About the property

This newly renovated, 1,200 sq. ft., 3 bedroom family cottage has 310 ft. water frontage with crown land on one side (no cottages on crown land). It is located in Torrance, just minutes from Bala and a few more minutes from Gravenhurst and only 1 3/4 hrs from Toronto. The property is very clean, private and quiet with great views of the lake from all windows.

A 12 ft. aluminum boat with 7.5 merc is included for your use along with 4 adult life jackets. You must provide your own life jackets if you have children. Also a paddle boat/canoe and kayaks. The cottage is a 5 min. boat ride from the marina. There is no Water Taxi service. Must have an Ontario Boating License. Parking available for your vehicle at the Marina on the government dock side. A large selection of boats can be rented and delivered from a few marinas located in Bala. Let me know if you are interested.

The cottage is very close to the water and offers a lovely panoramic view with a fire pit at the waters edge. Please adhere to the fire sign at the marina as to whether you can have a fire or not. The water is warm in the summer and great for swimming. Enter the lake at the end of the dock with in and out ladder access.

Enjoy the summer sun all day long either on the dock or one of the tiered decks. A Weber BBQ is available - just replace the propane that you use. There is a large outdoor patio set for outdoor eating and many other seating areas to choose from.

About Kelly Blizzard

My husband and I have 5 kids between us and as everyone is spread across Ontario at school and work - this is a special place where all the kids like to come and be together for a few weekends through the summer.

Kelly Blizzard purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Kelly Blizzard chose Ontario

Both our family's grew up on this lake. A hidden little gem in the midst of Muskoka amongst all the big lakes. It is the perfect canoe and kayak lake. and we have both.

What makes this cottage unique

The lake is about 8 miles long and for the most part is fairly quiet. It is a family lake and you will enjoy the solitude of canoeing or kayaking and exploring the lake. There are a few road access cottages - about 25% - with the remainder being boat access only. There are only about 160 cottages on the lake. Very private.

Our wonderful cottage experience

  • 5 of 5

My family & I rented this beautiful cottage along with my sister & my niece for a week in July and had an absolutely amazing time!!! The lake is beautiful & the area is quiet, but not so quiet that you feel secluded. The boat traffic around the cottage is minimal so the kids were able to swim/paddle boat/canoe in the lake without us having to worry. Any boaters that did go by always had a friendly wave. The marina is only a quick 7min boat ride away and Bala is a 10 min car ride, Gravenhurst 15 min. Plenty of good restaurants & fun shops in both towns.

The cottage is fantastic, the open concept of the living room/dining room/kitchen makes it seem so spacious and the owner obviously has a wonderful eye for decorating because everything was perfect. Little touches like matching dishes/stemware, beautiful soaps in the bathroom, nice, fluffy towels and fans in the bedrooms made it so much more enjoyable.

The beds are comfortable & the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you would need. I particularly loved all of the fun, colourful wine glasses!!!

The huge picture windows in the living room/dining room make it a perfect spot to sit & watch the world go by & enjoy the beautiful Muskoka sunsets. And there's plenty of room outside too, lots of loungers to enjoy the sun and plenty of deck space (3 different levels) with lots of chairs to sit & enjoy your drinks!! 

We had a wonderful time & would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone wanting to have a nice, quiet time with family or friends.

We would love to return next year.
