Look up! Strategically placed at the top of a tree-covered hill, the view from this cottage is nothing short of breathtaking. A vigorous climb up from the waterfront, it’s no tall statement that this cottage is at the height of what nature has to offer.

This three-level cottage is canopied in pine cathedral ceilings. From the great five-sleeper loft on the upper level, the open-concept living and kitchen space on the main floor is visible. The authentic woodstove makes this living space warm and inviting and the floor-to-ceiling windows let in lots of natural light. On balmy summer days there is a nice breeze off the lake, and while there is no AC, fans help move the air along inside. Flick on the large flat-screen TV equipped with a surround sound system and enjoy 300,000 movies, 200,000 TV Shows & global live sports. The kitchen has a dishwasher and everything else you need to make meal prep as breezy as the air off the lake. Put the kids to work chopping vegetables or shucking corn on one of the four bar stools at the raised counter. Located at the back of Chutes n' Ladders is a large lounge incorporating a poker table, pinball machine and seating area with a large flat screen television to enjoy a round of poker, movie nights and togetherness.

The view from the beautiful set of Muskoka windows is the second panoramic view this cottage offers. Having both of these one of a kind views in one cottage is unheard of, thus providing guests with a nature filled cottage experience. One might feel like a bird perched high above all civilization, away from the hustle and bustle of the city life; a very peaceful and relaxing feeling is offered during your stay at this treetop cottage. The two bedrooms on this level include the master with a queen-sized bed. The lower level rec room is the perfect spot for some friendly competition. Lose track of time in a couple of games of pool and ping pong, or try your hand at foosball, darts, and indoor putting. Pop open a board game and enjoy a cold drink from the bar or mini fridge. Two more bedrooms complete this level.

It’s down those hillside stairs to the waterfront where the outdoor enthusiasts can find what they really came for. You can also jump off the dock or use the swimming ladder. For the breathe-easy type, a relaxing afternoon on the deck or a lazy paddle around the lake in the canoe, paddleboat, or one of the two kayaks just might do the trick. Sit at the picnic table and enjoy a hot-off-the-grill meal from one of the barbeques or head on over to the fire pit for s’more ooey-gooey desserts. Chill in the hot tub before heading back into the cottage for a quiet night.

You can answer nature’s challenge at Chutes n’ Ladders Cottage. And if you don’t want to drop your anchor, the adjoining lakes surrounding Huntsville and Port Sydney make your boating, fishing, swimming, and exploring possibilities almost endless. So what are you waiting for? Adventure calls…take on your mountain!
