Lakefront cottage with kitchen and balcony
Boathouse living offers beautiful panoramic views of the lake from every side. Enjoy peaceful nights as you listen to the soothing sound of the water/loons in our upper scale boathouse, built directly on the water of popular Skeleton Lake. Known as 'Muskoka's Best Kept Secret', in the heart of Muskoka, Skeleton Lake offers sandy swimming coves, great fishing, water sports, hiking and warm summer sunsets.

There are two kayaks, canoe, paddle board and swim toys to enjoy your travels around the little islands that are seen from the boathouse. Fishing rods are available. There is a boat slip available. Please review documentation for appropriate boat size. A boat launch is only one bay away! -Please note we also have a two bedroom cottage on Skeleton Lake.

Beautiful Spot
Beautiful location and top notch accommodations. This is a great little getaway spot. Accommodations were exactly as described and host was very accommodating. Views are spectacular, especially with the fall colours. Will return again next season, hopefully earlier in the season to explore the outdoors a little more.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely place/environment
A really lovely spot. Lorrie has made the place sooooo beautiful. Kayaking around the small islands was fantastic. I even kayaking to the other side of the lake! The only nit picky thing is the couch is not comfortable. We had friends stay with us one night and that was one thing we noticed. Other than that - perfection. :)

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful boathouse on Skeleton Lake
Thoroughly enjoyed our week on Skeleton Lake. Had a minor issue that was addressed immediately. Missing the sound of the water already!
