DARE to COMPARE! The Birch rates will save you vacation spending money compared to many other similar cottages/homes located nearby that go for $1,500-2,000/wk more. We only rent weekly or monthly in the summer. This former home, now our 4-season cottage, is located in the beautiful Ontario Muskoka Lakes Region, on the same Lake Rosseau shoreline of Minett, ON where you will find Cleveland House, The Rock Golf Course and the Marriot Resort. We can accommodate a maximum of 8 persons at any one time, including guests; those 2 and under are not part of the count. It is located just north of Port Carling along the road leading to the village of Minett along Peninsula Road 7. This is just 2.5 hours north of Toronto. It is a year-round rental property with car access directly to the door. Boat launches are nearby with entertainment, artisans, crafts, antiques and golfing galore. Gravenhurst's Opera House is nearby as is the Port Carling Dinner Theatre. It is in the heart of autumn's colour cavalcade and the Cranberry festivals of Bala. A main feature is the dinner cruise offered by the Muskoka ships like the Segwun that sail daily. AC, Internet/WiFi should be available this summer as well as concierge service plus linens.You can also tether to your phone data plan as needed.

This 2300+ sf total space that will sleep the maximum capacity of 8 persons (babes 2 and under not included) is spacious. The Birch is a fully winterized Square foot home/cottage graced with solid pine of the original cottage and a continuation of that pine throughout the renovated interior including the completed lower floor which includes a large recreation room with a walkout patio door. It is hoped that AC and the basic Internet will be made available.


The 9.5 acre shared property make this unique and safe, with a gentle, grassy slope to the child friendly beach. A perennial flower and shrub garden greets your view as you face the beach front. Other cottages/homes have full time residents; however, the space is non-intrusive and they are all very Muskoka friendly. The surround deck is very private and the distance and slope to the beach at the water is child and senior friendly.
