Blue Jay Cove is an elegant cottage with everything to offer! Just 10 minutes away from Dorset and Baysville for the LCBO, restaurants, and groceries. 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. Long Line Lake Road has very few cottages, is not a through road, and has minimal traffic. The waterfront is also very quiet. In addition, right across Hwy 117 is Lake of Bays, with marina access less than a 2-minute drive.
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 and air conditioning) 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. If you prefer, the hot tub is also available for year-round enjoyment.
The level grassland 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. In the winter months, activities such as ice skating, snowshoeing and tobogganing are also available for guests to enjoy.
Guests enter the cottage through the front foyer, which offers a beautiful view down Long Line 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 countertop. Proceeding past the primary staircase and through to the open-concept, two storey 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 has seating and a further dining table that 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 TV on a rainy day.

Children will enjoy playing with the many classic toys including a wooden train set, board games and books. Next to the bonus 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.
