This stunning post and beam cottage, on one acre of land on tranquil Echo Lake, with a gentle sloping lawn to a generous sized hard packed sandy beach, is a rare find in the district of Muskoka. The view out across the lake is picture perfect from most anywhere in the cottage but especially true from the covered deck, the screened-in Muskoka room and the lakeside fire pit on the beach.
The interior of the 3 level, 3 bedroom, 2,100 sq. ft. cottage is uncluttered and well laid out with beautiful contrasting rich wood accents and soft pastel painted rooms. The upper level has two tastefully decorated lake-facing bedrooms, with a 3 piece bathroom and a welcoming claw-foot bathtub to soak in after a long day of fun in the sun.
The main level has a country cozy feel with a lake facing kitchen and living room with wood stove. There is a walk-out from the living room to the large semi wrap-around upper deck with both covered and open sitting areas to enjoy spectacular lake views while dining or relaxing with a good book.
The lower level has a lake facing bunk bedroom, a spacious rec room with billiard table and a walk-out to a pristine Muskoka room with lounge chairs and comfortable rocking chairs. This is the place to be on those hot summer afternoons when you want to escape the sun but enjoy the outdoors from a breezy screened-in retreat!
With such a large level waterfront lawn and a fantastic lakeside beach with over 200 ft. of water frontage, kids both young and old will enjoy hours of playtime on both land and water. The spring-fed lake is quiet and clean, perfect for early morning dips and late afternoon refreshing swims. Be sure to take the rowboat out and try your hand at small mouth bass fishing that gravitate to the rocky shorelines. With 2 kayaks, head out with a family member or friend and explore the lakes many bays. As evening comes to a close there will be no better way to end your day than by the fire pit on the beach, roasting marshmallows and reminiscing about the days adventures! Cottage life at its best…what are you waiting for?!
