Property description

This cottage and boathouse combination provides a gorgeous setting for hosts and guests.

Many pluses included with this combination rental:

*It's located right on Muskoka Lake which allows you to boat to Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph!
*We include 4 boats with the rental: canoe, kayak, rowboat, and paddleboat.
*There is a fire pit right by the water for evening socializing!
*An automatic propane generator which kicks on during power failures is a huge advantage when vacationing in Muskoka. This gives power to both dwellings. Power interruptions won't interfere with your vacation!
*WIFI and Cable provided!

Cottage:
-Very spacious cottage with 3 levels! The 4 bedrooms are spaced out with one on the main floor, two on the upper floor, and one in the basement. Pull out couches allow for additional sleeping. 3 of the bedrooms are ensuites.
-2 wood burning full fire places (main floor and basement)
-Cedar peaked ceiling on the main floor.
-Large deck overlooking the lake with a patio set and propane barbecue grill.
-2 additional decks for the two upper bedrooms.

Boathouse (Additional pictures and other information on another link provided when you inquire):
-The spacious boathouse has a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a deck with a beautiful view and a full patio set as well as a propane barbecue grill.
-Southern Exposure which means you have sun all day long from sunrise to sunset.
-The boathouse is available separately during off season rentals only. Otherwise, we rent the boathouse with the cottage during prime season. The rate is $2,500 (negotiable) during off peak season.

Further details below:
Cottage: 4 Bedrooms, 2 ½ Baths (Sleeps 14)

Boathouse: 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, (Sleeps 8)

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 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 queen sized trundle bed so that two can sleep on the bed and one on the pull out portion sleeping a total of 3. Both of these bedrooms offer private mini decks overlooking the lake. 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 are 4 BOATS included in the rental: a canoe, rowboat, kayak, and paddleboat. This is a great added amenity for you to explore the lake.

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. Both decks also offer propane barbecues. 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 right by the lake is available for use when fire bans are lifted. This is a great bonus for nighttime socializing!

With so many amenities right on the property (swimming, sunbathing, star gazing, boating, fishing, water skiing) you won't be bored.

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.

About: We have been fortunate enough to vacation and spend our summers at the boathouse and cottage for many years. It is something that we every member of our family cherishes!

Why Muskoka Lakes Township:
Our family has been in the Muskoka region since the 1800's. Since then each generation of the family has spent unbelievable times in Cottage Country. The cottage and boathouse have given our immediate family members memories that will last forever!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage and boathouse offer spectacular views of Muskoka Lake. Water activities are easily attained by being so close to the lake: -swimming, sunbathing, boating with any of the 4 boats included in the rental, fishing, socializing by the fire pit, gazing at the lake, etc. If you vacation here, you'll know why this place is so near and dear to our hearts.
