This beautiful newly built cottage (2019) plus bunkie, on scenic Whitestone Lake is gorgeous in every season! The giant great room and wall of windows looking over the lake sparkles blue in the summer and white in the winter. In the summer, the dock has a perfect spot for jumping in or sunning in Muskoka chairs all day long. The cozy vintage yet upscale combo of this cottage really makes it feel like you have fully arrived in your classic northern home. We can't wait for you to see it yourself!

The space
-My sister Lisa and I and our families have together re-built our old cottage (well, taken it down!) to bring you this brand new piece of our hearts. We have made it with you in mind, as well as our large family! With 7 little children between our two families, the space is very family friendly! It is also an excellent spot for friends to enjoy some time relaxing and respectfully enjoying the north. We want you to know that there are some details to attend to, we have a list of to-do's that we are working on each time we get there! (small things mind you! Like a new drawer pull etc).
-The bunkie is a 3 season building that has a bunkbed (double/single) as well as a baseboard heater and an a/c unit.
-Our Dad, Harry, lives on the property in his own separate building. He is very private and will not be around unless you need something. See the last 2 photos for relevance of how close his place is.
- Please note, we want to share our family cottage with you but we must be respectful of our neighbors, many of whom are permanent residents. We ask that all guests keep indoor and outdoor noise to a minimum at all times and comply with Municipality of Whitestone Noise Control By-Law.

- We are dog friendly!

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire cottage, bunkie, parking area, yard, and dock. On the property is Harry's house as well (Mine and Lisa's Dad). He lives there all year and is happy to help if you need anything. He is a rather private man so you may not see him at all.

Other things to note
- Dogs are welcome! Please ensure the following:
- When outside, dogs MUST be on a leash. Our neighbors do NOT appreciate
dogs wandering onto their property;
- Dog owners are expected to scoop their dogs poop and dispose of it
appropriately in the trash;
- Please ensure that your dog does not get mud on the furniture/beds.

- Sound carries on the lake so please be respectful of our neighbors and keep noise to a minimum. Our neighbors have and will call the local by-law officer to make complaints about guests making excessive noise in violation of the Noise Control By-Law.

Location

Dunchurch, Ontario, Canada

Whitestone Lake is a quiet and peaceful community that has a very small town feel. Our Cottage is one of many in a small bay and noise travels easily across the water and through the trees; as such, it is imperative that guests keep noise to a minimum and comply with the Noise Control By-Law.

There is one convenience store and gas station in Dunchurch where you can also get ice cream cones. At the end of the main road to get into the cottage there is a home that sells their home made maple syrup, you gotta try it. Parry Sound has practically everything else you may need (including Starbucks) and is only a short drive away.

Hi there! I’m Erik. My sister Lisa and I have been coming up to this lake (and our former cottage) for the past 36 years; the property has been in our family for over 60 years and it has been a labour of love for our families to rebuild the Miethner/Fraites cottage! It is our happy place. I'm a full blown real estate geek and I love it – I’m fortunate to very much enjoy what I do. My wife, Brittany, has spent the last decade building a health and wellness business that she’s totally addicted to (in a great way!). We have 3 beautiful girls under the age of 6 at home too! I love spending time at the cottage, whenever possible, but life is busy and we can’t be there all the time. I love dogs, water skiing, puttering in my barn and of course, my family! Lisa is a lawyer by trade and is currently at home with their 4 amazing kiddos (2 girls and twin boys - all under the age of 6). Steve is in IT sales and loves all things sports and spending time with family. He comes from a wonderful large family so he is as comfortable as a fish in water in their chaotic but love filled home. We look forward to learning a little about you too - thanks for checking out our cottage! We hope that you come to love and enjoy our happy place as much as we do.
