The space
My little cabin is open! I’m very happy to announce Woodwind is available for bookings. I will be following stringent cleaning and sanitizing protocols provided by Air bnb. 24 hours between guests will provide a health and safety ‘buffer time’ for cleaning and sanitization. If available, I am open to longer stays. It’s just difficult to balance my bookings with time in between. Message me if you need alternate days/longer stays. Weekly stays welcome. My house is right next door if you need anything.

I also ask guest follow Ontario provincial guidelines when travelling to Muskoka. Minimizing contact with our community, and staying home if you are sick.

This year I will not be providing firewood, so please bring your own for the outdoor fire pit. I may have bundles for sale here, just in the process of setting it up, stay tuned.

You will love my handcrafted cabin! IG #woodwindcabin

The water is pure spring water from a 200 foot well, drilled into solid granite. Please respect the water and use only what you need.

Outside is your own private deck, and fire pit with Muskoka chairs, surrounded by Canadian granite, honeysuckle bushes, and towering white pines. Complete with patio furniture, hammock. You can park directly outside the cabin.
The main house is right next door, with the parking are separating the two buildings. (see my photos for views from cabin windows), and I give my guests quiet and privacy Woodwind cabin and all it's amenities, are strictly reserved for your use.

50 meteres away is a nice sandy community beach, marina, government docks for fishing and boat launch.
Gravenhurst is 10 minutes away where you can go for an afternoon ride on the oldest running steamship in North America, The Segwun. Dine at the wharf, or take a nice drive to Bala, visit the falls, and eat the best buns you have ever tasted at Don's bakery.
Vist the Gravenhurst farmers market on Wednesdays, or go for a easy wilderness hike at Torrence Barrens, the stargazing capital of Ontario. I will be happy to give you any suggestions.

Are you price comparing different listings on air bnb? Keep in mind woodwind cabin is only 1 hr 45 min from Toronto. There is no additional charge for 2 guests. BBQ is also included, and HST. This truly is a lovely space :)

Guest access
Guests will have access to parking in front of the cabin for easy loading and unloading bags etc. The outdoor fireplace directly beside Woodwind Cabin. You will also have your own large deck, lawn and 2 hammocks to relax and hang out. The small community beach is a 10 second walk down our private road, with two swimming docks. The beach is very sandy with an easy sloping entry.There is also government docks and Marina, for fishing and boat launching (parking as well). The main house is not for guest use.

Other things to note
I discourage guests from bringing disposable plastic water bottles here. No need to bring bottled water to the cabin. It's the best you have ever tasted! Please respect the well, (the main house uses the same well) and be conservative with short showers and water consumption in general.

Please keep all fires small. No smoking in the cabin.

Extra stuff you might find helpful to bring:
extra towels for the beach
flashlight for night walks
marshmallows for the fire

Kahshe Lake is a very special place for me. My Great Grandfather, Evander, built some of the cottages along the road back in the 1920's. My ancestors enjoyed the beach, and the healing waters, just as we are so lucky to do now. The area is a quaint collection of cottages, mostly built from the 1920's to the 1950's. A very cozy feel with friendly neighbours.

Our public beach is only 50 meters away. It's a sandy slopping beach with two swimming docks.

The cabin is surrounded by trees and rock with my house on the other side. The driveway is shared (but not close) to the cabin so you have comfortable privacy. The cabin is extremely well insulated with new windows, door, bathroom, and original wood floor.

If you want a close getaway from the city, connect with nature, relax and have a bonfire, the location is perfect. I chop your firewood too!

Hiking trails are accessible by car south and north of Woodwind Cabin (ask me for recommendations) . Our main road is a nice walk too (a bit hilly) down to the other government docks and an old lodge from the 1920's (no longer operating) Rockhaven Inn.

The lake is especially nice because of it's special properties. The water has a slight tea colour, infused with healing tannins. Resist the urge to shower after a swim, and feel how soft your hair and skin is! One of my aunts used to bring water back to the city just to wash her hair.

I am an artist from Muskoka. I love to travel to different shows to sell my work. I also enjoy my home life of relaxing and working on my house and in the studio. I like dogs, animals, and love nature in general. My favourite hobby now is my electric outboard boat. There is nothing like being out on the lake! Originally, I started to rent Woodwind Cabin for fun, but soon realized how much people loved it. I am so happy my guests can connect with nature, relax, and enjoy my uncomplicated design. I did a complete restoration myself, you could say it's a 'hand made' cabin!

During your stay
Im usually there to welcome my guests. But I believe in giving as much privacy as possible, unless they need something. My house is next door, the parking area is between the two buildings. You will see me occasionally.
