Overview

Bala Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom lakefront cottage with private dock and bunkie and bunkie

This attractive, 1200 sq. foot modern cottage is located on Lake Muskoka, just minutes to Bala where shopping, a scenic waterfall and weekly farmers' market await. There are two bedrooms in the main cottage and a separate sleeping cabin. The property is treed for privacy and has some grass for children to play. The driveway is shared with the neighbour next door but the rental cottage has its own parking area.

The cottage sits close to the water and offers a lovely northwest lake view. Attractive flagstone paths take you to the water and two docks provide lots of room to sit and enjoy the sunsets, as well as deeper water for swimming. For those with young children there is some ripple sand bottom with shallow entry.

Cottage is equipped with satellite tv and wireless internet.

We also own the cottage next door. If you're looking for more space or a different set-up, please visit our listing: http://www.vrbo.com/556324

The cottage is located just a ten-minute drive from all amenities: food store, liquor store, beer store and bank.

Cottage Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This is as good as cottage vacation gets! Perfect! Huge, perfect amazing lake, with a canoe and a kayak and a stand-up paddle thing like Gwyneth Paltrow is always using in paparazzi photos, and a floaty thing that my kids were obsessed with. Beautiful dock that gets optimal sun. And the cottage is perfect. IT HAS A DISHWASHER. There's a little island you can boat to and roast marshmallows! We paddled back by the light of the moon--I cried. And a bunkie, which the kids (ages 6 and 8) just loved. King-size bed! Huge and lovely. So close and convenient to drive into town for more alcohol oops I mean groceries. Perfect in every way--we had an amazing stay!

Fantastic Family Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a fantastic week at this wonderful cottage over the summer. The cottage was impeccably clean and well maintained. It contained all the modern conveniences and the kitchen was well stocked with every utensil you would need to make a wonderful meal. The owner has provided many water toys, ie Kayak, paddleboard, canoe for the convenience of the renter. This kept two pre-teens very busy. The only item not working perfectly was the Wi-Fi - but when you are up north this is actually a blessing in disguise. Thanks for the wonderful week.

Great cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage as a family of four, including a teenager and 10 year old.

We had a great time, both very relaxing but also filled with lots of water activities including making use of the canoes and paddle board that were available.

The cottage is very comfortable, very well appointed with a well equipped kitchen and living space. Steven the owner is a very helpful, generous host and is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the Muskoka area.

I would be very happy to recommend the cottage to friends and family, and wish to return ourselves in the not too distant future.

Outstanding Rental...Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

From the owner who was exceptionally easy to work with to the well-located cottage, this was a excellent rental experience for our family of four. The cottage itself is in excellent condition and more spacious than we envisioned; has two bedrooms plus a well appointed bunkie; two bathrooms; a well equipped kitchen; and spacious living, dining and sitting room areas. The best part of the cottage for us was the large dock and all the included water toys; wireless internet and Netflix was also good on our rainy day. I recommend this place highly for 4-6 people who want to enjoy all Muskoka has to offer in a comfortable, waterfront cottage.

Muskoka comfort

  • 4 of 5

We picked the perfect August week to enjoy the beautiful lake view from this rental. The water was warm and great swimming off the new dock. Our grand kids enjoyed a few days with us and learned how to cast a fishing line. Bala is very close and gravenhurst only about a 20 minute drive as well

Beds in the main cottage are very comfortable and dining overlooking the water was perfect. The only small disappointment was the bunkie which is really only suitable for teenagers as it is tiny with no toilet. However overall this is a great place to spend a summer vacation.

Muskoka memories

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our two young daughters really enjoyed our one-week stay at this beautiful cottage. The kitchen has everything you need for a young family , the layout was very "child safe" and the beds were all really comfortable. The girls loved playing outside in the yard , we went for nature walks on the nearby trails and we hung out on the large dock a lot to swim, kayak and just relax. Although we spent most of our time outside, we definitely made use of the excellent entertainment system at night ( after the kids went down )) watching blu-ray movies and Netflix. All the comforts of home but in a stunning setting! We went to Bala a couple of times for groceries - it's really close - and every Tuesday night there's a free waterski show there and we all loved checking this out. I definitely recommend this cottage and am looking forward to a repeat visit this coming summer.

In fact , we have already booked two weeks for next coming season and If available , we now plan on coming back every summer and begin to create our very own Muskoka summer memories for our young family at this cottage
