Property Description

This newly renovated 3-bedroom cottage, with a direct view of the water, is well situated on a south exposure point on the desirable Lake of Bays, the second largest lake in the Muskoka region, just about 10 mins north of Baysville. It is great for families with children as the property is fairly level to the lake. There is a nice sand beach with shallow hard-packed sand bottom for excellent swimming in the crystal clear water. And the big and deep dock entry is good to dock your 20-26' boat. The dock is located at the south point with all day sun, from sunrise to sunset. The cottage is equipped with a big canoe, three kayaks and a paddleboat.

Inside the cottage, you will find a breathtaking interior with knotty pine walls and ceilings along with hardwood flooring throughout. The living area with large windows is very open, and centered around the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, with a big Muskoka pine dining table next to the corner windows for great views out to the lake. A large kitchen provides plenty of space to work when preparing meals for the family. All three bedrooms have wood decor and bunk beds. The mattresses and pillows are fairly new, of high quality, firm and comfortable. The view from the deck is perfect for enjoying time with your favourite beverage, chatting about the days’ events or firing up the BBQ for the night’s feast.

The big box stores, boutiques and restaurants in Huntsville or Bracebridge are just 20-mins away. There are several marinas on the lake provide boat rental and there are two boat launches nearby. Dorset and Baysvilles are known for their scenic settings as well as waterside cafes, ice cream stands, chocolatiers and great arts. Hiking and ATV trails are closed by.

Wrap up the evening by enjoying the lakeside fire pit, toasting marshmallows, with story-telling and campfire songs under the stars. This cottage is perfect for families looking for a cozy, charming, well-maintained place with lots of privacy and great fun.
