Making your way down the steps to this cottage, you will feel transported, as if you have walked back in time into a 1920s “Olde Muskoka” cottage. This is how cottaging used to be. Unlined walls, open ceilings, and wood floors where you could keep your shoes on. A cottage sitting so close to the water’s edge, sometimes you wonder “could I jump and make it to the water?”. The main feature however, is the magnificent floor to ceiling stone fireplace; some of the stones having come from the actual property itself. This is the one to bring your kids to; to get them to forget theirs phones; abandon the wifi; and learn what cottage life – what life anywhere – is really supposed to be like. A place for connection; for being present. Or, you can renovate it and enjoy all of the many new features that everyone now wants – it’s up to you. But this property is well worth a look one way or another. Large single slip dock at the 200′ natural shoreline. Easy access directly off Highway 169 and close to Bala and all it has to offer.
