Fiddlehead Mountain
An Exclusive Haven in Huntsville, Muskoka

This truly exceptional 120-acre private mountainside estate is located just minutes away from the town of Huntsville in the heart of Muskoka, Ontario’s premier recreational playground.

The property at Fiddlehead Mountain features its own private, 5-run ski hill, with a refurbished and up-to-date lift and snow groomer, and a 2,6400 sq. ft. light-filled chalet that has expansive views of the surrounding countryside. A large pond, a 50 ft. swimming pool, and accessible backwood trails make this exceptional property an exclusive and rare four-season enclave in Muskoka.

The Residence: Luxurious Spaces

Resting on the mid-mountain hillside, this recently built chalet is the main residence on this spectacular property. The chalet features 2,640 sq. ft. of light-filled luxury, including a gourmet kitchen, 5 bedrooms, and a fully-equipped lower level suite of rooms complete with kitchenette and a desirable wine cellar. A grand Muskoka room leads out to a private deck and has soaring cathedral ceilings lined elegantly in natural pine. A generous wrap-around terrace provides easy access to outdoor relaxation and incredible views, especially when enjoying the elevated hot tub. Can I say that the wine cellar is climate controlled?

The Grounds: Outbuildings and Amenities

The lush and beautifully maintained mountainside grounds feature massive Fir trees, a large pond, and immaculately cared for backcountry trails. A pool house with pump room and a separate change room provide comfort when relaxing by, or swimming in, the 20 x 50 ft. in-ground pool. 

A large 30 x 30 ft. heated workshop provides an insulated area to store equipment and toys. Included with the property is a 4-wheel drive Gator, a Brush Hog with a 4-ft. swath, and an air-conditioned excavator. There is also a professional 5-ft. swath snow blower. Are these vehicles included?

A heated Warming Hut at the base of the hill houses the modern lift operating electronics and also includes convenient washroom facilities. Nearby is a covered gazebo with a steel fire pit that is available to make après skiing cozy and warm. 

The Potential: A Company Retreat or Commercial Use

Although Fiddlehead Mountain would make an extraordinary family retreat, the potential for development exists. This historic property was once home to the Huntsville Ski Club where Olympians like Nancy Green trained, and residents of the surrounding area enjoyed their first ski hill when it opened it as Steven’s Hill over 70 years ago. The lot and its ski runs have the potential, with appropriate zoning, to be severed and turned once again into a community hub.

Fiddlehead Mountain is a year-round private estate whose name was inspired by the incredible number of blooming fiddleheads that appear like a carpet of green over the springtime mountainside. 

You can enjoy Fiddlehead Mountain at any time of year!
