com), the vacation rental agency specialising in luxury summer cottage rentals in Canada’s beautiful Muskoka region, has big plans to introduce British families to the charms of spending time in Canada’s traditional ‘cottage country’, affectionately referred to as ‘The Hamptons of the North’.
Any property that sits on a lake is referred to as a ‘cottage’ by Canadians, despite the fact that many cottages are much larger than most British homes. Muskoka, Ontario’s traditional cottage country with its many beautiful lakes, is a two-hour drive north of Toronto, attracts many big-name celebrities including Cindy Crawford, Steven Spielberg and Justin Bieber. All who visit and spend time in Muskoka enjoy the relaxed pace of life, country living, water activities and stunning natural surroundings.
Muskoka is an area of Ontario that is situated at the southern tip of the Canadian Shield. Within its 782 square kilometres, there are as many as 80 lakes, including the three large lakes that perhaps best define the Muskoka experience, Lake Rosseau, Lake Joseph and Lake Muskoka. In spite of the popularity of summer homes in Muskoka, over 80 per cent of the land mass remains untouched.
Jayne’s Cottages manages over 100 unique properties through-out the lakes of Muskoka. The company’s goal is to help all guests make the most of their unique Muskoka experience and each property is beautifully presented, comes with a selection of watercraft perfect for exploring the lakes, and has been selected for its exemplary location.
For example, Havelock is a beautifully finished 5-bedroom cottage with a large ‘family wing’, outside lounge area and with 240” of prime south west facing shoreline. Havelock is in the heart of Muskoka and is within easy access of local attractions and local communities. The cottage sleeps up to 10 guests and costs from £7,676 for a week.
The White House on Lake Rosseau, is a 6-bedroom contemporary glass cottage built in 2015 that virtually floats on the lake. Only a few steps from the water, the property consists of the Main Glass Cottage, the Guest Bunkie, a 4 slip Boathouse and the Cabana Bar which sits on the end of the oversized dock with hot tub. The White House is a watersport lovers’ dream, and comes with all the best water toys for a true Muskoka experience, including wake skates, wake surf, wake boards, water skis, paddle boards, canoes and kayaks. The White House sleeps up to 16 and costs from £16,865 per week.
Bala Boathouse, is a traditional Canadian boathouse cottage that sits directly on Lake Muskoka and is just a ten-minute walk from Bala, a community in the heart of cottage country. This 3-bedroom cottage makes for a perfect peaceful get-away for canoeing, exploring or just enjoying the sound of the waves lapping against the dock. Bala Boathouse costs from £1,679 per week.
Alternatively, Wanderlust is a 7-bedroom modern luxury ‘cottage’ on Lake Muskoka. Featured in the Wall Street Journal in Sept 2016 as one of the most beautiful Muskoka cottages, Wanderlust has been stunningly designed to perfectly mix the modern with traditional cottage living. The cottage embodies the natural landscape of water, pine trees and rock. Spend your days enjoying all the activities of the lake, and relax in the evenings with star gazing and indulging in the ultimate comfort. Wanderlust sleeps up to 14 guests and costs from £24,520 per week.
