Muskoka island cottage

This is on an island on Lake Joseph. The cottage is on a hill over the water and is largely hidden by trees. It is comprised of several buildings situated around an irregular courtyard which has been cut from the  rock. The building exterior is stained very dark as opposed to the interior which is of a light, natural basswood.

The boathouse is formed of a simple extending gable and shed dormers which open up the living space on the upper level.
