Holiday Rental House
A lovely cottage, in the blissful village of Windermere on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka, Ontario. A newly architect renovated intimate space, rustic architecture finished in a romantic contemporary style. You will feel right at home, right away. Steps from the golf course, the Windermere beach, Windermere House hotel across the road. We supply basics like olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, starter kit of coffee and tea, milk, cream, sugar and you can get pretty much all the groceries you might need to cook at home from the Windermere Village Store next door. Windermere is a great place to do nothing, and plenty of it. A couple of notes about the property: WIFI service can be unreliable at the cottage, but is available at the main building next door, and at the hotel.

Steps from a beach, we spent most of our week reading due to bad weather. The cottage lacked nothing, except WiFi and we enjoyed catching up on John Reabus!

The Roost Cottage is delightful and I enjoyed my stay. The cottage was spotlessly clean and comfortable and well-equipped in terms of furniture, cooking, towels, shampoo, soap, etc. There is a standalone air conditioner in the master bedroom. Parking is on the street. There is...More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is in Muskoka, a wonderful place to visit. Windermere is nicely off the beaten track, and beautifully scenic. It is located in the heart of the village, across the street from historic Windermere House hotel, and Golf Course. You can get groceries at the Windermere Village Store, or if you prefer to dine out there is a great selection of restaurants at the hotel, or within a 1/2 hour drive to Rosseau, Bracebridge, Port Carling or Huntsville. Muskoka is a great place to just do nothing, and lots of it. Reading, relaxing, enjoying the passing scene, quiet conversation, or if you are looking for more activities, canoeing, tennis, golf are all available out the door. The area is also a wonderful place to cycle. The beach is a two minute walk away.
How to get there
There are many routes to get here, all scenic, all the surrounding towns offer museums, antiquing and general shopping. Depending on where you are coming from I will provide directions, or Google Maps will do it for you.
