Welcome to "Westwind" on peaceful Mary Lake. Set on a 1.5 acre lot of well treed land, this beautifully designed 5 bedroom, 2,100 sq. ft., 4 season cottage is sure to please!
The interior decor is a wonderful combination of tasteful comfortable furnishings with splashes of colourful wall tapestries and scattered carpets. The open concept kitchen/dining/living room all face out to the lake with a full wall of windows providing wonderful tree-top views. The kitchen is a chef’s dream complete with granite counters, Viking commercial gas stove, Miele Incognito dishwasher and Sub-Zero fridge.
The lake facing Muskoka room extends off of the dining room with a huge sectional couch, propane wood stove and TV, ideal for late night movie watching. Vaulted ceilings, living room floor to ceiling stone fireplace, gorgeous warm wood floors and an abundance of skylights add to the welcoming ambiance of this main living space.
Two bedrooms are tucked in behind the dining room and the spacious master bedroom, with soaring cathedral ceilings, is just steps down from the living room. You will definitely feel pampered here with a gas fireplace, television, a 3-piece ensuite and a private walk-out to a covered side deck.
On the lower level there are 2 more generous-sized bedrooms, a 3-piece bathroom, a sitting room and walk-outs to the lawn and stairs down to the waterfront.
Start your mornings off, cup of coffee in hand, on the large deck which can be accessed from both the kitchen and Muskoka room. 18 granite steps take you from the cottage’s lower level down to 250 feet of water frontage. The expansive sun-filled dock has a slip for those who wish to rent or bring a boat and plenty of room for lounging and relaxing. To the side of the dock there are a few limestone steps that allow for shallow entry onto a mostly hard packed sand bottom, great for both young and old alike. With a canoe and kayak at your disposal, head out onto the water and explore the lake and Muskoka river.
For day trips spend some time in nearby Port Sydney, stroll along the public beach and don’t miss the Falls and Dam. Once back at the cottage, enjoy a BBQ dinner and with a western exposure, you will be spoilt with stunning sunsets on every clear night. Life is good in cottage country!
