BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS! We are excited to announce our award-winning property is featured in two beautiful coffee table books. 'Living on Vacation: Contemporary Houses for Tranquil Living' (2020) published by Phaidon and 'Homes For Our Time: Contemporary Houses around the World' (2019) by Philip Jodidio, published by Taschen.

AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM SET IN YOUR OWN PRIVATE WILDERNESS. Luxurious Canadian lakeside living comes to the heart of the Haliburton Highlands with this international architect-designed gem beautifully situated in the heart of the Canadian Wilderness. Featured in Architectural Digest magazine, and winner of the American Institute of Architecture (AIA) National Housing Award 2018, the AIA Merit Award 2017 (and more!) our beautiful four-season property thoughtfully fuses modern master craftsmanship with indoor-outdoor connectivity. Completed three years ago, the unique hand-crafted wood structure offers floor-to-ceiling windows, wood-burning granite fireplaces (inside and out), a soaring two-storey ceiling, fir beams and heated hardwood floors throughout. The Bear Stand (named after an old hunting stand found on the property) fuses the traditional cabin experience with the best in contemporary design.

Our 3,400 sq ft four-season, four-bedroom, three-bathroom cabin sleeps 10 (adults and kids).
