Lake Rosseau shores are directly in front of the Birch cottage but a safe distance for children safety. The land gently slopes for easy access. The beach furniture docks (2019), as well as the Gazebo and Tennis Court are yours to enjoy. The beach is wide and VERY safe with a gentle slope for 20-30 meters into the lake. You are on the western side resulting in diminished winds on such days. The bay is calm when the lake could be rough. The Birch is surrounded by colour from the natural surroundings and the perennial gardens in the spring, summer and fall. The fall takes the prize however with a full-colour cavalcade. In winter, the quiet days, star-filled skies and white blanket of snow and ice capture our attention. The natural hues of rocks, sky, forests and waters that surround you become a painting right before your eyes and the sounds of nature surround you.

Will purchased this cottage in 2000
Why Will chose Minett
The Muskoka Region was identified as the number one place to vacation by National Geographic Magazine in 2011. Some things never change. I have vacationed up here since 1957 with my family. The gradual slope to Lake Rosseau is child and senior friendly. Lake Rosseau is connected to Lake Joseph and Lake Muskoka, both of which make for a variety of options on the water and by land. The lakes allow for small boating and skiing and freeze over in winter to allow winter activities. The region offers much - from the Arts to festivals; from historical sites to bike trails; from going to fine dining and shows.
