Full weeks are available and there may be some weekends or weekdays as well. The Inn sleeps up to 30 in 10 uniquely decorated, well-appointed bedrooms with 10 bathrooms.

Most bedrooms have private en suite bathrooms and one of the 3rd floor bedrooms has a spectacular view from the en suite outdoor deck. It is a mixture of queen, king and twin-sized beds. A few of them are bunks.

Perfect for extended family gatherings or small business retreats. It is also perfect for weddings and there have been many wonderful marriages at the Portage Inn.

The large kitchen is fully outfitted with everything you need to cook up a storm and has many counter surfaces, 2 fridges and a Garland stove with 6 burners and 2 ovens, a commercial dishwasher, a triple sink and in the adjacent laundry room there is an additional fridge and a deep freezer. There is a second kitchen on the 3rd floor. Large families and caterers love it.

A laundry room is available for your use. We provide sheets and towels but you do your own laundry and cleaning during your stay (unless you wish us to bring in a housekeeper to help out).

The 1000 square foot great room provides dining areas for up to 30 and sports a large stone central fireplace, a pool table and a bar. The 400 square foot adjacent lounge is a screening room and also suitable as a meeting room.

Outside, the 1500 square foot patio, just off the great room and with fantastic views of the lake has tables/chairs and loungers, and a propane Weber BBQ. This is where most wedding parties have their reception under a big tent. There is a pretty English garden and open lawn areas perfect for games as well as a fire-pit.

At the lake, a 4-minute walk down the hill, there is a sandy walk-in beach and our private dock. The lake is great for swimming, fishing and boating. We provide some canoes, a kayak and paddle boat for your use.

Amenities include: wireless internet, satellite TV, DVD player and an ipod/CD player.

Lots of parking for cars and boat trailers, if you want to bring your own boat. (Check with us first)

About Brian Webster

We are book-writers and decided we needed to be in nature, so Muskoka was our choice. The inn is a lot more space than we know what to do with. Built in 1889 it is filled with charm and we love to share it.

Brian Webster purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Brian Webster chose Huntsville

Nancy spent her childhood coming to Muskoka and was thrilled when the opportunity arose to come back again.

What makes this cottage unique

This old inn provides a very unusual mix of charm, space, privacy, rustic luxury and modern amenities. The great room, 1000 square feet is the perfect place for family and friends to hang out and play, when they are not our exploring muskoka, swimming, fishing or canoeing in the lake or on our new dock, or sunning themselves on the 1500 sq foot patio that overlooks the lake.
