For those in the market for that distinctive old-world Muskoka charm – a throwback to a time before "cottages" became modern mansions – The Grand Lodge could be your next big splurge.
That’s not to say the classic and elegant, fully renovated lake house isn’t equipped with all the modern fixtures and amenities of luxury cottaging: it most definitely is.
Located on two pristine acres on the Isle of Skye, this timeless Lake Muskoka family compound – now on the market for a cool $3.5-million – sits just a two-minute boat ride from the mainland, and fifteen minutes to the restaurant and boutique-filled Port Carling. The Grand Lodge’s 825-feet of semi-private, multi-exposure shoreline is graced by the sun’s rays all day long. Perfect for families of all sizes, this property offers a child-friendly sandy beach and sheltered swim area. An extensive dock takes full advantage of the prime exposure.
Despite the sprawling property, this cottage reverberates with coziness, thanks to everything from three + fireplaces, a wraparound deck, and an open porch, to no shortage of wood walls and flooring throughout. The spacious main cottage has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, and there is also a guest cottage with two bedrooms and one bath, and two guest bunkies with sleeping quarters
Aside from its timeless charm and family-friendliness, a main draw of this property is location. Just two hours from Toronto, this piece of paradise sits on the tip of Mortimers Point on Lake Muskoka, with access to the Big Three Muskoka Lakes.
There is parking available for up to five cars, and docking for four plus boats at the private landing.
