Waterfront properties in Muskoka are in short supply and high demand.

So it's not surprising, then, that the Kahshe Beach House — a seven-bedroom, five-bathroom cottage at 1016 Oak Road on the shores of Kahshe Lake in Gravenhurst — has been snapped up, after just two months on the market.

Going for a lofty $4.8M, the sale marks the second-highest sale of a Kahshe Lake property on record. And it's a testament to Halloran & Associates' unparalleled grasp on what it takes to move lakefront real estate in Ontario's cottage country, because it follows the team's $5.35M sale of 1026 Inchiquin Road, which shattered records during the summer of 2021.

Circling back to 1016 Oak Road: it boasts luxurious finishes, amenities galore, and a private sand beach offering spectacular waterfront views, it's the kind of place you'd never want to leave.

The home spans a whopping 5,097 sq. ft, meaning there's plenty of space for the whole family (plus a few friends) to gather and take in all that the beautiful Muskoka region has to offer. And with the property being just off Highway 11 — and only an hour and a half from the GTA — it's easy to zip up for a weekend escape, or to hide away for weeks at a time.

The property is actually home to two buildings — the main house, and a shoreline boat house that acts as an additional lakeside lounge space, with the seventh bed and a bath above.

Stepping inside the main house, you're immediately immersed in its thoughtful, custom design that exudes ultimate elegance. The centre of the house is the great room which, with its cozy-meets-beautiful stone fireplace, draws you in, just begging for you to curl up with a cup of hot chocolate in the colder months, or relax after a long day spent out on the lake during the summer.

The kitchen is any chef type's dream, with counter space for days thanks to a large eat-in island. Everything, from the SubZero fridge to the Wolf stove to the wine fridge to the two (yes, two) dishwashers, makes for breezy entertaining.


Floor-to-ceiling windows all along the back of the house offer unbeatable, southern-exposure, all-day-sun lake views, from virtually every angle — a feature that continues upstairs in the bedrooms as well. The bedrooms themselves are spacious and airy, offering a relaxing place to drift off to sleep each night, surrounded by Muskoka's serene nature.

Our Favourite Thing

As stunning as the above-ground floors of this cottage are, the lower level is where the fun really kicks into high gear. There, you'll find a games room with classic arcade games, air hockey, darts, a sauna, a theatre room, and a gym. Plus, the attached garage houses a golf simulator! You really would have almost anything you could need (or want) right at your fingertips.

The lakeside yard is also not to be missed, with its tiered stone patio housing the property's hot tub — a convenient amenity for when the lake gets a little too cold.

All in all, this is a spectacular, turn-key cottage that will undoubtedly give the lucky new owners an amazing place to relax, make memories, and enjoy the beauty of Ontario's cottage country.
