It’s all about relaxing here. Curl up in a Muskoka chair with a loved one and start the trip off right with sunset views and a glass of wine.

The inside of this chateau is just as beautiful as the views outside. The grand entrance with its spiral staircase will make you feel like you’re royalty.

The wood accents throughout the entire chateau give off a rustic and simple vibe while still being luxurious. An open-concept kitchen, living, and dining area makes the 5,550 sq. foot space feel even more spacious.

The formal sitting room is ideal for catching up with your family or friends over a cup of coffee. The bright white colour palette feels equal parts cozy and luxurious.

Be careful—you’ll be so in awe of the wood beams in this kitchen, you just might forget about the appetizers in the oven.

If you feel like taking your party outside, there’s an outdoor fireplace and seating for all. We suggest spending a morning right here, wrapped up in a blanket, watching the sunrise.
