Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Our family has summered in Bala for 101 years. In the summer of 2011, we purchased this wonderful island. Your bungalow cottage is at the east end of the island. Our 1890-vintage home is at the opposite end of the island.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Muskoka:
Simply the best vacation spot in the world - all of our worldly travelers tell us so. Quiet when you want it, action when you go looking for it. Lake Muskoka is gorgeous, and you can boat for miles. Golfing, tennis, hiking are nearby, and the best swimming in the world are at your doorstep.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Island life can seem a little intimidating at first. Soon you will appreciate the peace, privacy and space. And with ony 100 yards to the landing, you really have the best of both worlds - the convenience of being minutes from town, and the 'get-away-from-it-all' feeling of a private island. The bunglaow has a huge dock facing south - you may need the sun umbrella. The sandy beach has been the place where many children have learned to swim over the past 130 years.
