Sitting pretty overlooking Lake of Bays, an authentic cottage getaway has just hit the Muskoka market.

From its lakeside location to its central stone fireplace, 1058 Echo Bay Road epitomizes a family cottage retreat. The property is outfitted with a classic three-bed, two-bath cottage, plus a guest bunkie with an additional bedroom, two-piece bath, and an upper sleeping loft for the kids — providing ample space for everyone to enjoy a blend of connection and privacy.

While the address itself feels ultra remote, 1058 Echo Bay is a quick 10 minute drive to Dwight, or a half-hour drive to access all the conveniences of downtown Huntsville. Grocery shops, the LCBO, local eateries, and small-owned shops are all easy to get to, making for breezy weekend stock-ups.

But even with these offerings so close by, we imagine that once you've settled in, you'll be hard-pressed to leave this quaint cottage.

Spanning 1.55 acres with 175 feet of private shoreline , this property serves all the space a family needs to relax and play. An elevated, sloping lawn serves as the perfect backdrop for games of tag, while the boatport dock down by the water makes for an ideal tanning station. It's easy to imagine long mornings spent here, sipping coffee from a Muskoka chair (or long evenings spent doing the same, but swap in a glass of wine).

Meanwhile, the main cottage's wraparound deck is primed for BBQ dinners, to be served with a side of long lake views.


And all of this only speaks to the property's exterior — the inside of the cottage is an ultimate cozy and comfy escape. Beautiful wooden flooring and walls are matched by plank ceilings, bringing a "warm hug" feel to the cottage interior.

Sun pours into the dining area, which is flanked by massive windows, while the bedrooms each serve as their own private and inviting retreat. A massive stone fireplace anchors the space, serving as a perfect place to gather around on chillier summer nights.


Our Favourite Thing

We're smitten with this entire property, but we'd be remiss to not shine a spotlight on the A-frame bunkie that neighbours the main cottage. The one-bed, one-bath charmer is dreamy as they come, with wood walls and ceilings, and tile flooring underfoot. A cozy seating area and kitchen share the open-concept main space, and the loft above is perfectly suited for sleeping.

Which is all to say, if we're invited to spend the weekend, we've got dibs on the bunkie.


Inviting as the property already is, the location is also an ideal backdrop for the renovation or custom build of your dreams. When the time comes that your family desires a refresh, this lakeside escape will be waiting.

So, if this Echo Bay Road listing pulls on your heartstrings, don't hesitate to make a move. Now's the perfect time to take the plunge towards your summer vacation destination.
