The Space

Year-round cottage on a small quiet lake in Muskoka
Check us out at (website hidden)

New for 2013: We have put in a beautiful woodstove for added coziness in the winter and we now have a paddle boat for warmer weather fun.

Our year-round cottage is on a small quiet lake 15 minutes to Huntsville and 30 minutes to Rosseau. This 2 bedroom+den (sleeps 6) furnished cottage on the water's edge is a perfect spot for Winter fun - cross country / Nordic skiing, snow shoeing and skating. We do our best to keep a cleared area on the lake for skating (weather permitting).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The Waterhouse was great! We were in the area (Huntsville is a 15 min drive) for the Ironman 70.3 triathlon. The cottage was clean and it had everything we needed. It was very chilly when we arrived so the wood fireplace came in handy! The lakefront is beautiful and we used the canoe on the quiet lake. If you are looking for a simple Muskoka-cottage experience then this is the perfect place.

  • This cottage is the real deal. The waterfront is spectacular, with deep forest across from the large, comfortable dock. A small sand beach leads to a gradually inclining lake-entry. There are toys and art materials for kids, and amazing grounds all around, for active games. A perfect Muskoka getaway.

  • What an amazing cottage on so many levels. I hope we can find the time to stay there again for longer in the next couple years.

  • Great stay at Trisha's cottage. Everything was clean, well maintained, and exactly as advertised. Had some bad luck with mosquitoes (bring some bug spray), but nothing that prevented my group from having a good time. Would certainly recommend.

  • The Cottage is situated on a quiet and beautiful lake just outside of Alconquin National Park and makes for a beautiful weekend get away. The location is stunning and the cottage a wonderful retreat. The roaring fire was already lit upon our arrival- which made from a wonderful welcome.

  • We had a great weekend at Trisha's cottage. The cottage was perfect for our group of 6 adults and had everything we needed, from a fully functional kitchen to 3 big bedrooms! Trisha and her husband were great hosts and were available to answer any questions we had. We would definitely visit again and would recommend it to others as well.

  • Our weekend stay at this cottage was really enjoyable. The views to the snowy lake and the warm wood stove were ideal for the wintery days.

    The cottage was spacious enough for our whole family and great for cooking and enjoying meals. A well equipped kitchen and bedrooms meant we didn't have to come up with a car full of gear. Host and family were very welcoming and helpful. I would highly recommend a stay at this cottage for anyone.

    February 2013
  • We had a wonderful two days and nights at Trisha's cottage, including a snowy new years eve. It was incredibly cozy, with beautiful lake views. The cottage had everything we could need, from board games to a large kitchen perfect for preparing a big new years dinner.

    January 2013
