Luxury Dwight Cottage Offers Privacy on Lake of Bays
By Kim Kerr-Dearsley
Located just a short drive from the community of Dwight along picturesque Port Cunnington Road, this new listing on lovely Lake of Bays should definitely be added to your list of ‘must-view’ Muskoka cottages for sale.
Boasting an impressive 670ft of shoreline with a sought-after south exposure, this luxury Dwight cottage sits on a 1½-acre parcel of prime Muskoka real estate would make for the perfect family summer cottage or year-round residence. While its clear, weed-free and shallow entry into the lake are perfect for children and those who prefer to wade gently into deeper waters, there’s plenty of depth off the property’s large dock for diving and jumping.
A key selling point of this luxury waterfront cottage is its large double boathouse. In addition to providing storage for boats, jet skis, canoes, and kayaks, this newly renovated space is equipped with two boatlifts. The building’s large flat rooftop deck also offers a high degree of privacy, spectacular sunset views, and plenty of space for entertaining… or relaxing.
Enjoy the Great Indoors
Recently redecorated, this 2,134sq ft luxury Muskoka cottage offers a bright and well-designed interior with quality finishes throughout. Notable features of the main living area include huge two-storey windows with fantastic lake views, plus an equally tall Muskoka stone wood burning fireplace. The spacious great room, where you’ll find ample space in which to entertain guests, is also a great spot to simply kick back and relax.
This lovely luxury Dwight cottage for sale comes with a total of five good-sized bedrooms, with the largest, the master bedroom, being located on the main floor. An added level of sophistication comes from the bedroom’s private walkout to the cottage’s large deck. All told, there are five bathrooms, ensuring line-ups and long waits are never a problem when it’s time to get ready for the day (or night, for that matter). The fully finished walk-out basement also comes with plenty of additional living space.
Other notable features of this exquisite Lake of Bays luxury cottage include:
- Traditional wood-finished Muskoka Room
- Lower-level in-floor hot water heating
- Propane heating / air conditioning, and a generator
- Fully finished basement with its own private entrance
- Granite steps to lake, with outdoor seating areas
- Hot tub
- Real wood siding and cedar-coloured asphalt shingle roof
The Best Location in Muskoka
Another key selling point is the cottage’s proximity to key amenities, things to do, and attractions in Huntsville and Lake of Bays. Downtown Huntsville, with its hospital, theater, and great shopping, is an easy 20-minute drive, while Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Resort is 15 minutes away and provides the perfect excuse to make your family cottage a year-round destination. And with some of the best Ontario snowmobile trails right on your doorstep, you’d do well to add a couple of sleds to the collection of vehicles stored in the property’s huge three-car garage.
Other nearby highlights include some of the best Muskoka golf courses, including Deerhurst Resort’s Highlands course, and the award-winning Bigwin Island Golf Club, just a short boat ride away (be sure to check out their many membership options). The quaint community of Baysville, too, can also be accessed by boat, and is a popular destination for its festivals and the popular Lake of Bays Brewery.
