Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Detached 1BR unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
I've been coming to Muskoka since I was 2, and was lucky to buy a cottage near Bala in 1987. I go there every chance I get, and our 3 kids spent their whole summers swimming, canoeing and being outdoors. Over the years we have upgraded just about everything.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 1987
Why Owner chose Bala
Lake Muskoka is a little piece of heaven on earth. Not too hard to get to, but a world away from the city. You want to be on one of the 3 big lakes: Muskoka, Rosseau or Joseph. They all connect in the hub of Port Carling, where shops and restaurants have sprung up and become a fun destination themselves.

The place and location were great! Really enjoyed our stay. Peter the owner was great.
Another good week for our group on Lake Muskoka. Beds were soo comfortable. Big comfy couches. Dock space perfect for our boat. Free public boat launch close by in Port Carling. Lots of seating about the property. Kids loved the raft to swim to and the kayaks. Also good for small kids as there is a sandy, shallow entry. Dining on the boathouse roof was a highlight as were the campfires. Location is close to Hwy 169- easy access to Bala and Port Carling. Thanks Peter!
Perfectly located gem of a cottage in Muskoka. We enjoyed our 7 nights at this cottage.
Lovely traditional Muskoka Cottage- with upgrades!
A lovely traditional older Muskoka cottage upgraded to make it very functional and comfortable. Lots of space and great beds. A great variety of water equipment all in good condition. Close to both Bala and Port Carling yet on a quiet bay. Peter was very helpful and easily accessible to answer any questions.
Relaxing, well maintained property
Property identical to photos, lot of room, great location, owner checked in to ask if everything was as needed. Thanks
Comfortable and private getaway
We had a wonderful, relaxing week at Peter's cottage!
Listing description and pictures are very accurate and Peter was very responsive answering our questions. The cottage was very clean and well-stocked (kitchenware/gadgets, towels, games, VHS movies, canoe, kayaks, paddleboards, life jackets). Peter provided a great document outlining the rules and how everything works (garbage, dishwasher, etc). We were 6 adults and 2 dogs, so it could feel a bit crowded at times (bedrooms are small), but on the nice days we spent all our time outside so that didn't matter much! The cottage is located just a 5 min drive to Bala and 10 min to Port Carling, which had all the amenities we needed.
The lake water is just terrific. Warm, clean and very swimmable. The bay is quiet and we only saw a few boats in our area during our stay. We took full advantage of the calm bay and spent so much time paddle boarding, swimming and kayaking.
All in all, we enjoyed our time immensely and would definitely return!
