Property Details

Situated on Cowan Lake, a 70-acre spring-fed lake is this expansive 88-acre lot with a beautifully restored log home and lots of land and trails to explore. The lake is very private with only two other cottages being used in the summer and has very minimal boat traffic thus you'll be able to completely relax, unwind and enjoy the serenity and nature of the land. If you would like to experience the more fast-paced Muskoka lifestyle, Port Carling, the central Muskoka hub is only a 15 drive away!

The cottage features an impressive large two-level wrap-around deck. Off the main level, the deck offers four Muskoka chairs and loungers. From there, you can walk down to the covered lower deck (or access it off the lower level) where you will find two bistro tables with seating for three each and an outdoor dining table for 10. Continue down to the water where you will find a spacious dock with two Muskoka chairs and a floating raft to swim to.
While visiting, you must make time to explore the property - in both winter and summer it is magical! 88 acres of mixed forest with exposed granite ridges and stunning vistas with an approximately 1 km trail loop for an amazing walk where you may encounter a beaver, moose or deer that live in the area. Also on the property is a previous drying shed transformed into the artist/owner Tom Dietrich’s studio overlooking a natural pond full of turtles, frogs, and salamanders as well as a beautiful garden with stone pathways and fountain and artwork by the artist/owner. In the wintertime, there is a public snowmobile track in close proximity to the cottage as well as 4 pairs of snowshoes available.
