Summer's on its way out, but that doesn't mean vacation season has to come to an end.

In fact, late summer and early fall may be the most ideal times to go on a getaway: The days are still hot but the evenings are comfortably cool, bass fishing is at its best, and switching from white to (the preferred) red wine feels organic, not forced.

Lucky for those who are keen on embracing this magical time of year, a pristine rental dubbed Cloud Nine -- tucked into a private peninsula at the end of Eileen Gowan Island -- is boasting vacancy in August and September.

Located on Lake Muskoka just outside of Bracebridge, the main build + boathouse setup sleeps 13, presenting a perfect place to gather with family and friends as autumn descends.

Precious and private, Cloud Nine is hugged by the lakes and rivers that surround Bracebridge, which means water sports, deck relaxation, fishing, and swimming are all for the taking when you're visiting the rental.

In fact, the boat-access-only cottage is completely surrounded by water, offering some of the most spectacular views of Lake Muskoka from both indoors and out. And, as the build stands on the island's shallow peninsula, the cottage is separated from the rest of the main island, making it feel ultra-exclusive.

Across the property, kids and adults alike will savour time spent on the beach, around the firepit, and soaking up sun on the dock. Included in the rental are a Weber BBQ, kayaks, and a trampoline outside, while the indoor experience offers "excellent" internet access, plus satellite TV.

On site are two structures: A main build and a boathouse. The main building is complete with 2 bedrooms -- with multiple beds available -- and 2 bathrooms, while the boathouse provides an additional 2 bedrooms, one of which is fixed with bunk beds.

In the surrounding area, you'll have opportunity to explore Pride Marina, Beaumaris, and Port Carling, where attractions and eats can be savoured.

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 $8,825.22 for a 7-night minimum stay, the rental looks like the ideal place to close out summer or celebrate the beginning of the fall season.

If you're keen on visiting Cloud Nine, don't hesitate to book, because this property's vacancies won't last long.
