    Accommodation in boathouse

Offering 460 feet of frontage and over 4.5 acres of gentle land, this property is ideally located just minutes from Port Carling on the Indian River less than 500 meters from the mouth on the Lake Rosseau side.

Enjoy Muskoka in all four wonderful seasons with excellent access off of a municipally maintained road. This wonderfully private Muskoka lot avoids a portion of the “Big Lake” premium, yet still benefits from a convenient location within a short boat ride from the amenities of town, Windermere House, Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club, and many more appealing destinations on Lakes Rosseau and Joseph. Being just a few hundred meters off the main lake, the property offers remarkable long views out the river and across an extensive stretch of Lake Rosseau. Adding to the appeal of this rare and alluring location is the fact that the property is well recessed from boat traffic, as boaters are kept at bay by a most advantageous navigational buoy. Large clearings and level grassy areas are perfect for family fun and games while exquisite mature forest to the north and south contributes to supreme privacy. Eastern exposure provides sunrises that will awaken the soul, while topography and tree position allow plenty of sunshine to reach the property throughout the day. Such a level, user-friendly property is difficult to find in Muskoka.

The solid, spacious cottage can be used year-round and has large principle rooms. The main living spaces enjoy fabulous lake views. The Great Room is a wonderfully bright space with vaulted ceilings and a massive Muskoka stone fireplace. Flowing from the Great Room are the spacious dining room, which can easily accommodate many diners, and the inviting sun room. The sun room is surrounded by four walls of sliding doors and is the perfect spot to relax and take in the incredible view. The kitchen has an abundance of storage and counter space. The master bedroom is an inviting haven with a wonderful lake view, sliders to the deck, and an ensuite bath. Two other bedrooms have big windows and share a functional combination of a two piece bathroom and separate shower room. An interlocking patio at the rear of the cottage can be accessed directly from a door in the kitchen and is an ideal bar-be-que area, while a sprawling deck spans the front of the entire cottage.

Two boathouses bookend the shoreline, only adding to the already exceptional privacy at this property. On the north side sits a long-lived 2-storey boathouse which invokes an atmosphere reminiscent of a bygone era, with its long, narrow boat slip designed to house a classic, wooden Muskoka beauty. The accommodation in this boathouse is distributed among both floors and includes 3 bedrooms, a 4-piece bathroom, living area, kitchen and screened Muskoka room. On the lot’s south side is the second boathouse – a sturdy single-slip, single-storey boathouse which can accommodate the wider hulls of today’s boats.

This outstanding Muskoka land warrants the realization of its new family’s cottage dream, whatever that may be. A charming and functional retreat as it stands, this cottage and boathouse combination is currently an inviting family gathering place, remindful of cottage traditions rooted in generations past. Enjoyed as is or renovated and modernized, it could easily be the setting for Muskoka memories made now and in the future. Alternatively, its new owner could redevelop this A+ property. With its rare, level topography, captivating lake view, year-round access, and ideal location near Port Carling, this is a special offering. Properties of this quality are few and far between.
