Muskoka – once discovered, never forgotten
Year Purchased: 2012
Why the Owner Chose Lake Muskoka:
We purchased this property in the fall of 2012 as we had been cottaging in Muskoka for years and absolutely fell in love with the area. No where in the world can you experience the breath taking views while feeling you are at home away from home. We were cottaging with friends down the road when one morning during a walk through the area, we stumbled across this gem of a cottage with a spectacular boathouse! It was everything we could want in a cottage from the proximity to the water (a stone throw away), a gradual slope to the water (as we have a small child and safety is a huge concern), a large boathouse with a huge amount of deck space, perfect for relaxing with friends, and docking space for boat parking. In addition, this cottage is located on a very quiet dead end street so traffic and noise is minimal.
