About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

LOCATION: MUSKOKA, Ontario, Canada (SIX MILE LAKE)

FABULOUS Muskoka cottage constructed in 2003, accessible via Highway 400#

1 1/2 hour drive north of Toronto. This beautiful cottage is located on a year round road, plowed by the Township in the Winter to make driving an ease. No steep hills or dangerous curves. Parking for 3 cars.

ACCOMMODATION:

Situated in quiet Barefoot Bay on picturesque Six Mile Lake. This delightfully decorated cottage has much character and exudes warmth and old country charm. Knotty pine throughout, and cathedral ceilings. The kitchen is well equipped for all those great cooks! A large center island with granite counters and muskoka stone facing provides extra space for entertaining or light snacks! A B/I maytag oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, bar fridge and freezer, central vac, complete the kitchen. A 2 piece washroom is also located on the main floor for your convenience. A large rear entry to the cottage with ample space for coats and boots, plus a laundry area with washer/dryer and sink is certainly a handy feature. The ground level also includes a guest/3rd bedroom perfect for family members who do not want to tackle stairs. A sunroom/kids 2nd TV room/game room also features a pull out futon.


Relaxing in the living room you can enjoy natural sunlight all day long (southwest exposure) with panoramic views of the lake and pretty creek which runs parallel to the cottage. The living room is equipped with surround sound, satellite flat screen 46' tv, stereo and plenty of movies for the kids plus some interesting furniture pieces, not to mention many magazines and games.

The huge master bedroom is located on the second floor with beautiful views, cathedral ceiling and dormer. The second bedroom is situated beside the master with 2 twin beds. A spacious 4 piece washroom with separate shower stall and oversized tub is located on the second floor. The second floor overlooks the living and dining area from above.

OUTDOORS:

The lot is level with a sandy beach for small children. Sun all day. Take the paddle boat for a ride around the quiet bay (must be accompanied by an adult with life jackets) - no heavy boat traffic here. A large dock is located beside the beach with room for lawn chairs - OR just simply catch that big fish off the dock. A hammock at the waters edge for that afternoon nap. The screened in porch is ideal for bug season and lower tiered deck offers ample space for entertaining or just enjoying the views - even when its raining or snowing you can stay dry and still experience the outdoors! The deck features a patio set for six - two lawn chairs, four custom wooden muskoka chairs and of course the deck would not be complete without the swinging bench. The kids will also enjoy the trampoline to the rear of the cottage - (for kids use only please).

The property has 268 feet of water frontage. 1.7 acres of mature forest, towering white pines and plenty of muskoka rock. A fire pit is located at the waters edge perfect for evening roasting of the marshmallows. Enjoy the amazing stars and on some occasions the northern lights!

Two outdoor lighting systems - one to light the 2 tiered deck; the other to light the path down to the lake and fire pit area will extend your enjoyment into the evening.

A short walk to basketball courts and tennis courts is just down the road.

The lake offers plenty to do - from visiting the 2 local marinas for sundries, bait, movie rentals and of course ice cream for the kids, - you are located centrally on the lake to access both Marinas. A public boat launch is located across the lake. Six Mile Lake Marina rent boats.

Six Mile Lake is by far one of the prettiest lakes in Muskoka - dotted with islands and white pines as far as the eye can see. Plenty of rocks in the water so watch when you are maneuvering a boat - although they are marked with buoys. The Six Mile Provincial Park is also located at the south end of the lake. Pretty Channel offers a scenic waterfall which if you are adventurous you can ride down on your bottoms - a favorite amongst the locals. Enjoy outstanding boating upon pristine and very scenic waters.

The stream that runs along side the cottage enters from the marsh at the rear of the property - once a large blue heron nesting area. The bay often features white lily pads. We maintain a natural shoreline so you often see Canada geese, loons, herons, small fish, crayfish, frogs and painted turtles.

WINTER RENTALS - SNOW SKIING:

35 minute drive to ski hills Moonstone and Horseshoe Valley!

The cottage was designed for year round use. A forced air heating system will handle the coldest winter night while the wood burning fireplace may be all you need on those cold evenings. Plenty of wood in the woodshed.

CONCLUSION:

WHY VACATION IN MUSKOKA?

We have many repeat renters - who enjoy the tranquility of the area - Spring and Summer - enjoy swimming, kayaking, boat tours - on Georgian Bay, fishing, golfing on one of the many local courses in the area, free water ski show in Bala each Tuesday evening, exploring Muskoka, hiking along the MacDonald River or many snowmobile trails. Visiting the local Whata Cranberry Growers estate. Shopping in chic Bala and Port Carling. Visiting the famous Big Chute locks entering Georgian Bay. Autumn brings Indian Summer, morning mists, loons calling though the crisp air, fox and beaver plus North America's most spectacular fall colors. Winter offers ice fishing, snow skiing and snowboarding at Moonstone/Mount St. Louis and Horehore Valley Resorts. Snowmobiling with access to thousands of kilometers of groomed snowmobile trails just minutes away from the cottage - all maps provided.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We built this property in 2001 - a long time dream to own a beautiful rustic cottage in a private setting - we found the ideal lot southwest exposure on a year round round - perfect for our 4 children - especially the little one who was only 3 when we began building. I love to paint to unwind at the cottage so you will see my paintings around the cottage of cottage scenes, wildlife, sunsets and dawn of cottage country. Believe it everyone can paint - I only started painting when when we built the cottage - so hopefully you will get that paintbrush out too and try your hand at it! We hope you enjoy our little piece of paradise and unwind too with your family!

Why the Owner Chose Township of Georgian Bay, ON, Canada:
There is so much to do in the area and so much beauty to enjoy!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Serenity!
