The Property

    Expansive island featuring 4 adjacent lots

    The Muskoka Island Retreat is a vast private property featuring 4 adjacent lots on beautiful Eilean Gowan Island near the town of Bracebridge. The lots are situated in a large semi-private bay with close to 900FT of sprawling shoreline.

    The lot featuring the main cottage sits on the arm of a thin peninsula so has the added advantage of water on both sides. The front bay facing south east has stunning sunrises and is protected from the prevailing westerly winds. The back bay faces north and allows for partial views of the sunset.

    The other 3 lots have been left undeveloped to provide privacy and tranquility to enjoy this exceptional secluded bay.

    Unique to Eilean Gowan is the protected centre of the island (over 250 acres) which has been left in a land trust. This nature reserve is managed by the Muskoka Heritage Foundation who have created several hiking trails throughout the island for the use of cottagers to enjoy nature walks and runs.

    Built as a family compound, the Muskoka Island Retreat features a newly renovated Pan-Abode Cottage impeccably built from Western Red Cedar (imported from Surrey, BC) using tongue and groove. The four bedroom Pan-Abode is positioned on the arm of the peninsula, nestled in trees and showcasing unparalleled lake views from all sides of the cottage.

    This truly rare property also includes three sleeping cabins to accommodate family and friends.

    The property is truly secluded with no clear view of any neighbours.

    Entertain your guests on the newly painted deck and take in a beautiful sunset with a glass of wine and the sound of crickets chirping as your soundtrack of life.

    Head down to the dock, cozy up on a Muskoka chair, marvel in a sun rise, enjoy a swim or water sport of your choice.

    Breathe in tranquility.
