Lake Muskoka, Bracebridge, Canada
Muskoka is Ontario’s Favorite Year-Round Vacation Destination. 2,500 square miles of towering pines, sparkling lakes and rivers, endless recreational activities!
Located on the south west side of Browning Island, Lake Muskoka (just east of Cariquette Island) this "boat access only" private, newly built cottage (completed in June of 2009) features an open concept design, flooring ceiling windows, a stunning lake one-mile long view to the and 160' of private treed and sunny shoreline.
Enjoy stunning sunset views from three separate sitting areas, a private deck in front of the cottage, a second deck just above the water and a third deck on the water and connected to the new 40’ foot private dock. Excellent swimming with both shallow and deep water and granite steps into the lake. The cottage also has west exposure which provides for a sunny shoreline and decks from 10:00 am to sunset. A typical day-long breeze from the open waters to the west make this location virtually bug-free during daylight hours.
The cottage features an open concept design with a great room, floor to ceiling windows on the lake side, water-views on three sides from the sunroom, custom kitchen with granite countertops, hardwood and slate flooring, 20 foot ceilings, ceiling fans in each room, 2 fireplaces (one wood burning, the other propane), 2 bathrooms (one with whirlpool), 4 queen beds, 52 inch plasma TV with DVD, satellite TV, high speed internet, 2 large decks and multiple sitting areas by the water.
The waterway is quiet both on weekends and during the week as the only traffic is from one of your island neighbours. This cottage provides the true "on the water" Muskoka experience since you can only access the property by boat.

Peaceful and Relaxing
Our stay in Muskoka was lovely. The cottage was beautiful. Jon was a generous host and went out of his way to help us arrive. The views were spectacular and we took many sunset pictures. The weather did not cooperate all week, but we did manage to relax by the water. I would highly recommend renting a boat, as it is water access only. This is an exceptionally beautiful part of cottage country and highly sought after. ”
Jon was a fabulous host. Very thorough and helpful in every aspect. Would highly recommend him and the property, which is immaculately maintained. ”
Lake Muskoka Island living
My friends and I just returned from a week living on Browning Island in the middle of Lake Muskoka north of Toronto. The house was perfect, the weather was perfect, and the lake was still warm enough to swim in and enjoy. Jon, the owner, was incredibly helpful in planning the adventure and hooked us up with a local marina and a pontoon boat rental for the week. The house faced west making for a beautiful sunsets each night . We grilled out most nights and visited the many small towns located on the lake including 2 local breweries, farmers markets, and the Bala cranberry farm and winery. All in all it made for a really relaxing vacation in one of the best locations in all of Canada. ”

The home was very large and nicely laid out. It was a beautiful home with great views of the lake. The proximity from the boat rental to the house were very convenient. The townships surrounding the lake had great places to eat and shop, grocery shop. The area was very friendly. We especially enjoyed nights by the fire pit and view of the stars at night. It is a great spot and very relaxing. The house had a lot of amenities and the TV"s were more than adequate. We will definitely go back.”
