Property Description

Luxury Cape Cod cottage on Lake of Bays! With lake-facing window walls, southeast exposure, and a glass enclosed 4 season Muskoka Room, this contemporary vacation getaway is sure to earn a special place in your heart!

Property Details

This Lake of Bays gem is located on the southwest side of the lake and nicely positioned close to amenities, while still being separate from the busy hubs of the lake. Enjoy shopping and restaurants close by in Baysville and Huntsville, only a 10 and 20 minute drive respectively.

THE HERMITAGE provides you with a property that is second to none. It sits on a beautiful flat lot that is perfect for a family with young children. The surrounding trees present a secluded and quiet ambiance, which allows you to privately enjoy all that Muskoka has to offer. The deck is accompanied by two dining areas that offer unbeatable southeast exposure and sunrise views. A naturally designed stone walkway leads you down to Muskoka chairs surrounding a fire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows. Vast flat grounds of grass that separate the deck from the beach is an amazing area for activities such as badminton or volleyball. The private sandy beach invites you out to 285 feet of shoreline where the shallow, sandy water greets you. The clear waters extend out alongside the dock that leads you to the two-slip boathouse, completing this very special Lake of Bays offering.
