Moon Struck cottage is centrally-located in Muskoka. The Moon River is a large river that flows out from Lake Muskoka to Georgian Bay, land-locked so it's really more like an exclusive private lake located in the heart of Muskoka.
Located only 10 minutes to Port Carling or 3 minutes to Bala. Close to the Port Carling Golf Club, the Lake Joe Club and others, it's the perfect place for golfing and great dining experiences.
Bala is a small town but packs a big punch!
For those seeking water sports, Bush's Waterpark is just a stone's throw away. Learn to water ski, wake board, or just improve your skills. Monday is market day in Bala, which hosts many local food artisans and admire the handiwork of the area's artists.
Bala is also home to the historical Kee to Bala, where until 1963 (when it was sold and renamed) hosted big bands like Louis Armstrong and the Dorsey Brothers for Saturday night dances for cottage owners. It has been now converted into an event venue, and a place to watch bands preform seasonally.
Around the corner is the Balarcade, the oldest arcade in the area. Fun for everyone and worth a look, many of the games are vintage original. In addition, Don's Bakery (a Muskoka weekend tradition since 1947) and Japsen Park with its playground are just around the corner.
This year-round retreat, with a well-appointed decor and its wonderful southern views will not disappoint. Mature trees adorn the property, giving it shade and privacy. Accessed year round with a well-maintained level driveway, which gives easy access for all of your guests. The cottage has an amazing 1200 feet of multi-tiered decks that provide incredible views throughout the home. The large dock with Muskoka chairs sit on to the water's edge, with 2 kayaks and a paddle boat just waiting for you, this the perfect place to enjoy the day. The home is built on a slight hill to the water, to take advantage of these breathtaking views, and there is a staircase with decks and walkways to the water's edge. For those that like fishing, just bring your rods to the dock and catch some bass, pickerel or pike, then head up to the BBQ to grill dinner.
This home features a modern, open-concept kitchen with an island, and opens up to the dining room to take advantage of the beautiful water views. The kitchen features a gas stove and stainless steel appliances - in addition, it is fully stocked with everything you need for food preparation, along with an assortment of tableware. The dining area is off the kitchen and the table that seats 10 in front of the large, south-facing windows that open onto a large deck perched above the water to maximize the views. Just off the dining room is the large living room, filled with comfortable furnishings, a majestic fireplace, pine ceilings and large wall filled windows. Here sits the Master King bedroom with its private deck and ensuite all with views to the water. There are also 2 more Queen bedrooms that share a full bathroom, both have ample closet and dresser space.
There is a large entertainment room with an audio-visual center, a flat screen TV, and a fireplace - here is a perfect place to watch a movie, or just stare out and take in the views.
