Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Dwight - Paper Birch Point

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.

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.

Great fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

Dons place was excellent for a 4 day getaway. The cottage had all the amenities as well as a beautiful view of the lake. The cottage was in a very central location between Dorset, Algonquin park and Huntsville. It was very clean and don was very helpful beforehand to answer any questions I had.

A little gem on Lake of Bays

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well equipped cottage with everything you need. The view from the front deck is spectacular, and it's a short walk down to the lake where the Muskoka chairs wait for you. We were able to rent Don's boat, and had a fabulous ride on the lake. The cottage is cozy, just perfect for a couple looking to get away. Don and Sue were wonderful hosts, and their cottage is next door if you need anything at all. We will be back to this little gem for sure!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Don's cottage was the best we ever had! Much better than Caribbean vacation! The location is perfect, the cottage layout is very convenient. The listing description was very accurate.

The property is very clean and fresh, cozy and comfortable, new furniture, bedding, appliances. Amazing view from the inside as well from the deck at any weather.

The owner provided an excellent service, nice greeting the guests with the jar of the homemade maple syrup.

I would definitely recommend this cottage to my friends and do my best to return next year.

The main attraction is the beautiful nature around you, warm clean lake, cute ducks.... We liked the trip to the Dorset, an interesting historic place nearby.

Many thanks to the owners of this nice cottage for the wonderful vacation!

Great getaway in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as advertised. We were looking for a private, quiet location for our getaway and found it here. An ideal setting for those looking to enjoy "life on the lake". The cottage is well maintained and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Lots of wildlife to interact with and a beautiful, private dock to enjoy the afternoon sun. Looking forward to going back again! Don and Sue are the ideal hosts.

Comfortable stay in great location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was a bit smaller than expected (bedroom was downstairs while kitchen/extra room and bathroom were upstairs) but had everything needed for a short and comfortable stay. The view from the terrace was very nice when the weather was nice and there were lots of starts to see each night we were there. Used the boat to go onto the lake and the trip was very nice and enjoyable. Would definitely recommend for a few relaxing days and for fans of wildlife as every day we were there we saw plenty of deer roaming about as well as ducks and chipmunks.
