Many people argue that the best time to rent out a cabin is in the winter. The perfect time to curl up with a nice book and a mug of something warm to drink, right near a big window in your cabin where you can appreciate the snow falling from inside.

Others argue summer is the best time, or even spring, when it's warm enough to take advantage of all of the waterfront activities you could possibly want such as boating, paddleboarding, and even taking a dip in the waters. 

The underrated season for cabin renting would more than likely be the fall, when the leaves begin to change colours and there is a beautiful sea of orange, yellow, and reds that open up to stunning bright blue lakes. 

We've come up with a list of four amazing spots in Ontario's cottage country which are perfect for renting out the cabin of your dreams right as the weather gets chilly enough for sweaters and beautiful views, but not too cold for some outdoor activities like hiking. 


The historic Roselawn lodge in Bala is one that is absolutely loved by locals and visitors alike. Rich in history, you can truly fall in love with the surroundings of the area and all it has to offer. 

Within close walking distance to Bala's beloved Museum and even the annual cranberry festival, there is even more that is offered here than a gorgeous lakeside cabin. 

Fall in love with this amazing narrow stretch of Lake Muskoka during the peak of the fall season, as the city of Bala and all of the beauty encompassing it including the sea of trees transform into vibrant bursts of colours. 

Winsome Silver Lake

Near the loved Lake Joseph which is popular with visitors from all over is the hidden gem of Winsome Silver Lake. If you're looking for a more private and serene fall experience, this is the perfect cabin location for you. 

This area offers a large cabin atmosphere for those looking to bring a group of friends or a big group of family members, with large cathedral ceilings which make this cabin site stand out vastly from the rest. 

Combining the charm of the rustic beauty of cottage living, with the modern appeal and finishes of a cabin you could stay in for weeks and a large, second story walk-out porch, you're truly in for a treat. 

Legacy Log Cabin

Both a beautiful and affordable cabin home that is simply perfect for a romantic getaway. The Legacy Log Cabin is just 15 minutes from downtown Huntsville, with a wraparound porch and an outdoor swing, you get to take in everything that nature has to offer here. 

Vaulted ceilings and gorgeous, oversized windows make for the perfect picturesque views as the colourful leaves fall gently outside. With a cliff face view and a never ending vastness of vibrant trees, you're in to make some amazing memories. 

Right near Legacy Maple Farm, you can also and enjoy the 100% pure maple syrup or the surrounding hiking trails that line the area.
