Birch Island

Great value on Lake Muskoka’s Birch Island! Wonderful family cottage! Well constructed, well designed, winterized, 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage in very good condition. Nicely elevated to maximize the view and privacy. Easy, protected 5 to 10-minute boat ride from multiple marinas. The dock is well positioned away from the prevailing winds to allow for easy docking.

Many cottagers and year-round residents call Lake Muskoka their home, but did you know that it is the largest and southernmost of the major Muskoka lakes? It is about 18 miles in length and about eight miles across at the widest point. Lake Muskoka is over 210 feet at its deepest point and receives the waters of the two upper lakes, Lakes Rosseau and Joseph. There are nearly 150 islands in Lake Muskoka.  Birch Island is located between Pine Island and Eileen Gowan towards the Bracebridge end of the Lake. It is convenient to a number of marinas for docking and trips for ice cream!

Benefits of an Island Cottage

You definitely get more value for your cottage-buying dollar once you ditch the road. Generally, you will see larger lot sizes and more privacy. Owning a cottage on an island is at first an adventure. Eventually, it becomes a lifestyle you adapt to and grow to love. The romantic vision of boating off to your own retreat becomes the goal each weekend and you really appreciate the lower taxes as well!
