Our History Continued...
The massive stone fireplace that anchors the Great Room was designed by the owners and is meant to invoke the form of the inukshuk – the iconic shape of Northern Canada. Constructed by craftsman and local legend, Bob Hicks, every one of the quarried pink granite stones was and hand-selected, shaped, and set by the mason. The old-world craftsmanship is evident in the finished product.
Although many of the materials and fixtures had to be imported from “down South”, most of the finishing of Lulu’s repose was left primarily to local tradesmen and the project was managed by the owners.
Since it was finished in 2006, Lulu’s Repose has played host to innumerable family gatherings, weddings, anniversaries, family vacations, business meetings, and special occasions. Also, the cottage was the backdrop for several episodes of the HDNet television show Get Out! when it made its 2010 debut in Canada. Recently, Lulu’s Repose was chosen to appear in Our Homes Muskoka magazine.
We look forward to your visit and hope that you too will become part of the history of Lulu’s Repose.
