NEWLY LISTED - JULY 2017

Looking for a tranquil and private retreat for you and your family in prime cottage country? Then look no further! Welcome to this stunning 2,500 sq. ft., 2 level, 4 bedroom cottage, nestled on 5.5 acres of well treed land on peaceful Hesners Lake in Muskoka.

The owners had had a cottage on a nearby lake but were looking for more privacy and being a builder, the opportunity to scout out the most desirable settings made the chore a little easier. Still, it took some time, but they had the vision, even on a rainy day, when they came upon this gem of a location!

Architecturally designed and built by the owners, it was a labour of love with immense detail to attention and quality. From the beautiful vaulted and beamed pine ceilings in the main living areas to the wide pine wood flooring throughout and not one but two floor to ceiling stone fireplaces, one in the great room and one in the Muskoka room.

The entire cottage is a fabulous mix of cottage chic comfortable furnishings with a combination of gorgeous chinked log cabin walls and white washed pine walls, reclaimed wood beam mantles on the fireplaces perfectly contrasted against a beautiful chandelier in the great room and slate floors in the kitchen and mud room. Every room has its own welcoming flair and ambiance with tasteful furnishing and décor accents.

The open concept kitchen/dining/living area all face out to the lake with large picture windows framing the fabulous view. The kitchen is a joy to prepare meals in with a Viking gas stove, stainless steel appliances, soapstone counters, a large double bib sink, a kitchen island and a breakfast bar. Enjoy all meals at the large harvest table in the dining room with the serene lake as your backdrop.

As gorgeous as the great room is, the owners say the Muskoka room is where everyone seems to gravitate to. The impressive room, just off of the living/dining/kitchen area, is “an any time of day” spot to relax and unwind in the comfy couch and chairs where you will feel one with nature, taking in views of the lake and surrounding trees through a wrap-around wall of windows.

The 2 levels are well laid out for a large family or 2 small families. The master bedroom with a 2-piece ensuite bathroom is on the main level with the peaceful view of the lake from its own large picture windows and makes for a great escape after a long day of cottage vacation activity. Across the way is every young child’s and young cousin’s dream bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds and a bed in between. A 3-piece bathroom, mudroom and laundry room round out the main level.

The upper level has 2 spacious bedrooms, a spa-like bathroom, complete with a claw foot soaker tub, and a large loft family entertainment room.

For lakeside enjoyment, there is so much to choose from. With a southwest exposure there is sun on the dock all day long for the sun worshippers and for those seeking shade there is a small lakeside stone patio with seating or a lakeside hammock to sneak in an afternoon nap.

With an abundance of non motorized water toys at your disposal, head out onto the lake for a paddle, seated or standing! There is a small hard packed sand area between the stone patio and dock, ideal for the young ones to safely splash and play, while the older kids can tire themselves out swimming back and forth from the dock to the swim raft.

After a BBQ dinner and making smores and playing guitar around the fire pit, the owner’s favourite place to end the day is on the dock watching the mesmerizing sunsets. As dusk turns into dark, lay back and watch the sky fill up with a blanket of stars and if you’re really lucky, the only sound you will hear is the haunting call of the loons. It just doesn’t get any better!
