Welcome to Lake Muskoka Minnow Bay Retreat. Your adventure begins on a 2 acre lot with tall mature trees. Enjoy  North West exposure for lots of sun at the boat house on Lake Muskoka. This cottage has multiple relaxation areas, a fire pit and lots of room to romp, play and explore the natural surroundings.

Inside is the perfect setup for meals, playing games, and relaxing with everyone able to gather in either the large open concept living and kitchen area, the screen room or the recreation room in the walkout basement. There is satellite TV in both the upper and lower sitting areas. There is loads of room here for everyone.

The screen room has loads of seating and a hot tub, which is available for guests to 'self' use, instructions are available for filling, chemicals, cleaning and draining.

The shoreline is a sand bottom at the shore with easy access to deep water off the swim raft. The location is ideal for privacy with 200 feet of shoreline and the natural forest to provide the solitude of having your own private spot on Lake Muskoka. A canoe, paddle boat and floaty toys are provided for your enjoyment. There is a marina near the cottage where you can launch a boat for a small fee.

Please take a look at the location tab for local things to do.

Review of L. M.'s stay in Jul 2019

Guest Comments: We enjoyed our family vacation and enjoyed the cottage immensely. It is a very nice space for family and relaxation. We would like to point out the following....Upon arrival we had to clean the fridge but the the rest of the cottage was very clean. We were disappointed that the deck and furniture was very untidy. We cleaned the glass and deck floor. We also repaired one of the lake deck boards which was very unsafe to.leave as it was. The far right board on the bottom deck needs to be properly replaced. The ladder on the swim.platform needs to be tightened but we did not have a wrench. Upon arrival I picked up the wooden cutting board and it fell apart. Also the O in muskoka above the screen door came unglued. It is on the window shelf. All in all we had a great vacation and loved the cottage and area. We will seek your referrals next year. Thank you so much. Please pass on to the owners that they have a beautiful cottage and we enjoyed our stay.

CCR Reply: Thank you for your feedback. Without this input we would not be able to know and affect repairs and changes. We would love to have you come back and will be in touch.

Review of L. B.'s stay in Jul 2019

Guest Comments: Only suggestion I have to the cottage owner is that a crew came by to clean the eavestroughs and mow the lawn. They did not announce that they were there nor did they introduce themselves. They cleaned the eaves by blowing the stuff off the roof. It went all over the linens on the lines, all over our vehicles/decks and all the dust went inside the cottage as we did not even get a chance to close up the doors/windows. After they left we spent over 2 hours cleaning off the decks and vehicles of sticky pines and sap pockets. Then had to clean the inside of the cottage as the dust was incredible. We appreciate that maintenance needs to be done on the cottage but it would have been considerate of the crew there to advise us of what they were doing to eliminate a lot of hassle after the fact. Thank you.

CCR Reply: Hello L, I am, so sorry to hear this. It is definitely on our list of debrief items with our staff. Don
