The Mallard is a charming cedar cottage (Pan-Abode design), nestled in a small bay in the woods on beautiful Dickie Lake, 10 minutes from Baysville. Relax and enjoy the beautiful Muskoka scenery from our dock overlooking calm waters and Southwestern sun exposure, making for breathtaking sunsets year round. Ideal for families, especially with shallow water entrance. Canoe, kayak, fish in the summer. Snowshoe, ice skate and get cozy in the winter.

The space
Designed for comfort and style, we have poured our hearts into modernizing our space and making it both stylish and cozy for you to enjoy. Ideal for families and small groups. We sleep 8 guests (with bunkie) from May - Oct, and 6 guests in the winter months.
