Nestled amongst tall trees in the heart of Muskoka, 213 Kilty Bay Road has everything you might need and want from a vacation home.
The property — aptly named Kilty Kottage — sits on a 1.4-acre lot with over 200 feet of sunny, southwestern exposure. It’s just steps away from the pristine and gently rippling waters of Stewart Lake.
The outdoor space alone begs for long and lazy summer days spent with family and friends, lounging by the lake and taking in the sights of Ontario’s cottage country crown jewel.
Even so, the property is meant to be used all year round, and that’s clear from the moment you step into the home itself.
On the main floor, you’re greeted by a bright, homey, and spacious great room comprised of the living and dining areas.
Maryrose Coleman — the listing agent for Kilty Kottage — draws attention to the masonry fireplace, which is the focal point of the space and extends 27 feet from floor to ceiling, lending the room a sense of coziness. Enormous windows frame the fire feature and ensure that, even on the chilliest of days, you’re treated to picturesque lake views and plenty of natural light. The entire space benefits from warm wood accents and soaring, vaulted ceilings.
“A ‘Muskoka room’ is adjacent to the great room, and there is a further gathering area in the lower level with a walkout to the lake,” Coleman also notes.
Also on the main level is an eat-in kitchen that overlooks the lake and touts finishes and fixtures that lean rustic, including earth-toned tiling on the floor and backsplash, as well as two of the home’s five bedrooms. One of these is the primary, which has an ensuite and boasts walk-out access to the lakeside deck.
The upper level includes two more bedrooms, as well as a home office for those WFC (work from cottage) type of days. The remaining bedroom is located on the finished lower level.
The home also benefits from an expansive, sun-soaked wrap-around deck and an adjoining dining gazebo.
All things considered, Coleman calls Kilty Kottage the perfect lakefront cottage — one that can stay in the family for generations to come.
“There’s lots of room for family to gather and enjoy the lake,” she says. “The property is also an established rental franchise, which could help the future homeowners to offset any expenses.”
Our Favourite Thing
We love how versatile this property stands to be all year long. In the summer, the lakeside location suits everything from water sports to boating to swimming. In the wintertime, family and friends can cozy up next to that enormous fire feature. In short, you won’t need a rhyme or reason to spend a week (or a few weeks) in this inviting family abode.
Waterfront properties in Muskoka are in limited supply, so 213 Kilty Bay Road is something of a rare opportunity to own a piece of lakeside cottage country.
