Our family has summered in Bala for 101 years. In the summer of 2011, we purchased this wonderful island. Your bungalow cottage is at the east end of the island. Our 1880-vintage home is at the opposite end of the island.

Robert purchased this cottage in 2011

Simply the best vacation spot in the world - all of our worldly travelers tell us so. Quiet when you want it, action when you go looking for it. Lake Muskoka is gorgeous, and you can boat for miles. Golfing, tennis, hiking are nearby, and the best swimming in the world are at your doorstep.

Island life can seem a little intimidating at first. Soon you will appreciate the peace, privacy and space. And with ony 50 yards to the landing, you really have the best of both worlds - the convenience of being minutes from town, and the 'get-away-from-it-all' feeling of a private island. The bunglaow has a huge dock facing south - you may need the sun umbrella. The sandy beach has been the place where many children have learned to swim over the past 130 years.

WONDERFUL ! SEHR SCHÖN !

  • 5 of 5
Sehr schön gelegenes, rustikales Cottage auf einer kleinen Insel (Dempster Island) ca. 100m vor Bala, vom Ufer entfernt in der Bala Bay/Lake Muskoka . Wer Ruhe und Entspannung sucht ist hier genau richtig.
Zur Insel kommt man mit einem kleinem Motorboot. Die Eigentümer leben (meist am Wochende) auf einem weiterem Cottage auf dieser Insel. Sonst lebt hier keiner weiter. Sie sind sehr nett und um das Wohlergehen ihrer Gäste sehr besorgt. Das Cottage hat 3 kleine Schlafzimmer für Platz bis zu 6 Personen mit je einem kleinem Schrank und Kommode, 1 großes Wohn- und Esszimmer mit Rundumblick zum See durch große Fenster (eigentlich kann man von überall aus Blick zum See haben), eine große Küche, Wintergarten und ein Bad mit Dusche. Großes Deck zum Sonnen (den ganzen Tag über Sonne). Es ist alles vorhanden, einschliesslich Waschmaschine und Trockner, TV, Radio, Kühlschrank, Kaffeemaschine, Herd, Geschirr, Töpfen, Bügeleisen, Fön, Bettzeug, Handtücher, Kamin, BBQ-Gasgrill, DVDs, Spiele, Sonnenstühle, ect.. Internet wird auf Anfrage kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt. Parkplatz für Auto am Landesteg. In Bala kann man einkaufen und Essen gehen, günstiger ist es im Walmart Bracebridge. Auto ist unbedingt notwendig um die Gegend und Bala, Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, Port Carling, Huntsville, und, und, und zu erkundigen. Mit dem Boot kann man den See und weitere Seen erkundigen. Es ist wirklich schön dort ! Wir (4 Personen und ein Baby) haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen - vielen Dank an Katie und Rob !

Owner's Response: Thomas and family travelled from Germany to stay with us, and they were wonderful guests. Here is a google translation of their comments above...
Very well located, rustic cottage on a small island (Dempster Island) in Bala, 100m from the shore in Bala Bay / Lake Muskoka. For those seeking peace and relaxation, this is the place. One gets to the island with a small motor boat. The owners live (mostly on weekends) in another cottage on the island, otherwise no others live on the island. They are very nice and are very concerned for the welfare of their guests. The cottage has 3 small bedrooms for space up to 6 people, each with a small wardrobe and chest of drawers, 1 large living and dining room with panoramic view to the lake through large windows (actually you can have a view of the lake from anywhere), a large kitchen, conservatory and a bathroom with shower. Large deck for sunning (all day sun). Everything is there, including washer and dryer, TV, radio, refrigerator, coffee maker, stove, dishes, pots, iron, hair dryer, bed linen, towels, fireplace, BBQ gas grill, DVDs, games, sun chairs, ect .. internet is on request free of charge. Parking for car at the jetty. In Bala you can shop and eat out, it is cheaper in Walmart in Bracebridge. Car is absolutely necessary to get to the area around Bala, Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, Port Carling, Huntsville. By boat you can visit the lake and other lakes as well. It's really nice there! We (4 adults and a baby) really enjoyed the stay - many thanks to Katie and Rob!

GETAWAY FROM THE BIG CITY

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is beautifully located in the heart of Muskoka and surprisingly convenient for an island. We loved the deep, clean water - awesome swimming. The dock is a fun place to "hangout". It has sun all day and in the evening you can have your dinner there at the water's edge. Inside the immaculate, well-appointed cottage the many windows afford gorgeous views in every direction. In the summer there are great concerts at The Kee. The owners are lovely to deal with. If you rent this cottage you will not be disappointed.

A JOYOUS HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I spend 5 day on this charming property nestled on the Muskoka Lakes. The perfect weather made the holiday exceptional. The island is secluded with easy boat (provided) access to the shore. They have all the provisions you need. We had access to a canoe and paddled our way to the town for treats. Bring your powerboat and tour the Muskoka lakes as we did. I would be delighted to stay there again.
The only disabilities I see being a bit of a problem are wheel chairs ... no ramps.

ENJOYBALE MONTH

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is as pictured--there were no surprises. In fact, the owners invited us to meet them there before we booked it, so we had the chance to see if it suited us. The kids loved being able to either wade into the water at the beach, or jump in off the dock. The property is well-maintained and the owners are agreeable and helpful. There are plenty of places to eat in Bala and Port Carling and all the amenities are readily available. We really enjoyed the Hardy Lake hiking trail, a ten-minute drive from Bala. All in all, we spent a wonderful Muskoka month surrounded by water at this charming island cottage.
