Situated on a secluded bay on pristine, naturally spring-fed Stewart Lake, this expansive 5+ bedroom 4.5 bathroom home has a huge wraparound deck with spectacular lake views & features everything you could ask for in a family vacation spot. The level lawn tapers down to a family fire pit area beside a private child-friendly beach with a shallow-water entry and sandy bottom. Parents and grandparents can watch the children play in the water seated comfortably and out of the sun in the breezy, waterside screened gazebo. The cottage rental includes a paddle boat, a canoe & kayaks, life jackets and lawn games. The interior of the home features breathtaking 22 foot pine cathedral ceilings with towering lake view windows and a massive Muskoka granite fireplace in the Great Room. A generously-sized open concept kitchen has all modern stainless steel appliances and a convenient breakfast bar with raised counter height chairs. The coffee maker is a Hamilton Beach 2 way flex brew. One side is 'drip', and the other side is for standard 'pods'. The home has pristine well water for safe drinking and a state of the art tankless continuous & on demand water heating system so late risers can still enjoy hot showers any time they choose. Unique interior layout features 5 large bedrooms & 4.5 bathrooms located on 3 separate levels for private living zones catering to large families.

The lower level also has a walkout to a patio facing the lake plus 2 bedrooms: one with a queen bed, & the second lower level bedroom has a supreme bunk bed with a single upper bed & lower double mattress plus a traditional bunk bed with twin upper and lower mattresses. A crib is also available upon request. Total sleeping capacity is 14 in 9 beds.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful, spacious and clean cottage! Everything was perfect during our 4 day stay in September. - Easy check in, even with a small miscommunication on the entry code that was corrected in about 5 minutes by contacting the host. - Clean and spacious. Pictures are beautiful but being there in person makes you appreciate all the details. Everything was also very clean with pride of ownership evident. We had a group of 14 but never felt (EMAIL HIDDEN)fortable and convenient. Central heating worked well and came in handy with the colder fall nights. Quick 5-10 minute drive to town for resupply if needed. Would absolutely stay again if ever given the chance! Thanks again for being such a great host!

Kilty Cottage - perfect for families!
average rating of 4.0 based on 4 reviews

A wonderful place for our family !

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here with our 2 sons,2 daughter-in-laws, and 4 grandchildren ( 4 yaars and younger) . Home was very well equipped and such a nice touch to be able to use basic provisions like sugar, flour, spices etc. Kitchen was very well equipped - couldn't ask for more. We loved our dinners in the screened gazebo.The children loved the beach, the shallow water, the bin of toys - especially the big Tonka trucks. We all enjoyed the paddleboat, kayaks and canoe. Having bedrooms on 3 floors meant that we could all spread out .Everything was spotlessly clean. The only thing that prevents me from giving this 5 stars is the fact that the train yard in MacTier is very close and you can hear trains blowing their whistle and cars shunting during the night ! Otherwise, it was perfect .
