I don't usually write reviews of places that we stay at but just wanted everyone to know how great of a property this was. The view is spectacular and the photos dont do it justice. Will be back next year!

Amazing site on Lake Muskoka!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at this amazing older cottage. It is on a quiet bay on Walker's Point with a spectacular western view and magnificent sunsets. This is an older cottage with modern amenities set in beautiful Muskoka woods. It is very rustic but this is what made it so special for me it reminded me of the cottage I went to as a child. Lake Muskoka can be very busy but this area did not have the constant boat traffic that I have experienced on Browning Island.

We rented a boat for the week and it was great having a spot in the boat house. Unfortunately the weather didn't co-operate and we didn't get to boat as much as we would have liked, however, we did get to boat into Bala a couple of times to indulge in Don's Bakery (an absolute must but get there early). There was a kayak and canoe which we made use of in the bay.

The lake bottom was firm sand which is great for anyone who doesn't like soft bottoms. The stairs into the water could be slippery just be aware and careful.

My only caution to renters is that this cottage is on a fairly steep hill which could be a problem if there are any medical issues.

Over all we had an amazing time and will hopefully be back.

Beautiful Muskoka cottage with great privacy. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and can't wait to go again. The sunsets were incredible and the cottage was supplied with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Loved the peace and quiet. Was only woken up at night by an owl nearby in a tree!

Sunsets like you'd never image.

  • 5 of 5

I am a grandchild of the man that bought and built this property up to what it is today. I have been traveling to this cottege since I was 6 months old, now 26. It has been a special place for our family. There are so many wonderful things to do here and is perfect for spending time with friends and family. You can make your experience as fast pace or slow and relaxing as you choose. My favorite things to do include: laying out on the dock, swimming, canoeing to small islands and frog ponds, hiking, exploring, swimming in Bala Falls, playing cards, board games, cooking out and eating on the porch, renting jet skies, campfires, waterski shows, visiting town, farmers market, watching the sunset and starts at night and spending time with loved ones. Would not spend my vacations any other way!

Muskoka Lake East Bay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 2 weeks at this cottage. The cottage had all amenities and the location was good for travel to surrounding sites--Gravenhurst, Bala, Port Carling, and Bracebridge. The cottage was spacious and had all items you would expect from a cottage--linens, kitchen utensils, games, etc. etc. Everything we looked for was there. The road down to the cottage was very steep and I would not recommend it for anyone with disabilities. Similarly, the walk down to the water from the cottage was lengthy and not recommended for disabilities. But it was well cleared and steps for those who can hike up and down. No beach for small children. The sunset views were amazing. It was very woodsy and hence lots of mosquitoes but Muskoka Lake is so beautiful, it is a wonderful experience to have a lovely cottage here for two weeks. The owners are very responsive to any problems that may arise during your stay. And there is a local bakery that has amazing cinnamon buns!
