Located on Lake Joseph in Muskoka, this picturesque four-bedroom cottage underwent a stunning transformation to align with contemporary design sensibilities while preserving its timeless charm.

The renovation carefully curated modern elements to enhance functionality and efficiency without compromising the cottage’s rustic character.

Large dormers, peaked roofs, and hemlock floors were retained, maintaining the cottage’s quintessential features.
