About This Cottage

There’s something about enjoying an idyllic lakefront cottage experience yet being only 15 minutes from a vibrant waterside town that makes a vacation memorable. Major’s Landing offers all that and more.

The first and largest of a four-lake chain surrounding the town of Huntsville, Lake Vernon is renowned for great boating, fishing and watersports. Bring your boat and motor into town for an ice cream or to enjoy the Wednesday concert on the dock, or just paddle around the bay in the kayaks – the sparkling water awaits!

The garden slopes from the cottage down to the water and the large dock which is ideal for sitting out with a coffee in the morning or an aperitif at sunset. There’s a firepit for sitting out under the stars and plenty of lawn for just taking in the view.

The cottage has lots of space for two families sharing with two bedrooms on each floor. The main level has a living and dining area with gorgeous views, comfortable furniture and sliding doors to the deck – and a propane stove for the cooler evenings.

Downstairs you’ll find a family room with TV, table tennis and darts and board games with sliding doors to the lakefront.

Rounding out this super cottage rental package is a large screened sunroom and deck with barbecue.

While you may just want to stay around the cottage, dock and water most of your time, there’s plenty to do in the area. Huntsville is a great town with brew pubs, waterside restaurants, bakeries, and a great farmers' market on a Thursday morning (a 10 minute drive away). Take a drive out to Arrowhead Provincial Park and get some hiking in, or to Algonquin for a day of canoeing. Visit the pretty village of Rosseau on market day and have lunch in one of the great local restaurants.

In fact there’s so much to do we can’t fit it all in here, but once you book we’ll share it all in your Major’s Landing Guide.

The sandy beach is great for kids and the sand continues into the water, although the lake does start to get a little weedy from about 10 to 20 feet offshore. The weeds clear as you get further out. The depth of the water off the end of the dock is 3-4 feet depending on the time of year and therefore there is ABSOLUTELY NO DIVING off the dock.


Nearby Huntsville is the largest town in the Muskoka Region and is located in the hilly terrain of the Canadian Shield, which is dotted with many lakes, both large and small, including Lake Vernon. Due to its natural environment and natural resources, Huntsville is a thriving tourist destination drawing people from around the world. In 2011 The Toronto Star ranked the town the #1 place to take a summer trip. Huntsville also acts as the western gateway to Algonquin Provincial Park and played host to the G8 Summit in June 2010.
