About the Property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10 or 8 if adults only)

Welcome to Mermaid Island, where sun-soaked days on your private beach are followed by beautiful sunsets nestled in your Muskoka chair. This haven offers views that inspired the Group of Seven and other artists for over a century. Explore the 3-acre property, with it's lush forest and rocky terrain perfect for mini-adventurers. You may even stumble upon some wild blueberries! On windy days, head to the back of the island, where the comfort of a secluded bay awaits with another large deck and dock.

Huge decks maximize the opportunity for outdoor living. A large deck extends across the entire front of the cottage. The lower deck boasts an eight person hot tub with stunning views. A large dock can accommodate more than five boats, with deep swimming water off the end.

Inside, you will find white washed pine walls and ceilings and reclaimed barn wood floor boards that create a rustic aesthetic. The furnishings and amenities offer all of the comforts you would expect in a luxury rental.

Large, sliding doors not only offer incredible vistas of the bay, but allow the glorious breeze to flow through the cottage. The large open-concept main living area incorporates living, dining, and kitchen. Snuggle up in the chair-and-a-half in front of the large, stone fireplace in the living room. A television with playstation 2 is located in the living room as well. There is ample seating for twelve at the harvest table in the dining room. The kitchen is a masterpiece, with stunning Soapstone countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and a comfortable island.It is fully equipped, with every cooking utensil you would need to prepare Thanksgiving Dinner. Adjacent to the main living area is a separate room with a high-definition LCD television with Wi-Fi enabled surround sound blue ray player and NetFlix subscription.

Four comfortable bedrooms will accommodate your family and friends. All bedrooms have ceiling fans. The Master has a king sized bed, crib, and ensuite bathroom. The three remaining bedrooms share a bathroom. The first has a bunk bed system with a double on the bottom, a twin on top and a twin trundle. The second has two twin beds. The third has a queen bed. Blankets and pillows are provided. Please bring your own linens and towels. Both bathrooms have showers only (no bath tubs).

Transportation to this boat-access property is easier than you may think. If you do not have a boat, there are boat rentals available nearby. As well, the marinas in Honey Harbour offer boat taxi services or the number for a private boat taxi can be arranged.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife introduced me to cottaging early on in our relationship and I was hooked. The relaxation that comes with the serenity of being on a lake just doesn't happen in the city. Now that I am a dad with three young boys, relaxation has been replaced by play, and I'm loving every minute of it! I know the memories we will build for our boys at this special place will last a life time.

Why the Owner Chose Honey Harbour, ON, Canada:
My wife and I bought this cottage in Honey Harbour for its stunning scenery, amazing boating, and family friendly atmosphere. The added bonus is that you get that quintessential Muskoka feel in less then 2 hours from Toronto! You can't beat that.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love that we have to take the boat everywhere we go. It's a mindset that we have embraced and thoroughly enjoy. Every time we get in the boat it is an adventure!
