Scott McGillivray Gives a Family Cottage a Luxe Muskoka Makeover

Location is important, but – if you want your vacation home to reach its full potential – it’s not always everything. In order to keep their vacation house in the family, a mother and daughter were struggling to find a way to make their dated cottage as appealing as its prime Muskoka setting. To help the property compete with high-end summer rentals, real estate expert and contractor Scott McGillivray came to the rescue – using his vacation house rules to completely modernize the space and turn it into a must-rent vacation listing.

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.
