This 5 bedroom cedar cottage with a queen size pull out in the living room is a short 6 steps leading you down from the parking area across an interlocking brick pathway to the Lake Muskoka Cottage entrance.
The lovely Lake Muskoka views begin right away and follow you throughout this 2 level cottage with bedrooms on both levels.
Unloading is a breeze as there is a large entrance way to hold belongings as you get ready to settle in.
The kitchen is handy right beside the front door. Here you will find all the necessary appliances - fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave, even a washer and dryer tucked into large cupboards - for some that may mean out of sight, out of mind!
As you stand at the sink you will notice the huge picture window that looks out on the tall cedar trees and a large granite boulder - you are in Muskoka after all. A cedar lined wall compliments the lovely new pebble stone tile flooring.
The other direction from the front door leads you into the living room which has a cathedral ceiling and a lovely granite wood burning fireplace.
Atop the mantle sits a flat screen TV and DVD player. Comfortable couches and chairs make this room very cozy and inviting. There is a desk here as well in case you need to access the wireless internet.
Next you can't help but notice the gorgeous dining room and sitting room area that has a Lake Muskoka view in 3 different directions. The outer wall is all windows, most complete with screens to let in the lovely fresh Muskoka air. The dining table seats everyone comfortably, the sitting area has 3 couches and there is even a round table with 3 wickers chairs that beckons you for morning coffee.
The master bedroom with a queen sized bed and a 4 piece en suite bathroom is on this main level as well. A large window affords a Lake Muskoka view from the bed and small ceiling height windows above the bed allow the natural light to flow in.
A stairway from the living room leads up to the second level. These stairs are carpeted with the same carpeting that is throughout the cottage. This continuity is welcoming and very tasteful.
There are 4 bedrooms upstairs - 1 with a double bed, 2 with queen sized beds and one with a single bed. Once you are on the landing the open concept design allows you to look down on the living room and windows in the cathedral peak let in tons of natural light and a view that is straight up Lake Muskoka. The bathroom on this level is a 3 piece with a shower.
There is plenty of closet space and windows giving lovely views of either the trees or the lake from each of these bedrooms.
There are 2 pull out sofas- one on each floor for extra sleeping arrangements
Let's head outside across the interlocking brick patio and get closer to the lake we have been seeing since we arrived.
Outdoor furniture on this patio makes a great spot to sit and watch the children play on a flat rock that leads us onto the dock of a brand new double boathouse. You can jump off the dock here into the lake where the depth at the end of the dock is about 5-6'. On top is a 31x26' deck - and a hot tub!
Additional patio furniture can be enjoyed here while you admire the delightful view of Lake Muskoka.
Also along the water front is another dock where you could tie up a boat if you chose to rent from the nearby marina. Swimming is possible from this dock as well as the two swim rafts. Enjoy the sunset from the boathouse deck and start planning for tomorrow - shall we take out the paddleboat here at the cottage or head over for an historic ride on the Segwun Steamship, only a short 10 minute drive away.
This is a cottage where family memories are made.
This property remains in the family that originally bought it but upgrades and additions have been done. The family enjoys the cottage but travels a lot so they have decided to give people a chance to enjoy the Muskoka Experience.
