NEWLY LISTED - August 2019

You need not look any further if you are seeking a cottage country vacation in the lap of casual cottage chic luxury with tranquil surroundings, amazing lake views and glorious sunsets! The popular slogan, "Muskoka Once Discovered Never Forgotten" will sum up your experience after you have had the opportunity to settle into this wonderful property for a memorable vacation to last a lifetime.

Welcome to this fabulous property with 300 feet of natural shoreline and a gorgeous 4-season, 3,540 sq. ft., 3 level, 5 bedroom cottage nestled on 1.5 acres of well treed land on ever popular Lake Muskoka. The cottage is located on a point of land that has been in the family since the 1940’s. The current family member owners have lovingly rebuilt the original cottage over the past two years, adding many custom features including meticulously crafted homemade furniture.

This picturesque offering has it all and delivers a complete wish list from its ideal location on the lake to multiple outdoor places to kick back and relax both inside and outside, enjoying peace and serenity. And for those who like a little more action, the owner, who is a competitive disc golf player, has designed a six hole disc golf course through the trails on the property!

The well thought out cottage interior layout is perfect for one or more families with upper and lower levels having bedrooms and bathrooms. The spacious lakeside master bedroom is on the upper level with its own 4-piece ensuite bathroom and has a wall of large picture windows that make you feel like you are in a treehouse. Two more bedrooms and a 3-piece bathroom round out the upper level and two more bedrooms and another 3-piece bathroom are on the lower level along with a family room that has a walk-out to the lakeside of the property.

The sprawling main level has a warm and comfortable flow from the front foyer, past the parlour room, to the open concept kitchen/dining/living room. This main family gathering area has beautiful wood floors throughout and a multitude of windows filling this space with soft ambient light.

The kitchen is equipped with all the desired amenities of home, modern stainless steel appliances, gas stove, double oven and a large kitchen island providing plenty of counter space for prepping meals. The dining room has a large harvest dining table to accommodate the whole family(s) for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while the living room, with its comfy couches and chairs, is the perfect spot to retreat to with after dinner drinks to relax in front of the fireplace on cooler evenings.

The screened-in Muskoka room, just off of the living room/kitchen, provides an additional area for dining while feeling one with nature even on inclement days.

Start your mornings off on the shaded wrap-around deck at the cottage or head down to the large lakeside deck and dock as the sun rises and another day in paradise begins. With a southwest exposure, enjoy sunshine from morning until sunset. Being tucked into a bay gives you the best of both worlds having less traffic pass your tranquil setting while still having access to big open water. Take advantage of the early mornings, when the waters are at their calmest, and paddle on the lake as the mist rises off the water, magical.

The older kids and adults will love jumping off of the end of the dock and swimming back and forth to the swim raft, then resting and sunning on the raft or on the cargo net hammock beds on the lakeside deck.

For avid boaters bring or rent a boat and explore the extensive network (known as "The Big Three") connecting Lake Muskoka to Lake Rosseau by the Indian River, and Lake Rosseau to Lake Joseph by the St Joseph River. Lake Muskoka has everything you could wish for in a lake, you can even boat to restaurants!

Any day of the week is great to venture out to nearby Gravenhurst for a change of pace, but be sure not to miss visiting on Wednesdays from Victoria Day to Thanksgiving from 9am-2pm by the wharf for the enormous Farmer’s Market, one of the regions most popular attractions. The quaint towns of Bala and Port Carling can be reached via water or road, also providing great outdoor activities such as Bala cranberry marsh/winery, Dark Sky preserve and Huckleberry lookout.

Whether you spend your days on the water or exploring charming villages and surrounding landmarks, end your days with a BBQ back at the cottage, favourite beverage in hand and gather around the fire pit in the evening as you reminisce about the day’s adventures. The rich cottage history of vacationing on this famous lake is sure to please the whole family!
