My Rock is located on Bass Lake which is very centrally situated in Muskoka. Bass Lake is a smaller Muskoka Lake located 2 minutes from the southern shores of Lake Joseph-- with its calm waters, this lake is ideal for all watersports! Our location is also known for its outstanding bass and pike fishing, and the small inlets along the coast are ideal for canoeing and kayaking. It is 2 hours from Toronto and just 8 minutes to Bala or Port Carling! The very popular Bass Lake Restaurant is located within a 5 minute walk from the cottage, and serves many cottagers passing by from Lake Joseph, Rosseau and Lake Muskoka.
The owners of this cottage say that "going to this cottage feels like going to a resort". They call the bunkie "Peekin". The Rock cottage has been lovingly owned by the same owners since 1940, but has been torn down and rebuilt into the lovely cottage it is today. The owner takes great pride in her perennial gardens, in which she personally has placed every rock, stone and plant. The family spends most of their time on the verandah.
The outdoor area surrounding My Rock is mainly flat ground which is great for kids and elderly. The landscape is beautifully maintained, and the fire pit with Muskoka chairs really contributes the property. There is a flagstone pathway that leads you down to the water. The shallow entry into the water makes it great for young kids, yet the water becomes deep at the end of the dock. The cottage has Western exposure and offers the use of a paddleboat, canoe and 800 sqft of covered front deck. The deck is equipped with lots of extra nice chairs with cushions, dining for 6 and a propane BBQ!
The kitchen and the island both have granite counter tops. The dining room has seating for 6 and a walkout to the deck. Off of the dining room is the Great Room with a sofa, 4 chairs, propane fireplace, 50-inch flat screen with satellite TV, ceiling fan, large windows and lots of natural light. A King bedroom with a TV can be rearranged into two twin beds. The laundry room with an extra sink and storage rounds out the main floor.
The bedrooms on the upper level consists of 2 double beds, a double bed, and a Master Queen bed with electric fireplace and satellite TV with DVD player. There is also access to the deck from the main hallway.
There is a bar with seating for 3, a family room with a flat screen satellite TV with surround sound and a DVD player. An exercise room with a treadmill, stationary bike, weights and an exercise ball completes the lower level.
This cozy Guest Bunkie offers a single bed and nice living area and a lovely breeze at night.
