Description: 

 

Welcome to this wonderful island property and lovely 1,000 sq. ft., 2 bedroom cottage and Bunkie, nestled on 2 acres of well-treed land. A short and relatively direct boat ride takes you to your family cottage vacation getaway, perched above a sunning granite shoal, on the beautiful shores of Big Hawk Lake!

The interior of the cottage has a perfect and simple floor plan with the open concept kitchen/dining/living room facing out to the lake and the 2 bedrooms are tucked into the shaded back of the cottage, lending to a great night’s sleep. Pine walls and pine cathedral ceilings, along with wood laminate floors, give the main living area a warm and inviting ambiance with a wall of floor to ceiling windows framing serene tree-top views of the lake.

The screened-in Muskoka room is just off of the main living area and is a great spot to play board games or read a book on inclement days or grab an afternoon nap rain or shine.

The Bunkie is ideal for the older kids to sleep in, allowing them some privacy while still being close to the main cottage.

Start your days on the expansive deck, cup of coffee in hand, and then take the canoes out onto the lake as the early morning mist burns off and exposes the beauty of the calm lake before the rest of the world wakes up.

The dock has plenty of room for the family to relax and sun bathe and depending on the water levels, there is a protected beach, great for the kids to play for hours on end and the shallow entry makes it safe for them to splash and cool off.

For a quick and easy day trip, experience the beautiful and historical town of Dorset. It sits on the shores of Lake of Bays and has a wonderful waterfront restaurant, ice cream parlour, café, little shops along with a large grocery store, an LCBO and a park. For an unimaginable 360 degree view of Lake of Bays, you can climb the famous Dorset Lookout Tower which stands 465 feet.

End your days back at the cottage for happy hour beverages and a BBQ on the deck and reminisce about the days adventures and plan for another fabulous day in cottage country.
