1200 square feet of private space for two in a stunning log cabin. Set back from a quiet, year-round and paved municipal road, it sits near the entrance to Legacy Maple Farm, a 90 acre, single-forest, producer of 100% pure maple syrup. Nestled against a stunning rock face and surrounded by predominately maple forest. When you first walk in, the massive hand-hewn round logs and cathedral ceiling create a dramatic, yet warm feeling, and the over-sized windows ensure an abundance of natural light, as well as great views. A spacious loft master bedroom features a statement-piece queen bed, triple-sheeted with luxurious high end linens. You also have the choice of fluffy down or hypo-allergenic pillows and duvet/blankets. Under the loft, the large country kitchen made of maple cabinetry, surrounding a centerpiece antique butcher block, is outfitted with all the appliances, tools, and basic pantry supplies necessary to satisfy both the 'throw together a meal' and 'gourmet foodie' types. The main floor bathroom has 'in-room control' heated slate flooring for use in cooler weather, and a generously-sized custom two person shower (with 2 shower heads). Outside, on the wrap-around deck, the barbecue area overlooks the maple syrup 'sugar house' and has a close-up view of the property's signature rock face.
At the cabin there is a different flow to things. It is just far enough away from busy town life - a 15 minute drive, and more private than the cottage 'subdivisions' that line many of the lakes in the area. You can breath deeply here, enjoy a star-filled dark sky, listen to the hauntingly beautiful call of distant wolves late into the night, and watch deer from the front window.
Once settled in, you may wish to explore a little. If one of the owner's are available during your stay, you could ask for a private tour of the maple syrup 'sugar house' to learn about the making of this 'liquid gold'. If your stay is during 'sap' season (anywhere from February 15 to the end of April, essentially whenever mother nature decides), you could see the maple sap run, the wood-fired evaporator in action, sample maple sap right out of the tree and of course, taste the freshest, and most delicious, maple syrup you have ever had.
If you love outdoor pursuits, you may want to explore some of the private trails that weave through the 90 acres. Here you have the ability to begin adventures right outside your door, during all four seasons (hiking during the spring, summer & fall, cross country skiing, tobogganing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling in winter, wildlife photography from our 'photography blind' in all seasons).
Want to do your adventuring off property? The area is full of opportunities. In spring, summer, or fall, explore hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails, canoe or kayak on countless lakes and rivers, enjoy world class fishing, ride the mountain biking trails, climb some Muskoka rock, go zip lining, to name a few. In winter, you may want to cross country or down hill ski, snowshoe, or rent a snowmobile and ride some of the well maintained network of snowmobiling trails.
Looking for something different? You might want to go on a boat tour, check out the trendy shops in Huntsville and surrounding communities, go antique shopping, attend one of the local festivals, explore amazing local artisan shops, check out the Heritage Centre, indulge in the food culture, enjoy the very active local music scene or watch a live theatre production. You will not be disappointed. Contact the owners and let them know what your interests are, and they can help you plan your perfect getaway!
Whether it's spring time with all the maple syrup activities, summer with its land and water pursuits, the stunning colours of fall as leaves ready to drop, or a winter wonderland of fun, the Legacy Log Cabin is ideally set-up as your home base.+ More
