About the Property

Huge wrap around deck 2 bedroom with loft with 4 piece bath sun all day

This Post and Beam two bedroom + loft is a favorite place to stay on the Point. Private with deep water swimming a perfect get away for two to five people. You can relax in the all day sun or lounge in the shadows to read your book. The sunrises are incredible and the evenings are beautiful with sunsets through the whole summer. Star gazing is unsurpassed as the north shore of the bay has few cottage lights to obscure the stars. This Boathouse is cozy but full of natural light. the lapping of the water is a sleep aid that no drug can compare to. A hideaway with fantastic convenience to everything in Muskoka. Easy to get to.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: This property has been in our family since the early 1900's I acquired my lot in 1985 and built the cottage on the other side of my property in 1986. The Boathouse was designed and started to build in summer of 89' completed for use in 1990.

Why the Owner Chose Torrance, ON, Canada:
I grew up here the Post and Beam boathouse overlooks the original cottage of my Great Grandfather. We are going onto the seventh generation of our family here on Bala Bay. My father and uncles sailed, swam, paddled and rowed these waters for over a century. This has been a vacation spot for people from all over the world with many returning over and over through the years. We have hosted many of the bands who have played at the 'Kee To Bala' across the bay for the last 15 years. Many of them preferring the privacy of the Boathouse while they rest up for their nights of entertaining the vacationers of Muskoka. My father helped move the piano into 'Dunn's Pavilion' for the first show in 1942'

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Loons call, the trains whistle and the star gazing from the deck is unsurpassed. Cast a line off the deck or swim off the dock it is a wonderful place to stay. I can't guarantee the weather, but everything else will be a great time to spend in Muskoka. It is close to many world class Golf courses. there in the classic boat museum in Gravenhurst. The opera house in Gravenhurst and the shopping in Bala and Port Carling.
