Hidden away on the shore of Peninsula Lake, close to Algonquin Park and a short drive to Huntsville, this gem of a cottage will be your place to recharge as you enjoy the beauty of Muskoka.

Idlehour Cottage is a peaceful spot with a wonderful view of the lake and 460 feet of waterfront. The south-facing deck will provide you with morning sun, while a second deck faces the lake and is a place to find shade when you need it. If you prefer, the large screened sun porch (Muskoka Room) has ample space to sit and chat, read a book, play board games, or eat a casual meal as you watch the sun sparkle on the water.

Idlehour has four spacious bedrooms; three on the upper level and one on the lower level. There is a queen bed in three of the four rooms and the forth bedroom has two singles.

Lovingly finished throughout in knotty pine, there is plenty of seating area in the living room. A large pine dining room table sits next to the large windows looking out to the lake. A fully-equipped kitchen runs off the dining room and has a door leading out to the front deck. There is one four-piece bathroom on this main level.

The lower level of the cottage with access to the front yard, has a second space for relaxing, equipped with a 40-inch LED television and BluRay player, dartboard and CD player - a great spot for the teenagers. There is a new three-piece bathroom.

The cottage property is quite level, and has plenty of room for games or for exploring among the trees. Follow the gently winding path to the lake, where you can access the water with its shallow entry, and sand and pebble bottom. A dock extends 50 feet out into the lake, next to the dock is a personal boat launch. No need to drive the boat to a public boat launch as this property makes it very convenient. There is a community walking trail that goes through the cottage property along the shoreline.

A canoe is provided at the cottage, along with a fishing boat. A large boat launching area is available at Tally Ho Resort is just across the lake. Peninsula Lake connects to a chain of lakes that provide 70 kilometres of boating on Fairy Lake (Huntsville Marina) , Lake Vernon, and through a set of locks to the Muskoka River and Mary Lake. A short drive from Idlehour Cottage will take you to Lake of Bays if you would like to launch your boat at the South Portage Access and explore what this lake has to offer.

A half hour drive will take you to Algonquin Park, where you will find hiking trails, beaches for swimming, or a Nature Centre to explore. You can explore the nearby historical site of the old Portage Flyer Train that used to run overland to Lake of Bays. The difficult part of your holiday will be choosing from the many activities that will be available to you!
