This cottage is the real Muskoka. It’s on a spring-fed lake, on a 4.5 acre large point of land and 1,600 ft. of forested shoreline. The gently sloping lot has rock outcroppings and is covered with mature white pines, hemlock and blueberries. Privacy, Nature and respect for the Environment best describe this property at the very end of a private road, with the closest cottage hundreds of feet away and out of sight. This warm lake is home to only has 40 cottages. Ours is bright and sunny with exposures east, south, and west along with the best sunset views on the lake. The level lot offers a shoreline that has a shallow, sandy water entry and nearby, the deepest water on the lake. The breezes on the point keep bugs at bay and several resident loons can be heard daily. You can read on the Muskoka chairs on the south facing dock or the rock outcropping facing west. Or you can hop into the hammock under the shade of the century old pines.
The property is located 20 minutes drive from Port Carling, Bracebridge and Huntsville with their regional museums, restaurants, antique stores and golf courses.
The three bedroom, two bathroom cottage (one ensuite) is at the end of a long private drive with no other cottages nearby. The interior is panelled with solid birch and has a birch hardwood floor in the living/dining area. Magnificent sunsets are seen from the living room which has a wall of windows facing west onto the lake as well as a floor to ceiling natural fieldstone fireplace. (Wood provided.) The cottage also features a bright, spacious sunroom, which has been converted to a third bedroom with a private walkout leading to the deck. The deck, with a picnic table for six is an ideal place for breakfast and lunch. A flat screen TV, a wide collection of DVD's and board games are available for rainy days. We also have an excellent selection of fine literature on hand.
The property is covered with mature white pines, natural vegetation and wild blueberries in July. The kids will love to roam freely in the woods or play in the water right in front of the cottage where there is a small shallow bay with a sandy bottom and you can keep an eye on them. The long shoreline also has granite rock sloping into deeper water further away from the cottage. Relax on the dock where you can pull up the canoe and kayak to head out for a paddle on the lake. A stone outdoor fireplace on the point is perfect for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows on a stick, and serves as a great place to sit by the fire or watch the stars. Sunsets are best seen from our "sunset rock" which is furnished with Muskoka chairs and a small table for wine and cheese. Looking across the lake from these chairs, you will see the forested shoreline and the full length of this charming lake.
