This amazing family cottage is located on a sensational waterfront property on Lake Muskoka – a hidden treasure!

Bala Bay Hideaway is located just 2 hours north of Toronto, on Lake Muskoka.  With easy access from the highway and conveniently situated near the town of Bala, you can enjoy shopping, dining, the farmers market, and don’t miss the weekly ski show on Tuesday nights!

The Property

Follow the winding drive down through the woods to the parking area which leads you to granite steps down to the stone patio out back of this lovely and enchanting cottage.  Lots of space for the kids to run and play!

Lakeside, a brand-new front deck was just built offering a stunning view of the bay and a few steps down to the inviting stone patio – perfect for campfires under the stars!  The path meanders further down to the lake, where you find the boathouse and sun-kissed dock:  shallow water by the shore (perfect for the little ones), and deep-water swimming off the swim platform.

With 200 feet of picturesque lakefront, the property boasts sweeping views of Bala Bay. Explore the lake and bays by canoe or SUP, or just relax in the Muskoka chairs as you take in the magnificent panoramic view.

The Cottage

This bright and cheerful cottage, with 3 bedrooms and 1 bath, has been lovingly remodeled with both modern vibrant design and smart functional style – welcome to the Muskoka lifestyle!

The crisp white kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances, including a dishwasher and wine fridge!  The smart island provides an excellent food prep station, and a great place for the kids to have a quick breakfast before heading out to play.  There’s even a super convenient stacked washer/dryer for the times you need to throw in a quick load!  The stone patio just outside the back kitchen door features a propane barbecue for grilling.

The dining area boasts a warm pine harvest table with seating for a family of 6.  With an open concept, the kitchen and dining areas open up into the charming living room/family room which features the original stone fireplace.  Cozy up on the sofa and over-stuffed chairs for family time with a movie and popcorn!  Grab a DVD in town or hook up to Apple TV/Netflix with the available Wifi.

Beautiful French doors open into the original Muskoka Room that has been transformed and stretches across the front of the cottage, offering beautiful views of the lake.  This porch is another great space to relax, dine al fresco, play some games, or do a puzzle!  Walk out to the front lakeside deck.

The master bedroom features a luxurious King bed and lake view, while the second bedroom with a Queen bed looks out to the woods.  The third bedroom boasts a Single/Double bunk along with a TV/DVD player – perfect for the kids!  A spotless 4pc bathroom, with shower and tub, rounds out the floorplan.
