About the Property

Stay directly over the water on the shores of Pristine Skeleton Lake

Boathouse living offers beautiful panoramic views of the lake from every side.

Enjoy peaceful nights as you listen to the soothing sound of the water/loons in our upper scale boathouse, built directly on the water of popular Skeleton Lake. Known as 'Muskoka's Best Kept Secret', in the heart of Muskoka, Skeleton Lake offers sandy swimming coves, great fishing, water sports, hiking and warm summer sunsets.

Our beautiful custom built boathouse is very cozily decorated with antiques, has an open concept living room with queen size pull out sofa, dining room and fully equipped kitchen (incl. dishwasher/microwave). There is also a flat screen/satellite TV. A separate bedroom offers a gorgeous view of the lake while lying in bed. There are lower docks for swimming as well as a large upper deck including several Muskoka chairs for sun tanning and BBQ for your outdoor cooking. There are two kayaks and a paddle boat to enjoy your travels around the little islands that are seen from the boathouse. There is also a boat slip available. A boat launch is only one bay away!

Skeleton Lake is 10 minutes from Diamond in the Ruff Golf Course, as well as a 18-20 minute scenic ride to the villages/towns of Port Carling, Rosseau, Bracebridge and Hunstville where you can enjoy exploring all of the quaint shops and summer time markets. (Bracebridge's popular Santa's Village is a 25 min. drive away).

Please note that seasonal rentals both spring and fall are a minimum of 3 nights. Boathouse is set up for one adult couple and two children under the age of 12. There is an additional charge of 50.00 per person per night for two adult couples. Maximum number of people is 4. We are open from the Canadian May long weekend until Canadian Thanks giving. We are closed in the winter months.
