Enjoy your Muskoka River view from your bright and airy one bedroom, one bath cottage or walk down to the dock and watch the sunset from your Muskoka chairs. Dive into the deep water to cool down and have a relaxing swim on a hot sunny day. Take the kayak out for a paddle. Pamper yourself by calling Bellus Mobile Spa and they will come right to the cottage to give you a relaxing message, manicure or pedicure to enhance your vacation. Rent a boat at a marina and cruise the Muskoka Lakes.

The bathroom includes a pedestal sink, toilet, walk-in rain shower, soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair drier a double dresser and a portable electric heater.

The WI-FI in the cottage comes from a copper based DSL and runs at 10 mbps download and 925 kbps upload speeds. It will probably seem slower than your internet at home. Outside you will find a 6 burner propane barbeque with grilling tools, large picnic table, a portable fire pit, Muskoka chairs and a hammock to relax in. Guests staying at least two weeks will receive fresh bedding, bathroom towels and tea towels weekly.
The cottage is located on the same property and in close proximity to the owners permanent residence. Guests will have private cottage access and shared access to the docks and entire 205 feet of shoreline for swimming, kayaking, wind surfing, fishing, etc. You should be aware that we have a few friends who keep their boats at our docks and that they may drop by periodically to access them. If you don't want to see other people during your vacation and total shoreline privacy is critical this location may not be your cup of tea.
Interaction with guests
The owners will normally be available on site to answer any questions, make restaurant/shopping suggestions and perform any required maintenance. We try to give our guests as much privacy as we possibly can.

We have a 2 person kayak and all the required safety equipment available for our guests to use. We also have two 21 speed bicycles for our guests to enjoy on the relatively flat terrain around the Bracebridge and Gravenhurst area.
