Overview

Bala Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Detached 1BR unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Lake Muskoka 4 BR cottage with all amenities and a sandy beach. Safe, level lot surrounded by trees with plenty of privacy. New granite and stainless steel kitchen, dishwasher, washer and dryer. The main house has 3 bedrooms: a queen size master bedroom with a picture window overlooking the lake, a lakefront guest room with a double bed which is perfect for 1-2 adults, and in the third bedroom, kids can sleep in 3 twins, two of which are bunkbeds.

If you have guests, or someone wants more privacy, take advantage of the separate bunkie, with 2 twin beds, its own bathroom and shower. The bunkie has 2 rooms, and can sleep up to 4 people if you use the pull-out couch.

Having a southern exposure in Muskoka is probably the main thing to look for if you like the sun. Here you will find expansive multi-level southern decks for relaxing or dining, and if you want to get away, go up to the boathouse sundeck where there is peace and quiet, a jaw-dropping view of the lake, and a patio table for dining or entertaining.

Ever lay out at night looking for shooting stars? You'll find the meteor shower here every August in a cottage country starry sky.

The water is warm, thanks to the shallow bay, which also does a good job of keeping away roaming boaters.

You can dock your boat here, or use our canoe and kayak to explore the lake. Have your morning coffee at the end of the dock, and listen to the loons.

Need to grab something? The General Store in Glen Orchard is 5 minutes away. Restaurants in Bala, Port Carling, and Bracebridge are all within easy reach. Or enjoy nearby golf, tennis and hiking.

This is the vacation you'll remember.

About The Owner

I've been coming to Muskoka since I was 2, and was lucky to buy a cottage near Bala in 1987. I go there every chance I get, and our 3 kids spent their whole summers swimming, canoeing and being outdoors. Over the years we have upgraded just about everything.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1987

Why The Owner chose Bala

Lake Muskoka is a little piece of heaven on earth. Not too hard to get to, but a world away from the city. You want to be on one of the 3 big lakes: Muskoka, Rosseau or Joseph. They all connect in the hub of Port Carling, where shops and restaurants have sprung up and become a fun destination themselves.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two young daughters and I had a wonderful week at this lovely Muskoka cottage this summer. We visited with our parents (children's grandparents) and siblings (kids' aunts and uncle) throughout the week, and everyone had a great time. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows in the fire pit at night; taking the canoe, kayak and paddle board out on the water; swimming off the dock and swimming platform; building sandcastles on the small beach; simply enjoying the beautiful view; and hanging out in the lovely cottage. All in all, a great time was had by all!

This cottage property was exactly as advertised. We were 2 adults with 5 teenage boys (age ranging from 13-17) and two dogs and we never felt on top of each other. Lots of space inside and outside to find privacy, wonderful waterfront area - shallow and warm. Boys loved the campfire at night and running around in the woods playing kick-the-can. Dogs could roam & run free. Beds were comfortable, all amenities provided. Cottage was cozy and quiet at night for sleeping. Loved the deck on top of the boathouse, great sunning and views. Watched the meteor shower 3 nights in a row in the anti-gravity chairs!! Bala and Port Carling were a quick drive away. We would definitely vacation here again.

Balance of Rustic and Modern with great swimming

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a week at this great cottage on Sunset Bay on Lake Muskoka. It was minutes from Bala, Ontario for easy runs for groceries and supplies. The south facing aspect provided plenty of sun exposure on beautiful Sunset Bay. There was a solid dock and swimming platform, a sun deck above the boathouse, and a lovely deck and eating area attached to the main cottage. The kitchen had been recently renovated with new counter and appliances including range, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher. The private beach made for easy access to take the canoe for paddle.


All in all, the property was as advertised, the renter was helpful answering questions, the property was well maintained. In short, it was just what we were looking for.
