Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom 2 bathroom with water on three sides

This 3 season cottage was built by my great grandfather in 1906 and was one of the first on Bala Bay. There are four bedrooms upstairs with a 4 pc bathroom.

Downstairs has an eat in kitchen, a large dining room, a comfortable living room with wood burning stove, and a TV room that could double as a 5th bedroom with a powder room ensuite which is also accessible from the kitchen hallway.

Off the kitchen is a brand new deck and dock with picnic table and BBQ where you can enjoy famous Muskoka sunsets sipping the beverage of your choice. Or if you'd rather, relax in a Muskoka chair at the end of the Point and take in the sunset or the shooting stars from that vantage.

A water side hammock is available to enjoy an afternoon snooze or a good murder mystery.

The kitchen has all the basics amenities, microwave,new stove, new fridge with plenty of dishes to serve the crowd. There is a spare fridge in the boathouse for overflow.

A game cupboard provides entertainment at night or helps while away a rainy day.
