Description: 

Look no further for the perfect and memorable cottage vacation property! This wonderful 1,600 sq. ft., 4 bedroom 10 year old Viceroy bungalow cottage is located on an acre of land on peaceful Bigwind Lake.  

The interior of the cottage is beautifully maintained and tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings and warm wood laminate floors throughout. As you step into the open concept kitchen/dining/living room, with its soaring pine cathedral ceiling, you will be greeted with serene lake views through a wall of floor to ceiling windows. The kitchen will be a joy to prepare meals in with plenty of counter space and a lake facing island allowing you to enjoy great views while prepping.  

Three of the four bedrooms are tucked into the shaded back of the cottage, catering to a good night’s sleep and the lake facing master bedroom is located in the recent addition with a 3-piece bathroom and a den with a walk-out to the screened-in Muskoka room.

Start your mornings on the deck, enjoying a hearty breakfast while taking in tranquil lake views. Take a few steps down from the deck to the furthest point of the lot to get a full expansive view of the lake. The lot features a small sandy area for the little ones and on the other side of the point you will find a deep sloping waters edge, perfect for swimming in the refreshing lake. The property caters to young and old alike with its gentle sloping land from the cottage to the lake and a lakeside children’s playhouse with a swing and grassy flat areas for kids to run and play.

Soak up the sun all day long on the never-ending dock and shallow dive and swim to your hearts content off the end or take the canoe, palddle boat or kayak out onto the lake and enjoy a quiet paddle as there is very little boat traffic, truly a lost paradise in Northern Ontario. Afterwards, kick back and read a book on the sunny lakeside deck or shaded cottage deck.

Bigwind is a majestic lake that is surrounded by a provincial park and a nature preserve. Due to this unique location, the waters are crystal clear, as it is spring fed and as deep as 100 feet in some places, and one of the cleanest lakes in Muskoka. Two-thirds of the lake are crown land and wilderness park and completely uninhabited, renowned for its many fishing spots, its home to speckled trout, lake trout, perch and small mouth bass are quite plentiful. It is home to only a few cottages, approximately 40, that are built outside the provincial park lands but have been given access to the entire lake and its unspoiled beauty.

For short day trips, head into Bracebridge or Gravenhurst, just a 20-30 minute drive away, for shopping, dining and entertainment. There is no end to the activities offered in this area; golfing, hiking, go-carts, mini-golf, scenic boat cruises, even sea-plane tours. For the little ones be sure to visit Santa’s Village and for a fun family night, take a step back in time and go to the outdoor Muskoka Drive-In, featuring current movies.

End your days back at the cottage and watch the sun set from the deck or Muskoka room as you sip on a beverage and listen to your favourite tunes. After a BBQ dinner, gather the clan and head down to the lakeside fire pit for some marshmallow roasting or for some hair-raising ghost stories, you couldn’t ask for a better way to end a day!
