Port Carling Cottage Rental Photos and Description

This prime waterfront cottage retreat in Muskoka was professionally designed and decorated by Muskoka Living Interiors. The cottage has stunning lake and forest views, just minutes from Port Carling. Located at the Hub of the Lakes, accessing Muskoka, Rosseau and Joseph. Wake up every morning to glorious sunrises and tranquil water beckoning you to use the two kayaks or try the new stand-up paddleboard. Enjoy coffee in one of the wicker rockers on the expansive front veranda or the red Muskoka chairs on the new large L-shaped dock. Bask dockside in the morning and afternoon sun or swing on the hammock under a canopy of maple and birch trees. Beautifully renovated and fully landscaped, this cottage will be your happy place.

This gorgeous cottage features wide-plank pine flooring, with furnishings and accents that evoke comfortable, casual sophistication. The space has been featured on a Global home design program.

With five bedrooms, living room, screened in Muskoka room, and expansive veranda, this is a beautiful lakefront escape. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and dining with all stainless steel appliances and dishwasher. Enjoy the evening breeze in the screened in room with comfortable wicker seating.

The finished basement has two guest bedrooms and a laundry room with washing machine and dryer. Double doors open to a 200sq. ft flagstone patio sitting area with Muskoka chairs and pathway to the lake.

A Family Favorite

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway for the family. Beautifully decorated and everything you need for a fun and relaxing time away. A gorgeous lake view especially from the cozy screened in nook that was enjoyed day and night for peaceful reading times. The large dock gives lots of space for time by the water for fishing, swimming or just floating the day away. Close to parks, hiking trails, beaches and amenities if you can tear yourself away from the basketball, badminton and other outdoor activities.

A very good choice.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, I and friends were so happy to have found this little piece of heaven just 2 hours from home. We wanted an easy peaceful setting with safe swimming in not too busy a bay and we found what we were looking for. Cottage was well appointed, parking was ample for 5 couples, Port Carling and Bala were both in easy distance if we wanted restaurant dining. Gravenhurst was an easy run if we wanted lake cruising. We tried both. The ladies loved the kitchen and together with the bbq we were able to dine in style. Early morning and evening walks were scenic and safe, golf is close at hand as are stores for those items forgotten when packing or for the items you require fresh.

All in all a great experience that we hope we can do again.

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at this wonderful cottage twice in August 2014, once with our grandchildren (ages 1 - 7), then returned again with four couples (mid 40s - 60s). We all loved it and immediately felt right at home - the decor is beautiful.

The cottage offered something for everyone of all ages: kayaks, relaxing in the hammock, jumping off the dock, basketball, TV, game of chess, or for those that couldn't leave work completely behind there was wi-fi. Port Carling was also close by (literally just a few minutes drive away) for anything else we wanted (there was an LCBO, great grocery store, huge playground for the kids with a lovely sand beach, ice cream shop, a yummy crepe restaurant).

The best part for me was peaceful morning kayaking (life jackets were provided) where we saw turtles, ducks, a heron and water lilies.

Other favourites were sitting with a cup of coffee on the front veranda, enjoying an evening drink after dark in the screened in room just off the living area, soaking up the warmth of the sun on the dockafter a refreshing swim in the lake (there were plenty of red Muskoka chairs for everyone), and going for a little wander through the quaint shops in Port Carling or Bala.

My secret peaceful spot not even in the cottage description was reading a book in the screened in room on the upper level, surrounded by trees - it felt like being in a treehouse!

This cottage has become our favourite spot and we will be returning again with our family this summer. We loved the natural beauty, comfort and being close to everything.
