Island Living: Your Muskoka Retreat Awaits

Island Cottage in Muskoka

Dreaming of your own island getaway in the picturesque Muskoka region? Look no further! Our new project, the Island Cottage, is designed to make your island living dreams come true.

You’ll feel a deep connection to the wilderness while enjoying the comforts of modern living.

A Setting Like No Other

While the island offers the tranquility and seclusion you desire, you won’t have to sacrifice modern conveniences. The cottage is equipped with hydro, ensuring you have a reliable power source. And for those looking to embrace sustainable living, there are plans to install solar panels in the future, making this island oasis even more eco-friendly.

Spacious and Thoughtfully Designed

Spanning a generous 1,842 square feet, this 1.5-storey cottage offers ample space for your family and guests. With 3+1 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, you’ll have all the room you need to create lasting memories.

The large loft area is perfect for overflow sleeping, ensuring everyone has a comfortable place to rest after a day of island adventures. We understand the importance of maximizing living space, which is why we eliminated the utility room. In a three-season building like this, HVAC systems aren’t required by building code, making the extra living space a valuable addition.

A Unique Foundation System

One of the standout features of this cottage is its innovative post and beam foundation system. Unlike traditional cottages that rely heavily on concrete, we’ve minimized concrete usage. Poured concrete is limited to footing areas, mainly because mixing it on-site in wheelbarrows can be quite a hassle. The rest of the foundation utilizes prefabricated concrete pier blocks, providing sturdy support for a wood-framed subfloor.

Your Island Retreat Awaits

If island living in Muskoka has always been your dream, the Island Cottage is your ticket to making that dream a reality. With its innovative foundation, spacious design, and a location that’s nothing short of spectacular, this cottage is ready to become your private retreat.
