Additional Location Information

Beautiful memories
My favourite part about memories is making them, what do you think? 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, my personal favourite, hosting a snowman building competition

Lakeside sauna
Bask in the warmth of the wood-fired sauna while overlooking the lake. Jump out and roll around in the snow for a refreshing (and healthy) giggle

Outdoor hot tub
Whether you like a quiet soak with your partner, or a boisterous splash with friends, enjoy the bubbles and lakeside views in the outdoor hot tub (open May Victoria day weekend to October Thanksgiving each year)

Log fireplaces & outdoor fire pit
Sharing ghost stories is best done in front of the fire light, isn't it? Gather around the outdoor fire pit or in front of one of the beautiful log fireplaces in each of the two living rooms. Just be sure to check under the bed before going to sleep

Close to Toronto
The road trip games will have only begun by the time you arrive - just 90 mins from Toronto. You'll be playing together on the lake in no time

Free internet
Stay in touch with loved ones further afield. Share your memories as they happen on the free high speed wifi available wirelessly anywhere in the cottage and outside on the deck. Selfie anyone?

Open year round
My grandmother's winter warmer recipe: Combine snowflakes, winter skies, family & friends. Throw in a dash of playing on the ice followed by a generous helping of roaring fires. Mix together and serve warm.

At Trenanthia Cottage, you'll be on an inlet off Sparrow Lake, one of the many large lakes in the Muskoka region. Being on an inlet means you're close to the action of the main lake, but still far enough away not to be directly effected by the speedboats & jet skis of other cottagers.

Wrap-around deck, sandy beach, outdoor fire pit
The large wrap-around deck has no banister to obscure lakeside views. It has plenty of space for hanging out and hosts the built-in hot tub open from the Victoria Day weekend until Thanksgiving each year where you can soak up the wonderful vistas. There's a large propane barbecue for those al fresco dining evenings. Steps lead down from the deck to the sandy beach for volleyball, horseshoes and sand castle fun. Share marshmallows around the outdoor fire pit while the sun sets.

Canoe, paddle-boat, row-boat & more
Your rental includes a canoe, a paddle-boat, a row-boat, volleyball, badminton, horseshoes and more. You can also bring your own boat if that floats your .... well, .... boat. There's great fishing in Sparrow Lake off the dock or in the inlet. Our inlet is very popular for winter ice-fishing too - speaking of which ...

Winter fun
The cottage is fully winterised and ready for fun any of the four seasons. Winter fun includes ice fishing & ice hockey on the inlet, snowmobiling (local rentals available), cross country skiing, and snowshoeing.

Boating & water access
The cottage has extensive water access - as part of the Trent-Severn waterway system, there is access via locks to to Georgian Bay and Lake Simcoe. A variety of water craft and toys are available to rent in nearby Gravenhurst and Bracebridge. They will even deliver the craft to the nearby public launch. Or you can bring your own boat and moor it at our dock.

Water sports
On the lake, there are all the usual activities available like sailing, canoeing, jet-ski and motor-boating, with a public beach and various areas of crown land nearby for swimming.

Snowmobiling & skiing
Perfect for your group snowmobiling weekend.
The cottage is on Sparrow Lake which is home to one of the area's many OFSC snowmobiling trails... connect anywhere in Muskoka! Or you can strap on skis at nearby Nordic and downhill resorts.

With Gravenhurst and Orillia both under 20 minutes away, there is easy access to large retail shops and movie theatres as well as the quaint independent shops typical of Muskoka.

Want more information?
Just ask! And the Muskoka tourist information centre is only 10 minutes away from the cottage, where you can find any activity that suits you.
