The warmth and charm of this beautiful private lakefront cottage exudes throughout this little piece of heaven.
Stepping into the large foyer, the lovely terrazzo floor tile is a warm welcome to the start of any vacation. The expansive and bright open concept kitchen is a cook’s dream providing all of the amenities of home while the family gathers around the large dining table.
Wall to wall windows along the front of the cottage with a southwest exposure supplies an endless panoramic view of beautiful Otter Lake. The floor to ceiling fireplace in the large living room with seating for eight, is an inviting spot for a good old fashion evening of family chats or perhaps engage in a board game or two.
The five generous sized bedrooms are cheerfully decorated with modern decor. The master bedroom with a king-sized bed has a convenient 2 piece ensuite while the remaining two bedrooms have a queen in one and a double in the other. The main floor 4 piece bathroom is nicely located between the living and bedroom areas.
On the lower level, the walk-out basement is bright and open offering a family room area with a large screen TV and a DVD player. There is also a ping pong table and a wood stove. Two other bedrooms are located off of the family room offering further sleeping quarters with a queen bed and a double bottom/single top bunk bed in one room while the 5th bedroom has a set of single beds. A three piece bathroom services the downstairs area.
Outside, enjoy the hot tub, sandy beach, dock, two kayaks, and a canoe or gather around the large fire-pit to roast marshmallows. The wrap around deck hosts a picnic table, table for two for a romantic dinner perhaps, or sit back and take in the breeze from the lake in the comfortable Muskoka chairs.
Only 10 minutes from the cottage is the Dorset Fire Tower Lookout which boasts epic views of the fall colours. Dorset Lookout Tower
