Why Dan Hunter chose Port Stanton

Severn Escape has the perfect blend of all the conveniences of a luxury home, while in the beautiful surroundings of the Muskoka lakes district: Miles of boating waterways on the Severn and sunsets on Sparrow Lake. You can also sit in the outdoors regardless of weather in the screened in porch. Yet it is less than 1.5 hours from Toronto, and half way between Orillia and Gravenhurst still close enough for attractions and any purchases you may need.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Severn Escape is an ideal location for your winter or summer getaway: It lets you stay connected via internet, its got all your creature comforts, while at the same time it is the perfect spot to relax and unwind with family and friends. It gives you all the space to enjoy activities together or separate: While the adults entertain on the main floor living or dining room area, the kids can enjoy the spacious rec room area, with their own entertainment or music. Then all parties can come together for dinner on the large deck or a singalong at the firepit. Its time for a Severn Escape...

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Although we described it as a cottage to our friends , the usable space was larger than our own home. We found it to be exactly as it is described on the website. Three functional floors for various activities. Best suited for people with a boat to take advantage of the great location and docking available right on the Trent Severn System.

Outdoor facilities are new and well constructed with lots of room between you and the next cottage.

We would definitely do it again.

Beautiful place - won't be disappointed

  • 4 of 5

The house and view are beautiful. We went up there during the hottest days of the year - high 80's and it felt like over 100 per the Weather Channel and the only issue we had was the A/C was not keeping us cool enough. The view of the river is awesome and it is a short boat ride to Sparrow lake. Having two big rooms to hang out gave us plenty of space and the screened in porch was great when the bugs came out.

Owner's Response: Thanks you Mark. From your feedback, we learned the condenser in our AC was kaput, so we installed a brand new High Efficiency Air Conditioner in July 2016. We haven't had to use it as we love the Severn breezes, but its good to know we have it if we encounter a heat wave like the one you guys had. Thanks again! Dan & Jo-Dee

Best Cottage at Sparrow Lake

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for anything more and this is my 3rd time renting this cottage. Beautiful view and excellent location to have friends and family gathering. The cottage is well maintained and very modern and close to Toronto. The owner was also very friendly and approachable, and was always available to see to our needs. Thanks again for everything Dan!

Owner's Response: Richard, its a pleasure having renters like you and your guests who ensure to enjoy their stay, but also are conscientious by taking care of our place, and leave it in great condition for the next renter. We certainly look forward to having you again next year!
