Rustic yet elegant, and beautifully appointed, Pine Cottage offers a quiet, sunny getaway in the heart of Muskoka. Located on Lake Menominee, the south-facing shoreline enjoys all-day sunshine. A large glass-railed deck overlooks the waterfront, while just a few steps take you down to the shallow, sandy beach area and 40 foot dock. It?s perfect for families, and especially well-suited for young children, as there is very shallow water for a considerable distance off the beach.
The entire cottage is newly renovated, with wide-plank pine floors, and tongue and groove paneling throughout. It has a total living space of 1700 sq ft. The bathrooms are trimmed in bead board, with new hardware and fittings. The interior is a modern take on the traditional Muskoka family cottage.
Perhaps the best feature of Pine Cottage is its unusual proximity to the waterfront. You are never more than just a few steps from the lake, and a shoreline that varies from large granite boulders to sandy beach. The entry is firm sand giving way to a softer lake bed, with some visible rocks. The water is shallow, and therefore unusually warm for a Muskoka lake. You can walk in from the shore, or step off the dock to swim out to the cedar diving platform.
The large deck area at the end of the dock is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the sheltered bay, and the cottage and shoreline face south for maximum sunshine during the day.
Water toys include a 16 foot Langford canoe, double open-top kayak, Pelican paddle boat, and for sailors a Laser with new canvas.
For day trips and shopping, the village of Baysville is 8 kilometers away. Baysville offers a charming cafe called Nellies, which doubles as an antique shop. There are two general stores, a bakery and an LCBO outlet, plus pathways along the dam across the Muskoka River.
The town of Huntsville is 15 kilometers away, and has every amenity you could want, from a multiplex theater, to the bustling main street full of shops and restaurants. It?s a 12 minute drive. There are numerous golf courses, hiking and snowmobile trails very nearby.
Lake Menominee is a medium sized lake with no public access, so boat traffic is minimal, and the views are uninterrupted. It?s also cleaner and quieter than many of the larger, more highly- populated lakes. Pine Cottage is situated in a quiet bay at the northern end of the lake, facing south by southwest.
