About the property

Welcome to “The Point,” a remarkable property that has served as a cherished summer home for successive generations since 1887. This is a unique opportunity as it marks the first time this extraordinary estate has been on market in over a century. Nestled on one of the earliest inhabited islands on Lake Muskoka, The Point boasts unparalleled views and breathtaking sunsets that will leave you in awe. This lakeside summer cottage circa 1946 is full of old Muskoka warmth and charm, with four bedrooms, a peaceful Muskoka room, a wood-burning fireplace, an outdoor shower, and a large, unfinished storage area underneath the cottage. The property includes a waterside bunkie and a single-slip boathouse. Explore walking trails, swim in secluded coves, and relax on the beautiful deck overlooking the water. The Point holds a significant place in local history, having once served as a stopping point for the RMS Seguin steamship. With its rich history and stunning land, it is truly an idyllic Muskoka retreat. This property also has severance potential for those looking to develop a family compound.
