Welcome to "Woodcot Shores"! This beautifully appointed 3,400 sq. ft., 2 level, 5 bedroom cottage/home is located on much sought-after Lake of Bays and can be enjoyed year round.
The name Woodcot was the owner’s father’s home in Northern Ireland, his birth country. In 2013 the owners removed many trees, beautified the beach and built their dream home/cottage on their acre of heaven and gave it the name of Woodcot Shores.
The interior of the cottage is meticulously maintained with every attention to detail being paid. Settle into cottage life with all the comforts of home (and so much more!). The open concept kitchen/dining/living room, with sun filled natural light from the abundance of lake facing windows and gorgeous cathedral ceilings, makes for a perfect location for a variety of family gatherings. Whether you are preparing meals, dining or relaxing around on the comfortable furniture in front of the stone gas fireplace, the spectacular lake views are always with you.
From the dining room there is a walk-out to the upper deck with a BBQ overlooking the stunning waterfront. To the side of the dining room is a large fabulous screened-in Muskoka room, the ideal spot to retreat to for after dinner beverages or to relax in on inclement days while still feeling one with nature.
Also located on the main level is a 2-piece bathroom, a laundry room and two bedrooms. The lake facing master bedroom has its own 3-piece ensuite bathroom and a walk-out to a deck overlooking the water, perfect for your private morning coffee. The second bedroom on this level is tucked into the shaded driveway side, lending to cooler night’s sleep and has its own 4-piece ensuite bathroom.
The remaining 3 bedrooms are located on the lower level and share a 4-piece bathroom. Rounding out the lower level is an entertainment room with a TV/DVD and a treadmill with an adjoining family room complete with an electric fireplace and plenty of windows and brightness with a separate walk-out.
The lakefront property is amazing and will literally take your breathe away! The fire pit is front and center overlooking a lovingly landscaped rock garden, overlooking 270 feet of crystal clear waterfront with a 100 foot wide sand beach which is seldom seen in cottage country! Needless to say, this is where the family will spend most of their days, soaking up the sun while the kids play for hours making sand castles. The shallow entry is ideal for both young and old alike and stays shallow for quite a stretch out. With a southern exposure you will enjoy all day fun in the sun at the water and will be privy to spectacular sunsets.
Lake of Bays, the second largest lake in the Muskokas with over 165 km of shoreline and depths that exceed 200 feet, is known for its fabulous swimming, fishing and boating. With numerous marinas and public boat launches nearby, you could bring your own boat or rent a boat to enjoy all that the lake has to offer. You should definitely indulge in a boating day trip or two to the villages of Dorset, Dwight and Baysville or visit historic Bigwin Island for a day of golf.
This cottage vacation property is sure to please the entire family, and you will want to return year after year!! It just doesn’t get much better!
