Excellent swimming with both shallow and deep water, granite steps into the lake and a small sandy beach area. The cottage also has west exposure which provides for a sunny shoreline and decks from 10:00 am to sunset. A typical day-long breeze from the open waters to the west make this location virtually bug-free during daylight hours.
The cottage features an open concept design with a great room, floor to ceiling windows on the lake side, water-views on three sides from the sunroom, custom kitchen with granite countertops, hardwood and slate flooring, 20 foot ceilings, ceiling fans in each room, 2 fireplaces (one wood burning, the other propane), 2 bathrooms (one with whirlpool), 3 queen beds + two bunk beds, 52 inch plasma TV with DVD, satellite TV, high speed internet, 2 large decks and multiple sitting areas by the water.
The waterway is quiet both on weekends and during the week as the only traffic is from one of your few island neighbors. This cottage provides the true 'on the water' Muskoka experience. Should you wish more privacy or have a desire to accommodate two families or a group of 8 to 10 in real comfort, you may rent the neighboring two bedroom cottage (www.vrbo.com/350642) on the lot adjacent to this property.

We choose to purchase this water access cottage for three reasons, the west exposure, the all-day sunshine (from 10 am to sunset), the gently westerly breeze and the quietness of a water access property. There are no cars on this mile wide by two mile long island and while there is some boat traffic on the lake it is generally in the distance allowing for a quiet relaxing week in the sun. All of the city and recreational amenities are a short boat ride away (100% accessible by water if you don't want to use your car) and include grocery shopping, restaurants and recreational activities such as golf.
Benefits of this cottage include privacy (cottage is located on a point) with only one other cottage in close proximity. Three outdoor decks, stunning open water views and a private dock. The cottage is newly constructed in 2009 and includes all the comforts and conveniences of your city home.
