As cooler days descend, it's hard to imagine anything more quaint than sipping a coffee while draped in a flannel, overlooking a beautiful view.
And thanks to vacancy at La Belle Vue, that's a vision you can make a reality.
Completely renovated just this year, the four-season Muskoka family getaway has availability as early as this month, all the way through to next summer. Sitting just outside the town of Bala, the escape feels remote, but still provides the benefits of being close to shops and eateries.
Boasting south-west orientation, the lake house comes complete with all-day sun... Which means your dreams of autumn sunsets by the fire are well within reach.
While days are still warm in early September, there's still time to savour soaks in Long Lake; a shallow-water entry offers opportunities for wading in, while a 3.5' drop at the end of the dock means cannonballs are on the menu, too.
And with its proximity to town, a long stay here lends itself to equal relaxation and exploration. Bala Falls is breathtaking, and you'll be able to spend full days savouring views, taking nature walks, venturing through trails, and fuelling up at local eateries.
Back at the lake house, meanwhile, a large deck overlooking the water serves as an outdoor dining setting, complete with a BBQ and easy access to the designer kitchen inside. On chilly nights, the lower-level living room invite you to get cozy, as a propane fireplace serves as the space's focal point.
From TV to board games, there's much to do any time it rains, while four bedrooms and two baths (including a separate bunkie) mean visiting friends can stay the night, if they wish.
What's more, concierge services are 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, rent a boat or trampoline, 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.
Priced at $4,407 for a minimum three-night stay, the abode sleeps 10 across its 2,800 sq. ft. of space. And if you've been wracking your brain for a way to celebrate the coming autumn equinox, this place looks like your ideal setting.
If La Belle Vue is speaking to you, don't hesitate to book your stay. This spot's availability won't last long.
