Description: 

NEWLY LISTED-JUNE 2022! 

Your next beach getaway isn't a tropical destination but in the heart of cottage country!

Located 15 minutes from downtown Huntsville sits Shep's Place on Fox Lake! This 1974 sq.ft. cottage comes with over 90 feet of waterfront and a golden sand beach to enjoy. A property that has been in the owner's family for many ​​decades and ready to be your family's newest tradition. A traditional cottage experience with modern touches, this property hosts 3 bedrooms and 2 indoor entertainment spaces. With the idea of family members spending as much quality time together while on holiday, the open flow to this cottage will keep everyone involved in the conversations. Morning coffees can be enjoyed on the deck looking out to the water or take it down to the sandy beach feeling as though you are at an all-inclusive vacation!  

This special piece of paradise in cottage country sees sun from 10 am until sunset, so you will never miss a chance to see Mother Nature paint the evening sky. With the added luxury of a hot tub overlooking the lake, you can relax in it after a day on the water and soak in the all the elements. Enjoy the lake with 2 paddle boards at your disposal, explore the 2 islands or head towards the south end to see Hoodstown Rapids from a viewing bridge.  For an added adventure, supply your own kayak or canoe and you could have a rare pleasure of exploring the north end of the lake travelling up Buck river for a unique tranquil experience. Enjoy the stillness of the river as you paddle emersed in nature and hopefully get a glimpse of the wildlife such as muskrats, river otters, king fishers, herons, and much more, leaving only your worries and waves behind. 

With a prime location and easy access to all the local favourites of Huntsville, make sure to check out the Brunel Locks located 5 minutes down the road or live music in town. There is a local farmers market is available from 9am-2pm every Thursday for sweet treats, smoked fish and fresh produce.  

Let this beautiful place be the gateway to your Muskoka vacation, now available for summer !
