Enjoy your Muskoka River view from your bright and airy one bedroom, one bath cottage or walk down to the dock and watch the sunset from your Muskoka chairs. Dive into the deep water to cool down and have a relaxing swim on a hot sunny day. Take the kayak out for a paddle. Pamper yourself by calling Bellus Mobile Spa and they will come right to the cottage to give you a relaxing massage, manicure or pedicure to enhance your vacation. Bring your boat or go for a cruise on the Muskoka Lakes.

The space
This historic building is the last remaining cottage on the old Vue De Lac cottages property which was established in the 1940's. The cottage is the old Muskoka style with open vaulted ceilings and lots of windows. The bedroom contains a double bed, dresser, a closet, clock radio/alarm, a 32" LED Smart flat screen television and an electric baseboard heater. The bathroom includes a pedestal sink, toilet, walk-in rain shower, soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair drier, a double dresser and a portable electric heater. The "L" shaped main area includes the living room, kitchen and dining area overlooking the water. A large ceiling fan keeps the air moving throughout the cottage and a 10,000 BTU air conditioner is available to cool things down when required. The living room has two love seats, chair, 32" LED Smart flat screen television with Bell Expressview satellite programing, a Sony Blu-ray DVD player (discs not provided) and an electric baseboard heater . You will also have access to our Netflix account as a Guest user. The well equipped kitchen includes a 17 CU/FT refrigerator, Jenn-Air electric range with full size oven, microwave oven, toaster oven, blender, water dispensing cooler, 10 cup drip coffee maker, Keurig single serve coffee maker ( pods not provided ), crock pot, dishes, mugs, glasses, tin foil, saran wrap and utensils. You will also find extra virgin olive oil, sugar, salt & pepper, barbeque spices, coffee & tea in the fridge and kitchen area. The dining area has a maple table and 4 chairs. We also have a flashlight and bug spray in the cottage for your use. The WI-FI in the cottage comes from a copper based DSL and runs at 10 mbps download and 925 kbps upload speeds. It will probably seem slower than your internet at home. Outside you will find a 4 burner propane barbeque with grilling tools, large picnic table, a portable fire pit which includes wood, Muskoka chairs and lounge chairs with pads to relax in. Guests staying at least two weeks will receive fresh bedding, bathroom towels and tea towels weekly.

Guest access
The cottage is located on the same property and in close proximity to the owners permanent residence and the next door neighbours garage. Guests will have private cottage access and shared access to the docks and entire 205 feet of shoreline for swimming, kayaking, wind surfing, fishing, etc. You should be aware that we have a few friends who keep their boats at our docks and that they may drop by periodically to access them. If you don't want to see other people during your vacation and total shoreline privacy is critical this location may not be your cup of tea.

Other things to note
We have a 2 person kayak and all the required safety equipment available for our guests to use. We also have a men's and a women's 21 speed bicycle for our guests to enjoy on the relatively flat terrain around the Bracebridge and Gravenhurst area.

We encourage all guests to read the Activities Waiver & Release Form below, and also to seek legal advice if they choose, prior to booking.
