It is always difficult to assess a cottage when the first time you see it is in November. Such is the case when we first visited Vista Lake. Even though we arrived in the late afternoon as the sun was waning, the cottage presented a welcoming, homey feeling. It was easy to see that this is one of those special summer places. We'll be adding summer photos as soon as we get the chance to obtain them!
Vista Lake is perfect for a most traditional family cottage vacation. It is just the right size for a small to medium family and oozes with Muskoka. Throw in a some majestic woods and a beach with a beautiful lake vista, add a nice size deck and an adjacent fire pit and we think you'll find this is made to order.
Inside, your group will find themselves with plenty of room in the large living area. An amply equipped kitchen is all you need to keep the food coming to hungry swimmers, and a dining room running alongside a large picture window that never lets you forget where you are.
You'll enjoy lazy days outdoors here, whether it is relaxing on the deck or sauntering down to the waterfront for a day of swimming, boating or sunning. The path to the water is not steep, but may not be suited to those with mobility challenges.
A week in cottage country is seldom complete without a day trip, and Vista Lake is positioned nicely for that. Bracebridge is just a few minutes away and has all you need for shopping and dining. A further drive takes you to the uniquely Muskoka offerings of Hunstville, Gravenhurst or Port Carling.
