Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, chalet-style cottage, with lake views and sandy beach

Family friendly updated 3 bedroom cottage is located on a beautiful, crystal clear lake, that enjoys plenty of natural shoreline. There are 3 spacious decks on the grounds, which include a large 40 foot cottage deck, a suspended deck above the water and a waterfront wharf, attached to a 8' X 16' floating dock. This cottage enjoys a beautiful view out over the lake, and a fantastic shallow sand bottom swim area. The shoreline is natural rock and the property is typical rugged Muskoka, Canadian shield with a natural pathway leading to the waterfront area.

Inside, the cottage is beautifully appointed with hardwood flooring, soaring 20+ foot vaulted cedar ceilings along with oversized tall windows reaching up to the cathedral ceiling allowing plenty of natural light into the cottage and providing an unobstructed view out to the lake. The two large bedrooms are located on the main floor with closet space and dressers while the loft area is a great spot for the kids, with plenty of room to play, watch TV and sleep. The kitchen is open to the dining area with plenty of counter space, while the living area has 3 plush leather couches to watch TV or catch a movie.

There are two full bathrooms, one located on the main floor and the other in the loft, both with floor to ceiling natural stone appointments and creature comforts of home.

Come and enjoy life at the cottage as the wind whispers through the tall towering pines, while you sit on the deck and take in the natural beauty of the surroundings here on High Lake. Only 2 hours from Toronto!

About Lawrence and Carolyn Sager

We have been renting our cottage for 5 very successful years and many of our renters are return customers. Being a carpenter with appreciation for beautiful wood work, I have transformed our cottage into a prime rental property, offering all the comforts of home that our renters have come to expect. As an outdoor enthusiast, I love boating on our quiet lake and hiking on the nearby trails. My wife and I, along with our four children, have made many beautiful memories at our lakefront cottage and our renters have made their own also. I have enjoyed receiving many emails of appreciation from our customers, wishing our cottage was theirs. I look forward to many more seasons renting to families wishing to embark on a Muskoka adventure.

Lawrence and Carolyn Sager purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Lawrence and Carolyn Sager chose Muskoka Lakes

This Muskoka dream cottage has it all and offers our renters a true Muskoka experience. From vaulted cedar ceilings to expansive window views of the lake this modern cottage has it all. Our cottage is situated in a beautiful natural setting away from busy roads and bustling centres. That being said, we are close to many fantastic points of interest. Downtown Rosseau, Bracebridge, Huntsville and Port Carling are all a short car ride away and offer our renters unique Muskoka memories, whether is be for touring, shopping or dining.

What makes this cottage unique

High lake is a pristine Muskoka lake that offers our renters the ultimate waterfront experience. With under 50 homes in total, our renters enjoy natural and rugged waterfront views. Our cottage is centrally located on the lake with a south western exposure. Sit back on the dock in our Muskoka chairs and let the hours pass by while the waves gently lap the shore. Whether you are taking in the view of the nearby islands or enjoying beautiful sunsets, the hours in the day seem to fly by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage is modern and beautifully kept. The terrain surrounding the

cottage is Muskoka through and through with Canadian shield, large

coniferous pine trees, maple, birch and other deciduous trees aplenty. The

view and the vistas are vintage cottage country. If you are looking for a

vacation spot that is picturesque and will leave you with fond memories

long after your vacation then you’ve come to the perfect spot.

When we arrived everything we wanted and needed was at the ready. The

top-of-the-line bar-b-cue had spare propane tanks stored nearby. The large

deck attached to the cottage and overlooking the lake was perfect for our

meals or for just sitting around enjoying the view and having refreshments.

The cottage is beautifully appointed and furniture comfortable and modern.

The well designed kitchen has everything you need to make your stay a

pleasure. The bedrooms are large and the beds comfortable. The two

bathrooms made life easier for our four adults and two small children. The

upstairs bathroom shower, in particular, is a real joy. The washer and

dryer came in handy on more than one occasion especially with the two small

children, ages two and four. The satellite TV, the playstation, the puzzles

and the games all just added to the fun of being at the cottage.

The waterfront is as nice as you will find. The beach area lets the tots

and small children play easily in sight of parents, the dock and the deck.

The floating dock goes out just far enough to let small children use it to

touch bottom without feeling they are over their head. The paddle boat,

canoe, kayak and paddle board provide a great way to explore the lake and

enjoy the water. There are more than enough life preservers and paddles for

everyone. The fixed deck adjoining the floating dock has two levels with

Muskoka chairs. It is a lovely spot for morning coffee or to sit and watch

the children play in the water. The upper deck, also with Muskoka chairs,

is shaded and affords a view of the two lower decks, the dock and the lake.

You can easily spend most of your day here. There is something for everyone

to enjoy.

I recommend this vacation property to anyone wanting a break from the

hustle and bustle of the city and the pure enjoyment of quintessential

Stunning Muskoka Cottage on Beautiful High Lake
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

A true slice of Muskoka paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks enjoying the mostly peaceful (with minor exceptions for a noisy jet ski or two) Muskoka environment which this cottage provided.

Lots of room to accommodate 8 to 9 people; well laid out interior with very nice wood details. Beautiful bathrooms as well.

We really enjoyed the fairly easy access to the water for both swimming and boating activities.

Close proximity to Huntsville; Bracebridge; and Rosseau for grocery shopping needs. There is also a small general store located at Bent River - good place to purchase firewood and water jugs for the water cooler, as well as a few other items.

Also not too far from the Crossroads Restaurant, located in Rosseau, which serves fabulous meals.

The cottage owners were extremely responsive to any of our concerns or questions, and very pleasant to deal with.

Will definitely consider returning some time in the future.

Wonderful clean and relaxing cottage on quiet lake.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week long escape to High lake. The cottage and property are well maintained and the view each day of the lake was awesome. Quiet surroundings made this escape to nature relaxing and rejuvenating. The lake was perfect for swimming, canoeing, or taking the paddle boat out for a ride. Despite the heat in the city, a cool breeze at night from the lake helped us sleep each night and relax each day.

This cottage is clean with all of the comforts from home. Some very fine woodwork throughout the cottage adds to the beauty of the interior.

Three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms each with a shower made it easier for our family of five.

We had a wonderful relaxing week and would love to return next year.

Loved this little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband and older boys 20 and 17 decided this was where we were going to spend a week this summer. We allowed them each to bring a friend so the 4 males had the loft which worked out perfect, they slept in, stayed up late, watched movies and hung out in their own space. We also had a couple join us while we were there and we just had a great time. We loved the space, the option of a TV which we actually had on in the morning while we were cooking breakfast. We used all the boats and especially loved the SUP which we didn't even know were we getting until a few days before. When I was booking this the reason that I chose this cottage was a) the width of the dock so that many people could sit down there and not trip over each other, b) I also loved the loft with its own bathroom 👍🏻, C) all the outdoor seating areas and d) the shallow water area, To me these little things set this cottage apart from the rest. My boys love fishing and they didn't even spend that much time fishing we all just sat by the dock and enjoyed the water and each other, they didn't catch any fish but still had a fabulous week. I did bring a floating island and we spent a lot of time relaxing in it as well. From start to finish this was by far the best cottage rental I have done. Thank you!

Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us total. 4 adults and 4 kids (7,9, twin 15 year olds). Canadians by birth who live in the US my brother and I are drawn every summer to the lakes in Ontatio. This place was a gem! The directions were perfect. If you could hear us when we unlocked the door and walked into "the great room" with the WINDOWS and high ceilings you would have heard "ooooooo. aaaahhhh, ommygosh LOOK AT THE DOCK"

The 4 kids got the loft and were thrilled and even appreciated the gorgeous bathroom. The 2 main bedrooms were perfect, comfortable, clean. The bathroom on the main floor is gorgeous too.

We lived on the dock mostly and loved using your canoe, kayak, paddleboat and paddleboard. We also brought 2 kayaks and all of us had a blast touring the lake, listening to the loons, and even fishing (not much luck but it didn't matter). On the one or two times the weather was rainy we gathered around the giant and perfect dining table for games OR we watched something fun on tv that was suitable and made us all happy (American Ninja Warrior- lol). The grill is great. We also brought two hammocks and that was a blast. All in all, we laughed a lot and more importantly made memories. For an extra treat you can go to Lake Rousseau a 15 min drive and rent a speedboat and go tubing which we also did. The kitchen was great and the washer/dryer was incredibly handy right there!

Love this place! Thank you Carolyn and Lawrence!

Excellent Family Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at this wonderful retreat was both idyllic and serene.

The lake is calm and quiet and allowed us to relax and unwind to the sounds of the loons.

We were close to the wonderful small towns surrounding us, which allowed us to use the Rosseau Farmers' Markets , the Bracebridge Art Fair and the Huntsville Algonquin Theatre.

We fished , read, painted, swam and canoed. The hiking nearby allowed us to explore the water falls at the end of the lake.

The 'in and out' was easy and we were met with a clean space that felt like home within minutes of arrival!
