COVID-19 Update (June 4th)

Muskoka Soul / Soul Management Group Inc. is closely monitoring the COVID 19 situation in Ontario. As of June 5th short-term rentals are permitted to resume in Ontario.

We want to share what we are doing to ensure the health and well being of our guests.

In addition to the thorough professional cleaning that takes place during each guest group turnover, we are adding an extra level of cleaning and disinfection as a precaution and to provide additional peace of mind. Link to our Covid 19 detailed plan & procedures.

Guests benefit from full privacy and only interact with their own guest group when on site. All work is done prior to guests arriving and the time and  manpower allotted for proper cleaning has been factored. Guests receive unique access codes and greeter requirement. Guest arrival is 4PM and early arrivals cannot be given at this time.

As the owners of our 2 properties, either Bruce or Sandra will be onsite for every turn-over this summer. We will work along side our cleaning partner to ensure our standards are met, as well, we will sign a detailed check-list confirming actions taken. Booked guests will receive a direct communication on the details 2-weeks prior to arrival.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact
