Located in MacTier, this charming entire house for £367 per night is a great choice for your next vacation. Very private cottage on a small bay of a much larger lake. Only one neighbor, surrounded by crown land. Main cottage has one master bedroom with king bed, newly renovated bathroom with shower and laundry, kitchen including a small dishwasher, dining room, and living room. Bunkie has two bedrooms each with a queen bed, as well with a half-bathroom. Access to the water both from the dock and from the sandy beach. Living room has a pull-out couch to accommodate more guests. Guests can enjoy satellite TV as well as a collection of DVDs and boardgames on those rare rainy days (we also provide an hdmi cable should you want to bring a computer with your own movies and tv shows). Guests coming with kids can enjoy the sandy beach which is shared with our single neighbour (our family). There is a platform which you can swim to to jump off of, and we also have 2 canoes, 2 kayaks, and 2 paddle boards which you may use at your own responsibility (paddles included, please bring life jackets). If you have any dogs, please feel free to bring them along! Our two pups, love running around the 2 acres of property. With a private driveway, and close access to Mactier complete with a grocery store, hardware store and LCBO you will always have those necessities near at hand. Further, with little traffic, there is excellent terrain for walks with your entire family. Port Carling is also only a 40 minute drive away, with many shops and restaurants - enjoy a day out experiencing the Muskoka culture. If you would like some nightlife, you can visit the same Port Carling, or travel only 10 minutes further to Bala, both with excellent bars and clubs. Our property is very picturesque, with the cottage sitting directly on the Canadian Shield, and over 650 ft of waterfront. Enjoy breakfast as the sun comes up over the bay, surrounded by crown land. Or sip your morning coffee from the peacefulness of the Muskoka chairs by the lake. On a clear night, the stars are phenomenal, influenced by no light pollution. When it starts to get a little chilly, or you just want to roast some marshmallows, feel free to make use of either our outdoor fire pit near the water or our outdoor, antique wood stove where you can safely enjoy a fire with your family and friends (subject to local fire regulations).  Read more

Great cottage on a quiet lake
We stayed a week at the cottage. It was perfect for us. We had some friends and family join us and there was lots of room for 8 people. The cottage is on a beautiful piece of land with many areas you can walk into the water. We used the canoe and kayaks every day we were there. Our dog loved playing on the rocks and in the water. A short drive to mactier which has everything you would need for your stay - foodland, lcbo, home hardware. Lots of different sitting areas around the cottage deck and throughout the property. Owners were quick to deal with any problems that arose during our stay - handy having their family next door.  Read more

Fantastic Muskoka Vacation
We rented the McCabe's cottage from August 11-18, 2017. We had a fantastic vacation there. The cottage is completely charming and comfortable and the property is gorgeous. Everything we wanted in a vacation spot was there - the use of a canoe for early morning fishing trips, lovely outdoor seating areas, great deck seating and BBQ, life jackets and pool noodles for lots of water activity, and a well-equipped kitchen. We simply loved this place and recommend it highly to anyone looking for a great getaway location.  Read more

Clean and well maintained, beautiful view!
We had a great week in September to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary, thanks to our family. The cottage is in a beautiful location with easy access to the water. Small sandy beach that provided a great place for our young granddaughter to wade out. Mactier is close by for groceries and supplies at the Foodland and Home Hardware and has a LCBO which is also convenient. I caught a 4lb Northern Pike while fishing from the dock!! Tree colours we're just starting to change. Thank you to Adam and Jessica. Read more

A great find !
We all quickly fell in love with this amazing place. A beautiful and comfortable cottage, a perfect location, privacy, quiet most of the time, modern appliances, comfortable beds, clean, and, bonus of all bonuses, dogs welcomed! The first clue that we had hit a jackpot came when our three-year-old spaniel madly ran around the property for 5 minutes when we arrived… like he had found heavens. We were 4 adults, one child, and the spaniel, and we had plenty of space, in or outside of the buildings. Two sides of the cottage face the lake and both sides have a deck - which are connected. The deck closest to the kitchen has a large wooden table that will comfortably sit 6 people, with a great Napoleon BBQ. The deck off the living / dining room has a smaller breakfast table and lounging chairs, and there are other loungers and Muskoka chairs on the property. Our 8-year-old granddaughter had a blast exploring the site, playing on the dock, catching (and releasing) minnows and frogs, kayaking (BYO PFD for proper fit), or in the water with everyone else. Our 81 year old mother needed help to walk around the property as it is not flat, but she did go in the water every day. Cyclists will need a touring bike for the gravel road – as I did, (I made it up the hill going out!) or, drive out to the paved roads with your road bike and ride Healey Lake road to Georgian Bay. There is a tennis court near the marina close by if tennis is your thing, but we never used it so enquire first – there may be a fee. The owners are very friendly, easy going, accommodating, and, pay attention to details, right down to the flower beds on the property. They obviously love this place - and so did we.  Read more

2018 Summer Vacation at Healey Lake
This is the second summer vacation we have had at this cottage and we hope it becomes an annual trek! We love the cottage (it is spacious and comfortable) and the property is spectacular. This is a well-maintained and nicely appointed vacation spot. Since last year, the owners added a new water filtration system, a new dock, new dishes, an electric fireplace and new deck lounge chairs ... and we already thought it was perfect! We made use of the canoe at the cottage and rented a boat for a couple of days from Mariners Cove Marina. We had a pile of fun in the water. The fishing is great right off the dock so if you are considering this property for a vacation, bring your rod. We highly recommend this cottage. Read more
