Rumney’s Retreat on Rebecca Lake

Limberlost Road is a beautiful drive fifteen minutes from Huntsville or fifteen minutes to Dwight and Algonquin Park. The central location takes you into the beauty of nature and yet allows you to maintain your connection for supplies and entertainment.

When we first entered the cottage we instantly felt its warmth and welcoming atmosphere. “Rumney’s Retreat” is tucked away in the Muskoka wilderness. It faces South West so there is sunshine all day and gorgeous sunsets which adds to the pleasant decor. The cottage is immaculate in its rustic beauty. Rebecca Lake can be seen from all the windows. It is a special lake because it is spring fed and is 13.6 km in perimeter.

The cottage has all the amenities for a pleasant stay. The living area is divided into two sections with one part allowing you to curl up with a book and a glass of wine while the other side has a wood-burning fireplace which is very cozy on a cool day.

You can enjoy your meals in the Muskoka Room, the living room or you can BBQ on the wrap around deck.  There is a sandy beach area and a deeper area by the floating dock.  This cottage is ideal for your quiet holiday away from your busy life. I recommend its natural and peaceful setting to just relax and enjoy.
