About the property

Framing the southern tip of Taylor Island on Lake Muskoka, this property boasts an exquisite stretch of shore spanning approximately 1,074 feet and a level of privacy that is very rarely achieved on the mainland. Family-held for three quarters of a century, the property has picture-perfect rocky shores, beaches, and forests of towering trees. An open-concept main cottage captures sweeping lake vistas. Well-appointed and well-maintained, the cottage boasts a bright interior with three bedrooms—two with lakeside balcony walkouts and one primary with an ensuite. An inviting interior serves up vaulted ceilings, a sun-filled kitchen with a skylight and generous prep island, and a spacious sunken living room with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. For extended accommodation, there is an original two-bedroom waterside guest cottage, as well as a grandfathered forest-view bunkie. Multiple docks along the shore allow both morning and evening sun, ideal for swimming and boat docking at all times of day. The land also has toddler-friendly sandy shores and a beachy cove. Every vantage point of the land offers gorgeous, extended lake views. Bookending one boundary is the original Muskoka boathouse, and on the lee side of the island is a special 154-foot outlook with wide-open lake vistas. Minutes to mainland, fully furnished, exceptionally maintained buildings—this property is truly a Taylor Island treasure.
