Zephyr is a quiet, compact retreat, built with all modern furnishings. There are 2 separate bedrooms with a queen size bed in each. It is enjoyable any season of the year. We are located close to Huntsville and only a short drive to Algonquin Park.
Zephyr is located on Peninsula Lake in the heart of Muskoka, one of the larger more beautiful lakes. The unit is situated above a garage so there are stairs to get to it.
The kitchen has a mini fridge, microwave, slow cooker, coffee maker, hot plate, electric frying pan and toaster oven. On the lower level, there is a large fridge and a washer and a dryer. There is not a stove.
There is a charcoal barbecue and an outside table with four chairs. These are not accessible in the winter months.
The cozy living room seats four comfortably. There is High-speed internet and you can use your netflix. These are not guaranteed since they can be affected by weather. There is also a counter with four bar-stools for meal time or you can eat outside on the deck. Air conditioning and a ceiling fan will keep you comfortable on hot days. There is a cupboard below the centre island on the living room side where there are games and puzzles.
For chilly evenings or rainy days, there is a furnace and propane fireplace.
There are two bedrooms with a queen sized bed in each. The four-piece bathroom is located directly between the bedrooms.
At the waterfront, guests can enjoy the beauty of sunsets over Peninsula Lake, fish, boat,swim or enjoy reading a book there.
To get to the waterfront, there are wide stone stairs to the main house where you can continue at a gradual slope to the lake. There is 66 feet of frontage and two sandy beaches on each side of the boat house for the little ones to play. The water is four to five feet deep at the end of the shared dock with a ladder.
There is an outside fireplace near Zephyr where you can have a small fire. The unit is stored in the garage or you may find it on its spot outside Zephyr. There are chairs located in the garage that you can use around the fire. Please put chairs away in the garage when you leave. Leave the fireplace outside. Do not put this unit on the balcony. It will melt the decking.

I was luck enough as a child to spend my summers in Muskoka and my children and grandchildren have also enjoyed this experience. Our old cottage was torn down 5 years ago and now we enjoy all the modern conveniences with central air in a perfect location. My husband and I enjoyed designing our home and spend our spare time gardening boating and swimming. There is always time for golf. We enjoy taking our dog Brandy for numerous interesting walks and she keeps us active. In the evenings we take time to enjoy our coffee in front of the fire or sitting on the dock watching the sun go down
