How Scott Turns a Time-Warped Cottage Into a Chic Retro Retreat

Everyone loves a good throwback, but – when it comes to your vacation home – it has to be up to today’s standards. That stuck-in-the-past syndrome was a major setback for one brother-sister duo: The Wasaga Beach cottage they’d inherited was trapped in the 1960s and in serious need of a modern revival. Using his vacation house rules as his guide, contractor and real estate expert Scott McGillivray transformed the outdated space into a chic retro-themed retreat that vacationers will be lining up to rent now – and in the future.

Watch Scott’s Vacation House Rules on HGTV.ca, now also available through STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels, or with the new Global TV app when you sign-in with your TV service provider details. HGTV is also available through all major TV service providers.
