Located on lovely Grandview Lake between the popular Muskoka villages of Baysville and Dorset, Grande Vista is the perfect location for families who enjoy the kind of relaxed and peaceful vacation experience only found on the region’s smaller lakes. Cute-as-a-button and recently renovated Grande Vista boasts four bedrooms and a capacity to sleep nine guests.
Set back from the easy-to-access waterfront (the cottage is connected to the water by a pleasant stone pathway), this pleasantly decorated traditional cottage offers ample room to entertain and have fun. Its’ well-appointed kitchen with its brightly stained pine cabinetry and durable wood-patterned vinyl flooring is the perfect place to prepare those memorable cottage meals. Additional table seating up to eight guests is located in the adjoining Muskoka Room.
Just steps away from the kitchen, the living room is a cozy place to relax after meals and enjoy a little satellite TV or a movie from the extensive DVD library (an MP3 player is also available for those wanting a little music). The living room offers comfortable seating for up to five guests.
Grande Vista’s four bedrooms offers two queens, two doubles and one single, sleeping nine guests (located on the main floor). The large master bedroom offers a queen bed, along with a TV and VCR / DVD player; while the second features a single bed plus a large games cupboard. Upstairs accommodations include a large bedroom with a queen and a double, as well as a bedroom with a double bed and a double fold-out futon. Two bathrooms are also available. The first between the main floor bedrooms is a three-piece with a tub / shower. The second, two-piece, is located between the two bedrooms on the upper level.
Another nice living area is the large Muskoka room located on the lake-side of the cottage. Offering splendid views over Grandview Lake, it includes a pine dining table that easily seats eight, along with a comfortable lounge area for a further three guests.
