This southwest-facing, luxurious 3,000 square foot cottage is situated on Lake Joseph with over 200 feet of shoreline, panoramic view and beautiful sunsets over the lake. It features a boathouse with a huge sundeck, a dock with clear, deep water for swimming and a sandy beach for shallow entry. Split-level design accommodates generational separation and offers walkouts to the deck on the main floor or screened in porch from the walk out lower level. There are 5 bedrooms that accommodate 11 people comfortably, 4 bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, family room, games room, and laundry room. You are 1 Km away from Rocky Crest Resort and ClubLink golf course where fine dining awaits.
What you will find inside the cottage: The main floor has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. One bedroom has a king bed with en-suite, one bedroom has a queen bed, en-suite, and walkout to brand new deck with glass railings and magnificent view of the lake, another bedroom has a queen bed, and the 4th bedroom has 2 twin beds. The living room has a high ceiling, a granite fireplace, satellite TV, comfortable seating, and a walkout to the deck. The fully equipped kitchen has an island seating 4 and stainless steel appliances. The dining room has a harvest table seating 8 and a walkout to the deck. The lower level has a family room with satellite TV and walkout to the Muskoka room, a bedroom with a double/twin bunk bed with walkout, a full bathroom, and a games room with ping pong table and walkout.
What you will find outside the cottage: A gentle walk from the cottage takes you to the huge sundeck atop the boathouse affording all day sun and sunsets over the lake. There is a 16 foot canoe, a 3-person paddle boat with a bimini top, and a wide-body Legend fishing boat with a 4 stroke, 9.9 hp Honda engine. The boathouse offers a fridge and storage space, paddles and lifejackets. There are comfortable chairs and loungers on the sundeck under a large umbrella. The dock offers privacy in a picturesque Muskoka setting and the perfect spot to watch children play in the shallow water with sandy bottom. Deep water at the end of the dock accommodates older swimmers.
I spent a week here with my parents, my husband and our 13 year old son and had a great week. The cottage is clean, in a great location and well maintained. It is very close to Parry Sound and Port Carling for awesome day trips. The rooftop of the boathouse is a great spot to spend the day complete with very comfy lounge chairs and an amazing view! The "gentle walk" to the water is a steep hike and needs to be considered if mobility is an issue. The only missing amenity was a paddle board - otherwise it has it all. We enjoyed fishing, swimming, paddle boat and ping pong. I would recommend this property.
I booked this property for a family reunion/vacation and couldn't have picked a more perfect spot. It really is a stunning lake home with all the amenities of home and then some. Even the beds were comfortable.
The property, in my opinion, epitomises the northern Ontario landscape and summer lifestyle. The clear blue water, rocky terrain right to the water's edge and majestic trees envelop this lovely home. The stunning landscaped trails and stairs from the cottage to dock invite you to slow down and enjoy the rugged beauty of nature.
The home itself is perfectly laid out, clean, well equipped and maintained. The pictures, while accurate, don't do the property justice. We had 11 people and there was lots of space and privacy for everyone. The deck off the main level was a gathering spot for meals as well as some late evening stargazing. Lots of spots indoors for conversation and play. The lower level was a magnet for the children.
The waterfront is beautifully designed. Children and adults alike enjoyed the paddleboat, canoe and kayak. The floating loungers were a huge hit with the ladies and the children had hours of fun on the water trampoline. A great location for a swim in the crystal clear and calm water as well. Loungers atop of the boathouse and Muskoka chairs on the lower deck were enjoyed by all.
The owners, Mike and Maya, are a pleasure to work with. They are very responsive to phone and email contact, are extremely well organised and attentive.
The only negative was leaving. Thank you for a truly memorable holiday. Hope to return.
My family and I spent 7 fantastic days at Muskoka Sunset. Mike and Maya made the entire experience enjoyable from the booking to our sad departure after our week in Muskoka was over. The cottage had everything for two families, clean and well maintained property and all the amenities we needed. The property manager stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed and even helped us get the boat running. If your looking for a place to stay on Lake Joseph, this is the spot. Thanks Mike and Maya!
Our family had a great holiday at Muskoka Sunsets. The pictures on the web-site do not do the place justice, we were impressed with its grace, spaciousness and comfort. There was plenty of room for all 10 of us for privacy and gatherings. The kitchen was fabulously equipped, much appreciated by all the cooks. Among all the outdoor places to enjoy our favorite place to hang out on the hot sunny days was the dock along the classic Muskoka rock face by the shimmering water. The comforts and amenities of the cottage made it very easy to have a lot of fun and relax. We will certainly come back at our first opportunity! Many thanks. Kim & Christine & Co.
We stayed at this cottage for 2 weeks and found it to be one of the best cottages we have ever stayed at. The owners were fantastic to deal with and prompt to take care of any of our requests. The cottage was beautiful and very clean...pure perfection!!! Everything was of the highest quality from the cutlery to the beautifully renovated bathrooms to the super comfortable lounges by the water. We loved the location which was just around the corner from the marina because you did not waste time or money boating to the marina for fill ups. The Lakefront is beautiful with a sandy entry and no weeds. There were plenty of water toys to use and the dock was picture perfect with beautiful flower pots decorating the decks. We loved the 2 official ensuite bedrooms and we considered the lower floor bedroom an ensuite as well since they also had a bathroom that no one else needed to use. The Property Manager was fantastic. He happily gave us help with anything we needed. The walk down to the water is very manageable and well laid out with beautiful plants and flowers. The cottage had every convenience you could think of including an outside Pizza Oven!!! We had a great time for 2 weeks!!! We also had amazing weather but even if the weather had not cooperated it would have been a pleasure just to spend time in the cottage. Definitely a 5 Star Rental!!!
Our family's stay at Muskoka Sunset was just perfect! It was our second cottage experience, with our parents visiting from France, and we all enjoyed this family getaway.
The cottage was accurate to it's description and photos: spacious, fully equipped, comfortable, clean and well maintained. The owners, Maya and Mike, have created a truly homely atmosphere. They were wonderful to deal with, very attentive to every single detail and very accommodating.
Lake Joseph is a beautiful lake with stunning views. Our children had a lot of fun on the lake, enjoying particularly the fishing boat, canoe and kayak.
We highly recommend this cottage and wouldn’t hesitate to rent it again.
Thanks Maya and Mike for this wonderful stay!
