Property Description

Incredibly charming property featuring a 4bedroom 2bath restored farmhouse cottage, with southern exposure and an expansive beach area! Gorgeous buck rail fencing and mature trees emit a "home sweet home" vibe that will have you returning every year!

Property Details

Nestled along the south eastern shores of Lake of Bays, The Homestead is only 30 minutes from both Bracebridge and Huntsville respectively! On your way to the cottage you will pass through the quaint town of Baysville which features the Lake of Bays Brewing Company, The Fork in the Road restaurant and the Muskoka famous "Yummies in a Jar". Additionally, the Cast Iron restaurant is a local favourite and 'Ms. Nelles', an original restored century home, offers sandwiches, coffee, and excellent ice cream in the summer!
Venture into the town of Huntsville for a day to peruse the quaint shops on the main street with ice cream or famous Beavertail in hand! Enjoy fine dining at the Artisan House, Tall Trees or indulge in the best pasta in the north at the Little Place by the Lights! Children would enjoy an afternoon zinging through the trees at Huntsville's Treetop Trekking Zipline Adventure park! Deerhurst Resort offers year-round activities for all and is only 40 minutes away! Additionally, Hidden Valley Resort is Huntsville's ski hill, superb for children and beginners looking to spend a day on the slopes. A 2km trail through Arrowhead Park is a superb experience, especially at night as it is lined with tikki torches!
Those seeking an adventure, Algonquin Park is also only 40minutes away and offers excellent hiking trails with lookouts and camping sites.

"THE HOMESTEAD" - As you arrive to this very special property you will pass a small parking area on your right, lined with a beautiful curving woodpile. Mature maple and pine trees with buck rail fencing winds you back in time and will have you envisioning what the farmhouse once was! Tastefully restored, the exterior boasts white siding with black trim finishes, and oozes original charm! An incredible view over Lake of Bays will take your breath away as you make your way down to the water via oversized granite steps passing a tetherball area. Down at the water, a glorious beach awaits a game of volleyball or provides the perfect wading conditions into the lake! In the evening, enjoy warming up in the wood-burning cedar hot tub. A fire pit with seating for 6 invites you to gather around as the sun goes down, and roast marshmallows while counting the stars!
During the winter, a skating rink can be provided for outdoor enthusiasts! 1 exterior boat parking spot is available to guests.
