About the Property

Three bedroom cottage with large deck and dock, perched on the lakeside.

Spend your days swimming, canoeing, and sipping lemonade in your Muskoka chair. Renter requires their own motor boat. Located near Footes Bay, this cottage has three bedrooms (one double bed, one queen bed, a triple bunk, and a pull-out couch in the living room). Kitchen has stove, microwave, toaster oven, fridge, dishwasher, and various small appliances. Bedrooms come complete with blankets, client provides bed linens and personal towels. The front deck has a picnic table and a patio table with two chairs.

The lake is visible from the 250 square foot deck, kitchen, and living room with a 180 degree view of the sunrise, neighbouring islands, and open water.

The same 180 degree view of the lake is also visible from the 900 square foot dock. Children and adults alike will love swimming, diving, and jumping from the dock into the deep clear waters of Lake Joseph.

Owner info

About the owner: 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!
