This lovely 2,000 sq. ft., 2 level, 4 bedroom cottage sits elevated from the shores of beautiful Bigwind Lake on over an acre of well-treed property in a private setting.
The interior of the cottage’s main level is bright and spacious with the open concept kitchen/dining/living area all facing out to the lake with a wall of floor to ceiling windows offering serene tree- top views out to the deck and lake. The furnishings are cottage country comfortable complimented with soaring cathedral ceilings and gorgeous engineered wood floors.
The 3 bedrooms on this level are all tucked into the shaded back, making for a quiet and welcomed nights sleep after a long day of fun in the sun.
The lower level has a 4th bedroom, a 2nd bathroom, a laundry room and a large family room with a wall of lake facing windows and a walk-out to to the lower covered deck. The upper level will cater to all family meals with a choice of in or out dining while the lower level will be the place to gather for entertainment with a 55” TV, Bell satellite, a selection of DVD’s and board games. The cottage is winterized and has all the utilities necessary for living comfortably in the cooler months including a wood burning wood stove in the family room.
The expansive deck will be the place to start your mornings with cup of coffee in hand and with a northwest exposure, head down to the large dock and 375 feet of natural shoreline with full sun from noon until sunset.
Bigwind Lake is crystal clear as it is spring fed and one of the cleanest lakes in Muskoka, fabulous for swimming. Two -thirds of the lake are Crown Land and Wilderness Park and completely uninhabited and therefore fewer cottages than is found on the larger Muskoka Lakes. With 4 kayaks, an inflatable row boat and a paddleboat at your disposal, be sure to get out on the water and explore the lake. With very little powerboat traffic due to the 10 HP restriction, this is truly one of the best Muskoka Lakes to paddle on and enjoy nature and serenity. For fishing enthusiasts, you can find an abundance of fishing spots on the lake populated with Lake Trout, Speckled Trout, Small Mouth Bass and Perch.
Centrally located from Gravenhurst, Bracebridge and Huntsville, take a day trip or two to embrace the charm of these cottage country towns.
But the pièce de résistance at the cottage is the stunning sunsets, so be sure to be back in time to take it all in with a favourite beverage in hand on the dock and end the evening around the fire pit as you plan your next day’s adventures!
