Awesome, Relaxing Week!
We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage! It is exactly as depicted in the ad. It's the perfect size for around 4 people who don't mind dealing with some stairs. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped (it even has a dishwasher). The bathroom is totally modern. And, the living area was excellent, with a comfortable sectional and satellite T.V. as well as a kitchen table overlooking the water. In order to access the dock, you need to go down a fairly lengthy set of stairs, so not the greatest if you have mobility challenges. Once on the dock, there are two new Muskoka chairs, an umbrella for shade, and a fantastic view of Lake Muskoka. It's a great spot for swimming, too. It's very easy to access the water from the dock and the dock is on a fairly sandy bottom. You have several meters before the water becomes deep. Steven was a great host. He was there to meet us when we arrived and before we left. And, as with other visitors, gave us a ride around the lake in his boat. He also ensured the cottage was stocked with all basic kitchen supplies. It's about a 5 minute drive to Bala and about 25 minutes to either Port Carling in one direction or Gravenhurst in the other, so lots of choice for shopping and restaurants. The Wi-Fi is temperamental, but that was not an issue for us! Overall, if you are looking for a smaller, but very comfortable cottage that's not too far from Toronto or other towns once you are there, this is it!
