1 1/2 hour drive north of Toronto. This beautiful cottage is located on a year round road, plowed by the Township in the Winter to make driving an ease. No steep hills or dangerous curves. Parking for 3 cars.
Situated in quiet Barefoot Bay on picturesque Six Mile Lake. This delightfully decorated cottage has much character and exudes warmth and old country charm. Knotty pine throughout, and cathedral ceilings. The kitchen is well equipped for all those great cooks! A large center island with granite counters and muskoka stone facing provides extra space for entertaining or light snacks! A B/I maytag oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, bar fridge and freezer, central vac, complete the kitchen. A 2 piece washroom is also located on the main floor for your convenience. A large rear entry to the cottage with ample space for coats and boots, plus a laundry area with washer/dryer and sink is certainly a handy feature. The ground level also includes a guest/3rd bedroom perfect for family members who do not want to tackle stairs. A sunroom/kids 2nd TV room/game room also features a pull out futon.
Relaxing in the living room you can enjoy natural sunlight all day long (southwest exposure) with panoramic views of the lake and pretty creek which runs parallel to the cottage. The living room is equipped with surround sound, satellite flat screen 46' tv, stereo and plenty of movies for the kids plus some interesting furniture pieces, not to mention many magazines and games.
The huge master bedroom is located on the second floor with beautiful views, cathedral ceiling and dormer. The second bedroom is situated beside the master with 2 twin beds. A spacious 4 piece washroom with separate shower stall and oversized tub is located on the second floor. The second floor overlooks the living and dining area from above.
The lot is level with a sandy beach for small children. Sun all day. Take the paddle boat for a ride around the quiet bay (must be accompanied by an adult with life jackets) - no heavy boat traffic here. A large dock is located beside the beach - OR just simply catch that big fish off the dock. A hammock at the waters edge for that afternoon nap. The screened in porch is ideal for bug season and lower tiered deck offers ample space for entertaining or just enjoying the views - The deck features a patio set for 6 chairs, 4 custom wooden muskoka chairs and of course the deck would not be complete without the swinging bench. The kids will also enjoy the trampoline to the rear of the cottage - (for kids use only please).
The property has 268 ' of water frontage. 1.7 acres of mature forest, towering white pines and plenty of muskoka rock. A fire pit is located at the waters edge perfect for evening roasting of the marshmallows.
2 outdoor lighting systems - one to light the 2 tiered deck; the other to light the path down to the lake and fire pit area will extend your enjoyment into the evening.
A short walk to basketball courts and tennis courts is just down the road.
The lake offers plenty to do - from visiting the 2 local marinas for sundries, bait, movie rentals and of course ice cream for the kids. . A public boat launch is located across the lake. Six Mile Lake Marina rent boats.
Six Mile Lake is by far one of the prettiest lakes in Muskoka - dotted with islands and white pines as far as the eye can see. Plenty of rocks in the water so watch when you are maneuvering a boat - although they are marked with buoys. The Six Mile Provincial Park is also located at the south end of the lake. Pretty Channel offers a scenic waterfall which if you are adventurous you can ride down on your bottoms - a favorite amongst the locals. Enjoy outstanding boating upon pristine and very scenic waters.
The stream that runs along side the cottage enters from the marsh at the rear of the property - once a large blue heron nesting area. The bay often features white lily pads. We maintain a natural shoreline so you often see Canada geese, loons, herons, small fish, crayfish, frogs and painted turtles.
35 min drive to ski hills Moonstone and Horseshoe Valley!

I have been renting cottages for many years and this is defintely one of the best. The cottage is beautiful, with a rustic but modern feel. Very secluded and private. Cottage was very clean and had all the ammenities needed. Very spacious, with high ceilings and lots of natural light and an amazing few of the lake. The owner of the cottage Jim was very helpful and answered any questions or concerns we had. Would defintley recommend this cottage to any one.
