A most unusual and private setting with picturesque, unspoiled views of Lake Joseph. Nestled on the western point of pristine 4.5 acre Bunny Island, this cottage and boathouse retain the rustic character of old Lake Joseph and the traditional Muskoka charm while offering modern amenities. The quality of light, especially at sunset, is unmatched in beauty. Hikes around the island, swimming in the deep, clean waters, boating, or just relaxing in the cottage are among many of the pastimes to enjoy. The boathouse has ample dock space for relaxing anytime of day, and especially for enjoying the incomparable Muskokan sunsets.
The west-facing living room features exposed hand-hewn beams, island-harvested pine-board wainscoting with birch bark “wallpaper”, birch bark posts, and a working fireplace. The dining room has a pleasing air with eight comfortable hand-crafted chairs surrounding a hand-built harvest table. The window seat in the corner offers beautiful views to the south and west. The well-equipped and spacious kitchen features custom-made glass-door cabinets above and solid below, butcher block and soapstone countertops. There are two sinks: prep and clean-up, and a bar housed in a beautiful antique cupboard. A separate wing opens to a screened porch with up-swing windows, and two bedrooms, each with two twin beds.
A large second-floor hall leads to the three “master” bedrooms, each with its own character and charm, two with walk-out decks. One has a built-in daybed providing a view of Seven Pines Island to the south and Strawberry Island to the west; another has a curved-wall step-down entry which offers a private setting overlooking the western channel; and the third has large in-swing windows which provide panoramic views of the lake. Hand-crafted pine woodwork and floors combined with well-chosen and comfortable furnishings make this cottage a lovely place to relax and enjoy this protected area of Lake Joseph.
