Welcome to this lovely 2,000 sq. ft., 3 bedroom cottage, nestled on one acre of land with 250 feet of shoreline on beautiful Groom Lake!
As you step into the foyer and then into the open concept living/dining/kitchen area, you will immediately feel the stress of the hectic pace of the city subside as you take in peaceful views of the lake from a wall of floor to ceiling windows. The interior of the cottage is warm and inviting, with gorgeous oak floors on the main level, a vaulted and beamed dark pine wood ceiling in the main living area and comfortable furnishings throughout.
Take your morning coffee out the sliding glass doors and onto the deck to catch the first rays of sunshine as they pop up over the treed horizon. Relax in the Muskoka Room enjoying the view of the lake. The propane furnace will automatically take the chill out of the cooler evenings - (no wood burning allowed at indoor fireplaces, please).
There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor, and 1 bedroom on the lower level - all 3 bedrooms enjoy a view of the lake, while the spacious master bedroom has its own 2-piece ensuite and a private walkout to the deck.
The lower level has a great games room with a separate TV room to provide a quiet movie area, undisturbed. From the games room, you can walk out to the grassy area that leads you to the steps down to the lake.
The property behind the cottage is flat and has a large cleared area which is perfect for tossing the Frisbee, a game of badminton, or roasting marshmallows over the open fire. The front of the property is flat near the cottage then slopes quickly to the lake. You'll find a set of wooden steps to take you to the waterfront and dock or you can use the gently sloped laneway that leads down to the lake. The entry into the water is from the large dock area where the water depth is about 3 feet at the end, or simply use the steps that lead you directly into the shallow water with soft sand bottom.
In addition to the main cottage, there is living space in the adjacent renovated garage with a living room and upper level bedroom with sleeping for 4 more people for an additional $245.
If you are looking for a winter getaway, this cottage has access to ATV and snowmobile trails that are less then 3km from the cottage. The driveway is plowed and there is plenty of room for parking vehicles and trailers. Also enjoy toboganning, ice fishing and snow shoeing with the many trails available to explore.
