MUSKOKA'S WHITE HOUSE is a contemporary glass cottage that virtually floats on Lake Rosseau. Only a few steps from the water, the grounds consist of the Cottage, the Guest Bunkie, 4 slip Boathouse and the Cabana Bar that sits on the end of the oversized dock. Enjoy the Green Egg Smoker, the most versatile barbecue or outdoor cooking product, with BBQ, smoking and oven capabilities.
With an oversized 2000 square foot dock that gets both sun and shade all day long, the waterfront is perfect for quiet family time and for entertaining. The Cabana Bar offers a great hangout away from the sun to enjoy a cocktail with friends, watch the U.S. Open, listen to music on the outdoor sound system, read a book, take a nap or simply enjoy the view. The massive dock provides a large sectional sitting, while the Cabana has a sheltered sectional as well as a bar with 5 bar stools.
The 4200 square foot open-concept Main Cottage boasts 4 bedrooms including an oversized primary with spectacular views, indoor bar, heated floors, laundry, WiFi, and a top of the line kitchen with a walk in fridge, steam oven and two dishwashers. Second floor TV/media room with expansive windows make you feel like you are immersed in the Muskoka natural environment.
There are two bedrooms on the main floor; a queen with ensuite as well as a bedroom with a queen bunk with a trundle. On the second floor guests will find two bedrooms; one with ensuite that can be configured as 2 twins or a king as well as the incredible, over sized primary bedroom which spans the entire length of the cottage overlooking Lake Rosseau.
The 600 square foot 1 bedroom/bathroom Guest Cabin with a loft can sleep a couple and up to three younger ones in the loft.
The boathouse is full of wake skates, wake surf, wake boards, water skis, life jackets, paddle boards, canoes and kayaks ready to enjoy a day of activities on the open water. All the Muskoka toys you ever thought you may need are here!

Just wanted to let you know that we are settled in at Muskoka White House. The road was plowed and the steps cleared, and the cottage is in immaculate order. Heidi has done a terrific job again. Thank you for the vase of roses - they are lovely. Have a great family day weekend!
We made it to the cottage safely last night.
Thank you for the beautiful flowers and the candle. That was really generous and very much appreciated.
The cottage is beautiful and everything is perfect.
We stayed at the beautiful White House. The cottage was perfectly furnished with extremely beautiful views of the lake. We had lots of space and amenities. Great beds, bedwear, towels. Couldn't ask for more. The cabana was especially our "hangout spot".
Attractive modern architecture (at "White House"). Well equipped. Great dock and lakefront living. Outstanding views. Not too much boat traffic. 15 minutes from Port Carling. Jayne's very prompt response time was outstanding. David's introduction to the house technology was thorough and understandable. The response to some storm problems was greatly appreciated.
The cottage was clean and beautiful and provided my family with days of quiet enjoyment. Jayne was available to answer any of our questions and made sure that the front walk was clean, the heat was on and that there was plenty of firewood available for our use. Our stay at "The White House" was one of the best family holidays I can remember. We look forward to going back!!
