When it comes to the perfect blend of the idyllic Muskoka cottage experience with modern enjoyment, Idylwood effortlessly offers both.
Situated on five private acres overlooking Stephen’s Bay, the seven-bedroom, seven-bath cottage is a roomy 8,700 square feet. Idylwood is aptly named, for its unique granite and reclaimed-wood cladding inside and out, giving just the right rustic touch to a clean, transparent silhouette.
Almost fully glazed on each of its levels, the cottage offers stunning west-facing views over long miles of woods and water. On the main level, with walls and ceiling clad throughout in beautiful reclaimed wood, rooms are suggested rather than enclosed, by classic exposed post-and-beam construction that imparts a warm and welcoming feeling.
No less than five wood burning fireplaces add extra coziness on cool evenings. The classic Muskoka room is screened on three sides and features its own big fireplace, clad in local granite; the plank floor and picnic style dining table recalls great Muskoka cottages of history.
On the lower level, accessed by a stunning wood-and-steel staircase that is an architectural masterpiece in its own right, there’s a fully fitted gym, large family room and games room.
Guest rooms on both levels are private and each offer their own unique views, and most have private ensuites. A walkout leads to an outdoor hot tub sheltered under a woodclad ceiling, with a view of the lake through the woods – unbeatable for watching the sun go down after a long summer day.
On days when the rain keeps you and your guests indoors – or just when you feel like putting your feet up and enjoying a good flick – Idylwood offers cinema in style, with a fully soundproofed home theatre room, with surround sound and big screen TV.
A few steps down the hill is the boathouse, big enough to house two boats and with room for entertaining. The wide dock is great for swimming in water deep enough for diving; the upper level wraparound deck allows for dining on a breezy day, or relaxing with a drink, long after the sun sets and gives way to a star spangled night.
If you long for an idyllic Muskoka experience, but with all the comforts of modern design for living, Idylwood offers both, in one stunning and secluded hideaway
