Muskoka Lakes Township cottage description

Rustic, family, waterfront cottage, on a private, protected cove offers peace and quiet. This cottage has been in our family for almost 40 years providing a relaxing vacation escape for all. Wildlife abounds in this natural setting with almost daily sightings of loons, great blue herons, muskrats, woodpeckers, chipmunks and turtles. Endless hours can be spent exploring the cove by canoe or kayak. The protected cove offers a safe place for kids to try their hand at canoeing while within sight of home. There is a bunk house,or 'bunkie' about 40 feet from the main cottage where kids enjoy staying, allowing adults their own space in the evening hours.

                              Location

                              About 2 hours north of Toronto, off Highway 11, the cottage is located on the Severn River, across from Morrison Landing and the Lantern Marina. About 5 miles upriver from Swift Rapids, lock 43, and about 7 miles down river from Sparrow Lake.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1973

                              About the owner: My two siblings and I grew up in Ohio. Our family purchased the cottage in the early 70's when our mother was a teacher, and we spent the summers of our youth at the cottage, swimming, fishing and boating.

                              Why the Owner Chose Muskoka Lakes Township:
                              We spent our summers at the cottage, but now that we live so far away, we are unable to visit as often as we'd like. It holds such cherished memories that we can't bear to sell the place, so have decided to rent it during the weeks that it would otherwise go unused.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              The Severn River offers the unique opportunity to endlessly explore the river in either direction, while maintaining the overall look and feel of a lake. When you hear the word 'river' many people immediately assume there is a strong current and moving water. There of course is a current but it is only detectable in the few, narrow areas of the river. At our location the river is about a quarter mile wide with no noticeable current. Our cottage is on a protected cove which offers cover from the wind and waves of more open water locations.
