10 minutes away from Dorset and Baysville for the LCBO, restaurants, and groceries. Right across Hwy 117 is Lake of Bays, with marina access less than a 2-minute drive. Tennis, sailing and golf clubs are within a 5-minute drive and offer plenty of summer camps and activities for families.
The cottage is in a tranquil location. Longline Lake Road has very few cottages, is not a through road and has minimal traffic. The waterfront is also very quiet and seldom will you see a boat on the water.
This fantastic property boasts the best view on the lake and is sure to be everything you are looking for during your Muskoka holiday. The professionally landscaped property offers expansive gardens that bloom all spring and summer. The 5 bedroom and 3 baths in the cottage can be split to accommodate a main living space with 3 bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen and 3 twin beds) and 2 baths, and a guest suite with 2 bedrooms (2 queen beds), 1 bath and separate climate control. There is also a Bunkie (with electricity) available for use. Two fully screened-in Muskoka rooms are the perfect place to sit an enjoy dinner or a drink after a day of fun on the lake.
The level grass-land that surrounds the cottage gently slopes down to the dock and is perfect for a family with young kids. The dock extends off a shallow sand beach which is great for swimming or just wading in the water. A semi-circle driveway that supports an abundance of parking spots opens onto the front, side and back yard. A basketball net, jungle gym, hammock, floating swim dock as well as an outside table round out some of the key outdoor features. Plenty of further outdoor activities are at your fingertips, with hiking/snowshoeing trails located right on Longline Lake Road.
Guests enter the cottage through the receiving area, which offers a beautiful view down Longline Lake through the large picture window in the great room. The travertine floor complements the Cape Cod style interior and is carried into the adjoining powder room, which is well finished with a marble counter top. Proceeding past the primary staircase and through to the open concept, two-story great room brings the post and beam architecture and large river rock wood burning fireplace into view. There is plenty of seating for guests to relax and view the lake or enjoy a 40" flat screen TV. For further entertainment, a DVD player and built in wall/ceiling speaker system (kitchen, great room and large Muskoka room) with Bluetooth connectivity is available.
The custom kitchen was designed with efficiency in mind and will suit cooks and bakers alike, featuring a Viking gas range, Bosch dishwasher, full-size fridge, pantry closet, wrap around counters and island with butcher block counters. The eating area is comprised of a dining table that expands to accommodate 12 as well as an additional drop leaf table that can be set up for larger gatherings. The attached fully screened Muskoka porch, which has seating and a further dining table, can be opened to the living space, making it perfect for entertaining.
Located off the great room is a lounge area decorated in a traditional cottage pine with tongue and groove wainscoting. This area features a separate entrance for those choosing to use the space as a suite. A large L-shaped down couch, 60" smart TV, Blu-ray player and sound system make this the perfect place to watch a movie on a rainy day. Attached to the lounge is a bar/kitchenette with slate flooring, double sink, wine fridge, bar fridge, additional full-sized fridge, microwave and granite countertops. This kitchenette offers a full set of additional cutlery, dinnerware and glassware and is located next to a second fully screened muskoka room. A newly renovated 3-piece bathroom with slate flooring, and honed Italian Pietra Grigio marble counters is located across from a main floor bedroom (queen bed).
Climbing the second staircase leads to the games room with air hockey, rod hockey and karaoke, as well as many board games, books, a puzzle table and seating. Next to the games room is another bedroom with a queen bed. Note this area can be closed off and form part of the suite for those that choose.
The master bedroom, with a king-size bed, backs onto the games room and has views down the lake. Walking out to the second-floor terrace, with a view over the great room, will lead to the over-sized, 5-piece family bathroom, with a generous soaker tub, shower with dual heads for kids and adults, and an in-wall audio entertainment system. At the other end of the terrace are the final two bedrooms and a work space/desk area. One contains a queen bed and the other contains 2 twins and one twin bunk over a desk.
The basement, with separate climate control, offers the perfect place for kids to enjoy themselves with seating and a 40" flat screen TV, DVD player and gaming system; also recently added is a professional foosball table. A separate entrance allows for easy access to firewood and a bounty of sporting gear and games such as bocce, croquet, volleyball, etc. Laundry facilities, a chest freezer and third fridge are also located on the lower level.
The professionally landscaped property offers expansive gardens that bloom all spring and summer. The lot has a large level area surrounding the cottage which allows plenty of space for kids and adults to play. The bunkie, which sits across the drive from the kitchen entryway holds a twin over twin bunkbed and a twin over double bunkbed. The bunkie has insulated walls and a ceiling fan as well as a TV and DVD player to give kids a space to relax on their own.
