About the Property

4 Bedroom Plus Bunkie. Sleeps 8+. Screened Porch, Large Deck And Docks.

This three acre property is located at the south end of Six Mile Lake. You can drive right up to the back door. The main floor has a large living room, a bathroom, two bedrooms, and a kitchen/dining room that pours into the large screened in porch. Upstairs has two more large bedrooms and another bathroom. The front deck is eight feet wide and goes the full length of the front of the cottage, stocked with comfy cottage chairs. A walk off the porch takes you to an open grassy area where we play top toss or badminton. Just beyond this is 'Dad's Office' (the barbecue). Follow the brick path down to the water and you'll be at the large main dock, loaded with Muskoka chairs. This is where we spend most of our time. The main dock has two floating arms that allow you to jump out into the eight foot deep water. You can swim over to the kiddie raft (complete with small slide) or just relax on the dock. To the side of the dock is a walk in sandy area; not really a beach, but ok for little kids if you are there watching them. There are two other boat docks on the property. Take a short drive over to the Provincial Park (5 minutes) and spend the day at the beach or take a nature hike. Motorized boats are available for rent at the marina.

Car: Necessary

Six Mile Lake is a land-locked lake with it's own sandy beached Provincial Park and zillions of nooks and crannies. A visitor could spend all their time winding down at the dock, visit the beach with the kids, or go exploring around the lake. There is a smaller bay to the left of us that is a nursery for fish and frogs...a daily exploring activity for the kids. Our non-motorized boats are included, so you can use the paddleboat, kayak and canoe to your heart's content. Power boat rentals are available at the local marina. Although you are not likely to leave once you get here, we are easy travelling distance for day trips to Midland or Parry Sound. Both towns offer full size cinema theatres and many fine restaurants as well as ferries for Island Cruises on Georgian Bay.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Liz grew up in Scarborough but summered in Thousand Islands. After we got married (and paid the house mortgage off) she just had to have a cottage. We found an ad in our local paper that said cottage for sale, million dollar view. Both the description and the price were fairly accurate. We bought it, but could not save the 1952 structure. We built a new cottage, retaining as much of the old furnishings, brick paths, and charm that we could. The 'sauna' at the east end of the property still bears the 1952 etching on its lentel. Forgot to mention; I grew up in Willowdale, and met my dear wife in vet school in Guelph. We've been married since 1986, and have three young men (I used to call them boys) to help with major projects. I practise in Scarborough, Liz is in alternate career paths, and we have lived in Aurora since 1989. Yes we have pets, a Black Lab (Magnum) and a Persian cat (Gertrude). Only the dog is allowed at the cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Township of Georgian Bay, ON, Canada:
Six Mile Lake is the archetypal Muskoka Lake; wispy Eastern Hemlocks lining a rocky granite shoreline. The lake is delightful combination of open and sheltered water. There are two or three very large open areas, suitable for watersports, and many, many bays of varying sizes that are fun to explore and draw fishermen from all over. There is a sandy park at one end, two marinas, five sets of rapids, jumping rocks, frog marshes, blueberry islands, and more. Our bay is large enough to swim and kayak, but small enough to keep out the big wind and waves. We love it. You will too.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is right by the waterfront, but the back is about two acres of entirely wild mixed forest. Raspberries and blackberries grow wild at the entryway. There is an amazing dam/recreational area a five minute walk away. We have seen deer, foxes, bunnies, geese, trumpeter swans, turkeys, ducks, loons by the dozens, the rare blue skink, and mink (I think). Wildlife abounds.
