Muskoka has been delighting cottagers for years with its natural beauty, picturesque lakes, and jutting granite cliffs. Not to mention the amount of activities here, including boating, the stunning golf courses, unique dining experiences, and local shopping. Most recently, the Muskoka region was listed on National Geographic’s 100 Places Than Can Change Your Child’s Life.

And that’s exactly how I fell in love with Muskoka as a child. My parents bought our first cottage on Acton Island near Bala when I was 10 years old. I spent every weekend and every summer here, even working in town for three summers as a teenager. Today, I’m still a cottager and spend as much time as I can throughout the year. I have been fortunate to enjoy so much of what Muskoka has to offer.

I have also enjoyed travelling and exploring different parts of the world. While I was away, it provided us with a unique opportunity to rent out our little piece of paradise. While the idea of renting out the cottage sounded easy enough at the beginning, it proved to be a challenging, worrisome, time-consuming process.


My Personal Touch

I started Muskoka Cottages by Marlene as a way to provide a premium cottage rental management service for cottage owners. My aim is to showcase a collection of extraordinary vacation rentals in Muskoka. First, I simplify the rental experience by providing local on-site management. I will be at your cottage to personally handle the rental process on your behalf. Secondly, I will take care of everything from the little details along with the big ones! In other words, a trusting partnership that will provide cottagers a worry-free solution to renting out their property from the city.

Conversely, for guest renters, I will simplify your rental experience by being available throughout your stay. I will make recommendations for local activities, excellent local restaurants, golf courses, spas, farmer’s markets, festivals, attractions & adventures. Additionally, I can provide concierge services, including grocery shopping, private chefs, catering, and more – all to make your vacation even more memorable!

See you soon,
