Renting Muskokan Cottage
I'm looking to rent a Muskokan Cottage in a couple months. More specifically around Gravenhurst, Port Carling, Bala, Bracebridge, etc.
I've been to CottageCountry.com and have found a few places.... but not too many. The one I really wanted has been booked solid for July, so I can no longer get it.
Does anyone know any decent websites for renting cottages in Northern Ontario?
Better yet, does anyone have a Muskokan Cottage they would like to rent out with a nice CMF Discount?
This is what I'm looking for...

We own a cottage but use it for our own family.Most of our neighbors who rent cottages will only do weekly as they get max ROI and from experience they have same people who come year after year so difficult to get openings.
Definitely is difficult to get openings.
I don't mind paying for the entire week, but I rather not have to...
you want to rent a cottage for less than a week?

it's over by Algonquin Pk.- they have rooms as well as cabins, and the rooms are very cottage like.
Here's our room from 1 stay.. we kayaked the oxtongue river for miles and miles.
Thanks, hystat. Looks like a nice place!
Yes, I found it too difficult (after receiving numerous emails from land owners) that you cannot book a weekend. (Whoops!)
At least now I know, as I have never done this before.
I have changed my dates, so I will now be going just before the off season for an entire week, most likely from June 9-16. Hopefully the water won't be too cold!
We have a property there and here is how it is for a cottage owner in a high demand area.The first year we owned it we had a couple friends and family up there and really enjoyed it just having our family there.Second summer the friends and family assume they get to com visit at least one weekend , they tell the other friends and family how great the cottage is , how great the boat and our private dock is so more want to come.
We tried to let everyone come one time and that meant we had only 3-4 weekends just us and our 2 kids.
Last year was our 4th summer and we had 2-3 families wanting to come up at same time and what killed it for us was when our niece showed up with her friends and their two kids on a weekend where we had invited her brother and his wife and their 2 kids.
So after that weekend we just told everyone sorry but we bought this place for quite a bit of money and we don't mind enjoying it with you at times but this is where we go to relax ,enjoy the peace and quiet and the boat for our family.
Labor day weekend we asked the couple beside us and their adult daughter to come sit on our deck with us so we could tell everyone sorry we have guest this weekend don't come lol.Owning a cottage is sometimes a curse
No help here, but that's a great site.
I've had issues in the past with a different site giving me the run-around because they didn't want to rent to non-families.
