Bardsville Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This is a large fully furnished and equipped, brand new and totally custom built 'cottage' on a very large lake (one section is 'three miles' long, but there are many other larger sections of the lake). To keep our place in good shape, we prefer vacationing families and cannot rent to large groups for 'party weekends'. Beautiful Muskoka--large pines, majestic rock, great fishing, and a serene getaway. The water at the shoreline is shallow, sandy and non-weedy and clean. Great fishing. Brand new 8' x 20' dock. Southern exposure with gorgeous lakefront. Marinas on lake for renting other watercraft, or buying gas. Landscaped with log stairs down to lake (illuminated at night). 8 person hot tub.

Pine ceilings throughout and oak floors on upper two floors with two huge stone fireplaces (great room and master). Basement has casual painted concrete floors with area rugs throughout). Basement fully trimmed and well lit with another large stone fireplace, plus rec room with ping pong table, change room/which could be used as overflow bedroom, furnished den. 750 square foot deck off each floor (1500 square feet of decking total). Custom materials used throughout (pine trim, cedar siding, 5' oak floors, solid oak stairs, two bathrooms (with large slate tiles, heated floors and custom glass enclosure ensuite), three huge stone fire places (including master bedroom), black granite counter tops and hearths. Four bedrooms (+ four overflow sleeping areas in loft, great room, basement changeroom, and lower den). Laundry on main floor.

Why Ann Wakelin chose Bardsville
Great amenities nearby. We love the rugged beauty of Muskoka-tall, crooked pines, beautiful rock and warm water.
What makes this cottage unique
Custom interior signficantly better than most spec cottages. Great location--close to amenities and yet quiet road access. Easy walk in from the parking area. Beautiful lake for fishing, water sports and sun all day with a southern exposure.
