About the Property
Boathouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps ~6, 4 in queen/king beds, two on cots)
The master bedroom (ensuite) has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed.
There are two rolling cots that may be used for additional sleeping accommodations.
If you have a boat, you may dock your boat by the docks.
There are 4 boats included with the rental for you to explore the lake: a canoe, rowboat, kayak, and paddleboat.
Chairs are available for enjoying the view from the docks or deck. The swimming area around the boathouse ranges from 3 feet to 7 feet close to the boathouse and then deeper (~20 ft.) further out. The water temperature is warmer as it’s located in a smaller, shallow bay on Lake Muskoka.

Lake Muskoka connects to Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph in the heart of Port Carling. Port Carling is not far either by motorboat or by car.

Why the Owner Chose Muskoka Lakes, ON, Canada:
Our family settled in the area in the late 1800's and since then have been coming to Muskoka. Our parents honeymooned on Acton Island and built this boathouse in the next bay over from Acton Island in the mid 1960’s (with improvements over the years). Now, our children vacation here. It is a place that has and will always be near and dear to us with many generations of our family holding a part of Muskoka in our hearts. If you vacation here, you’ll understand why it is loved so much by us!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This boathouse is a one of a kind and must see. When you wake up, all you have to do is look out on the beautiful Muskoka Lake. The scenery is breath taking. You'll enjoy the sun all day long and enjoy any water activities that you can desire! 4 boats are included with the rental: canoe, rowboat, kayak, and paddleboat. We also have a fire pit by the lake!
