Property Details

The best of both lakes! Located within the Ames Narrows on the Joseph River, which is the first rock cut coming from Lake Rosseau which connects Lake Rosseau to Lake Joseph. This cottage offers the perfect location for guests looking to visit friends on either of the "Big 3". For local shopping and dining, Great Escape is quick 5 minute drive to Minett and 20 minutes to Rosseau and Port Carling.

This charming Joe River cottage offers extreme privacy, with a rare empty lot adjacent to the property. While guests may be eager to leave the city hustle and bustle, Great Escape offers multiple areas to entertain friends and family while away. One of the various entertaining spaces that can be enjoyed is the turret-shaped Muskoka Room. Perfect for day time lounging or escaping the bugs, this sought after cottage feature will be appreciated by all. The cottage deck is also a guest favourite! With west facing exposure, this portion of the property experiences all day sun and evening sunsets. While level land may be sparse, Great Escape is home to manicured gardens and stairwells leading down to the water. A short staircase equipped with railings will lead guests to a stone patio, where sunsets and campfires can be enjoyed from the comfort of a Muskoka chair. Beyond the firepit, two short staircases will lead to the property's waterfront! Once at the shoreline, a large boat port can be found. Slightly above the shoreline and to the right of the cottage, a charming log bunkie with a screened in porch can be used for additional sleeping accommodations.
