The Main Lodge
The Main Lodge is our largest and most popular cottage. With five bedrooms and four bathrooms, it has plenty of space for families or multiple families wanting to vacation together. The very large living room offers over 1200 sq. feet of space to lounge by the fire, enjoy a meal at the dinner table or even move the furniture off to the side and have a talent show! (A favorite pastime of our guests). The large verandah has screened-in and open sections, both with views of the lake. It's no wonder the Main Lodge is booked solid every Summer! (We almost feel guilty telling you about it!)
The Annex always brings back fond memories! Before we had our house built nextdoor to the hotel property, my family and I would spend our Summers on the second floor of the Annex. We will never forget watching summer storms sweep across the lake, playing baseball on the front lawn or heading down for a quick dip before bed. The upstairs is now used exclusively for storage, but the ground floor is ready for your family to make their own special memories! The large front porch provides great views of the Lake, while the living room with its Muskoka stone fireplace is a great place to catch-up on some quality family time.
The Dining Room
The Dining Room is our second largest cottage and often still serves its original purpose. In fact, every Fall, my family rents the Main Lodge and Dining Room to celebrate Thanksgiving. We use the adjacent Main Lodge to socialize, play games and tell stories and the Dining Room to enjoy our meals and play bingo.
Interested in starting your own family tradition or family reunion in the Spring or Fall? I am happy to give you more details on how my family runs our weekend - we've been doing it for 60 years! In July and August, the Dining Room books up early, so if you're looking for a Cottage with room to spread out don't wait too long!
Note:The Dining Room has two seating areas with couches; however, additional tables are available by request to accommodate large group meals (Group setup Example #1, Example #2)
The Jenner Cottage is named after my great grandparents James and Fanny Jenner. Formerly known as "The Kitchen", I spent many long hours in this building helping my mother and aunt prepare meals for our guests. I'll never forget the smell of my Aunt Doris's apple-pie cooling on the windowsill. (Nor will I forget the sting of her wooden spoon whenever she caught me sneaking a piece behind her back!)
Renovated into a four bedroom, two bathroom unit with 1700 sq. feet spread across two floors, the Jenner Apartment has plenty of space for two families of four to share. I can't promise you the Jenner will smell of fresh apple-pie when you arrive, but I can promise you that you'll have no trouble making your own special memories here!
The Little White Cottage
The Little White Cottage is the original home of my great grandfather, Robert Jenner. Tucked away in a forested area of our property, this cute three bedroom cabin is great for families looking for a bit more privacy. The spacious screened-in porch is perfect for enjoying a barbecued dinner in the open air! On cooler August nights, start a fire in the wood-burning fireplace. By being close to the forest edge, the Little White Cottage is one of the best places to spot wildlife!
The Lower Dance Hall
The Lower Dance Hall is a favourite among our guests who possess a dramatic flair! The kitchen area used to be a stage on which the guests put on plays, recited poetry or performed in talent shows. Although the stage's primary purpose has changed, many of our guests still take advantage of the raised platform to release their creative energy! The Lower Dance Hall is the second closest cottage to the Lake and has a great view, so I am not being dramatic when I say "you'll love staying at this cottage!"
The Upper Dance Hall
Located on the hill that leads down to the beach the Upper Dance Hall takes advantage of its height by offering excellent views of the lake! Getting to the beach is a cinch and can be measured in mere seconds. (best of all it's downhill!) I highly recommend leaving the bedroom windows open overnight to enjoy the gentle breeze that blows in off the lake. Nothing is better for sleeping than the fresh scent of pine and spruce and the soothing sounds of water lapping onto shore.
The Lakeside Cottage
Just feet from the water's edge, the Lakeside Cottage is one of our most popular rentals for small families! Start your day with a hot cup of coffee on the porch and take in the tranquil beauty of a Muskoka morning. Throughout the day, enjoy the convenience of never having to leave the beach - everything is only a few steps away! In the evenings, pour yourself a glass of wine and marvel at the stunning sunsets from the best seat in the house!
The Ice Palace
The Ice Palace was where my Mother stayed for the entire Summer when she still ran the resort. Later on, it was renovated into a two bedroom unit to entice my children to bring their families to Clyffe House for summer vacations. Unfortunately, they can't stay for the entire summer, (work gets in the way of everything!) so for the time remaining, this cozy cottage can be yours to enjoy! My family loves staying here and I think yours will to!
