A quaint, private property with south-western exposure and breathtaking views of Lake Joe! Conveniently located between Port Sandfield and Minett, on a wide open section of the Lake Joseph River.
A true Muskoka classic-- this beautiful cottage has remained in the same family for more than 100 years, but only recently has a modern touch been added to it's original structure. The new build features various original, hand-painted rugs that were made by the owner's grandmother, as well as antique furniture that was built by her grandfather.
Not only does this property get just the right amount of privacy and shade cast from surrounding trees, it also reaps the benefits of south-western sun exposure, with beautiful sunsets being only one of it's many perks! The dock is bathed in sunlight, and the views are absolutely breathtaking from this cozy Muskoka cottage. There are a number of shaded as well as non-shaded places to enjoy the outdoors on this property, from picnic tables to hammocks and even covered dining areas. INTERIOR
The view is not lost from the interior of this cottage, with windows on every floor, the awe inspiring views almost become apart of this cottages interior design. Stand back from the windows and you'll find yourself in a warm Muskoka traditional living space where stone and hardwood combine with light welcoming colour palettes to create a truly calming motif. Notice the handpainted rugs on the floor, painted by the owner's grandmother.
Main Floor The main floor is where guests will spend the majority of their time not spent outdoors. Fortunately, the living room is designed to not only bring the best of the outdoors into perfect focus, but also to create a place where guests can relax, socialize, cook, eat, and enjoy their tranquil surroundings. It's the perfect place to read a book on the window seat surrounded by light filled windows, or pull out an old board game or puzzle on a rainy day. The dining room has seating for eight, with an addition of three bar stools against the island. The kitchen is fitted with a Corion counter and electric oven.
Also on the main floor, guests will find a conveniently located powder room, with shower, and twin bedroom with its own custom pine lavatory/dresser. The airiness of the main floor is a combination of the large number of windows which provide good cross-ventilation and the white walls with white-painted bead board wainscoting.
No Muskoka great room would be complete without a wood burning fireplace and games table, while not far away a Muskoka room provides a sort of in-between space from the sheltered indoors and coveted landscape.
Upstairs at Driftwood guests will find a master queen bedroom with an excellent view of the lake. This slight indulgence among the great outdoors comes complete with a walk-in closet and ensuite washroom. Also located upstairs is a TV area and twin bedroom overlooking the driveway and stone staircase into the woods.
Directly adjacent to the house, and overlooking the bay, is a wood deck with teak table, benches and chaises. This is a favorite dining and hangout space throughout the day with places for both shady and sunny relaxation. The small covered porch connected to this deck offers an additional table and chairs to seat 4 more, allowing for up to 16 people to eat together an al fresco meal.
Boathouse Ample sitting area, a sandy entry and a ladder for easy exit from the water are a few of the perks provided by this waterfront. The boathouse upper level contains a nice screened sitting room directly off of it's queen bedroom and 2 piece bathroom. Guests staying in the boathouse can enjoy the view and everything this unique property has to offer in complete comfort while also staying steps from the waters edge.
Cottage includes 2 hours of midweek housekeeping.
