Marlatt Island

Looking for ultimate privacy in a luxuriously cozy and comfy quintessential Muskoka cottage on an stunning piece of island property that caters to all ages in the family?! Then look no further, the popular slogan, “Muskoka Once Discovered Never Forgotten”, will sum up your experience after you have the opportunity to settle into this amazing family oasis getaway for an unforgettable vacation.

This gorgeous 3,000 sq.ft., 6 bedroom cottage is nestled on 4.5 acres of land on tranquil Skeleton Lake. The lake is thought to have been formed as a result of a meteorite impact that occurred about 800 million years ago!

The interior of the cottage is warm and inviting with just the right combination of natural pine and white-washed pine walls with gorgeous maple wood floors throughout the main level and slate floor tiles throughout the lower level. Each and every room is comfortably and tastefully designed and decorated.

The open concept living/dining/kitchen area, with soaring cathedral ceilings and a wall of floor to ceiling windows in the living room, will be the main gathering place for the family to enjoy prepping meals, dining and relaxing while taking in tree-top views of the lake. For after-dinner beverages settle in front of the stunning stone fireplace in the living room or relax in the Muskoka room looking out to the lake across beautifully maintained landscaping and rock gardens. On warmer evenings step out onto the L-shaped deck with glass railings allowing for unobstructed views of the beauty before you while breathing in the fresh country air.

At the far end of the main level, providing serene privacy, is the spacious lake-facing master bedroom with its own 4-piece ensuite and Juliet balcony. Rounding out the main level is a 4-piece bathroom, a small bedroom off of the kitchen and a generous-sized loft bedroom with tree top views out to the lake.

The lower level is ideal for extended family, as it is an almost completely self-sufficient living space with 3 bedrooms, a family room, a 4-piece bathroom, a kitchenette and direct walk-out to the cottage grounds and lake.

Start your mornings off, cup of coffee in hand, either on the sunny main level deck or lower shaded stone patio. A stone pathway takes you down to a second stone patio, with views out to the lake, and then a short set of stone steps takes you down to 750 ft. of waterfront. 

At this point you will want to kick off your flip flops and sink your toes into the glorious large sandy beach! Hard to believe, but Muskoka meets the Caribbean in this amazing unexpected playground for both young and old alike with step access to shallow sandy water. From here there is also a lakeside deck and not one but two docks. With an abundance of areas to choose from to sit and relax while taking in the peaceful surroundings, it will be hard to decide where to settle into for the day.

With 2 kayaks, 2 paddle boards and a paddleboat at your disposal, 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 open body of water in Skeleton Lake is about the largest open body of water in all the Muskoka Lakes. This makes it an excellent lake for such sports as sailing and windsurfing. Due to the spring fed-nature of the lake, the water is exceptionally clear, perfect for swimming and snorkeling, and the fishing is very good for bass, trout and walleye. According to residents of the lake, on calm days it is possible to see up to 13 metres (42 ft) underwater with the naked eye. The lake has spectacular shoreline granite cliffs and many outcrops creating a dramatic (Devil’s Face Cliff being a popular landmark) and unique landscape around the lake.

For a short day trip head into Rosseau, especially on a summer Friday, and enjoy the Farmer's Market at the boat launch and park. Today Magazine refers to The Rosseau General Store as "an eclectic emporium where you can find just about anything you could reasonably want, a village Wal-Mart but with infinitely more character”.

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 round the fire pit in the evening and watch the moon rise as you make smores and reminisce about the days adventures, could you ask for a better way to end another fabulous day in Muskoka?!
