Brand New!! Luxury Lake Muskoka Cottage With Chef's Kitchen And Sandy Beach

Bedrooms 5
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


Photos and Description of the Port Carling vacation cottage rental

3,500 Sq.ft. - 5+ Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Cottage; Sleeps 12

Welcome to our brand new 5+ bedroom, two-storey cottage on beautiful Lake Muskoka! This new construction has everything that a legendary Muskoka cottage demands, but with all the modern amenities. Watch our drone video - just click on the Video icon above to get a birds-eye view of the cottage and surrounding area!!

Please note we only list our cottage rental on VRBO and the HomeAway family of websites. These have proven to be the most secure websites available for cottage rentals and therefore you will not see our listing on any other rental site. Please notify us if you do see our listing elsewhere because bookings should not be made anywhere but here on VRBO.

Construction was newly completed in Summer 2015. The cottage sits right on Lake Muskoka, nestled at the end of a quiet bay. We love that our bay has very little boat traffic, unlike what is experienced out in the main part of the Lake. This provides for a much quieter cottage experience and is much safer for the kids. We have a very-rare sandy beach and shallow water, ideal for kids to play in. The large beachfront with shallow access combined with a gently sloped property provides great peace of mind to parents and easy access to the water. Be among the first to enjoy this beautiful cottage, cozy environment and open concept, all designed to maximize those precious family memories.

Located just 10 minutes from both Bala and Port Carling (by boat or car) and close to a marina, why not stay where National Geographic selected as the #1 pick on their World’s Ten Best Trips of Summer list.

Some Unexpected Amenities for Your Enjoyment:

Bedrooms - All 5 bedrooms are generously sized: Main floor Master has 1 King bed and an adjoining en suite bathroom, 3 bedrooms come with Queen beds and the last bedroom is nicknamed the "Bunk Bed Palace" and contains a beautiful custom built bunk bed system comprising 5 separate sleeping areas in the one bedroom (1 double bed, 3 twin beds and 1 roll-out trundle twin bed). The kids will never want to sleep any other place when they see the Bunk Bed Palace. The beds all boast brand new Kingsdown mattresses which will ensure a very comfortable sleep every night! All bedrooms also have large windows to optimize the views and they all contain large ceiling fans which provide for generous air flow.

Air Conditioning and Year Round Heating - Yes we do have central air conditioning for those very hot summer nights!! Our friends thought we were crazy to install a/c at the cottage but we wanted to preserve some of those home comforts we all enjoy in the city. We've also heard from several friends who rent cottages without a/c that some nights can be unbearable and we didn't want to spoil the Muskoka experience because of a hot night. So be rest assured our cottage has it all for both summer and forced air gas heating during the winter. We are a 12-month property that can be enjoyed all year long.

Chef's Kitchen - You will be blown away by the kitchen! Caesarstone counters, uniquely finished granite island, stainless steel appliances, double wall ovens, 6 burner gas cook top and large refrigerator. The kitchen comes stocked with almost every amenity one could need for preparing those family dinners together. The large open concept opens onto a very long wooden harvest table where family members can enjoy meals together. The kitchen views provide unobstructed vistas of the Lake and all activities that happen outside, so parents have the peace of mind of knowing where the kids are at all times. You may never want to cook in another kitchen again!

Polished Concrete Floors - We also took an interesting design approach with our construction project and opted for polished concrete floors instead of hardwood flooring on the main level. After our research, we found this was one of the greenest ways to finish a cottage floor because polished concrete is very hypo-allergenic, extremely easy to clean and it stays very cool (on your feet) in the summer and the radiant heated floors stay very warm in the winter. We just love how our floors turned out and we know you will too!!

All three bathrooms contain generously sized walk-in showers, and 2 of the bathrooms have separate tubs.

Kids Bunkie Outside - We also have a Kids Bunkie, located adjacent to the cottage property. Kids love to sleep in the Bunkie because it's like their very own cottage. This structure is relatively new and contains a double futon alongside a set of twin bunk beds and a little sitting area for the kids to play. Over the years we've often used the Bunkie as an overflow sleeping area.

We've literally tried to think of everything - all focused on family comfort! The few guests we've hosted thus far have loved how stocked everything is within the cottage. They've appreciated the fact that basically only clothes and food are required for a week away in Muskoka at our cottage. We believe it's important to preserve the authentic cottage experience while providing the many comforts of home.
