Scott McGillivray Transforms a Run-Down Cottage Into a Pet-Friendly Vacation Rental Paradise

In Haliburton’s sea of lakeside vacation rentals, it’s hard to get noticed – especially if your cottage is only half-renovated and looking a bit “ruff.” Using his vacation house rules, real estate expert and contractor Scott McGillivray helped a pet-loving couple transform their cottage into a must-book, pet-friendly vacation rental complete with a gazebo, solar-powered bunkhouse and custom mini dog cottage.

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.
