Full kitchens and washer and dryers available in BOTH the cottage and boathouse.
This cottage and boathouse combination is the perfect place in Cottage Country located off of Mortimer’s Point Road (Quiet inlet bay on Muskoka Lake. Since it’s a relatively small and quiet bay, the water temperature is warmer than other areas.). The rental offers a full living quarter’s boathouse.
The cottage sleeps roughly 18 people and the boathouse sleeps 8-10 as well.
The cottage has a master ensuite with a king-sized bed on the main floor. The bedroom also has a 42-inch flat screen TV. Another ensuite bedroom upstairs has a double-sized bed. The 'Judge Bedroom' upstairs offers a trundle bed so that two can sleep on the bed and one on the pull out portion sleeping a total of 3. The bedroom ensuite in the basement has a queen-sized bed. A granite fireplace gives the living room and upstairs a gorgeous view. Reclaimed brick offers a marvelous look of the fireplace in the basement. The large deck from the cottage looks out onto Muskoka Lake where ducks, loons, and the occasional mink love to visit. The kitchen has all the amenities needed to make the perfect Muskoka meal.
The boathouse below offers southern exposure which means sun is available all day long. The main large deck of the boathouse is perfect for sun bathing, taking in the view, dining, or just watching the stars at night. (Meteor Showers in August are jaw dropping!) Lower Docks are on three sides of the boathouse, which make swimming, fishing, or sunning an ideal experience available in mere seconds. The biggest bonus of the boathouse is that the lake is visible from the family and dining room on three sides. Whether from the deck or inside, the sights make eating breakfast, lunch and dinner a special treat! The master ensuite bedroom of the boathouse has a king sized bed with a private bathroom including a bidet. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed. A third room (Teen Room) located on the same level as the docks includes a sink, a bunk bed that sleeps two, and two twins.
You may dock your boat by the docks. There is a possibility that a 20 foot boatslip may be included with your rental. Please inquire if you're interested in this added feature. There is a canoe, rowboat, and paddleboat for you to explore the lake included with the rental.
Chairs are available for enjoying the view from the docks or deck from either the cottage or boathouse. The decks on both the cottage and boathouse have a patio set. The swimming area around the boathouse ranges from 3 feet to 7 feet close to the boathouse and then deeper (~20 ft.) further out. The water temperature is warmer as it’s located in a smaller, shallow bay on Lake Muskoka.
A fire pit is available for use when fire bans are lifted.
The Glen Orchard General Store is only 10 minutes away for quick need items. Restaurants, shopping, and sight seeing in Bala, Bracebridge, and Port Carling are within a short distance. Tennis and golf are also nearby. Lake Muskoka connects to Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph in the heart of Port Carling. Port Carling is not far either by motorboat or by car.

ReviewsWrite a review
My friends and I, who have just graduated University, decided to take a cottage trip to celebrate. This cottage was truly breathtaking. Not only did it have everything we needed and more, the scenery and building were just incredible. Myself and my friends were truly blessed to have found a place as awesome as this. We had only stayed for 3 nights, but we do wish we could have stayed more. We most definitely will be coming back for a reunion sometime within the year.
