Pop Goes The News — Former Toronto Maple Leafs captain Wendel Clark is opening the doors of his summer home to strangers — with deep pockets.
The Muskoka cottage on Lake Rousseau — roughly a 2.5-hour drive from Toronto — is currently listed on Airbnb for $3,986 CAD a night.
With a minimum stay of two nights required, Clark’s fans have to pony up $7,972 to enjoy the property. Since the home can accommodate 15 people, the cost is only $532 per person for a weekend stay.
“When I’m away from the rink and looking to escape the hustle of the city, I love heading up north,” the 49-year-old explains in a message on the website.
“Hope you enjoy the place and I’m excited to welcome you.”
According to Clark, proceeds from the rental of the cottage will be donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
The main cottage and four guest cottages boast 10 bedrooms and at least 8 bathrooms. There’s a state-of-the-art kitchen, pool table, and lots of space for entertaining.
There is also 200 feet of waterfront for swimming and fishing as well as a pair of boat slips.
Pets are welcome but there’s no smoking and “events or parties” are not allowed.
Clark’s other house rules are somewhat more cheeky: “No mini sticks in the house,” “Zamboni parking is permitted,” and “Help yourself to anything in the fridge or cupboards, just don’t touch the Captain Crunch.”
Perhaps most importantly, “moustache trimming is allowed, shaving is not.”
Clark, a native of Saskatchewan, retired from the NHL rink in 2000 after a career in which he played for six teams. He spent 13 seasons with the Maple Leafs.
“Over my 888 NHL games, I scored 367 goals, 266 assists and picked up a ‘few’ penalty minutes over the years,” he explains on the Airbnb profile.
Celebrities with summer homes in the Muskoka region include Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Martin Short, Cindy Crawford, Kevin O’Leary, and Shania Twain.
