Privacy awaits you as you enter this 1+ acre property with 200 feet of frontage and a 2700 square foot cottage on the Eastern shoreline of Lake Rosseau in Portage Bay. The cottage's exposure is NW, and it enjoys all day sun on the waterfront along with breathtaking Lake Rosseau sunsets.
There's plenty to do for all ages. There are 2 kayaks, water skis, tubes, 2 wake boards, a sailboat, a wooden raft and a large floating water mat (Aqua Lily) - all the toys to ensure many fun-filled days relaxing on the water. Enjoy the large boathouse roof top deck with lounge chairs, umbrella, gates to contain dogs/grandchildren, and a great view of the Bay. After the sun has disappeared, the fire pit will be waiting along with a cabinet filled with all your favourite cottage games. Nicely landscaped with excellent path lighting leading to and from the dock.
Water level is 10' deep at the end of the dock (deep enough to jump from the boathouse deck) and there's fishing in the Bay.
Portage Bay is a quiet bay just off the eastern thoroughfare of Lake Rosseau - a great spot for water skiing, tubing and sailing.
