Orillia cottage description
Charming, family cottage with unique 'end of the lane' privacy located on 100 feet of scenic and private Severn River shore line as part of the world famous Trent/Severn Inland Waterway.
Also, large boathouse with 2 bedrooms, and screened in Muskoka Room overlooking the Severn River with beautiful three directional vistas.
A truly 'one only' setting for family, fishing or romantic get-away. Because of the unique privacy we have hosted many 'honeymooners'.
Only 90 minutes from Toronto, Ontario, 15 minutes to Gravenhurst or Orillia, Ontario and only 20 minutes to Ontario's most famous Las Vegas style casino - Casino Rama. Check out Casino Rama's website and take in some world class entertainment while you're here!
Minutes to many golf courses.
Newly renovated four piece bath with tub surround & shower, two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a set of double bunks (two above,two below). Two other bedrooms in our boathouse with another bunk bed (one above, two below) plus an antique 3/4 bed with new custom made mattress. The boathouse also has a screened in 'Muskoka' room. Lift the window flaps to reveal the gorgeous Severn River and natural Muskoka shoreline vistas! The boathouse is the perfect place for teens or privacy for the other couple or for simply enjoying your morning coffee as you look out over the river from an elevated perch.
Large eat-in, fully equipped ski-lit country kitchen with twin skylights. Total comfort and functionality.
Sunken living room with wrap around windows, oak bar, T/V with satellite, VCR & DVD player. Furnished with comfortable reclining Lazyboy furniture, antique leather top coffee and end tables and a classic wood stove to warm those chilly nights.
Sliding glass doors lead to a two level deck with deck furniture and gas BBQ. The elevated deck overlooks the large lawn and boathouse. The view from the deck provides a perfect place from which to view the meandering and enchanting Severn River.
Large lawn for games and bonfire pit. Also, a 20 foot private dock.
*Special feature* - in addition to the indoor tub/shower there is a unique fully enclosed (except for the ceiling) Muskoka Cedar outdoor shower with hot and cold water supply. A truly refreshing enjoyable experience!
Very private setting with excellent swimming, fishing and boating.

Fantastic Location and Host
Fantastic Location and Host
We've just returned from six nights in the cottage - a group of three men on a college reunion. We flew in from various parts of the world and had a great time. We were looking for a quiet getaway that was easily accessible from Toronto airport and this was perfect. The cabin was well equiped and we had lots of fun taking out the boat and canoe down the river. Closeby are many trials and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone seeking a quiet retreat. Joe was also a great host and very helpful for all our needs.

the location was everything joe said it was. We had a nice time, lots of room for all 6 of us. The boating was excellent, went all the way up to Georgian Bay, and all the way down to lake Couchiching.

Looking at the river gave me the most peaceful feeling I have ever experienced. I drew a portrait while sitting in the Muskoka room (screened in on three sides extending over the river) in the adorable boathouse. The silence is perfect and so restful. I felt like I was the only one in a quiet world. Thank goodness I looked up from my work to see a beautiful Blue Herron flying by to perch across the river. I loved everything about this unique rental. I will come back every year.

This place is represented well. My family of 7 stayed there for a full week. The setting is beautiful. The host gracious. The house was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need to walk into a home. It is very warm and inviting. We are from Missouri and put a great deal of faith coming all the way up. It is in a convenient location. Roads are well maintained. I have siblings that are looking for a place to stay. We grew up coming to Orillia as children and will continue to stay in this place if it is available. I had the deposit refund within a week of my stay. I can't say enough good things, really! Joe, Thanks for sharing the beauty of your house. Oh and the boathouse was perfect as well.
