Location: Lake Vernon, Huntsville, Ontario

Imagine a fun-filled outdoor and indoor cottage vacation in a gorgeous setting with floor-to-ceiling 20-foot windows and a spectacular view of the lake. Just 2 1/2 hours from the city, Blue Jay Away offers magazine-look interior design, as well as functionality -- In other words, the best of all worlds. This well-appointed chalet will also appeal to sports enthusiasts, energetic teens, and those wanting some down time.

Lake Vernon is a large north Muskoka lake, with plenty of shores and islands to explore, and plenty of wide-open water for all the water sports imaginable. Nearby Huntsville has plenty of action, stores, restaurants, pubs, and people, when a change of pace is wanted. Algonquin Park is a short drive away, and there are wilderness outfitters with canoe rentals, as well as local marinas for large boat rentals. You will want to extend your stay for several more weeks!

Blue Jay Away sports an open-concept living room, dining room, kitchen on the main floor that will inspire family togetherness with its seated gathering spots. The livingroom has three big comfy couches for lounging or for watching a movie on the flat screen TV on Blu-Ray or Bell Expressview Satellite.

Meal time will be a social event with everyone joining in the preparation or simply observing the family chef in action while seated on one of the hand-crafted log stools at the kitchen island. The kitchen is equipped with every convenience a chef would want, including dishwasher, large stainless steel fridge, gas range, coffee maker, and lots of counter space. Guests will enjoy fabulous feast at the dining table while taking in the marvellous view of the lake. The long dining table that easily seats eight will inspire get-togethers, family conversations, and good food.

There are four cozy bedrooms on the upper floor. The master bedroom has a king-size bed. The other three bedrooms have queen-size beds. There are also two sets of bunk beds in the charming bunkie by the lake.

There are two 3-piece bathrooms on the upper floor. In the lower level there is a 4-piece bathroom with an old-fashioned claw foot tub for an elegant soak.

Downstairs, there is lots to do. Teens will never get bored in the Games Room located downstairs where there are tons of games including a pool table, ping pong table, air hockey game and a foosball table for their amusement. Parents, too, can join in on the fun or sit back, relax and watch the activities while seated at the cruiser table and two stools or on the couch, love seat or at the cards table with four chairs.

The thirty-foot deck off the main floor has both sun and shade throughout day and seating for eight. Steal away and enjoy some quiet time in the twelve-by-twelve fully screened Muskoka room or in the reading room on the main floor.

Watershoes are recommended at the 110 foot shoreline with mushy gradual entry. A boat up to 21 foot can be tied up at the forty-four foot dock. There is also a 16x16 dock end piece with ladder. The dock is refreshingly shady in the morning and is basked in sunshine the rest of the day.

The ultimate ending to a fantastic day at the cottage is at the firepit where there is seating for twelve; or relax under the star-filled sky and benefit from the soothing relaxation of the great outdoors.

Blue Jay Away is a custom-built dream cottage that has been lovingly designed to create a wonderful holiday experience for the entire family.
