Property description

This Muskoka beauty is the ideal spot for your vacation needs. The view from atop a large granite rock from the large L shaped deck of the cottage that overlooks Muskoka Lake is breathtaking. The cottage and boathouse combination rental was remodeled in 2012 and has all that you're looking for in a vacation spot in Cottage Country! The 3 bedroom cottage is located near the Acton Island Bridge high on a ridge with a perfect view of the bay. Access to the cottage and boathouse is by car, NO BOAT OR FERRY NEEDED. AGAIN, THE PROPERTY IS ACCESSIBLE BY CAR. The adjacent boathouse included in the rental has that perfect right by the water feel. With the boathouse loft and full bathroom, guests can have an additional living quarters that can't be matched!

The cottage has 3 bedrooms:
-King Sized Bed
-2 Twin Beds
-Bunk Beds (2 twins)

Moreover, the cottage has a fully functioning kitchen with all the pots, pans, dishes, silverware needed. A fireplace and Satellite TV is also included in the rental. A washer and dryer are included with the rental.

The large 'L shaped' deck allows for a great view of the lake. There is a patio set and chairs for viewing. In addition, we have a propane barbecue grill on the deck.

A second deck is on the other side of the cottage off of the bunk bedroom.

The boathouse has a loft with sleeping availability above. The boathouse also has a full bath and mini kitchen area (sink, microwave, mini fridge). If you're renting during colder weather, I'd like to point out that the boathouse doesn't have heat. You may use a space heater though. We do have heat in the cottage.

The dock with swimming ladder right by the water allows for easy access for swimming.

We also have a floating dock included with the rental. It has a ladder for ease to enter/exit the water from the floating dock.

Included in the rental are 3 boats: kayak, canoe, and rowboat.

This cottage/boathouse combination rental is close to Bala by car or boat (10 minutes). It is also not far from Port Carling (15 minutes by car). Shopping and sight seeing are a must in these two nearby towns.

The price during peak season is $3,400/week+$150 (cleaning and mgrs. fee). This is in Canadian funds. A pet can be arranged, but is an additional $150/week. Also, a $200 fee will be added to your payment if paying via the on-line method offered by VRBO. VRBO charges us a fee and we pass that along to you. The other type of payment can be made by electronic transfer avoiding that fee. VRBO also charges an additional service fee that is paid directly to them and not to us through VRBO/credit card payments.

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Even though I stated it was purchased in 2012, it was remodeled at that time, but originally owned by my grandparents and has been in the family since the early 1930's. In fact, my parents honeymooned in the boathouse in the 1940's!

Why the Owner Chose Bala, ON, Canada:
This property obviously has sentimental value because it's been in the family for so long. You'll get that special feel once you enter.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property is very special because you can enjoy the best place in the world, Muskoka!
