The Place: A 12-acre property on Lake Rosseau with a four-bedroom main cottage, a three-slip boathouse and a separate building for a gym or workshop.
Bragging Rights: The bright, beachy great room is a perfect hangout for grey and drizzly days. Your only worry will be whether “qi” and “xi” are Scrabble-approved words.
Big Selling Point: The two-bedroom boathouse feels like a private villa in a pricey resort. The sun deck has Instagram-worthy views, while the windows next to the soaker tub will have guests feeling like they’re floating in the lake.
Possible Deal Breaker: Southwestern exposure means beautifully sunny days. It als means you’ll need to invest in some oversize umbrellas for friends and family with Edward Cullen-ish complexions.
