Welcome to Mar Vista - Cape Cod in Muskoka!
This beautiful cottage boasts wonderful pine cathedral ceilings with floor to ceiling windows to attain a fantastic view out over the lake. The pine decor and wood floors give this elegant cottage that modern cottage feel that will satisfy the most discerning taste. Enjoy countless hours out on the main deck with family and friends as you bask in the sunshine and take in the cottage life. Lounge in the new glassed-in gazebo overlooking the lake. The yard is level in front of the cottage with a set of steps leading you down from the yard to the waterfront. Here you will enjoy swimming in the crystal clear water of Walker Lake. With a southern exposure, you can enjoy sun on the dock all day long as the kids splash and play. The bottom here drops off fairly quickly and with the shoreline kept in it's natural state the best swimming is normally from the dock.
Inside, you'll find the cottage is meticulously finished and well appointed. The kitchen is spacious and open with a walkout to the deck and a breakfast table while the living room provides plenty of room to sit back and relax with a good book or watch TV. The master bedroom is in the upper level where you'll also find the room for the kids play area and sleeping quarters. Each of the bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage room for your things.
Great proximity to golf, shopping, dining and entertainment. You are 15 minutes from Huntsville and 10min drive to Deerhurst and Grandview.
Come and enjoy the quieter side of cottaging on this magnificent lake where there is a 12km/hr speed restriction to ensure that you aren't overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle sometimes found on other lakes.
We just wanted to take the time to thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful cottage. Everything was immaculate and a perfect back drop to help us relax and unwind. Walker Lake is truly a special place and "Mar Vista" will hold a dear place in our hearts.....
