Susan Brown of Chestnut Park Real Estate: Extraordinary log home on Lake of Bays

Extraordinary log home on Lake of Bays


This extraordinary log home on Lake of Bays combines the beauty of cottage living with all the modern amenities – perfect for that discerning buyer looking for the ultimate Muskoka retreat. Nestled on 2.99 acres a mere 30 minutes from Huntsville, the property features a one-of-a-kind sandy beach and over 400 feet of South West exposure, which provides a spectacular view of the sunset. The large, level lot is ideal for all ages, providing more than enough space for all of your family activities – it’s perfect for lawn bowling, family BBQ’s, and so much more.

Inside, the cottage’s bright open-concept floor plan is like something out of a magazine. The spacious kitchen with a large granite island means the whole family can have a hand in creating gourmet meals, while the dining area allows your gatherings to take any shape you wish – move the party outdoors to the deck, transition to tea in the picturesque white room, or relax by the fireplace in the living room. Just the other side of that double-sided stone fireplace, you will find a den with large windows on all sides – perfect for catching the light all day long. Pair those large windows with high ceilings throughout, and you can enjoy plenty of natural light no matter where you are.

When it’s time to turn in for the night, you’ll find the master bedroom with a four-piece ensuite on the main floor, while the family heads upstairs to the second floor to find a bathroom and the remaining two bedrooms.

When your gatherings grow larger, or when the extended family comes to visit, give your guests their own private residence in the 1200 sq.ft. fully equipped Guest House. It provides three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms alongside a kitchen, living room and sunroom – your guests won’t want to leave! Alternatively, use the space to set up the ultimate home office or private studio – working from home can be so rewarding in a space such as this.

The detached three-car garage also includes a living room with a view of the lake – turn this into your own yoga studio or artist’s retreat (or a secondary location for that home office when the Guest House is occupied).

Finally, we come to the waterfront. This one of a kind stretch along the water’s edge features a convenient – and adorable – change cabin. Not only will it save running up to the cottage to get changed for some fun on the water, it is also the perfect place to keep everything from extra towels, to water toys, to your favourite summer snacks. Head out on the water, or sit and enjoy the views from your large dock – the sunsets won’t disappoint.
