You will never stay at another place like this one. Constructed from a large barn - the place has many of the original wooden features inside still intact. The hot tub, fire-pit, deck overlooking Lake Joseph, large slab rock swim dock on Lake Joe, the view from the cottage, full size pool table, sand volleyball court and inside open stone fireplace make this an amazing location for a getaway, retreat or for entertaining.

The space
The Barn is great place for families and groups who are looking to share an amazing experience together and still have lots of space to spread out for some quiet time and activities. It includes: a large Muskoka Room centered around an open hearth fire; a separate living room with comfy couches overlooking the lake; a standard size snooker table to socialize around; a large kitchen ideal for sharing in the making of food; a sand volleyball court outside; a large dock on Lake Joseph; a deck with outdoor dining table overlooking the lake; a large hot tub and fire pit also overlooking the lake as well as many small reading nooks and other spaces to be discovered. New in summer 2021, we are adding a 8’x20’ dock attached to the existing dock to allow guests to dock boats right at the dock. Also a new swim raft will be there in the summer of 2021. No pics yet as it is not yet installed.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire inside of the cottage, the hot tub and volleyball court outside, the dock, the bbq and outdoor fire pit.

Other things to note
This cottage is in the woods and you can enjoy lots of quiet serenity in the woods - but at the same time, you are only a 5 - 10 minute drive away from restaurants, gas, grocery, liquor and other amenities.

Location

Port Carling, Ontario, Canada

The cottage is located on a very private property right on Lake Joseph. The neighbouring cottages are related families and are not within site. It is the second last cottage on the road and so very little vehicles are going by even on busy summer weekends.
