Property Details

Summer Solitude is a beautiful cottage located in Lake of Bays, close to all the amenities of Dwight 5 minutes away and Huntsville (15 min) for full town amenities, such as hospital and other services.

A huge covered porch along the sides of the cottage creates many relaxing sitting areas to enjoy the beautiful view. Gently-sloping land and lit flagstone paths lead the way to the fire pit area and dock. The property surrounding the cottage is very private and offers a very peaceful atmosphere. The water has shallow and sandy areas as well as deeper water at end of dock.​


The use of various quality wood (walnut, cedar, pine & oak), slate, and river rock fill the interior throughout giving it a classic cottage look yet maintaining the highest quality. The use of large windows brings the outdoors in and offers beautiful views. Many sitting areas gives even a large group lots of space for relaxation. This iconic cottage has true Muskoka flair!


A large front entrance that features high ceilings leads the way into a very open-concept kitchen, dining area, Great Room, family room and a separate four-season Muskoka Room. The kitchen is the ultimate chef's kitchen, equipped with a large pantry, 6 burner gas oven with a charcoal option, double oven, microwave, an island with seating for three, plus a large fridge with a freezer. The dining table is a picnic-style with benches running along either side of it, seating 10 people easily. There are two separate living areas on the main floor. One of them is a cedar-lined octagonal Great Room with a 360-degree fireplace, walnut floors and a peaked copper ceiling with a fan. The 360-degree room overlooks a family room with a cabinet containing the TV. A very relaxing Muskoka Room offers a river rock fireplace, telescope, deer antler chandeliers, and gorgeous oversized furniture. Also on the main floor is the study with a desk and antler chandelier, large windows overlooking the verandah and a Queen-sized Murphy Bed.


The upper level of Summer Solitude features 5 bedrooms. A Master King bedroom with a 5-piece ensuite and TV, a Queen bed with a 3-piece ensuite, two double beds each with trundles with a 3-piece ensuite, bunk beds (double on bottom; single on top), and a twin trundle bedroom. The Master bedroom has doors that open to over look the Great Room, a TV, 5-piece ensuite with a shower with 6 shower heads, clawfoot tub, and double sinks. The main bathroom on the upper level has a tub and shower combo.
