About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Detached 1BR unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

NOTE: PRICES ARE QUOTED IN US DOLLARS. To convert to another currency, go to Rates tab.
Lake Muskoka 4 BR cottage with all amenities and a sandy beach. Safe, level lot surrounded by trees with plenty of privacy. New granite and stainless steel kitchen, dishwasher, washer and dryer. The main house has 3 bedrooms: a queen size master bedroom with a picture window overlooking the lake, a lakefront guest room with a queen bed which is perfect for 1-2 adults, and in the third bedroom, kids can sleep in 2 twins.
If you have guests, or someone wants more privacy, take advantage of the separate bunkie, with 2 twin beds, its own bathroom and shower. The bunkie has 2 rooms, and can sleep up to 4 people if you use the pull-out couch.
Having a southern exposure in Muskoka is probably the main thing to look for if you like the sun. Here you will find expansive multi-level southern decks for relaxing or dining, and if you want to get away, go up to the boathouse sundeck where there is peace and quiet, a jaw-dropping view of the lake, and a patio table for dining or entertaining.
Ever lay out at night looking for shooting stars? You'll find the meteor shower here every August in a cottage country starry sky.
The water is warm, thanks to the shallow bay, which also does a good job of keeping away roaming boaters.
You can dock your boat here, or use our canoe and kayaks to explore the lake. Have your morning coffee at the end of the dock, and listen to the loons.
Need to grab something? The General Store in Glen Orchard is 5 minutes away. Restaurants in Bala, Port Carling, and Bracebridge are all within easy reach. Or enjoy nearby golf, tennis and hiking.
This is the vacation you'll remember.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: I've been coming to Muskoka since I was 2, and was lucky to buy a cottage near Bala in 1987. I go there every chance I get, and our 3 kids spent their whole summers swimming, canoeing and being outdoors. Over the years we have upgraded just about everything.

Why the Owner Chose Port Carling, ON, Canada:
Lake Muskoka is a little piece of heaven on earth. Not too hard to get to, but a world away from the city. You want to be on one of the 3 big lakes: Muskoka, Rosseau or Joseph. They all connect in the hub of Port Carling, where shops and restaurants have sprung up and become a fun destination themselves.
