The sky may be greyer this time of year, but 1902 Foxpoint Road springs to life in the autumn.
This just-listed year-round family cottage or home sits on a stunning lot on Muskoka’s second-largest lake, Lake of Bays, and is nestled amongst towering trees that run the gamut of colours as autumn unfurls, from sun-kissed yellows to burnt oranges to punchy pops of red. The lot boasts 445 feet of natural rock and pine topography with panoramic views of crystal-clear and jewel-toned water.
But the picturesque backdrop is just what draws you in. It’s the cottage itself that will make you want to stay a while.
With dormer windows, stone walls, Wedgewood blue siding, and a 2,000-sq.-ft wraparound porch, the exterior of the home is charming, to say the least. Inside, you’ll marvel at what is truly a very elevated take on a traditional cottage home.
On the main level of the five-bedroom, five-bathroom home, you’re greeted by a bright but cozy living room, the focal point of which is a hand-crafted river rock fireplace that extends to the soaring 20’ ceilings. Natural light spills into the space thanks to the walls of floor-to-ceiling, douglas fir, Colonial-style windows surrounding the room.
Adjacent to the living room, you’ll find the chef’s kitchen and dining areas, which are outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of rich wood accents, including coffered ceiling beams, and walls of windows bringing the outdoors inside.
The kitchen in particular is complete with two sinks, a kitchen island, and white cabinetry that really pops against the warmth of the wood. From there, you can step into a sun-soaked ‘Muskoka room,’ which offers dual walk-out access to the outdoor space. The main level also includes a study/office, complete with its own river rock hand-crafted fireplace, as well as a large bedroom with an ensuite.
Paying homage to the rich history of ‘Olde Muskoka,’ reclaimed antique hemlock floors can be found throughout the entire cottage.

If you make your way up a hand-crafted staircase, you’ll find the remaining four bedrooms, as well as three ensuite bathrooms. The primary is spacious, with walkout access to a private deck overlooking the lake, not one, but two closets, and a four-piece, spa-like ensuite, which is inclusive of a soaker tub.
Charmed? Us too — but, hold on, because there’s more.
The future owners of this property will get to enjoy access to a large cedar dock, complete with a boat slip, a solar-powered lift, and stunning southwest exposure. As well, they will get first dibs on an accompanying parcel of land at 1902A Fox Point Road (1 acre and 390’ frontage), which is currently vacant and loaded with development potential.
