Overview

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9
Balm Beach, Tiny, Ontario
FALL SALE: take 20% off of given rates!

One of the first "weeHouses" designed by Geoffrey Warner of Alchemy Architects, this modern cottage has been featured often in the design press, including the Toronto Star in 2006.

Nestled in 70’ mature red pines, with both good daylight and privacy, this modern cottage is only about 100 yards from the beach path to a beautiful semi-private white sand swimming beach with shallow crystal-clear water. We like to cook, so there is a full kitchen with a gas range.

There is no high speed internet, but there is decent cell phone coverage.

There are large tables, a gas fireplace, huge deck with Muskoka Chairs, a screen porch, Badminton court, a rowboat, and standup paddleboard.

We looked around when we first arrived and knew we'd hit pay dirt. The kitchen is well-equipped and there are even votive candle holders and candles there to use if we'd forgotten our own. The position of the cottage in amidst a forest of coniferus trees was sublime. We'd certainly return.

Location is nice, nestled in woods. Very refreshing waking up in the morning. Very well equipped for kids, they just felt at home. Lot of stuff provided for the beach, came in handy. Balm beach was very nice, just 10 ins drive. Definitely recommend and would like to come back soon.

The location gave us the privacy we were looking for steps from the beach. For an 86 yr.old mother she was unable to fathom the comfort and beauty. The dog and cat were calm and quiet. I just wished I could stay longer. All the conveniences of home were available at the cottage as well as nearby the cottage. We will definitely be heading back to watch the sunsets every night.

Spent a long fall weekend with my wife and 2 young kids. While it rained most of the time, we really enjoyed the cottage and space. Weehouses are prefab; but certainly will change most peoples opinions of what prefab can be...this one is owned by the designer who was very friendly and accessible, if needed. I was surprised Geoffrey didn't have any of the design or install photos displayed? The main house is separate from...
