Newly Renovated Clean 4Bd, 2Ba Lake Muskoka Beauty
About Carole Baxter
Our family with two small kids uses this Muskoka cottage all summer long. When we're not able to use it we love to share the beauty of Lake Muskoka with others.
Carole Baxter purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Carole Baxter chose Bala
It's all about the point of land. We've been to other cottages which are either too far from the water - who wants to hike down 100 steps to the water, or is in a deep forest (buggy), or is too remote. This property was the perfect cottage. It's very close to town, for groceries, markets, restaurants and of course ice cream. It gets great cell coverage, which we needed, is 30 gradual feet to the water, and gets a constant cross breeze, which means no bugs! We eat all our meals outside. The kids love fresh waffles with local maple syrup and fresh picked strawberries and blueberries from the local markets. The water is clean and deep, there are 2 docks with different exposures, so the sun seekers can roast while those who want some shade can read while watching the swimmers. It has something for everyone.
What makes this Cottage unique
The fireplace 5 ft from the lake! Go for a midnight swim and warm up in front of the fire.

The Best Sunsets
We stayed at Carole's vacation rental in late May. Carole was friendly, responsive and made the process so easy for us. The property was recently renovated and is very cosy on the inside. The highlight of the property is the waterline and the views off the water. There are three spots to get into the water and there is a perfect amount of tree coverage for sunrises and sunsets.
I'd highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a getaway at a beautiful, private and quiet cottage.
We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We are a family of 4, with two teenagers, and it was big enough we all had our own space, yet small enough that we spent a lot of time together. The docks and large rock by the lake had awesome views, and my husband and son enjoyed fishing from them. There are some cute little towns nearby for shopping and restaurants too. It was a great get-away.
Lovely cottage with a beautiful view!
Absolutely loved our time at the cottage. It is comfy and cozy on a chilly night and has a great view of the lake with afternoon sun on the dock!
Beautiful cottage, beautiful location.
What a great place!. Stayed for a long weekend in mid September. Weather was perfect, lake was beautiful and the cottage was fantastic.
The cottage had everything needed to have a worry free vacation. The owner, Carole was very helpful and accommodating. Bala is only a 5 or so minute drive from the cottage and has all the amenities you need, grocery store, butcher and LCBO. I would definitely recommend staying at this very picturesque location, and I am sure we will be booking again next year.
Muskoka at it's best
Well I don't want to tell you about an incredible cottage on the best lot on Lake Muskoka with a view and sunsets to die for but I guess I have.! Incredible majestic White pines and gently sloping property to 2 docks and an amazing rock point set you in a cottage location you don't want the day to end except for the ridiculous sunsets you will have to frame and put on the wall. The cottage is clean and newly renovated with beautiful wood floors and a huge dining table inside and out. The deck is fantastic and you could sit there all day. Great fishing right there in front of the cottage. The pictures are good but much better in person. Can't wait to stay again.
Beautiful cottage at the lake front
Four friends and I stayed at Carole's cottage for the May long weekend and despite having lost power due to a storm for a short period, had a fantastic stay. The cottage itself is very spacious, comfortable and has an awesome back deck. There are so many places to sleep none of us even had to share a bed! Having two bathrooms was ideal for all of us women as well. The large kitchen and BBQ made it easy to cook all weekend. The lake is right out back and there is a massive rock my friends and I spent an afternoon sunbathing and listening to music on. Carole is a lovely host, easy to get a hold and ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Would definitely stay again and recommend to all.
