We are a young family looking to share our cottage memories with others. We have been blessed to grow up in Muskoka with the lakes and wildlife in our backyard. Now we want to share our space with others so they too can enjoy the Muskoka area!

Our family of three (my husband, our 10.5 month old and I) had a lovely stay at the lookout! The cottage was clean, organized, bright and beautiful. It was the perfect open concept space to let our little mover and shaker crawl around and not get into too much trouble as it is very baby friendly! It was really handy to have a high chair there, plugs in the electrical outlets, and new books and toys for her to play with. The location is just beautiful. So quiet. Surrounded by trees from every angle. My husband grew up going to cottages, fishing, etc and he said he has never been on such a quiet lake. He did a lot of fishing in the canoe and off the dock. We just loved it. Unfortunately it was too cold to swim in the lake, but we figure that gives us a reason to go back in the future :). We ventured into Huntsville twice and enjoyed lunch and coffees at the Butcher's Daughter (and purchased some of their ready made food - so good!). Highly recommend it! The cottage is really well equipped for a family (especially with young children) and I would happily return and recommend to friends and family :D
Trisha was great to book with and providing info leading up to our stay. The owner, Jen, who lives next door was very friendly and accommodating - a great pleasure to meet.
The cottage itself was nice, and had everything we needed. The area is beautiful with a great dock out on the water. The lake is quiet and picturesque.
Loved the whole experience and would definitely go back.
We felt very welcome by our host Trisha at The Lookout. The listing was very accurate and indeed the facility very pleasantly exceeded our expectations. There were virtually no significant issues or problems. Trisha was very accommodating to our request for change in arrival time and in the number of guests. The setting in the beautiful Muskoka area of Northern Ontario was peaceful, pastoral, and very restful - we loved it. A great time for our family—and a great staging area for one of us participate in the Subaru Ironman 70.3 mile triathlon at nearby Huntsville and Deerhurst Resort. Highly recommended and we would go there again if the opportunity arises!
Trisha's cottage is situated on a lovely, small, quiet lake within close driving distance to downtown Huntsville. We had a great stay at the cottage - it was clean, well equipped and cozy. And quiet! Perfect for a low key getaway.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful Cottage. It is very clean and perfect for families. We just loved the quiet lake, the dock with the Muskoka Chair and the canoe. Trish and her family are extremely friendly and helpful. Our boys were so happy to either have a soccer goal! Thank you so much!
The Waterhouse was exactly what we needed for the perfect relaxing long weekend. The lake is beautiful and peaceful, perfect for canoeing and swimming. The cottage is spacious, clean & truly everything we wanted. The hosts are amazing & helpful, you will not regret choosing this cottage. We hope to return in the fall, thanks to Trish and Jen for everything :)
Had a wonderfully relaxing stay at the Lookout! The cottage is wonderfully cozy, clean and very well equipped. Everything we needed was there - even a crib and high chair for our little guy. Our children loved the rolling grass and sandy wade-in area and by the end of the week were all jumping off the dock with glee. And the lake is beautiful, quiet and serene - perfect for lazy afternoon canoe rides (highly recommended). A perfect muskoka getaway. Thank you for a great week!
Oui très bon accueil de notre hôte... Bouteille de vin à l'arrivée , guides et jeux pour enfants... La maison est même mieux qu'en description. On s'y sent bien tout de suite. L'endroit est bien isolé et c'est ce qui nous plaisait. En même temps, pas trop loin de la première ville...
Trish and family were excellent hosts - she responded to every question quickly and really cared to ensure everything was perfect. The cottage is perfect. Very clean. Perfect for family. The lake is quiet. The dock was a great view and the Muskoka chairs on the dock were the perfect way to start your day. We would highly recommend considering the Lookout!
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.
We can vouch for both Trish and the cottage! We stayed there over Family Day weekend and had a fabulous winter experience. If you love winter and want some real snow, it's time to hit this cottage. Snowshoe out your front door around the lake, or enjoy a skate!
We have also been there in the summer, and if you're looking for a quiet getaway, this is ideal. The cottage is well-kept and offers a great view of the lake. You'll get a quiet evening paddle and a fire-lit star-gaze with all the comforts of home.
Want a family getaway without big resort culture and noisy neighbours? Looking for a place that's road-accessible where you'll likely have the lake all to yourself? You've found it.
