Summerholm, a piece of history in Muskoka

Summerholm is a landmark property located on Lake Joseph. The original owners first log cabin built in 1856 still stands today. The original main cottage was completed in 1894. The cottage was constructed from stone found on the property and the lumber from Lamberts saw mill located next door.

The elements of the interior design reflected the arts and crafts movement of the time and would include oak floors, ceiling beams, stained glass and dark woodwork. The main living room was two stories high with an upper gallery that was home to a large pump organ.  The owners would bring their own cow from Rosedale, Ontario so that they would have fresh milk all summer.  This beautiful and historic property has been in the same family for five generations.
