Description: 

If privacy and incredible views are what you’re looking for, this oasis is it! The popular slogan, “Muskoka: Once Discovered Never Forgotten”, will sum up your experience after you have had the opportunity to settle into this amazing property for an unforgettable vacation.

This stunning 4,200 sq. ft., 3 level, 4 bedroom cottage and 2 bedroom boathouse are nestled on 4.5 acres of land on the beautiful shores of pristine Lake Joseph.

The sprawling main level has a warm and comfortable flow from the front foyer to the dining room, living room, kitchen and family room. With a wall of windows facing out to the lake the tree top views are breathe-taking. The cottage was designed so that you could enjoy the views of the lake, nature and the landscape from every room offering subtle elegance, luxury and supreme comfort.

The expansive screened-in Muskoka room extends almost the entire length of the cottage, providing an additional area to enjoy the outdoors while dining and lounging. This is the owner’s favourite area for entertaining and relaxing while listening to the soothing call of the loons and the lapping sounds of the waves as they roll onto the shore. 

The main level master bedroom, just off of the living room, is bright and spacious with soaring cathedral ceilings, a 4-piece ensuite complete with a jacuzzi tub and a walk-out to a deck with a hot tub and tree-top views of the lake. The remaining 3 bedrooms are located on the upper level, all very inviting with their own comfortable décor and tranquil views.

The second family room is located on the lower level and offers plenty of entertainment value for the family with a TV/DVD, air hockey table, pool table and a gym area with a treadmill, weight bench and weights.

If you want more privacy and to spend time literally “on the water”, the beautiful boathouse has 2 bedrooms, a 3-piece bathroom and a living area with a wood burning fireplace. 

Meandering stone pathways take you down to the boathouse and dock and over 400 feet of natural shoreline. With an abundance of areas to choose from to sit and relax while taking in the peaceful surroundings, it will be hard to decide where to settle into for the day. The boathouse has an upper deck and a lower dock with Muskoka chairs and a perfectly placed hammock to while away the hours in the shade. The sun lovers can take over the main dock and bask in the sunshine from mid-morning until 4pm and for a view higher up, head to one of the two stone patios with Muskoka chairs, a bench and a double swing chair.

Being tucked into a bay (Whalon Bay) gives you the best of both worlds having less traffic pass your tranquil setting while still having quick access to big open water. Take advantage of the early mornings, when the waters are at their calmest, and paddle on the lake as the mist rises off the water, magical. Swim in the refreshing crystal clear water or cast a fishing line off one of the docks where you can truly see down 15-20 feet.

Take full advantage from this property and bring or rent a boat and tour the extensive network connecting “The Big Three” (Lake Joseph to Lake Rosseau and Lake Muskoka via river and lock systems). All three lakes offer night life, restaurants, golfing, fishing and festivals.

For a short day trip, head into Rosseau, especially on a summer Friday, and enjoy the Farmer's Market at the boat launch and park. Today Magazine refers to The Rosseau General Store as "an eclectic emporium where you can find just about anything you could reasonably want, a village Wal-Mart but with infinitely more character”.

Whether you spend your days on the water or exploring charming villages and surrounding landmarks, end your days with a BBQ back at the cottage, favourite beverage in hand and gather round the fire pit in the evening and watch the spectacular sunsets as you make smores and reminisce about the days adventures. The rich cottage history of vacationing on this famous lake is sure to please the whole family!
