Beautiful Muskoka Lake Boathouse/Cottage Port Carling/Bala: Most of Fall Open!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage


About the property

Boathouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps ~6, 4 in queen/king beds, two on cots)

This boathouse is the perfect place in Cottage Country. Stairs or a ramp lead into the boathouse. The boathouse is located right on top of the water with a large deck on the second level with clear glass railings providing unobstructed views of the lake. Because it has a southern exposure, sun is available all day long. The large deck is perfect for sun bathing, taking in the view (Loons and ducks frequent the area.), dining, or just watching the stars at night. (Meteor Showers in August are jaw dropping!) Lower Docks are on three sides of the boathouse, which make swimming, fishing, or sunning an ideal experience. The biggest bonus of the boathouse is that the lake is visible from the family and dining room on three sides. Whether from the deck or inside, the sights make eating breakfast, lunch and dinner a special treat!

The master bedroom (ensuite) has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed.

There are two rolling cots that may be used for additional sleeping accommodations.

If you have a boat, you may dock your boat by the docks.

There are 4 boats included with the rental for you to explore the lake: a canoe, rowboat, kayak, and paddleboat.

Chairs are available for enjoying the view from the docks or deck. The swimming area around the boathouse ranges from 3 feet to 7 feet close to the boathouse and then deeper (~20 ft.) further out. The water temperature is warmer as it’s located in a smaller, shallow bay on Lake Muskoka.

The Glen Orchard General Store is only 10 minutes away for quick need items. Restaurants, shopping, and sight seeing in Bala, Bracebridge, and Port Carling are within a short distance. Tennis and golf are also nearby.

Lake Muskoka connects to Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph in the heart of Port Carling. Port Carling is not far either by motorboat or by car.
