Nestled on the shores of Butterfly Lake, Cocoon Cottage is a perfect blend of the rustic and luxurious. Just minutes from the big three lakes (Muskoka, Rosseau & Joseph), guests will fall in love with this charming four-season cottage. From its wraparound deck overlooking 425 ft. of waterfront, to the peace & quiet created by the lovely treed setting and immaculately decorated interior, Cocoon Cottage is ideal for those seeking a spot in Canada’s most sought after playground. From the moment guests step into Cocoon’s tastefully decorated interior they’ll know they’ve arrived in Muskoka. In addition to the lovely pine flooring featured throughout both levels of this 1,500 sq. ft. property, the pine clad ceiling is accentuated by huge wood beams that provide a truly authentic cottage appeal. Another plus is the gorgeous lake view through extensive ceiling-to-floor windows.
Cocoon Cottage’s kitchen is a delight. Highlights of this area include state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, pine cabinets, and plenty of counter space for meal prep and serving. Next to the kitchen is the dining area, with a table overlooking Butterfly Lake. The centerpiece of the living room is the huge stone fireplace with its solid pine mantel.
This cottage has 3 bedrooms. The main floor master bedroom has a queen bed and amazing views of the lake. Also on this floor, a 3 piece bathroom boasts a lovely old-fashioned bathtub, perfect for a quiet end-of-day soak. Upstairs, there are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed while the other has 2 bunk beds (total of 4 singles). Another 3-piece bathroom is on the upper level.
The wraparound deck overlooking the lake has a BBQ and a number of classic Muskoka chairs. More Muskoka chairs circle the lakeside fire pit. Strong swimmers will love cannon-balling off the cottage dock, or those preferring to wade in slowly can find a number of spots to enter Butterfly Lake along its waterfront. Two full-size paddle-boards are available to explore the lake.
Lots of fun activities can be found in neighbouring Port Carling and Bala, including great shopping, dining, entertainment (the famous Kee to Bala) and attractions from historic steamships to museums. The area also boasts a number of first rate golf clubs and resorts. Also handy is the always bustling Glen Orchard General Store, just a five minute walk away.+ More
