We chose Baysville for the amazing nature, beautifully treed roads and proximity to Lake of Bays and the historic surrounding areas. We were excited to find a rare log cottage from the 1930's. We were also enticed by how one can enjoy the quiet or seek out local attractions. Near Historic Bigwin Island, charming town of Hunstville and tiny beautiful Baysville it is the perfect location for a summer vacation. Neighbors and local townspeople are friendly and helpful and full of pride for the area. The lake is beautifully calm and quiet and great for swimming. The area is blessed to be part of the great Canadian Shield.
We fell in love with the old log and the amazing large porch, perfect for eating breakfast or having drinks before dinner with a perfect view of the water. Unique benefits are quiet and calm lake, warm for swimming. Large flat rocks gently lead into shallow water with sand packed bottom which is great for swimmers of all ages. 2000 square feet of indoor living space on two floors is extremely comfortable for families. TV lounge in addition to living room allows kids and parents to pursue separate activities if desired. Feeling like you are back in time but with all the modern comforts of home is a rare experience. Not many log cabins of this age left in Muskoka. Wonderful wildlife and bird watching.
