Real Estate

Go off the grid at this Muskoka yurt with 11 private acres

Talk about privacy. This rental property is one of only two cottages on Benson Lake, an 85-acre spring-fed lake in Muskoka. Leave your electronics (and your work stressors) behind. Guests will sleep in the wool-lined yurt and prepare meals in the property’s accompanying cabin.

Take a dip in the lake, use the property’s outdoor shower, or sit around the fire pit stargazing. With 11 acres of private property, the only sounds will be the chirping of birds and the light rush of water down the property’s waterfall into the lake.

If you’re looking for excursions, the property is a 12-minute drive to the town of Huntsville and 30 minutes to Algonquin Provincial Park.
