Cottage
This year round waterfront 3 bedroom family cottage has a great view which opens up onto your beautiful private beach on Oxtongue lake. With a big dock you can jump off, or ease down the gentle slope into the water from the sandy beach, its ideal for children. Take in the sunrise in the screened in Muskolka sun room, and fish off the dock! or explore the lake in a canoe, kayak or paddleboat (provided). In the winter it is great to cosy up by the woodstove, cross country ski, or snowshoe (4 new pairs available for rental from owners). With a great location- 20 min from Huntsville, and right at the entrance of Algonquin park, you get the best of both worlds. Note: linens are now Provided! except beach towels) We also leave salt/pepper, sugar, tea and filters for the coffee maker. ...This year round waterfront 3 bedroom family cottage has a great view which opens up onto your beautiful private beach on Oxtongue lake.
