Awesome lake view!!!
This is our first visit to Sheldon’s Cottage. We like it so much that we just booked again for later in the year, and we haven’t even left for home yet!! It’s one of the most ‘home from home’ cottages that we have ever stayed in. It’s spotlessly clean, well maintained and well equipped. Everything that we need for a great holiday is provided. It is the perfect cozy, quiet, romantic retreat. The cottage is in a beautiful location with stunning lake view from both the living and dining areas with countless Instagram-worthy spots. It is flat to the water with a small beach area, very easy to launch the kayaks and canoe which are provided by the owner. It is super family and kids friendly. Sheldon, the owners of the cottage is responsive and very accommodating and goes above and beyond to please.
Amazing place - just like the photos - Book it now!
We had an incredibly amazing vacation at this cottage on Lake of Bays! The owner was very responsive to all my questions, which was perfect as I was on a tight schedule with lots of business travel just before the vacation. The place is very clean, the great room is really great, the kitchen has everything you could ever want, and the access to the lake is perfect! There is a sandy level shallow area for entry/exit (very rare in Muskoka) without weeds, perfect for swimming and canoe/kayak entry and exit. You have access to quite a few bays from this place, via kayak, or canoe, or to lounge on the boogie boards, or by paddle boat! The cottage is newly finished, beautiful, high end, close to Algonquin Park (35 min) and to Dorset and Baysville. Pick up a coupon at the park west gate entrance for a scenic boat tour (S.S. Bigwin) from Dorset, and be sure to visit Yummies (the smoked trout and peach jam were great)! Very clean, amazing dock, incredible views. You can relax on the dock listening to the sound of lapping water, just reading if you want! Bedrooms are small but very comfortable, a perfect use of space in a cottage - the open concept for living/dining/kitchen was great! Laundry is very conveniently in the cottage (washer and dryer). Highly recommend you book this one! Would be especially perfect for those with little ones too.
Wonderful waterfront cottage on Lake of Bays
Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at Jo Lee Point cottage. The owner Sheldon was very gracious and highly responsive to our questions. The cottage living room and kitchen area provided lots of open room with stunning views of the Lake of Bays. We all loved access to the kayaks, canoe, paddle boat and life jackets so we could explore the many Bays and islands. The kids especially loved their water expeditions to Seagull Island which is an easy 5 minute paddle. The lake water is very clean and crystal clear and we had many wonderful family moments on the dock. Thank you very Sheldon for sharing your gorgeous Muskoka retreat with us!
On the Southwest side Lake of Bays, between Baysville to the south and Dwight to the north. About a 20 minute drive to Huntsville, Bracebridge or Dorset. World class golf nearby at Bigwin Island, Grandview, North Granite Ridge and Deerhurst Highlands.
One large canoe, two beginner-friendly sit-in kayak, one kid sit on kayak and one paddle boat.
