Description: 

You have reached your destination!  As the driveway opens up through the treed one acre property, you are pleasantly pleased to see this wonderful cottage with its large deck, large dock, and 195 feet of shoreline. This 3 bedroom cottage is very comfortable for 2 families to vacation together at. Relax and enjoy the natural surrounding and tranquility. Go exploring - canoe, kayak or swim over to the small island located out from the cottage - have a picnic or try some cliff jumping.

The interior of the cottage has large windows and vaulted pine ceiling in the main living area to give a larger, more open feeling to the living space with views of the lake and down to the water. The kitchen with its white cabinetry is open to the living and dining areas while being very functional with good appliances and an island which provides extra counter space. The dining table has a hidden leaf so it can extend to comfortably seat 8 people around it. Sit back and relax in the comfortable seating of the living room area. Dark wide planked wood laminate flooring provides a comfortable feeling to the main area. The bedroom hallway overlooks the main living area. Over to the left, at the end of the hall, is the master bedroom with a queen size bed and windows looking out to the lake. Both of the other bedrooms have double/single combo bunks.  The bedrooms have carpet flooring and pine walls. At the opposite end of the hall is the 4-piece bathroom. For those who enjoy the true cottage experience, there is a very nice outhouse located across the parking area from the cottage.

Access from the cottage onto the deck is easy through the sliding glass doors or the main entrance door. The large deck area provides plenty of space for everyone and offers the perfect spot to enjoy your meals, relax with a beverage or wake up to another beautiful day with your morning coffee. The deck provides some shade available throughout the day to retreat from the heat of the summer sun when you want to. There is a firepit is over to the side of the cottage and deck.  Roast marshmallows over a bonfire while looking out to the lake and up at the starlit sky.

The property at the cottage slopes to the water with a landscaped pathway and steps leading you to the waterfront from the cottage. At the waterfront, you will find a large dock with 6 to 8 feet deep water at the end for jumping and diving. Relax on the lounge chairs or in the Muskoka chairs while enjoying the view across the lake.  The large umbrella will provide shade on those sunny summer days. There is sun on dock from sunrise to about 4:30 pm. There is a shallow step-in area for kids (no weeds) to the left of the dock in front of the small shed.  The lake bottom here is medium to hard packed sand/silt. If you're a morning person and enjoy fishing, be sure to take the canoe or kayak out to experience the very good fishing for bass and pike here on Otter Lake. If you decide to bring your own boat, there is a public launch across the lake.
