Located on water's edge of Muskoka's cleanest lake, this stunning cottage offers beautiful southeast to southwest panoramic views of Skeleton Lake. Perfect for families or those who want more space, this recently built cottage provides comfortable accommodation and plenty of access to your favourite outdoor summer activities.
The property includes ~300’ of shoreline and is located on the corner of a very private bay. Entry to the water is hard packed sand that extends hundreds of feet into the lake, making this a fabulous spot for families with toddlers, non-swimmers, or anyone who want to play in the water. The southwest shoreline facing the bay includes over 1,000 sqft of decking, complete with a hot tub, boathouse (with fridge), a new Weber Genesis BBQ, two modern outdoor dining table sets, and most importantly dock space and beach chairs for unrivaled sun exposure until sunset.
The southeast shoreline includes a deep-water dock with a boat lift if you choose to rent a motorboat from a Skeleton Lake marina. A few steps up from the shoreline is a natural in-ground fire pit, providing a beautiful nighttime hangout with views of the lake and starry sky.
This two-storey Cape Cod style cottage provides very spacious and comfortable accommodations for large families or groups. The main level has a full-size kitchen; living room and dining room with panoramic views of the lake; two bedrooms; 3-piece washroom and laundry room. Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms with beautiful views of the lake through the dormers, and a second washroom. The cottage comfortably sleeps up to 12 people in five bedrooms, each with beautiful lake views.
Skeleton Lake is often referred to as Muskoka's best-kept secret. Skeleton Lake is the largest open body of water in the Muskokas said to have been originally formed by a meteorite impact. This has gifted Skeleton Lake with its uniquely crystal clear waters, sandy beach coves, and wide-spanning views across the lake. The lake is spring-fed, isolated from other waterways, and guarded by the surrounding granite rocks and cliffs. As a result the lake survives in pristine condition, incredibly low pH levels, and in a class of its own in terms of cleanliness and water clarity.
