A wonderful lakeside cottage with far reaching views and total privacy on Muldrew Lake in the Muskoka region of Ontario.
Our cottage is a cozy 4-bedroom family cottage is decorated with cottage appeal. The dining room, living room and kitchen are together with two exits to Muskoka and our decks. The bedrooms are comfortable and well-sized (even though cottagers don't generally spend much time in them). There are four bedrooms, two of which have two single beds (singles can be moved together into one king sized bed), one bedroom has a double bed and the other has a single bed. Our lot is unusually large (3 acres!) with 600 feet of frontage (joined by a 66 foot right of way). This offers extraordinary privacy from the neighbours on both sides.
The deck overlooks Muldrew Lake and, with perfect southwest exposure, our spectacular sunsets can best be enjoyed from the dock (wine is optional). Our deck includes a brand new BBQ and a patio suite that easily seats six. There are a couple of rowboats, popular with those who like to fish. Fish in the lake include mostly small-mouthed bass, pan fish (sunfish & rock bass), catfish and the elusive pickerel.
Come and enjoy our brand new 20 x 10 dock. The exposure is south west so you get full sun all day long and the sun sets from the dock are amazing. We recommend relaxing on the dock with a chilled glass of wine while the sun goes down at the end of a magical day.
The lot is reasonably level (for Muskoka) and there is a spot for evening bon fires and a marshmallow roast, should you be so inclined. You might want to cook up a feast for the family in the well-equipped kitchen before dining al fresco on the lake side deck or take a leap off the jumping rocks, situated a short swim from our dock.
In the summer, the lake is very much enjoyed by boaters on the weekends, and on Sunday night as the rush to get back to the city begins, a peaceful hush descends on the lake and the wildlife really comes out.
