About the property

Cottage, 6 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Relax at this classic Muskoka cottage with over 1,000 feet of private shoreline in Beaumaris, the historic center of Lake Muskoka. Sit in the oversized screened porch or on the granite patio and enjoy the miles long, island dotted view down the lake. The cottage is on a private peninsula so water surrounds you on three sides, like an island but with easy drive in access.

Sail the Sunfish sailboat or enjoy paddling the canoe and kayak. Enjoy boating on the biggest of the 'big three' Muskoka Lakes.

Two separate cottages joined by a fully enclosed breezeway allows you to have privacy from your kids...or your parents. One cottage has hardwood floors throughout, solid pine paneling and a massive granite fireplace. The other cottage has wall to wall Berber carpet, a wood stove and huge floor to cathedral ceiling windows overlooking the lake. A third option is the two story boathouse with a pine panelled, fully finished bedroom on top with two beds and a ping pong table. Get there early to choose your favourite room.

Since the cottage is on a private point, you can follow the sun all day, starting on the boathouse side with a large dock and swimming raft, then follow the sun to watch it set from the swimming dock on the other side complete with cedar chairs and a water slide.

Close to cottage country activities in Port Carling or Bracebridge, but you will never want to leave!

What makes this cottage unique

With Lake Muskoka on three sides this cottage has the feel of a private island with the convenience of drive in/drive out mainland property.

Our grandfather had the pick of Muskoka over 60 years ago when he bought this land, and he chose it for the miles long view from this central location on Lake Muskoka.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came all the way from England and it was worth the distance - what a BRILLIANT PLACE! Muskoka Lake is beautiful and so is this cottage - we've had the best time!

True Muskoka Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is as nice as it gets in Muskoka. The listing photos were very accurate. The cottage is in the classic family style. Nothing too pretentious but with lots of space inside and out to relax. We are a family with adult children in their mid twenties and everyone really enjoyed themselves. The owner was thoroughly co-operative and very responsive to our inquiries.

Extensive 270 degree lakefront cottage/chalet at Beaumaris on Lake Muskoka

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a week for my close friends and family. The photos and online description does not do the place justice. The place is owner managed ... and it shows. The cottage was very homey and full of everything you can imagine wanting: games (including a ping pong table), watercraft, kitchenware, beds/linens, lots of isolated spots (indoor and out) to enjoy the lake, the property and even just the view. The place was quiet, spacious, easy to find and offered plenty of parking. I only wish I had stayed long enough to really appreciate all the magnificent aspects of this property. We even had a chance to speak with the neighbours, who were very welcoming and friendly. The owner (George) was very accommodating from our first inquiries until the end (he returned the entire security deposit with no qualms). I really can't think of anything bad to say about the property or the rental experience.
