Property Description

The perfect family getaway! This five bedroom (3 bedroom on main and 2 in basement), two-bath oasis is nestled on two, cleared acres. Your getaway is enveloped in privacy at the end of a well-maintained road, with plenty of parking.

The newly renovated, four season home features a modern, open concept layout with new flooring throughout, new stainless steel appliances and fixtures (including above the range microwave and dishwasher) - and gleaming granite countertops. All the modern amenities are available, while preserving that wonderful cottage feel. Your entire “wish list” of items to make for a memorable family vacation are included.

The warm and comfortable interior has a spacious kitchen (peninsula island seats three). The kitchen easily flows into an open dining/living area, anchored by an eight-person antique dining table for lively evening feasting. The entire space offers beautiful lake views, framed by acres of undisturbed evergreen forest.

The master bedroom, with its own entry and deck access, is well appointed with a new queen bed and ensuite bath. The master is also surrounded by windows, bathing it in sunlight. Bedroom two sleeps up to four people (a double memory foam bed plus a set of bunkbeds). Bedroom three sleeps four people and is the perfect solution for kids, with two sets of matching bunk beds. Fourth bedroom has one queen bed and fifth bedroom has one double bed.

The living/dining area opens onto a 40 foot long deck, with a stainless steel propane barbecue and small charcoal barbecue - perfect for evening entertaining or daytime lounging. The oversized deck overlooks a huge yard, with easy, gentle sloping access to 200 feet of water frontage. The quiet bay welcomes you with a shallow, sandy entry, no more than waist deep for several paces. Plus, minimal motorized traffic makes this a perfect spot for children of all ages.

The water allows you to enjoy serene early morning paddles, leisurely afternoon swims, evening fishing and even the occasional visit from a family of ducks. Appointed with a dock to easily launch and moor the kayaks and canoe, get ready for a fabulous time sunning and relaxing during the day, or a boisterous afternoon on the ‘krazy karpet’ of summer, a massive floating watermat that can hold an entire family!

Evening pursuits easily rival the days’. You will be mesmerized by unparalleled star gazing that can only come with such a private enclave. Enjoy a lakeside fire, tailor made for roasting marshmallows, or overdosing on s’mores!

And don’t forget the day trips! Awesome hiking, portaging and camping (among other activities) are only minutes away at the world-renowned Algonquin Park. Many beautiful lakes dot the landscape as well. Perhaps a night or day ‘out’ beckons. The bustling town of Huntsville, only 30 minutes away, has great shopping and dining and (ummm….golf). Huntsville is a true Muskoka experience.
