Traveling with kids

What can my teenagers do?

This house is a perfect set up for older kids who want their own space. We have a loft with a TV that a gaming console can be attached to. We also have bean bag chairs to make the experience a little more cool. We have many board games as well. Suggestion: If you have teens, have them bring headphones that are wireless. It will really help with gaming noises.

Sustainable packing to save you money! Myth vs Reality

Be sustainable.. rethink your packing ;) Myth We better bring bottled water. Who knows where the water is coming from? Reality Save buying single use water bottles, and bring along your reusable water container. Our water is municipally sourced and we also have a filter in the fridge for your drinking water. Myth We better bring disposable plates and cups. Reality We have service for at least 8 for plates, bowls, cutlery, mugs, glasses, serving dishes etc. Myth We should get small packaging. Reality Bring regular size , we have plenty of food storage in the fridge, freezer and cupboards.

Collecting Food Waste - It measures up!

We do collect food waste here and you will find a container on the counter in the kitchen. Each country and region has their own way to collect food waste, but here in Muskoka, the rule is simple. If it can go in your mouth, it can go in food waste. Meat, veggies, trimmings, fat, dairy, cereal, crumbs, you name it, it goes in there. There are plenty of extra compostable bags below the sink when you fill the bin. Just tie it up and take it to the green bin in the garage, and start to fill up again. As of December 1, 2022, we are at 935 pounds of food waste that we have diverted!
