This Waterfront Muskoka Cottage is a Picture-Perfect Winter Getaway


Ontario’s undisputed cottage country is in Muskoka. And, for the contrarians, this for-rent four-bedroom lakeside cottage on the periphery of Port Carling on Mortimers Point serves scarcely a reason to argue otherwise.

The 4,500 sq.ft. property has an additional 245 feet of frontage, but it’s all neatly nestled between trees and a placid bay.

Renovated to the nines, this opulent vacation getaway available via Muskoka District Rentals — dubbed Four Seasons Lake Muskoka — has a stocked gourmet kitchen with a wet bar-meets-island, double sink, gas cooktop, gas oven, and even an ice cream maker.

In addition to a sectional dining area that seats eight, there’s a large deck with a shade umbrella and space for al fresco dining beneath.

The main floor boasts a large smart television, sectional couch and chaise, while the lower-level, with its walkout, serves up recreational games like mini-basketball, foosball and air hockey tables (plus another wet bar).

The interior is wide open, with high ceilings and aged oak flooring. In addition to two bathrooms on the main floor, there’s the primary bedroom with one king and one simple bed, while the lower level hosts the remaining three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is an ensuite with a double vanity, tube and rain shower.

Down at the water, guests will find a 30×32-ft. two-slip boathouse, and a 26×26-ft. contiguous dock that’s equipped with a covered gazebo, eight Muskoka chairs, and even a basketball net.

When craving some in-town exploration, vacationers can make the short jaunt into Port Carling, which sits in the heart of Muskoka Lakes. There, trendy shops and chic restaurants wait. There’s even a farmer’s market in town on Thursdays.

“This is the perfect Muskoka cottage get away!” says Maryrose Coleman of Muskoka District Rentals and Halloran & Associates, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada.

“Located just minutes from Port Carling by car or boat, this recently-built cottage has a killer sun-filled dock, lots of included waters toys, and shallow sandy water access for the little ones. In winter, there are tons of activities including ice festivals, skating and sledding, private dog sled and ice fishing tours, and a fire to cozy up to and keep warm as you watch the sunset over the lake. An entertainer’s paradise with a well-equipped chef’s kitchen that overlooks the lake and lower level chill lounge with wet bar, flat screen TV and a generous sectional,” Coleman says there’s something for everyone at this rental.

Concierge services are also available, alongside catering, private chef services, daily maid service, and water taxis. To amp up the experience of your stay, you can enjoy a yoga lesson on the dock, or have groceries, wine, and beer delivered to free up time to simply enjoy your vacation. If you please, cocktails can even be waiting for you on arrival.

At $5,626 for a minimum three-night stay, and boasting vacancy from the top of February, Four Seasons Lake Muskoka is a cottage like you’ve never seen before.
