The frozen, snow covered lake. Can snow be any whiter? Can sky be any more blue? This is 'Serenity'.

In search of privacy, stunning views, beautiful natural waterfront and outstanding accommodation? This impressive architect owned and designed cottage delivers. Watch heron fly into the wetlands or otter swim by. Relax ... you have found 'Serenity'.
On Otter Lake, we frown on the noise and pollution from boat motors so only canoes, kayaks, sail boats and paddle boats can be seen albeit infrequently. The dock out to deeper water allows for swimming and diving or watercraft mooring.
A winding granite lane sweeps down to the cottage/home's entrance courtyard where glimpses of the lake around and through the home can be seen. The cottage/home sits on an exposed plateau of the Canadian Shield at the base of a point within meters of the lake on one side and a bay on the other.
Your attention will be captured as soon as the front doo...

Overall: We had a great time. For the most part the weather cooperated and we all enjoyed a lot of time outdoors. The cottage is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The cottage was affectionately called "the glass palace" by our teenagers. They appreciated all the architectural elements of the design and the stunning glass views from many locations. The location...

My family stayed at Serenity cottage recently, and couldn't have asked for a better week. It was our first time renting a cottage together. We had 7 kids with us, and 2 seniors, and everyone felt at home. As mentioned in many other reviews, the pictures, as gorgeous as they are, don't show all the beauty of this place, both...

About the neighbourhood
Huntsville is a charming and friendly destination in Ontario, Canada. It is a relatively rural destination just over two hours of driving from the large city of Toronto. This isolation only adds to the appeal of Huntsville and encourages its reputation as a place to get away from it all and enjoy the scenic landscape, water recreation activities on Muskoka River and the welcoming feel of a small town.

'Serenity' is a four season cottage. In the winter, you should expect lots of snow and although all the roads leading up to the front door are ploughed, snow tires and all wheel or four wheel drive vehicles are recommended. We have just experienced one of the harshest winters on record and delighted to say that we received an accumulated 13 feet of snow this past winter. What a winter wonderland it was. Walking on the frozen and snow covered lake out front of the cottage was amazing. So, exhilarating yet very peaceful. It's something wonderful to experience.
