I'm a cottager and so is my family. We have been cottaging on McKay Lake for over 40 years. With the purchase of another cottage on the lake we wanted to share with others the beauty of our Muskoka experience. But we want to do so in a respectful way by being mindful of who we choose to rent to. Our lake isn't small, but it is intimate, as we know virtually every other cottager. We want to ensure their enjoyment AND our reputation isn't negatively effected
