Property Description

Located in the heart of Bala, this cottage is nestled between big trees on both side of property for privacy, an upper level deck with BBQ, lots of sun throughout the day with tons of outdoor places to sit, and the ideal place to come and relax!

Property Details

Dockside is located on Bala Bay on Lake Muskoka. You are about a 2 minute walk away from Bala Falls Pub and Moon River Lookout Restaurant. After some delicious food, you can go for a nice walk into town to get some fresh, homemade treats at Don's Bakery. Bala has plenty to do throughout the summer and this cottage is in a key location to a variety of attractions, including gift & clothing shops, grocery store, and the Bala Cove Marina! Bala is 15 minutes from Port Carling and 20 minutes from Gravenhurst. While not disruptive, the local train can be heard every so often in the near distance. The "Kee to Bala", a traditional waterfront concert-and event venue, is just minutes away and can be heard over the Bala Bay during events on some evenings.

Dockside is built on 3000 square feet of luscious grass with leveled ground, enclosed by big trees that face the bay and dock. Enjoy the peaceful outdoors underneath the outer deck where it seats 4 or the upper level walkout that is equipped for dining for 8 with a BBQ.
As you walk down the steps from the upper level deck, you will see a spacious and rare 50' wide dock that can seat over 10 people, with a sun shade, 6 loungers, and 4 chairs. From any of these views, you can enjoy the gorgeous waterfront. The dock comes equipped with a swimming ladder or you can slowly get your feet wet by the soft sand entrance at the shoreline. Roast marshmallows or share good stories around a warm, toasty fire at the outdoor fire pit that is just steps away from the bay.
