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 as well as one full bathroom and one half bath. 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 at vrbo #556324.
The cottage is located just a ten-minute drive from all amenities: food store, liquor store, beer store and bank.
We quickly came to feel at home in this comfortable, traditional cottage. It is clean and updated while retaining a Muskoka cottage feel with its wood panelling, and decor. We know the area b/c our friends have a cottage in the bay and that's why we rented.. I almost don't want to give a good rating so we can keep it to ourselves :P. The actual part of Muskoka is great as it is close to Bala where you can wake up and go to Don's Bakery or go to the Kee to Bala for concerts (we must missed Kim Mitchell). The owner is around to help as his cottage is next door and he is super friendly. If you want a vacation where you can relax, be in the water, BBQ and experience a Canadiana summer then this is it!
Pros: Close to the water, West exposure for incredible sunsets, nice dock for swimming and relaxing (docked our jetski), good for swimming, TV, Laundry
Cons: The BBQ has 2 settings - Off or On Fire, which makes for nice Jerk chicken wings; there is another dock that is close by if you don't like having other people nearby but wasn't a problem for us
This cottage did NOT disappoint. I don't even know where to begin! The water toys on the dock provided hours of fun for our 10 and 12 year old. My husbands fishing boat was parked directly in front of the cottage which is a HUGE bonus - I woke up a few mornings and he had already left for fishing without having to drive the truck and boat somewhere to launch - perfect! It's quiet and beautiful. Washer, dryer, dishwasher - when you are travelling with kids definitely a must. The cottage itself is very clean and well maintained - it literally has everything you need. Satellite TV because sometimes you just need to watch Chopped before bed. For most of the weekdays we had the lake to ourselves to take the kids tubing. The sunsets are beautiful. The closest town is Bala which is 10 minutes away and has a grocery store, liquor store, beer store, bakery, ice cream - and a few good restaurants. "Pie" pizza place is literally 3 minutes away and the pizza is AMAZING! My daughter liked feeding the ducks. The property manager was available for any questions we had. Having said all of that - we hope to go back next year and stay at this cottage!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
