Welcome to Sunning Hill!

A beautiful escape right in the heart of Ontario's Muskoka region. We are less than two hours from Toronto, but when you arrive at our island, you'll be worlds away from the city bustle.

The space

The property features two buildings; the main cottage and the boathouse. The main cottage has three bedrooms and one washroom, featuring a private entrance for the master bedroom.

Cozy and comfortable, the kitchen and living area will provide anything you might need for a relaxing retreat with friends or family.

The boathouse is right on the water, featuring a mini-bar and full-size fridge and freezer.

Guest access

Sitting on two-acres of land and overlooking gorgeous 6-Mile Lake, we encourage our guests to get outside and enjoy the sounds of loon calls from the end of the dock.

For summer 2017, we are accepting week-long (7 day) bookings only from June 6th through Labour Day weekend (Sept 5th). Weekend and week day rentals (min 2 nights) will be available in Spring and Fall.

We have canoes on site and can arrange for up to three kayaks to be available as well. We have a ping pong table in the bunky and loads of board games.

Please bring your own towels and linens. If you need an exception made to this rule, please let us know and we can discuss.

Please note: our check-in time is between 2pm and 7pm. In May and June, any check-ins after 7pm will cost $40.00 as we need to hire a ride for your group.

Interaction with guests

Once you confirm your booking, we will send you our complete Cottage Guide, outlining all the amenities and details of the cottage itself.

We will meet you at the government landing upon arrival, bring you to the cottage and give you a tour of the property. Please refer above to the check-in policy.

Throughout your stay, we are available by phone and text. Neil's parents, Paul and Robbie, live across the bay year-round. Should you need anything at all, they will also be able to help out.

Other things to note

Our cottage has clean drinking water - no need to bring your own. There is a special faucet for drinking water in the kitchen next to the sink.

We do not charge our guests a cleaning fee. We ask that you leave the cottage the way you found it per the community rules. Cleaning supplies are provided and replenished between guests.

The cottage was exquisite. The scenery was mesmerizing. The island dogs who came to the cottage made the trip even better. Everything was picture perfect. Amazing getaway.

The cottage was exactly as we had hoped...comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. We had a great time swimming, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding (with boards rented and brought over to the island). Neil was a fantastic host--prompt with answering questions and available for anything we needed.

this place is just the perfect one. the cottage is the one everyone has in mind if dreaming of spending some time in a "cabin by a lake in Canada". it just has it all. not fancy or shiny, but just rustic enough to feel the humanity of the place, furnished enough to feel super comfy, and located in such a peaceful place... squirrels, ducks, we had friends. Grrrreat.

Neil and Andrea's cottage is wonderful. We just got back from 4 relaxing nights at 6 mile. My husband, 2.5 yr old son and I had such a great time. Neil was a wonderful host and his communication was great. The cottage was cozy and the kitchen was stocked with everything you would ever need. The master bedroom had an awesome view of the lake. The dock was sunny all day and was perfect for swimming. We hiked around the island and our son had a blast canoeing around the lake. I highly suggest staying here. You can't go wrong. Neil made us feel right at home.

Definitely stay here. This was a wonderful cottage experience complete with warmth, quiet, beautiful views of the water, BBQ, and canoeing and swimming in the bay. The place was easy to find, Neil's communication was great, and there were no problems at all. Thanks Neil!

Wonderful place. Loved our stay. Would definitely book again. It's not a private island but feels very set apart from the neighbors. Awesome amenities like the sauna and wood burning stove made the weekend a real nice relaxation fest.

My husband and I, our daughter and her boyfriend, spent a week at Neil's cottage on Six Mile Lake. Neil was extremely helpful in planning our vacation and settling in once we arrived--he and Andrea even gave us a boat tour of the lake before setting out for their home in the city. We loved the private location and the great view from our porch and dock; the water was perfect for swimming and kayaking; and the kitchen was set up for serious cooking. Thanks for the great stories about winter on the lake. We would so love to come back after the lake has frozen over!
