The River House is well suited to young and old alike. Situated on one acre of level land and with 330' of waterfront, the single level residence can sleep up to nine peope in its two bedrooms (one with a Queen bed, and one with a convertible Twin/King and Chaise/Single), a sunroom with Double sized sofa bed, and Double sofa bed in the living room. The house is a true cottage in style, it has heat, electricity and running water. But the house is not what you've come for!
With its strategic location on a one acre point of level land, and surrounded by 330' of water, you get practically every exposure from the dock with the exception of true West; though due to the shape of the neighbouring River Delta, there are excellent sunsets from the dock and hot tub through the summer.
The cottage itself is set back only 20 feet from the water at the front side, and boasts a large side yard (towards the dock) and a huge back yard. Historic placement of the cottage on the land, and some well placed mature trees, afford quite a bit of separation from the neighbours. You have all the privacy of a Muskoka cottage with easy access to the urban amenities of Port Carling.
At night, you can sit under the magnificent Muskoka stars, or enjoy a quiet campfire.
You can relax on the large dock and watch the hisotric steamship Segwun or Wenonah go by, or enjoy the parade of antique boats that travel the river. Fishing from the dock or birdwatching from the six person hot tub can be excellent as you watch the sun go down over the river delta, and the kids can play on the level land with shallow water at the shoreline.
The dock is an oversized, newly built steel dock with 400sq ft of decking. As well, for your boating enjoyment, there is a protected slip in which to moor your boat, and enjoy uninhibited swimming off the front.
A ten minute boatride can take you to either Lakes Muskoka (direct), Rosseau, or Joseph (through the historic Port Carling Locks). Paddle directly across the river (about 200 yards) to the best playground in Muskoka at Hanna Park, which also hosts the local Farmer's Market on Thursdays. There is a boat launch, small walking/biking trail, volleyball court and great beach at Hanna Park as well.
Take a short drive, or paddle into Port Carling for great shopping, gourmet food, and amazing nightlife. For some longer excursions, the River House is a fifteen minute drive from numerous excellent hiking trails, and a half hour drive from the Towns of Bracebridge or Gravenhurst.
