 Four Winds Cottage on Four Mile Lake






Sleeps 8, 3 Bedrooms + “Nook” Bed, 2 Bathrooms, Well Treed, Private Waterfront Lot, Child/Elderly Friendly, WiFi, Large South Facing Dock, Bay Swimming, South-West Facing Cottage, Beautiful Sunsets, Fire Pit, Cell Reception, Great Fishing, Stand-Up Paddle Boards, Kayaks, Water Mat, Indoor Fireplace, Muskoka Porch, Washer/Dryer, Dishwasher, Winter Accessible, Pet Friendly (TBD)

Four Winds Cottage is a modern, beautifully designed, 4-season cottage on pristine and peaceful Four Mile Lake with everything that you would need to vacation! The property is well-treed and private, making it feel like you are really out in the wild. There are lots of places to lounge and relax at the cottage; on the Muskoka porch, at the outdoor firepit, on the lake facing deck (those sunsets!), or on the back deck.

The bay makes the property extra private with great water for kids to swim. Because the lake is smaller, the water warms up very quickly making it perfect for swimming. Great for fishing, the lake has smallmouth bass and musky. For those looking to work from home while at the lake (now more than ever!), this is the place for you with all the comforts of home without the hustle and bustle. Four Winds cottage is the right place for your holiday!

Shallow swimming

Please note: this is not a cottage you can cannon ball off the dock from! Waterfront can be very shallow (depending on time of year) and weedy/mucky.  Water shoes are suggested. We encourage all guests to float/boat out to the larger lake from the bay for deeper swimming. A large water mat is available to allow for lounging in the water off the dock. Also, to note if bringing a boat, the bay is shallow and the north part of the lake is very rocky.

Canoe, kayak and paddleboat

Very private

Cottage faces southwest directly onto bay, but dock faces south directly to lake (beautiful view!)

Although set back in the trees (feels like a treehouse), it gets the most wonderful light in the late morning and afternoon

The cottage was lovely – lots of spaces to sit, read and drink a glass of wine. Rainy days could be spent in the screened in porch. Kitchen was small but well stocked. Bedrooms were very comfortable (note that master bedroom is open to the lower floor). Easy walk down to the lake, water was very still and calm. Beautiful view but you need to sit on the dock to see it. Sam was quick to respond to any questions and refunded our security deposit quickly. Would definitely recommend! -Emma K. (Jul/Aug 2022)


Our family had a wonderful stay at Four Winds Cottage on Four Mile Lake. The cottage was very, very clean with all the amenities a family needs for a week long retreat. The property was fantastic with a large dock area, several boats for use, large fire pit and ample parking. The cottage interior was extremely comfortable, with an indoor fireplace, comfortable beds, appliance-stocked kitchen and a Muskoka netted porch with couches and a table to play games and relax and enjoy the feeling of being high up in the forest. The BBQ, WiFi and TVs worked great, there were board games and other thoughtful touches and it was dog-friendly. The owners gave clear instructions and were available for any questions we had. We enjoyed hiking in the area, and were close enough to the towns when needed. Overall, it was a great family vacation!  -Linda H. (Oct 2021)


The cottage was well equipped. The waterfront was nice especially the dock. Screened in porch was well used during our stay for dining and lounging. Awesome place to spend time with the family. The host was very easy to deal with. Being pet friendly was great! Would definitely recommend this location to escape from the city! John B. (Sep 2021)


We had a wonderful time at the Four Winds cottage. The cottage itself is beautiful, modern, clean and well-equipped. We were beyond comfortable. There were many water activities to keep us busy and active. We enjoyed nearby hiking trails and the firepit in the evening. While we experienced fantastic weather while we there, the one day of rain allowed us to snuggle in the screened in porch and enjoy the twinkly lights while we read and played games. While we had no reason to reach out for any assistance during our stay, I had the upmost confidence that our concerns would have been responded to immediately given our experience in booking the cottage.  A wonderful two weeks! -Michelle (Aug 2021)
