Scott McGillivray Turns an Old Cottage Into a Zen Holiday Hideaway

Ah, vacation: a chance to get away from it all so you can rest, relax and recharge. With so many weary wanderers looking for a place to catch up on their R&R, a spacious cottage on a tranquil lake should be booked up with vacation renters – but that wasn’t the case for one family’s run-down Muskoka property. To help them turn their aging cottage into a sought-after rental, real estate expert and contractor Scott McGillivray put his vacation house rules to work – and the results were totally Zen.

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.
