About the property

1 Bedroom lakefront cottage with spectacular views

Completely renovated! Fully equipped, clean and comfortable 1 bedroom cottage includes everything you will need for your vacation. Beautiful west facing view with spectacular sunsets. Great relaxing, reading, swimming and fishing off your own dock. Miles of boating on pristine Lake of Bays. Outstanding golf and hiking nearby. Shopping locally in Dwight, Huntsville and Dorset. Short drive to Algonquin Provincial Park.

Cottage includes a large shady deck, Weber propane BBQ, private dock with both sun and shade and private driveway. Canoe comes with cottage. Satellite TV with HBO and Movie Channel. Ideal for a couple's getaway. Fishing boat and motor available for rent.

This is not part of a resort. It is a private cottage in a natural setting on one of Muskoka's top lakes. Relax and enjoy cottage life as it was meant to be. We have had couples return for over 15 years limiting availability so book early.

wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully located and very private, well equipped and updated. On dead end road so very little traffic. Be aware stairs to bedroom are narrow and somewhat steep.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great for a retreat for two. It has easy water access with a great dock and a canoe. It is located far enough from town but close enough to restaurants and area attractions

Clean, cozy and convenient are the three words that describe this cabin

Lovely stay at Paper Birch Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and l had a wonderful time at this cottage. Don was a very welcoming host. The house is compact but well designed, freshly decorated and clean. It has everything you need. There are plenty of walks nearby and Algonquin park up the road is a must but our favourite thing to do was to sit on our private jetty on the lake with a glass of wine watching the sunset - heaven!! Will definitely recommend to friends.

Beautiful cottage retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely retreat, clean, updated, beautiful view from the deck and dock.

Walks are close by, and easy to use, birding is good.

Great hospitality. Restaurants were wonderful in the area,

Algonquin is close by, colours were spectacular this year, everywhere.

We would recommend this to family and friends.
