What comes to mind when you think of the quintessential lake house? For us, it’s a cozy but light-filled abode that’s merely steps away from the water.

And that’s precisely what you get with Kahshe Lake River House. This family-friendly home-away-from-home (or, simply, home) sits on a grassy, eight-acre lot in Gravenhurst, and backs onto a stretch of water that connects Kahshe Lake (to the west) and Bass Lake (to the east).

Once you have a chance to soak in the au naturale locale, you’re bound to find yourself charmed by the four-bedroom, three-bathroom main house. With tall windows and warm wood finishes throughout, it feels like nothing short of an extension of the stunning surroundings.

On the main level, you’ll find the living and dining rooms as well as the kitchen, which are all open-concept. The living room is the most eye-catching space in the home. It’s doused in natural light, has dramatic cathedral ceilings, and boasts a wood-burning fireplace with a rustic stone hearth.

The main level also includes a feature that is pretty much a must in place as scenic as Gravenhurst: a sun-soaked solarium. Over this bright and airy space, we're swooning.

The primary bedroom is located upstairs, and it benefits from a private TV area, a spa-like bathroom, and a walk-in closet. From there, you can venture up to a near-incognito loft level.


Another bedroom is located on the lowermost floor of the main home. The floor additionally accommodates a recreational area that’s ideal for those rainy days that are better spent indoors.

Also on the property, you’ll find a three-car garage and a private one-bedroom cabin, which touts a large den, a propane fireplace, and deck that overlooks the waterfront. It makes for the perfect guest suite — or sleepover spot, for when the kids have their friends over.

Our Favourite Thing

We’re in love with how this property practically sits on the water’s edge, and comes with its own private dock to boot. Can you think of a better way to spend your summers (and springs and autumns, for that matter) with the family than lakeside?

Now for the creme de la creme: the outdoor space, which has already been outfitted with a paved area for barbecuing and private dock. From said dock, you can enjoy more than 430 feet of sunny northwestern shoreline, magical sunset views, and the perfect spot to cannonball into the water. Families can swim, kayak, and canoe to their heart’s content.

Despite the clear vacation vibes of the Kahshe Lake River House, the property is just a 90-minute drive from the Greater Toronto Area, making for a quick and easy escape from the city. Or, for long weeks spent away from the hustle and bustle.
