Plus, a couple more ski country stunners
Perhaps the best (or maybe most challenging) thing about shopping for a recreational property is the sheer variety. If a contemporary style chalet isn’t exactly your speed, there are various uniquely designed homes to consider, namely log cabins (like the two beautiful ones at right). Whether you’re in the market for something a little more secluded or something with a lot of character, you’re guaranteed to find something beautiful.
A little history lesson
How about this for a story? 20 years ago, two 1870 log cabins were transplanted to a Collingwood property, then combined to make the home you see now. Situated on five acres of land, this $1,595,000 home features an open kitchen area with 19th century Welsh cabinets and a large, screened-in porch that’s ideal for summer dinners. 495395 2 Grey Road
When in Caledon
Located in idyllic Caledon Hills, this $749,000 log home was built with the nature lover in mind; the Credit River fronts the house, and the Bruce Trail is accessible from the rear. Inside, the dual floor-to-ceiling fireplaces and the exotic African flooring and staircase make up the place’s highlights. 1511 Forks of the Credit Road
