Property description

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.

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Torrance, ON, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
