My home is located in the heart of Muskoka one of Canada's premier world vacation destinations.

The two-story Dutch-style century farmhouse overlooks Mary's Lake and is only minutes away from Huntsville and Bracebridge both a source for great food, fun, and adventure. If you have a passion for the outdoors there is no better place to be. Shopping, a night at the movies or live theatre it's all right at your fingertips.

I provide a full hot breakfast from 7:30 - 10 am

The space
This room fully renovated in 2021 has a great view overlooking Mary Lake, a south-east-facing balcony that is a good place to be with your morning coffee enjoying the sunrise over the trees.

There is a very good size TV, HD Satellite TV, DVD player with tons of movies to watch, an electric fireplace, floor to ceiling dressing mirrors, air conditioner, reading lamps, blackout curtains, Amazon Echo, refrigerator right outside your door. You will find a breakfast menu in the room so you can choose ahead what you will have in the morning at my full, hot sit-down breakfast.

** Important ** The manor has a scenic view of Mary Lake from my porches and the balcony but the lake is only accessible by watercraft. The beach and all the property on the other side of the road are private. Also as per the name Brown Dog Manor, we do have a Chocolate Lab dog on the premises, she loves all my guests.

Where you’ll be

Huntsville, Ontario, Canada

Rowanwood road area is rural non-working farms and cottages. Two-century farm homes are still standing both build between 1895 and 1905, mine is one and the other our neighbours that can be seen from our property. There are 2 small quiet lakes you can reach from our dock upstream on the very slow-moving river. That same river empties into Mary lake part of the four lake system that works its way into Huntsville via the Muskoka River System.

Retired and loving it. Huntsville has been our home since 1980 after moving from Toronto to start an RV business and hack out a living as a young couple ready for anything that came our way. My wife and I started in a 15-foot trailer, then to a cottage and in 1984 bought a terribly run-down farmhouse in Utterson a few miles south of town overlooking Mary Lake that would be our work project for the next 5 years. Lots of struggles along the long road but we had a vision of what the home is today, restored, beautiful, and peaceful. We had a son Tyler along the way who now works in Toronto and lives in Milton, just a little too peaceful for him here. We both retired and started the Airbnb in 2017 to keep busy and meet guests from around the world. Marilyn and I parted ways in 2019 but are still great friends and without her hard work and devotion none of this would have been possible. This old farm home, a product of the land grant era in the mid-1800s is one of only a few left standing in the area, and I am so happy to be its steward and share it with my family, friends and guests.
