About the ListingWelcome to Holiday House, Beaumaris—Muskoka history at your doorstep. Built at the turn of the 20th Century, this fully restored, five-bedroom regal gem on Lake Muskoka is the epitome of lakeside grandeur: Stone fireplace. Sculpted gardens. Tennis court. Screened “Muskoka Porch” with sweeping views of a wide blue lake, granite shores, towering pine trees and magnificent sunsets.
Situated on Tondern Island, also known as historic Beaumaris, Holiday House holds the grace of a bygone era. Settled a century ago by wealthy industrialists, Beaumaris is Old Muskoka—fondly referred to as Canada’s Hamptons. It’s a place of parties and summer memories: speeding by in glossy boats, skipping the waves on wooden water skis, sipping cocktails at five on the dock as the golden sun sets.
Holiday House was solidly constructed in the early 1900s and has since been restored to its original grandeur. With its integrity intact—stone fireplace, coffered ceilings, natural wood throughout—this imperial lady is nostalgia mixed with modern amenities. There are five bedrooms and six baths, including an entire wing dedicated to a master bedroom with its very own private porch. The cottage’s eat-in kitchen is warm and inviting, the formal dining room is anchored by nine-foot doors that open onto a viewing balcony, and the wrap-around porch has multiple seating areas for lively games and conversation. Close but not too close: a three-bedroom guest cottage that's fully winterized.
By the water’s edge: a five-slip, two-storey boathouse containing magnificent boats crafted a century ago, plus extra space for your own powerboats and jetskis. On top of the boathouse: 1,200-square-feet of gabled private living space, ideal to house cottage guests... or teenagers! Docks and covered seating areas are ideal for summer afternoons by the water. The estate’s private tennis court is always ready for a match, or take a boat tour in one of the most beautiful restored wooden launches in the boathouse. "Our cup of Tea" Don’t miss an opportunity to invest in Holiday House, an Old Muskoka property that’s fully upgraded and steeped in grand tradition—they don’t come our way often.
