Building Memories

Our properties are built with your personal, family and generational enjoyment in mind.

Embark on your cottage adventure with over 40 years of experience in lakefront design and construction. The memories will make themselves.


Muskoka cottages are world-renowned for their unique style. We continue build on this legacy, uniting traditional features with elements of modern design.


We have perfected the art of boathouse design, with our original structures now recognized as the “Muskoka” boathouse.


Docks form the foundation for our boathouses, decks and screened-in porches. We offer steel & crib dock design, engineering, permitting, and construction.


In any build, we use natural landscape as inspiration. Integrating cottage and landscape design produces a seamless property that balances beauty and utility.

Pioneering Cottage Culture

Englishman William Mortimer arrived in Muskoka in 1876. Granted a plot of land on Lake Muskoka, he was the first of many Mortimer’s to shape the culture and aesthetic of Muskoka’s world-famous cottage country.


Generations later, Dan and Jason Mortimer carry on the family legacy as the owners of Cottage Country Builders, designing and constructing beautiful cottages that can be passed down through the families of his clients.
