Seclusion in the heart of Muskoka can be hard to come by these days. Luckily Lake Muskoka Vacation Cottage is the perfect place for an escape to forget about the busy city and all of the stress it brings. This spacious 4 bedroom + 1 bedroom in the bunkie, 3 bathroom vacation home is tucked away on the shores of Lake Muskoka, the perfect place to bring the family-the teenagers can even stay connected with the WiFi!
In total, Lake Muskoka Vacation will sleep 14 people. The master bedroom provides the utmost privacy. A few steps above the main level, this suite has a king sized bed, a wood-burning fireplace, a private balcony and a five piece ensuite bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. The large vaulted ceilings are equipped with a ceiling fan to help foster a breeze on the warm evenings.
The other bedrooms are located on the lower walk-out level of the cottage. Two have bunk beds with a double bed on the top and bottom. The fourth bedroom is a smaller room with a double bed. They all have sliding doors leading to a lower deck. The second bathroom is located on this level as well. There is a queen-sized pullout couch in the living room for additional sleeping space.
The kitchen and dining room are open concept. The kitchen has a fridge freezer, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and a water cooler to provide you with clean drinking water. There is a small breakfast nook in the kitchen with seating for two. The dining room, directly off the kitchen, seats 6 to 8, allowing the entire family to gather for meals.
Beautiful wooden beams are the focal point of the living area. The spacious family room is equipped with a large sectional couch perfect for snuggling up and reading a book. There is also a TV with a DVD player for any rainy afternoons. On the opposite side of the room is a large wood burning fireplace. Up a few steps looking over the living area is a games table perfect for the boys to play poker or the family to play a late night board game.
This cottage has one king size bed, two bunk beds with doubles on top and bottom, a stand-alone double bed and one queen size pull-out couch.
The entire cottage is surrounded by a wraparound deck. There are plenty of places to enjoy the tranquil outdoors, either in the sun or shade. A picnic table, table and chairs, and chaise-lounges allow for plenty of seating options, and provide an opportunity to watch the sunset while enjoying a family dinner outdoors. Leading down to the water are 57 gentle steps and although this may sound like an overwhelming amount they are not steep and make the walk simple. The waterfront is not as private as up at the cottage; neighbouring docks are visible, however, they are not excessively close. A private boathouse with wrap-around dock can moor a boat of up to 24 feet. Jump into the lake from the end of the dock, which has a depth of about 10 feet. The upstairs of the boathouse has the amenities allowing for a full day stay at the water: a 2-piece bathroom as well as mini-fridge and microwave add ease to your waterfront time.
Bracebridge is in the heart of Muskoka, less than a two and a half hour drive from Toronto. Lake Muskoka is known as one of the three highly sought after â??main lakesâ??. Lake Muskoka connects to Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph providing miles of water to explore for avid boaters. It is effortless to boat to the towns of Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, Bala, or Port Carling to experience local shopping and dining. For those not bringing a boat, these towns are all a short drive away.
