This fully equipped luxury cottage is an easy, scenic 2 hour drive north of Toronto in the heart of beautiful Muskoka. Designed by renowned architect Richard Wengle the 1900+ square foot cottage is part of Clublink's Lakeside at Rocky Crest Resort. It is adjacent to the nationally ranked and renowned 18 hole Rocky Crest Golf Course and along the the shore of Lake Joseph, one of the largest and cleanest lakes in the Muskoka region. The location of the cottage is like living at home and is only 150 yards from Lake Joseph and you can enjoy both privacy and long sunny days in your own private patio area, complete with Muskoka chairs.
Although the cottage is fully private, this resort is family and kid friendly with a relaxed vibe. From swimming, to golfing, to hiking and just reading a good book there is something for every member of your party to enjoy. Rocky Crest golf course is rated #14 in Canada by 'Score Golf' for its seamless routing, granite outcroppings and giant log clubhouse
The cottage is surrounded by lovely landscaping and nature trails and it is a short two minute walk down to the lakefront resort where you will find restaurants, waterfront activities, giant inflatables for the kids (and adults) to play on, 2 docks with lounge chairs, a pool and hot tub. Another pool (salt-water) is located a 5 minute walk away at the Armishaw centre. At the Armishaw centre, you will find a ping pong table, kids camp (fee, summer only), bikes, a basketball court, tennis courts, another small lake, hiking trails and a putting green (can borrow racquets, tennis balls, basketballs).
If you are not in the mood to cook there are three restaurants on site, 2 at the waterfront and one at the golf course. These are open seasonally only, closing at the end of October. The dining at the golf course, overlooking the 18th hole is spectacular.
Although summer is high season, fall and winter are lovely in their own right. Golfing and many of the activities continue in the fall, and of course the changing of the leaves is spectacular. A favourite activity is a long hike through the woods. In winter the Villa is downright cozy. The kids love to play outside in the mile high snowdrifts and tobogganing. There is also a ice rink on the pond, but its availability depends on the weather. Downhill skiing at Mt St Louis is 30 minutes away) are just a short list of winter activities on ploughed roads and walking paths.
