Property Details

Prime location on Gull Lake only 7 minutes from the downtown core of Gravenhurst! The Big Cottage boasts coveted south-west exposure, a sandy walk-in off the shore and stellar sunsets!

Located on the west coast of Gull Lake, across from the Gull Lake Rotary Park, The Big Cottage is a beautiful retreat nestled among the trees. Only 7 minutes to the town of Gravenhurst for all amenities including restaurants such as The Oar and Boston Pizza! Get your picture taken on the famous gigantic yellow Muskoka chair outside of Sawdust Brewery. Then, enjoy an evening stroll down the docks of the Wharf where you can shop and dine while watching the Muskoka Steamships drift in and out of port! Be sure to attend the Gravenhurst farmers market featured every Wednesday across from the Wharf, where fresh local produce and small shop products are featured.

THE BIG COTTAGE is nestled in a private bay with a point. An expansive deck running the full length of the cottage features multiple outdoor dining areas and ample room to enjoy the afternoon. A gentle slope with large stone slabs guides you down to the waterfront where a sandy beach with deep water awaits your best dive at the end of the dock! The dock area features sun all day and a beautiful spot for viewing sunsets!
