Property and Unique features of Langmaid’s Island
Langmaid’s Island is the largest remaining privately owned undeveloped island in Muskoka
* 140 acres
* 2 natural sandy beaches with southern exposure
* 5 kilometers of shoreline
* granite jumping rocks
The sheer size, beauty and privacy offered by Langmaid’s Island is breathtaking. Langmaid’s is an island property on Lake of Bays in the District of Muskoka, Ontario that has been owned by the same family since the late 1800’s. This island has been cared for and preserved in its natural state with honour and respect for the stewardship of the land. With 140 acres and almost 5 kilometres of shoreline this property is unlike any other that has recently been offered for sale and will surely be
the last of its kind.
Langmaid’s Island is located off the mainland just north of the town of Baysville on Lake of Bays. Three large hills reach to an elevation of 50 metre above the water and give an unparalleled opportunity for 360 degree views around the lake. A forest of hemlock, white pine and cedar trees populate the undeveloped rocky shoreline and a small marshland occupies a small protected bay along the northern shore at the narrowest point of the island. But perhaps the most spectacular features of Langmaid’s Island are the two natural sandy beaches that stretch along the southern shoreline. These beaches are a rare feature in a cottage country property in Muskoka. A smooth shelving of pink granite rock highlights the southern edge with large jumping rocks adding to the mix. A small, rocky, picturesque island called Pancake or Seagull island is offered as well as part of the package being offered for sale. Pancake Island gives the owners of Langmaid’s an opportunity to enjoy private picnics and have a charming destination for afternoon paddles.
Getting to Langmaid’s Island from the mainland will be easy because of the land available at 3933 South Portage Road. This vacant .54 acre plot of land has 200 feet of lake frontage and will be the perfect spot for a private access point to the island. The entire package offered for sale consists of Langmaid’s Island, Pancake Island and the mainland lot.
Lake of Bays: A land of beauty
