Property Details

Sonshine Bay is a great cottage, perfectly suited to young families with kids due to the beach and shallow lakefront, quiet private peninsula for outside playing and full-on Lake Rosseau big water southern exposure! Beach is a sandy bottom. With its hard-packed sand and shallow entry, it makes a great location for young kids to learn to waterski and tube from! Also great floating raft anchored out in front of the cottage a great swim destination for kids.

Cottage is at the end of a narrow peninsula, very close to water on 3 sides, keeping the air circulating and adding a wonderful breeze. Nice privacy and lots of stable, level land for kids to play badminton or hide-and-seek, yet within 5 minutes walking distance to the park amenities of Royal Muskoka. Play on baseball diamond, tennis, basketball and playground.


Cottage decor is upscale, light and airy, painted white in the Great Room with comfortable white furniture, wood-burning fireplace and large TV.  New modern kitchen with traditional charm will delight any cook, or someone that just likes a clean, well-equipped kitchen!  Gorgeous dining table overlooking waterfront can seat up to 12. Muskoka Room has a separate seating area with TV and games table and surrounded on 2 sides by screened sliding doors that open to let the breeze flow through.

Cottage consists of 4 bedrooms with 2 Queen bedrooms on main floor off of the Great Room and 2 on the lower level.  Master is a King-size bedroom with ensuite containing a bathtub and there is a large 2nd bedroom in the lower level - a family bedroom, containing a Queen bed and 2 Double bunk beds. The lower level has an extra fridge and laundry and walkout to the lakefront. In addition to the master ensuite, there are main floor and lower level bathrooms, both with showers.

Just off the Great Room there is a walkout to a large deck with Muskoka chairs around a propane-fueled firetable to enjoy gentle conversation and the cooler night air after you have watched the sunset.  Also here is the stainless steel chef's BBQ hooked into a propane line.

Just beyond the deck is the nearby Kids bunkie containing a bunk bed and single bed, making it fun and safe for kids to 'camp out'.  

There is a floating raft in the water which also is a great destination for kids to swim to and play around.
