This recently built cottage and bunkie is on a beautiful section of popular Horseshoe Lake near Parry Sound. With lofty views and well thought out accommodation, it is a great choice for a family getaway. The cottage sits quite high off the lake and blends naturally into the Canadian Shield. Natural log and rock stairs lead you down to the shoreline and dock.
The owners of Hagley's Ridge have thought about their guests every step of the way through the construction of this great cottage. They knew you wanted fabulous views while dining; that the cottage chef also wanted to see out of the window when cooking; and that you were planning on spending many evenings playing cards in the screened Muskoka room. Then they made sure all five bedrooms were equipped with top quality mattresses; that there were comfortable seating areas, and that there were separate areas for different groups to enjoy different activities. The final result is a terrific cottage for multi-generation families, or two families holidaying together. On the main floor, the open plan kitchen, dining and living area all face the waterfront so the views are terrific from every window. A walkout brings you onto the deck wrapping around the waterfront side of the property for catching even better views. Inside again, a wood burning stove provides warmth for cooler autumn evenings, while the screened sunroom offers a great place to spend the end of a summer's day, relaxing with family and friends. Three bedrooms are on this floor; two with queens and one with a double, with a bathroom to share between them. The lower floor has a large family room, laundry, second bathroom and two more bedrooms, each with bunk beds, which will be a hit with the kids. There’s a queen futon sofa and futon chair for added flexibility of accommodation. Enjoy an evening of movies on the 50” projection TV or a game of pool, by the wood burning stove. Just outside the walkout is a hammock and two air chairs to take in the picture perfect view. There is also hi-speed internet access; ipod docking stations; and laundry facilities. For teenagers who want a little privacy there's also a bunkie that sleeps two people. The cottage sits quite high off the lake and blends naturally into the Canadian Shield. Natural log and rock stairs lead you down to the shoreline and dock which has a new 16x16’ addition and where the delights of Horseshoe Lake await. The shoreline is shallow and sandy for about six foot out and then drops off to deeper water which makes it perfect for practicing diving skills. A rowboat and canoe are included and boat rentals are available from the Horseshoe Lake Marina.
