In the heart of Huntsville, a new lakeside listing is inviting you to embrace the cottage country experience of your dreams.

Located at 4163 South Portage Road on the coveted Lake of Bays, the classic cottage boasts 195 ft of sandy shoreline with southeast exposure.

In the summertime, the whole family will savour days spent splashing in the quiet bay. Shallow entry, plus a dock, make for perfect swimming conditions — jumps into the lake will be especially tempting after a day spent on the golf course in town, just a short drive away.

During colder seasons, access via a year-round municipally maintained road makes visiting your northern getaway easy. (The ski hills of Huntsville, located nearby, beckon for weekend trips!)

Sitting pretty on a 1+-acre lot, the main cottage is made for connecting with family and friends. The open-concept main level, complete with an eat-in kitchen and adjacent dining area, is laid out perfectly for entertaining.

Even better, this central hub boasts windows overlooking the lake, while a walk-out to an airy Muskoka porch stems off the living room.

Also on the main level are three bedrooms, a four-piece bath, and a sauna to swoon over.


On the upper level, an expansive and open space -- complete with an upper sun deck with lake views -- serves as another gathering area. Also on this floor are a bunkie, currently used as a storage space, and a second washroom.


Our Favourite Thing

What we love most about this listing is the way it invites its lucky buyer to live out their ultimate cottage country dream — be that with the cottage as it is, or with renovations made. The cottage itself is cozy and comforting, exactly as you hope a classic Muskoka getaway will be. But if you crave a more contemporary escape, that's no issue; the sprawling lot, sandy shoreline, and lush grassy lawns serve as a perfect backdrop for you to bring your vision to life.


Whether this cottage country getaway is picture-perfect for you in its current form, or you'd like to see its redevelopment potential realized, 4163 South Portage Road is where your Muskoka dreams can finally come true.
