Wooden steps lead you to the upper level of the cottage that boasts a wraparound porch and large deck. Here you will find an outdoor dining table with seating for 10 and another relaxing seating area with multiple Muskoka chairs and a propane bbq. This deck will treat you to an amazing view of the lake and perfect sunsets! From this upper level, stone steps and path lead you down a gentle slope to the waters edge. A good sized dock with ample seating provides sun with all day and deep water for diving and swimming. Access the steps to the dock from any one of the lower level walkouts! There's also a walk-in to the water from the grassed boat ramp.

This well equipped open concept kitchen has a Jenn-Air cooktop, island seating for 3 and a dining table with seating for 8. The kitchen is open to the expansive great room and has a walkout to the large deck with easy access to the barbeque.
The large great room is open to the kitchen and dining area. The large floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in. Enjoy an evening lounging on the comfortable seating by the massive stone, wood burning fireplace and flat screen tv.
Spend an evening away from the bugs in this comfortable screened in Muskoka Room off the Master bedroom.
The bright lower level rec room treats you to another cozy seating area for lounging in front of a stone, wood burning fireplace.
