Interaction with guests
Here at Trenanthia Cottage, we like to give folks the privacy, peace & tranquility they're looking for, so we make sure you can come & go as you please rather than forcing ya to be at the cottage at a specified time (for example, there’s a key in a lockbox that we’ll be sending ya the code to).

We'll set ya up with the contact details for the lovely members of our little cottage posse that take care of the cottage itself - they're nearby and uber helpful.

We'll also be sending ya a handy-dandy end-of-stay checklist so you'll be able to return 'er to 'er original condition.

Voilà. Easy peasy :)

We were 8 guys for a boys weekend away and had an awesome time! Laura was such a delight to deal with. Easy and quick to communicate with, and gives you loads of easy to understand information. We used the hot tub, sauna, paddle boat and canoe, fire pit, horseshoe pit, football, as well as the BBQ and full kitchen...

This is the second year we've stayed at this cottage for our annual dad's weekend away. It's a perfect place - lots of sleeping room and space, clean, games room, hot tub, wood sauna. And the hosts are amazing. Super friendly and helpful. Our first year at the cottage we shoveled the lake to make a small hockey sink (we...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
We have WICKED promotions on Monday to Friday getaways all year 'round starting from just $595 + hst. Just ask!

Excludes special holidays. Additional charges may apply. Rates are correct at the time of submission and are subject to change without notice.

Got questions? Just drop us a line and we'll get the rates to ya faster than small-town gossip. Speaking of which...

Under certain circumstances we can accept up to 16 guests. Additional charges may apply. Again, drop us a line and we'll let ya know the rub.

We love pets, so they stay for free* (no, your uncle Lionel will not qualify as a pet). We usually request a $250 per pet security deposit that is fully refundable when the cottage is left undamaged & pet waste free. (Nope, not aunt Ariel either)

*We let pets stay free but this site doesn't seem to want to. Doh. It's forcing us to put a charge on it so we've picked $1. Hope you don't mind

About the neighborhood
People have been coming to vacation in Muskoka since the 19th century. And why not when there's so much natural entertainment to choose from? Here at Trenanthia Cottage, gather your family & friends to share canoeing, fishing off the dock, playing horseshoes & volleyball, building sand castles on the beach or a round of good old fashioned board games. Even when it's cold outside, make memories to keep you warm: ice-fishing, cross-country skiing, skating, snowmobiling, snow fort building or our personal favourite, building massive snowpeople :)
