This property property sits alone on 900 ft of shoreline and 10 acres in one of the most desirable areas in Muskoka. You will have oodles of privacy with no visible neighbours in this 1800 sq ft boathouse in your own private cove.
This is a unique building. A modern renovation to this old Muskoka style boathouse with mid-century modern touches makes this an interesting space. The best interior feature is the huge open living space with 16ft cathedral ceilings overlooking water all around. The best exterior feature is the completely private, panoramic view of Lake Muskoka with no visible neighbours in front of one of the widest sections of the lake. You will have 6 different outdoor seating areas including covered or uncovered with multiple outdoor dining options. You will have two big docks that flank each side of your private cove and 3 boat slips if you need them.
Other things to note
The boathouse is located on Tondern Island, home to Millionaires Row and Beaumaris Private Yacht and Golf Club. You will drive onto the island and park up to 2 cars in reserved spots the the Yacht Club and then hop into 2 golf carts to transport you across the golf course and through a gravel path through the woods to Sherwood. A quirky way to get to a cottage but it is sure to mesmerize you once you arrive to your own private paradise. If you prefer you can take a water taxi from the Beaumaris Marina if prearranged. Honestly, we have never met a crew of guests that could not fit themselves and all their gear on the carts. Each cart is equipped for carrying luggage and groceries.
A standard, very sacred, rule for all cottages: do not flush anything down the toilet other than toilet paper. We are on a septic system, like all cottages, and the pump will clog and fail if you do not follow this rule.
No guests, other than the ones approved at booking, are allowed at the cottage without advance notice. Maximum of 6 overnight guests is optimal and we can sleep extra guests for a night or two but please communicate with us in advance. There is no lack of space or beds but there is only one bathroom, which can be limiting after a night or two.
Our local team, carpenter/maintenance person and the cleaning person/greeter will be in the area during your stay and may drop in to see if all is well and if you need anything for your stay.
Nobody without a driver's license is allowed to drive the golf cart. Adults must accompany drivers under 18 through the woods and across the golf course. No drinking alcohol on the golf cart or anywhere on the golf course or in the woods beyond the property.
Please refill the golf cart before you leave. The marina has a cart-friendly fill up nozzel.
Please do not drive carts on the golf course other than on the designated cottager path.
Sorry but you cannot golf on the private Beaumaris Golf Course. This is strictly enforced by BYC.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2018 the minimum stay is 7 nights.

I am a Toronto professional in the Architectural and Renovation field but my husband and I are working on becoming nomads. Our Toronto home and our Muskoka cottage remain our pride and joy but our favourite thing to do is see the world, hopefully by bike or on foot, but always staying at an airbnb. We love the surprise of interesting homes in amazing locations and in that spirit we offer ours to you.
