Enjoy 1200 sq ft of privacy in our custom log cabin, set at the base of a gorgeous rock face. Warmth and character cover every inch of this home, from the massive round logs to the ambiance of a wood stove, soaring cathedral ceiling, loft master bedroom & custom designed main floor bath (with heated slate tiles), and a large gourmet kitchen. All on the 90 acre Legacy Maple Farm. Explore our private trails by hiking, snowshoeing or snowmobiling. Located 15 minutes from Huntsville, Ontario.

The space
Note from Bill & Carolyn: "We are open for new bookings starting in July! There are some existing bookings which were arranged prior to the shutdown, but we still have some nice blocks of days available from July onward!"

Legacy Log Cabin is a secluded, get-away-from-the-hustle-of-the-city-kind-of-place. Enjoy 1200 square feet of private space for up to two people in a stunning log cabin, tucked in by a cliff face and surrounded by woods. Set back from a quiet, year-round and paved municipal road, it's located at the entrance of Legacy Maple Farm, a 90 acre single-forest producer of 100% pure maple syrup.

The cabin is not a one-size-fits-all destination (having a maximum occupancy of two adults, for a 1200 sq ft cabin, is quite uncommon in the vacation rental market). Guest comments and reviews often contain the words peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. Bill and Carolyn enjoy meeting guests at check-in and, whenever possible, saying good-bye at the end of the stay. They love sharing their little piece of paradise, and are committed to providing the perfect canvas for guests to create their own idea of a romantic get-away.

When you first walk in, the massive hand-hewn round logs and cathedral ceiling create a dramatic, yet warm feeling, and the over-sized windows ensure an abundance of natural light, as well as great views. A spacious loft master bedroom features a statement-piece queen bed, triple-sheeted with luxurious high-end linens. You also have the choice of fluffy down or hypo-allergenic pillows and duvet/blankets. Under the loft, the large country kitchen, made of maple cabinetry, surrounding a centerpiece antique butcher block, is outfitted with all the appliances, tools, and basic pantry supplies necessary to satisfy both the 'throw together a meal' and 'gourmet foodie' types. The main floor bathroom has 'in-room control' heated slate flooring for use in cooler weather, and a generously-sized custom two person shower (with 2 shower heads). Outside, on the wrap-around deck, the barbecue area overlooks the maple syrup 'sugar house' and has a close-up view of the property's signature rock face.

At the cabin there is a different flow to things. It is just far enough away from busy town life - a 15 minute drive, and more private than the cottage 'subdivisions' that line many of the lakes in the area. You can breath deeply here, enjoy a star-filled dark sky, listen to the hauntingly beautiful call of distant wolves late into the night, and watch deer from the front window.

Carolyn spent many happy summer days as a child, escaping Toronto on family vacations for the rock and water of Muskoka. She moved away to the west in her youth, eventually meeting and marrying her husband Bill (who was raised in Muskoka). She cut her teeth in design, marketing and sales in her 20s, using her arts background - then moved into administration for large companies, until her independent streak could not be contained. She has run or managed small businesses ever since. Carolyn and Bill love travelling and meeting new people. Both preferring alternative accommodations, they have experienced the best and the worst of the vacation rental industry. Their favourite VR's are the inspiration for the cabin and the property. Carolyn's goal for the cabin - affordable luxury and great service.

During your stay
The cabin has two private suites. The main cabin, with it's loft bedroom, is self-contained and completely private with it's own driveway and entrance. The lower suite is used by Bill and Carolyn (it's walkout lower level entrance and driveway are located on the opposite side of the cabin). It is never rented out. We are generally in the Huntsville area and can be reached by text if any issues arise. The massive log walls and structurally substantial flooring support act as excellent sound buffers. Our guests often comment on how quiet and peaceful it is in the cabin.
