If you’ve been looking for a holiday home in Ontario’s cottage country, then you know how tight the property market in Muskoka is — particularly around Lake Joseph, one of the area’s most coveted waterways.

So when a property does go up for sale in the area — especially one that’s waterfront, expansive, and secluded — you best believe it’s in high demand.

The new land listing that is 364 Stanley House Road #LOT C, tucked away in an ultra-private cove of Whalon Bay, offers buyers a rare opportunity to build the custom cottage of their dreams, in a community that’s a home away from home for celebrities like Cindy Crawford, Steven Spielberg, and Kevin O’Leary.

Spanning 4.25 acres, and boasting 461 feet of rocky, unblemished shoreline, this gently sloped land is brimming with endless potential.

The topography is ideal, with accessible rocky plateaus and enough room to build a spacious cottage — and a two-storey boathouse.

Surrounded by mature pines and with no neighbours in sight, it’s a peaceful escape for city dwellers who need a break from the hustle and bustle of urban living.


The lot boasts northwest exposure, which means soft light all day long.

And, with its own sandy swim area, future residents won’t have to venture anywhere off the property to enjoy the pristine waters of Lake Joseph.


Our Favourite Thing

While the property feels remote and private, it’s just a 15-minute drive from the village of Rosseau, where you can grab groceries, a cup of coffee, or a nice meal at Crossroads restaurant. It’s the best of both worlds — a calm escape, while still being in arms reach of the welcoming communities of cottage country.


It's truly not everyday that a sprawling land listing goes up for sale along one of Muskoka's "big three" lakes.

So, if you've been waiting for a sign that says it's time to bring your cottage country dreams to life... this is it.
