We purchased this property in the fall of 2012 as we had been cottaging in Muskoka for years and absolutely fell in love with the area. No where in the world can you experience the breath taking views while feeling you are at home away from home. We were cottaging with friends down the road when one morning during a walk through the area, we stumbled across this gem of a cottage with a spectacular boathouse! It was everything we could want in a cottage from the proximity to the water (a stone throw away), a gradual slope to the water (as we have a small child and safety is a huge concern), a large boathouse with a huge amount of deck space, perfect for relaxing with friends, and docking space for boat parking. In addition, this cottage is located on a very quiet dead end street so traffic and noise is minimal.

The perfect Muskoka experience

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this lovely cottage with my two teenage children for five days in August. I couldn't have been happier. It was brand new and absolutely spotless. The sheets were crisp and white and the towels were big and fluffy. The kitchen appliances were modern yet with that cottage feel. The lake was beautiful and open and there was a great safe swimming area for kids of all ages. We were allowed to use the decks at the boathouse which was a great perk. We also had use of the kayak and canoe. Inside there was a flat screen TV in a media area that reminded the teens that they were not "roughing it". We would stay again in a heartbeat.

Adorable cottage - clean and tidy!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Birchwood cottage. The cottage is so charming, well decorated, and very clean. We stayed with another couple and we had four small kids among us (all under 6). The children had a great time with the play house, it was a great 'babysitter!" and at all times I could always see them from the cottage while they were playing on the property. The fish were also biting off the dock for the kids! Francine and Rob were very welcoming when we arrived and showed as around which was a lovely touch along with the fresh flowers! The cottage has everything that you could possibly need. We had four adults and four children and there was more than enough space. We had cold weather and spend a considerable amount of time inside the cottage. The boathouse porch was also a nice quiet refuge.
Just a note that if you plan to come with a baby, the two rooms on the first floor are not big enough to accommodate a playpen for sleeping.

Beautifully kept muskoka family cottage

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cottage with my family in august and it was not a disappointment . The location is excellent with a beautuful private deck off the kitchen. The dock is amazing with lots of muskoka chairs to relax in.. They have a ladder off the dock to help you get in and out of the beautiful water which is amazing for swimming in.
The upper deck on boathouse had a quaint screened in porch room which is great for reading with protection from any bugs. Clean and fully stocked with everything you would need for a great week. Would definately go back.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Birchwood cottage with our 3 children and we had a fantastic vacation. The cottage and property were absolutely gorgeous with a magnificent lakeside view. The interior of the cottage was spotless and everything was brand new. It was well stocked with everything we needed including towels, beach towels, sheets, and cooking supplies. Our days were spent canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and swimming in the beautiful lake. Perfection! None of us wanted to leave. Francine was so kind and great to deal with. She was easily accessible if we had any questions along the way. We will definitely be booking for next summer....and probably every year for many years to come.
A big thanks to Francine and family!
