Property description

This boathouse is the perfect place in Cottage Country. Stairs or a ramp lead into the boathouse. The boathouse is located right on top of the water with a large deck on the second level with clear glass railings providing unobstructed views of the lake. Because it has a southern exposure, sun is available all day long. The large deck is perfect for sun bathing, taking in the view (Loons and ducks frequent the area.), dining, or just watching the stars at night. (Meteor Showers in August are jaw dropping!) Lower Docks are on three sides of the boathouse, which make swimming, fishing, or sunning an ideal experience. The biggest bonus of the boathouse is that the lake is visible from the family and dining room on three sides. Whether from the deck or inside, the sights make eating breakfast, lunch and dinner a special treat!

The master bedroom (ensuite) has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed.

There are three rolling cots that may be used for additional sleeping accommodations as well as two comfortable couches in the living room. However, sheets must be used.

You may provide additional blow up mattresses.

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.

The Glen Orchard General Store is only 10 minutes away for quick need items. Restaurants, shopping, and sight seeing in Bala, Bracebridge, and Port Carling are within a short distance. Tennis and golf are also nearby.

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.

VRBO cancellation policy is not accepted by or binding on the owner. If You cancel, any time up until the date which is eight weeks prior to the Check In Date, we will retain $1,000 to cover costs. If you terminate on a date which is less than eight weeks before your Check In Date, the entire amount you have paid to us will be kept by us unless we are able to find a subsequent occupant at the same rate.

Payment via VRBO Payment carries a $200 charge + a service fee (pricing according to VRBO).

Owner info

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!
