The piece de résistance is the magnificent Muskoka room opening to both the inside and outside- providing a space to enjoy modern creature comforts like TV, movies but also an area to enjoy family meals. As you exit the Muskoka room and walk outside, you will find the stone patio with BBQ area and large outdoor dining table making al fresco meals easy while the kids play in the sand pit or on the Ninja line across the yard. With 7 acres to explore, take the gradual path down to the water's edge. With morning to mid-afternoon sun, take a dip into the clear refreshing lake. Explore the narrows and the bay around the cottage with the paddle boards or canoe at your disposal. When the stars begin to light up the night sky, enjoy relaxing up by the fire pit with all your nearest and dearest under the twinkling lights.
5-minute drive from the cottage will take you to the town of Dunchurch, a quintessential small cottage country town, with a great public library, local community center, children’s playground and a sandy public beach where the kids of all ages can enjoy free daily certified swimming lessons offered by the Municipality of Whitestone .
