Overview

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.

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.

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!
