Living large takes on a double meaning at Timber Lodge. The size and amenity list of this wonderful Confederation Log Home on Six Mile Lake ensure that your "large" expecations will be met. This residence is a showpiece of all-wood construction with the owners having created a roomy atmosphere brilliantly combining elegance and the feel of a "lodge" enviroment. When you enter Timber Lodge, you immediately find yourself in, appropriately, the great room. The focal point of the cottage. This will be where your group gathers to share relaxation and entertainment. As you would expect, the room features a large TV with satellite/DVD and a CD stereo for all your audio/visual pursuits. The cathedral ceiling gives an air of spaciousness, making even large groups feel like they have plenty of room. For more intimate discussion, a sunken area with a fireplace overlooks the lake from the back of the room.
Grandeur continues to be the watchword as we move from the great room to the kitchen and dining area. Since the area is open concept, it quickly becomes apparent that both gourmet chefs and weekend cooks will be able to impress. The kitchen is fully-equipped with modern appliances and the elegant dining table seats up to 12 in style! Of course, you may decide on a more "down home" approach to mealtime, enjoying a BBQ meal on the deck.
There are few cottages where the deck warrants a separate paragraph on its own, but this is one of them. This L-shaped, screened-in living space surrounds the entire northwest corner of the cottage, surrounded by coniferous forest. Here you can have multiple groups enjoying the area without stepping on each other's toes. Perhaps the teenagers will enjoy a ping-pong tournament, while around the corner the adults can sit and vie for euchre or poker supremacy.
With any vacation, it is important that everyone is comfortable at night. The whole purpose of a vacation is, after all, relaxation. Timber Lodge continues to shine here. At the end of the hallway you will find sleeping accomodations that will ensure all guests awake refreshed and eager for another day of cottage fun. There are 4 bedrooms and two full bathrooms in this area, with total sleeping capacity of 12 in spacious comfort. Mom and Dad, however, will pull rank and sleep in the fifth bedroom at the other end of the cottage. Complete with whirlpool tub, ensuite bath and gas fireplace, the master bedroom is worthy of that found in a 5-star resort.
When you finally get over the awe factor and venture outside, you will see that why the owners chose to build here. The 220 feet of waterfront is classic Muskoka....a hard-sand shallow entry, with deep water diving (from a board) at the end of the dock. A canoe and deluxe model pedal-boat area available to explore the bays and shores of Six Mile Lake. A waterfront gazebo, almost a cottage in itself, is there for those who just want to enjoy some peace and quiet at water's edge.
A sandy play area for youngsters and a beach volleyball court for all ages rounds out the features. Timber Lodge offers so much, just a short 2 hours from Toronto. If your group is looking for your own private lodge, you may have found it here!+ More
