Luxury Villa in Exclusive Muskokan Resort on Lake Joseph

This magnificent, year-round holiday villa is part of the exclusive Muskokan Resort Club located On Lake Joseph, widely reputed to be the most beautiful lake in the Muskokas.

In addition to the lovely accommodations, the Resort offers second-to-none summer activities and amenities. These include swimming (in the lake or in the grotto pool), fishing, boating, canoing, kayaking, paddleboating, tennis, basketball, volleyball and shuffleboard, and a Henderson designed playground for the little ones. Golf, motorboat and Sea-doo rentals are available nearby.

In the winter, the Resort provides skating on the frozen lake, snowshoeing, and sledding. cross-country skiing and snowmobile rentals and trails are nearby.

A unique feature of the Muskokan Resort Club is its elegant Clubhouse, which features a well-equipped games room, a library, a billiards room and a private media room (movie theatre) at your disposal.

The lakeside boathouse offers a gorgeous, well-equipped lake-view fitness centre, a large outdoor hot tub, a dry-heat sauna, and various spa services by appointment. And in the evening, a fire pit surrounded by comfortable (Muskokan) chairs will roast your marshmallows, keep you warm, and help you recall all your favorite campfire songs of yesteryear.

A new feature of the Resort's program is Yoga-on-the-lake, sure to relax and motivate you.

Beyond the Resort itself, there are endless activities and places ofinterest to explore. Nearby trails offer exciting hiking, nature walk (where you can discover some of Muskoka's hidden waterfalls) and horseback riding adventures. The Trans-Canada Trail and Algonquin Park are within easy driving distance.

If you're in the mood for some culture, Muskoka's many museums are a vibrant testimony to this area's rich and varied history. And if you still have time and are so inclined, nearby towns of Port Carling, Bracebridge and Gravenhurst offer fine dining opportunities and unique shopping experiences.

The Villa itself, set amid picturesque landscaping, and within a stone's throw of the lake is a spacious, elegantly appointed home-away-from-home, containing every comfort and luxury to make your stay absolutely perfect. the Great Room is graced With a 15 ' cathedral ceiling and a floor-to-ceiling natural stone working fireplace that vies for attention with the huge picture windows that overlook the lake. Elegant, but comfortable sofas and chairs surround the fireplace and also provide seating for viewing a large HD TV and DVD player. When needed, the sofa can be opened into a comfortable queen size bed. There is a charming separate den on the main floor that contains another pull-out couch, an en-suite bathroom and another TV. A spacious laundry/storage room makes it easy and convenient to keep things in order. And an additional beautiful bathroom services the public areas of the main floor.

In the dining area, the large heavy wooden dining table lends a country flavour to the thoroughly modern hi-tech kitchen which features stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops. Ample dishes, glassware and cooking utensils are all included.

A double-glass door leads you from the dining room to the Muskokan room, with more comfortable seating to facilitate entertaining and warm and wonderful conversation. From this room, as well as directly from the dining room, you can exit onto the erap-around porch that houses the man-size barbeque that awaits your sizzling steaks.

Upstairs, the Master Bedroom features a King Size bed, another working fireplace, and another large HD TV. Double doors lead to your oversize deck where you can relax on the comfortable outdoor furniture while watching the sun set Into the lake.

The Master ensuite bathroom is practically large enough for a party. It features a double sink vanity with plenty of storage, a separate toilet room, a shower large enough to dance in and a huge soaker tub.

The second upstairs bedroom can easily sleep four people with its two Queen size beds. It also features its own private ensuite bathroom and another TV. Luxury linens, towels and (tons of) pillows are included.

Less than two hours from Toronto, but worlds away, the Muskokan Resort provides the setting for the Holiday of Your Dreams!

My cousins and I stayed at this villa last Thanksgiving weekend and I can't express how amazing it was. The villa was beautiful and so spotless. It was very clean and everything was just as the owner said it would be. We would not hesitate to go back again and are waiting for our next opportunity. Would love to go in the summer so that we can thoroughly enjoy the water activities and being outdoor. I would recommend this villa to anyone who's interested without any hesitation!

Fabulous Property - The Muskokan Resort Club - Sandfield 1 Villa

  • 5 of 5

I and a group of girlfriends make an annual pilgrimage/getaway to Muskoka and have been doing so for over 25 years. This property was by far one of the best we have stayed in. The overall experience was rated "first class" by all the group, a consensus we have never had before. The Villa itself was well equipped, very clean, spacious and extremely comfortable (TVs everywhere and bathrooms galore). The view of the lake from the deck was awesome. The resort amenities, especially the hot tub, were excellent. Resort staff (a Shout Out to Stacey and Perry) were very friendly and helpful from our arrival to our departure. An added, unexpected bonus was a Saturday boat cruise around the lake.

All in all, we expect to return in the future.
