Welcome to this roomy NEWLY BUILT 1628 sq foot cottage on 2.5 acres with 205 feet of water frontage on crystal clear Mainhood Lake. The building of the cottage was a labour of love for the owners who spent 4 years doing most of the work themselves on weekends and holidays. This is evident from the moment you set foot on the property, both inside and outside, as you enjoy all the special attentions to detail to make this a place you will find hard to leave.
The interior is a wonderful and simple floor plan that has family gatherings as a priority in its design. As you enter into the open concept living/dining/kitchen area you will immediately be drawn into its warmth with large bay windows, beautiful tree top lake views, BC knotty cedar cathedral ceilings, comfortable furnishings and the perfect balance of cottage décor accents and art. With ceramic tiles, ceiling fans and plenty of windows in the main living area, you can remain cool even on the warmest of summer days.
A great spot to start your day with a cup of coffee is in the bright and spacious Muskoka room overlooking the lake. Meals can be prepared in the kitchen while taking in the lake views or on the back deck with the propane BBQ or treat your taste buds with the smoke BBQ. Breakfast, lunch or dinner can be enjoyed in a variety of places depending on the weather or your mood; breakfast in the Muskoka room, lunch out on the lakeside deck or dinner in the dining room under the refurbished wagon wheel chandelier.
The three bedrooms are on the same level, two lakeside and one tucked into the back, all uncluttered and tastefully furnished, with the 4 piece bathroom in the same area.
The great outdoors awaits you with an abundance of perfect spaces to settle into and cater to your every desire. The dock is sunny all day long and the water at the end of the dock is about five feet so great for shallow diving to cool off. There is a private cleared out wooded area with a wrought iron love seat to take in the morning views of the mist off of the lake and closer to the water is a wood swing set or hammock to while away the hours with a good novel.
A favourite spot for the owners is the large shaded waterfront deck. No seadoos or speedboats…just the gentle breeze and songbirds, schools of bass swimming in view and the call of the loons echoing on the shimmering lake. So peaceful and tranquil, all your stresses will wash away!
After a glorious day of swimming, paddling or fishing on the lake, partake in the rare joy of simple cottage life games such as horseshoes outside or board games and cards in the Muskoka room. But no cottage day is complete without roasting marshmallows by a fire, and the layout of this cottage’s fire pit is fantastic with its large and inviting multi-seated, front and center lakeside view set up!
