About Andrea

We live and work in Toronto and cottage all summer with our children each year in Muskoka. Both of us grew up spending entire summers at a cottage lake (one of our families in Muskoka for 140 years; one in the Kawarthas for two generations) and have continued to spend each and every summer of our lives in cottage country. Both of us know and value the magic of country existence far from the hustle of city life, a peaceful getaway in earshot of the lapping waves on the dock. We take our visitors' satisfaction with their booking very seriously and strive to develop repeat clientele that come to get to know the place and return because they love it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I swam all day and my family boated and water-skiied all week. The water is clean and clear. The lake is a perfect temperature to refresh a person on a hot summer's day. The view of the island opposite is spectacular and the swim there and back a perfect challenge. Thank you. Our family got some much-needed together time and we return to our busy lives recharged!

Lake Joseph island cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week away at the island. The swimming especially, Lake Joseph is clear, clean and beautiful. John and Andrea were very helpful, getting onto the island it was our first time on an island and easier than I expected. The cottage had everything we needed or wanted. The view is spectacular.

Lake Joseph

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous view or privacy or modern cottage? No need to choose this property has it all. South facing gives sun all day.

Deep water dock accommodates all types of water craft. Naturally shaded upper deck merges from the living quarters,

game room, dining room and kitchen. The bedrooms are double bedded and have fun bunks for the kids.

Should it rain or turn chilly there is a central wood burring stove which mirrors the fire pit outside.

For the landsman and birders there are trails along the lake shore and a natural rock face at the back for rock climbing.

And always there is the million dollar view.

We savored them all. Eager to be back for the fall colours They will be unbelievable with the blue lake.

P.S. we saw a piliated wood pecker really up close and personal. They are big.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your visit to "Blue" and hope you return again soon. You are right about fall colours...one of our favourite times. Along with the hot summers that make you want to swim are the lazy cool fall days with beautiful fall colours and a warm crackling fire indoors. We offer seniors discounts in the fall months.

Relaxing Muskoka getaway

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't think of a better way to "unwind" then at this beautiful lake cottage. Before we even arrived, it was immediately apparent that Andrea and John wanted to ensure we had an incredible stay. They were very attentive and easy to reach. The cabin was clean, well appointed with everything we needed and had just undergone some nice upgrades. We can't wait to go back. Thank you so much!
