BEAUTIFUL MUSKOKA LAKE BOATHOUSE/COTTAGE PORT CARLING/BALA

Bala Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps ~8)

This boathouse is the perfect place in Cottage Country. Stairs or a ramp lead into the boathouse. The boathouse is located right on top of the water with a large deck on the second level with clear glass railings providing unobstructed views of the lake. Because it has a southern exposure, sun is available all day long. The large deck is perfect for sun bathing, taking in the view (Loons and ducks frequent the area.), dining, or just watching the stars at night. (Meteor Showers in August are jaw dropping!) Lower Docks are on three sides of the boathouse, which make swimming, fishing, or sunning an ideal experience. The biggest bonus of the boathouse is that the lake is visible from the family and dining room on three sides. Whether from the deck or inside, the sights make eating breakfast, lunch and dinner a special treat!

The master bedroom has a king sized bed with a private bathroom including a bidet. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed. A third room (Teen Room) located on the same level as the docks includes a sink, a bunk bed that sleeps two and two twins.

If you have a boat, you may dock your boat by the docks.

There are 4 boats included with the rental for you to explore the lake: a canoe, rowboat, kayak, and paddleboat.

Chairs are available for enjoying the view from the docks or deck. The swimming area around the boathouse ranges from 3 feet to 7 feet close to the boathouse and then deeper (~20 ft.) further out. The water temperature is warmer as it’s located in a smaller, shallow bay on Lake Muskoka.

The Glen Orchard General Store is only 10 minutes away for quick need items. Restaurants, shopping, and sight seeing in Bala, Bracebridge, and Port Carling are within a short distance. Tennis and golf are also nearby.

Lake Muskoka connects to Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph in the heart of Port Carling. Port Carling is not far either by motorboat or by car.

Our family settled in the area in the late 1800's and since then have been coming to Muskoka. Our parents honeymooned on Acton Island and built this boathouse in the next bay over from Acton Island in the mid 1960’s (with improvements over the years). Now, our children vacation here. It is a place that has and will always be near and dear to us with many generations of our family holding a part of Muskoka in our hearts. If you vacation here, you’ll understand why it is loved so much by us!

This boathouse is a one of a kind and must see. When you wake up, all you have to do is look out on the beautiful Muskoka Lake. The scenery is breath taking. You'll enjoy the sun all day long and enjoy any water activities that you can desire! 4 boats are included with the rental: canoe, rowboat, kayak, and paddleboat. We also have a fire pit by the lake!

FALL COLOUR TRIP

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time, the views were absolutely amazing and we wanted for nothing. Port Carling, Bracebridge & Gravenhurst were all close by. Lots to see and do. Thank you so much for making our annual fall color trip and our honeymoon spectacular! Violet & Kevin.

FANTASTIC VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three, just had an amazing 1 week vacation at this boat house on Lake Muskoka. The description of the property as depicted in the pictures was bang on. The 2 bedrooms were large and very clean and additional beds in the lower level could be utilized for larger families. Most of our meals were cooked on the BBQ and eaten on the outdoor table on the boat house deck surrounded by water.... an experience we all really enjoyed, being that close to nature..... 2 Loons came calling each evening while my wife and I had a cocktail on the deck. The boat house slip easily moored our 20 ft boat. We spent most of our days in the water swimming or in our boat. Day trips in the boat or car travelling a number of times to Port Carling, Bala and Gravenhurst for breakfasts, lunches and shopping provided us with a variety of things to do that were not available to us in past rentals. All in all we were all very impressed with this wonderful boat house.

We would recommended this place to anyone that loves being by the water!!

MUSKOKA LAKE BOATHOUSE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself, and our two children rented this boathouse, along with friends for 1 week, this past July 2012, and had a fabulous vacation. In fact, we enjoyed ourselves so much so, that we are looking at booking another trip up this fall so that we can enjoy seeing the leaves change, and get in some more fishing before winter comes! This was our first time renting a cottage through the VRBO website, and I must say, we had a wonderful experience. The owners of the boathouse, we extremely helpful in answering all of our questions, and following up right away with any concerns. When we arrived, the property was very clean, and well maintained. There was lots of things there to keep our children entertained which was a huge bonus for us! The boathouse was just lovely. There was nothing like waking up and drinking my morning coffee out on the deck, overlooking the bay. The fishing was fabulous also. We were thrilled with the many nearby activities, and attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed going on a cruise (that was pet friendly!), and watching a fantastic ski show, as well as visiting many wonderful little shops in nearby Bala and Port Carling. All in all, we will definitely recommend this boathouse to friends, and we will definitely be back ourselves. Fabulous trip!!!
