Our Design Team’s Take on the Modern Log Cottage

Nestled among the trees, on a quiet peaceful lake, you’ll find a one-of-a-kind custom Muskoka cottage designed by our team at Lischkoff Build Design.

After meeting with our clients and hearing their vision for their custom built dream home, we knew how important it was that their lakeside cottage was a place of solitude, centered around nature, with plenty of space to welcome their children and grandchildren on weekends and during the holidays.

Designed with the rugged yet breathtaking landscape of Muskoka in mind, our team finished the exterior in a natural wood with a rustic finish — allowing the exterior to blend seamlessly with it’s surroundings, while still standing out in an understated, yet beautiful, way. Our modernized take on the traditional log home.

Upon entering this Tasso Lake Retreat, guests are met with an open concept layout, a luxurious kitchen, a handcrafted stone fireplace, and soaring ceilings finished in a beautiful Hemlock wood. A home designed with lakefront living in mind… a place where friends and family can gather around the large island, cooking and laughing together, while looking out at the sun setting over the lake. In the morning, an abundance of natural light streams in through the tall windows adding an additional layer of inviting warmth to the space.

A home designed with lakefront living in mind… a place where friends and family can gather around…

And we can’t forget the details! The kitchen features white custom cabinetry, Wolf appliances, leathered marble, and a pantry off the kitchen for extra storage. The master bedroom is situated off the main living room — designed with a full walk in closet and master ensuite finished in white marble with soft blue cabinetry — a true space of solitude for our clients. And you can’t have a lakefront retreat without a Muskoka room, equipped for year round use, with a built in BBQ and entertaining space.

Our Tasso Lake Build is a uniquely beautiful lakefront retreat that our team was beyond grateful to be apart of. A home that will be loved by our clients and their family for many years to come.
