With a large kitchen and living room, this cottage can accommodate 5 in two knotty pine clad bedrooms. The master bedroom with a queen sized bed is separated from the bunk bed and twin bed bedroom by the bathroom which offers a combination shower/tub. Primary heating (if necessary) is electric. Being so close to shore, A/C is provided by simply opening up one of the many windows that surround the cottage on all sides. The recent significant renovation to the living room with a raised ceiling, T&G pine paneling and a new laminate floor throughout the living room and back bedrooms is complete. Upgraded lighting with a signature overhead fan completes the new look. Please note, unfortunately, we are not wheel chair accessible. The walk is nearly 300 feet from the four car parking lot.


This two bedroom cottage sits near to the shore so that you can enjoy the sound of the lapping waves on the shoreline. With a large open front porch facing southwest across Lake Joseph and a screened in portion along the east side used for dining or quiet enjoyment, one can enjoy the view whatever the weather. With a large one slip boathouse and significant dock space, one can also be protected from the afternoon sunrays. The sandy small beach and lake bottom with shallow water permits all ages to enjoy the clean and crisp Muskoka water. Parking for up to four vehicles is possible with a tree-lined path from the parking area to the cottage (70 meters) giving you the authentic Muskoka feeling.

From golf to tennis to horseback riding, the area offers interests that suit many who may wish to go off property. As already mentioned, the lake offers tremendous fishing, boating and swimming and Lake Joseph connects in two places with Lake Rosseau (no locks) and then onto Lake Muskoka (via locks) for those who want to go out on the water with their boat for the full day. Boat launching is available close by for those wishing to bring their own watercraft. We provide a one slip boathouse with mooring inside and out. Swimming from dock or sandy beach. Raft off-shore. Sunday services are offered at the United and Anglican churches not 10 minutes from the cottage.
