Beautifully one of a kind, this 6,800 square foot super-luxury log chalet nestled in the Canadian Shield on Lake Manitouwabing in picturesque Ontario cottage country, is located just 2 hours north of Toronto Airport. It is perfect for a romantic getaway, company offsite or a family gathering.
This remarkable custom masterpiece took almost 10 years to build and furnish to the highest standards of quality and design. Millions invested. Each room encompasses a theme of the Canadian north, in incredible and breathtaking artistic detail. Needs to be seen to be believed.
The entrance to the cottage is a comfortably furnished screened in porch in the summer. At the rear, you will find a two level massive wrap around deck. Lighted stairs down to the boathouse for evening swims. The 1500 square foot boathouse has an upper deck that is furnished with luxury lounge chairs and 12 seat dining table with full canopy. A gate provides access to the water from the top of the boathouse. Stairs to the lower level of the boathouse lead onto a landing and from there you can go into the boathouse or onto the docks on either side. The water is approximately 20 feet deep off the end of the boathouse.
The Great Room is the perfect room for relaxing, reading and quiet reflection. It is adjacent to the dining room, and the centerpiece of the room is a twenty foot high stone fireplace and the rotunda ceiling is beautifully designed in log and pine. The custom furniture adds to the delight. Enjoy a roaring fire or the beautiful views from several picture windows! The dining room has a massive granite dining table, seating for 14 or more people, and is lit by either electric or candle light from the magnificent custom designed cast iron chandelier that spans almost the entire table. The 14 chairs are covered in custom fitted leather hides.
The complete gourmet kitchen has all the appliances and amenities. It is masterfully designed and pays attention to the flow of traffic, making cooking and cleaning easy. It is fully loaded with top of the line appliances. The built in island and seating area is ideal for relaxing breakfasts or a quick snack. There is also a wet bar with a wine fridge. Sliding glass doors onto upper wrap around deck offer an excellent view of the lake. There is a propane gas barbecue and a second upper outdoor dining patio set (barbecue hooked directly to the main line, no need to ever worry about running out). Fresh spring well (360 feet deep ) has been fully tested by the Ministry has always passed.
The master bedroom features a uniquely designed canadian shield themed bathroom with a two person Jacuzzi and a dual sided gas fireplace for you to enjoy the warmth while in the bath or in the king size bed. There are 2 Bunk Rooms and each of these double, extra length mahogany bunks was designed to allow for maximum comfort and privacy. A reading light in each bunk enables one person to read and another to sleep without being disturbed. There are 4 bunks in each room. These dorms are also each equipped with a separate stand alone queen-sized bed to maximize sleeping space. (10 beds in total in these two rooms). Each of these dorms have been themed as a log room and as a paddle room with the furniture being constructed entirely from these materials. Beds and chairs made from logs and paddles. A truly unique experience. Dorms share a bathroom patterned after the master bedroom bath, made to look like the canadian shield and is equipped with a double person Jacuzzi and shower. A third themed bedroom, made to look like a middle eastern sultan's tent is on the lower level with a king size bed has sliding glass doors that lead onto the lower wrap around deck.
The exceptional home theatre room features a stone fireplace that almost rivals the great room. You can enjoy a hot blazing fire while enjoying one of the several activities. If television is not your thing, relax with one of the hundreds of books from the fully stocked shelves. You could also play snooker or pool on the 4' x 8' billiards table. Whatever you choose, this room makes those nights at the cottage as special as the days spent outside on the water.
The loft has a panoramic view of the lake and surrounding area and has a quiet seating area. The laundry room is located on the lower level and includes washer and gas dryer. A full size fridge is located near the recreation room for extra storage.
