About the property

This renovated, amenity-rich condo is nestled in Muskoka’s historic Bigwin Inn, offering a rare chance to enjoy all the highlights of cottage living with none of the hassle. Park your car and board the condo’s ferry for the five-minute ride to Bigwin Island, the geographic heart of Lake of Bays. Inside the unit, you’ll find a furnished suite complete with a fireplace, hardwood floors, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, ample storage, and a spacious bedroom that comfortably sleeps four to six. There is plenty to enjoy in the property’s shared outdoor spaces: dockside loungers, covered walkways, multiple terraces, and sports courts for basketball, tennis, beach volleyball and more. In the winter, hop on your skis or snowmobile and then head in for a hot sauna. This property offers the authentic Muskoka experience, where you can cook dinner on your own private barbecue, use your own private boat slip, and build bonfires under the stars. The idyllic location was handpicked from open wilderness in 1915 for a luxury resort that hosted the likes of Duke Ellington and the Kennedys. The guest accommodations were reimagined as Muskoka’s first resort condo in 1969. With its heritage buildings, stunning stonework, towering trees, and expansive lakefront, this property will enchant and exceed the highest expectations.
