Year Round Sunsets! Panoramic island-dotted view towards Beaumaris. It’s time for this lovingly cherished and maintained island cottage property to be passed on to a new family. Perfectly positioned on the west side of Eilean Gowan Island, the elevated cottage site provides supreme privacy and unparalleled westerly sunset views.
This 1.22-acre property consists of 2 parcels and is located on a gently curving point with mature trees and a granite shoreline. The cottage features wide plank pine flooring, four bedrooms + loft with queen bed, three washrooms including a large primary bedroom with ensuite, and two huge decks for outside dining, lounging about and entertaining. The Great Room style kitchen, dining, and living areas offer ample family dining and entertaining space. The finished lower level, with direct access to the lower deck, features a private bedroom, washroom, and extensive additional entertainment space that can accommodate overflow sleeping space if needed.
The lovely covered, water’s edge Tea House is the current owner’s favourite place to enjoy an afternoon cocktail, read a book, or take in that evening’s sunset. The 1-slip dock, with additional outside docking for guests, has been rebuilt and expanded with new steel piles. Mainland boat docking at Spirit Bay Marina or other nearby marinas is only a 5-minute boat ride away. 400-acre
Eilean Gowan Island is the 2nd largest of the Lake Muskoka islands, and this property offers direct access to the extensive hiking trails that traverse the island’s interior.

At Spirit Bay Marina, you can enjoy the summer yoga classes or get a treat from the food truck while gassing up the boat. Also, at the marina is an active tennis club ( requires a membership ). Golf at Kirrie Glen is only a 5-minute boat ride away. This is your chance to become part of the historic Tri-Island cottaging community!
