Everyone has their own idea of a dream cottage escape, but there are some properties that appeal to just about anyone's taste.

The luxurious oasis waiting at 1016 Oak Road in South Muskoka is one of those.

Dubbed Kahshe Beach House, this seven-bedroom, five-bathroom cottage was built just last year on the shores of Kahshe Lake in Gravenhurst. With luxurious finishes, amenities galore, and a private sand beach offering spectacular waterfront views, it's the kind of place you'll 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-yet-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 backyard 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 future owners an amazing place to relax, make memories, and enjoy the beauty of Ontario's cottage country.
