Why Cindy chose Muskoka Lakes Township

This Property has it all- Only 7 minutes to town- located on a Island you drive too! Has easy walk in beach area for young guests and 5 feet off end of dock! Great area close to everything. Highly sought after Exclusive Address in Muskoka. Great Lake and close to restaurants, golf and shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I think I speak for everyone when I say that we will never forget our experience at the Beach House. It was absolutely magnificent. The guys LOVED the basketball game so much that the girls had to stop them and force them to play outside a few times...haha! The beds are incredibly comfortable, the way the house is decorated is absolutely gorgeous. We loved the entire thing. The slide was also a huge hit, and the fire pit was one of our favorite places on the site! You can't put a price on heaven :)



Lastly, everyone was so impressed with how you thought of everything in the kitchen especially...from martini shaker to splatter screen for frying pans. We loved that. I really can't say enough great things about this place. It is so special. Beach House is a star! :)



I'm sure that the availability is dwindling down for the rest of the summer now, but if you have any weekends available (for a Thursday to Sunday) in late August, or early September we would absolutely LOVE to come back this year. Let me know what you have available if anything. We are also committing to next summer so we will get an idea of our date range for that too.



Thanks again for everything!

Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beach House in Fall 2016. We spent a weekend there, and left wishing we had a third night to spend. Absolutely no complaints about the property. The condition of the building and surrounding area is immaculate, and the amenities don't seem to end. The kitchen is fully equipped, there was enough square footage for 13 people comfortably, and the outdoor seating area is picturesque. We wanted for nothing the whole weekend. Thank you to Cindy who was prompt and diligent in her communications. Highly recommend.

Cottage Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This review is a long time coming but no less heartfelt all the same. We stayed at Cindy's cottage last Fall. We were two families with eight children in all, ranging from 17 years to five years old.

The cottage was just perfect in every way. There was absolutely nothing that could have been done to make our stay more relaxing. There was ample space for everyone. The children played outside, and in the games paradise that is the basement, and then there was lots of comfortable sofa space for us all to gather by the fireside for board games in the evenings.

Waking up every morning, looking out at the lake, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The beds were so comfortable and the decor just a pleasure to look at.

Thank you, Cindy, for providing such a delightful, restful experience and for being so easy to deal with. We shall most certainly be back.

Fantastic luxury cottage with every amenity!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (which includes three kids and two grandparents) had a lovely Thanksgiving vacation. Our kids even swam (for all of 30 seconds) in gorgeous Lake Muskoka! This cottage is the utmost in luxurious accommodations. The most comfortable mattresses on earth, every kitchen appliance or utensil you could need, lots of fun games for the kids and young at heart. Many great things to do nearby. Hiking, shopping and dining. Highly recommended!

Amazing Snowmobile Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent March break at this beautiful, spacious cottage with some of our friends. All 4 of our families slept comfortably in the beautifully decorated bedrooms. This five star cottage is very clean and bright. One of my favourite rooms is the “Muskoka Room”, off of the kitchen. It has a calming atmosphere that makes you relax once you enter. The entire cottage was so cozy and welcoming.

Whether you are spending your time inside or outside there is always something to do. We spent our time ice fishing, skating on the lake and snowmobiling during the day. The trails were stunning and easy to access from the cottage. We took the snowmobile around the lake to see all of the magnificent cottages. While we spent our evening outside enjoying some drinks by the fire pit, the kids made use of the rec room where they played pool, basketball and ping pong until they fell asleep.

I can’t imagine having this much fun at another location. I look forward to coming back again next year!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at The Beach House, and it was amazing! I agree with all of the great reviews that this property has received so I will try not to repeat anything except that the cottage and décor is stunning! It is big, bright, spacious, clean and comfortable. There are lots of places to lounge, I even loved the little nook under the giant TV! The views from each window are spectacular. We were a group of ten adults celebrating a birthday, ranging in ages of 21-65. We were all equally impressed.

I would like to add that we had the pleasure of staying there in the winter. Not only was it gorgeous, but there was plenty for us to do. The snowmobiling was excellent and near all of the marked trails. There was an ice rink and snow shoes as well. Evenings were spent cooking and enjoying good food, wine, cozy fires and games in the game room. I highly recommend a winter stay.

Lastly, Cindy was so accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. The highway was closed due to a major accident on our first night, so we couldn't leave until the next day. Cindy offered us an extra night an no extra charge.

Overall a fantastic weekend - do not hesitate to book your next vacation at The Beach House :)
