Scott Transforms a Pine-Filled Project Into a Picturesque Rental Retreat

Tara-Lee and Bryan bought a beautiful piece of land on Ontario’s Trent Lakes about 25-years ago. Since then, they’ve cleared the land and built a cottage with a gorgeous view. They’ve rarely used the vacation home so they’ve decided to rent it out instead. But with an unclear front door, an unfinished basement and a design that was brimming with too much pine, this cottage and its owners needed help. Enter Scott McGillivray, designer Debra Salmoni and the Vacation House Rules team. See how they took this piney place and transformed it into a Hawk-inspired retreat with serious rental income potential.

Scott’s Vacation House Rules airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada. It is also available on the new Global TV App, and on STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels. HGTV Canada is available through all major TV service providers.
