Gravenhurst Cottage Rental Photos and Description

This amazing cottage retreat is located directly on the waterfront, less than 30 feet from the waters edge. The property boosts almost 5000 sqft of living and entertainment space, giving everybody his individual space or getting everybody to party together in the open concept dining, living room and kitchen area. Enjoy the stunning sunset views from two separate sitting areas, kitchen, a private deck by the cottage, and a sitting area at the water level.

In July of 2015 we just finished a $600.000 CAD renovation of the entire place including new furniture indoor and outdoors. We are very pleased with the results and hope you will be as well.

A very rare sandy beach with shallow water is great for kids of all ages. On the dock you have a great sun tanning area as well as space for 2 boats and jet skis if you wish.

Through the large 10 feet sliding doors you enter the 1000 sqft deck and you ready to enjoy the probably best view in Muskoka. The new BBQ will be a delight for any hobby or master chef.

There are 2 master suites with ensuites and an other king size bedroom there is enough prime space available. 6 of the bedrooms are located in the main house and 2 in the self contained apartment with separate entrance, own kitchen, bath room and an adjoining Muskoka room (screend in).

Bedrooms: 2 bedrooms with king beds in main house

3 bedrooms with 2 single beds in main house

1 bedroom with a queen bed in main house

1 bedroom with a queen bed in self contained apartment

1 bedroom with 1 double bed in self-contained apartment

The large living room with cathedral ceiling features an amazing sitting area and a magnificent view of the lake. This lakeside retreat has three levels of very roomy living, so you can choose to gather in the spacious living room area or slip away to a quiet corner for some alone time. Two dining spaces, a separate dining room blends in with the open concept kitchen and living room creating an incredible area for fun and entertainment, and another one facing the lake view. 

One of the bedrooms on the upper level is great for the youngsters... with twin beds, a beautiful pine setting and a fine view of Lake Muskoka. Another of the upstairs bedrooms is the master room, it has a beautiful decorative finish and features sliding glass doors to a private balcony and view of the garden.

Thats the place to entertain or just hang out with all your friends or family, we will do our best to make it an experience.

Move in and enjoy!

Spectacular Spectaular Spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this cottage for 2 weeks in the summer immediately after a major renovation. We were absolutely floored by this property. The great room had a very impressive glass partition that opened on command to create the perfect indoor/outdoor living area where we spent the majority of our time. Brand new spa-like bathrooms throughout and a brand new kitchen with top of the line appliances made us feel like we were in a luxury hotel. Muskoka is one of the most impressive lakes in all of Canada and this cottage had a breathtaking view of the lake. We highly recommend this cottage for its location, view and cleanliness. The rooms are very comfortable and the furniture is surprisingly modern and basically brand new! The dock is perfect if renting a boat from the nearby wharf or to swim from.

Lovely setting - very disappointed with the house

  • 2 of 5

Lovely setting on Lake Muskoka. Convenient to Gravenhurst. Nice sandy beach & long dock. Sorry to say...... Very disappointed with the condition of the house. Needs lots of maintenance - unfinished porches, construction material laying around outside, bedrooms without doors, overgrown shrubbery, rotting doors and windows, no dressers or drawers in many bedrooms, no towel bars in any bathroom. Kitchen was not equipped for a large crowd - no waste can, no pot holders, short on glasses and essential supplies. House is actually 5 bedrooms, not 7. The 2 additional bedrooms are in an attached apartment, which was inconvenient, unsightly & unfinished. Local manager was helpful with problems as was the cleaning staff. Disappointing long awaited vacation to Muskoka.

Great, spacious cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend at this spacious, waterfront cottage in Gravenhurst. Cottage was equipped with everything we needed and provided lots of room for guests and entertaining. These pictures definitely don't do it justice, it really is a great place! Would recommend and hopefully will visit again soon!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this cottage over the weekend. Incredibly spacious and has plenty to do in and around the cottage. Absolutely serine with a beautiful view of the lake with a very short drive to the town for all your needs. Shallow waters with a dock allows for lots of fun in the water along with a canoe that's provided for some paddling. House is broken into two living sections which helps for families with babies or people who would like the additional privacy. Lots of living space with two living rooms (a TV in the basement living area would have been amazing, but the large screen in the living room is good), with plenty of bedrooms and washrooms. Many LCD's around the house with central air. The property manager was also highly accessible, very accommodating and super easy to work with. Would recommend, and will be back next year!
