Bosley Real Estate Ltd.

On a pristine lake about a 20-minute drive from Huntsville near Algonquin Provincial Park, cottages often fetch more than $1-million. So the $699,000 price tag on this property drew three quick offers this June.

“The market is so hot right now as a direct result of the pandemic,” agent Jeanette Grant said, “so cottage country prices are on the rise.”

“Properties can range up to $3-million, depending on what lake you’re on in this immediate area. One listed for $2-million on Lake of Bays [in July] and sold the same day in multiple offers.”

What they got

A wood stove keeps the main floor toasty when temperatures drop, and the cottage boasts an open concept kitchen.

Directly on Fox Lake, this four-season, 1,080-square-foot cottage on a 510-by-112-foot lot has two bedrooms, one bathroom and an open concept kitchen. There’s also a wide deck off the living room and a screened-in Muskoka room. A wood stove keeps the main floor toasty when temperatures drop.

The basement is unfinished, but there’s a solar-powered, one-room bunk house and an outhouse. A tiered backyard leads to a long dock and beach with south and east exposures.

“It had an unusual 510 feet of shoreline and nice shallow entry into the water, and with nothing across the lake from it,” Ms. Grant said. “There’s complete privacy.”

“The shoreline for the average property is more in the 100- to 200-foot range.”

“It was newly built and only finished a year or so ago, with really high-quality construction and great design,” Ms. Grant said.

“It has a really cute bunkie and an adorable outhouse.”
