Hideaway Cottage is a lovely and private all-season cottage near Bala, Ontario in the heart of Muskoka. This is a family-friendly house that we use ourselves when it is not rented.
Wood floors, a sun room, barbeque, a dock on a quiet lake and 70 acres of privacy make this the ideal escape in summer or fall. Cook on the barbeque, play in the large backyard, lounge in the hammock, roast marshmallows at the fire pit, go for a swim in the lake, or just plain old hang out.
Full kitchen, 4 bedrooms and linens included to make your life easier. The living-dining area is an L shape with a cathedral ceiling. The dining area seats 8 to 12; the living room is bright with windows overloooking the woods and the lake, and there is a tile woodstove.
The main level master bedroom has patio doors opening to the deck looking out through trees to the lake. Two bedrooms which accommodate a total of 7 people and a play area are upstairs, perfect for the kids. Downstairs, there is another bright bedroom (with a queen-sized bed) that affords an intimate view of the woods, and an additional 3-piece bathroom.
In winter, enjoy the snow with long walks in the woods, skating and cross-country skiing, and snowmobile access. Downhill skiing at Mount St. Louis Moonstone is less than 45 minutes away.

The cottage is on a small and quite private lake, with about 1,000 feet of frontage on each side of the lake. Swimming is primarily from the dock, with plenty-deep water that is usually quite warm in the summer. There is a canoe for exploring and you'll find lots of lifejackets on site for adults and kids.
There is a treed slope down to the water; a mix of Canadian Shield and grass. The water is about 2ft deep at the shoreline and then gradually deepens more. The lakebed is firm to soft sand/gravel/rock bottom.
