Muskoka Lakes Township cottage description

Boating paradise only 1.5 hours from Toronto!

Waterfront, on the Severn River (part of the Trent-Severn System) just minutes from Sparrow Lake. APPROX. Lat Long.: 44.790501,-79.392239.

Two screened porches (front and rear) plus an outside deck overlooking the river and lawns.

Lovely cottage on the Severn River at the border between Muskoka and Severn Township. Only a few minutes up river from the rugged beauty of Sparrow Lake, and downriver from Trent-Severn Lock 42 and the warm turquoise water of Lake Couchiching.

Take a spectacular boat trip right from the front door into Georgian bay in only a couple of hours, or boat right to Casino Rama in under an hour! Or, just relax in the screened porch in between swims from the dock. In a quiet location only minutes by car or boat to dining and activities at resorts in Port Stanton.

Three bedrooms, one downstairs and two upstairs. First upstairs bedroom with one double and two twin beds, second upstairs bedroom with one double bed and two twin beds. Downstairs master bedroom with one double bed. Lots of parking.

                  Norman Bethune House is nearby, in Gravenhurst.

                  The Torrance Barrens preserve is a 15-minute drive from the cottage, along Muskoka Road 13. Directly on the Trent-Severn waterway. Only 2 KM from Sparrow Lake. Some of the best fishing in Central Ontario right off the dock.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: Family owned cottage near our childhood home. Our family has looked after this cottage on behalf of other owners for many years. We recently decided to purchase it for our use.

                  Why the Owner Chose Muskoka Lakes Township:
                  This area is close to amenities, and well serviced, yet has a truly removed-from-it-all feel. Lots of great boating right at the dock. Sparrow Lake is only five minutes down stream. Georgian Bay, Lake Couchiching, and all the other great places on the Trent-Severn are close by. The Torrance Barrens is a 20-minute drive. The private Muskoka Wildlife Park is 10-minutes away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  It's so wonderful to wake up in the morning and sit out on the porch and enjoy breakfast while looking over the river and the birds and wildlife. Later in the day we have a choice to go biking, hiking, or boating right from the cottage.
