10 envy-worthy muskoka boathouses

Muskoka has become known as a place where even the boathouses are larger than the full-time homes of average families. Not familiar with Muskoka? It is part of Ontario, Canada cottage country and has been referred to as “the Hamptons of the North.” From the aerial view below, you should get a sense of the scale of some of the boathouses that dot the landscape; these structures are clearly meant for much more than storing boats.

In honour of the Canada Day long weekend of cottage festivities, here are ten over the top boathouses that would undoubtedly make great cottages all on their own.

Am I alone in offering to house sit any or all of these boathouses?
