Location: Bird Lake, Near Bracebridge, Ontario

Welcome to the warmest lake in the Muskokas with an average summer water temperature of 24C degrees. If you like swimming or just dipping your toes in the water, this lake is for you.

The open concept living room/dining/kitchen area is bright and airy with tall ceilings and a Muskoka fireplace. The living-room seats six comfortably. The cottage offers satellite TV, DVD and Blu-Ray. Better yet, while away the evening hours with games and puzzles while enjoying the view.

The kitchen area is fully-equipped with a new stainless fridge & stove, as well as a microwave and all tools you’ll need to prepare a scrumptious meal. The kitchen table seats six with the leaf expansion.

There are three bedrooms. The master has a king-size bed. The second bedroom has a double bed and the third bedroom has a bunk bed with double on top and queen on the bottom.  The cottage has one three-piece bathroom.

A new generator has been installed for those occasions when there is a power outage.

Set on a large lot with lots of trees for privacy, the cottage is elevated from the waterfront with twenty-three short steps to a lovely dock and sandy water area. The waterfront offers 180 feet of frontage with a sandy, then grassy approach.  A new sun deck has been added to the dock area.

Enjoy your days on the 30-foot dock or take a leisurely voyage on the lake in the rowboat, canoe or kayak. The cottage has a southeastern exposure and all afternoon sun. Lounge at the patio table with umbrella and six chairs on the sixteen foot deck. Complete your perfect Muskoka day by the firepit at the front of the cottage while listening to the loons in their natural habitat.
