Winter is coming; if icy long lake views, stone fireplaces, and warm wooden tones sound like the surroundings you'd like to see as the season hits, this Muskoka vacation home is offering up the perfect vantage point from which to take in colder weather.

Aptly named Vantage Point, the Lake of Bays gem is meticulously maintained. Totalling four bedrooms, three bathrooms, (and a bunkie!) plus 175' of water frontage framed by natural rock, the spot is sure to serve as a proper winter wonderland for anyone looking to escape the urban centre in the next few months.

The rental starts at $700 per night, with a three-night minimum stay -- though it's likely you'll yearn to linger longer.

Featuring a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, hardwood flooring, built-in appliances, granite countertops, and an open concept design, the vacation home's main hub of kitchen, dining, and living beckons for the whole family to gather 'round and savour one another's company while dinner simmers on the stovetop.

While it's unlikely folks will want to "go jump in the lake" on a November or December afternoon, it is likely that everyone will be eager to jump into their coziest clothes and head down to the water for some seasonal sight-seeing, such as a brisk sunset, with hot chocolate or mulled wine in hand.

What's more, ample outdoor space and forested surroundings mean wintry adventures await the kiddos; their imaginations can run amuck and -- when the weather allows it --snowmen can stand on site.

Providing an indoor-outdoor gathering space, the windowed Muskoka room is the perfect place to huddle when the temperature outside is unforgiving, but fresh air is craved by all. Blankets and warm drinks are welcomed into the sun soaked room, where the feeling of nature is brought inside the warm wooded walls.

When it comes time to retire, four bedrooms and a bunkie await, offering enough sleeping space for 10 guests. Equally convenient, this paradise stands near the charming town of Baysville, which is a mere hour and 45 minute drive from Toronto. The sleepability and location combine to make this family getaway inclusive for everyone -- in-laws and newlyweds considered.

On top of all that's readily on offer, 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 have groceries, wine, and beer delivered, which will free up your time so you can simply enjoy your vacation. If you please, cocktails can even be waiting for you on arrival.

With availability as early as this coming weekend, and vacancy continuing through the autumn and winter seasons, there's no reason that booking a few nights at this stunner shouldn't be on your day's to-do list. The family will thank you, and honestly... you'll thank you, too.
