Perfect location with all of the amenities!

Date of Stay:

Perfect location with all of the amenities for a fun family vacation. The property was stunning with a sunset view. The home was spotless and had plenty of space and anything you could possibly need to make your stay relaxing and fun. The views were spectacular and nicer than any pictures could do justice. The property management was incredibly responsive. We would love to have the opportunity to return for another fun family vacation!

Clean and spacious ~ definitely recommend!

Date of Stay:

“Acton island was great. It was clean and spacious. The main floor has a large open concept with plenty of room for hanging out and fabulous views of the lake. Grounds outside were also very inviting with an excellent fire pit area and a very nice boat house with an extra bedroom up top. Definitely recommend staying there.”

The perfect Family get away!

Date of Stay:

Excellent experience! Beautiful, well built cottage that accommodated our family of 12 in comfort and style. Thanksgiving was made even more memorable with the backdrop of Muskoka in fall. Gorgeous fall colours, over the lake and a warm fire inside made for a perfect weekend get away. Easy access to the lake and everything was very comfortable. We will be back again next year as this is now a family tradition!

Acton Island is the place to be!

Date of Stay:

What a find! This luxury newly built home has everything you desire. A fabulous main floor with views of the lake and room for guests to gather. A screened porch for meals in the evening. A boathouse with guest quarters. A built in firepit plus a 4 hole putting green and two swim docks! Even a water trampoline! Acton Island is a land accessible island on Lake Muskoka close to Port Carling and Bala. Right in the heart of Muskoka yet you have your own private enclave to enjoy!
