Welcome to the perfect and affordable small family vacation getaway on ever popular Lake Muskoka! This 800 sq. ft., 3 bedroom cottage is cute and as clean as a whistle with all the comfort conveniences of home.
The cozy living room has beautiful lake views and a gas fireplace for cooler evenings and a ceiling fan to make for more comfortable nights on humid summer evenings. The well-equipped kitchen has lake views as well making it enjoyable while prepping and making meals. Although there are seating areas inside for snacking or dining, the place of choice on beautiful summer days will be the deck overlooking the expansive lawn and lake. The primary water source is a drilled well that is potable, but does have a sulpher smell which can vary throughout the year. There is a water cooler in the kitchen and drinking water provided. The hot water tank is 15 gallons which is normally good for about two showers, then may require 20 - 30 minutes to replenish.
The front or back lawn are great for the kids to play catch or throw a frisbee and the 25 feet of hard packed sand at the waterfront is ideal for young and old alike to safely splash and play. There are rocks marked by a green buoy in front of the property that can easily be swam out to and explored with a snorkel. You can stand on these rocks and the water will come up to your hips. With the property facing south enjoy plenty of sunshine from late morning to sunset.
The property is located in one of the most sought after parts of Lake Muskoka, directly between the towns of Port Carling and Bala. St. Anne’s Catholic Church is a heritage building only two properties away where there is also a municipal dock, an excellent place to view sunsets! Boat parking is provided overnight at the adjacent boat house, with daytime parking available at the municipal dock, or right on your beach!
The country road in front of the cottage is great for scenic afternoon walks or runs and for nature lovers keep your eye out for deer and blue herons, commonly sited weekly. Finally, for avid boaters, you can tour “The Big Three” (Lake Muskoka, Lake Joseph and Lake Rosseau). With it's central location, you can easily access Bala, Port Carling, Bracebridge, or Gravenhurst by lake!
The lake also hosts frequent fishing derbies so needless to say keen fishermen won’t be disappointed. The rich cottage history of vacationing on this famous lake is sure to please the whole family!
